Origin of the Peach.
Meeh an'i Month ly.
Nothing is now more universally
accepted than the fact that the
peach is an [improved variety of
the almond. The almond has a
thin shell around the stone, which
splits open and. shows the stone
- '^ben"mature.- This Out?tfskin haB
- simply become flesh in the" peach,
' so that it is all that gives Jit. its
specific character. It seems now
clear, from investigation in the his
tory of aneient Babylon, that in
their gardens, now nearly 4,000
years ago, the peach was culti
vated then as it is now. It must
have been many years before this j
that the peach was improved from
the almond, and this fact goes to
show the great antiquity of the
fruit. . Possibly gardening in some
respects, at least so far as it relates
to many of our cultivated fruits,
was as far advanced six, eight, or
perhaps ten thousand years back
as it is tooday.
Phoenicians, many thousands of
years ago, as is proved by the re
cords, had in their gardens al
monds, apricots, bananas, citrons,
figs, grapes, olives, peaches, pome
granites, and even sugarcane was
in extensive cultivation. Certainly
this shows how very far advanced
these nations were in garden cul
ture these many years ago.

Mr. William Kinnear does not
hesitate to say that it is possible for
a person to live two hundred years
if the formula of diet which he
prescribes is followed daily from
early youth. To prolong life the
cods containing the most destruc
ive elements to life should be J
avoided, and some substance which
ill check the deposits or expel
them from the system should be
used. Mr. Kinnear's prescription
is to "avoid all foods rich in
earthly salts, using much fruit,
especially juicy, uncooked apples,
and to take daily two or three tum
blersful of distilled water, with
about ten or fifteen drops of diluted
acid in each glassful." This acid
mixed with distilled water, has
been found to be one of the most
effective means of checking fibrin

For Inventions Procured byjthe
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 valua
ble inventions because of the incompetency or inattention of the at
torneys en. " Dyed 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 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,
submit the matter to us for a reliable OPINION before acting on the
