When three town toughs attack an old peddler for cheating them, a Eastern tenderfoot comes to aid.

The plan backfires when a gunfighter arranges for a prize-fight against the three toughs. Written by David Bassler

Quotes

[first lines]
Luke Herkimer: [writing in his ledger book] One dozen patent-pending sure-fire husband-getting sassafras sashay - IOU one hen.
[speaking to the audience]
Luke Herkimer: This is your lucky day, one you won't soon forget. I travel far and wide all over the West sellin' and tradin'. You're lucky you caught me when you did - I was on my way somewhere else. Herkimer's my name; tradin's my game. Got somethin' for everybody.
