They all contest at the County Fair, when Bud captures all the trophies in sight for his prowess, including the hand of the fair Katie. Arizona Rob, Soda Water Sam and Limpy Jim are disconsolate thereat, and take to reading openly and in secret, the small "ads" in the crumpled paper from Omaha. They all strike "a plant" of two confidence men: "A wealthy widow desires to make the acquaintance of a Westerner." Each, unknown to the other, writes, and are requested to send a sum of money as evidence of good faith. After several weeks of waiting for the return sign of the widow, their mutual secret becomes open and they conclude, both as individuals and syndicates, they have been stung. Arizona volunteers to mosey up to Omaha and try to get back the original heart balm investment. He sends the coy widow an important check, and goes on the same train with the letter. He visits the newspaper office and lays for the "Con" who gets the letters, and then trails him to the lair of his confederates. As they are about to split the proceeds of the check he bobs up serenely, and covering them with his trusty irons, "persuades" them to pay his bill which includes his traveling expenses and the original investment of his partners, together with divers "extras" in the form of heart damages, in a naive western way that takes the starch and unearned increment out of the swindlers. Then he buys a handsome wedding present for Bud and Katie. His partners are reimbursed, but concluded that the risks of matrimony are too complicated for their simple calculation.
