Assure Superb Program.
Dallas, Texas. — With the grand
free attractions which the man-
agement of the State Fair of Texas
has secured for the twenty-fifth an-
nual meeting, which begins at Dallas,
October 15 , the sixteen days of the ex-
position promise to be one round or
pleasure. Amusements will be of the
clean and wholesome kind and the
very best obtainable in America.
President E. J. Kiest and Secretary
Sydney Smith paid particular attention
this year to what they describe as pure
amusement features. Visitors to the
Fair not only come TO improve them-
selves by an Inspection of the exhibits,
but to be entertained. Hence the "De-
partment of Mirth" is one which re-
ceives a great deal of attention.
Free attractions of a splendid sort
have been secured. These attractions
will be seen in Amusement Park, at
the Auditorium, at the race track, and,
in fact, in nearly every section of the
ground. Thaviu's concert band, of fif-
ty trained musicians and instrumental
soloist's, heads the list of musical fea-
tures. The Thaviu band is one of the
most complete concert organizations in
America. It has been trained and drill-
ed until It is perfect. The main band
concert will, of course, be given in
the Auditorium. Several other bands
have been secured, however, and con-
certs will be given at the race track,
at the livestock department and in
Gillett's Monkey Circus.
Fred Gillett's Monkey Circus is the
delleht of American audiences. Mr
Gilletti was here last year, but his
show lo be seen in the Auditorium this
fall Is entirely different. In fact, he
has different monkeys, for those ho
had last year are now enjoying a well-
earned rest. The monkey circus Is
what the name implies. It is one con-
tinuous ,laugh front beginning to end.
The whole family is here. Papa Mon-
key calmly smokes his pipe, while his
better half washes the clothes. There
is a sudden uproar, and then the fun
begins. Gilletti's pets do acrobatic
stunts, ride bicycles, waltz, two-step,
etc., eat with knife and fork, and, in
fact, do everything but talk: and they
come mightly near doing that.
Russian music is exceedingly popu-
lar; so is the dancing of the land of
the czar. A troupe of Russian dancers
and singers has been secured for the
auditorium program. Tills is declared
to be the finest troupe of the kind In
the United States. In their Russian
folk songs and spirited dancing they
promise to feature the daily program.
Following the Russians, come the
Tyrolean singers and dancers. Anyone
who has heard the beautiful songs of
Tyrol will appreciate whtat a treat is
in store for State Fair patrons. There
are ten of these singers and dancers—
five men and five women. Dressed in
the native Tyrolean garb these artists
are already assured a large share of
the commendation which will lie .show
ered upon the management this year
for its Auditorium program.
The foregoing are but a few of the
free attractions that have ber>n secured
for the Auditorium program. Several
operatic singers of note have been
secured. These singers, whose names
are withheld from publication fos the
present, will be brought to Dallas by
Bandmaster Thaviu. The management
Is in position to assure, however, that
their work will be commended every
where in words of the highest praise

The Dallas News of October 12-th
announced the death of Gen. W. H.
King, of Sulphur Springs. In the
death of General King there passed
to "that undiscovered bourne" one of
the most gallant spirits that served
cn either side In the great conflict
between the States in the late ^var ¡
The Eighteenth Texas Infantry was
organized in the spring of 1862 with
W. B. Ochiltree as colonel, D. B. Cul-
berson as lieutenant colonel and W.
II. King as major. Early in J 863 Col-
onel Ochiltree resigned. Lieutenant
Colonel Culberson was promoted to
the rank of colonel and Major King
was made lleuteaant colonel. Soon
after that Ci^jíl Culberson was
elected to the Confederate Congress,
and W. H. King became colonel if
the regiment, which nosition he held
until ihe bailie of Mansfield, La., Ap-
ril 8th, 1864. He was n conspicuous
figure during that eventful day, gal-
lantly leading his splendid regiment
in Ihe thickest of the fray, until late
in the evening, when a minie ball
disabled him. He was unable to re-
turn lo duty for several months, and
before he could do so, the story of
his brave deeds had reached the an
thoritieri at Richmond, and he was
promoted to the rank of brigadier
general. A brigade was formed ami
he was placed in command. Knowing
the valor and good discipline of the
Eighteenth Texas, he earnestly sol-
icited that this gailant regiment of
veteran soldiers be attached to his
brigade, which was accordingly done.
The brigade having been formed in
the early part of 1865, so near the
close of the war, it had no further
opportunities to display its fighting
qualities or >f giving its gallant com-
mander the chance of becoming fur-
ther renowned. General King was i
great disciplinarian and a splendid
drill officer. At the time he was ma.-
jor of Eighteenth, the Eighth Texas
Infantry commanded by Colonel O.
Young had for Its Major Raines,
who wa3 killed at the Battle of
Pleasant Hill, La., ihe day following
that of the Battle of Mansfield. King
ind Raines were warm personal
friends, and both were brave und gai
lant officers, and each ambitious, thai,
his regiment, be well drilled, with the
result |hat the Eighth ,, id Eighteenth
were the best drilled regiments in
Walker's division, which so far as
the writer knows, ,vas the only dlvi
slon <n the Confederate armies com-
posed alone of Texann.
I was Intimately acquainted with
General King from August, 1862, to
the close of the war, and I know he
possessed all the qualities that go
to make up a valiant soldier, and a
fearless and able commander. His
splendid physique, handsome coun-
tenance and piercing eyes will linger
long on memory's page—the picture
of the ideal chieftain. A tear to hi¿-<
memlor^ and peace to his ashes,
"How sleep the brave who sink to
With all his country's wishes blest:
When spring with dewy fingers cold,
Returns to deck his hallowed mould,
She there shall dress a sweeter sol,
Than fancy's feet have ever trod:
By fairy hands his knell ¡8 rung
By for mis unseen his dirge is sung:
There honor comes a pilgrim gray.
To bless the turf thai wraps his clay,
And freedom shall awhile repair
To dwell a weeping hermit there."
