Synopsis for Captain Jim of the Texas Rangers: "The Train Robbery, Part 17"
Rusty and the outlaws ride until they come to a high point from which to survey their back trail. From there they spot Bob riding toward them, and Rusty rides down to a good spot from which to bushwhack him. Bob gets lassoed and tied up, blindfolded, propped on his own horse, and soon is riding along with the gang. They ride to the basin where the stolen cattle are hidden, and Rusty opens a small sheet iron door in the canyon wall. A small storage space is there, into which they toss Bob.
Meanwhile farther back on the trail, Captain Jim, Jane, and Johnny are anxiously searching for Bob. This leads them to the trail of the outlaw gang. Captain Jim finds an envelope laying on the ground, but before he can open it, Johnny calls his attention to an approaching wildfire. The three of them gallop away from it.

Late one evening Sir Thomas Ellsworth telephones his old friend Nadir to ask him for help with an unsolved crime. Nadir walks to Ellsworth's apartment building, and just before he enters, an unseen figure throws a knife, which dags itself into the elevator door at which he was waiting. Nadir dashes after him, but the thrower escapes. Nadir recovers the knife, for examination.
Upstairs, Nadir confers with Ellsworth. The "Pearl of the Bleeding Heart" has been stolen, from Ellsworth. There's one suspect: Henri Duprez, the only other man who knew of the Pearl's existence. Nadir promises Sir Thomas some quick results, then repairs to his penthouse apartment, and his private laboratory. Within was a combination of modern scientific equipment and ancient Oriental rarities of black magic. Examining the thrown knife, he finds no fingerprints, so he resorts to the teachings of his forefathers and immerses the knife in a murky liquid. Ten minutes later most of the liquid has dissolved away. Nadir removes a large ring from the second finger of his left hand. Soon he will know the location of the would-be murderer!

Synopsis for Steve Conrad Adventurer: "The Revenge of Devachan, Part 5"
Steve twists out of the Vulture's grip, and drops into the jungle below. He catches some vines and slows his fall, but as soon as he reaches the ground the vulture attacks again, and this vulture is the size of a man. Steve throttles the vulture, wrenches it around, and snaps its neck.
But now Myra is missing, and Steve's new monkey friend is still around; it leads him thru the brush to a spot within sight of the Amazon village, then disappears. Steve rushes to the village, fearing Myra will be killed by the Amazons, but in the village, they actually are mistaking her for a goddess and declaring her to be their new ruler. Also Myra has changed into a silky harem outfit. Steve is watching from the stockade wall surrounding the village. The monkey returns, with one claw torn off from the giant vulture, then flings it into the throng of Amazons around Myra. They shriek and flee at the sight of the leg of the Sacred Vulture. From a tree high above them, in a booming voice, Steve commands the Amazons to worship their new goddess Myra. But now emerging, in the doorway of Tangi's hut, is the sinister Devachan.
