Synopsis for "Fang Gow of China: Part 35"Edit

While attempting to rescue Jean Le Grand, Barry O'Neill has fallen into the clutches of Fang Gow, who is giving him the "Water Cure" - Drops slowly fall on his forehead, which will eventually cause insanity, then death. Meanwhile, a government launch silently glides under the pier, the french naval officials aboard prepare to charge into Fang Gow's headquarters. They are greeted by his men who try to fight against the small group, but the sailors drive them back, fueled by the memory of the slaughter of their comrades by these same bandits.

A guard enters the torture room to tell Fang Gow of the french's attack. Fang Gow quickly calls for the executioner to end Barry's life before the officers arrive, but just as the large, hooded man is about to bring his saber down on Barry's head, the sailors burst through the door and fire a shot right into the executioner's backside, dropping him to the ground, dead! Fang Gow tries to escape to the waterway, but a bullet finds it's mark in his back and knocks him into the canal to be swept away by the current! Though a search is launched, no body is recovered... After Barry is safely rescued, the french gunboats blast away at the hideout until it is nothing but rubble. Barry is taken aboard the government launch that heads back to the gunboat, where he is reunited with the inspector and Jean Le Grand, who was saved from the heat of the desert by a kind trader who escorted her back to the city. The gunboat sets out to return the group to Paris.

Elsewhere in Port Said, a shadowy bunch of surgeons are working swiftly to keep alive a bent, mutilated body...

Synopsis for Cotton Carver: "The White Witch"Edit

On the edge of the great abyss, Volor the dwarf leads Cotton down into the bowels of the earth. They come to step upon a land of death where the lakes are all dried out, and the trees bear no leaves: the land of the Witch Queen, Kothe. Volor turns behind them as his face turns pale in fear as the native tribe, known as the Reed Men, because of their grassy green skin, rushed towards them with spears and clubs raised. Though Cotton and Volor try to fight them off, the numbers are too great and they are overwhelmed and taken to the Reed Men's lair, where the dark Queen Kothe resides. With all her beauty, it was hard for Cotton to believe that she was truly a witch. She sentences the two intruders to be locked in the deepest dungeon.

Luck was with Cotton for though they took away Volor's axe, the natives passed up his side-arm, not realizing its purpose as a weapon. When night fell, he shot off the cell door's lock and, with Volor trailing behind, snuck up to Kothe's private chamber where handmaidens were busy servicing her every whim. Using swords they stole from the armory, Cotton and Volor both keep the servants at bay while the queen is pulled from her bed and held at the blade. Guards were quick to pursue them as Cotton carried Queen Kothe in his arms while dashing down the steps into the courtyard. A lone tower loomed invitingly to the fugitives, who headed in its direction. Kothe shrieked for them to stop when she saw where they were going. The Temple of the Heartstone, where deadly peril lay in wait for all who dare enter!

Synopsis for Federal Men: "Wrong Side of the Law: Part 6"Edit

Steve Carson regains his full memory after coming into contact with his old friend, Ralph Ventor, in the alley where Red had tried to set them up against each other only to be fatally shot down. And now that he remembered everything, Steve told Ralph that he helped the Phantom Gang plan their next heist while he had amnesia, and now he had a plan to catch them. He would return to the hideout as Dan Steele and collect enough evidence for the F.B.I. to nab them.

However, back at the hideout, one of the gangsters has seen a picture of Dan Steele in an old magazine. The article was titled "How G-Men Work", and below the picture was a caption that identified their boss as Steve Carson, Federal Agent. They hadn't known about his amnesia, so the men automatically assumed they were being set-up the entire time! The three came up with their own plan... Carson must be taken care of immediately. As soon as "Dan Steele" came through the door, they held him at gunpoint and forced him outside into their car. Steve couldn't think of what to do now that his cover had been blown. The gang drove him out until they came to an open farm land. It was here that Steve figured they'd kill him, since no one would hear the shots. But as he was pulled out and forced to stand off to the side, an idea came to him. He asked one simple question, who would be the leader after he was gone? And this created an argument between the gangsters as each boasted why they should lead. The man holding the gun at Steve suddenly turned to shoot the other, and Steve instantly lashed out, striking the gunner on his jaw!


Ralph had arrived on the scene just in time to watch Steve knock out the last of the Phantom Gang. The surviving two members were arrested on charges of murder and grand theft. While they were having coffee an hour later, Steve confided in Ralph that it was by far the strangest case he had ever been a part of...

