upon tho broad Atlantic.
BACK lb THE piustrrrvB.
AS TAItZAN struck tho water, his first
JlX Impulse was to swim clear of tho
ship nnd possible danger from her pro
pellers Ho knew whom to thank for his
present predicament, nnd .as ho lay In
the sea, Just supporting himself by n
gentlo movement of his hands, his chief
emotion was ono of chagrin that ho had
been so easily bested by llokolt.
Ho lay thus for some time, watching
tho receding and rapldly-dlmlnlshlng
lights of tho steamer, without it over
once occurring to him to call for help.
Ho nover had called for help in his life,
and so It Is not strange that ho did not
think of it now. Always had ho de
pended upon his own prowess and re
sourcefulness, nor had there ever been,
since tho days ot Kala, any to answer
nn appeal for succor. When It did oc
cur to him it wns too late
There was, thought Tarzan, a possible
ono chance in a hundred thousand that
ho might be picked up, and an even
smaller chance that he would reach land,
bo ho determined thnt to combine what
slight chances there were, ho would ewlm
slowly In the direction of tho coast the
ship might have been closer in than ho
Ills strokes wero long and easy It
would be many houts before those giant
muscles would commence to feel fatigue.
As ho Bwatn, guided toward tho east by
the stars, he noticed that ho felt the
Weight of his shoes, and so he removed
them. Ills trousers went next, and h
would have removed his coat at tho samo
time but for tho precious papers in its
pocket. To reassuro himself that ho still
had them, he slipped his hand in to feel,
but, to his constornatlon, thoy wero gone.
Now he know that something more than
revenge had prompted Rokoff to pitch
him overboard tho Russian had managed
to obtain possession of tho papors Tarzan
had wrestled from him at Bou Snada.
The ape-man eworo softly, nnd lot his
coat and shirt sink into tho Atlantic.
Beforo mnny hours ho had divested him
self ot his remaining garments, and was
swimming easily and unencumbered to
ward tho east.
Tho first faint ovldonco of dawn waa
paling tho stars ahead of him, when tho
dim outlines of a low-lying black mass
loomed up directly In (his track. A few
strong strokes brought him to Its side
It was tho bottom of a wave-washed
derelict. Tarzan clambered upon It ho
would rest there until dnyllght at least.
Ho had no lntontlon tr remain there in
active a prey to hunger and thirst. If
ho must die ho preferred dying in action
making somo semblance of an attempt
to save himself. '
Thp sea was quiet, so that tho wreck
had only a gently undulating motion
that was soothing to the swimmer who
had had no sleep for 20 hours. Tarzan
of the Apes curled up upon the slimy
timbers and was soon asleep.
The heat of tho sun nwoko-hlm early
in tha forenoon. His first conscious sen
sation wns of thirst, which grew almost
to tho proportions of suffering with full
returning consciousness; but a moment
later it wns forgotten In tho Joy of two
almost simultaneous discoveries The
first was a mass of wreckage floating
beside the derelict in the midst of which,
bottom up, rose nnd fell nn overturned
lifeboat; the other was the faint, dim
lino of a far-distant shore showing on
the horizon in the east.
Tarzan dove Into the water and swam
around tho wreck to the lifeboat. The
cool ocean refreshed him almost as much
as would a draft of water, so that It
was with renewed vigor that he brought
the smaller boat alongside the derelict.
nnd. nfter mnny herculean efforts, suc
ceeded In dragging It onto the slimy
ship's bottom. There he righted and ex
amined it the boat was quite sound, and
a moment later floated upright alongside
the wreck. Then Tarzan selected several
pieces of wreckago that might answer
him as paddles, and presently was mak
ing good headway toward the far-off
It was late In tho afternoon by the
time he carte close enough to distinguish
objects on land, or to make out the con
tour of the shore line, Before him lay
what appeared to be the entrance to a
little, land-locked harbor. The wooded
point to the north waa strangely fa
miliar Could it be possible that fate had
thrown him up at the very threshold of
his own beloved Jungle! But as the bow
of his boat entered the mouth of the
harbor tho last shred of doubt was
cleared away, for there before him upon
the farther shore, under the shadows of
his primeval forest, stood his own cabin
built before his. birth by the hand of
ms tong-aeaa tamer, jonn Ulnyton, L.ord
With long sweeps of his giant muscles
Tarzan sent the little craft speeding to
ward the beach. Its prow had scarcely
touched when the ape-man leaped to
shore his heart beat fast in Joy and ex
ultation as each long-familiar object
came beneath his roving eyes the cabin,
the beach, the little brook, the dense
Jungle, the black. Impenetrable forest.
The myriad birds In their brilliant
plumage the gorgeous tropical blooms
upon tho festooned creepers falling In
great loops from the giant trees.
Tarzan of the Apes had cqme Into his
own again, nnd that nil the world might
know it ho threw back his young head
and gave voice to the fierce, wild chal
lenge of his tribe. For a moment silence
rejgned, upon the Jungle, and then, low
nnd weird, came an answering challenge
It was tho deep roar of Numn, the Hon;
nnd from a great distance, faintly, the
fearsome answering bellow of a bull ape.
Tarzan went to the brook first, and
slaked his thirst. Then he approached
his cabin The door was still closed and
latched as he and D'Arnot had left It.
He raised the latch and entered Nothing
ha4 been disturbed; there were the table.

