Paris Township has an area of 29,280 acres of land, most of which is prairie and all of which is fine farming land. The City of Paris occupies 1,500 acres of the area of the township. The farms are well improved in every way; the highways are mostly of gravel and kept in good condition, no better place to live the life of a farmer. (The City of Paris is described at length in separate chapter.)

The present town officers of Paris Township (1904) are as follows:

TOWN OFFICERS. Fred Baber, Supervisor; John Lamb, Assessor; George W. Patton, Collector; A. Frank Long, H. H. Howell, George A. Vandyke, George F. Howard and John W. Doak, Justices of the Peace; A. W. Owens, Da vid A. Hopkins, R. B. Calvin, James H. Boyd, and J. O. Sidenstricker, Constables; A. L. Beard, Robert McCubbins and Thomas A. Huls, Commissioners of Highways.
