TO WHOM IT MAY OONCEBN:
Beit known that I SIMON M. LANDIS, of the city and county of Philadelphia, and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and improved Female Syringcg and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description thereof, referencel being had to the accompanying drawings and letters of reference marked thereon.
Figure I represents the syringe bulb tube, made oi' metal, rubber, or any other suitable material. a a
constitute Vthe increased size oi' bulb, which is longer and more extensive than other syringe tube-s. b o I) constitute the new funnel-shaped cavities, without or with communicative giooves, as shown in drawing/marked which are entirely new, and are very much superior to the old-fashion parallel, small openings orvholes. In the centre of the funnel cavitiesjvery small holes are made to connect'with the main'lhole, A. 'llie benefits of. these funnel-shaped cavities and grooves are, first, should the tube rest against the esh yor membranes of the vagina, the ow of water is stopped in the use of the old'syringe tubes; but in my new one such cannot be the-case; but wherever the tube may rest, the current of fluid thrown will iiow in all :direction-s, Moreover,
this improved syringe tube may contain fromtwenty to iii-'ty funnel cavities and holes, (or more or less,) whilst ,other tubes have seldom more than from four to eight holes, and no funnel-shaped cavities nor grooves. C
represents theend to which the hose or gum pipe is attached, when used as a female hose syringe. But the inventor claims the right to attach this end of the improved 'female syringe, by screw or otherwise, to other syringes, in any manner.
Figure II represents a new, novel, and convenient apparatus `for securely attaching the hose syringe to Spigots of any and every size and shape. R Rl constitute a metallic or gutta-percha box. vTo the inferior end, at o, the leather or gatta-perche. pipe or hose is attached, and t t tt constitute the walls; jy', the rim, to which is itted a. corresponding ring, z' i, which is more fully represented in Fig. III, z' z', which'is attached to the rim j j in Fig. II; and s s 'constitute' the screws which hold the ring and rim together. Between the ring, z'z', and rim jj, is placerha ,gatta-perche washer, (see Figure IV, letter K,) through the centre of which a round hole (of various sizes to suit the spigots) is made at 1'. The four small holes, o v c 21, are -made for four screws, which attach rimjj to ring z' i.
Figure III represents the superior view of. ring z' 2', in which are seen the fourascrews, e s .s s, and` also two eyes or ears, e e, for a handle, like that of a common bucket, t-L, to which a common cord, C, is attached; and to the end of said cordaA lightweight, p, is attached. This cord is used by winding it around the spigot several times,|when the weight p will prevent the cord from uuravelling or slipping, and thusthc box cannot' 'slide or corne off of the spigot by the force of water, which is nearly always the casein attachments without screws. Y i
Any skilled mechanic can easily ascertain from the foregoing description how every partA of this improved female syringe and spigot-box are constructed; therefore further instruction would be useless, only to express that I Figure V represents the hose or pipe. v
Figure VI represents the complete combination of syringe bulb tube, with funnel-shaped cavities, (and a vfew grooves,) hose or spigot-box, washer handle, and cord and weight, ready for use.
' The advantages of this syringe over all others in use are numerous: first, in female complaints, like thc whites, ulceration, die., it is neccssary'that a copious current of water be thrown directly all over the walls-oi` the vagina at once. This instrument will doit eiectually, on account of its increased dimensions and novel construction. In flooding or uterine hemorrhages it is far superior to all others. In preventing conception it stands unrivalled. It need not only be applied to bath or hydrant spigots, but can be applied to all syringes or force-pumps of suiiicicnt magnitude to give lar`ge enough current of iluid (whether pure water or medicinal preparation) to supply the improved tube. .All other syringes are baby inventions, being ineiiicient to supply the vaginal tubo with an ample quantity oi" i'luid. l
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
The funnel-shaped cavities, with or without gropves of the syringe bulb tube. Also the box, applicable to spigots of any size, in combination with syringe bulbtube, asherein described.
