HARNESS-GIRTH.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 299,995, dated June 10,,1884.

Application filed October 20, 1883.

To wZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, J AMES McGUIRE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Benson, in the county of Rutland and State of Vermont, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Harness-Girths, of which the following is a specification, reference ,being had therein to the accompanying drawing.

This invention has relation to improvements in harness-girths; and it consists in the construction and novel arrangement of the same, whereby one girth may be used on the harness for securing the harness-saddle and thills of a vehicle, thus dispensing with a second girth for securing the thills, all as will be hereinafter more fully explained.

The annexed drawing, to which reference is made, fully illustrates myi-nvention, in which the figure represents a plan view of my device.

Referring by letter to the accompanying drawing, A designates a harness-girth,which is provided at each end with abuckle, at, having a cross-bar, b, on which the tongue rests, and at the extreme end of said buckle is a cross-bar, c, to which is secured one end of astrap, d, the outer or free end of which is looped around the thills, and the end thereof is secured to a (No model.)

buckle, e, 011 said strap. The saddle-straps of the harness are secured to the girth A by 30 the buckles a, secured to said girth, and both the saddle and thill or end straps, I, pass through loops 9 g.

Itwill be observed from the above description that by my construction I am enabled to 3 5 dispense with the second girth commonly used on harness. At the same time it is durable and cheap to manufacture.

Having described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s

As an improvement in harness-girths, the combination, with the buckle a, secured to the ends of the girth A and provided with the cross-bar c, of the thill-strapsd, one end se- 5 cured to said cross-bare, and the buckle e, the free end of the straps d adapted to pass around the thills, the whole constructed and arranged as shown, described, and for the purposes specified. I

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
