17 FARMERS TO MATCH BA MOPS MILLION Bernard .Barach's Question, "Who will jsatch me for a million for the Fourth Liberty loanf published in Tht Times, has brought a quick re eponsej promising great results. George P. Hampton, managing di rector of the Farmers' National Head Quarters, with offices in the Bliss building. andtwenty-three other men representing the principal farmers' organizations in the country, with a membership of millions, has taken up Mr. Baruch's proposition and at once cent as appeal to the organizations and the farmers everywhere to sub scribe to the loan and double and treble their subscriptions. Addressing Mr. Baruch In this mat ter, Mr. Hampton said: Hampton's Letter. , .The front page display in yester day's Washington Times, "Who Will Match Bernard Baruch for a lill ton7" In subscribing to the Fourth Liberty loan, makes an appeal that can b responded to literally by few patriotic citizens of the District or Columbia, however patriotic Assum ing, however, that the purpose of the appeal is to inspire all hundred per cest Americans to help put the loan over the top.' I, hasten to assure you that I have already signed an appeal with a number of representa tive farm organization leaders, to the farmers of the nation, to double their cubscrlptlons. or if any farmer had not subscrbed. to do so .now. as if It weret his own son's life that Is at atake. That appeal has gone broad cast over the nation. "I had already subscribed $1,000 to this fourth Liberty loan, which was the limit that I could safely afford without risk to my business, but In Keeping- with our appeal to farm ers, I am now subscribing an addi tional $1,000, and I appeal to every loyal Wasbingtonlan to Increase his subscription to the limit of his ahllitv, in this way wo can put the District 'over tho top.' Tours for the fourth Liberty loan, "GEORGE P. HAMPTON, "Managing Director." The appeal to the farmers follows: Appeal to Farmers. The undersigned representatives of the organized farmers of the na tion appeal to every farmer In the country to make a .record subscrip tion to our fourth Liberty loan, worthy of the great foundation in dustry of agriculture. Whoever may fat short of this great enterprise, so Vitally necessary for winning the war for democracy, let not the Xarm C3 of a single community fall to respond, in fullest measure, to their country"a call. "The grave danger we now face is ui some or us may slacken our etorts, thinking there Is no longer urgent need because of the Kaiser's The spread of Spanish Influcrza In overture for peace.

Please Consult the Telephone Directory Before Calling "Information" "INF9RMATIONM is called over 5,500 times daily in Washington alone for numbers that can be found in the TELEPHONE DIRECTORY. Such calls greatly reduce operating efficiency at the Information Bureaus. Much additional equipment and many more operators are thus required than would be needed if the directories were used as much as they should be. . In order that we may satisfactorily meet the difficulties due to war conditions, and conserve our resources for use in essential war work, we are obliged to request our pa trons to consult the directory for telephone numbers be fore asking "Information" for them. To assist in bringing this about, our "Information" opera tors, when answering calls for numbers appearing in the directory, will request the calling parties to look in the Telephone Book for the numbers. Will you kindly co-operate with us in this necessary war ecQnomy? Always Look in the Telephone Book Before You Ask "Information" for a Number. The Lend the Way They Fight Buy Liberty Bonds to Your Utmost Husband and Wife Victims of Epidemic Within a Few Hours "Tell Frank that I have been a good wife, and will meet him hereafter," were the last words of Mrs. JIaJorle Hammond, thirty two years old, as she died at Providence Hospital, a victim of the Influenza epidemic In an adjoining room was the body of her husband, Frank Hammond, forty years, also a victim of the disease. The couple came here about six months ago to do war work. They became HI a week ago, and were taken to Providence Hos pital yesterday. The husband died a few hours before the wife time to reorganize his forces and pro long the war. The penalty we, as a nation, would pay for such a rnls take, should It seriously affect sub scriptions to the Fourth Liberty loan. would be the unnecessary loss of the lives of thousands upon thousands more of our brave boys. "Nothlnsr will so convince the en emy of the futility of continuing the struccle and prove that the Ameri can Republic Is united in its determi nation to force the war to complete victory as an oversubscription of the Fourth Liberty loan, the trreatest war loan in history. Nothing will so hearten our allies and dishearten the enemy. Let the farmer lead In this supreme woik. "Everyone who contributes to this Fourth Liberty loan, though It means sacrifice till It hurts, U jelPng to win this war to end war. U helping to de - stroy autocracy and enthrone mocracy. Is doing his or her part to make sure that the men and women and chlldren who give up their lives In this war for democracy shall not have died In vain. It Is In this spirit that we ask irtn, ..-.. wKn h aifw,. mik. n-ibd tn the Fourth Llhertv loan o double his subscription, or more; th-t we ask every farmer who has not yet, subscrlbed to subscribed as If every dollar subscribed was directly needed bovsaIn & TanS me sTblue" arl our boys, serving us, and preserving the things which make life worth liv ing."

