In this story a very paranoid and nutzo character finds a sack full of rubies in the jungle and gets it in his head that Nyoka wants to steal them. He hires a native to stab her while she is asleep but he misses and she survives. She tries to investigate her own murder attempt and in the process gets KO'd from behind by the looney-tunes guy. He ties her up but she quickly escapes and pursues him and brings him to justice. Pics below show her being KO'd, tied up and getting loose.
