THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS. - An anonymous advertiser in the daily press invites one of the "American four-in-hand millionaires or British millionaires" to give 5,000 to assist an amateur detective in tracing the Whitechapel murderer! His plan is to employ 300 female detectives of the unfortunate class.

MITRE-SQUARE. - It has been discovered that Mitre-square, the scene of one of the recent atrocities, has "criminally-historic" associations, although it is a quiet-looking place. It was in the first place the scene of the capture of the dynamiters who blew up a portion of the Tower of London, and then not more than twenty years ago two men blew up a house in the square - and themselves at the same time - with gunpowder. - C.C.
