It is their business to place darts (banderillas) in the neck ofthe bull when hecharges. The men behind are known as campanos. They do a lot of rough-and-tumble work, and an exciting feature of a Portuguese bull-fight istoletinafresh bull on a group of these campanos, who must rely on each other to attract the attention of the animal when one oftheir number ischased. Finally the bull is seized by the horns and eventually overpowered. The horsemen wearing hats are heralds; after saluting atthe President's box they disappear and do not return. The other men on horseback, with the immensely long sticks, are also campanos (see alsoColor Plate V).
