UNITED STATES Patented. February 23, 1904.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 752,769, dated February 23, 1904.

Application filed 00am 29,1903.

To all whom it .may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM C. GRAIGHEN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Winchester, in the county of Frederick and State of Virginia, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Gauntlets; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

My invention is an improved gauntlet; and it consists in the construction and arrangement of devices hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a gauntlet embodying my improvements, showing the cuff extended to its maximum degree. Fig. 2 is a detail elevation showing the cuff contracted to a maximum extent and in dotted lines showing other adjustments of the cuff.

In the embodiment of my invention I provide the cuff 1 of the gauntlet with a gore 2, one edge of which is secured to one end of the cuff, as at 3, and the opposite edge of which is secured near the opposite end of the cuff, as at 4, the last-mentioned end of the cliff extending beyond the point where the gore is united thereto to form a flap 5. The outer edge 6 of the gore is curved to correspond with the outer edge of the cuff, so that when the cuff is extended to the maximum degree, as shown in Fig. 1, the gore presents a sightly appearance.

The flap is provided with the snap member 7 of the fastening of the form now in common use. The opposite portion of the cuff is provided with a plurality of stud members 8,

9, and 10, appropriately spaced apart and arranged in a line which is oblique to the outer edge of the cufl, The cuff may be fastened by engaging the fastening member 7 with either of the stud members 8, 9, and 10 to enlarge the cuff or contract the same, as may be required. When the cuff is contracted on the sleeve of the coat of the wearer, it serves effectually to prevent the entrance of cinders,

snow, hail, or rain, and my improved gauntlet Serial No- 179,091. (No model.)

thus constructed is especially adapted for use by railroad men and by riders and drivers. It is also adapted for use for all purposes for which gauntlets' are ordinarily employed.

The gore is preferably made of the same material and color as the cuff to render the same inconspicuous, but it may be made of any suitable material, as will be understood. lldo not desire to limit myself in this particu ar.

It will be understood by reference to Fig. 2 of the drawings that the disposition of the stud members 8, 9, and 10 of the line which is transverse on the cuff and oblique to the outer edge of the cuff is eflicient in keeping the two ends of the cufl in line with each other at their outer edges at all adjustments of the cuff, whether the same be extended or contracted. The flap is here shown as formed integrally with the cuff. In practice it may be formed separately therefrom and secured thereto. I do not desire to limit myself in this particular.

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

A gauntlet having a cuff provided with a gore and a flap at one end of the cuff which overlaps'one side of the gore, a fastening member on the flap and a plurality of fastening members on the cuff at the other side of the gore, said plurality of fastening members being disposed in a line which extends transversely on the cuff and obliquely with the outer edge thereof, whereby the cuff may be contracted at will and its ends kept in line with each other at their outer edges by the fasening members at all adjustments of the on In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
