Synopsis for Pep Morgan: "On the Ranch"

Pep and his friends, Mr. Smith and Mary, take a vacation out at Smith's ranch. Pedro, one of the ranch hands, is caught whipping a horse, and when Pep tries to stop it, Pedro lays into him! Mr. Smith fires Pedro on the spot! Later that day Pep, Mary and her father tour the range on horseback. A bullet suddenly whizzes by, just missing Pep, but making a hole in his hat! They can just make out the form of Pedro before he runs off between the boulders. As soon as they return, Mr. Smith gives orders to his foreman, Buck, to gather a search party to bring Pedro in.

That night, when everyone has turned in, Pedro returns to the house and starts a fire outside. The whinnying of the horses as Pedro tries to steal one wakes Pep up and brings him to the window. He hurriedly alerts the others. Using a line of people to pass each other buckets of water, the fire is eventually extinguished. Because they were so quick to respond, Pedro hadn't enough time to grab a horse. He is quickly tracked down and beaten up by Pep. Mr. Smith stops Pep, telling him to leave some for the sheriff and the others at Pedro's "necktie party".

Synopsis for Clip Carson: "The Cult of the Tiger (Part I)"

Clip Carson is exploring the Bengali jungle, when a cry reaches his ears, followed by the roar of a big cat. Clip follows the sounds to a man being attacked by a tiger! He fires his rifle at the beast, slaying it. The man he saved, Clip finds out, is an old college buddy of his, Japur Chunda. Japur confides that he was being threatened by a group calling themselves the Cult of the Tiger, a group that assassinated his father months earlier. Clip decides to help his old friend fight them off.

Chunda introduces Clip to his step-brother Jaffeer, and cousin Panjore, with whom he shares his estate. That night, Clip converses with Jaffeer about his theory that the cult is murdering in order to gain possession of the estate and surrounding land. His fathers death means that his brother, Japur, was the next in line to the inheritance. Suddenly, Clip hears a sound outside the study, and he is about to open the door to find out who it is...

He rounds back, taking a shortcut to the top of a cliff where he can watch over the stagecoach as it passes beneath him in a rush.
