Schoolteacher Boles changes careers. As C. E. Bolton he banked his loot in San Francisco. Thirty odd robberies, never of passengers, only express boxes, carefully planned, using a shotgun he never fired (some believe was not even loaded), wearing a linen duster, masked with a flour sack. He would put the loot in the sack, and leave a poem in the empty express box. His undoing came when a hunter heard him pounding on the box; the driver took the hunter's gun, and fired. Bart dropped a cuff. A detective traced it to Bart's laundy, and he was arrested, did six years. Some say he became a farmer.
