Contested Patents.

It is significant that of five patent actions recently heard and decided in the New Zealand Supreme Court, the patent involved in each case has bcei declared bad. The specification of each bad patent was prepared either by the inventor himself or by some other unskilled person.

This was the case in the recent infringement action of Osborne v. Home heard lately in Christchurch. Here, what has been a most valuable patent in whllsinking apparatus, was declared ro be bad after being in force for over seventeen years.

It should therefore be borne in mind u uut to succeed as a patentee, the first thing to be done is to obtain a properly drawn specification. If a new thing io properly clnimed, nothing on earth can upset it; and the best firm to consult for the purpose is Htnry Hughes', which handles more than half the entire patent businfss from Canterbury, Mr Newton, who is specially equipped to ad\iae and complete instructions in Christ hurcb, can always be seen at the firm's cffi -ep, 183 Hereford Street. 6 0
