Bank Bobber "Hit,"
The Rock Island National bank is
today being equipped with the With
erell Bank Protection System. This
is an electrical device so arranged
that in case an attempt should be
made to hold up the bank during
business hours. Cashier Robinson,
or any of the bank employes can, bv
winking their eye or doing some
other mysterious thing which we do
not understand, start an alarm
in several business houses where
loaded weapons are a! wars kept
ready for use. Should burglars enter
the bink at night a large a'arm
would be started that can bj heard
several blocks from the bank. This
alarm continnes to ring until some
of the bank peop'e who understand
the -stopping" combimtion arrives.
The bank for some time has been
using a burglar proof vault and safe
that are second to none in the coun
try, and with this additional secur
ity there will be no possibla chance
of a robberv of an kind. This sys
tem is now in snccessfnl operation in
