"Are they children, or gourds with Iejr»-tin3*» .them?" ; " ' ' · · · · · - · . O'Eellly looked, then turned his eyes away. He and Jacket had reached the heart of Mntanzns and *,eto 'facing; the public sqnare, the Plaza de I* UB-' ertad It was railed. Mntanzng appeared .poor and squalid; depresslngly irretoh'prf; its streets, were, foal. aiid the Plaza de la Llberfad--jritri mockery of a name--was crowded with n thronsr snch as It hsd. never, held In OTfeflly's time, a throng'of people ifho- ·were, without exception, gaunt, listless. ra?::e::. There : wai? oo"afternoon parnde ofrfinerv. 710 laughter, no noise; ' the benches were f^l, but thrlr occupants were silent, too sick or too wen* to more. Sor were there any romping children. Their were, to be sure, Tast numbers of undersized figures in the square, bnt one needed to-.lot* twice to realize that they were not pygmies or wiiTOed little old folks. It was not «tr«nge. that Jacket bfltj compared them to gourds with legs, :£or all were naked, and most of them had bodies swollen into the likeness of pods or calabashes. They looked, peculiarly jrrotesijue with their spidery legs and thin faces. · ·'. . -· O'Reilly panted* a .(lid" hnnfl aero** his eyes. "Just Seivc.i. !?e breathed. "Stop--she's one-of these!'* The reeooceijtra'doff overran'M«t»n- kas in an ·andean swarm; streets, and plains were congested with them, for ·BO attempt was-made, to confine, them to. their qtrartersJ Morning 1 brought them strenmlng; dcrffo-from the. sob-.

How they managed to exist, whence came the fo.xl that kept life in their miserable bodies, was a. mystery, erea to the citizens of the city; no organized effort l:r.d been made to euro for them and there was insufficient surplus food 'for-lis!t:fheir number::' Yer somehow they lived and lingered on. At the time of O'Reilly's arrival the right presented by these innoctlit victims-of war was appalling; it roused in him a : dull red 'rag«-nt the power which had vronght this crime and nt the men wL permitted it to continue. Spnln was a Christian nation, he reflected; she fiad : set up more crosses than any other, ,nnl yet beneath them she had butchered more people than all the nations of. the earth combined. This monstrous, coldly cnlctilcUns effort to destroy ttte entire Cuban peoplo teemed to him tin M»ckw5 Infamy of all, and he wondered if it .would be allowed to succeed; ...
