Everyone in Laramie knows Tecumsah Pruitt as a man who has made a lot of money on investments but who won't spend one dime on himself or his family. His son Owlie wants a new pair of boots to attend a dance but Tecumsah refuses to buy them. He keeps his private books in Lily's safe at the Birdcage. While there, he shoots at someone through the window but misses. When he doesn't return the next morning as expected, Lily asks Dan to check on him. Dan and Johnny find his farm to be run down with Tecumsah locked in the cellar by Owlie. Owlie forces them to join his dad and his mom to bring Lily and his dad's box of money. Lily brings the box and when Owlie opens it he finds only five dollars. Tecumsah is broke as he never had any money to invest but he gave others good advice over the years. Written by Anonymous
