MEDICINAL srnAYnre :onvron.

Application filed June 5,

efficient and reliable device for spraying the 7 body for the purpose of treating the same medicinally or for other purposes. H

Further, said invention has for its object to provide a device in which the medicinal substance is placed in a container thereof. and in which the dissolving fluid or liqu' 'l is forced through the substance in order to absorb or dissolve the same, and the solution or mixture then caused to issue from the tie vice in a number of fine or streams. Furthensaid invention has for its object to provide a device of the character specified in whichthe dissolvingfluid. wh I1 is directed. into thorough and intimate contact with a medicinal or other substance to ab-- sorb or dissolve the same, is caused to pass through the device in the form of a constant stream continuously supplying fresh fluid thereto.

Further, said invention has-for its object to provide a device which may be readily disassembled and assembled to till the same with a medicinal or other substance, .or for the purpose of cleaning the same.

Other objects will in part be obvious and in part be pointed out hereinafter.

To the attainment of the aforesaid objects and ends my invention consists in the novel features of construction, and in the combination, connection and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described and then pointed out in the claims.

In the acompanying drawings forming part of this specification- Figure 1 is a side elevation showing and embodying my said invention;

Fig. 2 is an enlarged side elevation therethereof, and

Fig. 4c is an end view thereof' withparts broken away and with parts in section.

In said drawing is illustrated an outer casing 10 which, to permit access thereto. is constructed in two parts, and consists of a base 11 and a top 12 detchably secured to the base l lby the threaded connection 13.

Projecting rearwardly from the base 11 is a sleeve or handle portion 1 1 provided at its outer'end with a thickened portion 15 having in position within the casing 10.

one form of device constructed accordindto,

interior threads thereon for a purpose'to be described. A flexible tube or hose 16 is shown attached to the outer endof the sleeve 14 for the purpose of supplying water or other fluid'to the device. The opposite end of the member 12 has a rounded-perforated l or foraminated portion 1 7 constituting an outlet through which the fluid or wateris caused to issue in the form of a spray or shower.. I V Y Locatedwithin the casing 10 is a perforated, or foraininated receptacle or container 18 of reduced size for receiving the substance -tobe absorbed by or dissolved by the fluid as it passes through the device. For the purpose of permitting; access to the interior thereof the container 18 comprises a base 19 and a top 20 detachably secured theret by a threaded connection 21. Secured tothe rear of the base 19 and communicating with the interiorof the container 18 is a conduit or pipe 22 of reduced diameter compared to sleeve 14. The outer end 23 of the conduit 22 is threaded and extends into the sleeve 14 and engages with the screw threads on part 15 to provide a fluid tight connection, and serving to support the container 18 duly v The container 18 is spaced inwardly of casing 10 on all sides providing a free spac- 24. therebetween at the ends and sides there of. v

The parts above described maybe of any suitable materialwhich does not easily corrode or become affected by the liquid to be used. They may also be of any desired shape, although the same are illustrated in the drawing as cylindrical and concentrically arranged. V r y The casing '10 is preferably perforated at the end. 17. as shown, although such perforations may be located elsewhere thereon as may be found convenient or desirable. The container is preferably perforated. or to" raminated over substantially the entire surface thereof to permit of the readyand continuous flow of fluid or rater therethrough and iito the space 2 1, and then through the outlet at the end 17.

The terms perforated and foraminated and the like, as used herein, are understood. in abroad sense. For instance, the con 'tainer 18 may be made'of a fine mesh wire nettlng or of a suitable textile material, any

of which, while retaining the solid materialin place, "will. readily permit of the fluid to pass therethrough. Such materials are to be considered perforated or foraminated as herein understood.

When it is desired to use the device, the parts 12 and Q areremoved and the latter filled with a substance, such for instance as one having medicinal properties for reliev ing or treating the condition of the user.

The parts are then replaced and the water turned on. Since'the tube 16 is in direct communication with the conduit 22 the water is forced through the substance in the con tainer, thereby absorbing or dissolving some part thereof. The minture or solution is then caused to pass through the perforations therein in said container 20 and into the space 24-, and issue from the end 17. The device can be conveniently held by the sleeve 14 which serves as a handle to spray or shower the part to be treated.

hen it is desired to clean the same. the part 18 is removed and the container unscrewed at and removed from the sleeve M, the relative sizes ot the diameters of sleeve 1a and conduit 22 being sui'ricient to permit the removal without damaging the threads at the end 23.

The device embodying my invention permits of the ready assembly and disassembly of the parts, and is eiiicient in operation, as the same is not easily liable to become clogged, or prevent the ready passage of the water therethrough.

It will be observed that in my device the receptacle 20 is spaced at all places from the casing so that the space or chainl, r Qi completely surrounds the receptacle. Furthermore the pipe 22 is likewise spaced from the sleeve 14, thus the space 24 within the casing proper communicates with the space between the pipe 22 and the sleeve 14. This arrangement is of particular advantagein that should any sediment form in the space 24: that would tend to clog the outlet perforations in theend 17, the user can prevent the clogging by simply tilting the instrument with the end 17 upward. slightly so that the sediment can gravitate into the space between the pipe 22 and neck 14, thus enabling the user to continue with the use of the instrument for the time being without. the outlet apertures being partially clogged. lhen, after he has finished the treatment with (he zi'iparatus it is a simple matter to disconnect the parts 12 and fill--22 to clean out the accumulated sediment re terred to.

Having thus described my said invention what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A. device of the character described comprising a casing having an outlet therein, and a reduced tubular portion constituting a handle adapted to be connected to a,

nated receptacle contained witnin said cas' conduit for supplying a fluid, a toraminated receptacle contained within said casing spaced inwardly from the walls thereof and adapted to receive a solid substance, and a conduit connected to said container for conducting said fluid into the same to act upon the substance therein; said conduitextending into and secured at its end to the end of said reduced tubular portion and rigidly supporting said container in spaced relation to said casing, said conduit itself being spaced from said tubular portion except at the place where it is secured, substantially as specified.

2. A device of the character described comprising a casin including a base and a perforated top detachably secured thereto, a sleeve extending outwardly from said base and interiorly threaded atthe outer end. ot the same, a foraminated container within said casing spaced inwardly from the walls thereot', and including a base and a top detachably secured to said last named has and conduit connected to said last named base and communicating with the interior of said container; said'conduit extending into and spaced from said sleeve and having the outer end thereof exteriorly threaded to engage the threads of said sleeve and provide a fluid tight detachable connection, whereby said container is supported within said casing in spaced relation thereto, stantialiy as specified.

A device of the character desci' ed comprising a casing having a bulbous perforated outlet end to act as a sprayer, casing at the end opposite the outlet end having a reduced sleeve constituting a handle, the end of said sleeve having an internally threaded thickened portion, said sleeve also being adapted for connection to a conduit for supplying a fluid; a formali If flu:

and adapted to receive a solid substance; means rigidly sustaining said receptacle spaced all over away from said casing, said means comprising a pipe secured at one end to an end of said receptacle and projecting into said sleeve, said pipe having its other end threadcd to engage said internally threaded thickened portion, said pipe oeing of lesser (fliameter than said sleeve. all being arrangedwhereby to provide a tree and uninterrupted space at all places between the inner surit'aces of said casing and the outer surfaces of said receptacle and betweei'rsaid pipe and said sleeve save at said thickened portion -tor the purposes specifier.
