APPLICATION FILED JAR. 6. 1906.
Wi-l'wuaea WMWM mm gamma atfozwzw PATENT @Fhifihl EUGK"GALL.
To all whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that 1, JAMES W. REYNOLDS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicage, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented new and useful Iin rovements in Duck-Cells, of which the fol owing is a specification. I
This invention is an improvement in duckcalls, such as used by sportsmen for calling wild ducks or other wild fowl.
The object of the invention is to provide a device by which different cells can he sounded c uiclrly, as the case requires, te -suit differ ent inds of ducks and which also can be edjusted to vary the sounds, so as to imitate many species of duct: or cther fowl.
With these objects in "v'lW the cell consists of e tube formed in two sections containing e double bill end reed, so tl'iet either end of the tube may he used, the note being varied ac cording to the end used and also according to the position of the bill and reed in the tube, such position being adjustehle es in ey he d sired.
In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is 2. central longitudinal section of the device. Fig. 2 is e cross-section. Fig. 3 is it plan View oi the grooved hill upon. which. the reed is mounted. Fig. 4 is a plan View of the reed.
Referring spl'icilicull v' to the drawings, (3 indicates one section of the pipe, and i the other. These are made oi" wood and are sep arable and are also p erehly in side of diil'er; ent shapes, so tiltll ,hor ondcsn. he quickly distinguished when ti 1 occasion for its use arises. Within the pipe thus formed is brass tube 8, which fits therein at e. snug iit, but which, nex 'crthciess, can be shifted to ward either end es desired, The hill 9 is ill;- ted within said tube and hes therein e chennel 10. The reed "s1 is oieced upon the hill over thechannel and held. in niece by e cork plug 12. As shown, the hill, channel, and reed arc l(. uhle--ended, so that the device may be sounded by hi wing into either end.

The parts are all fitted together sufficiently snug to hold. them in place; but any of them can be moved to vary the note as desired. Thus the brass tube and the parts within the some may all he moved toward or from one end of the outer case, which has the effect of varying the sounds produced by blowing in the res ective ends. Also the plug 12 may be pus ed toward either end of the brass tube, and thus vary the length of the respecive ends of the reed, and consequently var the vibration and sound produced by eac end. The groove in the hill is of coin hire; tively great depth, so thet the soun will readily pass through the seine, and thus from either end of the device The reed may also be bent more at one end then at the other. Consequently a wide range of sound may be produced and two diil'erent cells at all times instantly available, one being produced by blowing into one end of the pipe and the other by blowing into the othrr end.
l. A duclecsll comprising u pipe, and ndouhle-endod hill and reed held within the same, wherchy it may he sounded from either end of the pipe.
2. A duclccell comprising 9. (l0Ul)l -QTlLlL(l pipe having moons todistinguish the respective ends, and e double-ended reed held within the same mid mljustnhlo therein to vary the note of each end.
3. A duels-cull comprising a. )ipeiormed in two sections, u tube within tie pipe, over (IL/um Pnosoiin, ll. i liii'rcnchou.
