One evening I went out walking. I was alone. I became almost lost on the mountainside. I tried to find my own tracks back. Night came on. I had not reached the camp. A storm had been threatening all afternoon. Now it broke over the mountain top. For a while I could guide myself by the flashes of lightening. By midnight the storm had blown away. I could no longer see the trail. I could not go on blindly through the darkness. Then I heard something. It was the distant sound of cowbells. I headed towards the sound. I shouted as I went. Soon my shouts were answered. I saw a light. Then I saw a small farmhouse. The farmer came to meet me. He carried a lantern. How glad I was to see him! My clothes were wet. I was tired. He took me into the house. He started a fire. He gave me hot coffee. He gave me dry clothes. We talked for a while. I told him that I stayed at the camp. He said he would take me to the camp in the morning. Then he took me upstairs to a small bedroom. I slept until late next morning.

There are few moments in a man’s existence when he experiences so much ludicrous distress, or meets with so little charitable commiseration, as when he is in pursuit of his own hat. A vast deal of coolness, and a peculiar degree of judgment, are prerequisite in catching a hat. A man must not be precipitate, or he runs over it; he must not rush into the opposite extreme, or he loses it altogether. The best way is: to keep gently up with the object of pursuit, to be vary and cautious, to watch your opportunity well, get gradually before it, then make a rapid dive, seize it by the crown, and stick it firmly on your head, smiling pleasantly all the time, as if you thought it as good a joke as anybody else.

Neanderthal man has been the subject of much scientific investigation, as well as much popular misinformation. The origin of the term comes from a single skull bone found in a valley in Germany. The name of the valley is the Neander valley, and the German word for valley is thal, pronounced without the “h”. Homo, in Latin, means man; hence, Homo Neanderthalis, the man from the Neander valley. Soon after its discovery it was realized that this skull was definitely not human, at least in the way we think. People at that time imagined the Neanderthal man to be a primitive creature, almost like an ape, but able to walk. This image of a primitive brute, obviously far too unintelligent to compete against modern man, stuck for years. TEST TAKING STRATEGIES English Language Tests:  TEST TAKING STRATEGIES English Language Tests Archeological discoveries over the last several decades have changed much in the way we see Neanderthal man. Elaborate cave paintings, painted with natural dyes, depicting buffalo, deer, bears, and what appear to be human figures, have been discovered in Neanderthal caves in Europe. The scenes are painted in yellow, red and black colors, by a fine-tipped feather or brush. Clearly this creature was intelligent enough to be aware of not only its surroundings, but also its place in the world. The most shocking find is a burial site in the Middle East. A Neanderthal, estimated to be almost 60 years old at the time of death, was found buried with flowers and hunting tools. Not only did the Neanderthals take care of their elders, which allowed this fellow to reach what must have been a ripe old age, but also they understood death, and perhaps even contemplated an after-life. TEST TAKING STRATEGIES English Language Tests:  TEST TAKING STRATEGIES English Language Tests There has been even recent speculation that Neanderthal man might have had a spoken language, although there is no way to prove this. All in all, however, our view of Neanderthal man has changed a lot. Some scientists have even gone so far as to say that if a Neanderthal man were in the supermarket shopping, he would probably not even be noticed. * * From: ©MBA Center TOEFL Study Book
