Paris Gibton, ex-senator for Mon

at Great Falls, Montana, a city of

ful parks, floe 'trees, elegant lawns
with flowers and other objects pleas
ant to the eye of the visitor," said a
recent visitor. "The ' wisdom of
Paris Gibson, the father of tbe oity,
in advocating beautiful parks is very
evident now. It wonld do your heart
good to stroll through tbe elegant
park along the river bank. An artifi
cial lake has been built in the park
and adds to its beauty. The place is
orowded every evening with people
and they oertainly enjoy the exper
ience. I also enjoyed a trip through
the parked section of the north side
where wonders have been wrought in
the way of beautifying the streets.
Great Falls takes the palm for being
the park city of Montana. Oregon
