This Rifle has many ad |8l vantages over other repeating rifles. S3 "Tho point in which this arm jfT*^ differs most from the old stylo of re peating rifles is that the top of tho receiver Is cn ,-tirely 6olld, tho empty shells being ejected 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 thc action. " In caso of a defective cartridge giving out around tho head, as often happens from re loading or from poor metal, no powder will bo blown into tho faco or eyes, as the solid top forms a perfect shield/' Tho Marlin Repeating Rifle is mad? in sev eral calibres, and any mako cf cartridges of tho samo marked calibro of tho riflo can bo used for it.

Tho "Singer" hos stood tho test of 40 years and made a princely fortuno for its inventor. Tho " Fashion " Singer, however, is an im provement on tho original machino, as it has all modern improvements up to dato which are known or found In a llrst-elass family sew ing machine. 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 treadlo moving. Owing to the machine having what is termed a tight and loose wheel, tho bobbin can bo wound without running tho workins parts of thc machine. This is quite an advantage, as it does not necessitate tho re moving of tho goods from underneath the presser foot, nor even unthreading thc ma chine Thc needle is short and straight, thus insur ing great strength : it ls also self-setting, re 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 sion from tho thread, and the goods can be ro moved from tho machino without bending tho needle or breaking tho thread. Every operator on old style machines will appreciate this point. Each machine ls furnished with the follow ing accessories and attachments: Oil can filled with oil, 12 needles, C bobbins, wrench, guide and guide screw, larce and small screw driver, instruction book, foot hemmer, feller, rufilor, tucker, binder, and a set of 4 hemmers of assorted widths. We also furnish a written guarantee warranting tho machine for five years, breakage of needles and shuttles excepted. This shows tho great confidence, we have in the machine, which wo Justly claim to bo tho best value for tho money over offered.

PRIZES ON PATENTS, How to Get 2,500 Dolars for Nothing. 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 the Patent.Ollice. 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 ABLE. 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 puzzle. 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 patent. It will also ?advertise?the invention free of charge. This ofter is subject to the following conditions! "--J 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 : "-,-, 1892. "I submit the ?within described in vention in competition for the Twenty-five hundred Dollar Prize offered by the Press Claims Company. u_? 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 any time. 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 from the theoretical point of view. Get rid nf the idea that an improve ment cnn be too simple to be worth patent ins:. The simpler (he helter. The person who besr succeeds in combining simplicity and popularity, will get the Press Claims Com pay's twenty-live hundred (lullars. The responsibility ol' this company may be judged from the fact that its stock is nehl by about three hundred of the leading newspapers of the United Stales.

PATEN TS, For Inventions Procured by the 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 Obtain Patents, Conduct Interferences, Make Special Examination! Prosecute Rejected Cases, Register Trade-Marks and Copyrights, Render Opinions as to Scope and Validity of Patents, Prosecute and Defend Infringement Suits, etcf If you have an invention on hand, send THE PRESS CLAIMS COMPANY a sketch or photograph thereof, together with abrief de scription of the important features, and you will at once be advised as to the Lest 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 ?re charged with infringement by ethers, submit the matter to us for a reliable OPINION before acting on the matter.
