JOHN P. SCI-IAN, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO PARKER, STEARNS t SUTTON, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., A CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.
COMBINED CUSHION, WATER-BAG, AND FOUNTAIN-SYRINGE.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 698,861, dated April 29, 1902. Application tiled March 26, 1901. Serial No. 52,888. (No model.)
To LZZ whom t may concern:
Be it known that I, JOHN P. SCHAN ,a citizen of the United States, residing in Brooklyn, Kings county, New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in a Combined Cushion, Water-Bag, and Fountain- Syringe, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to a combined aircushion, Water-bag, and fountain-syringe.
In the accompanying drawings I have shown a structure in which my invention is embodied.
In the drawings, Figure lis a front view of the structure, showing the same suspended from a nail and in use as a fountain-syringe. Fig. 2 shows the structure doubled over and in position for use as a hot-water face-bag. Fig. 3 is an enlarged sectional detail view of the combined stopper and valve. Fig. 4L is a section thereof; and Fig. 5 is an underneath View of the stopper, showing also the line 4 4 upon which the section is taken.
In the drawings, @indicates the body of the bag. b indicates asuspension-loop; c,the funnelmouth of the bag,- and c Z a handle for the bag. The mouth f of the bag is provided with a screw-threaded sleeve g, into which the stopper ts. This stopper,which is shown best in Fig. 4, consists of abody-lange h, from which projects a screw-threaded flange or collar 12. The bodyflange Zt is also provided with an interiorly-screw-threaded hollow stem j, which is provided with a pair of arms or handles 7c for a purpose presently to be described. Fitting in the hollow stem j is a tubular stem Z, screw-threaded on the outside and provided with a valve m, which is adapted to be rmly seated against the inner face of the body-flange 7L. The stemZ is provided with a milled collar or iange o at thevouter end for the reception of a flexible pipe p, to which the nozzle of the fountain-syrin ge may be screwed. VThis pipe when applied embraces the flange o and the outer partof the tubular stem j adjoining iiange o, thereby preventing leakage. The stopper is provided with a'packing-ring q, of soft rubber or other elastic material. The stem Z is likewise apertured at r for the passage of water. It will be understood that the bag will be most conn veniently filled by nnscrewing the stopper, thearms or handles 7@ serving the purpose of a handle for unscrewing the stopper. Nor; mally the valve m is held rmly against its seat by rotating the stem Z until it is screwed up iirmly, so that the stopper structure will act as an ordinary stopper for a hot-water bag. However, when it is desired to draw water from thefbag the collar o may be rotated to unseat the valve m, the stem Z being rotatable independently of the stopper, so that water may be drawn from the bag without removing the stopper. In Fig. 1 I have shown a pipe p connected to the stem Z and the bag hung up. YIn Fig. 2 I have shown the suspension-loop engaging over the arms of the stopper, so as to maintain the bag in a folded condition for'use as a face-bag.
It will be obvious that the bag structure is of such shape'as to readily serve as an air-V cushion or seat.
Having described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, 1s
l. A valved stopper for the purpose described, comprising a tubular plug, a hollow valve-carrying stem arranged to move in the plug andi to control the passage of liquid therethrough, the outer end or nozzle of said stem being immediately adjacent to the outer end of the plug and substantially flush-therewith so that; a, ilexible pipe may be slipped over the adjacent outer ends of the plug and the stem, soas to cover the joint between said ends and prevent leakage.
- 2. -The combination with a bag or receptacle having an outlet,a tubular stopper-plug in'said outlet,a hollow valve-carrying stem arranged to move in the plug and to control the passage of liquid therethrough, the outer end or nozzle of said stem being immediately adjacent to the outer end of the plug and substantially iiush therewith, and a exible pipe extending over the adjacent outer ends of the plug and of the stem, and covering the joint between said'e'nds to prevent leakage.
