The beet, model* do not adequately expcea the intricacies of' the reasoning which they an intended to eonveyi and *el dom do they perfectly make manifest' the oonelusiona reached bythelr au thor*. The aolid thought* of solid men, wrought into valuable machinery for trade and eommeraeor terrible en ginery for war, are not more interest ing than the freaks of ingenuity dis played on erery hand. The patent office museum 1* a place of Interest for the philosopher as well as the cardess sightseer; The amusement and enter-, tainmant of this wonderful place has long since passed for me; and itwaa with the plodding thoughtfnlness of a philosopher that I went through the patent office with some friends this aft ernoon. While thoy chatted and chat tered about tho peculiar things before them, my mind was dwelling upon the fact that this place was a chamber of horrors. Those devices tor flying machines, for perpetual motion, for aerial naviga tion upon many plans, and for other schemes Impractical for the present, are interesting, it is true, so long as one does not look away beyond them and see, in a dark and dingy room, the in ventor himadf. Put, when we remem ber that these curious devices emanated not from untrained, uneducated brains, but from strong and ambitious intel lects, we can faintly imagine the disap pointments and sorrows of the unsuc cessful inventors. Some of them lived in attics, in crowded cities, with little rai ment, and sometimes without food. They could see before them nothing hut suocess and consequent wealth. Their mirages faded away, alas, and In the sear and yellow leaf of life they either went over the hills to the poorhonse or found'final rest, after life's fitful fever, In the potter's field; unloved, unnoted, far from home and the loves of early life, with "unknown" marked upon a pine dab headstone. One poor inventor, however, found am ple success in afterlife; but not from his invention. Had he depended upon that one thing, and founded his hopes of life solely upon that creation of his brain, as so many inventors do, his life would have been a failure. But, after placing his model on file, he turned his mind to the continuance of his profession and becamo a great lawyer. The model 1* in a glass cose along with other devices which represent life's failure for many poor people. It is like an accordion, and was intended to be attached to the hulls of river craft to enable their nav igators to float them oyer shoal places. children of America. lint, as sn In ventor, US is wholly-unknown. One of the peculiar devices for navi gating the waters is a boat to be pro pelled by a gigantic windmill, but little smaller than tho boat itself. It never probably occurred to the inventor that a calm at sea would render his wind mill device a delusion and a fatal snare to the vessel uilngit, and to the passen gers traveling by that method of pro pulsldn. Another inventor, however, believing in the windmill theory, made an Improvement I?) upon it, by provid ing a treadmill on deck, .to be worked by horse power to make the windmill revolve. This Invention with its im provement probably represents .the wasted efforts of two ambitious Uvea, suggests again the chamber of hor rors. It is rivaled by another raodol which provided in the hold.of a vessel a great engine which is Intended to pump water into the bow of tho boat, and pour it upon a water wheel fixed at tho stern of tho vessel, tho ob ject being to force tho boat along by . sVij '.-\fN ?KisAssw.' ? thought power in ren tire genius baa lain .

"?? back and' forth; * W-4~ '?0W" ** J/'-jV, .iaBBppj captured U conveyed to the propeller by a peculiar mechanism. The Inventor pre-enpposes that the wavea will always swing his pendulum with precisely the aame motion; but he haa made no pro vision, and can make no provision, tor a storm at sea, or even an ordinary gale, which would swing his weight back and forth through the ship like a ter rible trip-hammer, amaahing and crush ing everything in contact with it, and shattering tho ship to splinters. This model represents a wasted life and wasted energise, commensurate with the wasted powers of the ocean which the poor fellow vainly strove to bridle for tho use of man. In tho glass cases where firearms are exhibited, there are curios innumerable and Indescribable.. One singular Inven tion by a farmer alwaya attracts atten tion. It was intended for frontiersmen who were ubllgcd to come in oontaet with hostile Indians. In the first place it would h-ive been so costly that no pioneer could'have afforded one, and in the next place it could never have been practically used. Tho beam of a plow is converted Into a gun. and was in tended both to fool Indians and to, kill them. If a hostile Indian came upon a farmer with one of these plows, he could see, of course, that the farmer had no rifle wit]) him. Then, as he advanced to kill the farmer, that worthy; could Just turn his horses to one side and shoot off his plow at Mr. Indian, and go ahead with Ills work.

How would mother llko to have a rocking chair which plays an organ, works an automatic fan and rooks itsolf by clockwork? How would baby like that way of going to sloop?. Some thoughtful fellow of domestio turn Of mind has invented this homo harmonia er, but it costs too much for poor peo ple. and rich mothers prefer to employ nurses. Hence the inventor remains poor and unhappy. Some lazy fellow has sat up nights to invent a machine which will pick up sticks of wood, put them on the saw buck, hold them there with an artificial knee and saw them into proper lengths. This con be worked with a treadle, while the farmer sits in doors, and smokes his pipe In peace, growing fat and jolly, whilo he watchcs his wife cleaning house and baking for the hands. The "hen persuader" was described when the patent was applied for. It Is a long wire attached to tho hen's ankle, extending backwards. It prevents the fowl from scratching or moving back ward and compels her to go forward all the time, hunting bugs and support ing herself. Surra D. Fnr. Squirrel* In Washington.