father - tha shelves and cupboards Just

as they had stood for over 23 years Just
as ha had left Hum nearly tVo years
His1 syea satisfied, Tarzan's stomach
bgan to call aloud for attention tho
pangs of hunger suggested a search for
food. There was nothing in tho cabin,
nor hhd ho nhy weapons! but upon a
wall hung one ot his old grass ropes. It
had been many times broken and spliced,
so that he had discarded It for n better
ono long before Tar2an wished that he
had a knlfo. Well, unless he was mis
taken, ha should have that nnd a. epear
and bows and arrows before another sun
had set the ropo would take caro of
that, and In the meantime It must bo
maao to procuro food for him Ho colled
It carefully, and, throwing It about his
shoulder, went out, closing tho door bo
Close to the cabin tho Jungle com
menced, and into It Tarzan of tho Apes
plunged, wary and noiseless onoo mora
a savage beast hunting Its food. For a
time ho kept to the ground, but, finally,
discovering no spoor Indicative of near
by meat, ho took to tho tres. With tho
first dizzy swing from tree to treei oil tho
old Joy of living swept over him. Vain
regrets and dull heartache wero 'forgot
ten. Now was he living. Now, Indeed,
was tho true happiness of perfect free
dom his. Who would go back to tho
stifling, wicked cities of civilized man
when tho mlchty reaches of tho great
Jungle, offered poaco and Uberty7 Not ho.
While It was yet Sight Tarzan camo to
a drinking place by tho sldo of a Jungle,
river. Thoro wns a ford there, and for
countless ages tho beasts of tho forest
had como down to drink at this spot.
Hero of a night might always bo found
either Sabor or Numa, crouching in tho
dense fouogo of tho surrounding Jungle,
awattng an antelopo or a water buck
for their meal. Iloro came Hortn, tho
boar, to water, and hero camo Tarzan of
tho Apes to mako n kill, for ho was very
On a low branch ho squatted abovo tho
trail. For an hour ho waited. It was
growing dark, A llttlo to ono sldo of
tho ford In tho densest thicket ho heard
tho faint sound of padded feet, nnd the
brushing of a huge body' ngalnst tall
grasses and tangled creepers. No no other
than Tarzan might have heard it, but
the ape-man heard and translated It
was Numa, tho Hon, on tho samo crrnnd
as himself. Tarzan smiled
Presently ho heard nn nntmal approach
ing warily nlong the trail toward tho
drinking place. A moment more nnd it
came In view It was Horta, tho boar.
Here was delicious meat and Tarzan's
mouth watered Tho grasses whero
Numn lay wero very still now ominous
ly still. Horta passed beneath Tarzan
a few moro stops and he would be within
he radius or Numa's spring. Tarzan
could imnglno how old Numa's eyes wero
shining how he was nlrcady sucking In
his brath for the awful roar which would
freeze his prey for tho brief Instant be
tween tho moment of the spring nnd tl
sinking of terrible fangs Into splintering
But as Numa gathered himself, a
slender rope flow through tho nlr from
tho low branches of a nearby tree A
nooso nettled about Horta's nock. Thero
wns a frightened grunt, a squeal, and
then Numa saw his quarry dragged back
ward up the trail, and, as ho sprang,
Hortn, thp boar, soared upward beyond
his clutches Into tho treo above, and a
mocking face looked down and laughed
Into his own
Then Indeed did Numa roar. Angry,
threatening, hungry, ho ptced back and
forth beneath the taunting" npe-man.
Now he stopped, and, rising on his hind
legs ngalnst the stem of tho tree that
held his enemy, sharpened his hugo claws
upon the bark, tearing out great pieces
that laid bare tho whlto wood beneath.
And In tho meantime Tarzan had drag
ged tho struggling Hlorta to tho limb be
side him, Sinewy fingers completed tho
work tho choking nooso had commenced
Tho npe-man had no knife, but nature
had equlppcrj him with tho means of
tearing his food from the quivering flank
of his prcv, and gleaming teeth sank Into
tho succulent flesh while the raging Hon
looked on from bolow as another enjoyed
the dinner that ho had thought already
It was dark by tho time Tarzan had
gorged himself Ah, but It had been de
licious! Never had he quite accustomed
himself to the ruined flesh that civilized
men had served him, and In tho bottom
of his savage heart thero had constantly
been tho craving for the warm meat of
the fresh kill, and tho rich, red blood.
He wiped his bloody hands upon a
bunch of leaves, slung the remains of
his kill across his shoulder, and swung
off through the mlddjo terrace of the
forest toward his cabin, "and nt the same
Instant Jane Porter and William Cecil
Clayton nroso from a sumptuous dinner
upon tho Lady Alice, thousands of miles
to the east, In the Indian Ocean.
Beneath Tarzan walked Numa, the
lion, nnd when the ape-man deigned to
glance downward he caught occasional
glimpses of tho baleful green eyes follow
ing through the darkness Numa did not
roar now Instead, he moved stealthily,
like the shadow of a great cat; but yet
he took no step that did not reach the
sensitive ears of the ape-man.
Tarzan wondered if he would stalk
him to his cabin door He hoped not,
for that vpuld mean a night's sleep
curled in the crotch of a tree, and he
much preferred the bed of grasses within
his own abode But he knew Just the
tree nnd the most comfortable crotch.
It necessity demanded that he sleep out.
A hundred times In the past some great
Jungle cat had followed htm home, and
compelled him to seek shelter In this
samo tree, until another mood or the
rising sun had sent his enemy away.
But presently Numa gave up the chase
and, with a series of blood-curdling moans
and roars turned angrily back Jn search
of another and an easier dinner So Tar
zan camo to his cabin unattended, and a
few moments later was curled up in the
mildewed remnants of what had oncn
boot) a bed of grasses Thus easily did

