A Gruesome Discovery

A gruesome discovery was made at Scarborough on Tuesday.  Some painters engaged at a house in Ramshill-road felt a peculiar smell emanating from one of the windows of a small tower at the top of the premises.  On making a search the dead and party decomposed body of a child was discovered in a jar.  (Leeds Mercury, October 13th, 1900)
