27 July 1889

The London police are outwitted by Jack the Ripper to an extent that would make the police of any American city feel ashamed of themselves.

Women of all classes tremble at the thought of the murderous wretch who chose the name "Ripper" to perpetuate his infamy, and the elite of the whole country shiver in anticipation that the shah of Persia may make them a visit with his retinue.
