What We Have Done, With Your Help 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 put into business, hut believed 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 teet of lloor space, operate our own elec tric light plant, our own machin ery for manufacturing ice cream, etc., and are paying taxes on more property than any other 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 these facts. We thank you for the patron age which has made this possible. HOLT » CATES CO. NEWNAN, GA. r Mr. R. P. Davis, two miles east of the city, has fifty acres in cotton that is the wonder and admiration of all who have seen it. The cotton is now knee-high, arid with one more plowing will be ready to "lay by.” “Bud’s” neighbors, who have been struggling with rain and grass arid town cotton- choppers for more than a month, are puzzled to know how he did it. The more envious among them declare that he got ahead by working at night, and some have been mean enough to insin uate that he didn’t even stop for Sun day. Louis Beil, white, about 25 years of age, was arrested Saturday on a war rant sworn out by R. I.. Callahan, of East Newnan, charging Bel! with crim inal assault upon the person of Nannie Lee Callahan, the 18-year-old daughter of the prosecutor. The alleged offense was committed on the night of May 30, while the young woman was out driving with Bell beyond the eastern suburbs of the city. The arrest was made by Bailiff Burn Glass, at Raymond, and Bell was brought to Newnan and lodged in jail. The commitment trial will probably take place next week.
