From ihc services rendered by the colored gen- tleman who was on the special car the party had to those rendered by the president of the Great Northern railroad, whose guests they were for a whole day, everything tended to make, the trip as pleasant as possible. They were treated royally all along; the line and all the way hack. The people of Great Falls are very nearly the limit ior hospitality. They seemed to think that there was noth- ing too much for them to. do for the i visitors from their neighboring citv. When the train arrived air their city. 'biter ten o'clock on Monday night.

Hill, was !the central ligxirc" of-a great-recep- jtion.' The best there was of -ac- quaintances and provisions was none i too -good for the arrivals. Guests.of Pres. Hill President Hill was on his way to Billings with a special train, on which he had as special guests about two hundred men from different parts of Montana and Washington, whom.; he 'was taking to swell the numbers at I the congress. In addition to these he .had given free transportation to twenty men from each county reach- ed by the G.N.R.. Although -his train very nearly up to the limit for" weight, out of the largeness of his i heart ire included the Lethbridge i crowd in the list of his guests and j tacked the car on behind. Before -sleep had been chased from the eyes !of 'the travellers the train was on its i way to Billings. As the two hundred odd miles were. covered, the men of Montana and those of Alberta mingled freely -to- j gether, and the men of the north i were fairly bewildered with the maze. of congressmen, senators and other I titled dignitaries known only to G-eo. i Hatch, who, having passed through the mill for several years and having known most of the men state helped out some, but when all I these were gathered in, there was 'still about for the town of Billings to carry. The whole amount and more was quickly raised. i The Illuminations i The city was most brilliantly il- laminated, thousands of electric bulbs being in strings and festoons on e'v- cry street in the city's business and main residential sections. The trees were dotted with lights, and here and there on the principal streets were electric arches of great beauty. Flags and bunting were in elaborate proftf- sion, although the outsider noticed the conspicuous absence of -every flag I but Old Glory., 1 of Billings j Billings is a city of about fifteen thousand people, but it was taxed to j the limit to accommodate the con- gress, and indeed would not have been j able to do so had com- panics not "parked" a large number i of sleepers there. But the people j opened up the whole city and the vis- itors were given the freedom of the city. When not attending the ses- I sions'of the congress or examining the exposition, the visitors took ad- Lvantage of, the .many facilities offered to see the sights city and dis- trict. Billings is the home of many j wealthy men .who have built beauti- ful homes. The sugar factory was in- i spected, the buffalo herd recently ar- rived, was also visited. The "church- es, the stores; the splendid Y.M.C.A. 'building, the fine Parmlev :Memorial.library, which the people are careful, to tell one is not a Car- negie library, all were seen and ad- mired. Well Entertained i For -the entertainment of the vis- s itors. the Montana Board of Control of the Congress, gave a banquet on the Tuesday evening. The ladies of Billings entertained at a grand re- jception and ball on Wednesday j while on Thursday evening, the new- ly elected officers gave a banquet in i honor of the- old officers and the j press. All of these functions were i most enjoyable. Again At Great Falls j The Lethbridge party was indeed j loath to leave the hospitable city on Friday morning, even to come home. But at Great Falls they got another reception that gave relief to anv such feelings. On the train with thn party was Mr. C. H. Campbell, the well known farmer and landman of Great Falls. He wired ahead that WE OWN ACRES along the new Weyburn line and south of Grassy Lake. NO BETTER LOCATION IN SOUTHERN ALBERTA. Being owners we can make low prices to you.

They were a good bunch of fellows, however, and soon were so much mixed up that it was next to impossible: to tell Canuck from Yan- kee. The Country The country traversed did not ap- peal particularly to the men of Southern although sonic parts, like the Judith Basin and the Valley of the Yellowstone near Bill- ings, "looked almost as good as the land north'of the boundary, line...Here j and-there crops were seen, and there was an occasional elevator, hut the country as a whole is practically un- Near Billings were' seen hundreds and thousands of tons -of sugar boots grown for the factory at that city. The people there have _ a scheme for operating their land for the-culture of sugar beets that makes I it profitable for all parties concerned, j The'labor is imported and the land I let out by contract to these import- cd laborers, principally Russians from other states. The result is that while the factory is not much, if any, larg- er than that at Raymond, the out- put is five or six- times as great, the output being about thirty million annually. The Billings Spirit One cannot get into Billings with- out becoming a booster. The "Bill- ings spirit" which apparently has be- come universally, recognised all over states, strikes one immediately. Every man, .woman and child in the city is heart and soul for Billings. It is recorded that a grouchcr from an eastern state came to Billings, am? the constant optimism got; on" his nerves EO badly that he went.out. in i search of some one more congenial. I but though he searched as diligenilv as Diogenes wi'.h his lamp, not a one could he find. Tl is a o?

With the aid" of Supt. McGarry and several other guides the party were shown through that wonderful plant which takes the copper and iron out of !three thousand tons of ore every iday, employing about fourteen hun- do it. The plant is of nd vet even great as it 1 is it is to be .greatly extended. The 'great smokestack recently completed THE Fen Sscority CD.

Off to the Falls The Lethbridge bunch broke -all rec- ords by getting up at six o'clock the. next morning in order to accept' the invitation of Mr. Campbell' and oth- ers to take an auto -drive down to the falls, the -giant springs and I around the city. The springs are about four miles of the city along the banks of the Missouri River, and !are most wonderful. Gushing up in several places are springs that in the i total have measured five hundred cu- jbic feet 'per second. The water is !clear as crystal, though very hard.; From there the party went to the i Rainbow Falls to see the new dam being erected which will give thirty- live thousand horse-power at low wa- ter. The power will be used at the. Butte mines, at Great Falls, and for distribution all over the state. Great Falls City there is immense power developed, while a few miles farther down at the Great Falls there i is still greater power remaining to be i developed. In the city the most remarkable i feature is the splendid park system. are several beautiful parks in i various parts of the city, and all are i perfectly cared for. Walks and drivc- i ways find their way through the irre- guku maze of elms, cottonwoods i maples. Here and there arc lakes and 'pools, while at- .ir.other place provi- ;sion is made for a large fountain. .The streets arc 'lined with trees, i while the boulevards are verv fine all over the city. The people are now working on a long drive that .will surround the city and give a splendid view of the river. Part of the drive- way has already been constructed. From a municipal standpoint Great Falls is a most interesting and in- structive city. The people arc proud of their city, and justlv so. The whole trip was splendidly ar- ranged, and for this the credit is due. to G. M. Hatch and F. W. Downer, who practically had charge of all the arrangements after J. W. McNicol left for the scene of the exposition. A Bargain 4 Residential Lots on Coutts Street, Duff, Addition i' Price jjlOOQ t 4. Half cash, balance in I I sx m onths i J. I.
