The-side walls-ofzdome 1' l8 merge into the closed top portion 20 thereof and centrally of said top portion 20 is located a nipple 2| extending through top portion 20 and Referring mow in v detail to ,the drawings the proved-bag-J 0 comprise the. substantially rigid attached firmly thereto so as to extend substantially axially and interiorly ofdome l8 for the entire height thereof. Nipple 2| has a collar 22 which engages the underside of top portion 20 and as illustrated, a soft rubber washer 23 or the equivalent is disposed around nipple 2| above topv portion 20 and held in place by a metal member 24 which may be a nut threadedly engaging nipple 2| or may be firmly fixed to nipple 2| by any other preferred fastening technique. Nipple 2| is formed with an axial passage 25, the upper portion of which is threaded, and a screw 26 provided with a washer 2'! threadedly engages passage 25 to close the upper end thereof in watertight manner.

It will be noted by reference to Figure'2 that the bag It] may rest on a flat surface and is to all outward appearance a conventional icebag, the distinguishing feature of bag I0, namely, nipple 2| mounted as described in dome l8, extending upwardly within the neck portion I so as not to take up any extra room,

Still referring to Figure 2 it is evident that by removing cap I! and screw 26 and washer 21 therewith, the upper end of passage 25 is opened, and bag It] is also in convenient position for depressing dome |8 so that it will assume the'deformed shape of Figure 1. Referring now to Figure 1 nipple 2|-extends downwardly through bottom wall |3 of bag l and a rubber tube 28 may be conveniently attached thereto when bag I0 is to be used as a fountain syringe. In such manner of use the bag ID will be suspended by means of eyelet I6 in flap l from any convenient wall fixture, such as a hook, and bag I0 will 'assume the approximately cylindrical shape illustrated in Figure 1. In such shape of bag I0, water or other liquid 29 contained in bag In may pass freely through passage 25 of nipple 2| and be used in manner customary with fountain syringes. Dome ill in Figure 1 as shown is extremely deformed, the walls thereof extending above and back inwardly over top portion 20. 'Such deformed shape of dome l8 may be maintained indefinitely, since the side walls in such condition and position exert a downward force on nipple 2|. In such position of dome l8 nipple 2|' is adapted to discharge substantially all of the water or other liquid in bag l0.

It will thus be seen, that there is provided a device in which the several objects of this invention are achieved, and which is well adapted to meet the conditions of practical use;

As various possible embodiments might be made of the above invention, and as various changes might be made in the embodiments above set forth, it is to be understood that all matter herein set forth or shown in the accompanying drawing is to be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

What is claimed is:

1. A combined ice bag and fountain syringe comprising the combination with ice bag means comprising a, rigid neck portion and thin, flexible, waterproof sheet material fastened thereto to constitute a bag body, of nipple means fastened interiorly to said body and normally located inside said neck portion and movable to a position of extending through the bottom of said bag body for the attachment of a rubber hose or the like.

2. A combined ice bag and fountain syringe comprising the combination with ice bag means 4 comprising a rigid neck portion and thin, flexible waterproof sheet material fastened thereto to constitute a bag body, of a comparatively heavy, flexible, substantially cylindrical dome attached to the interior surface of the bottom wall of said ice bag, said dome being downwardly open and said bottom having a passage formed therethrough peripherally inwardly of said dome, and nipple means located inside said dome, said dome being deformable so as to cause said nipple means to extend through said passage and below said bottom wall.

3. A combined ice bag and fountain syringe comprising the combination with ice bag means comprising a rigid neck portion and thin, flexible waterproof sheet material fastened thereto to constitute a bag body, of nipple means fastened interiorly to said body and normally located inside said neck portion and movable to a position of extending through the bottom of said bag body for the attachment of a rubber hose or the like, said nipple means further having a passageway formed therethrough for the passage of liquid, said nipple means further comprising screw and washer means engaging the upper end portion thereof for substantially watertight closure thereof.

4. A combined ice bag and fountain syringe comprising the combination with ice bag means comprising a rigid neck portion and thin, flexible waterproof sheet material fastened thereto to constitute a bag body, of a comparatively heavy, flexible, substantially cylindrical dome attached to the interior surface of the bottom wall of said ice bag, said dome being downwardly open and said bottom wall having a passage formed therethrough peripherally inwardly of said dome. and

nipple means located inside said dome, said dome being deformable so as to cause said nipple means .to extend through said passage and below said bottom wall, said nipple means further having a passageway formed therethrough for the passage of liquid, said nipple means further comprising screw and washer means engaging the up- 2 per end portion thereof for substantially watertight closure thereof.

5. A combined ice bag and fountain syringe comprising the combination with ice bag means comprising a, rigid neck portion and thin, flexible waterproof sheet material fastened thereto to constitute a bag body, of a comparatively heavy, flexible, substantially cylindrical dome attached to the interior surface of the bottom wall of said ice bag, said dome being downwardly open and said bottom wall having a passage formed therethrough peripherally inwardly of said dome, and nipple means located inside said dome, said dome comprising a top portion and side wall portions and being deformable so as to cause said nipple means to extend through said passage and below said bottom wall, said side wall portions when said dome is so deformed extending above and back inwardly of said top portion.
