Ernest 'Ernie' Handsfelt holds up a train stealing the Wells Fargo shipment single handily but accidentally leaves his hat behind which has his name in it. The name makes it easy to track him down. Wells Fargo sends Jim Hardie to find him and the money but instead of being alone as is the norm they send a new man, Merle Workman, with Hardie so Workman can study his methods and Hardie can evaluate him. Before this he was an under sheriff who had a reputation for getting his man but feet first. The pair are on a stage when the driver spots a woman he knows as Emily with a broken carriage. A wheel nut has let a rear wheel come off. Jim asks the driver for a flat washer and wire to jury-rig a fix and rides into town with her. Introductions reveal she is Emily Handsfelt, sister of the man they are seeking. Jim to hide his identity introduces himself as Jim Henshaw who is looking for mining claims. Jim is sure Workman is after blood while Jim decides the way to Ernie is not Emily. Written by Anonymous
