TrfE SMAR' CAUGH1 Society Men an< Losers in 1 $20,000,000 SUNK IN SLUMP Three Big Banking Houses Said to Be in Serious Trouble Because nf Flnrrv. MUCH ANXIETY IS NOW FELT Honey Situation Abroad Source of Added Trouble and May Make the Situation More Serious. Several members of the "400" were caught in the slump in Wall street yesterday, and it is roughly estimated that they lost fully $20,000,000. All told, it was one of the most exciting days Wall street has ever known. There is still much anxiety over the foreign money market, and the wiseacres of the street do not pretend to predict what a day may bring forth. NEW YORK, March 20.?After the smolte of battle had blown away yesterday and the Wall stieet speculators had time to get a long breath and consider, they found some conditions al once startling and astonishing. There was considerable truth in the rumors of trouble in three bis banking houses. The houses themselves wore not in trouble. but some of their customers who live in palaces on .">th avenue were sorely dis .. ?in utif nf these houses IirvSM'li. II ...... ... _ in particular it has been the practice to trade for one multi-millionaire on narrow margins because his unbounded wealth makis it certain that the house can never lose. Hut the severe break last week earned his trades many hundred thousand dollars below his margin?several million dollars, Hie gossips say. At the moment he was unable to respond, although the losses did not injure him severely. The banking house was in a very uncomfortable position for a short time. "400" Caught. Tin1 members of the "four hundred" have been i aught heavily in the slump of stock values. The aggregate losses of a group of young 1 has been conserva society Iirtri! (iiiu nvui<-? tively placed at *2.MX*>,000. The head of a family whose ancestor was the founder of one of the greatest railroad systems is said to have been 100.000 shares long on I'nion Pacific. His loss in this stock alone was over $.1,000,000. A woman member of the Vanderbilt family is also said to be a heavy loser. A close triend of the young railroad man. also a society leader, is said to have been almost "broke" in last Thursday's crash. He has since sold his new seventy-mile-anautomobile to net ready cash, and was reported to have put his Tuxedo villa on the market. Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish is said to have lost $1."V?U?hi by the shrinkage. She Is a leader of society, and her 5th avenue and Newi port homes are rendezvous for the smart s<t. The rush into the market of Thomas F. Ryan is said to have been principally to save from absolute loss the first named society speculator. That he was successful is said to have been accomplished only by rapid manipulation of large blocks of Interborough and Consolidated Gas. That society was hit hard by the crash did not become known until its memibers lx?nan to negotiate their OKI line securities. The women are reported to have been drawn into speculation through their male relatives, said to have been the tools of tiie big financiers. The losses of the smart srt is causing much talk in the financial district. Jt is admitted that the gayoty of Newport will be curtailed in consequence of recent losses. Much Anxiety Felt. A g"od deal of anxiety was expressed also over the money situation aorudu. jl somewhat remarkable that this anxiety was fostered by the persistent abstention, of New York bankers from withdrawing gold from foreign markets. The seemingly heavy sacrifices which are being made in the New York stock market for lack of credit facilities, which the foreign exchange market indicates a power to secure, gave rise to the vague fear that something worse than the "" " " * ?r. wlr r.t orm/1 i f lone i a fpart'd I\f'W 1 'UK > I < M IV I1IO I t v ....V.... ... If demands for gold should be forced on foreign markets, fabled reports were circulated in Wall street yesterday that the Bank of France was lending gold to the Batik HEALTHY CHILDREN MADE BY THE RIGHT KIND OF FOOD. A family doctor wag shocked when he found a mother had fed a three-weeks-old baby on UrapeNut m. But let her till it her own way: "When mv second baby was three weeks old it Ko. umf nc.'i s.?arv to f?'?*d it by tneans of a bottle. At first we used cow's milk, but it did not agree with the bul?y at all. although we tried a number of different formulas. We afteiward went from one food to another without flndiug any that would agree. The child was not only weak and thin, but would cry pitifully almost the whole day. "One day when giving my eldest child a dish of Grape-Nuts 1 thought 1 would see if the baby would take some. *! prepared It by pouring hot milk orer It and allowing It to cool. The child ate all J had prepared and went to sleep looking more satisfied than it had ever done before. I told one physician about It and he was horrified?said a child so young could digest only milk; ibat I must not do ft again. "So back we went to the bottle. Some weeks the child would gain an ounce, other weeks there would be no gain; twice she lost weight. "Finally, without letting any one know it, I began giving her a little Grape-Nuts at bedtime. 1 noticed she would sleep longer; then 1 added a breakfast of Grape-Nuts to her diet. * it was not long before every one remarked how much better the baby was getting. I knew the Grai*-Nuts was agreeing with her, for she was steadily Increasing In weight and her color became better. "Now she is 15 mouths old. weighs 27 lb*., and still has two meals a day of Grape-Nuts. My oldest child, now five years old, weighs 48 Jl>?. When a baby she would not take any of the soft corrals, but took to Grape-Nuts at once. I ?encourage the use of It with the children because it does tliem good, and tx?cause it Is so convenient? always ready." Name given by Postutu Co., Battle Creek, Mich.

