Storage-Condenser and Lint-Cotton Conveyer.
Patent for an improvement on a previous patent application (Serial No. 552,724), of which Patterson was an assignee. The improved and simply designed machine has a variety of assets, the main goal being to produce bats of uniformly thick and clean cotton.
Patent for a life-boat that improves on a previous patent (No. 512,591) for a hydraulic propelling device and adapts the jet propulsion means to a life boat. The life-boat is made to have compartments that, when one compartment gets crushed, the others remain afloat. The water goes into the stove or crushed compartment and can be used to propel the boat forward. The boat also has a system of bulkheads on the roof of the boat, each independent of the others and has valved pipes. Independent oil-holding tanks connected with valved pipes to the hydraulic main pipes, and with valved pipes going outside the boat so they can be emptied in case of emergency.

Storage-Condenser and Lint-Cotton Conveyer.
Patent for a storage-condenser and lint-cotton conveyor. It forms lint-cotton into a bat so it can be delivered to a baling machine. with this invention, "a battery or batteries of gins can continuously discharge lint-cotton to a mechanism for conveying the same to a point in juxtaposition to cotton baling or pressing mechanism, and the necessity of stopping the gins during the time the bale is being tied, where a single press-box, or single pressing mechanism is used, is avoided, thus enabling the gins to continuously operate even when a single press-box or single baling or pressing mechanism is employed" (lines 18-28). Lint-cotton discharged from a gin is stored while a bale is being tied or pressed, and the bat the lint-cotton conveyor produces is even so the density of the bale is even. Air can escape from the bat-forming apparatus, eliminating dust from the cotton.
Patent for a knee-pad used while picking cotton, berries, or gardening. It protects the knee from dampness, stones, roots, etc. The pad goes on the knee, and two wooden braces are on the sides. A strap goes around the user's shoe, and the bolts were the pad is attached to the braces also has string where the operator ties the brace to himself.
Ice-Cream Freezer.
Patent for an ice-cream freezer which can also be used as a churn, with an improved drum that revolves and its lower half sitting in ice or hot or cold water. It has a central shaft and flat heads on the ends of the drum so it can rotate.
