READING #6
     Tarzan had 1 scarce a dozen steps toward the jungle when a great form rose up before him from the shadows of a low bush. At 2 he thought it was one of his own people but in another instant he realized that it was a huge gorilla. So close was he that there was no 3 for flight and little Tarzan knew that he must stand and fight for his life; for these great beasts were the deadly 4 of his tribe, and neither one nor the other ever asked or gave quarter. Had Tarzan been a full-grown bull ape of the species of his tribe he would have 5 more than a match for the gorilla, but being only a little English boy, though enormously muscular for such, he stood no chance against his cruel antagonist. In his veins, though, flowed the 6 of the best of a race of mighty fighters, and back of this was the training of his short lifetime 7 the fierce brutes of the jungle. He knew no fear, as we know it; his little heart beat the faster but from the excitement and exhilaration of adventure. Had the opportunity presented itself he would have escaped, but solely 8 his judgment told him he was no match for the great thing which confronted him. And since reason 9 him that successful flight was 10 , he met the gorilla squarely and bravely without a tremor of a single muscle, or any sign of panic.
