Tooth-Brushes and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of theinvention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to tooth brushes, and has for its primary object to provide a device of this character including essentially a handle composed of a plurality of extensible sections, the end or relatively large handle section constituting a'case or holder for containing the other handle sections and brush.

Another object is to provide a closure for the large handle section or casing having apertures therein permitting ventilation.

open end. The intermediate section lVith these and other objects in view, the invention conslsts 1n the novel construction, arrangement and formation of parts as will be hereinafter specifically described, claimed i and illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 represents a longitudinal sectional view through the improved tooth brush. Fig. 2 represents a sectional view through the brush illustrating the latter in folded or collapsed position. Fig. 8 represents an end elevation of the brush extended, and Fig. 4 represents a perspective view of the intermediate handle section removed.

Referring to the drawing in detail, wherein similar reference numerals designate corresponding parts throughout the several views, the numeral indicates gen erally the handle of the tooth brush, which is composed. of a plurality of sections designated by the numerals 6, 7-and S. The end or relatively large handle section (3 is closed at one end 9 and slidably receives the intermediate handle section 7 in its opposite 7 is tapered from its inner to its outer end to Specification of Letters Patent.

prevent withdrawal of the section. 8 which carries the brush head 10 in which are secured the bristles 11. The intermediate section is formed with a longitudinal slot 12 adapted, when the parts are collapsed to receive the bristles 11 of the brush.

A closure or cap 13 is fittedupon the end of the relatively large handle or holder section 6 and the finger nail-is inserted in the notch 15 formed adjacent theend oi": the brush head 10 and the latter is -;1Wn outwardly with relation to the section 6, thus moving the parts to extended or operative position, as illustrated in Fig. 1. After using the brush the parts are collapsed by applying pressure to the opposite ends of the head 10 and the section (5 and the cap 13 is replaced upon c open end of the section 6, thus housing x u'ush and reducing the size of the latter .o such an extentthat it may be conveniently carried in the pocket of the user.

lVhat I claim A tooth brush including a plurality of collapsible telescoping sections. a brush head carried by one of said sections, bristles in said head. the intermediate section tapering toward the brush carrying section and provided with a longitudinal slot extending from the tapered end to nearly the entire length of said section adapted to receive the bristles when the sections are collapsed and a. closure for the open end of the outer section.
