No. 877,076. I PATENTED JAN. 21, 1908.






20 v generally to improve this. class of devices 1 *Be it known thatI, SIMON S. HAGEMAN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Abilene} tlie' county of Dickinson and -="State'"of Kansas, have invented anew and useful Column,xof which. the following is a specific t o This invention relates to the construction of buildings and more particularly to a pillar or column especially designed for use in constructing show windows, hot houses and similar structures having transparent walls.

The object of the invention is to provide a pillar or column having laterally extending attaching flan es which form supports for the plates or s abs constituting the walls of a building, said flanges being provided with spaced perforations for the reception of bolts orsimilar fastening devices.

A still further object of the invention is so as to increase their utility, durability, and efficiency.

Further objects and advantages will ap- -pear in the following description, it being understood that various changes inform, proportions and minor details of construction may be resorted to within the scope of the appended; claims.

' spective view of a portion of a show-window In theaccompanyingdrawings forming a part of this specification: Figure 1 is a perconstructed of pillars or columns made in accordance with my invention." Fig. 2 is a perspective view of one of the pillars or columns detached. Fig. 3 is a similar view Fig. 4 is a plan view showing the manner of of one of the partition pillars or columns.

arranging the pillars in constructing a hothouseor other building. .Fig. 5 is a front elevation showing the manner of connecting the pillars or columns when the lattervare arranged in superposed order for constructing a building of more than one story in especially designed for use in the construction of show-windows, hot-houses and similar transparent structures and in Fig.

1 of the drawings several of said pillars are shown connected by transparent slabs to 1 ff s e ificat1omr Letters .iBatent ,1

form the display front 'or show-window of a store;

The column comprises a. cylindrical body ly' cast or otherwise I ortion 5 prefera formed of metal and provided with o positely disposed integral ca s or best s 6. having smooth bearing s aces 7- for engagement with the correspondingly flat bearing surface of an adjacent column when several of said columns are arranged in superposed order in erecting a building or other structure of more than one story in height.

The columns are formed gularly disposed attaching flanges 8 which extend longitudinally of the column and connect. the caps 6, as shown, said flanges being extended the entire length of the column and having their opposite ends terminating flush with the adjacent bearing surfaces 7.

The flanges 8 form sup orts for and bear against the transparent s abs 9 constituting the display window, said flanges bein provided with spacedperforations 10 for t e reception of bolts or similar fastening devices 11 which pierce the slabs 9 and serve to detachably secure said slabs to the adjacent columns.

The flanges on the several columns are arranged at different angles, the flanges\of the corner posts or columns 5 being disposed at with integral an- I' substantially right angles to each other while the flanges of the intermediate pillars or columns 5 are arranged at an obtuse angle so that the adjacent transparent plates will be inclined towards the interior of the building and thus form an approach to the door 12.

When erecting a dwelling house, hot-house or similar structure having interior c'ompartments, some of the columns or pillars are rov'ided with oppositely disposed attac 'ng flanges disposed in alinement with each other and to which the partition slabs 13 are attached, as best shown in Figs. 2 and 4 of the drawings. I

When a building two or more stories hi h is to be erected the columns or pillars may e arranged .in superposed order with their adv jacent bearing faces 7 disposed in contact with each other and with the attaching flanges arranged in vertical alinement, as best shown in Fig. 5 of the drawings, and in which positionthe flanges may be readily coupled by means of tie plates 14 which bear 1 against theflanges and are rigidly secured thereto "by bolts .017 similar fastening dc vices 15.

It will of course beunderstood that, if desired, metal or wooden slabs may be substituted for the transparen'l slabs 9 when erecting certain kinds of buildings such as dwelling houses and the like. It-will also beuntudinally of the co uixm and formed integral with the body dportionand caps, said flanges, v laterally beyond the exterior i being extende I walls of the caps and provided with spaced v derstood that the colunms may be made in different sizes and shapes and formed of metal, wood, stone, cement or other suitable material; i i

Having thusdescribed the invention what i is claimed is:

1. A column including a body ortion hav "ingits opposite ends {Provided wlth'terrni'nal caps; and attachin anges extending longi- "perforations for the reception of fastening devices. 7

2. In building construction, a plurality of superposed columns each provided with a terminal cap havin a flat bearing surface for enga ement with t e flat bearing surface of ana jacent column, integral flanges-extends mg laterally from each column and connectin the presence of two witness'es.
