              The long boat of the Marjorie W. was floating down the broad Ugambi with ebb tide andcurrent. Her crew were lazily enjoying this respite from the arduous labor of rowing upstream. Three miles below them lay the Marjorie W. herself, quite ready to sail so soon asthey should have c...lambered aboard and swung the long boat to its davits. Presently theattention of every man was drawn from his dreaming or his gossiping to the northern bankof the river. There, screaming at them in a cracked falsetto and with skinny armsoutstretched, stood a strange apparition of a man. Wot the 'ell? ejaculated one of the crew. A white man! muttered the mate, and then: Man the oars, boys, and we'll just pullover an' see what he wants. When they came close to the shore they saw an emaciated creature with scant whitelocks tangled and matted. The thin, bent body was naked but for a loin cloth. Tears wererolling down the sunken pock-marked cheeks. The man jabbered at them in a strangetongue. Rooshun, hazarded the mate. Savvy English? he called to the man.He did, and in that tongue, brokenly and haltingly, as though it had been many yearssince he had used it, he begged them to take him with them away from this awful country.Once on board the Marjorie W. the stranger told his rescuers a pitiful tale of privation, hardships, and torture, extending over a period of ten years. How he happened to havecome to Africa he did not tell them, leaving them to assume he had forgotten the incidentsof his life prior to the frightful ordeals that had wrecked him mentally and physically. Hedid not even tell them his true name, and so they knew him only as Michael Sabrov, nor wasthere any resemblance between this sorry wreck and the virile, though unprincipled, AlexisPaulvitch of old

              Upon a massive bench of polished ersite beneath the gorgeous blooms of a giant pimalia a woman sat. Her shapely, sandalled foot tapped impatiently upon the jewel-strewn walk that wound beneath the stately sorapus trees across the scarlet sward of the royal gardens of Thuvan Dihn,... Jeddak of Ptarth, as a dark-haired, red-skinned warrior bent low toward her, whispering heated words close to her ear. Ah, Thuvia of Ptarth, he cried, you are cold even before the fiery blasts of my consuming love! No harder than your heart, nor colder is the hard, cold ersite of this thrice happy bench which supports your divine and fadeless form! Tell me, O Thuvia of Ptarth, that I may still hope - that though you do not love me now, yet some day, some day, my princess, I - The girl sprang to her feet with an exclamation of surprise and displeasure. Her queenly head was poised haughtily upon her smooth red shoulders. Her dark eyes looked angrily into those of the man.

              As Tarzan struck the water, his first impulse was to swim clear of the ship and possible danger from her propellers. He knew whom to thank for his present predicament, and as he lay in the sea, just supporting himself by a gentle movement of his hands, his chief emotion was one o...f chagrin that he had been so easily bested by Rokoff. He lay thus for some time, watching the receding and rapidly diminishing lights of the steamer without it ever once occurring to him to call for help. He never had called for help in his life, and so it is not strange that he did not think of it now. Always had he depended upon his own prowess and resourcefulness, nor had there ever been since the days of Kala any to answer an appeal for succor. When it did occur to him it was too late.

              As he dropped the last grisly fragment of the dismembered and mutilated body into the small vat of nitric acid that was to devour every trace of the horrid evidence which might easily send him to the gallows, the man sank weakly into a chair and throwing his body forward upon his... great, teak desk buried his face in his arms, breaking into dry, moaning sobs.
