Citizens of Little Republic of Andorra
Ask Nothing of the World
While -new republics are engaging
attention, a very old one continues
living its life in northern Spain and
seemingly well enough content to re
main comfortably hidden in the Pyre
nees. 'Covering perhaps 100 sqlvare
miles 'of fertile valley among the
mountains, a census -of the republic
of Andorra would number no more
than 5,000 persons, many of whom
make matches; to buy those matches
in Andorra a purchasInk agent of the
Y. M. 0. A. journeyed from Paris dur
ing the war, and his account of the
adventure in thq pages of Travel in
troduces the little republic to the
readers of that periodical. Oharle
magne, one learns, gave the Andorrans
their liberty something over 1,100
years ago, and there they have re
mained ever since, too small and at
the same time too inaccessible, pre
sumably, to have their liber*ty taken
away from them. The bridge still
stands, arching a mountain stream,
on which the ancient Andorrans are
believed to have signed their treaty
with Charlemagne in 810. A "picture
book country," says the seeker for
matches, and enumerates "black
mountains with real caverns, ruined
towers and butldges, peasants in scar
let and green and tam-o'-shanter caps,
driving pack mules and herds of
sheep along the mountain roads." A
contented little republic, apparently
where all that the people ask of the
outside world is that it buy their
matches and other native products,
and otherwise leave them alone.

PATENT OFFICE BUSY PLACE
Last Year Broke All Records In the
Number of Inventions Thrt
Last year was a record year in vol
unme if not quality of inventions. Ap
plieations for patents reaching the
ptent oflice during 191(, appronched
the unprecedented number of 70,000,
rnore than any year's output. The in
crease grew with the year, Aaron
Hnaixly Ulm writes in the Nation's
Business. Those for the thlrd quarter
exceeded by 51 per cent receipts of the
same quarter In 1918.
Invention, of course, did not sus
pend during the war,.but, at least in
volurne of. production, it diminished.
And a great proportion of that which
did function related to war objects.
But at noon on November 11, 1918, the
great war became as ancient to the in
ventor as the Peloponnesian conflicts
of long ago.
i October, 1919, there reached the
division of the paftnt office ijandling
metallurgical inventions a total of 602
applications for patents. In one divi
sion 'handling chemical subjects-there
are several chemical divlsions-489
applications were filed ; in the agricul
tural impleeinct divisIon, 354 applica
tions arrived ; and the division dealing
with vehicle wheels and such appurte
nances received 721) applications, about
one-half of which related to resilient
tires. This last item (iscloses the fact
that inventions for the automobile in
dustry best reflect the current work of
the patent office.

tions went to the division that handles
nutomobile engines and parts. That,
