What’s happening down in Pine Ridge? Lum has gotten back into the good graces of the town and the normal cycle of routines pick back up. Lum is asked to return to his job in managing the silver mine for the stockholders.
Dick talks to Lum about ideas in handling their investments. Dick offers the advice of selling the mine to a buyer,so the stockholders can be paid off. As long as it’s a real silver mine, it ought to be no problem to sell.
Squire had a big hunk of silver to show around town, but Dick doesn’t believe it came from the mine. Dick is a fountain of advice in giving Lum ideas to get the mine in operation, and becoming profitable. Among the tips are to do a geological test, and lease out the mine to other companies out in Arizona to run it, and pay royalties to Lum and the stockholders.
Just then the rolling store arrives, and grandpap is with Abner to report on the sales for the day. Lum’s silver mine duties have caused the reordering of grocery stock to fall beside the wayside, and sales were down when there wasn’t enough to sell. Lum tries to tell Abner and grandpap about his plan to operate the silver mine on a royalty basis. He also puts out a message on the partyline to announce his new plan.
Lum announces his own stockholder meeting to explain all the details. As Lum spouts off wisdom to Abner and grandpap, berating them into feeling bad for having events planned in the timeslot for his meeting. Cedric enters with news that Lum’s gal Evelina is back. With a sudden shift in his own priorities, Lum has to get back on the phone to postpone his meeting so he can hang out with his girlfriend.
