A QUEEN IN PERIL ~ 1933.11.12
Fearing 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!
