One of the sad accidents of the week was the killing at Savannah on Sunday of J. O. Pearce, one of best known retired business men of that place, and who is especially well known in St. Joseph on account of his banking connections. On his way to get his mail he was cut down by a Ford car driven by Mrs. Anna Frankovitch of Amazonia, who came around the curve at a good rate of speed and ran him down. His neck was broken and he died in fifteen minutes.