Synopsis for "The God of the Ruby Eye: Part 10"Edit

Tod had arrived in the deepest part of the Symian Palace to find an old wizard and his seductive young wife, Tamir, whom he followed into the back room. In an act of jealousy, Dante the sorcerer prepares a potent spell to be cast upon the adventurer. He summons his servant and instructs him to deliver two drinks to his wife and Tod, the one for Tod carrying a powerful potion to render him helpless and susceptible to suggestion. Tamir is disgusted by her husbands action and grabs a knife but Dante warns her that his life and Tod's were now connected, if she killed him then Tod would die too. Tamir begs for his release from the spell, but Dante first requires a message to be delivered to his nemesis, Torog. Following the wizard's command, the spellbound Tod Hunter, who wore an envelope on a string around his neck, went to the underground river where a canoe had been docked nearby. With Dante's thought waves guiding him, Tod navigated through the rushing rapids, steering the boat around the jutting rocks that were scattered about, until he reached a smooth underground lake. A watchman on the small dock blocked Tod from progressing further onto the land, when he noticed the letter that he carried around his neck.


Tod was taken before Torog, who read the letter from Dante with disgust. It told him to kill the messenger if he valued his life, or else Tod was ordered to kill him. At first, it seemed like Torog would heed the letter's warning. But as he studied Tod closely, he could see that Dante had in fact put a spell over the man, robbing him of his own will. He summons his own mage, Saga, to be brought in to help remove the curse. A short while later, Tod awakened from the effects of the spell, his memory had also returned though the events of the past few days was vague, and he couldn't recall where he left Tommy and Gail. Torog tells him that Dante the wizard placed a spell on Tod and tried to have him kill Torog, who was the rightful ruler of the Symian Palace and the father of Tamir. He had been overthrown by Dante and forced into hiding, always plotting with his remaining loyal guards at getting revenge upon the old usurper. Tod Hunter still couldn't remember any of it, but he swore to Torog to help him overthrow Dante, if he returned the favor by helping him find his friends Tommy and Gail. Unseen, two of Torog's followers overhear this and decide to tell Dante about the plot, hoping to recieve a large reward....


Torog's army met in preparation for the attack, arming themselves with swords and spears. Soon, with Tod and Torog leading the charge, the small army set out in boats towards the temple where Dante readily awaited them...

Synopsis for "The Plantation Uprising: Part 6"Edit

Dale and Don, accompanied by part of the company from the jungle outpost, are proceeding up the river in hopes of catching the ivory smugglers after managing to confiscate their stolen loot. While on the island where Dale and Don were first captured, the other half of the company that includes the Lieutenant wait as a mysterious boat approaches the shore.They watched from the brush as men started to unload the tusks off the boat. The lieutenant told his men to spread out and surround the smugglers, and to charge in when he gives the signal. After sufficient time had passed to allow his men to get into position, the lieutenant fires his gun into the air. The men unloading the cargo of tusks quickly found themselves surrounded by the armed militia, having no choice but to surrender.


But as one party is apprehended, a sinister plan is being carried out back on the river. Riding in a small launch, the smuggler's leader and his men are dropping mines into the water to destroy the militia ship carrying Dale and Don. Fate steps in, however, when the sound of their launch's engine is faintly heard by Dale, and she alerts the general that there might be a trap up ahead. Fiftye feet before hitting the explosive mines, the ship drops anchor and the crew pick up the trail on foot... an unexpected move, as the smuggler boss is still listening for the impending explosion back at the hideout. What he hears instead is the military general shouting for him to surrender. The boss replies with a hail of bullets from his tommy-gun, which forces the patrol group to scatter for cover. One of them throws a firey branch onto the thatched roof of the smuggler's hut, setting it ablaze. Seconds later, the fire catches the gunpowder kept in the hideout and an explosion knocks Dale and the patrol off their feet. But it wasn't over yet, because they then spotted the gang trying to escape by speedboat, which they must have boarded after exiting through a back door. It seems they'll get away at first, but then their boat hits against something in the water and blows up. The smugglers had forgotten about the mines they had set up before. And so goes a tragic end to a bunch of criminals, and another adventure for Dale Daring and Don Brewster coming to a wrap.

