Actually, the show is mislabeled. The date may or may not be correct, the actual name of the episode is: The rustlers. Although the show with this date is listed in certain radio logs as one titled as, Flowers for Polly.
Back in the early days of the Old West cattle rustling was a quick way to earn money and build a large herd for an ambitious rancher. It was actually a preferred and acceptable practice until much of the stray cattle had been claimed, and established ranchers didn’t like the idea of upstarts rustling their hard won rustled cattle away. Today a rancher has a scheme to do some rustling of his own cattle, and lay blame at the feet of local indian tribes. When Cisco rides the trail, and encounters the ranchers rustling cowboys, Cisco defends his indian pals, and a fist fight is sure to break out.
Needing a more serious distraction, the rancher sets up Cisco to take the fall for a murder. Meanwhile in a cafe, Cisco and Pancho enjoy a meal as they flirt with the lovely waitress. Amazingly the cute little waitress even has a small herd, but has had trouble when rustlers rode off with much of her cows. Cisco has to take a stand with the sheriff in defense of his indian friends, and he pushes for a meeting of the indians, the law, and the rancher. Things get tense, and for now Cisco backs down, but if we know Cisco it’s just a plan to buy time and make his own play for justice.
The ever puzzled Pancho marvels at his friends apparent cowardice, but don’t worry Cisco lays out his plan to trap the rancher. The shady rancher has his own ideas though, so whose plan will prove to convince the sheriff? It’s not looking good when the lawman arrests Cisco and begins hauling our heros off to jail. Can Cisco and Pancho get free? Will they be able to prove to the sheriff who the real rustlers are? The shady rancher and his cowboys are smart enough to worry, but not smart enough to stop rustling.
There’s a happy ending when Cisco reports back to the senorita in the cafe. A happy ending, but a mushy one, so be warned little kiddies. Oh Cisco! The Lone Ranger, or Matt Dillon would never fall for getting all mushy with their damsel in distress. (although I’ll bet Miss Kitty wouldn’t mind much.)
