Angry townspeople demand from Favor 1000 cattle (1/3 of his herd) or $15,000 because Thad Clemens, an erstwhile reputable Texas trail boss, took 1000 of their cattle on consignment but then disappeared with the cattle. Because Favor is also a Texas trail boss, they insist on holding him responsible for Clemens misdeeds. Favor learns that Clemens is in a nearby town, so he rides there to find Clemens, who won't tell Favor why, how or to whom the $15,000 went. Finding him spending his time in Miss Katie's saloon, Favor assumes he lost the money to her but she tells Favor he only drinks dime beer and never gambles. When Favor sees Lt. Cory Clemens enter the saloon followed by being erroneously accused of beating up Thad, Favor determines there is more to the situation.

Favor confronts Miss Katie who was not aware how the money was obtained but she has a bank ... Written by chipe

Gil Favor: Sometimes it gets right peaceful on a trail drive. You're travelin' easy in pretty country, with a trail broke herd actin' gentle as lambs. Weather's fine, air's fresh, sun's warm. That's when I begin to worry. Somethin's bound to happen. And out of all the bad things that might be, it usually turns out to be the kind of trouble you least expect. My name's Gil Favor, trail boss.
