terial, (indicated by 16,) and a similar frame 17 will be secured to the netting around an opening therein opposite the mouth of the wearer, and this frame will be provided with a hinged door or flap, (indicated by 18,) which latter may be provided with a locking-catch 19, if preferred. By using the hinged door or flap the wearer will be able to insert anything into or remove it from his month.

In order to fit the structure in position, the fastening devices of the strips 5 will be disconnected and the protector sprung open on one side, after which the device can be easily fitted over the head and neck of the person by moving it sidewise, and the strips 5 can then be fastened together and the yokes will be in position over the shoulders, when by securing the straps at the lower ends of the yokes the device will be securely held in position on the wearer.

From the foregoing description it will be seen that I have produced an exceedingly simple, efficient, and durable device for the purpose of protecting the face and neck of the wearer from obnoxious insects and that the device can be easily fitted 011 or removed whenever desired.

Changes in the form, proportion, and the minor details of construction may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or sacrificin g any of the advantages of this invention.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim is 1. A face and neck protector, comprising a supporting-frame to fit over the head, neck and shoulders of the wearer and adapted to be sprung open on a vertical line at one side thereof said frame being formed in part of similarly-eonstructed strips pivoted at their upper ends to each other and to a fixed part of the frame and having their lower ends connected to movable parts of the frame, a covering of wire-netting secured to the frame, and means applied to the said strips to lock the frame in its closed position, substantially as described.

2. A face and neck protector, comprising a supporting-frame to fit over the head, neck and shoulders of the wearer, said frame being formed in part of two strips of metal arranged one above the other on one side of the frame and pivoted together at their upper ends and to a fixed part of the frame, and connected at their lower ends to movable parts thereof, one strip having a series of headed pins and the other a series of loopholes to fit over said pins, and a covering of wire-nettin g to fit over said frame, substantially as and for the purposes specified.

3. A face and neck protector, comprising a skeleton frame adapted to fit over the head and neck of the wearer and having shoulderyokes one of which is divided, said frame being formed of spring-wire and two superposed strips of spring sheet metal, connected at their lower ends to the respective sections of the divided shoulder-yoke, and pivotally connected together at their upper ends and to a fixed part of the frame, means to detachably lock the strips together, and a covering of wire-netting secured to the frame, said netting being divided on one side and secured to the respective metal strips, substantially as described.

4. A face and neck protector, comprising a skeleton frame adapted to fit over the head and neck of the wearer, and having a covering of wire-netting secured thereto,said frame and covering being adapted to open 011 a vertical line on one side thereof, and the frame having a shoulder-yoke at each side, one of the yokes being separable, and side strips connecting the parts of the separable yoke with the upper fixed part of the frame and straps at the lower ends of the yokes to fit under the armpits of the wearer, substantially as described.

5. In a protector for the head and neck, the combination of shoulder-yokes, one of which is separable at a medial point, side pieces conforming to the outline of the head, neck and shoulders and having their lower ends secured to the middle portion of the fixed shoulder-yoke and to the separable ends of the other shoulder-yoke, and having their upper ends meeting and pivotally connected, fastening means applied to the separable or complementary members of the side strips having connection with the separable shoulder-yoke, and wire-netting secured to the shoulder-yokes and side pieces, substantially as set forth.

(3. In a head and neck protector, the combination of a fixed and a separable shoulderyoke, and a side piece conforming approximately to the outline of the head, neck and shoulder secured at its lower end to the fixed shoulder-yoke, and corresponding side pieces composed of complementary members pivotally connected at their upper ends to each other and to the upper end of the first-mentioned side piece and having their lower ends secured to the upper terminals of the parts of the separable shoulder-yoke, fastening means applied to the complementary members of the separable side piece, front and rear bracebars connecting corresponding end portions of the shoulder-yokes, means for securing the lower terminals of the shoulder-yokes and the outer extremities of the front and rear bracebars, and a wire-netting secured to the shoulder-yokes, front and rear brace-bars and to the side pieces, substantially as set forth.

7. The herein-described head and neck protector, comprising a fixed and a separable shoulder-yoke, a side piece conforming approximately to the outline of the head, neck and shoulder secured at its lower end to the upper portion of the fixed shoulder-yoke, a corresponding side piece composed of complementary members pivotally connected at their upper ends and to the fixed side piece and having their lower ends connected with the extremities of the parts of the separable shoul- 603,306 v r t der-yoke,fastening means applied to the parts comprising the separable side piece, upper and lower horizontally-disposed curved rods connected midway of their ends to the fixed side piece and at their extremities to the complementary parts of the separable side piece,

, front and rear horizontal brace-bars connected with corresponding lower terminals of the shoulder-yokes, means for connecting the extremities of the shoulder-yokes, and front and rear brace-bars, and a meshed covering se- 1
