SACRIFICE ~ 1934.12.02
the island savages fled in terror, believing the beasts were demons conjured
up by Tarzan, a lion charged at Princess Mihrama. The jungle lord, fighting
his way out of the engulfing wave of frantic Waioris, heard the maiden's
cry and saw her jeopardy. He climbed above the human tide and skipped along
the shoulders of the close-pressed horde as he might race through swaying
trees. Again on solid earth, he ran like the wind. A wild cry told him
that Bohgdu, his faithful ape had escaped too, and Tarzan called to him
Tarzan arrived as the lion leaped at the girl. He flung his weight against
the beast and plunged his knife through the tawny hide. As the lion lay
dead Tarzan commanded the ape to bear the princess away to some high tree
and deposit her there for safety.
When Bohgdu returned, the two dragged their friends free
from the frenzied savages, and Tarzan ordered them southward to the shore.
Then the ape-man retrieved the maiden and hurried through the treetops
to the waterside rendezvous. Far eastward along the beach, the party came
upon a small boat, guarded by two warriors. Tarzan and Bohgdu sprang upon
them, disarmed them, and hurled them into the sea. But when the fugitives
came to embark, they found that the tiny craft could not contain them all!
Two must remain on the island to brave the wrath of Dester Molu! "The ape
shall stay," said Tarzan calmly, " and I stay with him!"
