This week, I ran across Dick Fellows, the stagecoach bandit with all the horse trouble.

This was so funny I couldn't resist chasing down the tale. Here it is. Prepare to laugh.

"the Bakersfield sheriff: the scoundrel had taken $500 of the stagecoach money as a bribe, and still not helped George to escape. What was the world coming to?" smiley - snork

I didn't quite understand the Further Adventures section:

"Undaunted, George stole another lawman's gun and escaped again.

If only the horse he stole hadn't been eating 'locoweed'3. It does no good to threaten a stoned horse with a pistol. The horse won the fight,"

Do you say when George first stole a lawman's gun?

He escaped on foot and later stole the horse? Why was there a fight?

smiley - ok

That must be confusing. smiley - laugh It wasn't another gun that he stole, but a gun from another lawman. I will go and sort that out. smiley - run
