THE LATEST WHITECHAPEL MYSTERY.
A WOMAN'S MEMORY GONE.

Malvina Haynes, who received very serious injuries to her head and scalp on the night of Bank Holiday, has been from that time until Tuesday lying quite unconscious at the London Hospital, no sounds but moans having escaped her lips. The sufferer has been under the care of Mr. George E. Haslip, the house surgeon, and yesterday the patient, upon regaining consciousness was only able to briefly relate the circumstances of the outrage.

She went out later on, and

SCREAMS WERE SHORTLY HEARD

in the vicinity of Leman Street Railway Station. A constable then discovered Mrs. Haynes lying insensible on the ground in a pool of blood. Besides her brain being affected by the injury, Mrs. Haynes is suffering from a scalp wound of rather an extensive character. A man who was said to have been near the unfortunate woman at the time of the occurrence, and who resided in the district, has since left the neighbourhood. The police hope that he may come forward, as his testimony might aid the ends of justice, by relating what he saw of the outrage.
