ARREST OF JACK THE RIPPER.

The great sensation of the day is the arrest of the famous Jack the Ripper, as the London newspapers named him. At a spiritualist sťance, two of the participants asked one of the spirits who the famous murderer Jack the Ripper was. The medium gave details of a butcher from Betsy Street in the noted district of Whitechapel; with this information the participants went in search of the chief of police, informed him of what had happened and they themselves went in search of the famous Jack.

The chief of police, sceptical as a good policeman, at first did not believe in the information from the spirits; but, considering that there may be basis of substance in this matter, he ordered police officers to seek out the Betsy Street butcher. They found him and took him into custody, or so is truly believed, as the London police have not kept total silence on this matter.
