We are always glad to furnish you with plans and esti-
mates, and give you the benefit of our professional service in
your work at prices that are consistent and fair.

We expect also to keep in stock in Asheville a full line
of ornamental shrubbery of the highest class, and will,
during the planting season, meet every demand for such
stock, and so systematically arrange its planting, that
beauty and similarity will crown all material combinations.

Our aim is not only to produce effects that will sustain
our reputation, and give ample scope to the exercise of our
talents, but to order every movement that our professional
skill will be entirely subordinated to the greater demands
of the home-maker.

»| out making adequate municipal improvements; without such it will *£ E=

$ never be looked upon as being any good, or having any future; but *:* =5:

% simply will be called dead or a has-been. In business circles, the City ^ E=

% Directory is just as important to the health and vigor of a business, »♦« :

% whatever line it may be, as municipal improvements are to the health A =

* and vigor of a town; they both go hand in hand; they both mean * ss

* progress; for they both stand for f ==
t EFFICIENCY I =
% which fact is being more vividly demonstrated every day; for there are % s-j
% ten towns today with modern improvements where there was only one T 5EE

* a decade ago; there are thousands of City Directories in use now where *£ ESS

It is, therefore, with pleasure that we present Volume XVII, the
first war edition of the Asheville City Directory.

♦ is only of recent years that the business world has awakened fully to *
