FENCE-POST,

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 399,021, dated March 5, 1889. Application led December 4, 1888. Serial No. 292,656. (No model.)

To al?, whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, THOMAS BAILEY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Jackson, in the county of Jackson and State of Michigan, have invented a new and useful Improvement in FencePosts, of which the following is a speciication. v

The invention relates to improvements in fence-posts; and it consists in a certain novel construction and combination of devices, fully described hereinafter in connection with the accompanying' drawings, and speciiically pointed out in the claims.

In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of aportion of a fence constructed with posts embodying my improvements. Fig. 2 is a detail view of one of the improved posts. Fig. 3 is a side view, part-ly in section, of the saine, showing its lower end set in thc ground.

Referring by letter to the drawings, A designates the improved post, in one side of which is formed a series of rectangular notches, B B, in which are tted the ends of the fence rails orboards C C, which are secured in place by the transverse bolts D D, extending through perforations d d in the post and registering perforations c c in the said rails or boards.

Downwardly and inwardly inclined transverse grooves E E are formed in the post at the lower inner angles of the notches B B, the

i g g inclining downwardly and inwardly from said grooves connnunicating with the notches, and F F represent wires extendinglongitudinall5v along the fence and fitting in the grooves E. These wires are iitted in the grooves before the rails or boards are arranged in the notches, and after the rails or boards are secured in place the wires cannot be detached, as the former close the outer or open sides of the grooves.

The lower end of the post is tapered, as shown at G, and a lateral shoulder, H, is formed at the upper end of the said tapered portion to bear on the surface of the ground.

The lower tapered ond of the post is driven into the ground until thc shoulder bears thereon, and thc shoulder forms aI brace to prevent the upper end of the post from swaying-laterally.

The advantage of the wire when used in combination with the rails or boards is that it prevents stock from pushing the rails or boards off and also strengthens the fence longitudin ally. The wires are preferably placed close to the lower edges of the rails, whereby when the stock attempt to push the rails off they will also press against the wires and be thereby prevented from accomplishing their purpose.

The wires may be used independently of the rails, in which case it is preferred to bolt blocks in the notches of the posts to hold the wires in their grooves.

Having thus described the invention, I claim* l. The fence-post providedY with transverse notches B B, and grooves E E at the lower inner angles of the said notches, in combination with the wires fitting in the said grooves, and the rails or boards fitting in the notches and held in place by bolts passing through the posts, substantially as specilied.

2. A fence-post provided in one side with shallow rail-notches B B, and having grooves the inner lower angles of the said notches', substantially as specified.

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

hi rrnonfis BAILEY.
