AN ARM FOUND AT KING'S CROSS.
MEDICAL STUDENTS' STUPID JOKE.

Yesterday morning, about nine o'clock, a policeman passing along Lavinia grove, King's Cross, had his attention called to a brown paper parcel which had been found in the gutter, and which, on being opened, was found to contain a human arm. He took it to the police station, where it was examined by the divisional police surgeon who found it was the left arm of a woman, and that it had been used for anatomical purposes. From the condition of the limb it was evident that it must have been lying about for some months. It is believed to have been thrown away by some medical student.
