TItK KKITOLKMN-, AU4ONA, IOWA, WKl.NKSDAY, l/i A At&ULAR* PROOF SAFE. ,l)escrtt>tiou of the & Urban Safe at the .State fcattlt, A few' weeks ago the JM'tiliticA oetiasitin to mention the new Mac nettle & Urban bin-Rial- ptoof safe With non-lock-out time attachments •and automatic devices for operating , 'the bolt work. We were recently of- fofded the privilege of examining this safe by Cashier St.Olair who kindly explained its construction and the automatic devices with which it is fitted. Thinking that our* subscribers would be interested in knowing something of of the construction and appliances of of a modern burglar proof safe we venture a brief description of this one with the permission of Mr. St. Clair. We believe it to be the most complete safe manufactured in all that goes to defeat the burglar and reduce fithe danger of robberies to the minimum of a possibility. The safe was sent here by Messrs. Wood & Harris, Sioux City, general, agents for the" Macneale & "Urban Safe #,nd Lock Company, in competition with u Hall safe fitted "With a "Wooley Automatic Device," and although the Hall safe was the larger of the two it was shipped back to the manufacturer and the Macneale & Urban safe retained in its stead at a greater cost. The State Bank people Jare quite enthusiastic over the safe and are convinced that they have tiie best burglar proof safe manufactured. By way of preface to a description of the safe and the time lock devices with •which it is fortified it might be ^ell to say that safe building has undergone quite a revolution in the last few years. The professional safe cracker will now go through a door in about thirty minutes that was considered burglar proof a few years ago. He has discarded giant powder for dynamite and nitro glycerine. The modern burglar proof safe must be a marvel in construction in order to defy the -modern burglar. The new safe in the State Bank weighs 3650 pounds and is composed entirely of steel. The walls and door of the new State Bank sale are constructed of five separate plates of steel each plate composed of five alternate layers of hard •and soft steel. The hard steel plates •are intended to resist the' drill of the burglar while the soi't layers give strength to the door and render it practically indestmctable from any charge of dynamite that could be exploded with safety in a bank building. The several plates or layers of which the safe door is constructed are fastened together by means of a large number of steel screws, no single screw pr; s Hg through more than two phi v. a . u'he screws are composed of both hard and •soft steel, the soft metal running around the screw in the form of a -spiral. When the burglars drill encounters one of these screws it naturally follows the softer metal with the result. i that the drill is broken. The •door is. practically safe from the drill of the 'burglar. The manufacturers guarantee that it cannot be drilled by any means known to the burglar within a period of thirty-six hours. Burglars sometimes shatter a safe door by introducing nitre-glycerine around the edges of the door. ' It is necessary to a burglar-proof safe that the door should fit so tightly that a liquid. explosive could not be intro- 'duced. '-. The safe we are describing is fitted with a jack-screw contrivance upon the outside of the door, capable of exerting a pressure of thousands of pounds upon the door and forcing it home so tightly against felt and rubber padding that the introduction of any fluid explosive is rendered absolutely .impossible. The door will not lock until it has been forced home into position. The bolts of the ordinary safe are •made to play within the door. The hole necessary for the bolts is a source •of weakness to the door, and a point .at which the burglar directs his drill. The bolts of the Macneale & Urban •safe are fastened upon the back of the safe door. In case of accident to the eecohd timer it is still pOBsiblrto open the Safe by means of hammering upon the door, A piece of tnetttl' fg-*8tts- pended against the back frfot the door and - is so arranged that, it Will rebound from concussion and Operate a mtchet, which Rraduaily throws the bolts. No amount of hammering npon the safe door will have any effect, however, as long a ,s the timers are running. In case the burglar is successful in petting through the outer door of the safe at the State Bank th^cash is still as secure from his reach as it would be if locked up in an ordinary safe. The valuables within the safe are still guarded by a steel door, fitted with a combination lock like the ordinary safe. We believe the State Bank has a safe that is proof against all of the burglars in christiandom. It is a beauty in finish and cost in the neighborhood of a cool $1,000. •'>• No healthy person need fear dunger- ous consequences from an attack of la grippe if properly treated. It is much the same as a severe cold and requires precisely the same treatment. Remain quietly at home and take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy ns directed lor a severe cold and a .prompt and complete recovery is sure to follow. This remedy also counteracts tiny tendency of hi grippe to result in pneumonia. Among the many thousands who have used it during the epidemics of the past two years we have yet to learn of a single case that has not recovered or that has resulted in pneu monia. 25 and 50 cent bottles for sale by Dr. L.
