EDWARD ooomvon, or NEW navmr, ooziimorrcur.

sonr-con'mmnn.

To all whom it may concern: 1

Be it known that I, EDWARD OCoNNoR, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the city of New Haven, in the county of New Haven and State of Connecticut, have invented a new and Improved Soap-Container, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

This invention relates to improvements in soap containers, and more articularly to a soap container adapted to orm a part of a douche or internal bath device, which com-' pels the water to pass through the soap to render the water soapy and supply such p soapy water in such quantity as may be desired. V

It is a well known fact that soapy water is desirable for internal baths and douches, but the difiiculty heretofore has been to obtain the same in any convenient manner and in an unlimited quantity. To supply' this need my invention was devised as will more fully hereinafter appear.

With these and other objects in view, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts as will be more fully hereinafter described and pointed out in the claims.

The accompanying drawing is a view in longitudinal section illustrating my improvements.

1 represents a casing having an outlet nipple 2 at its lower end for attachmentto a hose 2 which may have any suitable nozzle (not shown) at its free end for insertion into the rectum of the user.

The upper end of the casing 1 has an internal annular enlargement 3, the latter having an external recess, the wall of which is screwthreaded as shown at 4.

The enlargement 3 is made with an annular recess at its inner edge as shown at 5, and a contalner 6 is located in the casing,

spaced from the walls thereof and is pro- Speciflcation of Letters Patent.

ing a gasket 11 against the casing tomake I the device watertight.

The cap jecting down into the container and normally having its lower end embedded in soap-powder or-particles 13. The upper inlet end of tube 12' has an inlet nipple; .14: adapted to be connected bya hose 15 with a faucet (not shown).

In operation the water from tube 12 rises through the soap 13 and escapes in the form of soapy water, through the perforations 8 into casing 1, and thence flows through niple 2 and hose 2 to the point of use.

While I have referred to the material in the container 6 as soap it is obvious that 9 has an integral tube 12 pro Patented Aug. 17, 1920. Application filed August 26, 1919. .serial No. 319,954. 7

and I therefore would have it understood 'that. the device might be employed with soap, oil, or any other material which will impregnate the water and which can be used advantageously.

Various slight' changes might be made in the general form of the parts described without departing from my invention, and hence I do not limit myself to the precise details set forth but consider myself at liberty to make such slight changes and alterations as fairly fall within the spirit and scope of the appended claims.

I claim: a

1. A device of the character described, comprising a casing having an outlet n1p ple' in its lower end, a container fitting the upper end of the casing projecting into the casing and spaced throughout the greater portion of its length from the wall of the casing, said container having perforations in its -wall at its upper portion only communicating with said space between the container and the casing, a cover fitting the casing, and an inlet tube carried by the cover and projecting to a point near the bottom of the container.

2. A device of the character described, comprising a casing having an outlet nipple in its lower end, a container fitting the upper end of the casing projecting into the casing and spaced throughout the greater portion of its length from the wall of the casing, said container having perforations in its Wall at its upper portion only communicating with said space between the container and the casing, a cover fitting the cas ing, an inlet tube carried by the cover and projecting to a point near the bottom of the container, said casing having a screw threaded upper end, and an internally screw threaded flange on the cover engaging the screw threads of the casing. v

3. A device of the character stated, comprising a casing having an internal annular recess at its upper end, a container in the casing having an annular flange fitting in said recess, a cap secured on the upper end of the casing and holding the flange of the container in the recess of the casing, an inlet tube on the cap projecting into the container, and said container having perforations in the upper portion only of its wall 15 communicating with the casing.

4. A device of the character stated, comprising a casing having an outlet nipple at its lower end, and having internal and ex ternal recesses at its upper end, a container having its upper end supported in the inner recess at the upper end of the casing and having perforations in the upper portion only of its wall, a cap fitting in the external recess at the upper end of the casing, and an inlet tube in the cap projecting into the container and having a nipple at its upper end.
