The Strange Signs at Saddle Rock!

Synopsis

Riding through Saddle Rock, Wyoming is confused to find every business establishment is named after him, since he has never been there before. He's told that the townspeople use his name as a deterrent to outlaws, who would see his name and keep riding on through. But Wyoming notices that the signs are all freshly painted, and discovers it's all a ruse to disguise that outlaws already run the town and the townspeople are prisoners.
