A QUEEN IN PERIL ~ 1933.11.12
reprisals for the imprisonment of Queen Nikotris, the Ibeks sent mounted
scouts to watch for the Egyptians. The queen, meanwhile, in her prison
tent was subjected to the insults of the fierce tribes women. As one of
them brandished a knife in her face Nikotris shrieked for Tarzan's aid.
The ape-man hearing her voice, did not hesitate. Cutting
his way through the prison-tent he hurtled past the guard outside, dashed
up the side of the tent, and dropped down through the opening in the top.
"Who dares disturb the peace of Prince Kamur's bride?"
Tarzan demanded as the guards surged into the tent. The Ibeks, overawed,
fell back as the ape-man shouted, "Make way for the Queen Nikotris!"
Some of the scouts were returning just as Tarzan led
the queen out of the tent. One of them dismounted and the ape-man saw his
chance. Seizing Nikotris, he leaped upon the horse's back. He was off before
the Ibeks realized what had happened. The horsemen were swift in pursuit!
