Appliqgtion-filed November 1. 1907 Serlel No. 400.191.
Te all whom it may concern:
Be it known that 1, Jesse E. WATsoN, a
ed to the discharge tube 9 extends to the upper portion. of the fountain tube 7, said citizen of the United States, residing at Penbraces being connected at their opposite ends sacole, in the county of Escambia and State of Florida, have invented new and useful- Improvements in Scrubbing-Brushes, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to fountain scrubhing brushes, and one ofthe principal objects ofv the same is to provide means whereby a quantity of water may be carriedby the brush and "fed to the bristles whenever required.
Another object of the invention is to provide a fountain scrubbing brush of simple construction which will be comparatively light in weight, will carry the required quantity of water, which may be immediately cut oil when required.
These and other objects may be attained by means of the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of a fountain brus made in accordance with my invention. of the same. Fig. 3 is a sectional view on the line 3--3 of Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is a similar view on the line 44, Fig. 2.
Referring to the drawing for a; more specific description of my invention, the numeral 1 designates the brush head provided with suitable bristles 2 secured to said head. A handle extends through rings 4 and at its lower end is securedto the brush head by a screw 5.
A cylindrical water reservoir 6' connected Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional viewat its lower end to a cylindrical fountain tube 7 is attached by means of the metal rings 4 to the handle 3. closed at its opposite ends and is provided centrally with an outlet pipe ts which cominunicates'with a discharge tube 9 having a series of nipples 10 comnuniicating therewith and terminating within the bodyof the bristles below the brush headf A suitable cock or cut-off valve U is mounted in the outlet pipe 8 and a pair of braces 12 connect- The fountain tube '7 is' by solder t0 the parts referred to. The reser .voir 6 is provided with a funnel-like upper end 13 to provide means for readily filling the same Withwater, and a plug or stopper 17 is provided for closing the opening in said funnel-like top, said plug being connected by a chain 14 to an eye 15 secured to the handle .3;
From the foregoing it will be obviousthat a brush made in accordance with iny-inv'en tion, having the reservoir and fountain tube properly filled with water, will cover a large surface, and that the quantity of water to be fed to brush may be regulated by means of the valve or cook 1].
My invention is, of simple construction,
cannot readily get out of order, can be menufactured at low cost and is very elticient for its purpose.
Having thus described the invention, whatis claimed as new is: i 1

A fountain brush comprisinga brush back provlded with bristles, a handle secured thereto, a reservoir connected to the brush handle, a fountaintube communicat ingwvith said reservoir, an outlet pipe provided with a cut-off valve, and a discharge tube provided with a series of nipples, said nipples passing through the brush back. 4
' 2.
