A West Madison street jewelry firm in Chicago lias solved the problem of protection against* bandits and b'.ir- glars.

There is more Catarrh In this section of the country than all other diseases put -together, and until the last few years It) was . supposed to be Incurable. For a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease, mud prescribed local remedies, and by constantly falling to cure with local treatment, pronounced It incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a.constlrutlonal disease, and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J'.

In the interior of the store, which Js barely 30 feefdeep, are 14 buttons under tlie counters and desks and in nn-' expected places where they may be touched with the foot, while the hands nrc pointed heavenward and the eyes are looking into the awful depths of a revolver barrel. Once the button ! s touched the current is on, and the be. 1 ! begins its appeal for assistance ami cannot be stopped 1 until the current is cut off. The plan is not only, effective during the day, but,at night. If the front or back door is opened at • night.the current is on and the bell will sound an alarm. Th-e doors of the safe arc protected by a heavy piece of wood, which, if removed, will start the bell ringing. ... The plan, of the alarm is not patented, and Mr. Youngdahl, who is the inventor, does not seek to gain anything but protection. It wasithe numerous hold-ups in .his vicinity' that awakened in him n determination to flnd some means of protection, and, being something of : an electrician, he worked onl this plan.

"Lost—From, the battleship Indiana, In the lower bay, one automobile Whitehead torpedo. Liberal thanks to any one who will give information lead ing to; its recovery/' Such is an advertisement that migh' Lave been inserted in the newspapers were the rules governing the -publication of suo.h losses less stringent than they are;. The torpedo was lost from thie_ battleship one day recently The power division on that day. was called for torpedo practice, and, under supervision, of Lieut. John C. Fremont a new Wliitehead torpedo, invoiced to the ship at $2,500, was launched from tho port forward torpedo tube. A dummy head was fitted in place of the service head,- which is armed with detonators, and an impulse cUarge of four ounces of powder sent .the missile plunging overboard. Down the bay and some 500 yards distant, the torpedo was expected to run: But it did not. Through some disarrangement of the mechanism the propelling, machinery was not set in motion- when the torpedo struck the water, and instead <*f darting forward after submersion, rose-to the surface once, and then slowly sank. The torpedo was charged to a pressure of 1,100 pounds with compressed air. When questioned about the .loss officers of -tile battleship said thn.t a diligent search had been made for the torpedo, but .without. success. It was sighted off the bell buoy one .night, by the pilot of a Staten Island ferry boat A steam launch was hurried to that locality, and the search light* of the battleship were Used, but without success, . ....'••,' . •. ,.'..' A New York Herald special from Washington says: Secretary Lainpnt has directed the quartermaster-general to proceed at once with the preparation of plans for the'con-striiction 'of quarters and barracks for the accommodation of four batteries of artillery at Fort Hancock, Sandy Hook. There is $100,000 that cnn be used from the general- appropriation for coast defenses for this purpose, so that work can be commenced as soon as the department can' get np the plans iuid make the necessary contracts. Further ostircotes will be made by the next congress for continuing the work. The Atlantic coast i.s to be favored with the largest expenditure of Mib appropriation made by congress for the fortifications oj! the coasts of the United States. The Gulf coast is second and the Pncific slope i.s third. • The secretary int<vi<ls to expend a large suru on New York harbor, in order that it niny be acleqiuitolv protected from attack. Some of the northern cities arfi also to receive attention, but the bulk of the monej' set aside for the Atlantic const is to be expended on-ICew York nhd cities south o[ it. Behind the secretary'? decision with regrtrd to the expenditure 1 of more money on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts than on the- Pacific slope is said to be the administration's desire to get tho country in readiness in ease of a. war with Spaiji. The- possibility of a conflict 'with this nntJon is ahvrys open, in view of the delicacy of tie Cuban question, and just <as tho navy department has been getting 1 its service in condition for on emergency, so is the war department turning 1 its attention to our eastern ami southern coasts for the purpose of affording them protection in case of trouble. It is not anticipated" by the authorities tha.t such a conflict will come, but they think it advisable to be in rcncliucss should an arise. BIG WOOL CLIP IN THE WEST.
