UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.
DEWITT O. OREGIER, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.
' IMPRovMEN-r IN c oMBINEo FIRE AND DRINKING HvoRANT's.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 173,768, dated February 22, 1876; application filed l September 20, 1875.
To all whom 'it may concern:
Be it known that I, DEWITT C. CREGIER, of Chicago, in the State of Illinois, have invented a new and useful Combined Fire and Drinking Hydrant; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full and correct description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, in Which- Figure 1 is a vertical central section of the hydrant. Fig. 2 is a horizontal section-on line X X of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a horizontal section on line y y of Fig. l.
. Thesame part is marked by the same letter of reference in the severalligureswhere it occurs. I
The nature of my invention consists in the convenient,combination in one appara-tus Vof a hydrant for the attachment of hose, adrink- .ing-fountain for men, and a watering-basin for animals, all so arranged as not to interfere with one another, 'substantially in the Inanner hereinafter more fully `set forth.
In the drawing, A marks the socket for the reception of the branch pipe from the street- Inainlcading to a chamber from which`rises the main stem or water-channel ofthe hydrant,
' J through a pipe, K, passing up inside an independent channel, N, cast in the water-way of the hydrant. Below the nozzle J is placed a shelf, G, 011 which a drinking-cup may rest.
. This shelf is provided with a drip', M, through which the surplus water fallsinto the basin I, which forms the base of the hydrant, and af- The overflow from this basin is conducted into the gutter or sewer.
As the drinking-water pipe opensV at the lowery end below the main valve-seat of the the head-pressure, and ows freely when the handle F is depressed and the valve D is opened. When the handle F is released, the Weight of the rod E closes the valve IAD, which is provided with a suitable waste-opening, so that no water can stand in the pipe above D.
' In tire-hydrants provided with a supplemental valve, H, this drinking-pipe attach-i mentmay be applied or disconnected without sh uttin g oft' the water in the street-mains. Though when I make a hydrant for the recep.-A tion of this drinking attachment I prefer to cast the channel B and attach the pipes in the man ner hereinbefore described, yet the attachment may be made to existing hydrants, in which no such provision is made, by the use of the ordinary pipe and fittings.
In winter the drinking attachment can be removed, andthe opening with which pipe K is connected be plugged up.
It is obvious that thelpipe K might, if preferred, be carried down 'and connected directly with the branch pipe or streetman, and that the channel N might be cast the entire length of the hydrant, and provided with a cock operated in the same manner as D.
These modifications I have contemplated; but I have described and represented the form of hydrant which I have essayed and prefer. I
What I claim isp' 1. rlhe combination, with a tire-hydrant, provided with one or more hosenozzles, I), of
rthe pipe K, cock D, rod E, handle F, spout J,
shelfGr, and basin I, all constructed, arranged,
and operating substantialiy in the manner and for lthe purposes specified.
2.1lhe combination, in a hydrant, of the 'channel B, pipe K, provided with a cock, D, operated as described, spout J, and channel JN, all arranged and operated as set forth.
3. A fire-hydrant, combined with a drink` ing-fountain for men and a watering-basin for animals, the hydrant and drinking devices operating independently of each other, and
tion jsigned and witnessed at Chicago 4this 10th day of September, A. D. 1875. DEWITT G. GREGIER. y Witnesses:
