-W'orccster, county of Worcester, und `Stato of Massachusetts, have invented new and useful Ini rovements in Vtoven Ilose, ofl

which the allowing is n description.

This 'invention relates to multiple ply woven hose mid it has for its object the production of a ver -strong hose of this type which has tho ies solidly woven together lia to twist or sqiiirin uiidcr pressure.

In two ply woven hose, us ordinarily ronstiucted, the two lies are entirely dirtiiiet froiii cach other, tlie fabrics being in either i These two fabrics are woven independently und the sinailer ono drawn iiisido the larger one, thus iproducing the onlinary jacket hose of t ie. trade. 1 In some. instances the two lies are woven or stitched together, and in t iat case the fabrics are of plain weave. llose made'iii either of the. wa 's above stated is not entirely set isfuctory, tis it. is liable to twist und sqiiiriii under pressure und the t-wo plies are not so iiiiited :is to act :is a unitary structure.

The hose which foi-ins the present invention is frm fioin the defects nbovo nieno tioneil-and, described iii general terms. it iiinv be said to consist of :i plum-lily of piies Y which am till woven with o twill, the spinils of the twills iii .fiil`iii'eiit :lies of the fobrie.
