Here is a hint from the Grand Iij
and Tinf which shows that it is pot
only the west that is looking to irriga-
ion: "Put up a windmill, plant and
rrig its one acre of potatoes and you
will make enough in profit in one year
to pay for the mill. Try it. Our mer
chant are importing potatoes which
frequently are inferior to those raised
here and paying a price for them in addi.
tion to freight charges which would rep-
e.e.nt a ltij prolit to the potato raiser
here at home."

the bride's parents near Five Points,

Hunter, justice of the peace, on Friday,
Mar. 10, 1894, Mr. A. O. Hageman, of
fcdge-mont, S. JJak., and Miss Alice
Hovey, of Sioux county, Nebraska
The above was one of the most delight
ful events known in the history of Five
Points precinct. After congratulations
supper va,K served which broke up what
little formality might have lingered in
the company, and with banter and smile
and "joy unconfined" the guests did
ample justice to a wedding feast that
won instantly the highest compliment of
voice and appetite. The bride is one of
our most favored daughters where all
are fair and favorite, and will lie greatly
missed in a great circle. The groom is a
young man holding a lucrative position
with the Burlington, with headquarters
at Edgemont, 8. D. , where they will
make their future home. May they
have a long and happy life and when the
last sunset shall tint the western hori
zon of life, and kiss the golden sapphire
of closing day, May bride and groom be
together summoned to the Marriage
fec-st of the Lamb by the reveille of an

Equal with the interest of those having claims against the Oovernment ic
that of INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit of valuations because of the
inciompentency or inattention of the attorneys employed to obtain their patenU,
Too much care cannot be exercised in employing competent and reliable tolicitON
to procure patents, for the value of a patent depend greatly, if not entirely, upoa
the care and skill of the attorney.
With a view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless atttomeji
and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid patents, THE PRESS
CLAIMS COMPANY has retained counsel expert in patent practice and is there
fore prepared to
OBTAIN PATENTS, CONDUCT INTKRKERKNCE9, MAKE SPECIAL EXAMINATION,
PRESKCUTK REJKCTKI) CASKS, UKHISTEIt TRADE MAUKSiimlCOPYTIGHTS,
RENDER OPINIONS us to SCOPE anil VALIDITY or PATENTS,
PROSECUTE and DEFEND INKHINOEM ENT SUITS,
If you have an invention on hand send THE PRESS CLAIMS COMPANY
sketch or photograph thereof, together with a brief description of the important
features, and you will be at once advised as to tlio best course to pursue. Models
are not hecessary unless the invention is of a complicated nature. If othara art
infringing on your rights, or if you are charged with infringement by othara, rab
mit the 'matter to us for a reliable OriJJION before acting on the matter.
