JACK THE RIPPER
AWFUL DEED IN WHITECHAPEL

London, August 7.
Early this morning one of the denizens of Whitechapel, an old woman named Woolfe, was seized by an unknown man who cut her throat and stabbed her repeatedly in the body. She cannot live. The police, as usual, are unable to find the murderer, who has disappeared.

One man has been taken into custody on suspicion of being the assassin, but the evidence against him is very weak.
