number, these being the posts, which, in ac Be it known that I, CHARLES 1L. Mioiion,

cordance with the preferred embodiment of my invention, are flexible or Chicago Heights, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented a new and rial, such as useful Improvement in Fences, of which the following is a specification.

My object is to provide a novel, simple and inexpensive construction of fence which will be highly effective to resist strains exerted against it and will preserve the proper alinement of its posts.

Referring to the accompanying draw- 01 v ing-Figure l is a broken view in elevation example the force applied by cattle, horses of a once constructed in i and hereinafter referred to, and a desirable form of the posts 4 is illustrated in crosssection in Fig. 3. i

The posts 4 are preferably anchored in the ground with the upper point of anchorage below the ground in any suitable manner, as for example, as illustrated, namely, by embedding the lower ends of the posts t in lln constructing fences as hitherto probod' vided, it has been the aim and object to proder certain conditions when force is exerted laterally'against it, this view being taken at the line 2 on Fig. 1 and viewed in the direction of the arrow and Fig. 3, an enlarged section taken at the line on Fig. 2 and viewed in the direction of the arrow.

1e upper surfaces of said bodies to extend below the level of the ground preferably about eight inches, with the soil covering the bodies 5, as represented, of the one-shown in Fig. 2.

anchor them in the ground, that they will present a degree of rigidity sufficient to resistall of the lateral strains to which-they are subjected in use, in order that proper alinement of the fence be maintained, with the result that the fence-posts required are relatively expensive.

My improved fence is based upon a principle radically different from that stated and involves, in its broadest conception, the use of posts soconstructed that when force them, they will i of the applied force, at will spring back into the normal erect force is removed the anchorages 5 operates to resist in a measure, depending on the character and compactness "of the soil, the flexing of the posts 4 immediately above the anchorage, very much in the same manner as afeatherspring operates, and serves to minimize the strain upon the posts 4 at their points of connection with the anchorages 5, the said superposed portions of the soil serving to transform into tensile stresses on the posts what otherwise would he in a great measure,

or spent.

In the drawing in which my invention is illustrated in its preferred embodiment, 3 shearing stresses.

represents the end or corner-posts of the The fence-posts 3 and 4, as is ence a comparative distance apart, these or barrier,

port the partition, posts being preferably of such construction resented at 6. This medium may be of any d so, braced, anchored or otherwise se- 7 suitable form, that shown being the ordinary cured in the ground that they will be rigid wire-mesh secured to the posts of the fence and unyielding, these posts as shown being r in any suitable manne formed of concrete. The line-posts, or in It will be readily understood from the posts which are located foregoing description that when force is between the end or corner-posts 3, are repdirected laterally against the fence, either resented at 4 and are comparatively large in at the part 6 or one of the posts 4, as by an usual, supmedlum repanimal running against it, the fence1will yield under the force, but will immediately spring back into normal, erect condition as soon as the force is removed, so that the proper alinement of the fence is maintained. Another advantage arising from my im-' proved fence is that an animal will not lie against it as it yields under the force exerted by the animal, with this manifest advantage. I What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is- A fence structure comprising rigid endposts comparatively separated, and a plu rality of resilient line-posts therebetween for 15 supporting the fence wires, said resilient line-posts having their lower ends provided with enlarged anchoring bases below the ground level together with a portion of the resilient body thereof whereby said structure is adapted to yield intermediate its ends under lateral pressure and to return to place when such pressure is removed.
