They have poisoned my p6-poo-poor Yankee, and Val-Valen-tine is a ruined man." At the same time he put hsis hands into his pockets, and pulled out his money, amouniting, he said, to "7' d!" Still looking fixedly at the moon, a sudden thought seemed to -rush across his mind, and striking the ground with his fist, he exelaiimed, "I'm not ruined ! Am I not ' our own c...
