Trampas with brief appearance by Sheriff Abbott

Synopsis: Light Comedy.
When her $2000 dowry is stolen during a stage hold-up, Miss Mary
Charles Marshall (Hubbard) enjoins Trampas and a "kindly old gentleman"
horsetrader (Martin) to help her get it back.
But the talkative proper lady from the South has much to learn about the
ways of the "Wicked West," and she credits Trampas (who wishes she'd
realize that "all the gentlemen in the world don't come from Alabama") for
teaching her. (bj)
