War Paint is helping the men pillage through the homes and belongings of the rich.  Demetrio slept as they rummaged.  Luis saw a box that was missed by the others and found two diamonds inside.  He quickly placed them in his coat pocket. 

When Demetrio woke up, Luis asked him if they could keep from making such a mess.  Demetrio allows them to continue.  As they continue to ransack the house, Manteca was boiling some corn on the cob, using books and paper as his fuel.  Demetrio has another beer and soon falls asleep again.

Pancracio sold the books to a man who wanted them.  Then Blondie came to praise Demetrio.  He continued his praise on his Demetrio's men as well, and soon a fresh case of beer was brought out.  War Paint enters the room in a beautiful silk dress.  They all laugh at her, but she doesn't seem to mind.

More and more men came in groups and Demetrio told his "most notable feats of arms" to them in detail.  Then a banquet began which was to celebrate Demetrio's victory at Zacatecas and his promotion to general.
