Governor Joseph F. Johnston was in

Before taking the oath of ofllco ho da
Jlvercd A long address, sounding the
keynote df his administratis, which
la tb promote tho development of Ala
bama's resources and litiprdvo tho con
dition bt her people. Speaking of the
resources of tho ntnto ho said:
"With an area of but llttlo moro lhaii
fifty thousand squaro miles, thcro Is no
tcrrlldry or like size in tho known
world so prolific in tho variety of Its
resources; wero n wall erected around
our state, cutting off all access, wo
could produco within our borders
everything necessary for tho comfort
or convenience of man. Great veins
of iron oro nnd scams of coal put at
our command almost boundless re
sources hi fuel, iron, and steel. Splen
did forests of yellow pino hero stand
ready to build homes for millions of
people. Building stono nnd marble,
fire clay, knolln and limo exist In great
abundance; walnut, mnpte, oak, cherry,
nsh and other hard woods awnlf tho
hand of man for manufacture or tho
ndornment of our homes. In the pro
duction of pig iron we tako rank as
the fourth Btato Ih the union; 111 Iron
ore, third; in coal wo stand fifth; in
tho production of cotton, fourth, and
Ih Ita manufacture, fourth. In lumber
wo aro near tho head of the list. It
would ho unjust should I fall to in
cludo in our minerals copper, lead,
graphite, marl and gold; Indeed, tho
only mineral that wo seem to be with
out and to want most is silver. Leav
ing forest and mine nnd coming to our
fields wo find that they produce gen
erously cotton, corn, wheat, rye, oats,
tobacco, rlco and tho grasses and hero
is tho home of tho pear, tho peach, tho
grape and all small fruits. Vegetables
arc grown with great success, and this
Industry is steadily developing. Our
splendid rivers, tho Alabama, Coosa,
Tallapoosa, Wurrlor, Cahaba, Bigbeo
and tho Tennessee, aro tho liquid ar
teries of tho commonwealth, fed by in
numerable creeks, all fruitful in power
to convert our raw products into arti
cles of merchandise. Over 3,000 miles
of railroads traverse our stato from
north to south, and east to west, fur
nishing quick transportation to market
for our products. When we come to
our climate wo find that tho Giver of
all good things has not stayed His
hand, and that Ho haB blessed us with
opportunity to labor twelve months In
the year without detriment to health or
comfort. Indeed, wo can scarcely ap
preciate the blessings we enjoy in this
respect when compared with less fa
vored regions, for even now wo aro
seemingly unconscious that roses nre
blooming in our gardans, and tho fra
grant air is swcot with their perfume.
With a profound gratitude to
tho God of our fathers, thnt our lots
havo been cast in this sunny land, lot
us bosnoch Him to send wnrmth and
vitality and enduring growth into
every field of endeavor, that will make
us strong to accomplish tho things that

menced suit in tho Superior court to

tween Shnrkoy, tho National Athletic
club and others, whose names are not

enough in the chnrges to effect Allen's

opportunity to pass for roasting Presi

Iowa Patent Ofllco Report.
S. P. Lcland of Iowa asks: "Is there
uny law or decision to prevent nny per
son from making and using a patented
article for himself only, although he
have not got permission of the owner?"
Yes. A patent gives tho owner the
oxclusive right to make, vend and use
tho invention for seventeen years. No
person has a right to mako and uso a
patented invention for his own use
without a license If one person could
do so every other person would havo
the same privilege, and a patent for an
invention that can be easily rande
would go Into general use without
profit to tho patentee.
A patent has been allowed to F. C.
Stevens of Sac City, Iowa, for a hose
nozzlo adapted for throwing n straight
solid stream, a radiating spray or sheet
all around, a spray and solid stream at
the same time, or a spray only half way
around, at the pleasure of tho operator.
Valuable information about obtain
ing, valuing and selling patents sent
free to any address.
Printed copies of tho drawings and
specifications of any U. S. Patent sent
upon receipt of 25 cents.
Our practice is not confined to Iowa.
