peating rifles is that the
top of tho receiver Is cn
,-tirely 6olld, tho empty

through an opening In
tho right hand side di
rectly over tho loading
hole. In this system of
sido ejecting tho empty
shells aro never thrown
into tho face, never cross
tho lino of sight or in
any other way interfero
in taking aim for the
next shot, but are always ejected to tho right
and away from tho shooter. Another great
advantage is that tho doing away with the
opening on the top and tho closing of tho side
slot by tho bolt makes it impossible for any
rain, snow, falling leaves or dirt to get Into

around tho head, as often happens from re

The automatic bobbin winder winds nil sizes
of thread on tho bobbin as easily OS a spool of
thread is wound, without care or attention on
the part of the operator, except to heep thc

what is termed a tight and loose wheel, tho

an advantage, as it does not necessitate tho re

Thc needle is short and straight, thus insur

quiring no care on tho part of tho operator.
The pressure on tho sewing foot is adjustable,
and when tho foot ls raised to remove the work
from tho machino, it brings Into play tho au
tomatic tension release. This takes tho ten

moved from tho machino without bending tho
needle or breaking tho thread. Every operator
on old style machines will appreciate this
Each machine ls furnished with the follow

Oil can filled with oil, 12 needles, C bobbins,

PRIZES ON PATENTS,
How to Get 2,500 Dolars
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 has
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
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
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
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 tuan who conceived
thc idea of fastening a bit of rubber
cord to a child.* 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
ol' hundreds ol' 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.
'lllX LITTLE THINGS THE MOST VALU
Comparatively lew people ; regard
themselves as inventors, but ?almost
everybody has been struck, fcat one
time or another, with ideas that seemed
calculai ed to reduce some of the little
frictions of life. Usually such are ideas
dismissed without ftirttier 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 1 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 !" growls
the man who is late for breakfast "If 1
were in the business I'd make buttons
that wouldn't slip out, or break oil', 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
oppurtuni.y, put their ideas about car
windows, saucepai)h,and 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 r.ho.,'patented the fifteen
A TEMPTING OFTER.
To induce pecple to keep track of
their bright ideas and see what there
is in them, the Press. Claims Company
has resolved to oiler a prize.
To thc person whs submits to it the
simplest und 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 ofter is subject to the following
Every competitor must obtain a
patent for his invention through th?
company. Ile must first apply for a
preliminary search, the cost of which
will be five dollars. Should thissearrl
show his invention to be unpatentab;
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
I their application :
"I submit the ?within described in

Twenty-five hundred Dollar Prize
offered by the Press Claims Company.
XO BLANKS IX THIS COMPETITION.
This is a competition of rather an
unusual nature. It is common to ofter
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
Claims Company's offer is something
entirely different. Each person is
asked merely to help himself, and the
one who helps himself to tho best ad
vantage is to be rewarded for doing it.
The prize is only a stimulus to do
something that would be well worth
j 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 prize. Hellas 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
in his daily work ought to know bet
ter how to improve it than the
inechanizal expert who studies it only

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 employed to obtain their patents. Too much care cannot be
exercised in employing competent and reliable solicitors to procuro
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 hos retained counsel
expert in patent practice, and is therefore prepared to
