and blurring their goggles and, eye-glasses.

Also in other instances it is necessary and essential that perspiration be keptout of the workmens eyes and from dropping into or on the material on which they are working. The present invention has for its object the provision of an absorbent pad adaptedto be worn on the forehead of workmen so as to absorb the perspiration and prevent it running down onto their goggles or eyeglasses, or from in anyway interfering with their vision, and also to prevent the perspiration dropping into or onto the material being worked- I 1 Another object is to provide a novel form of pad having a detachable elastic band for h lding the pad in position.

A further object is to provide a pad having the novel design, construction and combination of parts hereinafter described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings- Figure 1 is a view showing the device'in position on the head of a wearer. Figure 2 is a plan of a pa'dc'onstructed in accordance with my invention.

o'f the-pad opened to show the construction.

Figure 4. is a longitudinal sectional view,

through one of the spring clips. 1

Figure 5 is an end elevation of one of the,

sprin clips.

Refie of the gauze covering 3 the overlapped lon-.

gitudinal edgesand folded ends of the covering will tend to intermesh and stay in assembled position until the pad is to be put into use.

An elastic band onstrag spring clamps or clips 6 provided with rrmg moreparticularly to the draw-' is provided for I 'forgri-pping the pad. A spring 9 normally forces the jaws into closed or gripping position.

Oneof the jaws 7 is provided with an extension or tab 10 which is provided with an opening 12 through which the end of a band or strap 6 is passed;

The ends of the strap 6, after being passed through the openings 12, are folded back along the strap forming a loop 14 and are secured by a wrapping of tape or other adhesive material 15.

The clips B are adapted to be engaged or clamped over-each end of the pad adjacent the longitudinal center thereof,-and serve the dual purpose of securing or attaching the band or strip 6 to the pad, andalso serve as the sole means for securing or locking the overlapped longitudinal edges and folded ends of the covering 3 together to prevent the displacement of said covering while the pad is 1n use.

When the pad A becomes soiled or filled with perspiration, the clamps or clips B are disengaged from the pad and a new pad sub-- stituted, so that the samestrap' may be used for several pads.

I claim-- A perspiration pad comprising, in combination, a flexible body. portion. composed of Figure 3 is a partial plan with the covering an absorbent filler enclosed in a gauze cover, said cover being wrapped aroundsaid filler ith its longitudinal edges overlapped and. i s ends foldedback along the sides of said body,- and means for holding said pad upon the forehead of the wearer, said means com prising a pair of spring clips detachably clamped on the ends of said pad body and an elastic straphaving its ends secured to said clips and eing adapted to pass around the back of the wearers head. said clips being clamped on said pad body adjacent its longitudinal center and providing the sole means for securing the overlapped longitudinal edges and folded ends of said cover together to prevent the displacement of said cover while said pad is in use.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto signed my name.
