Four or five years ago one of the handsomest summer resorts in Iowa was at Twin Lakes, in Calhoun county, where the pleasure seekers were found by the hundreds during the summer months. So popular did these lakes become that a company was organized and u very large hotel erected which cost in the neighborhood of $10,000 or $12,000. There was also erected a boat house and a toboggan slide and thousands of trees planted. Now the lakes have dried up so that the little water left is three quarters of a mile from the hotel, and the Pocahontas Record says a squatter has planted the intervening ground to corn. He has no claim to the land but neither has the hotel company, and an interesting law suit is on. _____ Multlng a Sure Thine of It.
