JACK THE RIPPER WORK
Two Brutal Murders Near the Capital of the Austrian Tyrol

Vienna, Sept. 25.
A terrible double tragedy of the Jack the Ripper class is reported from Amras, not far from Innspruck (sic), capital of the Austrian Tyrol. On Friday last a young and pretty waitress of Amras, went away from her employer's residence in order to witness a religious procession near that place. On her return home the girl was murdered and the only clew found up to the present of her assassin is a razor edged knife, which was picked up near her body. The murder caused a great sensation in the neighborhood.

Close to the spot where the waitress was killed the body of another woman, marked and slashed with a knife in the regular Jack the Ripper fashion, was found yesterday. In addition, another woman belonging to the same neighborhood is missing. Naturally, the whole of the Amras district, as well as all the neighboring towns, are in a state of great excitement. A strong detachment of gendarmes and two companies of imperial riflemen are scouring the country around Amras, but all efforts to arrest the murderer have proved unsuccessful.
