Thesleeve 2 isinternally jscrew t-hreaded, as shown at 1, to permit connection therewith of a water supply pipe and also to receive therein the threaded cylindrical'body '5- of the valve structure which controls the flow of the water into the upper drinl'zing bowl 6.

v The upper drinking bowl v6-is smaller in 'diameter than the lower overflow bowl 1, and it may have a plurality of'slight' cut-away portions]? in its upper edge and outer surface to facilitate the drinking or overflow ofvwater from the upper drinking bowl'6 into the lower overflow bowl 1.

'The upper projectingend of the valve 5 is of substantially'the same diarneter' 'as theinnermost bore of'the threadsin the collar 8fof the bowl 6, so as to serve as a guide when replacing the bowl 6 after it-has been removed, thereby materially increasing'the longevity of the device by eliminating liability of improper engagement of the threads. Ifiit is so desired, a gasket 7 or washer may be placed between the-collars-2'and SI W i n is, or course, tote understood, that the I invention may beconstructed in @various other manners andfthe-parts associated in diflierent relations, and-thereforel' donot desire to be limited in any manner, except as set forth in thecl'aims hereunto appended.
