THE SIGN OF THE SCARAB ~ 1933.09.03
he swung his knife to cut the rope, the thug laughed at the prospect of
seeing Tarzan and Amnis hurled to the rocks below. In a flash the ape-man
drew his knife and hurled it. The Egyptian cried out as the blade struck
and his own knife dropped from his hand. Tarzan caught it in full flight.
Triumphantly he shouted his ape-cry of victory. The other agents of the
queen, surprised by that wild cry, ran toward their wounded companion.
At the edge of the precipice they saw Tarzan and Amnis and far below Tutamken
and Von Harben witness the ape-man's peril.
From his necklace the young pharaoh tore the royal
scarab and fixed it to an arrow. Placing his feet on the grip of Tarzan's
great bow he pulled with mighty strength. The arrow shot high above the
precipice and landed in the midst of the Egyptians. As they picked it up
to examine it. Tarzan vaulted in a flash to the top ledge, and seized one
of the thugs. But the ape-man halted in surprise as the thugs suddenly
knelt before him in supplication. "The Sun-God has sent us a sign from
heaven! By the sign of the scarab we worship you!"
