an, Rule 22 enumerates the
looks which the Superintendent
$ bound to keep and lay on the

table of the Board at each
monthly meeting. Among the
bonks so specified are "Order
Books with count' rf.ils One
of these ras pi duced ta us by
the Supei nit- luh nt, and the fol-
lowing extract from his evident, e
shows the narrow limits within
which its use has been restrict
ed:
Question: With regard t'>
outers given locally here for
ponds, do j on keep any copy or
duplicate of that order on re
c rd?
Answer: No, we do not.
Question; What check then,
have you upon a man when he
subsequent!) sends in his bills
' at the end of the month?
Answer: Well, we usually
[know what we have ordered.
Question: Suppose you order
ths poods and do not pet the
bills for three or four months
later, can you can j in y c u 1
mind all that time what you
go) from him?
Answer: Yes, I carry it in my
mind, because I know I have to
bring it on charge, thai is, if it
is groceries.
I 1 'ion: Do you not, in the
, ase of local orders, keep nn or
(lti book- ivith counterfoils?
Answei: I hat would be out
of the question We may want
a thing at once, ami we always
telephone foi whal we require.
We keep a requisition book,
principally for supplies of shoes
and caps to the attendants
They are entitled to a cap and
a paif of shoes every six months
A man comes in and says that
he is entitled to a pair of shoes
and a cap, and by looking at ..
the book we can see when he [ beds for Females upstairs, and
"ast pot these articles, and; thev pa) either SS. or .is. a da)
sent signed by myself and
countersigned by him.
The Order Hook with counter
foils shown to us by the Supei
inti ndent is the one aboVS re-
ferred to by I.....as a requisition
book. Examination ol it dis-
closed that it had in some feNv
instances been used as an order
book lor local purchases, and
we see no reason why it should
not be so used in every casa of
an order given locally for poods;
even where poods required at
once are ordered by telephone,
the order should be entered in
the Older Book-and the verbal
order subsequently confirmed
b) Bending down the written
order by messenger. The count
erfoil would then remain as a
check upon the amounts in the
trader's bill, when subsequently

Paying Patients,
32. A new ward affording in-
creased and improvedaccomod*
ation for paying patients has
been recently added to the Alcx-
andia Hospital, and in it arc
accommodated those patients
who are prepared to pay at the
rate ol 10s. (h\ a day. The sub
joined extract from the evident <
of the Matron shoivs how the
paying patients are classified
Question: Is theie more than
one class of paying patients?
Answer: Yes, they are really
divided into three classes.
There are the paying patient's
who occupy the repular paying
patients quarters and paj
10s. 6d. a "day, and then there
are those who are put in what
is called the Centre Ward;
theie are six beds in this Ward
for Males downstairs, and two
whether he is entitled to them
when he again asks for them
In case of ordering from the
town if t h ' merchant wants
requisition we forward him one,
and in the case of the Dispen
ser'i wanting drugs from th e
town a requisition is always
I am not really sure ol tl
charges, but I think those are
the rates; and lastly there are
the patients who are put in the
general Ward as paying pal
ien's and screened,off,and given
privacy and slightly better food.
I think they pay about js. a day.
There has beyond all
been c< if-iderable lax
rendering accounts to
[collet ting fees due from 1 1
path nts. On the nth 1
