7 Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented May 27,1913.

Application filed A rils, 1912. Serial No. 689,278.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, LOUIS A. CORNELIUS, a citizen of the United States of America. residing at Grand Rapids, in the county of Kent and State of-Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Sanitary Drinking-Cups; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to'which it appertains tomake and use the same.

My invention relates to improvements in sanitary drinking cups, and its object is to provide a device ada ted to be readily attached to an ordinary aucet, and form a water tight joint therewith when in use, and also.

adapted to be moved out of the way when the faucet is to be used in the ordinary manner and to provide the device with various new and useful features hereinafter more fully described and particularly pointed out in the claims, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of a device embodying-my invention applied to an ordinary hose bib and adjusted for use; Fig. 2'

th same shown in position when out of use and permitting the faucet to be used in the ordinary way; Fig. 3 is a plan view of the device adjusted as in Fig.1; Fig. 4 a detail partially in vertical section showing more fully the construction of my device, and ad justed as in Fig. 1, and Fig. 5 a detail showlng a modification a-daptiiig the device to be attached to a plain bib.

Like numbers refer to like parts in all of the figures. j

1 represents an ordinary hose bib. 2 a coupling or collar adapted to'be attached to the bib, preferably provided with a gasket 9 to form a water tight joint and a strainer 8 held in proper relation to the end of the bib. This coupling is provided with a lug or projection 3 to which is pivoted an arm 4 oppositely projecting from the pivot. This arm is tubular and provided with a cup-shaped receiving-end adapted to swing under the coupling and enter the lower end of the same in which end there is preferably a gasket of elastic material whereby a water tight joint is formed between the arm and the coupling when the arm is swung to operative position. This arm extends outward and upward and out of alinement with the bib whereby as it is swung about the axis of the pivot to inverted position as shown in Fig. 2 it will swing clear of the bib and alongside of the same. The outer end of this arm terminates water tight joint. When the water is turned on it flows through this tubular arm; escapes from the nozzle 11 and overflows the edge of the cup thus washing the-same and insuring a sanitary drinking cup. When out of use the arm is turned upon the pivot to the position shown in Fig. 2 whereby the recciving end'6 and the drinking cup 5 are inverted which prevents any accumulation of dust or impurities therein.

' To attach the device to a plain bib the coupling is supplied with a bushing 12.0f yieldable material preferably of soft rubber which will fit closely upon the end of the ordinary bib and thus secure the coupling in place thereon and form a water tight joint therebetween. Otherwise the device is the same as for use onthe hose bib.

What I claim is:

1. A sanitary drinking cup comprising a coupling adapted for attachment to a faucet and having a pair of ears projecting therefrom, a tubular arm provided with a lateral projection intermediate its ends pivoted in said ears of the coupling and thereby sus pended by the coupling from the faucet out of alinement with the faucet when out of,

use, said arm having a receiving end adapted to swing into cooperative relation with said coupling when in use, a drinking cup on the other end of said arm, and a handle carried by the arm for manipulating the same on its pivot;

2. A sanitary drinking cup comprising a coupling adapted for attachment to a faucet and having a projection thereon, a tubular when in use. and a drinking cup on the-other arm provided with a projection intermediate end of saidarm.

its ends pivoted to said projection of the In testimony whereof I afiix my signature coupling and thereby'supported below the in presence of two witnesses.

discharge end of the faucet and out of aline- LOUIS A. CORNELIUS. ment with the faucet when out of use, said Witnesses: arm having on end adapted to swing into HAROLD O. VAN ANTWERP,

cooperative relation with said coupling PALMER A. JONES.
