Dated at Voluntown, Oonn., this 4th
Jay of March, A. D. 1916.
New York, March 10. The Mexican
situation loomed on the financial hor
izon today, more than neutralizing the
feeling of quiet confidence created by
the recent turn of affairs across the
water. News that the government had
decided to send a punitive force into
Mexican territory caused a marked halt
In the strength and activity of the
forenoon. Quotations of important
stocks shaded one to two points from
their best, 'but shares of companies
having interests across the southern
border, notably Southern Pacific, Mexi
can Petroleum and American Smelting,
rose smartly.
Conspicuous among the strong fea
tures of the first half of the session
were Butte and Superior and American
Zinc at the new high records of 99 and
89, respectively. Butte sold minus its
regular and "extra" dividends of 10- 3-4
per cent. Coppers in general were
higher.
Industrials and equipments which
figure prominently among the muni
tions scored gains of two to four
points, the chief feature of that group
being Crucible and Lackawanna Steels,
American and Baldwin Locomotives,
Pressed Steel Car and American Steel
Foundrq. Among semi-war descrip
tions, such as Mercantile Marine pre
ferred, Motors, Continental Can and
Cuban-American Sugar, gains ranged
from two to five points.
United States Steel yielded active
leadership to Crucible Steel and Amer
ican Locomotive and failed to make
more than slight response to the Feb
ruary statement of unfilled tonnage.
This disclosed an increase of almost
650,000 tons and brought the aggregate
of unfilled orders up to the unprece
dented total of about 8,569,000 tons.
Bethlehem Steel was more than ordi
narily active, opening off 3 at 481
rising to 495, and closing at 486. Total
sales of stocks aggregated 615,000
shares.
Firmness prevailed on the exchange
market, remittances to Germany ruling
well above low records registered yes
terday. There was little actual busi
ness, however, even sterling bills being
in slight demand. The international
list was steadier than .recently, a con
dition attributed to reports that our
bankers were co-operatin gwith British
financiers in the concentration of
American securities.
Bonds developed an irregular tone,
chiefly as a result of renewed heavy
offerings of Anglo-French fives, which
were offered in large individual totals
at 94, a marked recession from the re
cent maximum. Total sales, par value,
aggregated $2,735,000.
United States bonds were unchanged
on call.

Efforts to prevent individuals from
developing mental disease may posel
bly be considered as vague and of
doubtful value, or even unnecessary.
The powers of resistance of an indi
vidual (mind against undue strain
cannot be accurately estimated, but
the same reasoning would apply to
preventive work in physical disease.
We cannot say that a certain member
of a family would of necessity devel
op typhoid fever If exposed to infec
tion, but that does not stop us from
establishing proper precautlone con
cerning the water and milk supply of
the household. While the general
problem may seem intangible, it is
! not difficult to see the mental danger
! to a young girl in monotonous factory
. work for ten hours daily, based on
scanty or ill-chosen food, and unre
lieved by the prospect of social pleas
ure and relaxation. One trained to
observe can see the perils threatening
the overburdened worker who turns
home to face the care of an invalid
and who finally from mental exhaus
tion gets distorted ideas of the neigh
bor's interest in her. The man whose
father died insane is haunted by fears
of interited weakness, and if not ad
vised and reassured may soon bring
on himself the fate ha dreads. The
woman who remembers the depres
sion which two years ago clouded her
reason needs to be helped through
periods of despondency if ehe is to re
main sane.
Needed In Family.
Preventive measures are also defin
itely needed in a family where one
member has already developed men
tal disease. The sane hereditary pre
disposition to nervousness may be the
heritage of all the members alike, and
the precautions? of a hygienic planning
of tha daily life and a smoothing of
difficulties of adjustment in family or
social relations will do much to pre
vent a second case of insanity. Bad
mental habits of suspicion, sulki-
ness, brooding, excitability, or out
bursts of passion, are Just so many
danger signals, which indicate trou
ble ahead. We 'have learned that a
habit of stooping makes the lungs
liable to disease; we know that con
tinued breathing of Impure air pre
disposes to illness: we believe that
too rapid eating imnairs digestion. We
must alto learn that unhealthy habits
of tho" can produce even more ser
ious results in our mental condition.
