SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 327,401, dated September 29, 1885.

7 Application filed July 31, 1885. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, JosHUA Low, a citizen of the United States, residing at Steubenville, in the county of Jefferson and State of Ohio,

have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Siphon-Corks; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains {O to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

My invention has relation to siphons for [5 drawing liquids from tanks and barrels, and the object is to provide a device of this kind that will meet the general demands of the trade; and to this end the novelty consists in a hollow rubber bung provided with aiiexible integral 2o perforated diaphragm, through which the siphon may be inserted, in combination with the siphon-tubes, as will be hereinafter more fully described.

In the accompanying drawings similar letters of reference indicate like parts of the invention.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a barrel with my improved siphon in position. Fig. 2 is a section of the taper hung with a small 0 siphon-tube adjusted thereto, and Fig. 3 is a similar View with alarge siphon-tube in position.

A is the hollow taper bung, of such dimensions as will fit the bung-holes of the ordinary barrels.

B is the air-tube, and is provided with a mouth-piece, I), through which air may be blown into the barrel through the interior a of the bung A.

G is the siphon-tube, and may be of any appropriate size or diameter and of any suitable length. This tube 0 passes through the diaphragm D and into the interior of the barrel.

The diaphragm D is made integral with the bung A, and its hole at is of such a size as to admit a small-size tube, while, being flexible, it will readily receive varioussized tubes up to its maximum capacity, according to the rapidity with which it may be necessary to draw off the contents of the barrel.

What I claim is- The bung A, having integral flexible diaphragm D, provided with hole (I, in combination with the air-tube B and siphon-tube O, as set forth. 7

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