"Stop!" shrieked Om-nt, springing

"Enough I" ho snapped. "Let us be
true to our oaths of friendship that we

"You arc right, Tailless One," said
Ta-den. "Come, Om-nt, let us look

"Done!" ngreed Om-at, "but "
'No 'buts,' Om-at," admonished
Tarzan.
Tho shaggy black shrugged his shoul
ders and smiled. "Shall we make our
way down toward the vnllcy?" he
asked. "The gorge below us is unin
habited; that to the left contains the
caves of my people. I would sec Pan-at-Ice

proceed?"
Let us rcmnin together as long as
possible," urged Ta-den. "You. Om-nt,
must seek Pnn-nt-lee by night nnd by
stealth, for three, even we three, may
not hope to overcome Es-sat and all his
w-arrlors. At any time may we go to

close to tho cars of his companions
in-ucn, uie xnii-trcc. t-on of .Tn-don,
the Lion-man, unfolded his daring plan.
And nt the same moment, n lmnrlreil
miles away, a lithe figure, naked but
ior a loin cloth nnd weapons, moved
silently ncross a thorn-covered, wntcr-
lcss steppe, searching nlwnys along" tho
ground before him with keen eyes and
sensitive nostras.
CHAPTER III
Pan -nt-Leo
Mght had fnllen upon uncharted
Pnl-ul-don. A slender moon, low in
the West, bathed the white faces of the
chalk cliffs presented to her, in n mel
low, unearthly glow. Black were the
shadows in Kor-ul-jn. Gortro-of-llons.
where dwelt the tribe of the same namo
under Es-sat, their chief. From un
aperture near the summit of the lofty
escarpment a hairy figure emerged the
head and shoulders first nnd fierce
eyes scanned the cliff side in every di
rection.
It was Es-sat, the chief. To right
and left nnd below he looked ns though
to assure himself that he was unob
served, but no other figure moved upon
the cliff face, nor did nnothcr hairy
body protrude from nny of the numerous
envc mouths from the high-flung nbodc
of the chief to the habitations of the
more lowly members of the tribe nearer
the cliff's base. Then he moved out
ward upon the sheer face of tho white
chalk wall. In the hnlf-llght of the
baby moon it appeared that the heavy,
shaggy black figure moved across the
face of the perpendicular wall in some
miraculous mnnner, but closer ex
amination would hnvc revealed stout
pegs, as large around ns a man's wrist,
nrotrudlne from holes in the cliff into
which they were driven. Es-t-at's four
liandliko members and his long, sinuous
tail permitted him to move with con
summate ease whither he chose a
Bicantic tat upon n mighty wnll. As he
progressed upon his way he avoided the
cavci mouths, passing cither nuove or
below those that lay in his path.
The outward niiprnrancc of these
caves was blmilur. An opening from
eight to ns much ns twenty feet long
b elcht hich and four to six feet deep
was cut into thu clmlklike rock of the
HIT. In the back of this Inrco opening.
which formed what might be described
ns the front vernndu of the home, was
nn nneninir about three feet wide and
six feet high, evidently forming the
doorway to tho interior apartment or
nnartmeutH. On cither side of this
doorway were smaller openings which
it were ensv to nHSiime were windows
through whiih light and air might find
ihi.ii- u-nv to the inhabitants. Similar
windows were also dotted over tho cliff
fncu between the cntrnnce porches, sug
gesting that the entire tnee of tho cliff
was honeycombed with np.ii tinents.
From many of the fee xumller apertures
uninil Mtreiiiii.s of water trickled down
the cbcarnmeut. and tho walls above
others was blackened as by smoke.
Where the water ran tho wull wns
eroded to u dcptli of from a few Inches
to ns much as n foot, suggesting that
some of the tiny streams had been
trickling downward to the green carpet
of vegetation below for ages.
