A CRY FOR HELP ~ 34.07.08

Tarzan was startled when the mysterious maiden begged of her captives. "You know my royal lineage. If I am sold into slavery I shall surely die. The Arab laughed cruelly, and the maiden turned an imploring glance on Tarzan as her only friend. The Ape-man determined to aid her if fate allowed. But the Arab ordered him chained to an oar in the row of galley slaves. soon the master of the slaves swung his lash and roused the oarsmen to their bitter labors, for now wind blew to fill the sails. So the strange ship left the hidden cove and shaped her course toward the east. On the first day, an agile Lascar fell from a mast -- though the sea was glassy calm! On the second day, the rudder shifted oddly and the Chinese helmsman was flung into the sea!

The crew grew fearful and whispered among themselves: "There are demons aboard. How do we know what accident may befall us tomorrow?"

One said: "All was well before the maiden came on board."

Another answered: "All will be well again -- if we are rid of her!" Convinced that an evil spirit was in her, they ran to seize her and hurl her into the sea. The maiden cried out in terror. And Tarzan, hearing her cry, strained  at his chains but they would not yield, even to his mighty strength!