Synopsis for Captain Desmo: "Hidden Paradise: Part 2"Edit

After trudging through sleet and snow in the Himalayas with a party of porters in search of a lost expedition, Captain Desmo and Gabby found the entrance to a hidden tropical valley behind a mountain. While they are exploring the seemingly miraculous land, a large prehistoric crocodile strikes out of the nearby river, almost catching Desmo in its large jaws! The group take refuge from this menace atop a rocky knoll. They had to get across that river, so a distraction was needed. Desmo volunteers. Gabby begins to lead the party across the murky waters as Desmo lured the crocodile into chasing him up a tree. As soon as he saw Gabby's signal, Desmo took hold of a vine and swung over the crocodile and the river, to the shore on the other side. There they found a trail which they followed all the way to a high wall built from wood and bamboo; atop stands a guard who calls out for them to halt. A small door built into the large barricade opened, revealing a rotund fellow, and behind him was another gentleman that made Irma gasp from within the group. She pushed her way past and ran up to the man, throwing her arms around him. It was her father, the professor whom they were trying to find! Professor Gladstone invites the party inside and gives his thanks especially to Captain Desmo for helping him get reunited with his only daughter. He then explains the need of the high walls to the curious Desmo, the tribe he lives with are a peaceful lot and yet they are contantly under attack by the Mudas, a tribe of giants who are savage and war-like. Right at that moment a scream rang out from the watchtower as a tribesman fell to the ground, a giant arrow piercing his chest. The Mudas were attacking again! Quickly the villagers prepare their defense, under the direction of the professor. Gabby and Desmo peered out over the wall to see what was happening, and nearly lost their balance in shock of the sight that befell them... The Mudas Tribe were indeed huge. They towered over the tree canopy, wielding large spears and shouting in a booming concert of yells. It doesn't seem to Desmo that the archers will be able to kill all the Mudas before they break through the wall and stampede on the villagers. Thinking fast, he has Gabby bring the porters' machine gun, that they could use it to thin out the numbers. Unluckily for them, the gun jams just as one more giant remains. It staggers closer until it's able to nab Desmo in its hand and lift him high up in the air. Gabby, in his desperation, makes a sling out of the gun belt and loads a huge rock into the center, swinging and letting it fly like a missile directly into the Mudas' skull, causing it to topple over and drop the captain safely into the brush.


With the last of the monsters destroyed, there is great rejoicing among the tribe and Professor Gladstone. Irma decides to stay with her father in the tropical land hidden in the mountains. Following their wishes, Marie promises not to print anything in her paper about the valley, keeping its secret safe. And so Captain Desmo, Gabby, and the hiking party depart, heading back to the village of Delhor and new adventure!

Synopsis for "Gunrunner"Edit

Buck Trainor was a wandering businessman who sold arms and ammunition to countries that suffered from constant uprisings and revolts. He always sold to the highest bidder, favoring neither one side nor the other, as long as he made a profit. It was the life of a gunrunner, and Buck lived it well.


Buck was responding to a call from General Panchu Martinez, a well known revolutionist who is trying to take over his country's government. He had sent for Buck because his fighting supplies were starting to run low, and he needed stronger arms in order to even up the odds against the governments forces. Buck and Martinez sat in the general's office, sharing some cigars as the negotiations commenced. Buck's price of $1,500,000 would buy the general all the guns and ammunition he needed, a steep price for sure. Though he was unhappy with the expenses, General Martinez needed Buck's supplies if he was going to successfully complete the raid on the city of Fortuna, blowing it to pieces to serve as an example to the government. But when he mentioned this fact, Buck started to have reservations. He did run an illegal business, true, but he was still a decent enough man to be wary when women and children's lives were at stake. There would be very few survivors if Martinez used his weapons on a city full of innocent people... He called the deal off, enraging the general. Martinez confronted Buck, who was assaulted with verbal threats and mean gestures. So Buck retaliated with a fist to the general's jaw which sent him toppling to the floor. Aware of the danger he now faced, Buck Trainor made his escape through the open window and landed on the heavy tropical underbrush growing at the side of the house. He had ran no more than thirty yards when Buck heard the unmistakeable shouts of the general's soldiers as they began tracking him. He raced to the pier, kicked off his shoes, and jumped in the water where his boat was anchored about a mile out. By the time he had reached the bow, the soldiers arrived with the general and opened fire on him. Buck called out to his crew to lower the ladder and bring out the machine guns and the rocket launcher, which the seamen did while ducking for cover as the bullets whizzed by their heads.


The battle between Buck's men and Martinez's forces lasted for only five minutes as the rocket launched straight into Martinez's headquarters. After all became silent, Martinez and a great number of his staff no longer existed to plaque the nation with revolt. The propeller of the boat started spinning, taking them out of the bay. Buck told his men to steer the vessel northward towards Costa Playa. He had a strong feeling that there were folk out that way that needed his business, and Buck always went where the money took him...

