At the picnic celebrating Becky Thatcher's birthday, several of the boys and girls enter McDougal's  Cave. Tom and Becky wander away from the others in search of privacy and become hopelessly  lost. Meanwhile, Huck Finn, who is watching to discover Injun Joe's hideout, follows the two men toward  Cardiff Hill, the home of the Widow Douglas and of a Welshman named Jones. Hiding behind a  bush, he overhears Injun Joe telling of his intentions to mutilate the Widow Douglas because her  husband, the judge, had once had him publicly horsewhipped. Huck hastens to inform Mr. Jones of  the plot, and the Welshman and his sons drive off the vicious Injun Joe and his cohort. Huck has  been so frightened that he becomes seriously ill, and the Widow Douglas comes to the Welshman's  home and nurses the homeless boy back to health. At the same time, it is discovered that Tom and Becky are missing; they have not been seen since
