The News of the Capture of the Texas Jack the Ripper

Hon. Cecil Smith, of Sherman, Tex., son of President R.W. Smith, of the LaGrange Female College, has been spending some time here with his family.

Mr. Smith is solicitor of his district, and just before coming to Georgia got the detectives started on the trail of the person who committed the three murders in Denison, Tex., some weeks since, all of whom were women, and accounts of which has been given by The Constitution. He has just been telegraphed that the detectives had their man, and left yesterday for Denison, to start the "mill of justice" grinding. Mr. Smith is a native of Georgia, and is one of the foremost lawyers of Texas.
