CHAPTER VI - The Move Down the Lake

`Give us the money,' said the bandits.
`Oh, all right,' said the American. There were a few pesos only in the safe. He opened, showed them, and they took the money. '
`Now give us the rest,' they said.
`There is no more,' said the manager, in all sincerity; for Jose had not confessed to the thousand pesos.
The five peons then began to search the poor little office. They found a pile of red blankets - which they appropriated - and a few bottles of red wine - which they drank.
`Now,' they said, `give us the money.'
`I can't give you what there isn't to give,' said the manager.
`Good!' they said, and pulled out the hideous machetes, the heavy knives of the Mexicans.
Jose, intimidated, produced the suit-case with the thousand
pesos. The money was wrapped up in the corner of a blanket. `Now, come with us,' said the bandits. `Where to?' asked the manager, beginning at last to be scared. `Only out on to the hill, where we will leave you, so that you

away,' said the Indians.
Outside, in the bright moon, the air was chill. The American shivered, in his trousers and shirt and a pair of bedroom , slippers.
`Let me take a coat,' he said.

He took a blanket, and with two men holding his arms, he followed Jose, who was likewise held captive, out of the little gate, across the dust of the road, and up the steep little round hill on which the organ cactus thrust up their sinister clumps, like bunches of cruel fingers, in the moonlight. The hill was stony and steep, the going slow. Jose, a fat young man of twenty-eight, protested in the feeble manner of the well-to-do Mexicans.
At last they came to the top of the hill. Three men took Jose apart, leaving Bell alone near a cactus clump. The moon shone in a perfect Mexican heaven. Below, the big lake glimmered faintly, stretching its length towards the west. The air was so clear, the mountains across, thirty miles away, stood sharp and still in the moonlight. And not a sound nor a motion any
