Synopsis
First line: "Oh, dear! That was such an exiting story! I hated to have it end!"

Indexer Notes

Could this be a possible work by Pete Alvarado? It looks very much like the Gene Autry story in Western Roundup #1, which is credited to Alvarado by Robert W. Phillips, but also credited to John Ushler by Hames Ware.
