On Obtaining Patents.

The first question that presents itself to an inventor after peifecting his idea is, naturally, whom shall I instruct; to secure my patents ; and the answer naturally comes in the name—Henry Hughes. This firm is the oldest in New Zealand, and, what is more important, all instructions for patents are executed in Christchurch, in direct touch with the inventor. Any invention that is new and useful can be patented, and if ifc is an improvement upon something in general use, the success of the invention is assured. If the specification is properly prepared, and the invention combines the above-mentioned conditions, nothing can disturb the monopoly for fourteen years. The firm has just completed another highly successful year's business, in which was handled more than half the entire business of the province. They want your business, and are equipped to complete it quickly and skilfully at the offices, 183 Hereford Street. Obtain Hunry Hughes' frao pamphlet, " Advice to Inventors."
