CRQQUET-SET.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 280,807, dated July 10, 1883. Application filed February :26. 1883. (No model.)

lets, wickets, and stakes, all. or either, but.

particularly the balls, made lum inous by the application of a luminous substance, for enabling the balls and other articles to be found more readily when covered or hidden by the grass or leaves, and particularly to enable the game to be played inthe cool evenings, when it may be more comfortable than in the hot sun, all as hereinafter more fully described.

Reference is to be had to theaccompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification,

in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a luminous croquet-ball with an opaque or non-luminous Fig. 2 is a similar view of a ball with a broken band of opaque character for its distinctive mark.

Fig. 3 is a side elevation of a mallet with two opaque bands, and Fig. 4 is a side elevation of a mallet with twov broken opaque bands.

The balls a, mallets I), wickets and stakes are all to be covered with coatings of luminous substance of any approved kind, to shine in the darkness, fordistinguishing them.

The game of croquet can be played with greater accuracy in the evening with these illu minated sets, as all confusing objects between the ball and the wicket or other ball are lost in the darkness, and one projects the line of flight with mathematical accuracy. The ball of each player can be distinguished from an other by any approved system of opaque marks. For instance, one ball can be entirely luminous; another have an opaque or non-luminous band around it; another a broken. or dotted line; another two unbroken bands, two broken bands; two unbroken bands crossed; two broken bands crossed; a broken and an unbroken line, and so on; and the mallets may be marked to correspond, or the balls may be numbered and the mallets numbered to correspond.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent The improved croquet sets consisting of balls, mallets, wickets, and stakes, the surfaces of which are luminous in whole or in part, substantially as described.
