Cinciksati, Ohio, July S. - A most atrocious and mysterieus act of sacrilego and vandalism was perpetrated on Walnut Hills. Uuknown parties entered the Calvary Cathofic cemetery and the Uuited Jewish cjmetery, both on Montgomery pike, just outside the city limits, and destrpyed nineteen tonib-stones in the former cenietery and five in tbe latter resting place of the dead. When the textons and keepers oL the burial grounds awoke in the morning a picture of ├╝eseeration was presented to their astouished sight. The tonib-stones toppled over or sbattered to fragmente are those of some of the leading CathoUc and Jewish fa.nilies of the city, and no cause is knotru at this writiug for this strange piece of vandalism.
