PATENT@ QFFICE;

An electric lighting means is incorporated in the umbrella kstructure and is seen Ato `Vcomprise a'suitableelectric'power source such as ajstandard type .of cylindricaldry cell battery 20 insertedfin a compartment 13 inthe handle H, a switch 21 conveniently positioned adjacent the handle, and a conductor wire 22 passing through vthetubular rodR for'connecting Asaid rbattery to a plurality of Vlights 301and' 31' mounted in the umbrella tip k12 to .illuminate the umbrella on the exteriorrand inner side ofthe cover C, as shown in Figs1and 2.

Thebody portion of thel handleV H `preferably, comprises a. sheet vmetal casing 14, the

free vend llfthereofbeingprovided: with a l suitable Vclosure for the compartment 13 such as a demountable knob 15'. 'lheflatter,hasr a coil spring 15a for electrically connecting.- kthe outer ,terminal 20EL of the battery-20 to the handle casing 14 in the Wellv understood lilre,`-secured therein into, which the end 17 is normally. frspaced over' the Vhandle Hso as circuit from the battery to the lights is com- `The conzductoriwire 22 is anchored at its 'lower end 22u .tof a fixed terminal Contactv n 23' mountedon the plug 16r and is insulated "from the rodl R, said vcontact 23 being connectedto the central .terminal 2Ob of thc bat#I Vtery20; 'l

.As will be lseen from Figsfl andv v2, lthe,

l'manner; `Thefother end 14b of said casing I'naywhavev a plug 16 made of anysuitable insulatingmaterial such/'as wood, libre, or the of the rodi R eXtendsan'd is firmly anchored. TheV swit'ch21is here fseen to comprise a ymetallic disc 121aavl1'ich Vis loosely mounted for limited vmovement along the'rodR and umbrella tip 12 forms a housing'for thelights "30 and 3.1` of. the electric" lighting means andmay be made-of transparent material such? as Celluloid, bakelite,"or thelike f substance." 'n Said housing 12 is preferably constructed of two parts, a lower and upper` part 12u and 12b respectively, within which a chamber 12Cis `provided Jrior receiving said lights. l

The lower part 12a is iXedly fitted into a mounting piece 33 which is made to receive, and is anchored to the upper 'end18 oit the rod R, said part 12 serving to rigdly s-u-pport the notched iitting 11 o' the :traine l?.

The upper part 12b which forms the tip end of the umbrella is demountably secured in position vte abut the lower part 12EL by providing a quickly detacl'iable connecting inea-ns Yo1 any suitable construction, as, for example, an internally threaded projecting portion .11a on said notched iirtting 11 into which is screwed the exteriorly threaded.

inner end :portion 12dl ofsaid part 12".

Reiner-ably mounted to extend downwardly 'from the tcp :end off the housing part 12b into the Lchamber 12C, there is a .lamp socket 80LL and lamp 30b which *form* the light 30. A similar lamp `socket 31a land 'lamp 31 forming the `light 31 is mounted to extend upwardly into the upper vend of the chamber portion 12 in the part 12b.

To connect the lamps b .and B11 to the power vsupply tl-rroulgh the conductor wire 22, a,-clet achable itappingnieans oi suitable construction 'may ybe ,provided such as a disc 40 hav-ing contacts ft-QMand 110') thereon. Said disc 40 is :clamped between the sockets 430a a'gnd v31a "so that the center 'Contact terminals 30 and v31C` 4and the shell Vcontact `term-'mals d and 31 from the lamps 30" and 31h, respectively, with said disc contacts 40a and 110?, respectively, :as shown inl Figs. 2-and 5. The disc Contact 10a may .serve `to termi-nate the upper end of .the yconductor wire 2 2, the .upper portion "of which extends through fa Vpassage 12e )provided in the wall of ith'e chamber 12 in the housing ipart 12L alongsidethersocket The other disc contact 401 may be grounded `fto Athe fra-me VF anduod in any suitable manner. As here shown there is a spring blade 41-1 selcured vto extend t-rom `said ,Contact 101 which iis bent ito iia into .a A,pocket 12E lprovided fbetween housing vpart 12'LL .and the Inotched iitting 11, the blade contacting with said tting and the latterelectricallly connecting at 11 with the red R fthrcugh Jche mounting piece 33.

The control .now be apparent.. Vpressingthe switch disc 21a, it is tilted, closing the circuit from the `battery `terminal Y20a to the rod R .through the lrand'le [casing 111 lhneb 15. -The current will Ythen fflo-w from the :battery `terminal 201) through :conductor :wires 22, thence to the lamps f30 and V'31 and then to the rod Rthrough the blade :411 and fitting 83 grounded lto said rod, the circuit being conilpleted lthroughthe switch 2-1 to the 'battery terminalQOfP. The illights@ and 31 instead ci the lighting means will shown a `rneditied un-ibrella tip construction embodying the invention.Y

Here the tip or .housing 112 is censtr-ucted of instal, the flower housing part 112l being made integra-l with the notched member 111, and the upper flic-using .part 112b being screwed into the threaded :projecting portion 111e of said member 111.

provided with vopenings 112C having transparent windows 120 made of Celluloid for ether so ctflled nenbrea'ltable7 material t'l'neugh whichthe light 'from the Llamps 30" and 31b pass..

It will .thus be seen that there provided a device in which 5the several 'objects iof 4this,

invention are achieved land which well adapted to fmeet the conditions of practical use.

As various possible embodiments might be made 'of the ahove inventionfand various 4changes might be made in the embodiment above set forth, it iis to be understood :that

serve as a signal 'to indicate whether The housing 112 all vmatter herein set forth or shown in the Y accompanying` `drawing is to be 'interpreted as illustrative Yand Qnet in a v'limiting sense.

Having thus `described my invention, I claim yas new and desire 4to secure by ELetters Patent 1. 'The combination with an vunrlne'lla having a rod, tip onfone `end of the rod, and -aycollapsi'ble 'lf-rame 'mounted on saidVv tip, of a light positicned to extend inwardly `in said iti-p adapted `to 'illuminate the Iinner side ci' the umbrella. Y

12. The combination with'an lumbrella having a red, a tip on `one end of the rod, and a colla asible fliran'ie mounted on said ti) ont a` plurality of lights positioned within lsaid l-tip fadapted to i uminaeebot'h' interiore-nd exteriorsides oi Ythe iumbrel'la.'v y

In 4a device Io Ithe character described, an iumbrella having a rod, 'a hollow `handle on one end el said rod, a 'tip ontlie other rvend of said Arod and 'lightiiig means comprising la power source encased in said handle, a conductor wire extending through `said rod, `lafinps *connected to said .power source *through said wire mounted entirely within said tip, and a switch mounted between the lhandle Iand rod for controlling said 1lighting Y means, :said rod `and handle `fbeingn`er1nally insulated #freni` each other yand adapted to lao be electrically interconnected on operating of said switch.

4. In combination a rod Carr inv an um-V biella top7 a tip on one end of said-romand lighting means for. illuminating opposite sides of said top mounted in said tip.

5. In combination, ametallic rod carrying i an umbrella top, a tipV on one end'of said rod, and lighting .means for illuminating op posite sides of said top mounted in said tip,

v6. In a device of the character described, in combination With a metal tubular umf brella handle adapted to receive a battery and a metal tubular umbrella rod supporting a light, an insulating piece separating said A'handle and rod, and a metal piece member encompassing saidrodand capable of being .slightly rocked on said insulating piece, the

end of the. handle being situated "so that upon rocking the encompassing piece an electric circuit will be completed between said rod v Vand handle.
