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.
