A few days later, 时间从句when the terror 分词定语caused by the executions had died down, some of the animals remembered–or thought they remembered–宾语从句that the Sixth Commandment decreed “No animal shall kill any other animal.” And 让步从句though no one cared to mention it in the hearing of the pigs or the dogs, it was felt 主语从句that the killings 定语从句which had taken place did not square with this. Clover asked Benjamin to read her the Sixth Commandment, and 时间从句when Benjamin, as usual, said 宾语从句that he refused to meddle in such matters, she fetched Muriel. Muriel read the Commandment for her. It ran: “No animal shall kill any other animal WITHOUT CAUSE.” Somehow or other, the last two words had slipped out of the animals’ memory. But they saw now 宾语从句that the Commandment had not been violated; for clearly there was good reason for killing the traitors 定语从句who had leagued themselves with Snowball.

Throughout the year the animals worked even harder 比较从句than they had worked in the previous year. To rebuild the windmill, with walls twice as thick as before, and to finish it by the appointed date, together with the regular work of the farm, was a tremendous labour. There were times when it seemed to the animals that they worked longer hours and fed no better 比较从句than they had done in Jones’s day. On Sunday mornings Squealer, 分词状语holding down a long strip of paper with his trotter, would read out to them lists of figures 分词proving 宾语从句that the production of every class of foodstuff had increased by two hundred per cent, three hundred per cent, or five hundred per cent, as the case might be. The animals saw no reason to disbelieve him, especially 原因从句as they could no longer remember very clearly 宾语从句what conditions had been like before the Rebellion. All the same, there were days 定语从句when they felt 宾语从句that they would sooner have had less figures and more food.

All orders were now issued through Squealer or one of the other pigs. Napoleon himself was not seen in public 比较从句as often as once in a fortnight. 时间从句When he did appear, he was attended not only by his retinue of dogs but by a black cockerel 定语从句who marched in front of him and acted as a kind of trumpeter, 分词状语letting out a loud “cock-a-doodle-doo” before Napoleon spoke. Even in the farmhouse, it was said, 主语从句Napoleon inhabited separate apartments from the others. He took his meals alone, with two dogs to wait upon him, and always ate from the Crown Derby dinner service 定语从句which had been in the glass cupboard in the drawing-room. It was also announced 主语从句that the gun would be fired every year on Napoleon’s birthday, as well as on the other two anniversaries.
