The red-faced man raised himself up on one elbow and said: "No; I hadn't figured it out, but I'm something of a calculator all the same, and if you don't go away about 137yards in nine and ahalf seconds I'll hit you seventeen times and make you see 42,000 stars. I've just had four teeth pulled .for 5dol, and you'd better go aw ay before the arithmetic class gets over the ropes and calls time."

He says the Spaniards turn the folks Out of their homes to die, And they ain't no use denyin' it, For papa wouldn't lie!
