He wishes he never left the train and suddenly finds himself back there. Leaving the train again he finds his way back to the well where a stone tells him that wishes cost a nickel. He wishes for a million dollars and uses this to buy up the well and surrounding land. Officials visit and want to know the source of his wealth. He makes a wish to escape but the nickel is fake and he is arrested.
