Lumberton, Dec. 15.?Harry ?
Davis, one of the most popular
tobacconists in the game, has just
closed a deal that brings him to
Lumberton next year where he
will operate the Liberty Warehouse,
one of the larger warehouses
on this market. On the
Fairmont market for a number of
years, Mr. Davis needs no introduction
to the people of Lumberton,
or to the tobacco growers
throughout the territory the
Lumberton market draws tobacco
from. In fact, he is widely
known in practically every tobacco
growing section of North
Carolina, South Carolina and
Virginia. A warehouseman for a
number of years he has made an
enviable record for himself.
The Lumberton market is fortunate
in securing a tobacconist
of Mr. Davis' type. He is the
type warehouseman that can be
termed a market builder; alert,
wideawake, progressive, and with
a genial personality, he enjoys
the friendship and confidence of
the people who sell tobacco with
him, and these people follow hini
where ever he goes. It isn't so
much the market that attracts
the tobacco grower as it is HaN
ry Davis himself. To say that he I
will make the Liberty Warehouse
one of the leading auction houses
in Lumberton is a true statement
rather than a prediction.
At present Mr. Davis is on the
Winston-Salem market where he
is one of the proprietors of the
