THE SINKING SHIP ~ 34.07.22
the superstitious sailors hurled the maiden into the sea believing that
she had brought the storm upon them Tarzan struggled free from his captors
and dived into the raging waters to save her. She was nearly within his
grasp when a surging wave cast her away again. But at last he reached her
side, gripped her firmly, and began the perilous return to the ship, where
he knew not what fate awaited them. There the Arab captain ordered them
hauled aboard by the windlass.
On deck, Tarzan stood ready to protect the girl, but he
found that those who had menaced her were now in irons. The ape-man demanded
that he be freed from his slavery as a reward for rescuing the maiden.
But the slave merchant feared Tarzan's miraculous strength and daring,
and ordered him chained again to the oar. Then the tempest broke in all
its fury. Towering waves washed over the deck. and many of the evil crew
were flung into the sea. A fiery bold of lightning struck the vessel and
split her side, so that she began to sink? And leaping flames, started
by the lightning, spread over the foundering ship!
