MANY SUSLED IDEAS.
ROBERT GRAVES WRITES OF THE
UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
It Contains Thousands and Thousands of
Models of Inventions, the Majority of
"Which Have Jfevor Yielded Their Origi
nators Anything Some Are Very ITunny.
WASEEfGrox. July 2S. "The largest
cemetery the city of Washington," said
a government official tho other day, "is in
ono of the public buildings. It is tho ceme
tery of men's hopes, and tho headstones
are funny contrivances and machines."
He referred to tho museum of the patent
office, where ara displayed the results of
almost a generation of inventive thought.
To call it a cemetery was not far wrong,
for although many of the original ideas
represented there fructified and brought
fqrth rich returns to their inventors, by far
the greater part are monuments to disap
pointed ambitions, dead and buried long
ago. Each of tho thousands of models ar
ranged row upon row around tie walls of
the museum has its story to tell of hours
of patient labor expended upon it, mo
ments of exultation and times of deep de
spair. Some, too, could tell of minds break
ing under the strain, of broken health and
final desperate plunge into eternity. In
truth it is a cemetery in part, but not all
of it. One section is as humorous as Mark
Twain, and some of tho things for which
men have tried to get patents are as good
joke3 as can be found in auyparagrapher'a
Among the latter class is one which was
devised for the production of rain in dry
countries. The application for the patent
was accompanied by drawings and specifi-'
cations prepared in due form. The draw
ings represent a huge balloon, upon each
side of which was attaohed an immense re
flector. According to the statements of
the inventor, tho balloon was to be raised
to a convenient height above the earth, so
that tho rays of the sun should be caught
by the reflectors. These reflectors would
then act as a small sun and would attract
to tho neighborhood of the balloon moist
ure from the earth's surface just as the sun
does. So long as tho balloon remained
suspended there would be accumulating
around it a vaporous cloud, and the only
thing necessary to produce a copious
shower would be to haul down the balloon.
The cause of attraction being removed, the
cloud would condense and fall as water
upon the grateful earth.
It is not surprising that so much time
and labor should be expended in the effort
to discover some new thing or a new ap
plication of an old thing when it is con
sidered what rewards are awaiting the suc
cessful inventor. There are thousands of
trifling but useful articles from which
liandsomo incomes are derived, or for
which largo sums have been paid. Thus
the rubber tip at the end of lead pencils
has yielded $100,000 to the holders of tho
patent rights. The evidence in a recent
legal action showed that tho inventor of
metal plates used to protect soles and heels
of boots from wear sold upward of 12,000,
000 plates in 1870, and in 18S7 the number
reached 143,000,000, producing realized
profits of a quarter of a million of money.
A scarcely less lucrative patent was that
for simply putting emery powder on cloth.
The inventor of the roller skate made over
a million dollars from its use notwith
standing tho fact that his patent had
nearly expired before its value had been
ascertained. The gimlet pointed screw has
produced more wealth than mot silver
mines, and the American who first thought
of putting copper tips to children's shoes is
as well off as if his father had left him two
million dollars' worth of United States
bonds. Upward of 10,000 a year was made
by tho inventor of the common needle
threader. Many other similar instances
might bo recorded to show tho prizes in
storo for the successful inventor, but one
other will snffice. Every American boy
and almost every girl has at one time
or other been amused Avith the antics
of tho "return ball," a wooden ball with
an elastic attached. That simple toy yield
ed tho patentee an income of 50,000 a year.
When such remunerations are paid to
the inventors of such small trifles it is not
easy to conjecture the enormous wealth
which must be awaiting the discoverer of
that "will-o'-the-wisp" perpetual motion.
Is it therefore wonderful that there should
be so many seekers after that which has so
persistently refused to be found? Ono man
in Georgia was so sure that he had at last
discovered it that ho walked all the way
from his homo to Washington in order to
secure his patent. Ilis contrivance was a
peculiar one. It consisted of a toll frame
work, with four uprights, in which was to
be swung backward and forward the entire
trunk of a large tree. When tho butt end
of the tree in swinging struck a spring on
ono sido the spring was sot loose and threw
tho tree back toward the other side, whero
it struck another spring, wnich in turn
swung it back, to the first spring, and so
on. The only trouble with the thing, the
inventor said, was that it would go so fast
and was so difficult to stop when once
started. Of "conrso, tho perpetual motion
once obtained in this way, it was an easy
matter to transform it into power for run
ning mills or for any other purpose. Tho
model mado according to his instructions
would not work, but that of course was
tho model maker's fault. Ono spring that
winds another up while it runs down it
self, and vies versa, without ceasing is
another kind of perpetual motion con
trivance effored in many different forms.
Ono of the favorite linos of investigation
for inventors is that of aerial navigation.
Thoro are almost as, many flying machine
models in the museenxas there are for the
perpetual motion theory. Most of these
try to imitate tho machinery of a bird as
nearly as possible, although some depend
upon a balloon attachment to support the
weight of tho navigator, and use enor
mous feathers made of tin and silk
as a tail to steer by. Others still
believe that tho old way of using in
clined fans or revolving sails may be
made to work. But they don't, some
how. Ono man has pinned his faith to an
enormous kite with revolving sails and a
basket tied to the tail. Another supports
by means of two balloons a boat fitted with
two psddlo wheals and a steam propeller,
lika a ship. And still another has invent
ed an aaasl tricycle, supported by a bal
loon eent forw&pd by means of paddles
worked by tho feet
A very queer looking model for naviga
ting the water-is that of ivship, one-sisth
of the fore part of which-is made to revolve
by the mate progress of the boa and its
revofartiaa tarns the propeller at the stern.
AalSsxasighi aSjontfliisis, however,
that the inventor has made no provision
f ex starting tita vessel. Another peculiar
lookrngibiag shows aaimprovenaent on the
ordinary ixtethod cf hoisting sails byrsisdag
them as ypu "would en umbrella. Near this
model is one intended to assist vessels off
shoal place, which has boon mado historic
by the inven tor's subsequent fsme in an
other field. The inventor was Abraham
Lincoln, and hisdovice consisted of several
enormous sir bas3 which were to be built
into the hull of tho craft end inflated upon
emergency t huoy her off.
Among tha smaller models there are
many other surprising: idexs. There is a
rot taap, consisting of an imitation rat that
has apecso cheeso steek on tha end of a
little spesr prolactins from its nose a short
distance. Wtoi -a roal rat conies up to
nibble at the cheese iho spesr uurns out
about six inches and impales the unfor
tunate. A thing that would probably
have haTnlaxge.82bvIf ifc-kad worked in
thfljjiouecr daxs. is a-ahre:. tho beam of
wmeu T3 a gun as wen a very hanay
thing to have when Indians were around.
Another useful thing for border use is a
revolver toiire big or litfcls ballets, just as
may be requisite a great advantage when
lead is scarce and yon do not desire to use
a large build to kili a small man. Every
body who has lived in the country has ex
perienced the annoyance of having his
garden destroyaiby the scratching of hens.
Such -will be delighted to know that a de
vice has been invented to prevent this
natural aptitude of hens, and at the same
time to insure that they provide for them
selves a good living. 16 is called the "hen
persuader,' and is simply a piece of fork
shaped wire-fastened about the hen's ankle
with tie prongs extending rearward. This
prevents the fowl from scratching, and
also from going backward, fox the prongs
stick; In the ground when she tries to do
so. Consequently she finds more bugs
than she would if she were to go over the
same ground over and over again.

