For Inventions Procured by the
PRESS CLAIM COMPANY,
Equal with the interest of those having claims against the Gov- j
ernment is that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit ef valua
ble inventions because of the incompetency or inattention of che at
torneys employed to obtain their patents. Too much care cannot be
exercised in employing competent and reliable solicitors to procure
patents, for the value of a patent depends greatly, if not entirely, upon
the care and skill of the attorney.
With the view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless
attorneys, and of seeing that inventions are well protected bv valid
patents, THE PRESS CLAIMS COMPANY has retained counsel
expert in patent practice, and is therefore prepared to
Obtain Patents, Conduct Interferences, Make Special Examinations,
Prosecute Rejected Cases, Register Trade-Marks
and Copyrights, Render Opinions as to Scope
'* '" and Validity of Patents, Prosecute and
Defend Infringement Suits, etc.
If you have an invention on hand, send THE PRESS CLAIMS
COMPANY a sketch or photograph thereof, together with a brief de
scription of the important features, and you will at once be advised
as to the best course to pursue. Models are not necessary
unless the invention is of a complicated nature. If others are infring

PRIZES ON PATENTS.
How to Get 2,500 Dollars
The Winner Has a Clear Gif t of
a Small Fortune, and the Losers
Have Patents that may Bring
Them In Still more.
Would you like to make twenty-five
hundred dollars? If you would, read
carefully what follows and you may
see a vray to doit.
The Press Clams Company devotes
much attention to patents. It has
handled thousands of applications for
inventions, but it would like to handle
thousands more. There is plenty of J
inventive talent at large in this coun
try, needing nothing but encourage
ment to produce pratical results. That
encourgement the Press Claims
Company proposes to give.
NOT SO HARD AS IT SEEMS.
A patent strikes most people as an
appallingly formidable thing-. The idea
is that an inventor must be a natural
genius, like Edison or Bell; that he j
must devote years to delving in
complicated mechancial problems and
that he must spend a fortune on
delicate experiments before he can
get a new device to a patentable de
gree of perfection. This delusion the
company desires to dispel. It desires to
get into the head, of the public a clear
comprehension of the fact that it is
not the great, complex, and expensive
inventions that bring the best returns
to their authors, but the little, simple,
and cheap ones-the things that seem
so absurdly trivial that the average
citizen would feel somewhat ashamed
r* bringing them to the attention of |
the Patent Office.
Edison says that the profits he has j
received from the patents on all his
marvelous inventions have ncc been
sufficient to pay the cost of his ex
periments But the man who conceived
the idea of fastening a bit of rubber |
cord to a chi ld,s balJ, so that it would
come back to the hand when thrown
made a fortune out of his scheme. The I
modern sewing machine is a miracle
of ingenuity-the product of the toil
of hundreds of busy brains through a
hundred and fifty years, but the whole
brilliant result rests upon the simple
device of putting the eye of the needle
at the point instead of at the other end.
THE LITTLE THINGS THE MOST VALU
Comparatively rew people regard
themselves as inventors, but^almost
everybody has been struck, at one
time or another, with ideas that seemed
calculated to reduce some of the little
frictions of life. Usually such are ideas
dismissed without further thought.
"Why don't the railroad company
make its car windows so that they can
be slid up and down without breaking
the passengers' backs?" exclaims the
traveler. "If I were running the road
I would make them in such a way."
,'What was the man that made this
saucepan thinking of?" grumbles the
cook. "He never had to work over a
stove, or he would have known how it
ought to have been fixed."
"Hang such a collar button t" growls
the man who is late for breakfast "If I
were in the business I'd make buttons
tbat wouldn't slip out, or break off, or
gouge out the back of my neck."
And then the various sufferers for
get about their grievancet and begin
to think of something else. If they
would sit down at the next convenient
opportuni.y, put their ideas about car
windows, saucepan 3,an d collar buttons
into practical shape, and then apply
for patents, they might find themselves
as independently wealthy as the man,
who invented the iron umbrella ring
or the one who patented the fifteen
A TEMPTING OFFER.
To induce people to keep track of j
their bright ideas and see what there
is in them, the Press. Claims Company
has resolved to offer a prize.
To the person whs submits to it the
simplest and most promising inven
tion, from a commercial point of view, |
the company will give twenty-five
hundred dollars m cash, addition to J
refunding the fees for securing the
It will also advertise the .invention
free of charge.
This offer is subject to the following |
Every competitor must obtain a
patent for his invention through the
company. He must first apply for a
preliminary search, the cost of which
will be five dollars. Should this search
show his invention to be unpatentable
he can withdraw without further ex
pense. Otherwise he will be expected
to complete his application and take
out a patent in the regular way. The
total expense, including Government
and Bureau fees,will be seventy dollars.
For this, whether he secures the prize
or not, the inventor will have a patent
that ought to be a valuable property
to him. The prize will be awarded by
a jury consisting of three reputable
patent attorneys of Washington. In
tending competitors should fill out the
following blank, and forward it with
their application :
"I submit the within described in
vention in competition for the
Twenty-five hundred Dollar Prize
offered by the Press Claims Company.
NO BLANKS IN THIS COMPETITION.
This is a competition of rather an
unusual nature. It is common to offer
prizes for the best story, or picture, or
architectural plan, all the competitors
risking the loss of their labor and the
successful one merely selling his for
the amount of the prize. But the Press j
Dlaims Company's offer is something
?ntirely different. Each person is
asked merely to help himself, and the
one who helps himself to the best ad
vantage is to be rewarded for doing it.
The prize is only a stimulus to do j
something that would be well worth
loin? without it. The architect whose
competitive plan fora club house
on a certain corner is not accepted has
spent his labor on something of very
little use to him. But the person who
patents a simple and useful device in
the Press Claims Company's competi
tion' need not worry if he fail to secure |
the prize. Ile has a substantial result
to show for his work-one that will
command its value in the market at
The plain man who uses any article
n his daily work ought to know bet- j
?er how to improve it than ?he
nechanizal expert who studies it only
rom the theoretical point of view.
Set rid of the idea that an improve
nentcan be too simple to be worth
RI tent i ng. The simpler the better. The
)erson who best succeeds in combining j
simplicity and popularity, will get the ?
Press Claims Compay's twenty-five]
The responsibility of this company j ?
nay be judged from the fact that its f
tock i? neld by about three hundred
