Wo have had an opportunity of inspecting the simplest, and yet most ellicatious burglar alarm we have yet come across, it is in the form of a combined alarm boll and door stop, and may be used just as effectively on a window sash as on a door. Tbo alarm is given the instant a door or sash is opened by the smallest part of an inch, when the bell rings for several minutes, and even after the bell has stopped it is impossible to open the door owing to the great leverage against it by the little instrument. The alarm is most easily applied, and the effect obtained is (juite electrical, especially on the would-be housebreaker. We do not think any burglar woidd have the temerity to risk a second attempt where he had once received a shock from this little contrivance. G. G. Mayo, ironmonger, Hamilton, is the agent for this alarm, and will bo pleased to show it to all and sundry. The price is very low in comparison with the advantage obtained.
.. tl A mooting of flic 11 ;un 1 1 to Comedy Club was held in the Town Hall last evening. Mr A. E. Manning (stage manager) presided, and there was a good attendance of members. A rough balance-sheet' in connection with the production of “ Sherlock Holmes” was presented, which showed that although Iho takings totalled just on TOO, the company’s contribution to the hall scenery (T122) was somewhat larger than was at first contemplated, and this loft it in debt for the first time since its inception to the extent of TlO or Tl2. Votes of thanks wore passed to Airs Brachor and a number of local tradesmen for their kind assistance in connection with the performance. The chairman announced that Mr It. J. Gwynue, who has acted as lion, secretary for a number of years, bad tendered his resignation. On his motion the resignation was accepted with regret, the retiring officer being warmly thanked for his past services. Mr F. Downey was chosen to succeed him, and Mr It. Lord was appointed auditor. After some discussion it was decided to produce a comedy in aid of tho local volunteer company some time during July, and a committee was appointed to select a piece. It was also reported that the Hamilton Bowling Club had secured tho hall for next show nights, and were desirous that the company should stage something in aid of the club funds. The members present expressed their willingness to do this, recognising as they did that tho bowling green is an important public institution and an attraction to tho town. Nothing further was definitely arrived at, but it is almost certain that “ Sherlock Holmes” and “Handy Dick” will be chosen. It is expected that the proceeds of these two performances will put the Bowling Club in a sound financial position, and they are fortunate in securing such willing helpers.
