Never Asked For a Patent. "Fifty-three years ago I invented the winnowing mill now in common use," says Moses Gilman of South Sanger-ville. Sanger-ville. "If I had had it patented, I might have realized a fortune from it, as all the machines that have been built since have been upon the same principle, Even the thrashing machine separators, which have superseded the old time flail, use the winnowing mill substantially substan-tially as I first made it for clearing the chaff from the grain. I have invented many other things that were valuable, but I never asked for a patent" Mr. "Gilman, though ?7 years old, is still at it inventing, and says if his strength and reason hold out he is going to produce pro-duce some valuable new ideas yet.
