POST CARD STORIETTES TWO GUN Lover by Oren Arnold Roughest toughest two-gun gent in all the history of the West was Roy Bean, self-appointed judge and desperado killer who founded and bossed a town named Vinegaroon. He was too bashful ever to look at a woman, but one day he found a magazine cover picturing beautiful Lily Langtry, famous actress. Roy fell deeply in love. He enshrined her picture over the bar of his saloon, and shot a man who made a smutty remark about it. He wrote Lily a love letter every day for three years. He changed the name of his town to Langtry, in her honor. He went to New York, sat six nights in a theater to watch her act but never made his presence known. Back home he wrote some more, and pined, and pined. Time marched on. One day a train stopped in Langtry. From a special car came a passenger who asked for Roy Bean. "Why miss," the station agent said, "Roy died only last week." "Oh-h-h-h!" cried the passenger, in sudden tears. "I did so want to meet the man who wrote such sweet letters and named his town for me." Dramatic TRUE Stories from the GREAT WEST No. 14
