AUTOMATIC CRYING DOLL.

Application filed December 8, 1891- Serinl lie. 413,887. (No model.)
' will cause sounds to be given forth.
I will describe my invention as applied to a doll, as I consider the same one of the mostdesin-able forms in which the invention can be used.
Figure 1 is a section of my apparatus detached from the doll; Fig. 2 is a section of one of the pipes showing the reed in position; Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing the reed; Fig. 4 is a front view, showing my apparatus in position in the doll.
B B are two flexible pouches or bags preferably formed of rubber, and A A are nonflexible cases surrounding said pouches.
C is a hollow stand having perforations and to this stand is connected the fl exiblepouch B and easing A, the lower portion of the easing -A is removed and the ends connected to the connecting joint of neck D. This neck or joint D isalso connected to the flexible pouch or bag B. The casing A and pouch B being connected together at the neck D.
c is a hollow tube or pipe which opens at one end into the casing A at c bis another pipe or tube which opens into casing Af at b Each of these pipes contain a reed b c at or near the free end, I) c, said reeds being adapted to be acted upon by air when the air is moving in the direction respectively denoted by the arrows. A pipe (it, provided with a reed -a adapted to act in either direction passes into the hollow stand 0. The opening into said stand being only sufficiently large to admi t said pipe.
The operation is as follows: Supposing the apparatus to be in the position shown in Fig. 1 and itbe turned end for end or ina horizontal position, the water which is contained in the pouch B passes through the flexible neck into the case A compressing the flexible bag B, driving out the water through the pipe a and sounding the reed a. At the same time the water pressure on the flexible bag B closes the pipe b at the point I) and opens the pipe 0 at the point e, and the air passesin through the pipe 0, and in its entrance passing through reed a, into the casingA, also causing a noise. When the apparatus is again reversed the water passes back into the pouch B allowing pouch B to expand and the air passes into said pouch through the pipe a through reed a while thepressure of the water in the pouch B closes the openings 0 of the pipesc, and the pressure is removed ontheend of the pipe b so that the air in the case A is forced out through said pipe B and through the reed.
I have described in this apparatus, (in the with a fixed air casing surrounding it. It is evident that the upper section might be used with a lower section adapted to contain water and without the other parts of the lower section, and in the same way the lower section mightbe used with an uppersection adapted to hold water only, and without the other portions of said upper part of said drawings, Fi l.
-Fifhen this apparatus is used with a doll the reeds may be so constructed as to give the imitation of a cry and the reeds may be fixed at diiferent tones so as to create discord.
Having now fully described my invention,
.what I claim and desire to protect by Letters Patent is:-
'1. In combination, a flexible pouch or bag adapted to hold air, a non-flexible case surrounding said pouch or bag, an outlet from said pouch to the air, a reed in said outlet, a water receptacle and connection between said water receptacle and case. A
2. In combination, afiexible bag or pouch adapted to hold water, anon-flexible case surrounding said pouch or bag, an outlet to the air in the upper portion of said case and an outlet to the air in the lower portion of said case, a reed in each'of said-outlets, a water receptacle and connection between said water receptacle and said flexible bag or pouch.
3. In combination, a flexible bag or pouch adapted to hold water, anon-flexible case surtween said water receptacle and flexible bag.
4. In combination, a flexible bag or pouch adapted to hold water, a non-flexible case surrounding said pouch or bag, an outlet from said case to the air,'a reed in said outlet, a water receptacle, and connection between said fiwvater receptacle and said flexible bag.
5. In combination, a flexible pouch or bag adapted to hold air, a non-flexible case surrounding said pouch or bag, an outlet from 15 said pouch to the air, a reed in said outlet, a flexible bag or pouch adapted to hold water, connection between said water pouch and said case, a non-flexible case surroundingsaid water pouch, outlets from said case to the air, and a reed in each of said outlets.
In testimony whereof I atfix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
