Storyline

Cattleman Cliff Barton, the father of Deputy Sheriff Art Stratton's sweetheart, Thora Barton, is suspicious of his bankers and draws his money out of the bank. He is killed an hour later but not before he has thrown the money-bag into some bushes along the road. When Art returns from a pursuit, the killers plan to trick him and his horse Buddie, who can smell money like a bloodhound, into finding the cache, taking the money and then framing Art for the killing and robbery. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
