CHAPTER XXII - The Living Huitzilopochtli

flash he was in the air, his spear pointing down at the collarbone of his enemy and gliding over his shoulder, as the opponent swerved under, and the war-yell resounded. The soldiers in the deep circle watched, fascinated, uttering the old low
in the deep cries.
And as the dance went on, Cipriano felt his strength increase and surge inside him. When all his limbs were glistening with sweat, and his spirit was at last satisfied, he was at once tired and surcharged with extraordinary power. Then he would throw his scarlet and dark serape around him, and motion other men to fight, giving his spear and shield to another officer or soldier, going himself to sit down on the ground and watch, by the firelight.

He encouraged them to dance the silent, concentrated dances to the drum, to dance for hours, gathering power and strength.
`If you know how to tread the dance, you can tread deeper and deeper, till you touch the middle of the earth with your
