Every such last-mentioned application may, if the Registrar at any time so direct, bear the date of the original application or such date between the date of the original application and the date of the application in question, as the Registrar may direct, and shall other- wise be proceeded with as a substantive application in the manner prescribed by the Act.

Where the Registrar has required or allowed any application or specification or drawings or any of them to be amended as aforesaid, such application shall, if the Registrar at any time so direct, bear such date, subsequent to the original date of the application and not later than the date when the amendment was made, as the Registrar shall consider reasonably necessary to give sufficient time for the subsequent procedure relating to such application.

(2) Where the same applicant has put in two or more pro- visional specifications for inventions which he believes to be cognate or modifications one of the other and the Registrar is of opinion that such inventions are not cognate or modifications one of the other, the applicant may divide the complete specification left in

connection with his applications into such num.ber of complete specifications as may be necessary to enable the applications to be proceeded with as two or more separate applications for patents for different inventions.

13. The statement of the invention claimed, with which a complete specification must end, shall be clear and succinct as well as separate and distinct from the body of the specification.

DRAWINGS 14. Drawings, when furnished, must accompany the provisional

15. Drawings must be made on pure white, hot-pressed, rolled, or calendered strong paper of smooth surface, good quality, and medium thickness, without washes or colours, in such a way as to admit of being clearly reproduced on a reduced scale by photo- graphy. Mounted drawings may not be used.

16. Drawings must be on sheets which measure 13 inches from top to bottom and are either from 8 inches to 8i inches or from 16 inches to 16t inches wide, the narrower sheets being preferable. A clear margin must be left half an inch from the edges of the sheet.

If there are more figures than can be shown on one of the smaller sized sheets, two or more of these sheets should be used in preference to employing the larger size. When an exceptionally large figure is required, it should be continued on subsequent sheets. There is no limit to the number of sheets that may be sent in, but no more sheets

17. Drawings must be prepared in accordance with the following requirements-

(a) They must be executed with absolutely black ink.

(b) Each line must be firmly and evenly drawn, sharply defined, and of the same strength throughout.

(c) Section lines, lines for effect, and shading lines must be as few as possible, and must not be closely drawn.

(d) Shading lines must not contrast too much in thickness with the general lines of the drawing.

(e) Sections and shading must not be represented by solid black or washes.

(f) They must be on a scale sufficiently large to show the invention clearly, and only so much of the apparatus, machine, etc., may appear as affects this purpose. If the scale is given, it must be drawn, and not denoted by words. No dimensions may be marked on the drawings.

(g) The figures must be drawn in an upright position in regard to the top and bottom of the sheet.

(h) Reference letters and numerals, and index letters and numerals used in conjunction therewith, must be bold, distinct and not less than one-eighth of an inch in height. The same letters or numerals must be used in different views of the same parts. Where the reference letters or numerals are shown outside the figure, they must be connected with the parts referred to by fine lines.

18. Drawings must bear the name of the applicant (and, in the Drawings to .case of drawings left with a complete specification after one or more =i=e of provisional specifications, the numbers and years of the applications) etc., ~ut.;'o in the left-hand top corner; the number of sheets of drawings sent, de~Ptlve ,and the consecutive number of each sheet, in the right-hand' top rna er. -corner: and the signature of the applicant or his agent in the right- hand bottom corner.
