This Company Owns in Fee Simple, reeand,c"10f aI1 cncum:
1 J brance, 4,561 acres of oil
lands in the famous oil fields of Southern Texas, and every purchaser of stock owns
his proportionate interest in these lands. These lands are located in Jefferson, Hardin
and Liberty counties, and include two tracts in the Beaumont field. Of the later,
one tiact is situated 6,300 feet northeast oi tlie Lucas gusher and 5,500 feet northeast
of the Beatty, the other about 2,500 feet northwest of the same wells; thus both are
in the heart of the richest oil fields in this country, and in fact in the world. The
third tract lies just west of the weli-known Sour Lake and Saratoga districts, and in
fact directly adjoining the latter. The Sour 1-ake district is believed to be the next
in line to bring in gushers, perhaps more remarkable even than those at Beaumont.
Strong surface indications of oil have been known toJTexans for over fifty years, the
seepages being exceptionally strong on and about this company's tract, and shallow
wells have in past years been sunk with good results. The oil obtained is of exactly
the same character as the Beaumont product, and there is abundant reason for belief
that at the Beaumont deptiis oil will be found in equal quantity as well as quality.
For tlie purpose of actively developing the above properties tlie company offers
lor public subscription
per share, subject, however, to advance or w ithdrawal without notice, in the discre
tion of the directors. Operations will be begun immediately, and contracts are
now being made with drillers to sink wells as soon as rigs can be placed on the
lands, which will undoubtedly be within thirty days at the most.
THE TITLE TO THESE LANDS is derived from the original Spanish grant of
September 16, 1835, and the chain of title is perfect to date. Abstract is on file at
the company's offices, where it may be seen by any one desiring to further inv esti.
gate this point. The secure possession of nn assured title to these valuable lands
makes this company one of the safest investments before the public today, and tlie
increasing market value of its properties makes it more substantial every day. As
.111 instance of their increase, two lots of only one acre each, within a short distance
ot" this company's holdings, vvvro sold on April 23 for $20,000 per acre, though
the seller hail bought them less than two weeks earlier for only $5,000, and another
single acre, worth three months ago perhaps SS20, was sold a few days since for
THE CAPITALIZATION of the company is extremely low as compared witli iti
resouices; the dividends earned will be proportionately large, and as it will unques
tionably piove one of the richest pajers in this enormously rich field, every man
interested in the most piosperous industry of modern times should secure shares
in tlie Beaumont & Hast Teas Oil Company.
