A German Ripper

Berlin, April 28.
Another frightful atrocity, similar to those committed by Jack the Ripper, is reported from Benthen, on the Polish frontier. The body of a woman was found behind the Military hospital in that town. It was mutilated in the usual manner, the abdomen having been cut open from the navel down, and other injuries too horrible to describe. The mutilations were skilfully executed. The victim has been identified as the wife of a tailor named Imielaw. Dr. Kudelko, a surgeon in the hospital, is under arrest on suspicion.
