The trumpeter taken prisoner

A trumpeter was captured by his enemy in a battle.

When they were about to kill him, he begged them to have mercy on him.

"I am not a warrior," said he. "I only blow the trumpet. It cannot harm you; then why should you kill me?"

"You may not fight with a weapon," said the others, "but you encourage and guide your men to the fight."
