IN ENEMY HANDS ~ 34.07.01
the mysterious maiden rushed into Tarzan's protecting arms two men pursued
her -- one a fierce Malay, the other a villainous Arab. The Malay snarled
and raised his pistol. As Tarzan whirled to protect the girl with his own
body the Arab cried, " Do not fire, fool! She is precious merchandise and
must bear no blemish. We must take them both alive!" He called into the
forest. A strange horde surged forth -- Arabs, savage Sudanese, Lascars,
snarling Malays, Chinese -- as evil a crew of renegades as was ever assembled
from the backwash of Asia and the Barbary Coast.
Grasping the maiden, Tarzan sprang to an overhanging bough
hoping to bear her to safety in the jungle. But hardly had he started his
aerial escape when a branch snapped, and Tarzan fell with his precious
burden into the hands of the enemy. The fugitives were seized and led to
the ship in the hidden cove. There the Arab addressed the maiden: "You
shall not leave our hands again until the highest bidder claims you in
the slave market of Harakeesh! Then he pointed to Tarzan and commanded:
"Chain him to an oar so that he may help speed this maiden to her fate!"
