Ghost Hole Bandits by Oren Arnold For a month the sheriff and posse had guarded the entrance to this great mountain cavern, shooting at it ever few minutes. Three known train robbers were trapped inside. "We'll starve them out," said the sheriff, "if it takes a year." But a cowboy rode by and drawled, "Sheriff, I seen them bandits in town last week!" Furious, the sheriff led his posse in with drawn guns. Nobody was there. He built a fire deep in the cave and, sure enough, telltale smoke revealed a hidden exit on the other side of the mountain. Detectives finally trailed the bandits, killed two and sent the third to prison. After serving 28 years he was released. He came back to the Ghost Hole cave. A new detective, hoping to locate the stolen money, followed him in. But once more the bandit used the secret exit and was never seen again! He had dug up a buried leather bag and gotten away with $28,000! DRAMATIC TRUE STORIES FROM THE Great West No. 13
