, UNITED STATES CHARLES HARRY HOUSE, OF ARKANSAS CITY, KANSAS.

rouu'ranv BRUSH.

Application filed July 24, 1925 Serial No. 45,769.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that T, CHARnEs HARRY HOUSE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Arkansas City, in the county of Cowley and State of Kansas, have invented certain new and useful llm rovements in Fountain Brushes, of which t e following is a specification.

My invention relates to fountain brushes, adapted for use as tooth brushes, while not necessarily restricted to such use.

to provide means whereby-a tube of tooth paste may be attached to the shank of thetooth brush and the tooth paste supplied to the brush head, as desired, near its working surface. V

A further object of the invention is to provide a brush of the above mentioned character which is simple in construction, cheap to manufacturastrong and durable.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the followingdescription.

lln the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification and in which like numerals are-employed to designate like parts throughout the same,

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a fountain brush embodying my invention,

Figure 2 is a plan view of the same,

Figure 3 is a longitudinal section taken on line 3-3 of Figure 2.

Figure 4 is an end elevation of the coupling element or frame, and,

Figure 5 is a side elevation of the tube,

parts in section.

ln the draw ngs, wherein for the purpose of illustration is shown a preferred ern 'bodimentofmy invention, a tooth brush is shown, embodying a back 10, carrying bristles 1,1. This back and bristles constitute a brush head. The back ltl'is carried by a shortened handle or shank 12, as shown. Thisshanlr is preferably fiat. The numeral 13 designates acoupling or frame, as a whole, embodying a forward the rear end of elliptical socket 14, receiving h f h e ottomot is the handle or shank 12;. 'll

socket is provided with an opening 15, for

a purpose to be described. The numeral 16 designates a tube receiving socket or ring, which is rigidly attached to the socket M by spaced arms 17 or the like.

.The back and handle 12 are provided with a groove 18, which leads at its forward end into a transverse groove'19, passing through the central portion of the back 10. The groove 18 terminates at its rear end, at the point 20, and leads into an opening 21, formed in the rear end of the handle or shank. 12.

Adapted to extend longitudinally within the groove 18 is a preferably rigid feed tube 22, which may be formed of metal, or any other suitable material. At its forextension 23, arranged at substantially a right angle to the tube. This lateral extension passes through the transverse opening 19, and projects beyond or above the head 10 for a substantial distance, and is screw-threaded, for the reception of a clamp mg nut 24-, which holds the tube in firm engagement with the bottom wall of the groove. The lateral extension 23 carries a flexible tube 25, formed 'of rubber or the like, which is arranged within a space between the bristles and extends to the upper or working ends of the bristles. If desired, a removable plug 26 may be inserted within the free end of the tube 25. This tube is soft and flexible and will not injure the gums. At its rear end, the supply tube 22 passes through the opening 15 and projects rearwardly therebeyond, and is screwthreaded, for engagement within the screwthreaded opening 27 of a coupling cap 28.

' lhis coupling cap is of the shape and size to receive the screw-threaded end 29\ ofward end of the tooth paste tube 30 projects into and is held within the ring or socket 16, as shown. 7 v I,

lit is preferred that the tooth paste tube 30 be longitudinally stiflenech'and for this purpose a ll-shaped reinforcing element or wire 31 may be placed within the tube 80, during its manufacture. This will prevent the tube bending, but will permit of its being flattened, for forcing the contents from the same.

In use, with the partsassembled, as shown in the drawings, the plug 26 is removed and pressure applied to the tooth paste tube Y I ward end, this feed tube is bent into a lateral An important ob ect of the 1nvent1on 1s lid 30, and the tooth through the tube 22, and tube 25, to or at the upper surface of the bristles 11. The brush head is employed in the usual manner in cleaning the teeth.

It'is to be understood that the form of my invention herewith shown and described is to be taken as a preferred example of the same, and that such changes in the shape, size, and arrangement of parts may be re sorted to as do not depart from the spirit;

of my invention or the scope of the subjoinedclaims I Havingthus described my invention, I claim:

1. A fountain tooth brush embodying a brush head comprising-a back and bristles carried by the back, said back having a longitudinal groove and a transverse 0pening, a feed tube arranged within the longitudinal groove and having a transverse extension passing through and beyond the transverse opening, a clamping nut carried by thetransverse extension and engaging the back, a flexible tube mounted upon the endiof the transverse extension and leading through the working face of the bristles, a socket receiving the rear end of the back and having an opening formed therein to receive the'feed tube, a tooth paste tube receiving socket connected with the first named socket, and a coupling cap having screwthreaded-engagement with the rear end of the said tube and adapted to receive and have a screw-threaded engagement with the screw-threaded 'neck ofthe tooth paste tube. a

2, A fountain tooth brush em odying a brush head comprising a back and bristles paste will discharge carried thereby, transverse opening, a feed tube extending longitudinally of the back and having a transverse extension passing through the i s transverse opening, a clamping nut carried by the transverse extension, afiexible tube tube and serving to clamp the socket upon said back, said coupling cap being adapted to receive the screw-threaded neck of a tooth paste tube, and a second socket to receive the tooth paste tube having connection with the first named socket.

3. A fountain tooth brush embodying a brush llead comprising a back and bristles carried thereby, said back having a transverse opening, a feed tube extending longitudinally of the back and having a transverse extention passing through the transverse opening, the rear end of the feed tube extending beyond said back, a socket receiving the rear end of the back and having the feed tube passing therethrough, a coupling cap having a screw-threaded opening to receive the rear end of thefeed tub and toclamp the socket upon said back, said coupling 'cap being adapted for screwthreaded engagement with the neck of a tooth paste tube, and a tooth paste tube receiving socket carried by the first named socket.
