THIRTY-NINE WOUNDS.

Wisconsin Has Developed a Rural Jack the Ripper.

Medford, Wis., Aug. 19 —An atrocious murder was committed at Perkinstown, a small village west of here, last night. The victim was a fallen woman who lived alone in a shanty about half a mile from the village. When found there were thirty-nine knife wounds in her body, the left side of her throat was cut, the large arteries being severed, and her face was hacked and slashed in a frightful manner. The woman’s true name was Konemann and her home was in Schofield, Wis. A man whose name is unknown has been arrested for the crime, and when taken into custody his clothing was found covered with blood.
