Little Jake goes into Sarah Jones' shop and learns that Pedro the Bandit is in town. Pedro's attempted bank robbery is foiled by the Sheriff, Tex Tucker. Grandpa Twink tells Little Jake all about Tex... Once upon a time, Tex, together with his horse, Rocky, and his dog, Dusty, were crossing a desolate trail when they came across a child, a little Indian boy named Makooya. The boy was very hungry and so were Tex and his friends. But this was a barren place and there was no food to be found. Tex built a fire and little Makooya fell asleep. In the middle of the night he woke up screaming the word 'Kalamakooya' and an Indian Chief materialised. He caused the trees to bloom and the water falls to flow, and as a reward for finding his son, he gave Tex four magic feathers. One gave Dusty the power of speech, anothor did the same for Rocky, and the two remaining feathers made Tex' s guns swivel and fire automatically whenever he was in danger. Little Jake is delighted with this story and even more delighted when Pedro returns to town and is foiled again by Tex Tucker.
Pedro and Fernando, the Bandits, plan to kidnap Doc Haggerty and hold him to ransom. Fernando rides into town and tells Doc that Pedro is wounded and needs Doc's help, When Doc arrives at the Bandits' shack he is tied to a chair and Pedro writes a note to Tex Tucker, asking for 5,000 dollars if the citizens of Four Feather Falls want to see Doc alive again. Meanwhile, little Makooya has fallen sick and Chief Kalamakooya wants Doc to tend the little Indian boy. Tex, Dusty and Rocky set out to find Pedro and Fernando. When the Bandits see that Tex has no money with him they decide to shoot him. But Tex's magic guns fire first and the bandits are quickly routed. Doc is rescued and taken to Makooya, and soon the little Indian boy is well again.

Meanwhile, Pedro sneaks into the office where Tex's hat is hanging, and exchanges the magic feathers for ordinary ones. Dusty, who sees this, follows Pedro and takes the magic feathers from his hip pocket. He then goes off to find Rocky, jumps on his back and together they gallop off to find Tex who, without the aid of the magic feathers is at the mercy of the two bandits.

Unknown to Fernando, however, Dusty exchanges the hats once again. A tom-tom beats in the distance and it seems that the Indians are about to move in.

Pedro has set up a toll-gate and says that the citizens of Four Feather Falls must now pay to go through the Pass. Ma Jones refuses and she and Grandpa Twink take an alternative route into town through Black Boulder Canyon – a grim and forbidding place. Outwitted, Pedro and Fernando decide to steal some dynamite and blast down a huge black boulder which perilously hangs over the Canyon. If their plan succeeds, the Canyon will be completely blocked, and travellers to Four Feather Falls will have to pay Pedro and Fernando to go through Yellow Gulch Pass. Meanwhile, Tex Tucker has heard about the toll-gate and suspects the bandits' next move. He arrives at the Black Boulder in time to place the dynamite in a different position. With one shot from his magic guns he explodes the dynamite and the boulder crashes down into Yellow Gulch Pass foiling the bandits' plan to block up Black Boulder Canyon. The boulder smashes the bandits' toll-gate and also makes Black Boulder Canyon a safe route into Four Feather Falls.
Grandpa Twink tells how Sheriff Tex Tucker got himself arrested. Tex, Dusty and Rocky are on their way to Silver City in response to a call for help from Sheriff Jameson. Along the trail they camp down for the night. Suddenly a dark-clad man springs from the undergrowth, throws a blanket over Rocky, and rides him off into the darkness.

Snyder sells Tex the spare horse for fifty dollars.Tex and Dusty next run up against the very man they were looking for – Sheriff Jameson. But he does not believe that Tex is a Sheriff and in the saddle bag of the newly bought horse he discovers a stolen hag of money. Despite his protests, Tex is arrested and slung into jail... he refuses to use the magic guns on the law man. Ruff Snyder turns up at the jail and denies that he sold Tex a horse. Some nights later Tex and Dusty, looking out of their cell window, see Big Ben, obviously the 'Phantom Rider' — tether Rocky in the yard behind the jail. Ben calls on Tex and tells him that Jameson is on his way to Four Feather Falls to take over there.And Tex realises that the whole thing has been a frame-up.

Pedro and Fernando, the Bandits, find a map which leads to buried gold underneath the jail in Four Feather Falls. Tex overhears Pedro arranging for Fernando to be arrested so that he can dig for the gold in the jail. As the jail needs a new floor digging out and as the burried treasure doesn't exist, Tex happily arrests Pedro, instead of Fernando, and leaves the lazy Bandit alone in jail so that he can get along with the hard task of digging. Meanwhile, Mr. Jackson, the Bank Manager has broken the key to his strongroom, and the local cowboys can't be paid. Back in the jailhouse, Pedro is digging so weIl that he has made a passage beneath the street and right into the bank's strongroom. He thinks he has found buried treasure and starts handing out bags of gold through the jailhouse window where Fernando should be waiting to collect. But Fernando is asleep, and instead Pedro unknowingly hands out the bags of gold to Tex Tucker. Everyone is happy, the Bank can pay the cowboys and the jailhouse is ready for a new floor. Everyone, except Pedro and Fernado!
13 Gold is Where You Find It
Pedro and Fernando plan to make a fortune out of Yellow Gulch – their own property – by pretending to have found gold there.

Everyone wants to buy a piece of Yellow Gulch, and, after consultation, the two bandits decide to sell equal shares to all. Later, Tex Tucker notices the townspeople making off with picks and shovels. In Ma Jones' store he learns of the 'gold' in Yellow Gulch. Tex is suspicious and he asks Ma Jones and Dan Morse to help him carry out an idea. When silence has descended on Four Feather Falls, Ma Jones is confronted by Pedro and Fernando. Their intention is to commandeer some supplies, but Ma drops a hint about a telegram that has arrived, stating that the gold strike in Yellow Gulch is the biggest ever. Pedro and Fernando make a speedy exit, rather puzzled, but determined to buy back all the land that they have sold. That evening all the 'prospectors' are gathered in the Saloon... Pedro is sobbing. Tex announces that Pedro's grandmother has died... by family tradition, she has to be buried at Yellow Gulch... but now the Gulch no longer belongs to Pedro... and the bandit is very upset. 'I guess the only fair thing to do,' he says, 'is to put the land up for auction. That way Pedro will have the chance to buy it back at a fair price'. All are agreed on the auction, and, naturally, do very well out of it. As they leave the Saloon Pedro and Fernando are happy, too. But they wonder why Tex and his friends are laughing heartily...
