SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 257,785, dated May 9, 1882.
I Application filedMa-rch 20, 1882. (No model.) I
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, WILLIAM L.TETER, of
the city and county of Philadelphia, and State of Pennsylvania, have invented an Improvement in Toy Hoop-Sticks, of which the following is a specification.
Myinvention has reference to hoop-sticks; and it consists in providing the stick on the end with a bell, so that when the hoop is struck the bell will ring; further, in minor details of 7 construction, all of which are fully set out in the following specification and shown in the accompanying drawings, which form part thereof.
Theobject of thisinvention is to makeahoopstick as an article of manufacture which shall ring upon handling the same, and thereby please the child who is usingit.
In the drawings, Figure l is a sectional elevation of my improved hoop-stick, and Fig. 2 is a section view of the bell end of such a stick with a modified form of construction.
0 is shown cast solid with the bell B; but in Fig. 2 it is shown as an ordinary screw with a small head, F, and the bell is provided with a hole, G, in its bottom for the shank of the screw 0, and at the top with a hole,- E, large enough for the screw-head F to pass through, and throu gh which the screw-driver isinserted.
In thisapplication 1 do not claim broadly the construction of the bells, as that will form subject-matter of a future application.
Having now described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. As a new. article of manufacture, a toy hoop-stick consisting of the body of wood surrounded on its end with a metallic ferrule, and provided with a globe-bell 011 said end, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
2. A globe-bell provided on the top with a hole large enough to admit a screw-head and on the bottom with a hole large enough to admit the shank of a screw, in combination with the screw and hoop stick, substantially as shown. 7
In testimony of which invention I hereunto set my hand.
WILLIAM L. TETER.
