EFFECTIVE COLD CURE.
Most Severe Cold or the Grippe Re
lieved In Several Hours.
Pape's Cold Compound Is the result
of three years' research at a cost o!
more than fifty thousand dollars, and
contains no quinine, which - we have
conclusively demonstrated is not effec
tive in the treatment of colds or grippe.
It is a positive fact that a dose ol
Pape's Cold Compound, taken ever?
two hours until three consecutive dosea
ere taken, will end the Grippe and
break up the most severe cold, either
in the head, chest, back, stomach, limbs
or any part of the body.
It promptly relieves the n ost miser
able neuralgia pains, headache, dull
ness, head and nose stuffed up. feverish
ness. Bneezing. sore throat, running' of
the nose, mucous catarrhal discharges,
eoreness. stiffness and rheumatic
Take this harmless Compound as
directed, with the knowledge that there
Is no other medicine, made anywhere
else In the world, which will cure yor
cold or end Grippe misery as promptly
and without any other assistance or
bad after-effects, as a 25 cent pack
age of Pape's Cold Compound, which
any druggist in the world can supply.
Provision for a claim adjuster to in- ;
vestigate the financial condition of all
the inmates of state hospitals and of
relatives bound by law to maintain
them, is made in a bill that H. C. '.
Bowman, chairman of the state board
of control, will present when the leg
islature convenes in January. It will I
be the duty of this claim adjuster, pro-
vided that the bill becomes a law, to
file proofs of claims in counties where
inmates are residents and to bring and ,
try civil suits, whenever necessary,
against estates and persons bound by
law to maintain such inmates.
About a year ago the supreme court:
held in the case of August Freitag
that the state could recover for his .
care and maintenance at the Topeka '
state hospital from the time of his j
admission until the time of his death, i
Prior to this decision the question
had been a mooted one. Now that the I
precedent has. been established, tne
board of control wants a claims ad
juster to carry on the work, as there
is no official to whom would fall the
duties of attending to collections.
Since the present board of control
took charge $166,077 has been col-
I 1( l Lt'U U.I1U pctlU LU LUC MrtLC ucttouici,
Bowman Talks of Board's Work.
Mr. Bowman in discussing the work
of the board, especially as regards col
"The recent decision of the supreme
court will make these collections much
easier and eventually the state will re
cover a large sum from those who are
able to pay without impoverishment,
and the taxpayers will be justly re
lieved of some of the cost of public
"A thorough system should be put
in in Kansas for the collection for the
care of inmates.
"The lunacy act of Ontario provides
that upon the admission of a patient
to the asylum his estate at once vests
in the Inspector of asylums. In this
way the inspector of asylums controls
all the estate and is in a position to
take from It the amount required to
maintain the patient in the asylum, if
the estate is sufficient. The inspector
also has two special agents whose duty
it is to travel from county to county
investigating any case that is in the
asylum. In this way Ontario has- been
able to secure a large amount of funds
and property which otherwise they
would be unable to secure. In the state
of New Tork patients are divided. Pri
two classes, public and private. Pri
vate patients pay anywhere from $6 to
$10 per week and public patients are
divided into two classes, those who pay
53.50 per week and are called 'reim
bursing,' and those who pay less than
that, down to nothing. The state com-
mission in lunacy appoints an agent
for one district or more, according to
the population and amount of work,
who visits all those, who do not pay
as much as $3.50 per week, if the cir
cumstances 'seem to make it worth
while to do so. In addition to this
agent, each hospital for the insane
has an attorney. When our board was
attending the National Conference of
Charities and Correction at Buffalo we
visited the Buffalo state hospital for
the insane. The attorney for that in
sane hospital receives $2,500 a year for
his services, but he only devotes what
. time is necessary to the business of
the Buffalo state hospital, the said
1 hospital being simply one of .his cli
ents. The agent who looks up the fin
ancial condition of the patients and
the relatives receives $1,200 a year and
"The California state commission in
lunacy appoints its attorney and pays
him $3,000 a year. His principal work
is enforcing payments of maintenance
from relatives that are able to pay but
who refuse or neglect to do so."
"Bill Bowman Will Introduce.
The bill Mr. Bowman will introduce
is as follows:
An act providing for claim adjuster for
the state board of control and defin
ine his duties.
le it enacted by the legislature of the
state of Kansas:
Section 1. The governor shall, upon
he passage of this act, appoint, by and
vith the advice and consent of the sen
ate, a claim adjuster for the state
board of control, for a term of four

shall be the duty of said claim adjuster
to investigate the financial condition of
all the inmates of the Topeka state
hospital, Osawatomie state hospital,
state hospital for epileptics, state home

home, and of relatives bound by law tJ
maintain them; and to prepare and file
proofs of claim in the counties in which
said Inmates are residents and repre
sent said institutions and the state . t

bring and try civil suits, whenever
necessary, -against estates or persons
bound by law to maintain said inmates

carry out the provisions of sections
4.850, 4.851, 8,459, 8,476, 8,479 and 8.553 if

room in connection with the office of
the state board of control and the as
sistance of one of the stenographers
of said board, aid attorney shall take

sureties; or he may give a bond with a