Nearly a qudrter of a million of American soldiers in training camps and military stations on this side of the Atlantc have been infected in I the disease since its outbreak In this country about the mlddlo of September. 10,000 Soldiers Dead. ' About 10,000 of the troops in the United States have died from disease of all kinds, during this period, prac tically all the deaths being directly traceable to influenza or pneumonia and other attendant complications of the malady. The strikingly high mortality Is realized when It Is considered that ap proximately one out of every twenty six soldiers Infected by the disease has succumbed. The exact figures are 234.S08 cases of influenza alone and 30,637 cases of pneumonia since September 13 up to noon yesterday. The total deaths from disease In our army camps for the same period has been 9,199. Although the number of new cases of both pneumonia and Influenza In the army Is slowly declining. It is expected that the death rate for the week ending yesterday, which has not been computed yet. will con stitute tho highest death rate from disease ever reached under condi tions In any way comparable to tho present. Dally Totals. For the past twenty-four hours there were 11,724 nrw cases of In fluenza and 2,780 cabe; of pneumonia, both slightly less than yesterday's totals. The deaths for the same period were S61, as against S92 for the day before. Late bulletins received hero by the United States Public Health Service indicate fresh outbreaks in many widely separated sections of the country. In Alabama additional cases are reported from Annlston and Huntsvllle. Nine hundred new cases are reported from Key West, Fla, and reports from Mississippi Indicate that the disease Is now present In practically every county In the State. The disease Is also widespread In Minnesota, but an Improvement ' is noted in New England, where the ravages of the malady have been the most severe. A slight reduction of new cases Is also reported from Vir ginia. Bar Them, Liberty Bonds and KEKP E In an effort to reduce unnecessary calls on the overworked physicians- In Washington because of the epidemic of influenza. Surgeon General Blue of the United States Health Service today called upon the people to learn about the home care of patients ill with In fluenzal "Every person who feels sick arX appears to be developing an attack of Influenza should at once bo put to bed In a well ventilated room," said the surgeon general. "Where a physic Is neided a dose or castor oil or Rocbelle salts should be given. Should Clear Room. "The room should be cleared of all unnccesssary furniture, bric-a-brac, and rugs. A wash basin, pitcher, and bowl, soap and towels should be at hand, preferably In the room or Just outside the door. ' "If the patient is feverish a doctor Tinnlrt t called- and this should bo pears very sick, or coughs up pinkish (blood-stained) sputum, or breathes rapidly and painfully. "Most of the patients cough up con siderable mucus; in some, there is much mucus discharged from the nose and throat. This material should, not be collected In handkerchiefs, but rather on bits of old rags, or on pa per napkins. As soon as used these rags or papers should be placed in a paper bag kept beside the bed. Pocket handkerchiefs are out of place In the sick room, and should not be used by patients. The rags or papers In the paper bag should be burned. Light Diet. ., . ... . . . iafl paucnis wiu not oe nunsry. au the diet should therefore be light.

"It is" advisable to give the sick room a good airing several times a day. The patient should be well pro tected against cold and draughts and then the windows should bo opened wide to let In the fresh air. Knre-a Precaution. "So much fpr the patient. It is equally Important tp consider the per son who Is caring for him. It Is Im portant to remember that trie disease is spread by breathing germ-laden matter sprayed Into the air by the patient in coughing or even in or dinary breathing. The attendant ehould. therefore, wear a gauze mask over her mouth and nose while she is in the sick room. Such a mask Is easily made by folding a piece of gauze four-fold, sewing a piece of tapo at the four corners, and tielng the upper set of tapes over the cars, the lower set around the neck. If the folded piece of gauze is about six Inches square It will nicely lover both mouth and nose. Such a mask can be worn without discomfort for several hours, after which It can be boiled in water, dried, and used over. "The attendant should always wash her hands ulth soap and water Im mediately after waltlnc on or touch Ing the patient. This Is Important, for carelessness In this direction may easily cause the attendant to become Infected with the disease germs. "Attendant should.
