Women Vigilantes of 1913
There's a lot more to this story, including many pictures, fascinatingly recounted here.
Listed in chronological order. Newest comments at the end.
Sounds like they mostly just humiliated the husband nationally by publicising a private affair. Also, the incident just brought about what the wife and her lover wanted much more quickly.

If you have a look at the photos on the site you'll see that Volo was still, pretty much, a one horse (as seen in the photo) town and, even though Chicago has all but enveloped it today I'll lay odds that Volo was a long way from any formal 'justice' back then.
We could use some more of this 'frontier justice' today.

I have been there many times Expat - I don't think they even got that first horse yet!
