CHAPTER XXII - The Living Huitzilopochtli

`Why? Why did they make all these things? How could they do it?
`Because, by cunning, they had got the secret of the second strength, which comes from behind the sun.
`And we had to be slaves, because we had only got the first strength, we had lost the second strength.
`Now we are getting it back. We have found our way again to the secret sun behind the sun. There sat Quetzalcoatl, and at last Don Ramon found him. There sits the red Huitzilopochtli, and I have found him. For I have found the second strength.
`When he comes, all you who strive shall find the second strength.
`And when you have it, where will you feel it?
`Not here!' - and he struck his forehead. `Not where the cunninggringos have it, in the head, and in their books. Not we. We are men, we are not spiders.
`We shall have it here!' - he struck his breast -`and here!' - he struck his belly -`and here!' - he struck his loins.
`Are we men? Can we not get the second strength? Can we not? Have we lost it forever?
`I say no! Quetzalcoatl is among us. I have found the red Huitzilopochtli. The second strength!
'When you walk or sit, when you work or lie down, when you eat or sleep, think of the second strength, that you must have it.
`Be very quiet. It is shy as a bird in a dark tree.
`Be very clean, clean in your bodies and your clothes. It is like a star, that will not shine in dirt.
`Be very brave, and do not drink till you are drunk, nor soil yourself with bad women, nor steal. Because a drunken man has lost his second strength, and a man loses his strength in bad women, and a thief is a coward, and the red Huitzilopochtli hates a coward.
`Try! Try for the second strength. When we have it, the others will lose it.'
Cipriano struggled hard with his army. The curse of any army is the having nothing to do. Cipriano made all his men cook and wash for themselves, clean and paint the barracks, make a great garden to grow vegetables, and plant trees whereever there was water. And he himself took a passionate interest