of the wild beast that has fed to reple
tion Tet ft woman's "yes" would have
bound him to, that other Ufa forever, and
made tho thought of this savage existence)
Tarzan slept lato Into tho following
forenoon, for he had been very tired from
tho labors and exertion ot the long night
nnd day upon the ocean, and the Jungle
Jaunt that had brought Into piny muscles
that ho hid scarce used for nearly two
years When he awoke ho ran to tha
brook first to drink Then ho took n
plunge Into tho sea, swimming about for
n quarter of ftn hour Afterward he re
turned to his cabin, and breakfasted oft
the flesh of Horta. This done, he burled
tho balance of the carcass In tha soft
earth outside tho cabin for his evening
Onco more he took his ropo and van-
isnoa into tne jungle. This time he hunted
nobler quarry man; although had you
asked him his own opinion he could have
named a dozen other denizens of the
Jungle which he considered far tho su
periors in nobility of tho men he hunted.
Today Tarzan was In quest of weapons.
He wondered if the women and children
had remained in Mbonga'A village after
the punitive expedition from the French
cruiser had massacred all the warriors in
revenge for D'Arnot's supposed death. Ho
hoped that he should find wnrrlors there,
for he knew not how long a quest ho
should havo to mako were the village
Tho ape-man traveled swiftly through
tho forest, and about noon camo to tho
site of tho village, but to his disappoint
ment found that tho Jungle, had overgrown
the plantain fields and that tho thatched
huts had fallen In decay. There wns no
sign of man. Ho clambered about among
ine ruins ior nair nn nour, hoping that
ho might discover somo forgotten weapon,
but his search was without fruit, and so
ho took up his quest bnco more, following
uy mu niiraiu, wnicn uowca from a
southeasterly direction. Ho knew that
near fresh water he would bo most like
ly to find another settlement.
As ho traveled ho hunted ns he had
nuniea wun ins npo people In tho past,
aa Kala had taught him to hunt, turning
over rotted logs to find somo toothsome
vermin, running high Into tho trees to rob
a bird's nest, or pouncing upon a tiny
rodent with tho quickness of a cat. Thero

of his llfo.
Occasionally ho smiled as ho recalled

club Just as Tarzan had Bat but a few
months beforo; nnd then ho would otnn.

the gentlo breeze carried to his trained
nostrils tho scent of somo new proy or

That night ho slept far Inland from
his cabin, securely wedged into tho
crotch of a giant tree, swaying n hun-
urou icoi bdovo me ground. Ho had
eaten heartily again this tlmo from the
flesh of Bara, tho deer, who had fallen
proy to his quick nooso.
Early tho next morning he resumed his
Journey, always following the course of
the stream. For three days ho continued
his quest, until he had como to a part
of the Jungle In which ho never before
had been. Occasionally upon the higher
ground the forest was much thinner, and
in the far distance through tho trees he
could seo ranges of mighty mountains,
with wldo plains In tho foreground. Here,
In the open spaces, were new game
