Clark County News July 1908
H.M. Root and E. Bruley were at Hatfield on Sunday. Three weeks ago, they were there and one of the pleasant events of the day was the bountiful supper with which they were served. At that time, they advised the land- lady that 25 cents was not enough for such a fine meal and it seems as though she took their advice. On Sunday, they each paid 50 cents for a piece of cold meat and a cup of coffee. But the reason for this is that Lake Arbutus is now a summer resort and the mecca of the Sunday excursionists. Last Sunday, about 400 visitors were there from Winona. Hart's launch, named the "Summer Girl," is ready to carry passengers on Lake Arbutus. The boat's landing place is just below the Dells Dam Bridge. On the bank nearby, there is a good place to hitch and feed the horses while you are boating.
