WIRE RABBIT ABO POULTRY FOR INVENTIONS PBOCURED BY THE PRESS CLAIMS COMPANY. | Equal with the interest of those having claims against the Government is that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit of valuable inventions because of the incompe | tenoy or Inattention of the attorneys employed to obtain their patents. Too much care cannot be exorcised iu employing competent and reliable solicitors to procure patents, | lor the value of a patent depends greatly, if not entirely, upon the care and skill of the h 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 j COMPANY has retained counsel expert in patent practice, and is therefore prepared to Obtain FVtcnts, Conduct Interferences, Make Special Examinations, Prosecute Rejected Cu*es, Register Trad -Marks and Copyrights, Render Opinions auto Scope and Validity of Patents, Prosecute and Defend Infringement Suits, Etc., Etc. If you have an invention on hand send THE PRESS CLAIMS COMPANY a sketch or photogrgnn thereof, togetncr with a brief description of the important features, and i you will be at once advised as to the best course to pursue. Models are not necessary ; unless the invention is of a complicated nature. If others are infringing on your rights, or if youwyo charged with infringement by others, submit the matter to us for a reliable OPINiOlv before acting on the matter.

( WSUM1S* Ml Broadway, New Yogi Incompetent Legislatures. “It is idle,” says the Now York World, -‘tor any of tbo Southern Stales to complain of the lank ol capital and immigration or to or ganize meetings of Governors to make known their wants, when they neglect so practical a plan for ad ! vertising their resources as a proper J presentation at the World’s Fair j would afford. Not a single State in [ tbo South has made anything like an adequate appropriation for a dis ! f5‘ay, while Texas, Mississippi, Ala bama, South Carolina and Tenues, see are not represented at all. They may attribute lack of immigration arid want of capital to any cause they thing proper, but the chief cause is a lack ot proper enterprise and public spirit. The outside world l has little conception of tbo vast re sources of the South, especially in j opal and iron deposits, and it is blind jfuilly for those States to refuse a proper appropriation to make them known.’’ Whereupon the Memphis Appeul Avalunehe frankly acknowledges the rsLulition. but lays the blame whereat properly belongs, upon the incap<«ny, ignorance and stupidity q# the Southern Legislators, whom tjjbe people send to make laws and ijuide the policy of the several States Which our contemporary clearly demonstrates, so far as the Stifle of | Tennessee is concorned. j The application to Tennessee is appropriate for Mississippi,inasmuch as the Legislature of this State, as ut present constituted, has done more to place an extinguisher upon the progressive spirit of the people c^t the Slate than can bo estimated. The penny-wise policy, which is I assumed to bo economy, has acted as a paralyses, that the State will Ions' be recovering from, and has proven a check to llio spirit of progress and development, which largely pre vailes among the people. It ts an anomalous condition when the law-making and the directing power stands in the way of the in terests of the people, who are ambi tious of a progressive movement to ward a development that they not only feel equal to, but are entitled to. There never was a period more favorably arranged for the South, and especially for Mississippi, for nr. onwuid movement, than the present, since the political field has been swept of all obstacles that hitherto lay in the way of our man ufacturing, mechanical, industrial and agricultural'advancement. The people are beginning to real ize how heavily handicapped they are by an incompetent legislature composed of back number statesmen who have not kept pace with tho times, and who are incompetent to realize how far behind the age they are relegating an enterprising pei pie with a non active policy which is deadening in its influence. There is a remedy in the future it is true, but much of spleudid oppor. tunny will have passed before the remedy can bo applied.—Natchez Democrat. 1 he World grows—Noah Webster would not know his old dictionary in ! 'he perfection it has attained in the j hands of modern scholars. The world ■ grows, however, and dictionaries with it. so that n cheap reprint of tho 11 i years old “original” Webster is worth about as much as an old almanac. Webster’s International Dictionary, j the recent successor of the latest ar.d still copyrighted “Unabridged,” is the | best work of its kind ever published, and well used in a" family, will be of mere value to the members thereof than many times its cost laid up in money.” — - -■=« -||i It would be a rather curious turn of affairs if the once despised and dis credited greenback should become the most valuable form of paper money In circulation in the United States. But that is precisely what would happen if the Secretary of the treasury should follow ud his refusal to jedem treas ury notes except in silver.—Providence Jorunal Ind.
