Pocketbook Firecracker Alarm Catches Wife
A PAPER firecracker device which goes off with the noise of a pistol every time the pocketbook containing it is opened was Exhibit No. 1 at a divorce suit instituted by C. J. O’Brien, wealthy contractor of Baltimore.
O’Brien told Judge O’Dunne how he had suspected his wife of taking loose change from his pockets each night, and how he caught her by rigging up the firecracker device.
