Referring to the address delivered
by Col. J. Buford Copeland at the com
mencement exercises of Hephzibah
High School, at Hephzibah, Ga., on
Tuesday last, the Augusta Chronicle
pays him the following compliment,
viz: “The address of J. B. Copeland,
Esq., of Valdosta, to the graduating
class was one of the best ever heard on
the platform here. Chaste in style,
elevated in thought, full of timely
counsel to those who were finishing
their course in the school, it was an
admirable address in every way. ‘If
you wish to go to college,’ he said, ‘go.
Where there is a will, there is a way.’
J In speaking of the essential conditions
of success, he emphasized honesty,
industry and the persuasion that what
one is doing is worth doing well.”

Some eight or nine years ago
we opened our doors to the New
nan public in a store-room 18x66
feet . We had only about $500 to
flit into business, but I elioved we
knew what the people wanted;
we knew we were capable of serv
ing them properly and promptly;
so we began. Since then our
every aim has been to give the
people their full money’s worth
to give them the best drug store
we are capable of conducting to
make the place attractive,
To-day we are occupying some
thing over 60,000 square feet of
floor space, operate our own elec

drug store in Coweta county.
We have always stood for prog
ress, and the pace we have set
has been hard to follow. New
nan now has the best drug stores
of any city of its size in the State.
We are largely responsible for it.
It is with a reasonable amount
of pride that we call attention to
During Chautauqua week we
