PREVENTED A MURDER

A "Jack the Ripper" Tries to Kill a Woman on the Streets of Omaha

Omaha, Jan.26.
Two soldiers from Fort Omaha were on their way to the fort late last night when they heard a woman screaming. They hurried in the direction of the sound, and saw a man and woman struggling. The man fled, and the woman sank exhausted to the ground. When she revived she said she had just left a street car and was on her way home when a man rushed up, and, seizing her by the wrist, said: "I'm Jack the Ripper and I'm after you," and attempted to drag her into an alley.
