Josh is in Kenton playing cards when a friend Boone Morgan enters and asks to talk to Josh who says he will be with him as soon as the hand is over. Boone nodding agreement backs up to the door where he faints. Josh rushes to him finding Boone has been shot in the side. They take him to Dr. Dan Wood but Boone passes away due to blood loss after making Josh promise to take him home. Josh claims the body to take to Boone's family in Cameron where they both lived for a while. Boone's father and sister are glad to see Josh but saddened at the news of Boone. Back in Kenton Morley and Fred Teton arrive asking about Boone and when they learn he is dead they want the $500 reward on Boone's head but the sheriff states Josh claimed the body and is due the reward. The Teton brothers follow Josh to Cameron to get their money while two telegraph messages from the sheriff to Cameron leave the mistaken impression Josh killed Boone for the reward putting Josh in jeopardy.

[In response to the Teton brothers claiming Josh killed Boone
Josh and Boone was real good friends. There wouldn't be any reason.
I can name one good reason: money.
See, Boone had a price on his head. It's no secret in this town that Randall's a bounty hunter.
Now, where can we find him?
