In the course（过程） of one of his lecture trips, Maik Twain arrived at a small town. Before dinner he went to a barber's shop to be shaved（刮脸）.
Are you a stranger？ asked he barber
“Yes，" Mark Twain replied This is the first time I have been here."
"You chose a good time to come, the barber continued."Mark Twain is going to make a lecture tonight, You'll go, I suppose."
“Oh, I guess so."
“ Have you bought your ticket？”
“ Not yet."
But everything is sold out. You'll have to stand.
“ How annoying（令人生气）！” Maik. Twain said with a sigh（叹息）·“I never saw such luck. I always have to stand when that fellow is giving lectures."
