At Cherokee Lodge.

Between Camp Aradosia, [sic (Arodasi); now Camp Forestcraft] where the Andersons are staying, and the Morton Camp [Pine Brook], is located Cherokee Lodge, the property of W. H. Jackson of New York. One of the merriest parties inhabiting the lake camps this season is to be found here. Among others there now are Miss Jackson and her sister, Mrs. W. E. Woodford, besides Mrs. F. R. Bremner, Miss Knox and Pendalton Duffy. Mr. Woodford and Mr. Jackson will arrive this week, and expect to remain during the greater part of the summer. An additional cottage was built at this ramp this season to accommodate the friends of the Jacksons, and two naphtha launches are constantly in commission. These little boats, known as the Cherokee and Gilpin Bay, are among the speediest on the lake.