Tho slot device for ensaring pennies,
nickels, quarters and dimes originated in
England, and was imported to t.hu conn
try by the ever enterprising Erastus
Wiman, who it is said owns the American
rights of the invention. The patent is an
extremely broad one, covering every possi
ble application of the principle involved.
The automatio opera glass atfcidunent in
theatres puts a royalty in Mr. Wiman's
capacious pocket, just as the weighing
machines, lunj testers and so forth do.
Of all the cranky inventors who have
contributed to the humorous portion of
the 160,000 models in the patent office mu
seum the officials of that place have
awarded the palm to that one who sent in
an application for a patent for his princi
ple of "assisting tho locomotion of dogs."
This astute investigator said in his appli
cation that ho had noticed that a dog in
turning a corner rapidly always lost time
and expended a certain amount of energy
uselessly by being carried by his momen
tum some distance out into the street be
fore he could turn. In the interests of hu
manity he had endeavored to find some
method of remedying this, and ho now de
sired to patent tho device he had thought
out. This device, as shown in an elabor
ately prepared drawing, was nothing more
than an iron hook which was to be at
tached to each dog's tail, tho purpose be
ing to have the dog, when running at full
speed, to apply the hook to the corner of
tho building or tree ho was turning, and
thus swing himself round by the force of
his own momentum, which was otherwise
wasted. The inventor was sure that when
tho dog got used to it it would save him
valuable time, and if cats were the object
of tho dog's chase his invention might
prove a great boon to humanity. It is
needless to say he did not get his patent.
An Old Time Bachelors Club.
New IIavex, July 2S. Bachelors are a
pretty old institution. Whether or no the
bachelors of pre-historic times were ac
customed to band together for mutual con
solation or congratulation, if you please
does not appear, but bachelors' clubs
were certainly known right here in Amer
ica in tho early days of the present century.
Away back in the "teens" of the Nine
teenth century Connecticut boasted a
Bachelors' club, and there niay have ben
like organizations in other states. This
Yankee affair wasn't a very pretentious
one to be sure, but a good many of its
members turned out to bo big men and
all of 'em turned out husbands, by the
way. It was located in the bEckwoods of
Tolland county, in the northeastern part
of tho state, in the little town of Hebron.
There wcro thirty members, all sturdy
young fellows, ranging from 20 to 30 years
of age. Tho ruling spirit was John S.
Peters.who was the richest man in Hebron,
and who served as governor of Connecti
cut in 1831-32. Peters had more claims to
fame than his chairmanship of the Bach
elors' club, his wealth and bis guberna
torial honors. He was a son o? "Old Sam
Peters," the Tory clergyman, who was
forced to flee to England in 1774, and
earned the undying hatred cf Nutmeg
state folk by mercilessly slandering his
fellow Yankees in his "General History of
Connecticut," which he published in Eng
land. It was in this work of roecage that
tho suppositious "Blue Laws of Connecti
Well, Peters, Jr., and his twenty-nine
fellow unfortunates of tho ststo of single
blessedness used to mest onco 3 week at
Peters' tavern kept by an aunt of Peters'
and drown their sorrow in lethean wa
ters of fiery disposition and carmine hue.
There were all sorts of queer performances,
toasts, songs and what not, and had Heb
ron had a clock in those days it would in
variably have tolled midnight before the
meeting of the bachelors broke up. The
rules of admission wrre exceedingly sim
ple. A candidate must 'have a certain ca
pacity for imbToing liquid consolation,
must be willing to put up "consolation"
in return for his election and must be a
bachelor. If a member married he was

draft on the membership that tha Bache

rious routes from St. Louis will be on sale
at Wichita from August G to August 10,

tickets will be extremely liberal and as re
gards the rates the round trip, wait until
they are announced which will be hortly.
