Synopsis
Hearing a weird cry, the Deacon and Mickey exit their home and go out into the marshland, discovering a fatally wounded man who warns them of the "demons of death". Spotting several figures looking like devils, they soon spot those figures robbing a bank of their gold. Deacon puts a false ad in the personal column to draw them out into the open so they can be dealt with, and soon discovers the band of villains are members of the Centreville Bank's Board of Directors, wanting to embezzle the bank's funds.
