Bathers Lose Lives in Hudson i Hiver With Mny Unnts Around Them. SIXDAY'S DEATH TOLL Two Hoys Disappear NVIiile Wadinp; Several Other I'd tali lies. Two brothers who went swimming yesterday afternoon In the Hudson Itlver off Inwood were drowned In the Night of many persons and In the midst of a number of small craft whose occu pants made no attempt to help them. They were Harry l.ubowltz. 13 ycarB old, and William Luhowltz. 19 years old, both of 1706 Washington avenue. William was not a strong swimmer and when he had ventured out about fifty feet he began to shout for help. Harry went to his aid nnd tried to draw him to the shore, but the exertion proved too much for him and tho two men were soon clasped together, strug gling nnd crying for help. Within fifteen feet of them were two canoes, each containing two men, who gazed helplessly at the drowning men and made no attempt to reach them Men on tho hanks run up und down shouting or stood and watched. Not a rope nor a plank was found to throw them, and while all were hesitating the brothers went down. Their bodies were recovered. Alfred nnd William Jaciues went for an outing yesterday to Manhattan Hcach with their sister, Marie. The boys arc II and 12 years old und Marie Is 18. Their father. James Jacques, who lives at 1363 Fulton street, Brooklyn. Is employed on the Brooklyn Bridge. The three children had their luncheon on the beach, then the boys went wad ing. Marie waited for more than un hour und her borthers did not return. The Sheepshead Bap police were notified and a general search was begun. It Is believed the boys fell Into a hole and were drowned. A holiday crowd which was watching some swimming stunts In the Hudson Klvcr from the recreation pier at the foot of Fiftieth street In the afternoon was shocked when an unidentified red haired man, who had Just dived off the pier at the foot of Fortieth street, came to the surface shouting for help. With the aid of a rope thrown by Po liceman Henry Mlhr, Henry llaffe managed to get the man ashore. An ambulance surgeon suld that ho was dead. In the man's pocket was found a pawnticket for a razor made out to "Walsh." Charles Wlechman, IK years old, of 273 Hutledge street. Brooklyn, was drowned In tho morning while bathing In Lake Honkonkoma, L. 1. Wlech man was unable to swim. His body was not recovered until late In the afternoon. Several hundred persons walking along the boardwalk at Clason Point late in the afternoon witnessed the rescue of a young man by Sergeant Joe Grlffenstcln of the Volunteer Lite Saving Corps. He swum nearly u hun dred feet with an unconscious swimmer on his shoulder. Corstar Toppus, L'O years old, of 206 ICast 240th street, was the man rescued. He was swimming nlone when folks on shorn heard him cry for help, Grlffensteln ran out to the end of the dock und dived In. He sel7.nl him and made his wuy to the shore. Artificial respiration was re. sorted to, ufter which Toppus was taken home by friends. Tho catboat John T. of the Diamond Point Yacht Club capsized off Belle Harbor In the ufternoon, throwing four people In the water. Two of the party described themselves us John Smith of Grand tdrcct, Brooklyn, nnd John N'lxon, f.O Montague street, Brooklyn. As the lulter address Is u warehouse, It is thought that both nanus ule fic titious. The other men refused to glvo their names or to say where they lived. FRENCH ESTATE DISTRIBUTED.

