The Fifth Murder in London

A Horrible Affair

Intense Excitement

Bloodhounds Employed

London, Nov. 9.
Another murder has been committed in the neighborhood of Whitechapel. A woman occupying a house of ill -fame took on the previous night to her home a male friend. Nect morning her nude body was found in bed with the head completely severed from the body. The bowels and breast were removed, and the limbs were terribly hacked about. Although the limbs were so yerribly hacked the cuts were done in a professional manner, and leave but little doubt that a surgeon had been at work. The murder is the most atrocious of the series which have taken place lately, and tremendous excitement prevails in Whitechapel. The police are using bloodhounds to track the murderer.
