THE FLOATING MENAGERIE ~ 34.09.09
Tarzan spurred the horse forward to elude the Sultan's soldiers, he found
himself plunging over a hidden precipice, into the sea. "Cling fast to
me!" he cried to Princess Mihrama.
Then he leaped free of the horse and turned downward in
a dive, while the maiden held tightly to him. They dropped safely into
the sea, but when Tarzan sought some refuge on the land, he saw he could
not climb the sheer rock. They swam around the cliff, but the broad beach
was filling with soldiers and a hostile mob. In desperation Tarzan turned
toward the open sea.. Approaching the land was a strange vessel. The captain
called to them, offering a haven on board. Soon they were aboard, and when
Tarzan inquired what manner of ship this was, the captain replied: "We
trade in jungle animals for those lands where they are seldom seen."
Princess Mihrama was overjoyed when she learned that the
first port of call was to be Talarsan, capital city of her father's kingdom.
But she had a foreboding of danger when the captain took her to the hold
and proudly exhibited the cages of growling beasts. An hour later, when
the vessel was sailing near an island, a sudden wind drove it on the rocky
shore. The ship shivered -- and cracked! The crash twisted the timbers
of the cages. The doors sprang open -- and the beasts were free to wreak
jungle vengeance on their captors! The ship resounded with frenzied roars,
and the beasts quickly found their way to the deck, where Tarzan stepped
forth to face their raging onslaught!
