MARY PERCILLER JONES, OF MINERAL CITY, TEXAS.

BABY-JUMPER.

sPncrr-ICATIQN forming part of Letters Patent No. 382,814, dated May 1s, 1888.

Application led November 16, 1887. Serial No. 255,338. (No. model.)

To all whom it may concern: p

Be it known that I, MARY PEROILLER JoNEs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Mineral City, in the county of Bee and State of Texas, have invented 'a new and useful Imv provement in Baby-Jumpers, of which the following is a specication.`

My invention relates to improvements in baby-jumpers, having for its objects the proio vision of a simple, cheap, and durable device to support achild while it is learning to walk.

The invention consists in various novel details of construction, clearly set forth hereinafter in connection with the drawings, where- Figure l is a front view ofthe device. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same. Fig. 3 is a horizontal section on line .r as, Fig. l. Fig. 4 is a similar view on line y y of Fig. 1.

Referring byletter to the drawings, Adesig'- nates the cylinder, open at both ends, and B is a cap on the upper end, having a' depending iiange, b, to fit around the upper end of the cylinder, and the lateral flange b', which is prof vided with a series of perforations. A similar cap, C, is iitted on the lower end of the cylinder, and it is provided with the verticalflange c, to embrace the lower end of the cylinder,

and the lateral iiange c', which is providedA with a series of perforations'which align with the perforations in the flange b.

D D designate rods passing through the said aligned openings in the anges b and c', and they are secured in place by taps on the lower ends. The upper ends of the said rods are provided with eyes d d, which project upward fromthe top of the cap B, y p E represents a spring, which is disposed within the cylinder A, and F represents asup- 4o porting-rod, which passes up through the spring, and is provided at the upper end with a plunger, G, to operate in the cylinder and bear on the upper end of the spring. The said rod operates at the lower end in a bearing or opening, f, which is formed in the center of the cap C.

H designates a swiveled frame, which is attached to the lower end ofthe supporting-rod, and the frame is provided with four or more 5o radial arms, I I, to the outer ends of which are attached the depending eyes h h, for a purpose to be described.

K designates the supporting-garment, which comprises the pants L, provided with a front iiap, L', and the side iiaps, L2 L2, adapted to 55 be folded over and buttoned to the front Hap.

view.)

M designates a waist, which is secured to the top of the said pants, which is adapted to but` 6o ton tightly around the body of the infant, andV N is a skirt which depends from the waist and hangs down to the vfloor to protect the infant from the drafts which circulate on the floor. Notches or arm-holes O O are formed in the upper edge of the waist to receive the arms of the infant, and small eyes P P are also secured to the upper edge of the waist.

It will be seen that the skirt may be omitted in this garment; but I prefer to employ it for 7o the reason given above. Also, the pants might be omitted, as the band or waist around the body of the child would support it; but it will be seen that in order that the said band-might properly support the entire weight of the same 7 5 it would have to be very tightly drawnaround the body, and as this would be uncomfortable I much prefer to use the combination. of the waist and pants. n

R R represent short cords, ropes, or chains, 8o which are provided at the ends with snaphooks. The upper ends of the said cords are adapted to be engaged inthe eyes h h, and the lower ends areengaged in the eyes P P on the upper edge of the Waist.

To support the device, I prefer to secure an eyebolt, S, inthe ceiling or some other conf venient support, and connect the eyes d Mon the upper end of the cylinder) thereto lby means of the cords or chains T. To raise or 9o lower the device to suit the different sizes of childrensupported therein, the cords T may be lengthened or shortened.

When the child is properly'secured in the supporting-garment, it cannot fall or .become 95 loose in any way, and it will` be so held that its feet will just rest lightly on the floor.

When the child makes an effort to jump, the spring aids it and lifts the child slightly from the floor.

The swiveled frame allows the child to turn entirely around at will.

Having thus described my invention, I claim^ (These flaps are shown laid open in the second Ioo 1. In a babyj u mper, the combination, with the vertically-resilient supportingrod F, having a frame, H, swiveled on its lower end, of the supporting-garment adapted to be fastened around the infant and comprising the waist M, to be buttoned around the body, the pants depending froni the waist and having the front iiap, L', and the side Haps, L2, adapted to be buttoned together in front of the infant, and the skirt N, attached to the waist at the top of the pants and hanging around the said pants, the upper edge of the waist being attached to the lower ends of cords R, which are attached to the said frame H, substantially as and for the purpose hereinbefore specified.

2. In a baby-jumper, the combination ofthe cylinder A, suitably supported and having an aperture, f, in its lower end, the spring coiled within the cylinder, the rod F, mounted in the aperture f, and having a plunger, G, on its "upper end, lting in the cylinder and bearing on the upper end of the spring, and the support K, attached to the lower end of the rod F, substantially as and for the purpose specitied.

3. In a baby-jumper, the combination of the v the central opening, f, .the vertical flange c,

and the lateral flange c, which is provided with perforations to align with the perforations in the flange b', the rods D D, passing through the aligned perforations, and having the rings d d on the upper ends above the cap B, the

spring E in the cylinder, the supporting-rod and the eyes d d on the upper end of the cyl inder, substantially as specified.

4. In a baby-jumper, the combination of the cylinder A, the cap B, having the depending liange b to embrace the end of the cylinder and the lateral perforated flange b', the cap C, having the vertical flange c, to embrace the lower end of the cylinder, and the lateral perforated flange c', the bolts D D,passing.through aligned perforations in the said perforated anges, the spring E within the cylinder, and the supporting-rod F, connected to the spring, and having the support K attached to the lower end to contain the child, substantially as specified.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto affixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.

MARY PERGILLER JONES.
