INTO THE RAGING SEA ~ 34.07.15
Tarzan tried vainly to break his chains, the master of the galley-slaves
laid the lash strongly on his back. Again the maiden's cry reached the
ape-man's ears as the sailors rushed to throw her overboard. In the belief
that she harbored an evil spirit. Then the Arab slave merchant seeking
to protect his precious merchandise, fired into the assailants. One fell;
the others slunk away. Later Tarzan was brought on deck to rest, for the
slave dealer desired to preserve the strength of his mightiest oarsman.
Then came the roll of distant thunder. The sky grew dark. Lightning flashed.
The sailors looked aloft and were afraid.
An elder among them spoke: "It is such a storm as I have
never seen. Yonder clouds are the chariots of death!" Violent gusts of
wind, heralds of the coming gale, struck the ship and heeled her over and
waves ran high. The sailors were determined now to appease the wrath of
the storm by hurling the maiden into the sea as a sacrifice! When they
rushed upon her, the Arab captain fired upon them again, but they would
not halt. Then mighty Tarzan battled the fanatic mob to save her but he
was overpowered by force of numbers. Pleading for mercy, the hapless maiden
was seized, and flung into the raging waters!
