AT THE GRAVEYARD OF THE ELEPHANTS ~ 1932.08.21

When Tarzan's friend, von Harben, reached the place where the great elephants of Africa have gone for centuries to die his men refused to follow. The graveyard of the elephants was sacred. For man to enter into it was forbidden. In panic von Harben's men fled headlong. Von Harben went on, a lone brave figure. . . and entered into the fabled region where the greatest of the world's wealth in ivory lay untouched by human hands.

He was startled by a voice crying in French, "Who's there?" He turned to find himself covered by a rifle. "The ivory is mine! All of it's mine! Nobody else shall touch it! I am rich! I am the richest man in the world!" cried the stranger. Then, with a shout of wild hatred, he fired.

Von Harben returned the shot as he fell. Then he tore a strip from his shirt and wrote in blood from his wound, "Help! At the elephant's graveyard. Erich." He tied the message tight to little Nkima, hoping Tarzan would get it, then he fainted. WILL TARZAN REACH  HIM IN TIME?
