Jack the Ripper Sharpening His Knife

London, Sept. 18.
The Central News is in receipt of a letter signed Jack the Ripper wherein the writer promises to commit another murder in about a week. The handwriting of the note is the same as that of the letter and postal cards received by The Central News some time ago in which the Ripper declared his intention to pursue his course until he should reach the number of fifteen victims, and there is no doubt of the letter's authenticity.
