SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N o. 674,913, dated May 28, 1901.

Application led February 9, 1901. Serial No. 46,628. (No model.)

To a/ZZ whom t may concern:

Be it known that LWILLIAM H. FIKE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Iberia, in the county of Miller and State of Missouri, have invented certain newand useful Improvements in Bath or Rubbing Gloves; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawings, making a part of this specication, and to the letters of reference marked thereon.

The present invention has for its object to provide a bath or rubbing glove having a pocket Yin the palm thereof for containing suitable medicated material or rubbing compound; and it consists ofa glove constructed substantially as shown in the drawings and hereinafter described and claimed.

Figure 1 of the drawings is a plan view of the glove; Fig. 2, a similar view with the protecting-covering removed to show the position of the pocket with relation to the palm of the glove; Fig. 3, a longitudinal section of Fig. l.

In the accompanying drawings, A represents the glove, of yarn or any other suitable material found most desirable and of any preferred size and shape, said glove having a pocket B in the palm thereof, which may be formed thereon or made separate and afterward secured by stitching or otherwise, as preferred, in manufacturing the same. This pocket, as will be noticed, is of a width substantially equal to the width of the glove, so that it will nearly cover the entire palm to contain the medicated material or any substance that may be found desirable to use in washing, rubbing, or otherwise treating the person on whom the glove is used.

A protecting-covering C is temporarily se- 4o cured to the palm of the glove over the pocket to retain the medicated or other compound therein, said covering being of` any preferred material and stitched or otherwise secured to the glove.

A glove constructed as herein described may be used for general bathing purposes by placing in the pocket a soap compound and the glove placed upon the hand, dipped in water, and then applied to the body or other 5o parts in the manner of a wash-rag or fleshbrush,or any suitable medicated material having detersive and hygienic properties may be placed in the pocket and the glove used in any manner found most preferable.

Having now fully described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

A bath or rubbing glove having a pocket extending lengthwise thereof and connected 6o to the palm, and a protecting-covering secured to the glove over said pocket to retain the material therein, substantially as and for the purpose specified.

In testimony that I claim the above I have 65 hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.
