                       A. M. E. Church.                            173

                     HINDU PROVERBS.
 The habits of the cradle will last to the grave.
 The plant that could not be bent when it was a twig will not bend
when it is a branch.
 To acquire science in later years is like dyeing a dirty cloth.
  There is no man who knows everything, there is none who knows
nothing.
  Anybody will say: I have no memory; nobody will say: I have no
sense.
  None is ruined by telling the truth; no one prospers by telling lies.
  Even when a wound is healed a scar will remain.
  If a neighbor's roof catches fire one's own is in danger.
  When the cattle are on one shore, the opposite looks green; when
they are on the opposite shore, the other side looks green.
  A slip of the tongue is worse than a slip of the foot.
  Do not believe all you hear; do not say all you believe.


                HOW TO SECURE A PATENT.
  Application for a patent must be made in writing to the Commission-
er of Patents, Washington. The applicant must also file in the Patent
Office a written description of the invention, and of the process of
making and using it, in such full and exact terms as to enable any
person skilled in the art or science to which it appertains to make,
construct, compound and use the same; and in case of a machine, he
must explain the principle thereof, and the best mode in which he has
contemplated applying that principle, so as to distinguish it from
other inventions, and partially point out and distinctly claim the part,
improvement or combination which he claims as his invention or dis-
covery. The specification and claim must be signed by the inventor
and attested by two witnesses.


                         WOMEN VOTING.
   In the United States women possess suffrage upon equal terms
with men at all elections in four states-in Wyoming, established in
1869; in Colorado, in 1893, in Utah, in 1896, and in Idaho, in 1896.
In 1905 the Kansas and Montana legislatures, in 1906 the Rhode Is-
land legislature rejected bills giving women full suffrage. In June,
1906, Oregon refused to adopt a woman suffrage amendment to its
constitution by a vote of 47,075 to 36,902.  In Kansas women possess
school suffrage, established in 1861, and municipal suffrage established
in 1887.   In 18 additional states women  possess  school suffrage
