REISSUE OF OLD PATENTS. The three years' term, allowed by Sec. 5, Art. 27, of the patent law, for the reissue of patents, will expire upon July 1, 1897, and patentees holding patents granted under the old law for short terms, who wish to exchange them for fifteen year patents under the provisions of the new law, must file their applications at ONCE.

It should be noticed that upon the filing of the application for reissue, an examination is made as to the novelty and utility of the invention, such examination being made

cation for patent was filed, the new patent being granted or refused according to the merits of the case.

The duration of the new patent issued will be fifteen years, counting from the date of the issue of the first, or original patent.

The reissued or new patent will be subject to all the conditions and requirements of the present patent law, including the payment of annual taxes and working.

The date of the issue of the original patent will serve as a basis for the calculation of the taxes, for example, if the original patent was issued July 1, 1893, the taxes will be payable annually on or before July 1st of each year, and in this instance, the annuity due July 1, 1897 would be the fisth years' tax. Our charges for applying for the reissue of patents are :
