We presume AshevUle has more comments
passed upon It than any other city in the
State. They say "Such elegant buildings,
such line houses, and such splendid food."
Hotels, boarding houses and private families
are often asked by their visitors "Where do
you get flour to make such elegant bread P"
"Why, at Cooper', where the best of every
thing can be had in the way of Groceries."
Our aim is to furnish the purest and best
goods for the least money, to wage bitter
war against all adulterations of food prod
u 'ts and never buy cheap groceries for the
purpose of selling below cost.
