"ATTACK" ON A SCHOOL- MISTRESS. On Friday lasu our Bridgend contemporary, the Central Glamorgan Gazette, contained the follow- ing :— DASTARDLY OUTRAGE AT ST. MARY HILL. A SCHOOLMISTRESS ATTACKED BY RUFFIANS. Last week information reached us of an outrage of which the victim was the lady who acts as schoolmistress at St. Mary Hill. Two men, it appears, made a dead set on her as she was return- ing from Toudu after visiting her friends a few days ago, and, despite her struggles, left the poor lady with shattered nerves and torn raiment—to use common parlance, her clothes were almost torn from her back." It is full time that these Jack the Ripper attacks were stayed. Is there no means of keeping such outrages under check The authorities are, doubtless, on the alert, but as yet no capture is recorded. Upon making inquiries into the matter, our reporter was informed that the lady referred to in the above paragraph has been at Llanelly (about 40 miles away from the scene of the alleged out- rage ") since July 29, and that nothing is known of such an occurrence at her St. Mary Hill address, No information of any such outrage has been given to the authorities, so that the statement that they are, doubtless, on the alert, but that no capture is recorded," is void of foundation. A sensational paragraph like this, unless it contains a full and particular account of the event to which it relates, is of little Value. Two other cases of violence being offered to females in this locality have been re- ported to the authorities, and the arrest of the culprit has been effected, as will been seen from a report of the police court proceedings in another column of this issue.