Advisory work should not be limited
to families already afflicted. Special
care and though tfulness in. bringing
up a nervous child will do much to cor
rect tendencies whlcttv unchecked oft
en deepen into a definite disease.
There are hundreds of such cases In
the community, and the problem is to
reach them while the need is still pre
vention and not cure.
What Society Is Doing.
The Connecticut Society for Men
tal Hygiene is endeavoring to apply
the principles of prevention by deal
ing with the conditions indicated
above. Individuals who have reason
to fear mental disease seek us out, or
are sent to us by doctors, clergymen,
visiting nurses, settlement workers,
teachers, probation officers, and
judges. Sometimes it Is too late for
prevention, but suitable treatment, if
arranged for promptly, may effect a
cure. The extreme importance of
early treatment cannot be too strong
ly emphasized. Many of these peo
ple ask to atend the Mental Hygiene
Clinic established by the Society at
the New Haven Dispensary. The ad
vice of a specialist free of charge is
a great boon to people of limited or
scanty Income. Such clinics should
be accessible in all the larger centers
of the state and would prove in Con
necticut, as they are proving in
Massachusetts and New York, to be a
powerful agency in the prevention of
insanity.
Not only may serious disease be
prevented by ouch means, but a com
prehension of the early smyptoms fol
lowed toy prompt action may not only
save the patient out also prevent a
tragedy. Such was the case of a
young Italian woman reported by the
Matron of a Day Nursery. Upon
investigation the social worker of the
society found a very respectable
household wtth a grandmother.
hard-working husband, four children,
and the mother who showed many
symptoms of acute insanity- On ex
amination of the woman at the Men
tal Hygiene Clinic the specialist ertated
that her condition rnipht lead her to
attack her children at any moment.
and that ehe should have Immediate
hospital care. The necessary legal
steps were hastened, she was prompt
ly sent to a state hospital, her younir
baby was placed under the care of
the Infant welfare Society, and all
matters relating to the patients fu
ture cai were casefully and satis
factorily explained to the huaband.
Preventive Work.
'rrevei'-tive wotk may rescue a pa
tient on oae Dorder-llne of insanity.
This was the condition of an attrac
tive young Jewish Tirtrl of sixteen, who.
from overwork and an unhygienic
mode of living, became flaunted by
evil thoughts, depressed,' and suicidal.
The family physician asked ' to have
her supervised ' by the social worker
of the society. By fmeani tof fre
quent talks, by arrangement of her
worn, Dy provision for suitable recre
ation and companionship, she has
become . cheerful. 'healthy, and appar
ently normal. -Her family are de
lighted with the change in her condi
tion. In telllgcnt supervision of a conva
lescent may prevent a relapse. An
alienist referred to the care of the
society a woman who had been acutely
insane some months before. She
showed signs of a recurrence and im
mediate help was needed. She was
dopresed, secluslve, introspective,
despairing, unable to sleep or to en
dure eoclal Intercourse. Suitable
light employment was found, encour
aging advice was frequently given,
and her dally problems were discussed
and solved. Within three monthe she
was sleeping well and had gained in
weight, and now after a year ehe is
cheerful, sociable, and enjoys keep
ing house and caring for a family;
A mentally sick person may be
saved from an undeserved Jail sen
tence by a comprehension of his con
dition. An elderly man had hallucina
tions which csused him to act strange
ly on the street and this had brought
about his arrest several times on a
charge of drunkenness or vagrancy.
An intelligent friend came to the so
ciety to b eadvlsed how to protect
him. A mental examination of the old
man, followed by an explanatory lslt
of the social worker to the city at
torney, resulted in having the man
sent to a state hospital for treat
ment Instead of to Jail as a criminal.
Experience proves that many delinqu
ents are in reality cases for hospital
care.
