Jim Hudson had worked hard to build his little ranch into a success, even a little red schoolhouse. Today is the day that his girl is coming out West to join him in his life, and become the school teacher as well. Not all is well though, as we learn of trouble where cattle are dieing off from a mysterious malady. Can Jim prove who is poisoning the herd, and his horses? Will Dan be a rival for the hand of Mary?
What’s the story behind blocking the schoolhouse from being built, and keeping Mary from teaching in it? Lone Ranger discusses the situation with Tonto, and the way the whole town bows to the whims of Thomas Markheim.
Confronting both sides, Markheim and Jim Hudson, the truth begins to be revealed for the masked man. Rumors have been flying, but miscommunications are about to be resolved. With the Lone Ranger on hand to act as mediator, the betrayal and sabotage by a friend will be revealed. Enemies are destined to be friends, but what about the back stabbing friend who stirred up all the bad feelings? Will things be resolved so the schoolhouse will be used? Will the truth about Jim and Mary’s relationship come out? When Lone Ranger kicks the lid off the mystery, justice is done.
