A TRAGIC DEATH. - A lady named Milligan, aged twenty-one, has died at Kilkeel, county Down, under the following circumstances. A fortnight since Miss Milligan was out walking with two lady visitors, and all three were startled by the sudden appearance of a man who, personating the Whitechapel monster, brandished a knife, exclaiming "I'm Jack the Ripper." During the evening Miss Milligan became hysterical, and the next day fever set in, which, notwithstanding the efforts of the doctor, terminated fatally. The police are on the look-out for the man.
