He Thinks The Ripper Is A Woman

London, Sept. 21.
Lawson Tait, the eminent gynecologist, expresses the opinion that the murders in Whitechapel at Chelsea and Battersea were all committed by the same criminal. The guilty person, he thinks, is a woman and a lunatic. According to this view the woman is employed in a slaughter house and is subject to epileptic fits.
