A NEW CYPHER. Engineering mentions a new cypher which is held to be invaluable. The "Padlock Cypher," as it is called, employs 26 card slips, each having a capital letter in black on the left-hand side, as well as two alphabets in horizontal lines, the upper row in black and consecutive from a to z; the lower row in red, but with a broken alphabet, so that no letter is similar to the letter above in the top row. The back of each slip has the same capital* letter on the left-hand side, but printed in red, and it also has two alphabets, the upper row, consecutive in red, the other being a broken alphabet, as on the other side of the slip. A key- word is agreed on by sender and receiver. The sender arranges the slips so that the black capitals spell the keyword, picks out his message letter by letter from the black alphabet, and writes down the corresponding red letters in the lower alphabet. The receiver arranging his slips so that the red capitals spell the keyword, reverses the process and solves the cryptogram.
