    It is said he wrote a series of rules or the cottage of which are:
      “Wigwam Rules.”

      Rule I—Our Guests: The country is considered DRY, but many things you will find WET, if you snook around. The Lake for instance—and there are many, many springs about; in fact, so many that if you become thirsty in the night, you’ll even find springs in the beds.

      Rule VII—Special: The squaws who accompany their Indians are requested not to use the curling irons except during stormy weather, as electric current is only supplied at this time.

      Rule VIII—Fire: In case of fire, you will please give the alarm by wringing the towel.

      Rule X—Fishing: There are some unusual fish in these waters; in fact, they are educated and very particular about making new acquaintances, but they occasionally answer a call and to any who desire to “tackle” them, Ike Walton fishing bait and accessories will be supplied.

      By Order of BIG CHIEF and MINNIE-Ha-Ha. The POW WOW begins the eighth day of the eighth month of the year 1913


1922 - A. M. Glossbrenner [Alfred Morton Glossbrenner]
    Catey Rasmussen: “Then, too, The Glossbrenner Family bought "The Wigwam" [even tho an early cottage on the south side was also named the Wigwam or Pottamomii and owned by Daniel Mc Donald] about 1905, developed the golf course, and printed a small history of The Maxinkuckee Association which includes Indian Legends. My Grandmother Glossbrenner had Indian rugs and pictures in their cottage. How we wept, my three sisters - even my brother, when that cottage was sold about 1936 at Grandfather A.M. Glossbrenner's death.”
