Synopsis for "The Mystery Of Ghost Town!"
Aloysius Kare rides into a ghost town where he finds its lone resident, Tumbleweed Hawkins, firing his guns off ranting about ghosts that are after him. Spotting Kare, Tumbleweed fires at the roving cowboy thinking that he is a ghost as well. Deciding to investigate further, Kare rides off and changes into his alter-ego the Apache Kid and uses his Native American tracking skills to stealthily sneak back into the town undetected. Searching around the town, the Apache Kid happens upon three outlaws who are seeking a map that leads to the location where Tumbleweed struck oil years earlier, using the old man's superstitions as a distraction to search. They have only the Last Chance saloon to search, but so far Tumbleweed has protected it heavily. The leader of the outlaws plots a three pronged attack to try and get inside the saloon and recover the map, unaware that the Apache Kid has been listening in on their entire plan.
The Apache Kid easily dispatched two of the outlaws unnoticed and fights it out with the third when suddenly Tumbleweed spots him. Thinking that the Apache Kid is a ghost, Hawkins is about to shoot him when suddenly the Kid's horse Nightwind comes up from behind and throws Tumbleweed on his back and begins bucking. It is not until Tumbleweed acknowledges that the Apache Kid is not a ghost does the warrior command his horse to stop. The Kid then ties up the three outlaws and takes them back into town for justice with Tumbleweed thanking the Kid for his assistance.

Synopsis for "Law of the Totem!"
Aloysius Kare is at the local army fort visiting his friend Captain Bill Gregory, when they spot an army of Apache warriors coming with their sacred totem and ready for war. Kare tells Bill to let him handle it and rides off, changing into the Apache Kid. The Kid approached Red Horse the leader of the war party who tells the Apache Kid that his father Red Hawk has fallen ill and the totems have changed into faces of anger demanding that war is fought against the soldiers as well as their rivals the Coho Native Americans in order to appease their gods. Unable to shirk his tribes laws, the Apache Kid reluctantly joins their side but secretly begins to try and consider a way to stop any bloodshed.
The Apache Kid races off to warn Bill and the other soldiers about the impending Apache attack on the Cohos. As the soldiers mount to prevent a conflict, a gang of outlaws notice that the fort has been left mostly deserted and decide to raid it for weapons and ammunition. Meanwhile, before the Apaches can attack the Cohos, the Apache Kid hears shots at the fort and realizes that its under attack. When he cannot convince the Apaches to help him, he goads them into attacking him instead and leads them on a chase. Realizing that they did not hear the shots, the Apache Kid quickly changes into his alter-ego of Aloysius Kare and directs the Apaches to the fort. When they arrive they realize that the Apache Kid was right go to attack the outlaws raiding the fort.
Aloysius Kare then sneaks into the fort while the crooks are distracted and easily defeats them in a fist fight and beats them all. He then takes their leader, quickly changing back into the Apache Kid and turns him over to Red Horse, telling his friend that the gods have been appeased. Seeing that the faces on the totem have changed, Red Horse agrees and the Apaches cease all hostilities.
