Synopsis for Captain Jim of the Texas Rangers: "Jane and Johnny, Part 18 (of 27)"

The rustlers spot the oncoming wildfire, open the corral, and ride with the stolen herd, away from the fire. In the rustlers' underground storage space, Bob tugs his hands free from the ropes, but he's still stuck in the one-door cubby. He smells the smoke and grows concerned, then searches around until he finds a small flat box of dynamite caps. Bob has some matches with him and is able to effect an explosive escape.

Meanwhile Captain Jim, Jane, and Johnny are racing away from the forest fire, over the same ridge that the rustlers crossed earlier, but before they can get to the creek, there's a rock slide, and the trail is blocked.

Synopsis for "Golden Dragon, Episode 13 (of 31)"

Ian Murray, Doris Whipple, and Pan Chi Lou have been kidnapped by a gang of Mongol raiders. The camel-ride back to their village is long and unpleasant, then the trio are thrust into a jail hut. Pan Chi-Lou advises that they need to escape that night, because the Mongols are waiting for Torgadoff's return, which will be in the morning. Doris spends a long time chewing thru the ropes on Nelson's wrists, until he is free. Ian still has his pistol, and the guard has fallen asleep. Ian head-konks him unconscious and ties him up. The other remaining sentry, near the cooking fire, is doing a better job of staying awake, but just barely. Ian hands his pistol to Pan, takes up the tied guard's rifle, and creeps up on the remaining watchman.

Synopsis for Steve Conrad Adventurer: "The Revenge of Devachan, Part 6 (of 11)

The cruel Devachan steps out and declares Myra to be a fake. Myra scampers into the jungle to look for Steve, but he's already there. He steps up and confronts Devachan. They grapple, and the Amazons watch. That's how they don't notice as a raiding squad of Apollons, from the nearby island of Hercuma, beaches their canoes and races inland, looking to capture some new wives. They arrive at the Amazon village right around the time that Conrad is finishing off Devachan in a knock-out. They congratulate him on his victory then announce that he must now fight each of them, one after another. Why? Because they are here to win wives by combat, and have noticed that Myra is the fairest of all the girls in the village. They will fight with clubs while clinging to stout vines, high above the ground. Steve defeats his first foe.

Synopsis for Nadir, Master of Magic: "Pearl of the Bleeding Heart, Part 2 (of 11)"

In his penthouse laboratory in New York City, Nadir pulls a large ring off the second finger of his left hand and pries open the setting, revealing a compartment within it. He fills this cell with the liquid in which he has immersed the knife, from the evening's earlier murder attempt, then reassembles the ring and puts it in a box, beneath a large spherical crystal. He waits until 3:00 am, snoozing in an easy chair, then snaps awake, darkens the room, and examines the crystal. At first there is only a red haze, which then takes shape to reveal a man examining a beautiful pearl. From the monogram on the man's robe, Nadir confirms that this is Henri Duprez. Nadir slips his ring back onto his finger; this ring has passed thru many generations of him family, and is the key to Nadir's uncanny power. He gets into his big black sedan and starts driving in the city; whenever he moves in a wrong direction, his ring gives his finger a painful squeeze; soon he is correctly moving south on 7th Avenue, crossing 42nd Street. Thus the ring guides him to an old brownstone house on 23rd street. He parks, and uses a skeleton key to break into the darkened house. He enters Duprez's bedroom and finds him sleeping peacefully, then Nadir's gleaming eyes seem to bore a message directly into Duprez's sleeping brain. Duprez sits up, in a trance, and Nadir accuses him of stealing the Pearl of the Bleeding Heart. As Duprez is confessing, another door opens, and Duprez's giant servant steps silently into the room.
