DEAR BRETHREN : *
. The fourth. County Convention
Will rxTheld at Good Hope Baptist
. Church on Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday,--August 18ihj l9th, and
More than three years have pass
ed since the inception of this work,
. and as we look over the field to
day we are deeply gratified at the
measure of Buccess which has at
l tended it. Almost, every town and
commu*nity in the county has felt
its.influence. Strong associations
have been planted atreven points,
.while^Young Men's Prayer Meet
ings and Bible classes have sprung
up here and there, piesenting the
movement in every stage of its
Probably there is no other
county containing so many Young
Men's Christian Associations, and
yet under the present system there
must be room for at least fifty.
As this is the oldest county work
in existence; there are yet many
problems unsettled^and hence this
convention will be of great inter
est and importance.
Every Association in the county
is urged to send a large delegation
of active members. Ministers of
tho' Gospel and members-of even
gelical churches everywhere are
given, a cordial invitation.
All the sessions of the conven
tions will be open to the public.
From the programme soon to be
issued, it will be seen that the va
rious subjects will be discussed by
many of our ablest men at home
The prayers of God's people are
asked in behalf of this gathering.

PRESS CLAIM COMPANY,
Equal with the interest of those having claims against the Gov
ernment is that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit ef v?Nua
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 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 purBue. 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,
submit the matter to us for a reliable OPINION before acting on the
