Elemental abundances are derived for three sharp-lined stars κ Cnc, HR 7245, and ξ Oct using REOSC echelle spectrograms obtained at CASLEO. Comparisons are made with published equivalent widths. The derived abundances for κ Cnc and ξ Oct are slightly larger than those obtained with other high dispersion spectrographs. HR 7245 exhibits a pattern of abundance anomalies similar to other Mercury-Manganese stars. The spectra of the two HgMn stars in the 4640-5100 region exhibit an interesting and useful variety of lines which can be used to supplement analyses of the photographic region.
