Frank W. Woolworth was born in Rodman, New York, in 1852. His family was very poor farmers, and there was never enough to eat. Frank decided he did not want to be a farmer. He took a short business course, and went to work as a salesman in a large city.
Woolworth realized he had a natural skill for displaying goods to arouse people’s interest, but he soon learned something more important. One day his boss told him to sell some odds and ends(小商品) for as much as he could get. Frank put all these things on one table with a sign which saont-familid: FIVE CENTS EACH. People fought and pushed to buy the things and the table was soon cleared.
Soon afterwards, Woolworth opened his own store, selling goods at five and ten cents. But he had another lesson to learn before he became successful. That is, if you want to make money by selling low-price goods, you have to buy them in large quantities directly from the factories. Once, for example, Woolworth went to Germany and placed an order for knives. The order was so large that the factory had to keep running 24 hours a day for a whole year. In this way, the price of the knives was cut down by half.
By 1919, Woolworth had over 1, 000 stores in the USA and Canada, and opened his first store in London. He made many millions and his name became famous throughout the world. He always ran his business according to strict rules, of which the most important was: ”THE CUSTOMER (顾客) IS ALWAYS RIGHT.”

Every August on the island of Heimaey, off the southern coast of Iceland(冰岛), young people often take a walk along the streets throughout the night. What’s more, their parents allow them to stay out. Why? The children of Heimaey are going to save young puffins—small black-and-white seabirds.
The cliffs(悬崖) above the town are home to a large group of puffins. The birds dig holes all around the cliffs. These holes are their homes. Their young stay in the holes for about seven weeks. Then they begin to leave. Some move slowly on their undeveloped wings and feet down to the northern Atlantic Ocean that surrounds Heimaey. There, they swim, which they can do naturally, and learn to dive for fish. Others, however, may lose their way at night and find themselves in the town instead. On the ground, the young seabirds are in trouble. Because their wings are not fully developed, they cannot take off quickly to sea and safety. The birds then become a good meal for cats and other animals.
For many years, islanders have helped the young puffins. Early at night in late August, children carrying thick paper boxes and lig; tab-hts hurry to the seashore to catch puffins. They spend most of the night running after the birds. They put the birds they’ve caught in boxes and take good care of them.
The next morning the children take the puffins to the ocean and set them free. The birds will live at sea until they are at least two years old. Then they will return to the cliffs to build homes of their own for their families.
Will the children of Heimaey always come to save puffins? “Yes, “answer the boys.”We look forward to it. The best time for us is setting the birds free.”
