Strip story 1

Mark Twain, a famous American writer, liked to travel very much. Once he was travelling in France. He was going by train to one little town. That day Mark Twain was very tired and wanted to sleep. He asked conductor to wake him when the train  go to that town.

He said, “I am a heavy sleeper and I’ll probably protest loudly when you try to wake me up. Don’t listen to me, just put me off the train”.

Then Mark Twain went to sleep. When he woke up it was night. The train was in Paris already. Mark Twain understood that the conductor had forgotten to wake him up. He got very angry.

 “I have never been so angry in my life” he said to the conductor.

He looked at him and said, ”You are not as angry as the passenger whom I put off the train instead of you three hours ago”

Strip story 2

One day Mark Twain arrived at a railway station near New York. He wished to take the sleeper train.There were crowds of people on the platform and the long sleeper was full. Mark Twain asked the young man in the box-office if he could have two tickets.

 “No” the young man answered and shut the window. Mark Twain found a local official and asked him for a ticket.

 “No” came the answer.

Mark Twain got so angry after that answer, he said to his companion, “they talk to me like this because they didn’t know who I am”. If they knew…

 “Do you think it would help you?” His companion said.

That mas too much. Mark Twain found the same local official and told him what his name was. But the official turned his back. Just at that moment a young porter of a sleeping car looked at Mark Twain.

Strip story 3

Mark Twain the American writer came to a small town to give a lecture on literature. Before dinner he went for a walk and then went to a shop to buy something. When the shop-girl saw him, she thought that he was a man from another place, not from their town.

 “Are you a stranger?” asked a shop- girl.

 “Yes”, Mark Twain answered.

 “This is the first time I’ve been here. I like this town very much. I’ve already seen some interesting things. You choose a good time to come”, the shop-girl said.

 “Mark Twain is going to give a lecture. He writes books and gives lectures, you know. So many people like listen to him. Will you go to his lecture today?”

 “Oh, I hope so”.

 “Have you bought your ticket?”

 “Not yet, I always have to stand when that man lectures”.
