MITT.

SPECIPICATIONforming part of Letters Patent No 317,511, dated May 12, 1885.

Application filed October 14, 1884.

T all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ANNA B. CLARKE, a resident of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented an Improvement in Mitts, of which the following, is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being made to the accompanyingdrawings, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved mitt. Fig. 2 is a diagram, showing the principle on which the mitt is constructed.

This invention has for its object to so construct fingerless mitts that the same cannot slide backward on the hand.

.15 The invention consists in providingsuch a mitt with one or more cross-bands, which are adapted to enter between the fingers, as hereinafter more fully described.

In the drawings, the letter A represents a mitt having no fingers. Mitts of this kind are liable to slip back on the hand, and to expose the knuckles and form wrinkles, all of which is objectionable. To prevent this I place across (No model.)

the open lower end of the mitt one or more bands or cords, a a, which, when the mitt is on the hand, enter between the fingers and prevent the mitt from slipping back or up. In order to hide these bands or cords and modify the abrupt termination of the mitt, it may frequently be desirable to apply alace border, b, to the mitt, as shown. This lace border by itself is not a novel ty, but, as combined with the bands or cords a, it renders their use more practical, because hiding them.

The bands or cords a should be of elastic 5 substance, such as ilnlia-rubber.

. I claim A mitt having one or more'transvcrse elastie bands or cords, (1 across its lower end, and a border, b, for concealing the same, substan- 4o tially as and for the purpose specified.

ANNA B. CLARKE.
