FATAL CAR-TRAIN WRECK

J. M. CAIN, real estate operator, and two clients, Mr. and Mrs. A. D. BEARD, of Ohio, were instantly killed at 2:45 o'clock the afternoon when CAIN's big Cadillac car was struck by an out-bound Pacific Electric car at the McFadden Street crossing.

CAIN and BEARD, caught in the car, were carried with the wrecked machine a distance of seventy-five feet, and Mrs. BEARD was dragged 150 feet before her mangled form was dropped between the rails.

Conductor S. H. TRASK and Motorman F. E. BATES, were running the electric car, which was well filled with people. CAIN, known as a careful driver, was going east on McFadden Street. The electric car whistled. Evidently a house on the north side of the road hid the car from view. The electric car struck the big grey machine amidships, shoved it along the tracks and threw it to the east side of the tracks, CAIN and BEARD, a middle aged man, were taken from the wreckage, laid out upon the ground.

The woman's body was found between the rails. Coroner WINBIGLER arrived a few minutes after the accident. The car ran 100 yards before it stopped. From letters found in Mrs. BEARD's handbag, it was learned that the couple had been stopping at 915 South Olive Street, Los Angeles. They were being shown real estate when the accident occurred. J. M. CAIN, well known all over the county, was a member of the Santa Ana School Board, as well as a real estate dealer.

J. M. CAIN was born and raised in Woodland Township, Decatur County, Iowa. He married Allie M. HALL, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. HALL. They moved to California in the spring of 1893, and since made that their home. Five children were born to this union, one dying in infancy. Morris, the oldest is a lawyer in Los Angeles; Willard, Homer and Onita are still in school and with their mother are left to mourn the loss of a kind and affectionate husband and father. He also leaves four sisters, Mrs. A. W. HUTCHINSON, of Mt. Ayr; Mrs. W. T. LANE, of Woodland Township, Decatur County, Iowa; Mrs. Stella DUEFEE and Mrs. Mell HEPTONSTALH, of California; and a brother, Chas. CAIN, of Benton, Iowa.

This is a very sad blow to his family and his many friends. His Iowa friends which were many, deeply deplore his untimely death and sympathize with his bereaved family in this sad hour.