Synopsis for "The Missionary's Daughter"Edit

Tom, while on a short vacationin Chineses territory, decides to take a turn around the harbor in a friend's motorboat. It is night, and a dense fog begins to roll in. Nearby his location, three men struggle to make their motor work, to no avail. Tom spots them through the fog and pulls his boat up next to theirs to offer a lift back to dock. They accept his offer and step aboard, with Tom noticing two of the men carrying strange bundles with them as they went. They ask to be let off at a point a little ways off from the the main dock, making Tom a bit suspicious, but he tells them he'll do the best he can. The thick fog greatly decreases visibility, Tom can only rely on his knowledge of the area to guide his boat through. Suddenly, a small dinghy crosses in front of his bow, leading to an impact that knocks one of the three mysterious passengers overboard, as well as the woman aboard the dinghy to cry out for help. Tom Brent leapt into the water, where he takes hold of the unconciouss girl and pulls her back aboard his boat. He attempts to revive her, but is stopped by one of the men pulling a gun out of his coat. Tom is ordered to continue steering to where they want to go, while they keep the girl in the cabin to use as a hostage should he think of trying anything. He comes across a chinese patrol boat that is making routine searches of all vessels, as there are reports of a group of smugglers in the area. The inspector boards Tom's craft and asks to check the cabin, which was where the three smugglers were currently hiding. The woman Tom saved steps out of the cabin in a hasty movement, as if pushed, and greets the patrol unit, saying she was Tom's wife. The inspector seems satisfied that they weren't hiding anything, and orders his men back onto the boat to continue the search.
Finally, the smugglers arrived at the cove where they had their hideout and ordered Tom to stop the boat. He knew that if he didn't act now, he and the girl would be killed, so Tom lands a sucker punch on the man closest to him. He grabs the girl and the two of them hop overboard and swim to the far shore and hide in a patch of reeds where they properly introduce themselves. The woman is Judy Leeds, whose father works with the missionaries at the main dock. Tom apologizes for hitting her boat and getting her into this mess but Judy simply shakes her head, saying that she has a feeling it will all be over soon. Before he can ask what she meant, they are interrupted by an old man holding a shotgun. Not believing their story, the old man takes them back to his fishing hut where he can call the police on them. Meanwhile, at the smuggler's hideout where the boat was anchored, the men who hijacked Tom's boat were conducting what they believe to be a business deal with a gentleman and his companions. It turns out that the man was the inspector in an undercover racket, and as soon as the money is passed, he and the patrolmen arrest the smugglers.


Tom and Judy are later found by the inspector and released from the old man's custody. But, Tom asks, how did they know where to find the hideout? The inspector reveals that he had their boat followed after being tipped off by what Judy said earlier, about Tom being her husband. Inspector John Leeds would have known if his daughter had gotten married, after all!

Synopsis for "The Count and the Countess"Edit

Skip Schuyler is one of the best agents in the United States Intelligence Service, having cracked more spy rings than any other man. He was on assignment at the station where two international spies, known as the Count and Countess, were rumored to be meeting. His orders were to find out what they were up to, and stop them. When the train arrives and the passengers start to step off, Skip spots a suspicious bearded gentleman meet with a young blonde, each were speaking russian. He follows them by cab to a hotel where he waits until they signed the registry and have been taken to their room. Skip then signs in for himself, taking note of the last recent entry which confirms that the man and woman are the two he is looking for, "Count and Countess Ludwig Sarnovsky", and beside it was the room number. He made sure to get the room directly across the hall from theirs, and then made a call to headquarters to request the help of a man called Pete Garth, who specialized in the installation of concealed dictaphones. Five minutes later, Skip watched through his partly open door as Sarnovsky and the woman left their room for the dining hall. Garth arrived a moment later, and with Skip's skeleton key, they entered the couple's room and began setting up the dictaphone behind the radiator. All that was left to do now was to wait until tomorrow, to see if the device picks up any noteworthy conversation. The next day, having retrieved the dictaphone while Mr. Ludwig Sarnovsky was away, Skip and Pete headed back to headquarters so they can listen to whatever revealing evidence was recorded. The device begins repeating what was said between the two spies late last night. The Count had come to America to steal the plans to a new type of army high-speed plane, which had just been perfected by the engineers. The plans were kept in a vault at an army base in Virginia, and they were planning to strike tonight!


