DETECTIVE AND AERONAUT.

Mr. Edmund Reid, who was Chief Detective-Inspector of the Whitechapel district during the period of the "Ripper" murders, died at Herne Bay on Wednesday. Mr. Reid was born in 1846 and joined the Metropolitan Police Force in 1872. He retired in February, 1896, when he was the oldest divisional detective inspector in the Metropolitan Police.

Some years ago Mr. Reid was awarded gold and bronze medals by the Balloon Association of Great Britain for making record high ascents in a balloon from the Crystal Palace, and about 40 years ago he made the first descent from a parachute from 1,000ft. at Luton.
