PATENT OFFICE.

SAMUEL H. MITCHELL, OF LAGON, ILLINOIS.

IMPROVEMENT IN CORN-HUSKERS AND PICKERS.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 126,565, dated May 7, 1872.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, SAMUEL H. MITCHELL, of Lacon, inthe county of Marshall, in the State of Illinois, have invented a Corn-Husker or Picker; and do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference beinghad to the annexed drawing makin ga part ofthis specifica-tion, in which like letters of reference refer to like parts, and in whioh- Figure l represents a perspective view; Fig. 2, a side elevation or longitudinal view; Fig. 3, end view.

This invention consists of two metal plates conjoined at one end in a hinge, which fits into the angle at the origin of the thumb and finger of the operator or cornpicker. -Each plate is respectively fastened to a leathern iin ger and thumb stall, and each stall terminates at the wrist in a wrist-strap. The points or outer ends of the plates are bent in the shape of teeth toward each other.

A A represent the two plates, which are nearly parallel with each other when closed, each about one inch wide and about the length ofthe forenger, and are united together b y a hinge, a, at the origin of the forelinger and the thumb of the wearer, forming with the bent outer ends a jaw or teeth, which lock into each other. The teeth g h are triangular, one tooth being on one plate, and this one enters between the two teeth of the other plate. B is a thumb-stall, of leather or other flexible material, which may be riveted or otherwise fastened to the lower plate, and closed by lace or string f passing through a series of perforations along the opposite edges of the stall,77

and terminating in a strap, b, which is fastened to the wrist-strap D. G is a similar stall for the foretinger, with a similar fastening or fastenings to those ofthe thumb-stall B-z`. e., lace e, strap c', the latter fastened to the wriststrap I). I), the wrist-strap, which unites the two straps b c of the t* stalls B C, and is fastened by a buckle, d, or similar fastening.

The operation ot' this invention is as follows: The forelinger is placed within the upper stall C, and the thumb ot' the wearer in the stall B. The wrist-strap is then buckled after drawing the bushing-plates A A or hinge a of same into the angle between the origin ot' the thumb and forefinger. The husker can now be used advantageously for holding and breaking off an car of corn from a stalk without the abrasion of the hand or fingers, as the plates A A are the only points in contact with the earof corn, and the leather stalls protect the sides of the finger and thumb. The teeth g h form a strong stay by interlocking, and preserve the hold of the husker on the ear of corn.

What I claim as my invention is- The parallel hinged plates A A, with hinge a and terminal teeth g h, in combination with the linger and thumb-stalls B C, respectively, straps b c', and Wriststrap D, substantially as and for the purposes described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing cornhusker I have hereunto set my hand this I7 th day of February, 1872.
