Children's Home Society of Kansas.—This organization is very similar to the Children's Aid Society. The National Children's Home Society was chartered on May 23, 1885, at Chicago, and the Kansas branch was chartered March 20, 1894, at Topeka, with J. T. Clark, president; Jesse Shaw, vice-president; S. S. Ott, secretary; Dr. J. E. Minney, treasurer; and Rev. O. S. Morrow, state superintendent. The aim of the society is to place orphan children in homes where they are adopted or by contract and indenture. In addition to the general board there are local boards in different towns and cities. After the children are placed in a home, they are looked after by supervisors, who see that they have proper care. Some 1,300 children have been placed in good homes by the society, which is chiefly maintained by private donations, though the state has at times contributed to its support, notably in 1893, when the legislature appropriated $1,800 to aid the society's work, and in 1897, an appropriation of $1,400 was made for a like purpose.
