2/29/1924 Hashknife and the Phantom Riders

February 29, 1924.  W.C. Tuttle wrote more than 1,000 stories, plus some novels.  Most of them were westerns.

His most popular character was Hashknife Harley, cowboy and amateur detective.  Accompanied by his friend and sometimes narrator, Sleepy Stevens, he wandered the west ropin' cattle and solvin' crimes.

The Leap Day 1924 edition of Adventure Magazine featured "Hashknife and the Phantom Riders," about which I know nothing.
