Dreadful Catastrophe Near
New York TheDrnd
New Tork, Oct. ".The automobile
accident which occurred early today
at the foot ot Jerome avenue In which
three persons lost their lives and six
were badly Injured, was one of the
worst since the sport became popular
In this city. Loss of life would
possibly have been avoided but for the
untimely arrival of a passenger train
on the New Tork Central railroad. Vn
famlliarity with the roadway was the
direct cause of the accident. Albert
Noyes, a chaffeur employed by the
Riverside Casino, had charge of the
automobile, which was a heavy tour
ing car. With three other men and
five women, the automobile had been
ran up to Tonkers and Van Cortland
park, a popular ride for those who
wish to try the speed of their machines
late at night After supping at one
of the numerous hotels, the party
started on their return trip about mid
night. There was a straight run of
several miles south In Jerome ave
nue, down which the machine sped
at the rate of 25 to 30 miles an hour.
At 160th street the avenue comes to
an abrupt end. An iron fence guards
the stone wall and 40 feet below are
the tracks of the New Tork Central,
skirting the edge of the Harlem river.
Evidently Noyes was not thinking of
his proper course, a wide sweep to the
left, which would have carried the ma
chine out upon either of two bridges
across the river.
The iron fence afforded only a slight
obstruction to the ponderous car and
It fell with a crash to the railroad
track. Unfortunately for the pleasure
seekers a local passenger train bore
down upon the wrecked machine, tore
it Into bits and scattered the piece
along the track for two blocks.
Noyes" life paid for his error. Twc
of the Women, one of whom was Iden
tified as Anna Smith, 17 years of age
were also killed, and It is probable
that some of the other six will die.
Commissioner of Henlth Darling
was a passenger on the train. He took
charge of the relief work, summoned
ambulances and hurried the injured to
Fordham hospital. They were so
completely dazed by the sudden ending
of their trip as to be unable to fur
nish any details or give the name of
the third victim a woman whose body
had been cut in two. The casualties

New York. Oct. 7. Preliminary sur

city are being made and reports have
been submitted to the aqueduct com
missioners to increase the yield ot the
Croton water shed by building therein
another enormous reservoir noany
seven miles long and which, It Is esti
mated, would store more than ten
thousand million gallons for use In
Manhattan. It Is estimated that,

THE ORIGINAL REMEDY THAT "KILLS THE DANDRUFF GERM."
Every school child should know that baldness is a
contagious disease, caused by a microbe. Prof. Unna,
of Hamburg, GermanyAdiscovered that dandruff,
itching scalp, falling hair, and final baldness are
produced by a germ or microbe that passes from one
bead to another, where tt burrows into the scalp and
by multiplying and extending deeper and deeper Into
the hair follicles, saps the life of the hair root and
IT TAKES YEARS
to produce complete baldness, for the action of the
dandruff microbe is not constant In every case. It Is
governed by predisposition, by the state of health,
by environment, but particularly by the endeavor
made to combat the growth and development of the
dandruff microbes, which can only be destroyed with
This new antiseptic scalp germicide Is past the
experimental stage. It was made to destroy the
germ that causes dandruff and falling hair, and by
coaxing energy back Into the Impoverished bulbs, It
enables the hair to grow naturally and luxuriantly.
Thousands of letters from physicians, clergymen and
laymen tell the same story of Its wonderful success.
