Lexington, North Carolina 

Pro Bono Publico 

PREFACE 



We take pleasure in submitting Vol. II of the Lexington, N. C, Direc- 
tory. While no directory is free from errors, we feel sure the Lexing- 
ton Directory will rank above the average city directory and will give 
general satisfaction. Experienced help only has been used in collecting 
the data for this directory, and if there are any omissions of names it 
is not due to the tact that the ground was not fully covered by our 
canvassers, for a house-to-house canvass was made. It often occurs 
that a person, in giving the information for the directory, overlooks or 
forgets to give names of persons that should be listed, and in such 
cases it is not the fault of the publisher that some names are left out. 
As a rule these omissions are few. Of course, the printers have to 
make a few typographical errors — they would not be printers if they 
did not — but as a whole we know that the Lexington Directory can be 
relied upon, and will be found by all who use it to be a very valuable 
book of information, and one which no up-to-date business man can 
afford to be without. | 

We desire to thank our patrons for their liberal support, by which 
this publication was made possible. We also desire to extend our 
thanks to our many friends and the public in general for the courteous 
way in which they supplied us with the proper data. It is a pleasure 
for us to publish a directory in a city where the people 'are interested 
and where they are willing to co-operate with us and lend their aid 
in the making up of a work of this character, as was the case in 
Lexington.' This of itself is good evidence that Lexington is a good, 
live, up-to-date city, and a good place in which to live. 

We shall continue this publication, and promise you efficient service

The Science of Chiropractic can truly be named the "Master Key" 
that unlocks the door to Health. Pure Chiropractic is no longer an 
untried theory. It has been tried and weighed in the balances and found 
to be full weight, i. e., one hundred percent. 

If you are anxious to enjoy health and wish to know what "Chiro- 
practic" will do for you, try it.

212 LEXINGTON, N. C. [1925-1926] CITY DIRECTORY 

ADVERTISING 



is what nothing was ever sold without. If a loaf of bread is 
sold to a tramp who managed to glom onto a jitney, it had 
been advertised by the tramp's hunger and by somebody who 
told the boy where the bakery was. Or by the window of the 
bakery itself. There's isn't a human being who doesn't 
believe in advertising. If he really doesn't, he had better 
commit suicide. And that will give him a lot of publicity 
that nobody can cash in on. 

The man who claims not to believe in advertising is a — well, 
you know what Ananias was. This boob is too anxious for 
everybody to tell other people that his place is a good one to 
trade. But ain't willing to give the advertiser anything for 
telling the other folks. He is, to use a modern term, a 
something-for-nothing tightwad. The man who puts on good 
clothes advertises his own respectability, and expects results 
in the shape of the respect of others. The man who dresses 
poorly because of necessity or purposely, advertises his poverty 
and expects results in other people's help or contempt. The 
doctor claims it is unethical to advertise, but he wants the 
newspapers to mention every time he has a case. The same 
is true of a lawyer. In fact, every honest person wants the 
right kind of advertising. Only dishonest persons are afraid 
of it, and they get it anyway.
