"RIPPER". CRIMES IN BERLIN. The horrors of the Whitechapel murders some years ago have been revived in Berlin by another "Jack the Ripper," whose gruesome crimes are shrouded in mystery. A" week ago, says a Berlin correspondent, the headless trunk of a young girl was found in the River Spree, near Cliarlottenburg. The limbs had been severed, and the way the knife had been used indicated some knowledge of anatomy. There was nothing to reveal the woman's identity, but, judging from the appearance of the remains, the doctors conjecture that the victim was about twenty years of age. A few days after- wards the arms and legs, partly burnt, were dis- covered on a mud heap, but the head was still missing. The public were very much excited over this ghastly crime, and the police exerted them- selves to the utmost to discover the perpetrator, lJut despite the oiler of a large reward no trace has been found. On Saturday another body mutilated in exactly the same fashion, and wrapped in some clothing, was taken out of the Spree in the heart of Berlin. This time the victim was a mere child. The whole police force were at once put on the alert, and the parents of a number of mis-in" girls were asked to try to identify the body. Franx Berliui, a cigar-maker, was among and nearly went ma i with grief when, by the clothing, he recognised it as his nine- I year-old daughter Lucie. The limbs and head of the poor girl were missing.
