Story Synopsis:
      Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin share hardships in this action-filled episode in which they foray north to exhibit orchids and get entangled in murder. Their car hits a tree, a "championship" bull chases them, and Archie goes to the hoosegow as a murder suspect. Archie stands guard over the bull while murder is committed in the pasture. Wolfe takes the case in what Archie calls an attempt to get a decent bed and chair. Lily Rowen makes her sultry first appearance.
