Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented April 27', 1909.

Application filed June 10, 1907, Serial No. 878,249. Renewed December 80, 1908. Serial No. 469,991.

certain novel and durable features in the general construction of the same, as will be hereinafter set forth. 4

In the drawing, Figure 1 is an elevation of a brush, embodying the improved features. Fig. 2 is a sectional elevation; and Fig. 3 is a transverse section.

A represents a tubular handle, which will ordinarily be composed of Wood and incloses a water conducting tube B inserted longitudinally therethrough.

The brush proper consists of an outside brush part C and an inside part D which are constructed separately and then assembled incompleting the structure or article in its entirety. The bristles composing the outside part C are secured in a twisted wire core 4, and the bristles forming the inside part D are secured in a twisted wire core 5, as clearly shown in Figs. 2 and 3. The bristles are bunched so as to extend radially in all directions from the center outward and present the finished cylindrical contour shown.

The brush part of the tube B is bent around to form the elon ated oval supporting frame 6, the termina plug end of which is bent inward and secured in a socket or ferrule 7 mounted on the end of the handle A. The outer end of the wire core 5 is securely looped around the corresponding end of the tubular frame 6, and then extends longitudinally between the separated sides of said frameand has the free end secured in the socket 7. By this means the inside center part of the brush is properly secured in place and is. further reinforced by the ressure of theinclosing outside art 0. T e outside brii'sh part 0 is then out around into the inverted U-shaped form shown and the terminal ends 8 of the wire core 4 being inserted inthe socket and secured to the tubular frame by wire-clips 9 and 10. At the outer end the core 4 is further secured to the frame 6 by another clip 11, all as best shown in Fig.

2. When the outside art is bent around mto its assembled position, the spring of the core 4 and the pressure of the bearing brush surfaces will provide a uniform space 13 be-.

tween the core and tubular frame in preserving a symmetrical appearance.

The tubular frame is provided on one side with a number of minute perforations 14 through which the water is sprayed at the same time the brush is being used, thus rendering the operation of bathing more convenient and efiective.

One end of a rubber or flexible tube 15 will be connected to the receiving end of the tube B, and the other end to a fountain (not.

shown) or other source of supply.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is 1. A brush of the class described, comprising a handle, a water conducting tube inserted longitudinally therethrough and having the end bent around into an elongated frame-part provided with perforations, an

innfer brush-part having a twisted wire core secured to said elongated frame, an outer brush part having a U-shaped core, and a socket mounted on said handle and adapted to receive the free ends of the core-parts.

2. A brush of the class described, comprisa tubular handle, a water conducting In testimony whereof I allix my signature,

in presence of two Witnesses.
