Top Beaumont OH Field. For the sake of economy this plant is being constructed Jointly by tne Success Oil Company and the
Silver Dime Oil Company. Heavy lines show the Improvements under way and which are being pushed to completion as rapidly
as possible. The plant consists of pipe lines connecting four wells, with storage and settl ng tanks, which are connected with load
ing racks on two lines of railroads, one on the Kansas City Southern and another on the Sabine nnd East Texas (Southern Pacific
sj stem). The pipe lines are laid so connections can be made with the pipe line of the National Pipe Line Company to Port Arthur
and the pipe line to Sabine Pass. Thus thia plant can load oil in cars or steamships at will. On Block H, Gladys Subdivision, Spin
dle Top, consisting of ten acres, are located six storage tanks, settling tank, pumping station, office and other Improvements neces
sary to make the plant complete in every detail. There Is no company in the field that is equipped with as complete a plant, and
