of the Board why did you on June
10th. 1911, close and settle an estate
subject to a tax of from $400 to
.5500 without taking any steps to col
lect it? If you remember correctly
when you were asked by me why you
failed to collect the tax in this estate,
your answer was. ' I didn't think of
it'. If you deny this to be your ans
wer, will you not tell the people what
was your answer?
You further say that "some of the
estates from which inheritance tax is
electable are still in process of set
tlement". My report to the board is
based upon the estates closed and set
tied. Why mislead the public upon
the iimsy pretext or make-shift that
the tax mentioned in my report is due
fr';m unsettled estates?

Untimely Death Often Prevented
Countless mistakes have been made by medical men innocent vic
tims have paid the penalty for each. On the other hand, countless suc
cesses have resulted from expert diagnosis. To know the errors of those
who failed to know the metnoiisof those who won increase the chances
of successful treatment.
For many years, we have been closely connected with leading Spe
cialists of every school of practice. We have interchanged ideas, we
have been co-workers in all that concerns the art of healing. Besides
this mass of experience, we have the combined knowledge of each of our
own Specialists. They constitute our "Medical Advisory Board," and
deepseated or complicated cases are submitted to them. The result is
evident. It means better diagnosis, better treatment and less expense.
