ST. LOUIS, rssounr scnnnnnn wrnnow Application filed arcus,

- This'inVentiOn relates to windows, and

more particularly to the application of roller screens thereto. One of the principalobgects ofthepresent invention isto provide roller H screens for windows'whioh can be easily and cheaply applied. Other objects are to con- 'ce'al the roller-screen-in the raised position thereof; to provide means for stretching the screen totake up the slack therein in the lowered positionthereof; and to provide for durability, simplicity and cheapness of construction, ease of assembly and operation and compactness'of design. The invention consists in the screened window construction,

and in the combination and arrangements of 1 parts hereinafter described.

' In the" accompanying drawings, which form part of this specification and wherein like symbolsrefer to like parts Wherever they 20, i 1 1 i i 1 occur,'-m a i Fig. 1 1s aninterlor sidevlew ofa screened wind'ow construction embodying my inven- -tion; 1 a

A V p e ln the accompanying drawings, my invention' I is shown in connection with an out- ,wardly -swinging double casement window f but the invention is applicable to other types of windows havingsliding sashes. Said Wm- 35.

adapted, in the closed position of the sash hingedon said memberyto overlap the outside edge of the inner side rail of said sash.

The head member 3 of the window frame A preferably comprises a hollow casing or housing which extends from a mb member to amb' member and has an open ng n its bottom adapted to be closed by meansof a closure plate 7 whichis removably secured to said head member by screwsor other fastening members 8. The inside edge ofthe closure plate? ternnnatesshort of theins de edge ofthe openingin' the bottom of the head member. thereby forminga longitudinal slot 9 in the bottom ofsaicl head member which communicates with the chamber therein. The closure plate is also providedwith a depending flange 10 adapted to form a stop for thetop rails of the sashesu The inner and outerlower sideedgesof the head member are provided with flanges thatare shaped "to form ornamental beads as molds 11.

"Metal inside stops 12 of substantiallychannel-shaped section are secured to the sash opposing faces of the jamb members 2 in position to limit the inward swinging movement of the sashes. The inside edge portion of each jamb member is provided adjacent to the inside face of the insidestop 12 with a fiange 13 adapted to cooperate with said stop to 'form a chamber or recess 14 which extends longitudinally of said jamb member from the head member to the sill member. The flange 13 terminates short of the inside corner of slopingoutsideportion 1 5 and a horizontally disposed upwardly oilset inside portion a 16. An inverted channelshaped stop 17 rests on and is secured to the upwardly oflset inside jportion 16 ofthefsill member l and has an upwardly ofiset portion 18 provided along its'inside margin withfla depending flange Located within the hollow head member 13 ofi thei casement window frame A is a roller member, and a wir'escreen "cloth 22 secured I to and Wound on said spring roller The m Wire screen Works through the longitudinal slot 9 provided therefor between-the inner edge of thecclosure plate 7 for the head member and the adjacent edge of the roller receiving opening therein ;-a nd the side marginal portions'of said screen extend-through 'fthe guide jslotsr 1 1-? into-the 1 longitudinal ree ;cess sin t-he .-;opposing fa ce's of the amb memberswf The loWerorf freeedge of the ire screenclothes reinforced and stiffened by m 1 means of a strip 23 of sheet met-al; and a suitable screen pull Qliis secured thereto ifor raisingsand; lowering; the screen; As shown in the ;.dra'wings;i the screen pu'll 24 is ,pro-
