State Officers Think Stationery Firms
Are In a Combine.
On Saturday the state will let the
contracts for ail the stationery sup
plies to be used at the state house dur
ing the coming year, and a strong ef
fort is being made to "bust" the sta
tionery combine which it is claimed
has ben operating to the disadvant
age of the state for some years past.
' The state ha3 sent its stationery
specifications not only to Topeka deal
ers, but todealers in Wichita, Kansas
City, St. Louis, Chicago, and other
places. It is thought that by having
bids from so many outside sources,
there will be some real competition
for the state's business. One bid has
been received from Wichita up to the
present time, and the state officers are
expecting others before Saturday.
It has also been decided by the ex
ecutive council to buy all the supplies
in bulk this year, and keep the sup
plies on hand in the office of the sec
retary of state. This involves the
establishment of a good sized sta
tionery department in the office of the
secretary of state for there is a vast
quantity of stationery supplies con
sumed at the state house in the course
of the year.
Last year the state tried to beat the
alleged "etmbine" by appointing the
secretary of state as purchasing agent.
Whenever the state officers wanted any
supplies they notified the secretary, and
he would go on the market and buy
wherever he could get the best prices.
This system did not pan out very well.
The expense for supplies was so heavy
that the ways and means committee of
the legislature, which had some of the
bills to pay, were inclined to rise up
and demand the establishment of a
vigilance committee. They believed that
the state was getting ine worsi or it.
So, as the rystem of a puich-ssing agent
v.as entirely unlawful, and was only
adopted for the' purpose of edging out
of the grip of the alleged 'combine,"
thn council decided to return to tne
strict method of purchase provided by
of the aaffering and danger in atore for her, roba the exoectant mother
of all pleasant anticipations of the coming event, and casta over her a
shadow of gloom which cannot be ahaken off. Thousands of women
have found that the use of Mother' Friend during pregnancy roba
confinemeut of all pain and danger, and insures safety to life of mother
and child. This scientific liniment is a god-send to all women at tho
time of their most critical trial. Not only does Mother's Friend
carry women safely through the perils of child-birth, but its use
gently prepares the system for the coming event, prevents "morning
sickness." and other dis-
containing valuable information free.

obliged to let the contract at home.
This was the reason for adopting
the plan of buying in bulk, which w ill
be used during the coming year. Each
state officer has made an estimate of
what he will need for the year, and
the state will buy supplies enough for
the whole year and have the supplies
delivered at once into the custody of
the secretary.
