''But I hear tliem rattling the illrer.

That Is open to argument, for there are

Host persons In such a case would make
a lot of noise In the hope of frightening the
Intruder off; some nervous women might
pull the bed-clothes over their heads so they
could neither see nor bear and let things
take their course; sortfe. men might march
boldly down-stairs, and perhaps be shot or
stubbed by a desperate robber.
Obviously It Is hotter to keep burglars
out of your house. The question Is: How
can it be done! What the people want to
-know Is: How can tbey be protected
against the visits of midnight marauders!
"Every body should know," said s police
detective to a New York Journal reporter,
"that the police can not stop bu rglaries. The
best they can do is to catch the thieves after
they have done tnelr work.
"I think," continued the detective, "that
every body who can should have some kind
of burglar alarm. It doesn't matter what
it Is any thing that will make a noise.
And my advice to people is, if you think
there is a thief in the house, tramp around,
rattlo things in a lively fashion. Nine times
in ten you will scare him off. If you go to
chasing after him unprepared to make a
desperate light, you are pretty apt to have
The principle of dealing with burglars as
laid down by the detective has been recog
nized as the correct one, and devices for
giving alarm to the inmates of house of
the eutranoe of a burglar have long been in
use. Patents have buen granted In Wash
ington tor over one thousand devices. 'The
principle in all of them is substantially the
same. The difference is only in the modus
Of course electricity is brought Into p'.ay
In the most approved modern burglar
alarm. Wires run from every door and
window in the house to the alarm ap
paratus, which in a city house Is geuerally
plaood In the second floor hall, or in the
sloeping apartment of the head of the house.
There is an indicator similar to annuncia
tors used in hotels. When the house is
closed for the night, a switch Is turned, and
the arrangement is in order. If a door or
window is open, the btg alarm bell will
ring, and the indicator will show exactly
which door or window is open. Thus you
can determine whether the servants have
left things in proper order. Of course at
no time in the night can any door or window
be opened without Betting the bell going,
aid it will ring uutll you atop it The bells
commonly used re large enough to arouse
every body in the house. But the burglar
is the first to hear the sound, and be scam
pers off as lively as he can go.
This electric burglar-frlghtener some
- times goes off without sufficient provoca
tion. Mice or rats have beta known to in
terrupt the circuit by tampering with the
wires, or pushing open a door not fastened.
Under these circumstances there is spt to
be consternation upstairs, and perhaps a
' solemn procession of white-robed figures
armed with guns and pistols to the scene of
the trouble as shown by the indicator.
One of the most ingenious devices of the
kind is an idea of aa actor, known for bis
partiality to line Jewelry and diamonds. It
is a pick-pocket alarm. In bis vest pocket
he carries a French battery no larger than
a match safe, with a tiny bell attached to It
The electric circuit runs through his watch
chain. No one could steal his watch from
his pocket without breaking the circuit and
ringing the alarm bell.
The mechanical burglar alarms are de
vised principally for travelers, as electric
ity has largely supplanted them for use in
homes. It gives the traveler some feeling
of security to go to sleep in a hotel with the
knowledge that If any one opens the door
or windows bell will sound an alarm. The
appliances for doing the work he can carry
in his valise, or, may be, in bis pocket
A drummer recently displayed to some
friends a novel device which.hs uses In his
t ravels. When he goes to bed he screws it
to the door Jam. It Is simply tube with
a weight la it A fulminating cap that
goes off with a loud report is put in ths tube.
When the door opens it strikes a trigger
which releases tie weight and the cap Is
discharged, the drummer awakens and the.

Mechanical alarms can be purchased
which are wedge shaped. They are simply
put on the floor la front of the door. Open
ingot the door dopresses a spring and clock
work rings aloud alarm. Booresof other
devices do the same work In as msny differ
ent ways.
' The general public; does not know how
many of the banks, jewelry houses and
. other places ot business where valuable
goods are kept are protected against
burglary. Watchmen sometimes fall asleep,
or wander off, or are not trustworthy. 80
aa ingenious electrician established a cen
tral protection office, with wires running
from it to various places of business.
, Safes were provided with eleotrlo-lloed
cabinets, snd-doors and windows were con

central office, and men are hurried over to

G. W. Cable Is a Southerner
by birth, who In his youth fought in the
Confederate army. Alter the war he came
to a perception of the tremendous un
righteousness and attendant evils of
slavery, and has since devoted himself
quite largely to the effort to iree the
South Irom some of Its prejudices by con
vincing It ot these evils.
His recent stories in the "Century," "Sa
lome Mullcr" and the "Haunted House In
Royal StreeV are examples of this. Ills
articles on "The Silent South" were an
effort to show bow the South might dis
criminate between "Civil" and "Social"
rights lor the Negro, and while declining
to grant the latter, might give the former,
the right to an honestly counted ballot,
to the use of public conveyances, hotels,
