Wyatt Earp joins Sheriff Bat Masterson in rounding up 7 potential train robbers. He leaves Deputy Hal Norton in charge as chief deputy during his absence. Hal recalls several past experiences with Wyatt in dealing with Mayor Jim Kelley (who considers replacing Hal), his three deputies (including Louie who is an upstart), a potential murder trial, a lynch mob, Texans who haven't checked their firearms, reluctant witnesses, and a loving couple. When Wyatt returns, he notes that Deputy Hal has acted professionally in dealing with all these events. Written by
