1948 - 1882 James Gang Exploits Retold

Lawton, OK - It was in The Lawton Constitution, Lawton, Oklahoma, dated 19 May 1948, Wednesday, page 7, we found this headline: "1882 Magazine Tells of James Gang Exploits." Full account was chronicled in old paper with the editor's note: "In an effort to refresh the memory of readers not he numerous escapades credited to the James gang, The Constitution reprints the following story taken verbatim from the September, 1882, issue of "The Police Gazette," shortly after Jesse James was purportedly killed."

Under the caption of one of the photos entitled, "Dirty Coward" is an artist's conception how Robert Ford shot Jesse James while the latter was hinging a picture. The picture was copied from an 1882 issue of the Police Gazette. As it turns out that it was Charley Bigelow who was killed instead of Jesse James.

Roy: Just returned from Crete, the Greek island that is the Southernmost point in Europe. We rented a car, and the gas (97 octane) was as much as ?1.056. Converted to gallons, that's ?4.01 per gallon, or $5.34. Think what that would do to the resale value of a Hummer.
