PATENTED FEB. 7, 1905.




Wl TNESSES UNITED STATES Patented February '7, 1905.



SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 781,814, dated February '7, 1905.

Application filed June 15, 1904. Serial No. 212.639.

[o /r//Z whom, it muy concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLES V. DOssoNE, a citizen of the United States, residing in the city and county of Philadelphia, in the State of Pennsylvania, have invented cert-ain new and useful Improvements in Dust-Beaters, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, of which- Figure l isa side elevation; Fig. Q, an edge elevation.

The object of this invention is to provide a cheap, simple, and ellicientdevice for beating furniture, garments, &c., to remove dust therefrom.

The exact nature of the invention will appear from the following specification in connection with the accompanying drawings.

ln carrying out my invention I take a round tubular piece of braided elastic wire 1 of suitable length and set the same by compression in the form of a lattened tube, so that it will formin cross-section an elongated ellipse. I then bend this flattened tube over upon itself about midway of its length, thus having two contiguous superposed limbs 1, the free ends of which are brought together and secured to a suitable handle 2.

In using the device the handle is held by the hand, and the garment or other article to be cleaned of dust is struck with the beater flatwise.

The beater is elastic as a whole, and each of the wires being very elastic and there being' many of them crossing each other the fabric being operated upon is struck at numerous points, thereby bringing out the dust very et'- fectually, and the wires being also light the beating will not injure the fabric.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent- The hereinbefore described dustbeater, comprising a flattened tube of elastic braided wire bent upon itself, and having its free ends secured to a suitable handle, substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof l have hereunto affixed my signature this 23d day of May, A. I). 1904.
