��A Combination Lamp

and Horn for the

Motorcycle

0\I-" of the newest attailiinonts for motorcycles is a com- bination horn and lamp to be fastened to the handlebars, the shell of the lamp form- ing a base for the support of the casing of the horn. It is the in\'entif)n of Perrin B. Whitney, of New York cit\-.

The shell of the lamp is round, as shown at lo in the detail, and contains a reflector 1 1 , which is so constituted as to

form a resonating chamber for the horn. One or more light bulbs, 12, are also con- tained in the shell, and connecting wires, 13, pass outward through a specially arranged

��into disk-shape, 19, from which a number of short posts extend to the axis of the shell. To these posts the cvlindrical casing which is the contaiiier for the horn is secured. This casing may be closed by a lid, or co\er, 23, through which the wires, 25, leading to the electric vibrator 24, of the sounding device, ex- tend.

The construction is very compact and simple. The sound- ing qualities of the horn are greatK" in- tensified b\' the reso- nating chamber provided b\' the lamp shell. The device is adapted for use on auto- mobiles and other vehicles as well as for the motorcycle, the shell being provided

The three prizes will be awardetl l)y I lie editors of the Popular Scienxe .Monthly in the order of merit. What is more, even though your article may not win a prize, the editors may buy it at the usual rates, just because it is so good.

Tiierc arc no limitations to this prize offer. We don't care for fine jihrasiiig, lull wi' dii c.ire for good mcch.iniiMl
