Tho effect of the contrivance Is that,
when n thief enters the car and lakes

visible alarm hell under the car starts
ringing, and ciintlmics to ring even
after the thief leaves his hcnt and
necks safety from the police or citi
zens who nre sure to he attracted by
tho iioNo of the bell. The bell will
continue to rlin? until the owner re
turns to the car, or until somebody
finds the hidden control switch nnd
turns it off. Of course. If the thief Is
Ingenious enough to llnd this switch
nt once, he can tuiii off the alarm him
self, hut there Is small chance of a
thief working very long nround n enr
to the neeoinpnnlnicnt of n loudly
The various parts of the circuit and
their connection are shown In the ilhi
j.ram. The materials needed are: One
or mere smnll switches to be con
cealed as well ns possible within
reach of the ilrlwr; a good, loud elec
tric bell; ,a relay, or circuit breaker,
Mich as Is used on nearly all modirn
autoinolilles to connect the generator
to the battery when (he proper sliced
Is reached; some resistance wire,
lariro eiiiniL'h to carry several amperes
of current and some pieces of wood
ami spring brass to make the scat
switch. As will be noted In the cir
cuit diagram when the concealed
switch Is closed and the seat switch
Is cloved, the circuit through the bell
Is established, and. at the same time,
the circuit through the circuit-breaker
switch, so that, even though the
latter Is open, the bell continues
to ring. The resistance coll would
not be necessary If the circuit through
(he bell was continuous. Since, how

Hie bell, the coll N necessary In order
to maintain a Miillclent current
through the circuit breaker to keep It
from permitting the shunt circuit
across the scat sltch to open, thus
stopping the alarm. The only way the
alarm can be stopped Is by breaking
the mnln circuit, either at the con
cealed switch or at some other point.
If pioperly wired this cannot be done
by u stranger without spending con
siderable time, which, under the cir
cumstances, is out of the question for
a thief. least In a city or town.
