Hoss rescues a small man being threatened by a bear. When the bear is gone, the man disappears and leaves behind a strongbox of gold. He takes it home and is laughed at by his family. That night, the gold is stolen and Ben Hoss report it. When the townsfolk hear about it, Hoss regrets mentioning it. Until a small Irish man comes to Hoss' defense. Eventually the Ponderosa is overrun with men looking for gold and leprechauns.
