rooontly-found arms nnd logs bolong, nnd
he found it to contain two arms and
hands. The severance had been effected
at the elbow, but not with the neatness of
a surgeon. The hands are those of a male
worker, the palms being hardened. The
newspapers were the Argus, November 12,
and Herald, November 23. Tho parcel
therefore had been made up before the
discovery of the other human remains on
the previous Friday, which points to the
conclusion that they are part of the same
body, either thrown down on the same
date or subsequently. Professor Allen is
of opinion that the arms and legs found at
Hawthorn wore cut off by some unskilled
person. Looking at the arms as they lie
on the slab, there is every indication
the owner had been engaged in a fierce
death struggle immediately before death.
There is a lot of blood on the palm of one
of the hands. There are also scratches
and marks on the palms, and upon one of
the thumbs is a scar in the flesh. One of
the hands is also tightly clenched, while
the other is half open, as though an

nearer a solution. Tho detectives have
received a couple of anonymous letter,
but they no clue to the mystery.
One of the letters is written in red ink,
and in a schoolboy's hand-writing. It
concludes, "Beware of the Jack the Ripper."
Mrs. Wilson, of Sydney, has written to
tho police, asking that inquiry be made
about her husband, an ironfounder, who
came to Melbourne a little while ago and
obtained employment. He was assaulted
and robbod and gave a man in charge,
but when the case were called on Wilson
did not appear, and he was supposed to
have been squared. The case was ad-
journed, and a warrant was issued for
Wilson's arrest as an unwilling witness,
but he was never found, and after the case
had been adjourned from time to time to

were discovered. The Victorian Govern-

There is nothing fresh whatever with

that the thoory of murder appears to be
strengthened, making the affair more
perplexing. No definite clue has yet
been obtained as to the whereabouts of
the body from which the legs found at
Hawthorn were cut. The detectives are
making inquires concerning the disap-
