Up t?ie Ravine.
. New York San.
About 1 o'clock in the morning
the settler who?e cabin was on the
Little Colorado River, under the
shadow of the Mogoll?n Moun
tains, aroused me from sleep and
gave me the news that the ApacheB
had crossed the stream both above
-and below and were advancing on
the house. He and his son, the
latter a boy of sixteen, had been
out scouting. My left arm was
in a sling from a recent wound,
but I had ridden thirty miles the
day before to warn him and others
that the band of redskins were
making for Mexico by that route,
burning and killing whenever op
portunity offered. .
There were the settler and his
wife, the boy above mentioned, a
girl of ten, another of eight, and
a boy of five or six. In addition
there was a little boy four years
old, "whose parents had been killed |
by the Indians about a month be
fore. It was decided that we should
?.et into the ravine in the rear of
the house at once. The man and
wife and youngest child went first.
His boy and the two girls followed,
while I, having charge of the little
orphan, brought up th? rear. All
the children were. awakened, and
there was fear that the two lit!le I
boys would betray us by crying1,
out. Before starting I whispered
to Tommy :
"The Indians are coming, boi if |
you keep still we shall get away
all right. You will ride on my
. back. We. are going among the
brush and trees where it is very
dark. If I fall down or the limbs
switch your face you must not cry
"No, me no ky out?" -he whis
pered, asM bent down for him to
climb on my back.
I heard the clatter of the ponies j
on the hard road as I left the back
door, and I was only fairly con
cealed when the Indians began
] yelling and battering at the door.
; The others had such a start that I
could not overtake them. And,
too, they turned into the first
ravine on the right, while I kept
straight on. A dozen times I
. almost fell headlong, and a dozen
times the boy was brushed almost
off my back. I felt ?hat he was
crying, but very quietly: Perhaps
he feared I suspected him, for as I j
. stopped to take breath he drew
himself up and whispered in my
"Me no ky out and^make Injuns |
The . redskins did not fire the
.,-house^.-as it . would ^ hay-e.. been, a
beacon light to their pursuers, but
- they smashed everything break?? |
. ble, took. what they wanted, and
after about half an hour continued
on their way. I reached a r>oint a
'. 'mile from the house and then sat
down on a rock in the deep ravine
to pass the rest of the night. I
took Tommy on my lap and hug
ged bim closely, but no words were
exchanged. After awh?e I thought
he dropped off to sleep, and I was
getting a bit drowsy myself when
I suddenly heard a bear coming
down the ravine. The click of his
claws on the stones was proof that
it was a bear, and his heavy step
signified that he was a big one. I
could not see my hand six inches
away, but pretty soon I got the
odor of the bear.
The ravine was about thirty feet
wide, and I was sitting doss to the
west wall. Bruin came down sniff
ing and growling, and just op-|
posite me he stopped, and doubt
less had a good, square look at the
invaders. I had lost my revolver
in my flight, and was perfectly
helpless. I simply shut my eyes
and waited for the attack. It did
not come. The bear sniffed and
growled for a while, and then took
a sudden panic and started off
down the ravine. I was drawing
long breaths of relief and feeling
glad that the boy in my arms had
known nothing of the danger,
when he suddenly reached up,
drew my head down, and whisper
ed in my ear :
"He wen t 'woof 1 ' 'woof I ' -woof?'
but I no ky out and bring Injuns

For Inventions Procured by the
PRESS CLAIM COMPANY,
Equal with the interest of thoBe having claims against the Gov
ernment is that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit ef valua
ble inventions because of the incompetency or inattention of the 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 by 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 CaseB, 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
ing on your rights, or if you are charged with infringement by others,
Bubmit the matter to us for a reliable OPINION before acting on the

PMS ON PATENTS;
How to Get 2,500 Dollars
The Winner Has a Clear Gift 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 way to do it
The Press Clams Company devotes
much attention to patents. It bas
handled thousands of applications for
inventions, but it would like to handle
thousands more. There is plenty of
inventive talent at large in this coun
try, needing nothing but encourage
ment to produce pratical results. That
encdurgement the Press Claims
Company proposes to give.
NOT SO HARD AS IT SEEM?.
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
must devote years to delving in
complicated mee han cial problems and
that he must spend a fortune on
delicate experiments before he can
get a new device to a paten tabla 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
of bringing them to the attention of
Edison says that the profits he has
received from the patents on all his
marvelous inventions have not 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 childes ball, so that it would
come back to the hand when thrown
made a fortune out of his scheme. The
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 THIS MOST VALU
Z. Comparatively lew 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."
"Han? such a collar button I" growls
the man who is late for breakfast "If I
were in the business Pd make buttons
that 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, saucepana,and collar buttons
into practical shape, and then apply
for patents, they might find themselves
j as independently wealthy as the man,
j who invented the iron umbrella ring
or the one who patented the fifteen
A TEMPTING OFFER.J
To induce people to keep truck of
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 in cash, addition to
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 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
I and Bureau fees,will be seventy dollars, j
For this, whether he secures the prize
or not, the inventor will have a patent
that ought to be a valuable property j
to him. The prize will be awarded by
i 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 j
Twenty-five hundred Dollar Prize |
offered by the Pres? olairas 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 I
Claims Company's offer is something
entirely 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
something that would be well worth
doing 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 prhse. He has a substantial result
to show for his work-one that will
comma nd its value in the market at
The plain man who uses any article
in his daily work ought to know bet
ter how to improve it than the
mechanizal expert who studies it only
from the theoretical point of view. J
Get rid of the idea that an improve
ment cnn be too simple to be worth
patenting. The simpler the better. The
person who best succeeds in combining
simplicity and oopularity, will get the
Press Claims Compay's twenty-five)
hundred dollars. L
The responsibility of this company j
may be judged from the fact that its
stock is neld by about three hundred
of the leading newspapers of the j
