In the shot with Curly Howard literally flying along with the gold finding arrow, if you look closely, you can see that he's not just yelling, but that his lips are moving saying "HEYYYYYYY MOE!!!" See more »
[after Curly fires another arrow, and then finds that the Heavyset Prospector has it, after the arrow hit him in the butt, detecting the 'poke of gold' he had put in his back pocket]
Hey, that belongs to me!
That's all I wanted to know!
[He fires his gun, spinning Curly's hat the other way. The three run off]

This Three Stooges short isn't one of the more memorable ones, except it has the boys' mom in it. Who remembers what Curly, Larry and Moe's mom looked like? Not me, and I've seen this a few times over a 50-year period.
Actually, the answer is Monty Collins, an ugly guy in drag who plays "Ma Stooge." She/he looks more like "Ma Barker!" Outside of her-him, it's a lot of standard Stooge slapstick with the boys hitting each other and a ton of sound effects. Early on the trio squeezes into a tiny bathroom and Moe shaves Curly with a straight razor, which will make you wince a few times!
Vernon Dent, a regular in the series, plays a prospector with a beard. You may not recognize him, but his voice told me who it was.
