Prominent Susanville Men Get Sage Hens and Arrested All In A Day
August 7th, 1924

Five prominent business and professional men of Susanville returned yesterday with 38 sage hens and one escort. Said escort being a game warden from a neighboring county, who informed the downhearted sportsmen that they had conquered 18 more birds than the law allowed.

Tom Blight, Bert Bristol, Dr. George Martin, Al Breitweiser, Jr., and W. G. Culbreth were the victims who were hauled in Judge Younie’s court where they pleaded guilty and a joint fine of $150 was assessed on the quintet.

Sage chicken is valued at this rate at $3.95 each and no chicken on sight as the game was turned over to the county hospital after confiscation.
