- LAST WIRE FROM STOP GAP
Original Airdate: October 16, 1960
Synopsis. On their way to Denver, Bart and Beau pick up $6,500 in a poker game at Stop Gap, then decide to wire the money to Denver through the Hulett Telegraph Company. They soon discover the company is a fake—the telegraph line leads to a cave two miles away, where the crooks stash the customers’ money and send phony messages in return. The Mavericks devise a scheme to recover the money and put the company out of business.
This episode features the following two Pappyisms: “Hard work never hurt anybody—who didn’t do it” and “All men are equal before the law. But what kind of odds are those?”