At til same time money and discounts were easU in London.

The easier tendenc extended to the time money market hen rates for which were quotably lower. Th operations with the stibtreasury are yieldin some sain to the banks. The further liqu dation in the stock market is a relief ttv^h money market also. Another factor in the days of uneasines came from the tone of the intimation given out by prominent capitalists in thei new accessibility to newspaper reporters.

DAIRY FARM WATER SUPPLY Percentage of Cases That Are Tracenhl* to VilV CIRCULARS FOR THE FARMERS Necessity for Change in Conditions in Handling the Commodity?-Mr. Kellerman's Statement. In reference to th<? rpnnrf . V lliouc IU II1C Commissioners last week by Surgeon General Wyman of the public health and marine hospital service, based on the findings of his bacteriologists as to the possible causes of typhoid fever in the District, ur. ?. Liioyd Magruder ejys he thinks more streps should have been laid on the possible containlnaticn and infection of milk and of the water supply at the dairy farms supplying milk for the District. L>r. auagruaer Is of the firm belief that the percentage of typhoid directly traceable to milk is much higher than 10 per cent, mentioned in Dr. Wyman's report. He also believes that a large part of the 67 per cent of causes of typhoid, classed In the uuiwiuwii. cniiiit oe traced directly to the water supply of the various dairy farms in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Water Supply at Dairy Farms. "If the Commissioners are going to close all the so-called shallow public wells in the city as a means of remedying the situation they should thoroughly investigate the wells and other sources of water supply at the farms outside of the District with a view of condemning the contaminated ones or the offering of suggestions to better them," Dr. llagruder said. "At any rate they should direct the dairy farmers to he more careful. I am of the opinion that good results would be attained thereby." Dr. Magruder commends the bacteriologists in question for having gone so thoroughly into the subject and treating it so intelligently. He says it is a report of extraordinary value and should bring splendid results. Dr. Magruder, however, says he is disappointed that the basteriologists did not account for a larger percentage of the cases. He claims that the number ?. - counted for In the report has already been shown by previous writers as well as the local health officer. Is Badly Contaminated. "A large proportion of the 07 per cent of eases of typhoid fever unaccounted for in Dr. Wyman's report." Dr. Magruder went on to say, "is probably due to the fact that the water supply of many of the dairy farms Is badly contaminated. I base my opinion upon an examination of the water supply of dairy farms in 1WI5 by Dr. J. J. Kinyoun. formerly connected with the marine hospital service, and the field examination of sixty dairy farms last November and December by Karl F. Kellerman of the bureau of animal industry of the Department of Agriculture. It was shown by both of those investigations that nearly 75 per cent of the water supplies were infected and contaminated. "I consider the per cent of cases attrlb"uted to milk in Dr. Wyman's report too low. Tile per cent of cases mentioned in the report as imported into the District coincides with the observations I have made since lSCl. That more cases of typhoid are due to milk infection Is not only attributable to the lack of precaution In handling that commodity on its way from the farm to the city and at the local milk depots. hilt from tho snnr/'o nf cnnnlv T '??v ?- v.... wvu. v?- , x nuuiu recommend that the dairy farmers be encouraged to first boil all water used in connection with milk utensils and to endeavor to have the farmers periodically clean the wells and springs. In certain stales the health officers have Issued circulars to farmers, and I am informed that good results have been noted. It is a wellknnwn fact that typhoid fever is highly prevalent among the country population." Potamac River Water. Regarding the Investigation of the Potomac river water supply which Dr. Wyman states lie is still caryying on. in relation to typhoid. Dr. Magruder says there Is no reason to look to the Potomac as the possible cause for the greater part of the typhoid fever cases. "The prolonged series of experiments that were conducted during September, October. Mivcmticr ana uecemner by the Department of Agriculture and the officials of the new filtration plant to eliminate further suspicion of tiie Potomac water, showed that the filtered water in Washington is practically free from contamination," Dr. Magruder added. "It is very gratifying to note that the commission of the marine hospital service, in Dr. Wyman's report, indorsed the recommendations made in 1804 by the Medical Society of Washington and continuously urged since that date. That the public wells were unhealthy and contaminated from sewage, as referred to in the Wyman report, is nothing new. \ committee of the Medical Society, of which I was chairman, found that out thirteen years ago. and recommended to the then Commissioners of the District that they be abandoned. More than 75 per cent of them have, I am glad to say, been closed. Changed Conditions in