The company has just platted 400 acres south of the railroad track, which is offered at 880 per acre. This covers the territory in part immediately south of the townsite and includes the lower half of section 11. A number of sales have already been consummated in thia new tract. One of the pleasing features wbich the excursionist observes ou bis arrivai at Beaumont is the long list of improvements made and - being f made. More than a dozen cottages and bungalows' are in process of construction. J. N. Long bas awarded the contract for a $4300 house just at the north eud of the townsite. Plans are being drawn for a cold storage plant.
