A tornado scatters Favor's cattle herd. All are rounded up except 100 head that the children of an orphanage collected, and which the head of the orphanage, Smithers (Eddie Bracken), innocently sold for the giveaway price of $300 to the local banker, Randolph (Everett Sloane), who knew that the cattle were illegally rounded-up. Randolph sold the cattle to an honest trail boss for $3000. In a complicated scheme to con $3000 back from the banker, Favor has Wishbone and Mushy, using aliases, join the orphanage as volunteers. Favor plants 200 head of cattle near the orphanage to be "discovered" by Wishbone and the kids. Smithers and Wishbone sell the cattle to Randolph for $3000, Wishbone signing the bill of sale with his alias name. Wishbone afterward convinces Smithers to let Wishbone go off with the $3000 to find the guy who "lost" the 200 head, and Favor descends with the sheriff to claim the 200 head since Randolph is holding a false bill of sale. So the upshot is: Favor got $3000 ... Written by chipe
