The leading citizen, Jud Hammerklein, is found guilty of murdering a gambler who had killed his son in cold blood earlier. Judge John Jefferson Hogan sentences Jud to hang. Since no one in Deadhorse is willing to be the hangman, the Judge sends for a professional executioner. Rowdy and Quince spot a mule which leads Rowdy to a pile of rocks. It is a grave but the man inside it is alive. The man, Hannibal H. Plew, recovers but Hey Soos has an uneasy feeling about him. When a rattlesnake bites Hey Soos, Hannibal teaches the men a new way to treat it that saves Hey Soos. Hannibal must be in Deadhorse by the thirteenth so he rides in with Wishbone and Mushy who go there for supplies. After he examines the scaffolding being built, they go to the saloon where he reveals to the men and Jud who he is. The Hammerklein boys admit trying to kill and stop him even though their father had promised everything must go by the law up to 3:00 pm on the thirteenth but he does not expect to be hanged - ...
