XXIV Read the story and retell it following the outline given below. Make a list of the words and word combinations in the text which you could use to develop each point:
THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW
On the eastern shore of the Hudson River there is a little valley, among high hills, which is one of the quietest places in the whole
world. The first white people who came to live there were the Dutch settlers of the seventeenth century, and since that time the valley has been known by the name of Sleepy Hollow.
In this valley there lived a schoolmaster whose name was Icha-bod Crane. He had come there from another state to teach the children of the neighbourhood to read, write and sing.
Ichabod Crane was tall and very thin, with narrow shoulders, long arms and legs, and hands that reached a mile out of his sleeves. His head was small and flat at the top, with big ears, large green eyes, and a long sharp nose; on his long thin neck it looked like a weather-cock.
All the women of the village believed that he was a man of great learning, for he often read aloud to them his favourite book, "The History of New England Witchcraft". It was the only book he had ever read through from cover to cover, and he firmly believed everything it said.
It was always a pleasure to Ichabod to pass the long winter evenings with the old Dutch wives as they sat spinning by the fire. He listened to their tales of ghosts, and the story of a headless horseman made a deep impression on him every time he heard it.
In the same village lived Katrina Van Tassel, the daughter and only child of a rich Dutch farmer. She was not only the richest but also the prettiest girl in the neighbourhood. She was a coquette, too, and wore lots of gold ornaments which had been handed down from mother to daughter for generations.
No wonder Ichabod lost, his heart to Katrina especially after he had visited her father's farm. Everything on his farm was comfortable, happy and in good order. Ichabod was delighted to see the fat meadow lands, the rich fields of rye, of buckwheat, and Indian corn and the orchards full of ripe fruit. His mouth watered when he thought of roast pig with apples, goose in gravy, duck with onion sauce - all his favourite dishes, not to mention ham and bacon, which he loved most of all. From the moment that he saw all these riches, he began to make plans and invent ways for winning the heart of the farmer's daughter. However, he had a whole army of rivals.
Ichabod's most serious rival was a young man Brom Van Brunt by name, the hero of Sleepy Hollow and the surrounding villages. Brom was famous for his skill as a horseman. He was foremost at all races and cock-fights, and he attended all the public gatherings near and far. He was also a constant visitor at Van Tassel's mansion, and it was whispered that Katrina was not quite indifferent to him.
Ichabod Crane was clever enough to understand that he could not fight the battle openly, he, therefore, made his advances in a quiet and gentle manner. Being Katrina's s-inging-teacher, he was able to visit Van Tassel's farmhouse as often as he liked. Brom had fewer chances of seeing the girl.
On a fine afternoon in autumn, Ichabod was sitting on his high stool, like a king on his throne, watching over his pupils as they repeated their lessons.
The stillness of the schoolroom was suddenly interrupted by the entrance of a messenger boy who had brought Ichabod an invitation 'to come to a party at Van Tassel's.
As soon as the boy went away, Ichabod told the pupils to be quick and finish their lessons, and the whole school was let out an hour before the usual time. The boys ran out shouting at the top of their voices.
Ichabod stayed behind and spent half an hour brushing his best and only suit and combing his hair before a broken looking-glass which hung in the school-room. Then he went to his neighbour, borrowed a horse and rode out like a knight in search of adventures. His horse was an old plough-horse with a long thin neck and a head like a hammer. It was blind in one eye and, strange as it may seem, was called Gunpowder.
It was late in the afternoon when he arrived at Van Tassel's farmhouse, which was already crowded with friends and neighbours. As usual, Brom Van Brunt was the hero of the scene. .
A world of wonders met the eye of Ichabod Crane as he entered the parlour. On the table there stood plates full of cakes and gingerbread; there were honey cakes and apple pies and pumpkin pies. Big slices of ham and smoked beef made his head swim. Ichabod did not hurry; he tasted every dish in turn and went on eating and drinking long after the others had finished.
And then the music from the hall called the guests to dance. Ichabod was happy beyond words, because Katrina agreed to be his partner. During the dance Brom Van Brunt sat by himself in a corner, jealously looking on.
When the dance was over, Ichabod joined a group of older people who sat smoking at one end of the verandah. They were talking about old times and telling long stories and tales of ghosts and witches. Most of the stories, however, were about the favourite ghost of Sleepy Hollow, the Headless Horseman, who, as they said, had lately been seen again in the valley.
After the party broke up Ichabod stayed behind. He wanted to have a little private talk with Katrina before going home. It is difficult to say what happened during this interview, but in a few minutes Ichabod ran out of the house, and without looking to left or right, went straight to the stable. With a kick of his boot, he woke up his horse Gunpowder. Then he jumped on its back and rode off.
Sad and heavy-hearted, Ichabod rode home. The night was dark: there was no moon. All the stories of ghosts and witches he had heard that evening were fresh in his memory. He felt very lonely. Suddenly he heard a groan: his teeth clattered and his heart began to beat fast. He wished he could get home as soon as possible. He kicked his old horse, and the animal dashed forward. But just by a small brook it stopped so suddenly that Ichabod nearly fell over his horse's head. In the dark shadows of the trees he saw something big and black. The hair on the teacher's head stood on end. To run and fly was out of the question. So, with a show of courage he asked in a shaky voice,
"Who are you?" Receiving no reply, he repeated his question in a still shaky voice. Again there was no answer. Just then the black thing moved forward, and though the night was dark Ichabod could see a tall man sitting on a black horse, but the rider was headless! Ichabod's fears increased when he saw that the rider was carrying his head on the front part of the saddle. The horror-stricken teacher kicked Gunpowder fiercely, hoping to leave the other horse behind. But it was too late. The rider on the black horse rose in his saddle and threw his head straight at Ichabod. The big round head struck him and the poor teacher fell headlong into the dust. Gunpowder, the black horse and its rider passed by like a whirlwind.
The next morning the old horse was found without its saddle, eating grass near its master's gate. But Ichabod did not appear. The boys assembled at the schoolhouse, but the schoolmaster was not there. The village people went out to look for him. The tracks of horses' hoofs led them to the small brook where Ichabod's old black hat was found, and close beside it a shattered pumpkin. The place was searched but the body of the schoolmaster was not to be d iscovered.
Shortly after Ichabod disappeared, Brom Van Brunt married Katrina; and whenever the story of the unfortunate schoolmaster was related, he always burst into a hearty laugh at the mention of the pumpkin, which led some people to suspect that he knew more about the matter than he chose to tell.
- Ichabod Crane, the schoolmaster, lives in the quiet village of Sleepy Hollow.
- Crane falls in love with Katrina Van Tassel and her riches.
- Brom Van Brunt is his chief rival.
- Crane is invited to a party at Van Tassel's mansion.
- Ichabod Crane enjoys the party.
- Sad and heavy-hearted the schoolmaster rides home.
- Crane meets the headless horseman and is scared out of his wits.
