Using CASLEO echelle spectrograms, elemental abundances are derived for the sharp-lined non-magnetic CP stars HR 4487, 14 Hya, and 3 Cen A. The first two stars are members of the Mercury-Manganese subgroup and have abundances which are similar to other such peculiar stars. The third is a hotter related star. The detection of Mn II lines in its spectrum adds to this relationship.
