Another Ripper Murder

Leeds, England, June 11
Barbara Waterhouse, the 5 year old daughter if a quarryman, disappeared mysteriously last Saturday. At midnight Sunday night the police discovered a body in a bundle, which proved to be that of the missing girl. It was horribly mutilated. The legs and arms had been almost severed. The body had been cut open and the intestines protruded. The clothing had evidently been replaced after the murder.
