BEHIND THE VEIL ~ 1933.06.04
was Tarzan's sorrow when he saw that his arrow had struck a friend. Tearing
the arrow from the flesh the ape-man lifted Prince Tutamken and carried
him off to care for his wound.
Confident that Tarzan would rescue him and unconscious of the fact that
Tutamken was unable to deliver the message, Erich Von Harben was being
prepared for THE DEATH. Mobs surged about the temple to witness the human
sacrifice. The god to whom sacrifice was to be made was hidden behind a
great veil. Except for pharaoh and the priests no living person had ever
looked upon that dread countenance. But the hour for unveiling was at hand.
A giant Egyptian was about to strike the signal gong. On the roof of the
temple, the Princess Nikotris looked in vain across the desert for a sign
of Tarzan coming to the rescue. When the gong struck she rushed in panic
to her father, the pharaoh.
"Oh father! Let me be sacrificed instead of Erich!" she pleaded. "Silence!"
he replied. "The god demands stranger flesh." There was a clash of cymbals
and frenzied shrieks filled the temple as Erich, covered by a black robe,
was led in. The great veil was drawn back, revealing to the populace the
devouring god MOLOCH known to the Egyptians as BAL.
