Salter tries to grab some of Digger's newly discovered Kerium, then tries to keep from be arrested and causes an explosion. Dangerous Hysterium Gas starts to spread and BraveStarr, J.B., Togg and Digger are trapped in the mine.

After helping to save BraveStarr from a Bat Eagle attack, the group manages to escape and Digger agrees to hire Togg as a worker for a year instead of sending him to jail.

not be the easiest way, but in the long run, it's the best. It's called: the honest way.
