More Rippers

THE GLOBE EXTRA!
5 O'CLOCK.

MORE RIPPERS.
Woman Butchered in Hamburg.

Cut Like Whitechapel Victims.
Is It the London Jack in a New Field?

Mutilated Body Found in Ontario.
Black Shawl Excites a Panic in Fall River.

HAMBURG, Oct. 18. - Excitement has been caused here by the discovery of a murder similar in its details to those perpetrated in Whitechapel, London.
The body of a woman has been found in Flensburg, a suburb of this city. The throat was cut, the limbs dismembered and the abdomen cut open.
The work of mutilation has been done by the hand of an expert, who, if not "Jack the Ripper," imitated him closely.
The victim was one of the class of unfortunates, the quarter in which the crime was committed was a disreputable one, and there are other circumstances to lead to the fear that the woman-butcher of London has transferred his operations to this city.
The police give no information, but an active search for the murderer is in progress.

HAS "CANADA" A RIPPER?
Mutilated Body of a Woman Found in a Shed Near Trenton, Ont.

OTTAWA, Ont., Oct. 18. - The settlement along the Murray canal, near Trenton, has been thrown into a great excitement over the discovery of the mutilated body of a woman, partially burned, in a vacant shed on the right bank of the canal. The body had been eviscerated, and one of the legs was missing. The identity of the unfortunate woman has not been disclosed.
The impression is that foul murder has been committed. A card was attached to the vacant shed, upon which was written in lead pencil a warning to trespassers to beware, while on a stick to which was attached a piece of paper, was written in the same hand a lot of doggerel. Every effort is now being made to ascertain if any woman is missing about the neighbourhood, but as yet without success. Where the body was discovered is an out-of-the-way place, and it is generally believed that the woman was decoyed there and murdered by a Canadian "Jack the Ripper."

SCARED BY WOMAN IN BLACK.
School Children Terrified at a Supposed "Mary the Ripper."

FALL RIVER, Mass., Oct. 18. - The stories which have been going the rounds of the local press regarding the mysterious woman known as "Mary the Ripper," and her numerous assaults, seem to have impressed the juvenile mind forcibly, and yesterday created a general panic in the Columbia street training school, where about 300 small children attend.
One lad had tried to play truant, but the vigilant eye of his mother rested upon him sneaking down the street. She grabbed a black shawl, put it over her head, gave chase, captured her prey and led him screaming to the school, where the children were assembled in the yard. At sight of the struggling boy and the woman in black, somebody shouted "Mary the Ripper," and with common accord the children made a mad rush for shelter inside the building, screaming with fear. Some rushed to their teachers and begged protection, and one fell in a swoon. Some made for their homes, and no amount of persuasion could tempt them to return to school, while most of those who remained were so terrorized that no lessons could be heard until finally a policeman was sent for to impress them with a sense of security.
