Description

A of two rods c, one directly over the other.

aint @ffm WILLIAM I). IIILLIS, OF ELGIN, ILLINOIS.

Letters Patent No. 110,234, dated December 20, 1870.

` ll'llPROVEMENfl IN FENCES.

The Schedule referred to in these Letters If'atent and making part of the sanne.,

To all whom it may concer-n:

Be it'known that I, WILLIAMD. HILLIS, of Elgin, in the county of Kane and State of Illinois, have invented a. new and improved Fence; and I do hereby declare the 'following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawing makinr a part of this specifica--A tion, in which- Figure l lis a perspective view.

Figure' 2 is a horizontal section, Ashowing the position of the iron rods in the slots in the iron plates spiked to the posts.

This invention is an improvement on lthe fence for which Letters Patent of the United States were granted to me April 3, 1866, and has for its object to cheapen the construction of the same, and to confer other advantages, hereinafter specified. Y l

A are posts, which are bored and inort'sed. l

Iron plates, b, provided with slots, c, are spiked to the posts A, so that the slots c cover 'the mortises.

The pickets d are also bored and mortised.

The upper and lower mortises, both in the posts A and pickets d, are for the reception of the iron rods c, and of course must correspond with the rods in size. .The 'other mortises, being for the wires f, are necessarily smaller. Y

The slots c are made large enough to admit the ends Ihe rods are entered from opposite sides, and pressed down side by side in the bottoni of the slot c.

. The rods e are round iron, of any suitable size, rolled iiat with the exception ofrthat portion in mortises in the posts A and pickets d.

The postsl are placed sixteen anda half feet apart,

more or less, any desired number off pickets being used.

Ihe round places on the iron rods e should correspond numerically wit-h the number of pickets andposts."

The iron rods e are thrust into the inortises in the pickets, the round portion restingin the mortise. 'lhe rod. is then twisted halfround, so that an edge and a dat side are presented alternately between the pickets and posts. In this manner the pickets are prevented from slipping backand forth on .the rods.

'I he round portion at` the ends of the rod e need he only long enough to forni a 'kind of head on the rod. Ihese heads prevent the rods from being drawn past one another in the vslots c.

A small wedge, g, is 'driven in the slot c, over the ends of the rods e, to prevent them from working up `one above the other.

A scantling or rail, h, is spiked at each' end to the tops of the posts A,

'An iron strap, i, is passed beneath the'upper rod c, audits ends spiked or nailed to the rail 7i, centrally.

Any .desired number of wires j' may be introduced to fill up the space between-the rods e. Having thus described my invention,

What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

The improvedfence herein described,`consisting of the rods e c, plates b b, wires f j', posts A A, pickets 'l (l, cap-rail h, andstraps it, each constructed and arranged as specified.

lWitnesses: r WILLIAM D. HILLIS.
