THE RIPPER IN FRANCE
He Has Killed Two Women and Says He Will Slay More

Paris, July 24.
Within a week two murders of the Jack the Ripper type have occurred in Marseilles. On each occasion a man giving an Italian name, accompanied by a woman, took a room in a lodging house.

In each case the woman was found dead in the morning, having been unmistakeably strangled to death and the body afterward horribly mutilated. A letter has been received by the police authorities, purporting to have been written by the murderer, stating that the crimes were the beginning of a series.
