Dallas, Texas, Aug. io.—On Satur
day, September 30th, the gates of the
great State Fair of Texas will be thrown
open for the twentieth annual entertain
ment, and the city of Dallas, which is
now conducting the big show, will wel-
come the people of the Southwest to
participate in a round of sixteen days
snd nights of pleasure. An army of
mechanics, artisans and laborers is at
work on the buildings and grounds.
The great stone auditorium and ex-
position buildiDg is about completed,
and the electricians are wiring the
structure for a brilliancy of illumination
equal to the illumination of the World’s
Fair buildings at St. Louis. The large
statutes received from St. Louis are
being placed on the buildings and
about the grounds. The work of lay-
ing the' cement promenades around
the buildings and of extending the
cement railway track to three times its
former length is progressing nicely.
Work on several of the more elab-
orate amusements and displays is well
under way. The caroussel, the figure
eight, the river of Venice and the to-
boggan will be ready early in Septem
ber. The bulk of the material for the
farm and mill display has been collec-
ted. This will be the most complete
and most artistically arranged exhibit
of the kind ever made in the country
A section of Exposition Hall has
been assigned to an art display of ole
and modern masterpieces, consisting
of the best selections from the galle-
ries of the art centers of the Northen
and Eatsern cities. It will be equal to
the finest ait display ever made any-
There are now more than two hun-
dred and fifty race horses on the
grounds in .raining for the coming
races, and the number will reach six
hundred head by opening day.
The first day ol the fair, Saturday,
September 30th, has been designatec
Dedication Day, as the magnificent
new aditorium and exposition building
will be dedicated on that occasion
The fair will be formally opened by
Governor Lanham, who is the first
honorary vice president. President C.
A. Keating, ot the fair Association,
and Hon,Bryan T. Barry, Mayor of the
city of Dallas, will respond. The Dal-
las Commercial Club, in connection
with the various civic, fraternal act
industrial organizations, will have
charge of the ceremonies. The gov-
ernor will be greeted by a chorus of
two hundred children voices and a mixed
chorus of one hundred voices, accom
panied by Seymour’s Military Band of
fifty members. The selections will be
patriotic airs. All of the honorary
vice-presidents are expected to be
The first day is also set apart as
Press Day, it being the desire of the
city of Dallas to have the editors pres-
ent on the opening day of the first en-
tertainment of this institution given
under the auspices of the city. The
municipality has put about $300,000
in this entertainment, and it is particu-
larly anxious for the editors to see it
with their own eyes.
The several organizations of travel-
ing men have united to have a day at
the fair. Of course everybody knows
what the^drummers can do in the way
I of rustling up a crowd. They will
probably select the second Saturday,
October 7th, to snow the ground under
I with their avalanche of fnends.

P. Rubush, carpenter, living at
715 North Commerce street,
Gainesville, Texas, says:
“No man who has found the
benefit I have found through the
use of a special medicine should
hesitate to say so, and this is the
reason why I have been recom-
mending Doan’s Kidney Pills for
about three years. I got this
remedy first at the H. W. Stark
Drug Co.’s store in 1902. I was
all crippled up at that time with
pain in the back, a sharp achiDg
which was so severe at night
that often I could not sleep or
turn over in bed. The kidney
secretions were also too frequent
I do npt think 1 am saying to
much when I say that Doan’s
Kidney Pills saved me, for an-
other year of such suffering
would have been more than I
could endure. Doan’s Kidney
Pills brought me prompt relief
from these troubles and finally a
cure, which has been complete

J. T. Miller, 433 Dixon st.,
Dear Sir: Replying to yours
of 26th, I beg to assure you that
prohibition has no part or parcel
in the agitation now going on in
reference to the abolition of our
city corporation. I think that the
results of prohibition for the last
three years . in Tvler and Smith
county, have been so satisfac-
tory that the antis have given up
all hope of carrying the town
and county against it so long as
present conditions prevail.
