I am here to supply your wants, able prices, All'work warranted, and will do so at reason- The notorious Ratnsbargerp, who terrorized Hardin county some years ago, stand a good chance of getting a third trial. A special from Marshall town says: A sensation was Caused here this evening by the announcement of the fact that the notorious Rainsbarger brothers, Prank and Nate, who were serving a life sentence in the Anamosa penitentiary for the murder of Enoch Johnson in Hardin county some twelve years ago, are likely to be granted another trial. The ruling in the case of the supreme court of the state vs. Garrity discloses an error in the Rains- barger case which was tried the second time in this county, and the court says the ruling of the lower court is illegal, because of the fact that a change in the statute from an old law was brought to the attention of the supreme court. The Rainsbarger case was one of the most celebrated and sensational ever tried in the.state. Their alleged victim was their brother-in-law whom they expected to turn/state's evidence and send them over the road for counterfeiting. They waylaid him one dark night, killed him with brass knuckles, placed the body on a horse, and the next morning it was found by the roadside, as if dragged to death. They were twice tried and both times convicted of murder in the first degree. Two of the brothers—Phil and Mause— were previously shot to death by a mob in the Eldora jail. The gang terrorized northern Hardin county for many years. Hot Game of Ball. The Swea City Herald gives an account of a ball game recently played between the Swea City and Armstrong clubs: Probably the warmest game the Swea City club has played up to date took place at Armstrong on decoration day, between the highly lauded grand stand crack-ajacks of that city and our own reliable aggregation. Prom the misleading reports circulated concerning the invincibility of the Armstrong team,.the home boys were a little dubious as to the result of a collision with them, but the game proved that the Armstrongs are like an empty shell. By this comparison we mean that the purely Armstrong talent are the empty and the hired talent the shell. Cussin pitched a great game but had no support. The truth of the matter is they expect such men as Cussin to win the games for them and then they blow '• we killed the bear." However, with their salaried pitcher and all, they struck a snag when they led the Swea City boys up to the slaughter, and now they are repenting in words too vile for publication. Hart, our home pitcher, proved himself a hummer and the Armstrong boys had quite as much trouble hitting his curves as the home team did those of Cussin. It was a hot game, but the SweaCity boys won out by a score of 14 to 9. Death of Dr. Pipino. Dr. Pipino, the noted specialist of Des Moines, was fatally injured by being kicked by his horse, Thursday last. The Register gives an account of the sad affair: Dr. W, C, Pipino was fatally, injured last night about ? o'clock while horseback riding on West Ninth street. Near Gov. Gue's residence he was thrown from his horse, which kicked him, fracturing the skull in a horrible manner and fatally injuring him. In falling from the animal be appeared to have struck the curbing and to have l»een viciously kicked by the horse. Prof. Shoemaker was playing ball with some boys in a lot near the scene of the accident and he is confident that the horse was frightened at a large piece of paper which was lying in the road. Prof, Shoemaker saw the horse throw the doctor violently. His head struck the curb, but he dqng to the Hnes for just an instant and in that time received the terrible fractures which cost him his life. The horse ran but a few steps and was caught a'few rods away from the scene of the accident. Dr. Pipino was undoubtedly one of the most prominent specialists in the country, His name was noted not only in the state, but far outside it.
