with the path of the rays, the bore being of suflicient diameter to allow unobstructed passage for the rays, the front of saidbarrel being provided with the dished guard member and the nipple 14. p As shown in Fig. 3 the forward end of the barrel 12 is internally threaded for interen gagement with the threaded portion of the nipple 1 1, said nipple being provided with the flange 14 to-lay hold ofiwhen screwing on or unscrew ing,.an'c l for attainmentof a tight joint between said nipple and said guard, line with the rays. 7

It is to be understoodthat saidadapter and nipple maybe composed of any suitable mae tcrial andmadeeither separately or in one g V trable by the ultraviolet ray such as quartz a quartz nipple would obviously admit of a piece, as shown in Fig. 5, for instance, both said partscould be cast of quartz glass, or

the adapter element thereof could be of metal and the nipple element ofmaterial penesmaller nipple being used without restricting the field of the rays as would be the case if a metal nipple of relatively." small internaldi- I which rises from thepoint offconnectionand thenturnsto the right for a suitable distance j in axial alignment with said barrel 12. The

end of tube 16is preferably closed and has th'e'perforation 17 provided adjacent the 'closedend, which end'may be covered with i a suitable sheathing 18, similarly closed and perforated to register with the perforation 17'. The outlet of the perforation l9 isfpro- Vided-with afdrain-tube 20.

The remote end of the hose 21 connectswiththe bottom of the tank22'suspended by the" rope 23 passing over the pulley 24:. down:

wardly to ah ook 25 on the wall 26, aseries of loops as 27,28 and 29 being providedin said rope for' interengagement with the hook 25,

or other suitable means to enable the tank 22 tobe suspended atvarious levels. When put inoperation the inflow of water-soon fills' the a urethravwhich causesa' refltnv through the tube 16, entering saidtubeby the perforation 17 and escaping bythe outlet means 19, whiehfac t irrigates and cleanses the tissues of the urethralavall. v The ultra-violet energy mayor maynot be employeolat this stage of the treatment. The next stepuis to raise the tank22 from loop to loop until the 7 fwater pressure dijstends the urethra to, its 7 full extent thus, allowing the said rays, now

turned on, to exert'their germicidal energy the nipple being axially perforated'in upon the cleansed tissue of the urethral canal and associated tissue;

In the second embodiment of, my invention, 1

well shown'in Fig. 5, the nipple 14 is shown formed integral with the body of the apparatus. The irrigation scheme, while essentially the same in principle, is accomplished by different means; inasmuch as the tube 15 enters the barrel 12'and is bent axially to the right for a suitable distance into the ure thra; bythis means the water flows back into the urethra withinsaidtube andreflows be- 1 tween said tube andthe urethral wall, and escapesthroughthe perforation 19 which is smaller than the intake, therefore adapted to set up, fluid pressure within the apparatus,

In said first form the inflow is in the direction of said rays and the refiow against said rays, whereas in the second form "the r'elative directions of said rays and said floware reversed; r I p e The feathered arrows indicate the path of the radio-activeenergyf l/Vith regard to the outlet 19 with the extension 20, the latter ispreferably a rubber tube which 'may'obviously be choked regu- V latively by such means as a Murphy clampf? too, Well known to need illustration, or by other suitable means;

; n is believed that the construction, method of operation and advantages of the [present invention will now be clearly -understood; Thetwo iembodlments of the mventl-onhave been disclosed'in detail by wayof example,

since in actualpractice they attain the fea ture's 'of advantage 1set-forthas being desir e ableink the statement offthe invention and the above description.

"struction and arrangement of parts maybe resorted'to Without departing froin'the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter ,Numerous changes '1n theifcletailsof con claimedor sacrificingany of its-advantages;
