The idea of being able to Invent something strikes most people as being very difficult; this delusion the Company wishes to dispel It is the simple things and small inventions that make the greatest amount of money, and the complex ones are seldom profitable. Almost everybody, at sometime or another, conceives an idea, which, if patented, would probably be worth to him a fortune. Unfortunately such ideas are usually dismissed without thought, i simple inventions like the car window which could be easily slid up and down with out breaking the passenger’s back, the sauce pan, the collar button, the nut lock, the bottle stopper, the snow shovel, are things that almost *onie way of improving upon, the is these kind of inventions that bring tne greatest returns to the author. wil1 be paid 8tthe end of acted 7,.^.hKWJL0t,l?r the application has been by tbe Patent Office or not.

She was a sweet girl, a pretty girl, every one thought, but these mild terms did not half express Ernest Wilson’s opinion of Ruth Adams. She was a perfect woman, in the highest and purest sense of the word, and to a man who looked upon all women as being far superior to men, this meant a great deal. That was what he thought of her; she did not think of him at all, except when she happened to see him, and then he reminded her of his brother Will. Ruth was engaged to Will; she had been for two years; he had been by far the handsomest man in town, and she was the prettiest girl, and he had been proud of her. That was before he went to the city. Now he thought there were girls galore bet ter looking than Ruth; but he said nothing of the kind to her, for it was pleasant to have some one to make love to when he was obliged to go to the country; and he was obliged to go to the country some times, for Papa Wilson had a full pocketbook, and Will had not. So, in the soft light of an after noon sun, Ernest Wilson stood and waited for Ruth to pass, and watch ed her as she approached him, though with a little weariness of the injustice of fate. Not that he imagin ed for a moment that he deserved such a woman as did his handsome brother, who was a “gentleman,” only he would have loved Ruth tenderly, been very thoughtful of her, very kind to her, if she could have cared for him—and Will was so careless. Ruth did not pass this time; she paused and looked up into his good honest face, and then said, a little timidly: “Ernest, have you heard from Will lately?” “No,” he said, kindly. “There was a letter in his pocket from Will, re ceived a few moments before, speak ing of hard times and asking for the loan of a few dollars. “No, not lately; he is busy, you know, Ruth; you must not think anything of not hearing from him—he does pot like to write.” “Ernest when he first went away he wrote to me every day.” He looked down at her flushed face with a world of love and pity in his eyes; but she did not see that; she was thinking of Will. “Are you going home?” he asked. “I will walk with you, Ruth. Are you worrying about it? If you are, then—don’t.” “I will tell you honestly that l am. You are one of the people, Ernest, that no one would ever think of deceiving. I am unhappy and I am annoyed; it is not pleasant for a girl of spirit to hear the things people are beginning to say. At the same time I know it is only care lessness on Will’s part; he has given me his word; there is no one who could say otherwise than that W ill is a gentleman, and a gentleman keeps his word.” Ernest took off his hat and stood before her with bowed and uncov ered head. “If he does not,” he said, and in his voice th#re was that she had never heard before, “in a case like this I would like to kill him, if he were a thousand times my brother.’ “I would not have him keep his promise to me against his will/’ she sai<i proudly. “Never that. If he has changed toward me, then he owes it to himself and me to “To be a man—not a gentleman,” he said savagely. “To be both,” she said. But her lip quivered. They were at her gate by this time, and he opened it and waited for her to pass. Instead, she stood and looked at him. “Ernest,” she said, “tell me just what you think,” “What I think, is this: That no man, and I make no exception what ever, would possibly throw away the chance of winning you if he were in his right senses. If a man is not in his right senses, he is deserving of pity, not our blame. I wish you good evening.” And he left her looking after him like one bewil dered. It may have been a letter she wrote to Will that night, or it may have been one that Ernest wrote refusing the loan; but for some rea son Will came home a few days later. He had learned a new way to carry his cane, and his bows were more profound than ever; but his accomplishments seemed to have small effect upon his father and brother. As for Ruth—well, it may have been that she had grown tired of giving admiration, love, every thing, and receiving in return a kind of indifferent attention. When a woman begins to draw comparisons between her sweetheart ana oiner men things are not as they should he, for love knows no comparisons. She did think, and often, of the way Ernest had spoken to her, and of the manner in which Will talked, as if she were the one favored in their love affairs. And