it across the stream, where he snagged the limb of a tree on the opposite
After he had pulled the line taut Von Harben fastened it securely to
the trunk. Tarzan started across the improvised bridge, swinging hand over

through the air, and reached out toward a thick vine that overhung the
water. As he swung up on the vine, Tarzan found himself confronted by the
gleaming eyes of a great black panther.
