MASON CITY, IA., SEPT. 19. - Struck by an automobile as he was being drawn along on a bicycle behind a car, Jimmie RITCHIE, 12-years-old, of Ventura, was fatally injured last night on the paved road near Clear Lake. He died in a hospital an hour after the accident. Rex SHANNON, undertaker at Garner, was the driver of the car which struck the boy. No inquest has been held yet. Just a month ago a brother of the dead boy was struck by an automobile within a few rods of the scene of last night's mishap and suffered injuries which were at the time believed fatal. He has recovered however.
