Nancy fears Pauline will use the money Nancy inherited from her father to back him in a theatrical venture. Nancy's heiress chum Marcla Farnsworth wires for a ranch reservation, using her own name, confirmation to go to "William F. Waller" at Smith's office. Donal:! Sturgis, young garage mechanic, jumps at Smith's idea that he get a job at T Slash and look after Nancy. Smith gives him expenses money hut in a crowd Smoothie Dick, Alexander's tool, "lifts" Don's roll and Smith's wallet. Smith suspects Don and signing himself Waller, wires the Jimtown Sheriff to arrest Don. Trailing Nancy, Smoothie learns she now has the securities representing her inheritance. To doublecross Alexander, he. follows Nancy, wiring Sol Perriwell as "Roger J. Barclay" that he's a ranch buyer. Don "rides the rods" to Wyoming and is known at T Slash as Cinders Malloy. At the Jimtown stage station Nancy induces Roberta (Bobbie) Rowland, new ranch maid, to change clothes and identities. Complications begin when Don surprises Nancy reading a letter from her uncle addressed "Marcla Farnsxvorth." Young Tony Perriwell proposes to Bobbie, thinking she's the Farnsworth heiress, and is accepted, and Kirk Maxwell interviews her for a society paper. Nancy's securities and Maxwell's manuscript are stolen and Nancy's uncle writes her that Pauline's securities were stolen and Nancy is suspected. He flies to Jimtoxvn.

Darting to the flour bin, Nancy plunged both' hands and arms, However his heavy-lidded eyes revealed nothing of what he might be thinking and his bulldog face retained its stolidity. Mrs. Perriwell broke the silence. "By the way, Mr. Barclay, I found this can of beans where your car was parked. Some one has penciled 'Wise Guy' on the label. Does that give you a hint or a clue?" "Beans? 'Wise Guy'?" the man repeated blankly. Then he gasped, "Well, I'll be—" and bit off the rest with a click of his teeth, bare^to the shoulder, deep into thej "The words 'RAT' and 'Double soft flour and brought forth a from the bin small bundle wrapped in cloth, but so coated with flour it was impossible to tell the true color of this cloth or exactly what it might be. When she op'ened the bundle, exposed lay her own pearl necklace, her bracelet, her rings, her brooch, jeweled wrist watch and lastly, a well-filled envelope. With trembling fingers the excited girl drew from this envelope certain stocks and bonds. She noted the value of each. The total ran up to S200.000! Here were the securities of the three Smith girls, Nancy, Elizabeth and Jane! Here also was S50.000 in stock and bonds that belonged to Mrs. Pauline Stevenson Huntington-Smythe.
