CHAPTER XIX - The Attack on Jamiltepec

and two men clashed in mid-air, as the unseen fellow leaped up from the stairs. Two men in a crash went down on the floor, a revolver went off, terrible limbs were writhing.
Ramon's revolver was on the floor. But again there was a shot from the tangled men, and a redness of blood suddenly appearing out of nowhere, on the white cotton clothing, as the two men twisted and fought on the floor.
They were both big men. Struggling on the ground, they looked huge. Ramon had the bandit's revolver-hand by the wrist. The bandit, with a ghastly black face with rolling eyes and sparse moustache, had got Ramon's naked arm in his white teeth, and was hanging on, showing his red gums, while with his free hand he was feeling for his knife.
Kate could not believe that the black, ghastly face with the sightless eyes and biting mouth was conscious. Ramon had him clasped round the body. The bandit's revolver fell, and the fellow's loose black hand scrabbled on the concrete, feeling for it. Blood was flowing over his teeth. Yet some blind superconsciousness seemed to possess him, as if he were a devil, not a man.
His hand nearly touched Ramon's revolver. In horror Kate ran and snatched the weapon from the warm concrete, running away as the bandit gave a heave, a great sudden heave of his body, under the body of Ramon. Kate raised the revolver. She hated that horrible devil under Ramon as she had never hated in her life. Yet she dared not fire.
Ramon shouted something, glancing at her. She could not understand. But she ran round, to be able to shoot the man under Ramon. Even as she ran, the bandit twisted with a great lunge of his body, heaved Ramon up, and with his short free hand got Ramon's own knife from the belt at the groin, and stabbed.
Kate gave a cry! Oh, how she wanted to shoot! She saw the knife strike sideways, slanting in a short jab into Ramon's back. At the same moment there was a stumble on the stairs, and another black-headed man was leaping on to the roof from the turret.
She stiffened her wrist and fired without looking, in a sudden second of pure control. The black head came crashing at her. She recoiled in horror, lifted the revolver and fired again.
