; he never sleeps, in a business way,
I and his success has been plienom
He began his career in Barnes
villi* as a clerk in the store of \V.
R. Murphey & Cos. In 1890 he
opened business for himself with
comparatively no capital. But
he knew how to hustle and his
success was immediate and his
business has made progress every
day since Hint time. On Febuary
I, 1895 the firm merged into the
J. 0. Collier Cos. and has since
continued under this name with
Mr. Collier as president, and the
controlling spirit of the Imsiness.
In 189s Mr. Collier built the
Oxford Knitting Mills and has
been equally as successful in the
managament of this manufactur
ing enterprise. This mill makes
a high grade of knit underwear
and lias more orders than it can
possibly fill. Employment, is giv
ing a large number of people and
the mill is not only profitable to
tho stockholders but it is worth
much to the community.
There is nearly SIOO,OOO invest-j
ed in the Collier Cos. and the Ox- j
ford Knitting Mills and the busi
ness is conducted on such a sys
tematic basis that the capital is j
turned over about five times a year, j
Mr. Collier has large farming
interests at Piedmont, in this |
county, and also considerable real j

Ho is vet a young man, being?
only about thirty-four years old
and In 1 has some important addi
tional plans for the future. For
the immediate future, however,
Mr. Collier says his company is
ready to meet all the demands
that may be made upon them by
the trading public of Middle Geor
gia. He visits New York and other
large cities of the East two or
three times a year and keeps
thoroughly posted on styles, prices
and goods of every kind and his
stores are therefore up-to-date in

cures diseases of lungs, heart, liver, and
