THE APE-MAN'S STRATEGY ~ 1933.03.19
land, rich in crops and cattle, had long been blessed with peace and plenty.
Then one night, a vagabond made his fire against the cold wind. The sparks
caught in the wheat-fields and the flames spread, driving panic-stricken
families from their homes. As the Princess Nikotris looked out from her
tower in the palace it seemed that the whole country was on fire. By the
statue of the fallen ape-god Thoth, people clung together in fear of impending
doom. Presently Tutamken's monkeys returned without their master. It was
an evil omen and the high priest confirmed the belief of people that unless
Tarzan returned with the sacred apes, the land was indeed doomed.
Deep in the jungle, Tutamken waited until dawn when the apes, weary
from the death dance, were going off to sleep. Then he swung noiselessly
to the tree where Tarzan slept. "The anger of the gods is upon us," said
Tutamken. "Only you and the apes can save us." But Tarzan would not return
to the palace where his brother-apes were murdered.
When Tutamken reported the failure of his mission the Princess Nikotris
consulted the oracles and announced, "It is the will of the gods that I
myself go to Tarzan and bring him back to save our people."
