TOO FASTAT CURVE
Pasteur Expert, Dr. Ram
baud, In Auto Smashup.
FAMOUS CONTRALTO IS HURT
Going at High Rate of Speed, the Car
Turns Turtle, Throwing Party Into
Road All Were Injured Except
Scientist's Young Son.
Poughkeepsle, N. 1, Aug. 3. Dr.
George Glblcr Rainbaud, director of
the Pasteur Institute In Now York,
was perhaps fatally Injured; his wife.
Mine. Gervllle-Iteache, the prima don
na, was seriously hurt, and four others
were Injured when a sixty horsepower
car that Dr. Rnmbaud was driving
turned over when he was rounding a
sharp curve on the East Park road,
four miles from Poughkecpsle.
Valentine It. Gervllle, sister of Mme.
Rnmbaud, was bruised about the head.
Paul V. Laurent, niece of Mine. Ham
baud; Simon Laurent and Klngloy E.
Stiles, Adirondack guide, nlso were
less seriously Injured.
The only two persons In the car who
were unhurt were Paul, the two-yenr-old
son of Dr. Rambaud, and Albert
Jncquot, the chauffeur. Dr. Marvin
of Vassar hospital, where the Injured
were taken, said that he believes Dr.
Rambaud has suffered Internal In
juries, which will prove serious. No
alarm was felt for the others In the
Dr. Rambaud and his pnrty left heno
on July 20 in his high power auto fee
a trip through the Adlrondacks and for
several days had been camping nt
Long Lake, where the game protectors
found two deer In his possession nnd
fined him $100.
Mrs. Edward Tompkins, who lives
near the curve, said that when Dr.
Rambaud's car passed her home It was
traveling at a high rate of speed. She
said that the car appeared to slow up
for the curve, but the pace was still
too fast, and as it rounded the curve
the steering gear broke.
The car whirled oft the highway and
on its first revolution it hurled the oc
cupants out and then made three more
turns before it landed upside down in
a field twenty-five feet away. Dr.
Rambaud's young son was thrown
twenty feet away on to the grass, but
the others fell in the roadway.
Dr. Rambaud, who Is thirty-five
years old, is a nephew of Dr. Paul
Glbier, who established the Pasteur in
stitute in this city and came here to
take a course in medicine at Colombia
university, where he was graduated.
Ho succeeded his uncle as director of
the institute in 1000. In that year he
was married to Miss Lulu Fowler Bry
an, who had come from Texas to bo
treated for rabies at the institute. In
the fall of 1000 she, sued for divorce
and the case was heard before a ref
eree, who awarded her a decree.
After the divorco was granted gossip
associated the name of Dr. Rambaud
with that of Mme. Gcrville Reache,
who had come hero from Paris pn the
establishment of the Manhattan Opera
company, to be Mr. Hammerstein's
leading contralto. On Jan. 27, 1010, it
was announced that Dr. Rambaud and
Mme. Gervllle Reache had been mar
ried on Nov. 11, 1000.

Philadelphia, Aug. 3. Tho increase
in the price of the excursion, fifty trip
nnd package tickets to and from sub
urban points by the railroads will
probably act ns a boomerang. The
trolley companies, it is believed, will
transport more passengers to and
from outlying sections both in this
state and New Jersey, and tho passen

The trolley lines, within a radius of
twenty-five miles of Philadelphia
charge considerably lessthau the rail
roads. Many women will soon begin to feel
thnt the expenso of traveling over the
railroad lines is now too great, in some
instances tho increased excursion rates
being 50 per cent higher. It is antici
pated that many will economize nnd
travel by trolley.
Not only in Pennsylvania, but through
out New Jersey and New York stntes,
where the "equitable adjustmeut" of
rates also went into effect on the rail
road lines, indignation by travelers
over the seemingly unreasonable
changes is generally expressed. Busi
ness men's associations here and else
where are considering protests to the
state railroad commission nnd the In
terstate commerce commission.
While the public utilities commission
of New York has ordered a suspension
of the increase until October, the rul
ing does not nffect travelers to that
state from Philadelphia because the
commission has no Jurisdiction over
intrastate transportalon. The govern
ment commission will consider such