Handling. "The report has shown most graphically," Dr. Magruder continued, "the absolute necessity for a change in the conditions in i,.? i; * I? : 11, 1-- * litinuiiiig in*- tvi-ai iiiiiiv nuppij iroill ine dairy farm to .the consumer. The bacteriological counts are most astounding. It shows the necessity of cooling the milk at the farms; keeping it cool In transit and In the process of delivery to families. That opens up the question of the legislation requested by the Commissioner? of the last Congress, to require a temperature standard at which milk should be delivered. It is ?mlnently desirable that milk should be kept ?t a temperature or aDout mty degrees. To avoid unnecessary hardship on the farmers, ample time should be given to prepare for the proper harvesting of ice. Only one winter in fifty years, according to the statistics of the weather bureau, has it been so warm in the vicinity of Washington that It was impossible to harvest ice. There is no excuse for a farmer not securing enough to answer his demands. 'If the delivery of milk to the dealer in the city could be arranged so that he could get his morning supply in time to bottle it before noon, the public would have milk twenty-four hours fresher for lunch and dinner or dinner and supper, as the case might be, and it would be possible IU1 I HC UUUOUUlCia LU IWfJF 111 uicir uwn Ice boxes the small supply left over for' breakfast instead of having the milk kept twenty-four hours in the ice box of the dealer before he starts to deliver it. This recommendation is strongly urged in Dr. Wyman's report. Milk an Important Factor. "From the fact that out of 747 cases of typhoid fever that were contracted In the District of Columbia, 643, or 80 per cent, used raw milk, there is strong reason to suppose that milk was an important factor in the production of the disease, especially in view of the reports of the contamination of the water supply used by dairy farmers and the positive knowledge that there were a number of typhoid fever cases on the farms in Maryland, Virginia and the District during the past summer and autumn." The report of Mr. Kellerman of the bureau of animal industry to Secretary Wilson of the Department of Agriculture of a field investigation he made last November and December of the water at sixty dairy farms is regarded by Dr. Ma. gruder as exceptionally Important and interesting.

It is possible, of course, that by using only hot water for rinsing cans and bottles, or even by thorough pasteurization, milk of an exceedingly high purity could be distributed from a farm, the water supply of I which was badly contaminated, but as Prof. Sedgwick says in his principles of I sanitary science, 'The fact appears to be I *' " 'loirv industry is, as a rule, In a I IHO.1. nit. ...... J very primitive state.' Therefore, it is | doubtful If the above precautions, or, In I fact, any of the essential precautions will I be taken to preserve the milk from pollution. "In the course of this brief survey about sixty dairy farms have been visited and the number of bacteria in the water supply determined, and also the presence or absence of the colon bacillus. To make the tests as strictly representative as possible the work of plating water samples and inoculating fermentation tubes was carried i? ,i,? n?M tiip water being on entirety m .. sampled and plated immediately upon being taken from the well or spring. The presence of bai'illus eoli is not indicated unless occurring at least in one cubic centimeter. ' "Of the sixty wells examined twenty-two contained below 500 bacteria to the cubic centimenter, and of this number but~-6lx showed the presence of bacil. eoli In samIples of one c. c.; nine showed the presence of between 500 and 1,000 bacteria to the c < .. and of those three showed the pres- | ence of bacil. coli; nineteen snuwcu mc presence of 1,000 to 5.000 bacteria to the c. c., and of these ten showed the presence of bacillus coli; sixty showed the presence of 10,000 to iin.OOO bacteria to the cubic centimeter, and of these Ave showed the presence of bacillus coli. "Although there is great diversity of opinion as to what bacteriological limits at-o nrnner for well water, we may fairly assume that the wells containing: less man 500 bacteria to the cubic centimeter and not showing the presence of bacillus coll are good water supplies. Where local conditions appear to give ij high bacterial count of | harmless bacteria water supplies containing less than 5,000 bacteria to the cubic cent!- j meter and not showing the presence of ha- j cillus coll may be counted as safe water. , The presence of over 5,000 and less than ; 10,000 bacteria to the cubic centimeter when the colon bacillus is not present may be considered suspicious, ana water tuiiiaiiiinj; more than this number of bacteria to the cubic centimeter should be considered unfit for use. The presence of tlie colon bacillus must be studied in connection with the total count and to some extent In connection with the local conditions in order to determine the relative importance of its presence; or, in other words, its relative importance as indicating; sewage pollution. Under these divisions we would be forced to class the various well waters indicated in the charts as lollows; 16 good, 15 fair, 17 suspicious and 12 unfit for use.
