One Horrible Seen of Many In Mexico
In the Days of the Montezumaa.
Fifty-two years constituted the Arte
cycle. To this cycle was added a comple
ment of thirteen days, intended to make
the solar and civil years agree. It was be
lieved that the world would come to an end
on the last night of a cycle, and that the
gods, if merciful, would light their fires on
the distant mountains. If the world did
not coma to an end the Aztecs congratu
lated themselves that it would survive an
other cycle, and the thirteen compliment
ary days were passed with feasts, sacrifices
In the temple of Huitzilipochtli there
was to be a gladiatorial combat, which
was nothing less than a sacrifice. The six
ministers of t he ceremony were at hand.
Topiltzin. the chief among them, clad in a
crimson vestment, with a crown of vari
colored feathers, was performing the
duties that preceded a sacrifice to the god,
and the others, with whitiarobes bordered
with black, their faces hideous with som
ber pigment and mouths painted white,
assisted him. A crowd filled the stone
walls of the temple to witness the specta
cle, surging with impatience about the
temalcatl (or round, stone platform, eight
feet high) where the combat was to take
The victim, a prisoner of war, is brought
in. Armed with only i short spear and
shield, he is placed upon the temalcatl, tied
by one foot and confronted by an Aztec
Tvarrior fully armed. The flat nostrils of
:he victim are distended, his black eyes
burn with desperation; his coarse, black
hair strangled about his face, and his
thick, purple lips quiver as he views the
well armed soldier liefore him.
At a word they fall to the fray. The
spears clash and they fight like demons
the victim with the desperation of certain
death, the soldier to uphold his valor
among his comrades.
Suddenly, realizing how unequal the
contest, and that his fate is staled what
ever the outcome of that battle, the pris
oner throws away his shield and spear and
presents his breast to the soldier's weapon.
A pause, a blow, and the victim falls
heavily to t tie stone.
In a trice the priests, with frenzied
shouts and hair streaming aliout their de
moniacal faces are upon the temalcatl, and
have borne the dying man to a block of
green jasper, on whose convex surface
they throw him. This is the sacrificial
stone, and Toplitzin, who now takes the
name of the god to whom he sacrifices,
opens the breast of his victim, tears out his
heart and offers it, still palpitating, to the
Then the bleeding trophy is placed in the
hollow mouth of the idol Huitzilipochtli,
and the lips of the statue dautted with
blood. The dead man is decapitated and
his head dpo-,ited in the Tzompatli, an os
suary where the skulls of sacrificed pris
oners of war are set into the walls. The
soldier claims the liody for his own, and
bears it away for the delectation of him
self and his anthropophagical comrades.
The Aztec annals that come down to us
are glutted with scenes like this. Detroit