Educating the Public.
The broadest form of preventive
work is education of the public as to
tne preventable causes of mental dis
ease. Especially desirable is the dis
semination of the facts concerning the
important part played by alcohol and
specific disease In causing insanity.
Towards this end the society arranges
for public lectures on different phases
of the subject, and distributes wtn
phlets written by recognized authori
ties. Informal talks are given before
various clubs. Boy' clubs have been
taught the effects of alcohol and drug
habits on mental efficiency, possibly
leading later to mental disease:
Mothers' clubs have been told of the
special care and training desirable for
children predisposed to nervousness:
Girls' clubs have been taught the need
or hygienic living and proper recrea
tlon, and the necessity for demand
lng a hlgti moral standard In future
husbands: social and educational
clubs have been informed regarding
tne oroaa aspects 01 a mental cam
pal en in the community.
Whether the problem is approached
as affecting the community or the
inaiviauni me watenword Is alwavs
rrevenuon.
"We are starting; the training sea
son," says Connie Mack, "with a num
ber of youngsters vrho I believe will
develop into great pitchers. How long
it will take to accompllshe this I can
not say. Nevertheless. I am sure at
least a couple of them are 'comers'
and one of the surprises this season is
likely to be the work of pitchers who
have not been in a big league before.
BACK TO THE LAND
8CHEME IN GREAT BRITAJN
England Has Heretofore Produced
Toe Littlo of Her Food Supplies.
London. Mar. 10. (Correspodnence
of The Associated Press) Tne back
to the land scheme, of which a fore
cast has teen given out by the board
of agriculture, recalls one of the bit
terest political controversies of the
days before the war. When Lloyd
Ueorge then proposed to tax the un
used land, such as game preserves
and ornamental parks, the same as
the tilled, to revalue the great hold
ings and tax the unearend increment.
he aroused not only the opposition
but the bitter hatred of the landed
classes. His measure did in fact
strike at the basis of the aristocratic
system, which under the old regime
had got off comparatively light as re
gards taxes. Lloyd George's measure
was formed with a view to making
tne holding or unused land for pleas
ure or speculation so expensive that
sub-dtvislon and sale would result
and the number of small landowners
be vastly increased in proportion as
the great estates dwindled. But now
even a stronger measure Is proposed.
It provides for the acquisition of land
by state compulsory purchase for cut
ting up Into small farms. Yet now
scarcely a protest is heard.
Such a reform is one of the by-pro
ducts of the war. It is seen that Ene
land has heretofore produced too lit
tle of her foods. Also work must be
provided for discharged soldiers whose
Ideas and ambitions have expanded.
otherwise they will emigrate to the
states or the colonies. So, to keep
England going after the war. the
landlords must sacrifice a part of
their historic holdings, and tbey con
sent to tne sacrifice.
War has taught the English people
their absolute dependence on foreign
countries for their food supplies. One
or ner providers Is lltle Denmark.
l et the reason why Denmark, so
small in area, with its own largo pop
ulation to support, can ship out so
much food lies In the fact that Den
mark years ago passed Just such a
law as England contemplates now.
From a country of few landlords.
Denmark became a country of small
independent farmers. Strangers from
Europe aa well aa from America, never
go through English country without
being Impressed by the relatively
small amount In cultivation. Eng
land seems to be cut up mostly into
fine old pasture parks with thick turf
and stately trees with the rest In
green pastures. Of its home-produced
foods, perhaps mutton leads the list.
with beef next. Denmark sends cured
pork and butter, Holland butter and
cheese, France fruits, early vegeta
bles, and berries, Spain oranges. South
Africa and Australia fruits out of
season and Canada and America those
in season. Cold storage meats are
brought from the United States. Aus
tralia and the Argentine, grain from
the same countries and Russia. But
the great estates have produced most
cf the world's famous breeds of stock,
and their parka are a source of pride
even to the people who feel the eco
nomic lnji'stioe that results.
Lloyd Georgea data collected for
his own land scheme has been of Im
