Blood-Curdling Suggestions Growing Out of the White Chapel Horrors

London, Sept. 27.
The coroner in summing up at the inquest in the case of the last woman found murdered in White Chapel, stated to the jury that shortly after the details of the last sitting of the jury had been published, the sub-curator of the English Pathological Museum had informed him that some months ago an American had visited him and asked him (the sub-curator) to produce a number of specimens of the uterus. The visitor stated that he would willingly pay 20 each for specimens, his object being to issue an actual specimen with each copy of a book upon which he was engaged. The sub-curator promptly informed the applicant that it would be impossible to comply with his request. The American still urged the feasibility of procuring specimens, and said he wanted them preserved in glycerine, instead of spirits, in order to keep them flaccid. The request had been repeated at another institute. The sub-curator had promptly informed Scotland Yard authorities of the facts in his possession. The coroner expressed the hope that greater publicity would tend to elucidate the mystery, and that the publication of these facts in the American press would assist in throwing light on the subject.