(inne Tells Why He Put Them Up at Thirty first Street. INDIVIDUAL PAILS ALSO Water Troughs in Front of Saloons Are Profitable, Say Proprietors. 'el haps you have seen n sign Ht Hroadway and Thirty-first street which says, "Free shower baths for horses only." There are three of these signs, each fastened to the piece of transverse pipe. "I like n shower bnth myrelf when I'm through work," said the man who J fixed up those shower baths, "and I I supposed the horses might feel the j Mime way about It." Now that horses which are accus tomed to pulling loads up and down Hroadway are used to It they come back for n shower day after day. The Bureau of Municipal Research, which has Just put out a bulletin on the care of watering troughs, vouches for It. The man who figured out that a horse might like a shower as much as himself nnd who furnished the three at Hroad way und Thirty-first street Is William J, Gane, "The way I came to think of It was easy enough," said Gane yesterday. "A horse fell down across the street one afternoon last June, and It looked as though he was going to die. They sent for a policeman to shoot the poor beast, but some of my men happened to be using n hose out In front here and I had them pour water over the horse's head and back for half an hour. Tho policeman didn't have, anything to do, for the horse scrambled to his feet and went on. "The next day I got some sheet Iron troughs, put them out In the itreet and connected them up with hose lines to my building. The horses liked It. Then one night I thought of the shower baths, for I tnlto one myself night and morning. "At first the horses are frightened when the water comes down on their backs, but now they keep coming every day for more," In connection with the showers there are palls from which tho horses can drink and hose lines so that their mouths can bo washed out. The Bureau of Municipal Research, quoting Dr. Lederle of tho Health Department and Secretary Morton of the A. S. P. C. A., says these Individual drinking bucketH are the safest things for horses Just as individual drinking cups are essen tials nowadays for men nnd women. As for the common drinking trough It Is Just ns bad as the common drinking cup, says Dr. Lederle. The bureau'a report says; Writing for the Health Department Commissioner Lederlo goes .urther nnd suggests that "the department should forbid the further erection of watering troughs of any description and that In future their placo should be supplied by draw hydrants, preferably uso lated In summer with the shower bath nnd cared for by an attendant." This means that live wooden troughs and 142 other troughs (particularly thoso whose rovers servo chlctly for hiding dirt and garbage and prevent effective cleaning) should be discontinued and removed. in this extreme position the veteri narians und the stable superintendents whom we huve ronsulted agree with Commissioner Lederle. So does William K. Horton, secretary of the A. H. V C. A. At present nobody has the duty of caring for filthy or broken city water ing troughs. Tho Water Department does It when somebody tells about bad conditions, but thero Is no systematic I way of I'.eeplntr them in shape, as for instance tne A. o. I'. C. A. I:eeps Ita troughs In order. LIVE TOPICS ABOUT TOWN. A certain beggar, who evidently believes that originality pays, may be seen almost every afternoon walking along Thirty fourth street tapping the pavement with his cano and calling out " I'm not blind! I'm not blind!" But judging from thn contents of his cup he excites a good deal moro curiosity than symapthy. The Sun's story of the coming changes in the sailors' uniforms reminds me," said the amateur historian, "of tho reasons for the old uniform, which hud reasons indoed for each integral part . 1 he Ameri can uniform was copied with fow changes from the English wear for sailors. "The flat topped hats are relics of the days when sailormen had to go skipping to the tops with ropes. Bo that they could use both hands in climbing tho hats were flattened and tho ropes wero colled and carried on top. Tho broad collars wero worn because, of the pomatum on the pigtails which used to be worn; tho collars kept blouses clean. Tho black band around the hat was a sign of mourning for the death, of Lord Nelson and the three stripes on tho collar were reminders of Nelson's three greatest (victories Cape Ht. Vincent, Trafalgar and Copen hagen. "The wide trousers were made that way so that sailors slushing the decks could pull them up abovo the kneo without having to roll them." The way modern restaurants keep abreast with the times is Bhown by a large Harlem cafe, where thn latest cocktail has been entitled "Jack Kose." "It Is just like a clover club with a lit tle vermouth in it," the waiter explained, "but it'a something now. People comtj in and they don't know just what they' want, so they take a Jack Hose just out of curiosity. No, they aro not bald, they will never mako you confess and they only levy !0 cents on you." John Bmlth passed along the Whltn Way in his gray limousine with a Texas license tag at the back. The only thing he saw to comment on was the big sign on tho McAlpin Hotel which read: : 1,500 nOOMH I WITH COMMUNICATING BATHS. ; He said he wouldn't stay at a bote I whero the whole town would know what went on when you took a bath. "Half the fun of a moving picture show is in figuring out what "the actors are saying," said a consistent patron of the movies, "and I hope that they never get the pictures so perfected that they talk. " It is a pleasant exercise for the imagina tion to invent the dlaloguo as the action In tho picture goes on, and everybody In the audienon can think out a different speech for the hero, each one according to hit education and taste, and so every body is suited with what is said, which wouldn't be the case if the pictures had a phonographic attachment. The thoughtful mat or woman who inquires will bo surprised to learn how few magazines in this big city of 'New York find their way to the wards of tho city's hospitals. One woman, who re cently sent a package to a nurse in a crippled children's ward In a hospital right in tho heart of the city was surprised as well as touched by the nurse's almost tearful gratitude. The babies looked at all tho pictures. The nurses read and reread everything especially some gay fashion journals put in with a hope that some little girl might find an hour's solace " playing paper dolls." The patients in the adult wards had their turn next, and then the young resident doctors welcomed what was left. Inquiry proved tliat in almost every hospital in New York the demand for magazines Is far beyond the supply. FIVE CHILDREN RESCUED. Throvrn Into llndsnn Hlver When Launch Canslces llombnat.
