Heroic Measure Are v
Taken Against Burglar.
The extraordinary increase in the
number of daring warehouse bur
glaries recently has led to the adop
tion of ingenious counter tncaiures.
Whole business blocks in Berlin, by
joint arrangement, have placed all
their tenants in the care of special
squads of night watchmen, with an
elaborate system of army signals
keeping the watchmen in continuous
communication with each other.
It is claimed that these new
methods - insure complete immunity
for burglary. Nobody can leave his
premises 1 unexpectedly or surrepti
tiously, whether over the roof or
through the wall, so complete are the
signaling devices. Last year there
were 5 J ,000 burglaries in Berlin, as
compared with 600 20 years ago.
The city' 5,000 treets are divided
into 90 precincts and each is pa
troled every night bv four squads
of patrolmen, but, owing to the great
distance to be covered, no building
has been under continuous control.
The cost of the new safety service
is relatively high, but it is consid
ered the risk warrants the outlay,
which is shared i)y all of the firms
occupying the same block.
