"Cap'n, I've got a complaint to

"Can that chatter!" thundered
the skipper. "You're under dis

HARD TO BEAT BURGLAR
Scientific Thfef Sets Hot Pace for
the Protectors of the Public
The burglar's latest invention for
disguising himself is one which while
it covers up his own tracks very neat
ly is liable to bring quite innocent
people into trouble. Not content
with wearing glove3 which enable
him to operate without leaving tell
tale finger prints behind him, he is
using "forged" fingerprints calcu
lated to send the police on false
scents. He obtains by various clever
methods, including the use of rub
ber, wax, clay or photography, speci
mens of other people's fingerprints,
which he proceeds to imprint quite
naturally on glass, furniture, doors,
etc. On the whole, however, though
this may prevent the criminal's de
tection, it can scarcely involve many
honest folks, as the police depart
ment only collects fingerprints from
those who have previously been in
trouble. But it is a little disconcert
ing, all the same.

Latest Device Is the "Telealarm'
Which Notifies Police of the
Presence of Intruder.
The "telealarm," the invention of
a young London engineer, which is
to be placed on the market immedi
ately, is guaranteed to trap the wild
est burglar or to give an instantane
ous alarm of a fire, according to the
London Daily Express.
A burglar may enter a house
where the "telealarm" is installed
and burgle to his heart's contend, but
while he is busy the "telealarm" will
automatically ring up the telephone
exchange operator, tell her there is
a burglar in the house and give the
The alarm machine consists of a
small wooden box which contains a
telephone, and a gramophone. The
gramophone is connected with elec
tric wires that are placed across
every door and window and every
point where a burglar might enter.
When one of the wires is touched
the gramophone is set m operation
and the record, like a human voice,
raises the alarm through the tele
phone, which is immediately con
nected with the telephone exchange.
The cry for help continues for twen
The closed circuit1 on the record
is utilized for the burglar alarm; the
open circuit on the same record calls
for the fire brigade when a fire has
broken out. The fire alarm is con
trolled by an improved electric thermometer.
