A CHANCE FOR PRACTICAL
The Press Claims Company, of

unique method of encouraging
American inventors. Every month
it makes an award of one hundred
dollars in cash to the inventor
having the most meritorious in
vention, who may apply for a
[latent upou the same through the
medium of this great combination
of American newspapers, effected
fur the protection of th ; American
people against unscrupulous pat
eut attorneys and claim agents at
Washington. Three awards have
been made already ; one to C. L.
Jordan, of Pellahatchie, Miss., one
to J. H. Rogers, of Philadelphia,
and the third to R. C. DeVault, of
Philadelphia, Pa. Mr. DeVault
ives at No. 1429 S. Juniper St., in
the City of Brotherly Love, and
his device which receives the
award of merit for the current cal
ender mouth, is a car fender, sim

operation, and no doubt of great
commercial value. The Press

would do well to secure. They can
