How He Began

Under the above heading, the Rome News is publishing a series of biographical sketches of successful business men, and last week had the following to say of a former esteemed citizen of Cedartown.
"Beginning on a salary of $10 a month, but with determenation to work hard and save one-half of what he made, H. H. Arrington began his career as bottle-washer in the drug store of Hogue & Hine, at Rockmart. During the intervale of washing bottles he studied prescription filling, and two years later went to the T. P. Burbank Drug Company at Cedartown as prescription clerk.
"During all this time Mr. Arrington had faithfully stuck to his policy of hard work and also to that of saving half his earnings, with the results that, nine years after he started, he was able to open a drug store in Summerville.
He was successful in this business, and in 1897 entered the Curry-Arrington Company, of Rome, as secretary of the wholesale and retail drug and seed store. In 1910, when D. W. Curry retired, he was elected president of the company, which office he still holds."
