"These are but some of the many attractions
which have been procured, which, added
to the grand display of the educational interests,
the soil and manufactured products, the
mineral, ore, coal and timber resources of the
Empire State; and these, combined with the
immense stock shows, from the Northwest as
well as from Texas, will furnish a pleasant
day of education, entertainment and diversion

INVITATION TO HENRY W. GRADY, ESQ.
"In answer to the call of the directors of
the fair in The News a few days ago, quite
a number of the young men of Dallas met
at the Merchants' Exchange to arrange to cooperate
with the directors of the Texas State
Fair and Dallas Exposition in celebrating
Texas day of the programme of entertainment
to be present in October. They decided
to invite Henry W. Grady, of Atlanta, Georgia,
a distinguished young orator to deliver
an address upon the development of the South
with special reference to Texas. This evening
the invitation from the young men, accompanied
by one from the directors, will be
forwarded. Charles Fred. Tucker, Esq., who
was a college mate of Mr. Grady, will -be
asked to write a personal letter urging acceptance.
" The invitation gotten up by the young inen
is very beautiful. It was arranged by Mr.
J. C. Patton, chairman of the committee,
and the pen engraving was designed by Prof.
D. A. Griffitts. At the top of the first page
are the words To the Hon. Henry W.
Grady, Atlanta, Georgia,--elegantly written
below which and in the center is a neat star
worked as if finely lithographed, and across
the face is written 'Invitation.' At the
bottom are the words 'From the young men
of Dallas, Texas.' The invitation on the
second page is superbly written. Tllen
come the names of the young men. There are
nine leaves in all, and bound together at the
top with red, white and blue ribbons, tied in
lovely bows with ends hanging entirely over
the front page. The following are the names
