J. L. Bachelor, a wealthy Boston man, is one who will testify that there is more truth than poetry In the above assertion. Last week Mr.. Bachelor, in com pany with W. M. , Burgess, Myron Learned, Frank Hamilton, Fred Hamilton and Fred Montmorency, five prominent Oinahan. went, out to Benkelman, Neb., to enjoy a few days of quail shooting. Mr, Bachelor had heard glorious tales of the excel lent quail shooting in the Corn husker state, so a private car was fitted out and the party started out. Qaatl Not Coaalderata.

He wanted a lok at the licenses. Five men were In aight. He was given a slant at five licenses. All seemed O. K. But Holmes la foxy. He had soma In slda Information. "Where's the sixth man of this party V he. demanded. No answer. Far be It from the Oma- liana a Hn.i r m atwlk ......

So the cruel. Holmes took Bachelor In charge, yanked him before a Justice at midnight, and the Justice proceeded to charge the Boston man SiiO.30 for shooting j live quail. The scale waa determined by astessments of I JO for hunting without a license, i for each quail plugged and 111.30 costs. This all happened last week, but didn't leak out until Holmes made a visit to Omaha and let slip the news..
