At Denver medicine man Shadrack Bennington parts ways with Princess Fatima who wants to marry him and go east. Shadrack steals her lion Caesar who is part of his show. Shadrach and Wooster ask Adams while he is half asleep if Shadrack can join the train to San Francisco to which Adams agrees much to his regret later. Adams per usual blows his stack when he encounters Caesar staring him in the face and hears Shadrack is making proposals to young women. Shadrack continues to put his show on for the wagon train selling his magic potion until it runs out. He entices Jennifer 'Jenny' Robertson to be his new Princess in his act. She quickly learns to enjoy the life falling for Shadrack while the orphan Winfy Robertson takes to Shardrack as a father figure and enjoys Caesar. At San Francisco Shadrack leaves Jenny and Winfy behind to be free and on his own much to their dismay. Winfy is close to death when Adams finds Shadrack bringing him back to see Winfy and give him his magic potion. ... Written by Anonymous
