Activity at Redondo
The Mullen tract, embracing 100 at

chased by Cleveland & True of Los
Angeles. The purchasers, through
the agency of Housler & Creller of Re
dondo, are contracting to erect homes
of any size to suit buyers. Many of
the lots have been bought and a num
ber of new dwellings are in course of
erection, the improvement affording
lucrative employment for many citi
zens of the delightful coast town.
While the newcomers are making ar
rangements for permanent homes the
business interests of Redondo are
spreading out. Business property
generally is being Improved and plans
for new buildings are projected. Re

sold to Carl Ransdell of Long Beach.
He will Improve the property and
make It one of the best places of en

Herbert & Butterworth report the

These are one acre lots and the sell-
Ing prioe $300 each. Many colonists
from the east who have been here but
a few weeks are buying In this tract,
presumably for the reason that large
suburban lots are looked upon with
much favor In eastern cities. The
colonists are anxious to get Into their
new homes and are preparing to build

There will be two approved curtains,
one of steel and one of asbestos, while
the roof of the stage will be of a thin
quality of glass with a screen directly
under it. In case of a flre the stage
will become a chimney and the heat, if
the flre g-eta beyond control, will servo
the purpose of a chimney, the flames
melting the thin glass of the roof and
the screen preventing the glass from
falling upon the stage. Besides these
precautions automatic and mechanical
pprinklers will be available' to instantly
drown out any Incipient fire that may
occur on the stage.
The interior of this splendid theater
will be finished In rococo style, which
prevailed in the early part of the slx'
tcenth century. The ornate French
fffects of the Interior will border
closely on the Italian and thore will
be an entire absence of everything that
might be termed classic. The general
color scheme will be blue and gold.
