Synopsis for Captain Jim of the Texas Rangers: "Jane and Johnny, Part 12 (of 27)"

The deputy locked in the jail cell is eventually discovered and freed, and he rallies up a posse, to go after the missing kids!

Out in the hills, the rustlers are wondering who has found their hide-out. They fan out, draw iron, and move in on his probable position, the ledge above their shack. Spike picks an ambush spot right next to a bolder, on the other side of which Jane and Johnny had been hiding. Johnny spoils Spike's shot by whacking his pistol with a stick, but Spike charges right in on Captain Jim and grapples with him. The other outlaws take this opportunity to whack Jim on the head with a pistol butt, then tie him up and gag him. Johnny and Jane see this, and start to run for help. Their path takes them toward Rusty's new lookout spot, and Rusty sees them before they see him.

Rajah Maharajah is enraged by the news of Sandor's escape! He knows, however that Sandor will certainly return for his dog, so Maharajah orders Elaka to be confined in a secret dungeon. In the next room, a spy (Jadev) overhears this, and scurries off to the Temple of the Jungle Goddess to report it to his master, the High Priest. Not knowing how to contact Sandor, the Priest dispatches Jadev to the cave of Benar, the Fakir, with a message about Elaka, to relay to Sandor. After Benar and Sandor have parted ways with Awla, their getaway elephant, they return to Benar's cave, where they get the message from Jadev: Tonight is the Feast of the Jungle Goddess, and Rajah Maharajah will be at her Temple. Sandor then returns to the palace, throttles another guard unconscious, and sneaks inside. As he sprints up a stairway to an upper gallery, he is watched from a shadowy doorway under the stairway by a turban-wearing figure.

Trivia

  • A character named Jor-L appears in the "Federal Men" story. However, he is a Federal Man from the year 3000, and should not be confused with Superman's father. Also, he only appears in a hypothetical story, told by Professor Grant of the FBI, thus from their perspective does not really exist.

  • Boody Rogers signed his Rattlesnake Pete strip as "R. Donrog".
  • Babe Mather signed his Maginnis of the Mounties story as "Babe Mather".
