Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description and it will be understood that changes in the specific structure shown and described may be made within the scope of the claims without departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the drawings forming a portion of this specification, and in which like numerals of reference indicate similar arts in the several views, Figure 1 is a top p an view of a mattress showing the application of the resent invention thereto, Fig. 2 is a vertica longi tudinal sectional view,Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the protector detached, Fig. 4 is a sectional view of aslightly modified form of my invention. v

Referring now" more particularly to the drawings, there is shown abed protectorcomprising a cloth 5 of water roof material,

' the threaded portion 9, the needle is proand located at the center of t is cloth, there is shown a depending tube 6 in the form of an elongated hollow needle, having a sharpened lower end 7. I The needle isprovided with a plurality of dischargeipassages 8, at its lower end, and at the up or end, the needle is provided with a threa ed portion 9 disposed in a passage 10 formed in the cloth 5. Beneath vided with a flange 11 which is-thus disposed beneath the cloth. The threaded portion 9 is arranged to receive a flat nut 12 whereby the needle is securely held to the cloth. The needle or tube is thus arranged for insertion through a mattress A, as shown in the drawings and extends beneath the mattress and has its lower end disposed above a bed-pa or other suitable vessel.v

In the form of the invention disclosed in Fig i of the drawings, there is shown a receiv ng portion 0, consisting of a lower cir-' oular section of water-proof cloth B, having a relatively large central opening A, in which a circular head 12 is located, this head being Patented Sept. 22, 1908.

An upper section of waterproof mate rial C, somewhat larger than the section B, is secured at its'edges to sec tion B, and has its central portion disposed upon the head 12, to which it is secured by The section means of fastening devices 13. C has'af central opening C registering with the bore of the needle .6, and by reason of the fact that the section'C is somewhat larger.-

than the section D, a space Z is formed at the edge portion of the receptacle C and is prov I v1 ed with a valve 14, through which air may be forced, the receiving portion of the receptacle thus slanting/toward the opening C for the passage of liquid therethrough.
