The Caller is requested to say that the Bay View Cemetery association is now prepared to sell burial lots in the new cemetery west of this city, the association having had four acres of its land fronting on Nueces bay, cleared, plowed, _________________________ and platted.  For particulars, apply to the president of the association, Mrs. Griffin, who has a plat of the ground and who will be pleased to answer questions of all parties wishing to buy a lot in the new cemetery.  Blank deeds are being printed for the association, which expects to shell its walks and drives the next improvement it makes.
