Oswald, three prominent business
men of Los Angeles, are here for
a vacation and a hunt for big game,
the killing of a bear being their
specialty. Last week they made a
trip to Clear Creek, seventy miles
southwest of Flagstaff. The trip
was a hard one for the professional
hunter, and was especially so for
the gentlemen from the Angel city.
After they had reached the hunt
ing grounds and while going down
into the canyon, one of their pack
animals made a mistcp and rolled
down thecanvon, as the animal car
ried the guns and ammunition of
the party, the latter was spilled
and the guns broken, when the
pack animal slid off down the steep
bank to the bottom of the canyon.
With broken guns on hunting
could be done and the party re
turned to Flagstaff reaching here
Saturday night, tired and greatly
disappointed over the failure to get
even a sight of a bear.
Antelope and deer were seen in
numbers, but it was out of season
for this game, but they enjoyed the
finest scenery and climate in the
Monday after their guns had
been repaired the party left for a
trip around the mountains north of
Flagstaff and they expect to have a
good time and to bring back a good
