Athrough the opening 10 into the distributer 2. Upon entering the distributer 2 most of the air flows around thecliimney'20 to the opening 12 Where it mingles with the medithe Walls 14 and 15 t-o the opening v12. A.

small portion of the fresh air which enters the distributer 2 through the opening 10 flows through the small openings25iand 26 into the medication chamber 18, thereby causing a steady fiovv of thev medicated l.fumes out of the opening 22 in the chimney.

It is obvidus that, if desired, the medication device may be omittedand a suitable cover,I similar in form to the bottom Iot' the medication chamber, may-be usedl to close the openings 17 and 25 -in the bottom of the distributor. In such case-the air current entering the distributer 2 will ow against the bottom 11 of the distributer. and be divided by the trails 111 and 15 into a ,spray which will der? out of the enlarged o ning 12 against the upper lip and direc-t y vbeneath the nostrils.
