Form 127.-Caveat. The petition of A. B., of, in the County of —, and State of —, respectfully represents:

That he has made certain improvements in velocipedes, and that he is now engaged in making experiments for the purpose of perfecting the same, preparatory to applying for letters patent therefor. He therefore prays that the subjoined description of his invention may be filed as a caveat in the confidential archives of the Patent-office.

A. B.

SPECIFICATION.

The following is a description of my newly-invented velocipede, which is as full, clear, and exact as I am able at this time to give, reference being had to the drawing hereto annexed.

This invention relates to that class of velocipedes in which there are two wheels connected by a beam forming a saddle for the rider, the feet being applied to cranks that revolve the front wheel.

The object of my invention is to render it unnecessary to turn the front wheel so much as heretofore, and at the same time to facilitate the turning of sharp curves. This I accomplish by fitting the front and the hind wheels on vertical pivots, and connecting them by means of a diagonal bar, as shown in the drawing, so that the turning of the front wheel also turns the back wheel with a position at an angle with the beams, thereby enabling it easily to turn a curve.

In the drawing, A is the front wheel, B the hind wheel, and C the standards extending from the axle of the front wheel to the vertical pivot a in the beam b, and D is the cross-bar upon the end of a, by which the steering is done. The hind wheel B is also fitted with jaws c and a vertical pivot, d.

A. B. Witnesses: C. D., E. F.

[The form of oath will be substantially that provided for original applications, except that, as a caveat can only be filed by a citizen, or an alien who has resided for one year last past in the United States, and made oath of his intention to become a citizen, the oath should be modified accordingly.]

REGISTRATION OF PRINTS AND LABELS. By an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1874, it is provided that certain prints and labels may be registered in the Patent-office.

SEC. 3. That in the construction of this Act the words "engraving," "cut," and "print" shall be applied only to pictorial illustrations or works connected with the fine arts, and no prints or labels designed to be used for any other articles of manufacture shall be entered under the copyright law, but may be registered in the Patent-office. And the Commissioner of Patents is hereby charged with the supervision and control of the entry or registry of such prints or labels, in conformity with the regulations provided by law as to copyright of prints, except that there shall be paid for recording the title of any print, or label, not a trade-mark, six dollars, which shall cover the expense of furnishing a copy of the record under the seal of the Commissioner of Patents, to the party entering the same.

Sec. 5. That this Act shall take effect on and after the first day of August, eighteen hundred and seventy-four.

Approved, June 18, 1874.

By the word "print,” as used in the said Act, is meant any device, picture, word or words, figure or figures (not a trade-mark) impressed or stamped directly upon the articles of manufacture, to denote the name of the manufacturer, or place of manufacture, style of goods, or other matter.

By the word “label,” as therein used, is meant a slip or piece of paper, or other material, to be attached in any manner to manufactured articles, or to bottles, boxes, and packages containing them, and bearing an inscription (not a trade-mark), as, for example, the name of the manufacturer or the place of manufacture, the quality of goods, directions for use, etc.

By the words "articles of manufacture,” to which such print or label is applicable by said act, are meant all vendible commodities produced by hand, machinery, or art.

But no such print or label can be registered unless it properly belong to an article of commerce, and be as above defined; nor can the same be registered as such print or label when it amounts in law, to a technical trade-mark.

To entitle the owner of any such print or label to register the same in the Patent-office, it is necessary that five copies
