T. P. RUSSELL & BROS. L. & L. CO. ; FIENDISH CRIME BY IRON COUNTY TOUGHS. i One of the most fiendish, inhuman and brutal assaults in the annals of crime was made hy a gang of Iron county toughs last Saturday A I young man and his wife, Thomas J. Mullane and lira, blllle Colllnaon I Mttlla f Richmond. Va., were I roughing It through the country for tba benefit Of blS health. Tin y hud passed through Annapolis on their j way from rft Louis to I'oplar Bluff) 'and were followed by a gang of j toughs, who seized them and plnion ling the young husband and holding a revolier to his head, drauued I is young wife to the woods, within Ids vision, ami brutuaily outraged her; then dragged her to a ham, while she pitifully cried to her husband, who was helplessly in the power of two or three or the gang, for help. He finally succeeded in breaking loose, and escaping a shower of bul lets: ran to Annapolis, a distance of six miles, and to the oflb f Jus tice A H. Johnson, where he gasped out his heart rending story. Tim Justice immediately deputized sev eral men who armed themselves and, accompanied by the distructed Ims hand, hastened to the scene of the crime. They surrounded the bam and hearing the poor woman's moans and the oaths of the men , t hey broke open the door und rushed upon them. Mrs. Mullane was unconscious usd nearly dead and her clothing was stripped from her body. There were thirteen ol the gang. A number of them escaped, but on Monduy six had bleu captured ami it is hoped that nil may yet be taken. Mrs. Mullane is in a most serious and do plorahle OOttditl and she und her hinbund, who is prostrated by his Unhappy experience, are being cared for by the good pe iple ol Annapolis. Tba crime is a capital on.', and there Is no punishment too savers for such liendlsliness. For Sale A tricycle in good con ditlon. Apply to lira E, E. Swink or call up phone ill.
