Flint along with Bill and Charlie stop in a empty saloon for a beer. Charlie asks the bartender if he would cut high card for the beers. The bartender tells them that is up to Lace Andrews instead of him. The name causes Flint to ask where Andrews is and when the bartender is slow to respond Flint nearly chokes him to death until Bill steps in to stop him and sends Charlie for Chris. Flint lapses into his memory where he recalls that eight years ago three men robbed his fiancé, Nancy Lee Davis, of their silver wedding gifts. During the robbery she is shot in a struggle and dies later in Flint's arms. He sets out on their trail. He is eventually wounded and nearly dies from an infection but is nursed back to health by Loretta, a saloon girl who falls in love with Flint. The wound causes him to lose the trail of the third man, Lace Andrews, until now..
