CHAPTER XIX - The Attack on Jamiltepec

She ran blindly down the stairs, and fought to get the great iron bars from across the door, screaming all the time:
`Come! Somebody! Come to Don Ramonl He will die.'
A terrified boy and a woman appeared from the kitchen quarters. The door was opened, just as six horse-soldiers galloped into the courtyard. The officer leaped from his horse and ran like a hare, his revolver drawn, his spurs flashing, straight
through the doors and up the stairs, like a madman. When Kate got up the stairs again, the officer was standing with drawn revolver, gazing down at Ramon.
`He is dead?' he said, stupefied, looking at Kate.
`No !' she said. `It is only loss of blood.'
The officers lifted Ramon and laid him on the terrace. Then quickly they got off his blouse. The wound was bleeding thickly in the back.
`We've got to stop this wound,' said the lieutenant. `Where is Pablo?'
Instantly there was a cry for Pablo.
Kate ran into a bedroom for water, and she switched an old linen sheet from the bed. Pablo was a young doctor among the soldiers. Kate gave him the bowl of water and the towel, and was tearing the sheet into bands. Ramon lay naked on the floor, all streaked with blood. And the light was going.

With swift hands he washed the wound, peering with his nose almost touching it.
`It is not much!' he said.
Kate had prepared bandages and a pad. She crouched to hand them to the young man. The woman-servant set a lamp with a white shade on the floor by the doctor. He lifted it, peering again at the wound.
`Noi' he said. `It is not much.'
Then glancing up at the soldiers who stood motionless, peering down, the light on their dark faces.
`Tu!' he said, making a gesture.
Quickly the lieutenant took the lamp, holding it over the inert body, and the doctor, with Kate to help, proceeded to staunch and bind the wound. And Kate, as she touched the soft, inert flesh of Ramon, was thinking to herself: This too is he, this silent body! And that face that stabbed the throat of
