JACK THE RIPPER
The Whitechapel Fiend Finds an Imitator in New Jersey

Philadelphia, Dec. 7.
The Record's Millville (N.J.) special says: The body of Mrs. Annie Borden was found shockingly mutilated in her house yesterday morning. The floor was covered with blood and there was evidence of a terrible struggle. The woman was covered with blood and her clothing was almost wholly torn from her person and hung in saturated tatters.

Medical examination revealed the fact that the woman had been outrageously assaulted and in a manner rarely recorded in medical or criminal annals, her murderer having ripped open her abdomen with a keen knife and committed acts that sounded like descriptions of Jack the Ripper's work. The police yesterday afternoon arrested John Knox, who had been seen to hurriedly leave Mrs. Borden's house Thursday evening. Blood has been noted on his hands and coat. He accounted for the blood by saying that he had cut his hand on a piece of glass. The evidence against him is very strong. He was committed to jail.