yet, to her, Ernest was noth ing in the world but Will’s brother. When Ernest thought of it seriously, he has never been anything to any one, but Will’s brother. He had been so unassuming, had cared so little for appearances, and Will had cared so much. Ernest was an ex cellent business man; he did the thinking, Will did the talking. Will used all of his ideas as if they were his own, and transacted busi ness for his father in an easy, off hand way, forgetting to mention that Ernest had spent hours of care ful thought and study before the line of action had been decided upon. It had been the same when they were children. Ernest read a book carefully; Will read a criticism on it, combined it with Ernest’s opinion, and carried on brilliant conversations upon it with older people, impressing all with his re markable mind, while Ernest sat by and said nothing. Ernest had realized this for along time, but there had never been any reason to care before. He did care now. “I am good enough for Ruth,” he said to himself. “I do not know anyone who is, and I would not for the world make her fthink less of Will if I thought he loved her or would make her happy, but he would not, so I intend to let her see how superficial is his knowledge and what a shallow man he is.” When Ernest Wilson made a re solution it was as good as accom plished, but this was the most dif ficult undertaking of his life, for he intended not only to prove to Ruth that she was wasting her affections upon a man who cared nothing for her but to teach his little world to speak of him as Ernest Wilson, not as any man’s brother. He was so accustomed to sit by silently when questions were dis cussed, knowing all the time that he had more knowledge of the sub ject than those who were talking, that it produced a surprise that amounted almost to a sensation when he first began to express his opinion in a modest way. It was very hard for him, as he was not only a modest man but a timid one as well, and had been long in the background. He succeeded well with the men, however, and with a dogged determination to carry his resolution through he was not willing to stop until he convin ced all his friends that he had a mind and opinions of his own. They were not so long in finding it out as he had been, fortunately, and soon he began to be spoken of as Ernest instead of “Will's brother” or “Mr. Wilson’s other son.” Much of the attention he had formerly given to business he turned upon himself, to the delight of his mother, who understood him better than did anyone else in the world, as is the way with mothers always or nearly always. She encouraged him. Then she went further. She dropped a word here and there of what Ernest thought, how much they relied upon his judgement and the like, and all this time Will lingered wondering why Ernest and his father did not help him pecuniarily, so that he could return to the city. He lingered and made love to Ruth till he wearied of it, then made love to Ruth’s friends till he wearied of that, and went back and made love to Ruth. And Ruth let him make love to her; she had been accustomed to it, off and on, for years, but for all that she was be ginning to think. The climax was reached when somebody gave a ball. Ernest went to the city, returning in garments of the latest cut, and appearing as much at ease as Will had ever done. Ruth was looking very downcast at this party, and apparently did not notice Ernest’s altered appear ance, much to his disappointment. He went to her after a while. “You are not enjoying yourself, Ruth,” he said. “Do you want to go home?” “Yes.” “Then come along.” A few minutes later they were walking together through the moon light; the wind blew the brilliant Autumn leaves about their feet, and they trampled down their red and gold glory into the soft earth. Ernest took the small hand that had been clinging to his arm and said gently: “Ruth, dear little woman, you are unhappy—breaking your heart over a young rascal who is not worth one thought from you.” “The man who is breaking my heart is worth every thought.” Ernest sighed; he had hoped she had grown more indifferent to Will than this answer proved. “Ruth,” he said desperately, “let me tell you something. Will is a gentleman—I admit that. But he is not the man to make you or any other woman happy. I am not pleading my own cause, for I learn ed long ago how hopeless that would be; but I have loved you always, and I cannot bear to see you throw ing away the best part of your life grieving for an unworthy man.” “I tell you he is worthy.” “What do you women call a worthy man? What do you call a gentleman? If that is what you con sider Will, then break your heart over your gentleman! I have done my best.” “I am not breaking my heart over a gentleman.” “Over whom, then?” “The brother of a gentleman. Oh, Ernest!” The tone, was it, or the look she gave him out there under the stars? But in some way he understood at last, and he clasped her to his heart, and thanked God with a voice that had tears in it, for this great blessing that had come into his life.—London Tit-Bits. -»—« An Eager and Hipping Wind, A continuous downpour of rain, inclement weather, generally in Winter and Spring, are unfavorable to all classes of Invalids.
