THE ELEPHANT ~ 1934.04.15 ~ #162
the fierce leader of the wild dogs sprang at Tarzan's throat with fangs
bared, the Ape-man dealt a mortal blow with is sharp knife. When they witnessed
the swift doom of their leader, the others of the pack knew Tarzan for
their strongest foe, and singled him out for attack. The two soldiers of
the pharaoh's bodyguard gave him aid, but the cowardly henchmen of the
high priest sought to escape, leaving their comrades to the vengeance of
the pack. But as they fled, they heard in front of them the trumpeting
of a wild elephant, and new fear seized them.
Then they were startled by a wild, triumphant cry from
Tarzan, the elephant bellowed in answer, and charged toward him. Once Tarzan
had saved Tantor the elephant from a trap, and Tantor remembered; so when
he saw the Ape-man menaced by the rebels of the jungle, he lunged into
the fray. Tantor trampled the savage dogs under foot, and with his powerful
trunk he flung them against great trees, until at last they were vanquished.
Then, obeying Tarzan, Tantor summoned two more elephants from the jungle.
Their broad backs were laden with the chests of gold for the triumphant
journey to the city. But when the caravan came to an open expanse in the
forest, a brigand sentry spied it from a watchtower of the hidden stockade,
and cried and alarm. And the outlaws streamed from the gate vowing to recover
their rich loot and wreak vengeance on its captors!
