When her pa settled down, no wonder all the cowboys came courting. "Miss Lil," said the first suitor, "I thought I'd just bring you this little present." His lariat rope held a valuable calf, and on its side he had burned LIL. That tribute so pleased the lady that all the other cowboys began branding stock LIL for her, vying with each other. Reward each time was a red- lipped smile and sometimes a kiss. And, to round out our true romance, did she then choose one of the suitors for her wedding day? (OVER) 4B.H391 1.

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, hop- ing 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! POST CARD STORIETTES DRAMATIC TRUE STORIES For treat WEN FROM THE 4B.H387 © L. S.Co. No. 13
