asses through the plug and has one end embedded in the explosive material'and its other end projecting from the device. The other end of the casing is flattened at its front, as 7 shown at 5, with a hole 6 formed therein so that a nail 7 or the like can be passed through 5 the hole to fasten the device to a wall or other support, as shown in Figure 1.
A cover 8 encloses the device and has its lower end extended to enclose the projecting end of the fuse, as shown at 9. This cover 7 is preferably formed of celluloid which protects the device from moisture and the like and which also acts to cause the fuse to be 45 quickly ignited if a fire should occur near the device, due to the combustibility of the cel- 7 luloid. The upper end of the cover 8 conforms to the shape of the upper end of the device, as shown.
Thus I have provided a simple form of fire alarm which can be manufactured to sell place where a if a fire should 00 will explode and corresponding par vlews, and in wh1ch:-
