THE CITIZEN, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1913.
Christina I A 1
" FEW people realize what a great, big and important town Lake Ariel Has be-
come. As you approach it from any direction you are impressed with the
fact that here by a Wayne county lakeside has grown a town of homes and
of industry. As you make a closer inspection of the place you are surprised
still further at the character of the business enterprises and the substantial
nature of the, business houses. Several of them are of concrete and would
do credit to any city in the land. Ariel used to be a Summer resort town,
but it long ago passed that stage of existence, and to-day is making a growth
on all lines that is .truly remarkable.

in Meats, Fruits, Vegetables, Feed

tell you something of what they are
doing, as well as hint at what they
have done in tho past. Their busi
ness was begun several years ago,
and it was strictly along the line of
fresh meats. Wayne county stock
was purchased from the farmers,
who soon learned that at "the Lake"
they could get ready cash for what
they had to sell and that the pur
chaser would buy what they had for
sale right at their doors. This made

When Christmas time comes round it seams
As though the long, long years
Roll back and take away our cares
And dry up all our tears;

The great day comes along
I get to feelin' young again.
And kind of turn to song,
And whistle and go on Just like
A boy would. I'll be bound, '
The old world seems to 'brighten up
When Christmas timecomes round.
I'm tickled at the Jumpln' Jack
And all them kind of things;
I like to watch the toys that play
By wlndln' up the springs,
And somehow don't know why it l3
Love seems to fill the air.
And I forget I've enemies
Or. troubles anywhere:
And "every little while I sort
Of listen for the sound
Of voices that have long been still,
When Christmas time comes round.

And had a magic sleigh,
To visit all the children who
Look forward to the day
The orphans and the cripples and
The poor folks everywheres
All children that are good and kind
And don't forget their prayers;
I'll bet you that they'd all be glad
When they got up and found
Their stockln's fairly bustln'out,
When Christmas time come round.
Oh, happy time of Jlnglln' bells
And hills all white with snow;
Oh, Joyful day that takes us back
To care-free long ago
1 wonder if up there above ,
Where happy arigels roam
They do not get to thlnkln' of
The happy times at home,
And turn, In fancy, back once mora
To listen to the sound
Of voices that have long been still,

the Ariel dealers in fresh meat very
popular, and it led to an ever widen
ing business along other lines than
those of fresh meats,
One day not long ago along came a
fire that did a lot of damage to Ariel
property. It burned up the building
of Samson & Cook. It couldn't burn
up their business, nor could it burn
up their enterprise and enthusiasm.
They made this fire the opportunity
for a great step forward in their busi
ness and in the affairs of Lake Ariel.
They had ideas of their own about 1
store buildings, and they decided to
put up a structure that would be a
realization of their dreams, onq that
would be amply large to accommo
date their over-increasing business.
Out on Maple avenue, nearly op
posite the church, they selected a
beautiful site, and on it they built a
large structure. It is built of ce
ment, has the effect of dressed stone,
is modern and beautiful in architec
ture, and is two stories in height,
with a basement under the entire
able consideration. Deed dated De
