MEDICAL NIMRODS FINE HUNTING TRIP Dr. Frank P. Thompson of Chicago has just returned from a ten weeks hunting trip, which proved successful, the doctor having the proud honor of killing a mountain sheep, three bears and a bull moose, besides other game. The doctor and his wife left Chicago August 8 for Edmonton, Alberta, and from there took a gasoline launch to Fort Vermilion, three hundred miles farther north. They then went by trail into the McLeod River country, four hundred miles north of Banff, where the mountain sheep was killed. It was while making the river trip that the doctor shot the bears. Although the trip took ten weeks, part of it was devoted to sight-seeing on the Pacific Coast, and tho doctor states a ulmrod can go to Canada, bag a mountain sheep and return to Chicago inside of three weeks.
