The Whistling Ghost
IN BRIEF: Returning from the state capitol, the cowboys detour through Elbow Creek where California grew up. They stop at Paddy Bowman's cabin, but no one's there. They hear whistling, and when they investigate a ravine, someone shoots at them. In town, they learn Paddy was murdered two months before. Sheriff Down says the Whistling Ghost shows up every two or three nights and shoots anyone poking around the cabin. Hoppy find a red and gold skewbald stallion -- the same horse as was ridden by the shooter -- in the corral. The horse's owner is Slade, who runs the assay office. Hoppy and California eat with the sheriff and his wife. They talk with Ben Clayton, a lawyer and friend of Paddy's. He suspects Slade, who was in a longtime dispute with Paddy when he told the prospector he'd found only fool's gold. Paddy's wife and son went back east as a result. Slade now wants to buy Paddy's place. Hoppy visits Slade's office. A young man, Archer, is new to the staff. A woman named Lorraine works there. One night, the ghost is shot. It turns out to be Slade, who's really Paddy's son Davie, looking for his father's killer. His letter from his father indicates there's gold. Hoppy has him sing the words to the song he's been whistling. This affords a clue to finding the gold and a cash record book in the fireplace mantle. They capture Clayton, who'd hoped to get the gold. (Bill Bates)
