CAPTAIN BILL McDONALD
THE FASTEST TONGUE IN TEXAS
â€œWhereâ€™s the other Rangers?
You got one riot, you get one Rangerâ€
Folks, of all the famous quotes made by Texas Rangers, here is the story of Captain Bill McDonald entitled â€œThe Fastest Tongue in Texasâ€ by Jim Andre. I am sure you heard the quote but did you know it was not made in the outlaw west but rather in the sophisticated city of Dallas, Texas when the Mayor had a riot on his hands and called for the Texas Rangers. A relieved Mayor was awaiting a contingency of Texas Rangers to meet him at the train station. Flabbergasted when one Ranger climbed down, the Mayor asked, â€œWhereâ€™s the other Rangersâ€ and Bill McDonald made the famous quote â€œYou got one riot, you get one Rangerâ€. Well, Captain Bill McDonald made many headlines that didnâ€™tâ€™ make the news as much but are still quotable as the time he sat â€œBatâ€ Masterson down. It was said he would have charged:
HELL WITH A BUCKET OF WATER.
Please read this. There were many a western story published â€“ the common ones about cowboy and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones about the lawman of the old west like this one are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out cause really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.
Hereâ€™s one of â€˜em.

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealerâ€™s shelf gathering dust. Because Old TEXAS RANGER History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell. This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no addition cost.

THE FASTEST TONGUE IN TEXAS
TEXAS RANGER MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING
While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. Itâ€™s a shame that our past is being lost. Itâ€™s as simple as that.
My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old, rare, complete western magazine of many years ago. The issue is in good condition, the cover is in vibrant color.
As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.
Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $4.50 to Canada, $4.75 Priority Mail, $11.00 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-Â¼ % sales tax. Thanks,
