Synopsis for "The Silver Spurs"Edit
While riding along the Mexican side of the Rio Grande, Kid Colt spots a gang of five men on horseback chasing after a lone rider and decides to come to the man's aid. Catching up as to the man being chased, he tells the Kid that he will be safe as soon as he crosses over into the United States. Kid Colt turns around and faces off the pursuers, gunning down some and forcing the others to flee back into Mexico.
Catching back up with the man being chased, the Kid sees that he has been wounded in the chase and has dismounted his horse. The dying man introduces himself as Gabriel Velasquez. He tells Kid Colt to take a pair of silver spurs out of his saddle bag. He explains that they are very important to the future of Mexico. He tells the Kid not to give them to anyone except for one who says the password "que hay de nuevo". As the man dies, Kid Colt promises to get the spurs to the right people.
Not knowing how to track down the person who is intended to collect the spurs, Kid Colt decides to ride into the nearest town wearing them deciding that anyone who would be interested in collecting the spurs would see him wearing them. Sure enough, when he arrives in the town of Chillicotte, Marshall Marlow and some of his Mexican goons notice what they call as the Spurs of Toltec when Kid Colt rides into town. They then prepare to confront Kid Colt.
When the Kid enters the local saloon, one of the men accuses Kid Colt of killing his "son" and stealing the spurs and the Marshall moves in to apprehend him. Kid Colt recognizes the Mexicans as the men he drove off earlier and refuses to be taken. Kid Colt then draws and fires, killing some of the men and giving him enough cover to escape. He rides his horse Steel out to safety and that night he camps out. However the Marshall and his men track Kid Colt down and ambush him. Although Kid Colt is able to defend himself, the Marshall and his forces are too many for him to deal with. However, before they can kill the Kid, a band of Mexican rides arrive and gun down the Marshall and his men. One of the rides tells Kid Colt the password. When the Kid hands over the spurs he asks what is so important about them. The rider tells him that the spurs show the location of Treasure of Toltec and that the men seeking to steal the spurs intended to use the treasure to finance a revolt. In thanks for his assistance, Kid Colt is invited back to the government palace in Guadalajara to recover from his wounds.
