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 twinges. 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, year 1909. Bowman Talks of Board's Work. Mr. Bowman in discussing the work of the board, especially as regards col lections, said: "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 care. "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 pxpenses. "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 j years, commencing July 1, 1911. It 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 for feeble-minded and state orphans" 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 the hearing of said claims, and to bring and try civil suits, whenever necessary, -against estates or persons bound by law to maintain said inmates with the advice and consent of the at torney general, in order to enforce and carry out the provisions of sections 4.850, 4.851, 8,459, 8,476, 8,479 and 8.553 if the general statutes of Kansas of 1909 Section 2. Said claim adjuster shail be an attorney at law and shall receive a salary of twenty-five hundred dollars per annum and necessary actual trav eling expenses, payable out of the moneys collected and paid into the state treasury for the care and main tenance of patients, and shall have a 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 the oath of office required by law of other state officers and before enter ing upon the discharge of the duties of his office shall give a bond in the sum of twenty-five thousand dollars to the state of Kansas for the faithful dis charge of his duties, which bond shall be signed by three or more individual sureties; or he may give a bond with a good and sufficient surety company au thorized to do and doing business m the state of Kansas, and the cost of said bond shall be paid by the state, which bond shall be approved by the governor and when so approved shall be filed in the office of the secretary of state. Section 3. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its pub lication in the official state paper. INVITED TO COME BACK. Secretary Payne of Kansas Day Club Writes to Original Members.
