From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

  Useless \Use"less\, a.
     Having, or being of, no use; unserviceable; producing no good
     end; answering no valuable purpose; not advancing the end
     proposed; unprofitable; ineffectual; as, a useless garment;
     useless pity.
     [1913 Webster]
  
           Not to sit idle with so great a gift
           Useless, and thence ridiculous.          --Milton.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Syn: Fruitless; ineffectual.
  
     Usage: {Useless}, {Fruitless}, {Ineffectual}. We speak of an
            attempt, effort, etc., as being useless when there are
            in it inherent difficulties which forbid the hope of
            success, as fruitless when it fails, not from any such
            difficulties, but from some unexpected hindrance
            arising to frustrate it; as, the design was rendered
            fruitless by the death of its projector. Ineffectual
            nearly resembles fruitless, but implies a failure of a
            less hopeless character; as, after several ineffectual
            efforts, I at last succeeded.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  Useless are all words
                  Till you have writ "performance" with your
                  swords.
                  The other is for waiving.         --Beau. & Fl.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  Waiving all searches into antiquity, in relation
                  to this controversy, as being either needless or
                  fruitless.                        --Waterland.
            [1913 Webster]
  
                  Even our blessed Savior's preaching, who spake
                  as never man spake, was ineffectual to many.
                                                    --Bp.
                                                    Stillingfleet.
            [1913 Webster] -- {Use"less*ly}, adv. --
            {Use"less*ness}, n.
            [1913 Webster]
