does not look away beyond them and

ber that these curious devices emanated
not from untrained, uneducated brains,
but from strong and ambitious intel

One poor inventor, however, found am

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*

which would swing his weight back

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.
