Martial...I was just gonna apply for a job.

Its all right son. My deputy just gone down

there with all the men we need.

What's all the trouble, Martial ?

Who is he ?

Boys, get that man. I want him.

Wait a minute. I will get him.

Watch this fella.

Well Martial, I guess you got me ...

but I was not mixed up with that gang

...I was trying to help you.

-You darn fool.. I noted.

I just wanted to talk to you

when you lead out.

I got a job for you

and it ain't fighting fire with others.

Say, I been looking for a fellow

that can shoot, ride like you for months.

Think I am going to let you get away ?

No Sire...

Take a look at this.

-What's wrong with that ?

-Nothing maybe ..

it might be funny to me that every time

this gang organizes Rodeo

...their own men win all the first prizes.

Once it begins to look like an outsider

was going to win, he gets sick..

two or three has even died from it.

-cannot arrest them for that, Martial.

-no, maybe not.

... but its mighty peculiar ...

that when all these outsiders fall

fall off from them tough horses suffering

from snakebites. I tell you it ain't natural.

what do you want me to do, get snake bit ?

No, my idea is for you to trail over there

and sign up for the Rodeo.

I will come along after

and do some private investigating.

...while you work in on the gang.

cause you don't have to know me

when we get there.

-what do you say to that son ?

-sounds great to me.

-when do we start ?

-right away.

this game is getting pretty hot for us.

If we are tiring the law to figure out

something crooked with this whole Rodeo business

they will start investigating.

Now I will decide when we make our next clean up

right here in Dalton.

head for the border...

before something happens

we will stick up the next stage of the mine

grab the rodeo receipt, and clear out.

you are right spike. they acted mighty suspicious

when that fella died over the boulder

-when do we start ?


Dolores will board the stage, down at sagebrush

and give you boys a high sign when the money is aboard

women passengers as a stage crew

ain't liable to fight much anyhow

.well, well Cramer.

meet my new deputy John Weston.

I want you to paddle west with the shortcut trail

the one that leads to Dalton.

save him a whole days journey, if he

had to go on the way over the desert.

give him a horse. I will see

that another is sent to you.

-sure thing.

-you better get going then, right now.

the trail starts outside the corral,

cant get off of it.

then you go 14 miles

straight through the mountain

that will drop you right out of the timber

on the main stage road that leads to Dalton.

Howdy Miss Carter,

going home for the big round up ?

-Oh yes! I promised Dad that I will be there.

-I bet, he will be mighty glad to see you.

I will be glad to see him too.

-Pardon me. Do you mind if I sit on this side?

-Well, certainly not. Its quiet alright.

looks like we are getting some help

from back there.

you sure got us out of the jam,

that time stranger. nice riding.

you don't happen to be going

to the Dalton Rodeo... do you ?

-Yes I am.

- Well tie your horse on behind and ride in with us.

thanks, I will do that.

that was very fine of you

to come to our rescue.. Mr.. ....

Weston Mam.

John Weston from Utah.

I came over for the rodeo ...

...I saw your distress signal

from the top of the ridge..

when I saw all those men riding behind,

I thought I better come down and investigate.

-My distress signal ?

-it was mine.

I saw the men coming and waved for help.

that was kind of an unusual place
