space of five square inches and weighs
out, nve pounds, and can be earned
with ease from apartment to apart

any portion or part can be replaced at
a small cost, uy simply pressing
upon the knob to the full extent of
the spring (which conuects the bat
tery) an electric current is produced,
by which the spiral of platinum is
heated to incandescence and the light
is instantaneous. Ths material lasts
about two mouths, and can then be
renewed at a small cost through any
chemist. It will not be long before

at once. At a further cost of $-50,
connections and cups are adjusted to
the battery, controlled by a switch, so
that it can be adapted for the purpose
of ringing an alarm or call bell,
which can be attached to the instru

be rung at any reasonable distance.
When so adjusted, the circuit can be
altered in an instant, by the switch,
to give light or ring the bell at will.
