PATRICK POWER, l OF OHI'OAG'O, ILLINOIS.- Letters Patent Nb.l 69,698, dated October 8, 1867.



Be it known that I, PATRICK POWER, of Chicago, in the county of Cook, and State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Improvement in a CradleRocker; and I do hereby declare that the following is a. full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled in the art to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings forming part of this specification.

Figure 1 is a vertical-longitudinal section of a cradle to which my improved rocker` has been attached, taken Vthrough the line y y, tig. 2.

- Figure 2 is a. vertical cross-section of the same, taken through the line :v x, fig. 1.

Similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts.

My invention has for its Object to furnish an improved rocker by means of which the cradle or other article to which it is attached may be easily moved from place to place; and it consists in the combination of one or more rollers with the rocker, as hereinafter more: fully described. i

Arcprese'nts the body of the cradle, to the bottom of which the rockers B are attached in the ordinary manner. In the bottom or curved part of the rocker B is formed a recess, in which is pivoted the roller C in such a. way that it may revolve freely. The roller C is so formed that in Whatever position it may be its lower side may coincide with or be in continuation of the curve of the rocker, so as not to interfere with the rocking of the cradle.

l If desired the roller may be madein two or more parts, but I prefer to make it in the manner first described, as being simpler in construction.

This improvement enables the cradle to be easily and quietly moved from place to place'without scratching the {ioor or tearing the carpet. It also enables the cradle to be used as a Walking-stool by the child in learning',

to walk. Y.

I claim as new, and desire to secure hy Letters Patent- The combination of one or more rollers C with the rocker B, substantially as herein shown and described and for the purpose set forth.
