' SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 300,246, dated June Applicalion filed October 4, 1583.

$0 a]! whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, MAX GOLDBERG, of Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee, and in the State of \Visconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Apparatus for Administering Medicated Baths; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof.

Myinvcntion relates to improvements in apparatus for administering Turkish or inedicated vaporbaths, and will be fully described hereinafter.

In the drawings, Figure 1 shows the interior of a bath-room in which my improved device is used. Fig. Eisafront view of shield. 3 is a vertical section through center of said shield, and Fig. 4 is a side elevation of said shield with its attachment.

A is the bath-room, of any form or sizegvhich is connected by means of suitable piping with the boiler or apparatus described in the specification forming part of Letters Patent Nos. 261,598 and 279,091, granted to me July 25, 1882, and June 5, 1&3, respectively. B B B indicate the maskshield which embodies my invention. This consists of aplate of any suitable material, shaped so as to conform to the salient features of the face, the cavities G 0 formed in it for the mouth and nose being extended outward far enough to form couplings c c for the tubes D and D. a a are provided in the curved edge of said mask-shield for the attachment of bands of soft or flexible material, by means of which the niaslrshicld is adapted. to tightly fit over the face. A spring, I), bent to conform to the curvature of the head, is fastened to the upper Perforations a a (No model.)

part of said shield, and has in its free end a loop, b, in which an endless elastic band, (I, inserted in the notch d, formed between the tube-couplings c c, is slipped to hold said shield in place. The pipes D and D are connected by flexible tubes E E E with rigid pipes e 6, passed through the walls of the room or in the ceiling of same, and open in the outside air.

The application of the shield to the face of a person taking a vapor-bath will enable such person to inhale and exhale from and to the open air, while the body is exposed to vapor at a high pressure and temperature, and while the bodyis subjected to a vapor of poisonous nature the air breathed by the patient will be pure, as he will be effectually prevented from inhaling such vapor; and this is especially of service in Russian and Turkish baths, wherein several persons may be subjected to baths in the same room without any of them inhaling the exhalations of the others.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

In a maslrshield for vapor or medicated baths, the combination of spring I), having a loop, I), with the endless elastic band d and notch d on said shield, substantially as shown and described, and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand, at Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukee and State of Wiscousin, in the presence of two witnesses.
