The imperforate walls of the roller and the stopper preventing the escape from the roller of the water accumulating therein as the result of the melting of the ice.

The handle 2 may be connected to the closed end of the roller 1, and the handle 6 may be connected to the stopper 4, in a manner to permit the roller to rotate with respect to the handles while the instrument is being used. To attain this end, the handle 2 is connected to the end wall 3 of the roller 1 by a spindle 10, and the handle 6 is connected to the stopper A by a spindle 11, as shown in Figure 4. The spindle 10 passes axially through the roller wall 3 and the handle 2, and the ends thereof are upset to provide heads 10a which serve to secure the handle and spindle to the roller 1. V

The spindle 11 extends axially through the stopper 4 and handle 6, and the ends thereof are upset to provide heads 11a which serveto secure the handle and spindle to the stopper. While I have described the principle of the invention, together with the structures, which I now consider the preferred embodiment thereof, it is to be understood that the structures shown are merely illustrative and that such changes may be made, when desired, as fall within the scope of the invention as claimed. What is claimed is 7 1. A massaging instrument comprising a hollow roller open at one end and closed at the other, a handle extending longitudinally from the closed end of the roller, a cylindri cal stopperfor the open end of the roller and providedat its outer side with an annular shoulder and at its inner side with lugs extending outwardly beyond the lateral side 40 thereof, a washer positioned upon the stopper between the lugs and shoulder and'held in placethereby, the stopper being of'considerable thickness and having a snug fit in the open end of the roller, and a handle extending outwardly from the stopper. 7

2. A massaging instrument comprising a hollow roller open at one end and closed at the other, a handle extending longitudinally from the closed end of the roller, a cylindrical stopper for the open end of the roller and having a diameter considerably less than the inner diameter of the roller and provided at its outer side with an annular shoulder and lugs and held in place thereby, thewasher i being of considerable thickness and having a snug fit inthe roller, and a handle extending longitudinally from the stopper, the handles I being of'cirfcular formation incross section and increasing in diameter from their inner to their outer ends.

'3. A massaging instrument comprising a cylindrical roller of hollow construction closed at one end, the roller being provided at its other end with an opening having a diameter equal to the inner diameter of the roller to facilitate the placing of a cooling medium within the roller, a handle extending longitudinally from the closed end of the roller,

a stopper removably positioned in the open a cylindrical stopper for the open end of the roller having a diameter less than the inner diameter ofthe roller and provided at its outer side with an annular shoulder and at its inner side with lugs extending beyond the lateral side thereof, a washer positioned upon the stopper between the shoulder and thelugs and held in place thereby, the washer being of a thickness to removably secure the stopper within the open end of the roller, thehan-I dle being of circular formation in cross section and increasing in diameter from the inner to the outer end.

In testimony whereof I hereunto, atfix my signature.
