SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 649,062, dated May 8, 1900.

Application tiled May 11,1399. Serial No. 716,366. (No 'modelfl lle it known that we, Lotus LHVETT and Mounts II. TiEvErr, citizens of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of New York and Stale of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Disiufecting Devices, of which thi following is a full and complete specification, such as will enable those skilled in the art to which itappcrtains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to devices for disinfecting or deodorizing closets and compartments in dwellings, hotels, restaurants, and other places; and the object thereof is to provide au improved deviell of thisl class which is simple in construction and operation and comparatively inexpensive and may be employed wherever sneh devices are required.

rlhe invention is fully disclosed in the following specification, of which 1 he accompanying drawings form a part, in which the separate parts of our improvement are designated by numeralsl of reference and in which we have shown our improvement as adapted for use in a water-closet.

ln the drawings forminga part of this speciiication, Figure l is a view in elevation of our improved device; Fig. 2, a section on the line 2 2 of Fig. l, and Fig. Ii an end view.

In the practice of ourinvention we provide a suitable support which, as shown in the drawings, consists ofabase-plate 5, provided with side projections ti, by which it may be secured to a, wall or other support, and the base-plate 5 is provided with end portions 7, which project at right angles thereto, and these end portions 7 are preferably longitudinally adjustable on the base-plate 5, and for this purpose said base-plate is provided with guides or ways S and the end portion 7 with angular members Si, which are adapted to slide in said guides or ways. Mounted in the ends or end portions 7 is a detachable shaft l0, on which is placed a hollow cylindrical receiver 11., which is preferably provided at each end with enlarged circular heads l', and the body or central portion of the receiver and the heads l2 thereof are preferably finely perforated, as shown in Figs. l and 2; but any suitable openings may be substituted fortheseperforations, Thebody or central portion of the receiver is also coniposed of two parts, one of which is connected with each of the heads 12, and one ot said parts is adapted to be inserted into the other, as shown at lil in Fig. 2, and in the practice of our invention we place within the receiver any suitable disinfecting or deodyriz ingniaterial. As shown in the drawings, this` materialconsists ofa sponge il ,satu rated with disinfecting or deodorizing chemicals or substances suitable for the purpose described; but said disinfeeting or deodorizing material may be of any desired form or be in any preferred condition and may lic placed in the reeeiver so as to lill the same. \\"c have also shown a roll ol toiletpaper if mounted on the central cylindrical portion of thc receiver, and our improvement may thus be made to serve a double pnrpose-namely, that of deodorixing or disinfccting and also as a support for a roll of toilet-papcrA-:ind the opera tion of pulling oIT ille toilet-paper in the usual manner will turn or rapidly revolve the receiver and canse the disinfecting or deodorizing fumes to be thrown off through the perforated receiver. The base-plate 5 of the support is also provided with a springarm iii, which bears on the paper-roll l5 and serves to prevent the too-free revolution of said roll or ol the reeeiveron which it ismounted in the operation of pulling oT the paper.

Any suitable frame or support may be provided, and in the dra-wings forming part of this specification we have shown the rcceiver as provided with two short stub axles or shafts, and the said receiverconstitutes, when made as shown and described, a rcel on which the paper is mounted.

It will be apparent that changes in and modifications of the construction herein de scribed may be made without departing from the spirit of our invention or sacrificing its advantages.

Having fully described our invention, we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- 1. A disinfecting device which is spool or reel shaped in form and rcvolubly mounted, said device being provided with enlarged hollow perforated ends, which are adapted to receive a disinfectant, and the portion oi' said IOO device between said ends consisting of two telescoping parts, substantially as shown and described.

2. A disinfecting apparatus which is levolnbly mounted and which comprises a hollow perforated central portion and enlarged hollow perforated end portions in communication with the central portion, said central portion being composed of separate detachable telescopic parts,` substantially as shown and described.

3. A disinfeetingdevice,oon1prising a yokeshaped frame, and a spool-shaped device revolnbly mounted therein, said spool-shaped device being hollow and perforated, and the 15 central portion thereof being composed of separate telescopic detachable parts, substantially as shown and described.

In testimony that we claim the foregoing as our invention We have signed our naines, in presence of the subscribing witnesses, this 10th day of May, 1899.