Skip took a small group with him to the military base where he told the comander in charge about his plane, and then waited until nightfall. An hour after dark, an aeroplane swooped in from the Northeast, settled lightly down onto the landing strip and taxied to the front of one of the hangars. The pilot was revealed to be the Countess as she stepped out of the cockpit to meet the mechanic that came running up. She said that her plane's fuel was running low, so she came down to try and get a spare supply, and he replied that he'd have to ask the commander if it was okay. As the mechanic walked off towards the office, a stealthy figure slipped out of the plane and hurried off into the shadows of the hangar. Watching from behind some crates, Skip left the others to deal with the girl while he followed after the shadowy suspect. When he got into the hangar, he saw that the safe on the wall had already been opened. Someone then ran quickly past him towards the exit, but years of training have given Skip the ability to move without hesitation, and he tackled the figure before he could reach the door! It was Sarnovsky, the Count, all right, the force of the tackle having knocked the breath out of him. Ahead of him, Skip's men had already taken the woman into custody.


Skip Schuyler stood in the commander's office, with Ludwig Sarnovsky and his partner Hedi Laskey, alias the Countess, in cuffs waiting. There fate would be life behind bars, and Skip would recieve another nod for his flawless case-solving skills.

Synopsis for "The Pirate Ship: Part 12"Edit

While hiding out in a cave, Rusty and his friends are befriended by Alfred Forrest, a strange old man who is also an enemy of Slade. Steve volunteers with an idea to help Alfred get his revenge when he notices the powdered dust that came off the rocks. Back at the house, Slade had been drinking heavily while his men were playing cards, deciding that because there was no way for the boys and Steve to get off the island, they could just take their time hunting them. Eventually, a drunken Slade hobbled off to bed as night began to creep over them. A few minutes pass before a long, manlike shadow is cast across the wall of the home. It makes it's way up the stairs towards Slade's room where Omar, who was standing guard out front, suddenly became terror stricken at the sight of the approaching figure and made a mad dash down the hallway. The figure opens the door and steps into the room, walking to the side of Slade's bed as the man awoke due to the disturbance. When he opened his eyes, he saw the ghostly white figure of Alfred Forrest standing before him. Slade believed he had killed Alfred months ago, so this could only be his ghost come back to haunt him! He fainted out of fright and the "ghost", which was actually just Alfred covered head-to-toe in powdered dust, lifted the blinds on the window in a signal to Steve. He had just finished tying the fainting coward to a chair when Steve came in with the boys. It was time to take care of the others, so Steve left Rusty, Specs, and Tubby in charge of keeping Slade company, while he and Alfred went downstairs with their guns to seek out the rest of the crime ring. The Duchess is the first to see them coming, but her shouts are silenced after a swift blow to the head. Hunch suddenly appears from out of a doorway off to the side, with a hunting rifle in hand, about ready to fire on Steve and Alfred. Lucky for them, Rusty been watching from the banister above and, noticing the humpbacked villain right away, he leaped on top of him and knocked him unconciouss to the floor. Soon they have the entire smuggling gang tied up and glaring, with Alfred laughing that they really believed he was a ghost.


An odd feeling nags at the back of Rusty's mind, not believing that it was really over. And as a mysterious boat floats towards the island shore, it would seem like he was right...

Synopsis for "El Diablo: Part 10"Edit

The U.S. battleship, while carrying the Ambassador, is passing in review before a fort that's been secretly captured by El Diablo's men. They intend to fire real shells into the ship instead of the blanks that are supposed to be used as a salute. Don and Red were already tipped off about the situation, and came streaking out of the sky in an airplane, hoping to attack the fort in time to prevent a disaster that could lead to war. Red mans the plane's machine gun, sending a hail of lead into the men behind the cannons. In this way, El Diablo's grim plan to blast a United States battleship out of the water ends in failure. Regular members of the army are able to retake the fort in time to switch back the real shells for the blanks and fire the salute, with the ship and her crew none the wiser.

The chief of police and other dignitaries, including the russian consul Ivan Dankevich and Herr Von Stolz the german merchant, hurried forward to meet Don and Red at the landing strip. They all stepped int the hangar where Don Kerry debriefed them on the situation, reminding that El Diablo's plan to destroy the battleship must never reach the papers. They all congratulate him and Red, though it seemed to the chief that El Diablo once again got away. Don grinned and replied that, No, he hadn't. When he was captured before, Don noted that El Diablo had a thick german accent, one that would be very difficult to hide. They all stood in shock as the realization hit them that El Diablo was among them right now! Von Stolz drew out his gun, but Don is ready for this and makes a quick grab for gun handle. The two men fight it out toe-to-toe until, finally, Don delivers a hammer-like blow that makes Von Stolz stagger to the ground. He is placed in handcuffs and led away to a waiting jail cell, leaving the mystery of the murders and rebellion solved at last!
