THE FATE OF THE APE-MAN ~ 1932.12.25
the temple Tarzan was brought before the high priest and accused of killing
one of the sacred crocodiles, of slaying the palace panther, and of attacking
the pharaoh's son -- all offenses punishable by death. The ape-man understood
no word of the ancient Egyptian language that was spoken but he understood
what his fate would be as the high priest pronounced the sentence. Still
bound, as he had been when he lay wounded by the Egyptian arrows, Tarzan
was led away by the temple guard. He was brought before the great god,
Thoth, to make his peace. Priestesses were chanting a death dirge. After
going through a long black corridor, the ape-man suddenly came into the
briliant light of the outdoors and halted in surprise at the scene that
There sat the pharaoh and all his court. Alone confronting them stood
his friend, Erich Von Harben, condemned like Tarzan to death. As the two
friends exchanged signs of recognition, the monkey-man, Tutamken, came
rushing down the steps. Fiercely he lashed the ape-man. Then he took command
of the guard and Tarzan and Von Harben were led forth to their fate. The
bonds of the prisoners were unloosed. Then they were sent down a long wide
staircase to meet the fate that feindish minds had devised for those who
offended the gods of Egypt.
