SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 389,652, dated Septeinbel 18, 1888.

y Application filed September 27, 18S6. Serial No. 214.695. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, J ULIUs HELTZLE, a citi'- zen of the United States, residing at St. Louis, in the State of Missouri, have invented a new and useful Improved Stop and Taste (lock, of

which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to improvements in stop and waste cocks, which are placed in cellars of buildings, having the inlet-water pipe 1o connected at one end and water-supply for upper stories connected at the other end, and the object of my improvements is, first, to provide means for controlling the water-supply by automatic arrangement between my stop and waste cock and draw-cock of sink in upper stories; also, to disconnect the same, as will be explained hereinafter; second, to drain said supply-pipe of wat er to prevent freezingin cold weather,and,third,toprovide ready means 2'@ in upper stories, by means of which said supply-pipe can -be' drained of water, obviating the necessity of going to basement or cellar of a building, as usual in the old way. I attain these objects by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanyingdrawings, in which- Figure l is a front view of my improved stop and waste cock. Fig. 2 is a sectional view showing valve with valve stem as seated upon springfor stoppage of inflow of water and the 3o drainage of supply-pipe. Figisasimilarseetional View showing valve with valve-stem as depressed in its seat upon spring, bringing ori iice of valve on line of orifice of supply for iniiow of water through supply-pipe. Fig.A 4 is a front view as applied in building, showing my automatic arrangement ot rod and lever connected with stem of valve; also showing rod extended to upper story and placed beside draw-cock of sink, said rod having crook at 4o its end, by means ofwhich it is raised by turning the handle of said draw-cock. Fig. 5 is a similar view showing handle of draw-cock turned'and engaged with crook of rod at its end, having raised the same, and by means of my automatic arrangement oi' rod and lever connected with stem of valve depressed the valve in its seat upon spring. Fig. 6 is a front view of valve with stem broken off at end.

Fig. 7 is a plan view.

Similarletters refer to similar parts throughout the several views.

A is the box or housing.

B represents val ve-body, cored out, as shown, having screw ends B2 B, the screwcap C, coupling D,valve E,and stem F,iitted to operate through the cap and its packing,as shown. To said stem F, I connect rod G, having crook i at its end, through lever h, turning on fulcrum h,and extend same to upperstory,1 laced beside draw-cock of sink j. rlhe valve-stem F carries the valve E, seated upon spring g,ha'ving circular orifice e and ehanneljl (shown in dotted lines,Figs. 2 and 3.) arranged over each other, so that as valve E, through its stem F, is depressed upon spring g by the action of draw-cock of sink j, raising rodG and operating upon lever h through fulcrum h', as seen in Figs. 3and 5. Oriiice c of said valve will range in line with orifice of supply-pipe, thereby allowing the iniow of water. Again, when, by the action of spring g and the release ofdrawcock f rom crook fr' of rod G,operating upon lever h through fulcrum h and stem F of valve E, said valve E is raised to its normal position, channel f presents its opening toward supply-pipe to be drained of'its water, and valve at the same time shuts off water from inlet-pipe, as seen in Figs. 2 and 4. The water drained passes out atvchannel f of valve E through opening cored out of valve-body B for seat of springg and small hole d, and may from thence be drained oli' by pipe connected with sewer, as shown in Figs. 4 and 5.

Screw ends B3 are for connection of watersupply pipes. Their threaded ends receive lscrew-caps O and its packing and sleeves b,

said sleeves b having tapered ends and flange or shoulder b. To said sleeves b, I soldersupply-pipes at both ends.

To disconnect my automatic arrangement between stop and waste cock and draw-cock of sink, I depress the valve E through stem IOO causing damage by lhe bursting ol' the pipes. It is therefore cspeciallj,Y desirable, in extreme cold weather, beth day and night, that said pipes should be drained at all times and wa- 5 ter-supply thereto controlled. This I have achieved in times of fall and winter season by my automat-ie arrangement between stop and waste cock and draw-cock ofsiuk, having, by means thereof, full control over wat er iu suple plypipcs, and also drainage of same; also that at other times in spring and summer of' the year, when the control ol'water and drainage of supply-pipes becomes unnecessary, I can disconnect the same und render the sume 15 inoperative.

\Vhat I claim is- 1. 'lhe eombiualion ol` the valvel, Iheslcm F, spring y, with draw-cock of' sink j, operating upon the stem F and the valve E by rod (l, with crook i at its end through lever /1y and 2o fuicrum h', as and for the purpose set forth.

2. The combination, with the Valve-stem of a stop and drain cock of the class described, and the val Ve of a suppljyf-pipe connected therewitl'nol' alcvereonnected tothe va1ve-stem,aud 25 a rod connected to theleverand havinga crook, i, arranged in the path oi' the operating-lever of Said valve, substantially as specified.

In testimony of said invention I have here unto set my hand.
