' 1 Thelfigu're is a'--longitudinal sectionf'of an applicator constructed, in accordance with the same comprising the novel form, combination andarrangement of parts her-elnatter more fully described,'shown in the aeco' n panying drawing'and claimed. v

In the drawing the present invention; a V

' Now; having particular reference. to the drawing, my prostatelapplicator constitutes the prov s on of a relatively short tube "5, of. fibre or hard rubber or metal preferably d 7 that is externally-"threaded at-its forward endlfor receiving the open internally threaded end of an elongated bulbous shaped head Gthat is pointed at its forwardendfor iafcilitating the easy insertion of the same into the afiected part the outer end of the tube] 5 being formed with a rounded enlargement,-

. or head 7 to act asa closure when inserted. The outer end of thetube 5 is internally threadedfor receiving the threaded end of a Y-pipe 8, the legs '9, andouter ends flexible pipes (not shown), the pipe attachedto the leg 9 being in communication with a source of fluid supply while the fluid that is dischairgedinto the head in the manner hereinafter describedcis adapted to discharge through'the pipe attached to the leg 10.

- "Formed integrally with the dischargeend vof the leg 90f the Y-pipeS is an elongated tube 1 1 that extends through thetubefi and 7 further a ms to provide an applicator of this characterthat maybe I out afiecting the pended claim. a 1 I v Having thus described the invention, what I claim as-new 1 and desire to secure by Let? 10 of which are adapted to have arranged 'th-ereover at their "intowrtheohad 65 he pardon t ereof Within Y said head being formed with openings 12 in order fto permit the fluid to discharge into 7' the head for' heating thesame which heat will be transmitted tofthe glands" being treated." ,Obviously as the fluid discharges. from the tube, the same will pass rearwardly and discharge from the applicator in "the manner as previously described.

The advantages of an applicator of this character willbe appreciated by those skilled I in the medicalart, and even though I have herein shown and described the device as a consistingfof certain detailstructura-l ele- 'ments it is nevertheless to be understood that minor changes may be made 'thereinflwithtersPatent is spirit and scope of the ap-" Asanew article of manufacture, a: rectal applicator for use in'association. With v pros tatic glands, a body including a oint composed of hollow converging branches merging into a; screw threaded neck having supply tube connected with one of saidbranch-esatthe juncture offsaid branches, 8O
