JACK THE RIPPER ARRESTED
German Detectives Attired as Women Arrest Man in Baden

Ludwigshafen (Baden), April 29.
The notorious "Jack the Ripper", who has assaulted and mutilated eighteen women, has been caught here red handed by two detectives attired as women.

It was announced from Berlin Match 26, in a dispatch, that the Bavarian police had captured the man who for several months previous had been terrorizing Ludwigshafen by a succession of outrages such as were committed in the Whitechapel district in London some years ago by a man who was termed Jack the Ripper.

The man taken into custody was a butcher named Damian, but he was subsequently released.
