\A/ITNESEEE UNITED STATES PATENT FFICE.

- WILLIAM Y. ALLEN, OF BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS.

VIBRATING TARGET.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 518,930, dated April 24, 1894.

Application filed March 16, 1893. Serial No. 466,036. (No model.)

T0 at whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, WILLIAM Y. ALLEN,'a citizen of the United States, residing at Boston, in the county of Suffolk and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, have invented a Vibrating Target, of which the following is a full specification.

The object of my invention is to furnish a device which may be used in games in connection with a lasso. It may be also used for any other purpose where a target is desired.

My invention consists of a stake, which may be driven into the ground, having a flexible or vibratile upper end to which may beattached any object suitable for a target.

Referring to the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is an elevation of my vibrating target. Fig. 2 is an elevation of the flexible stake. Fig. 3 shows a modified form of my vibrating target. Fig. 4 is a plan of mytarget shown in Fig. 3.

In the drawings A is the stake which is driven into the ground. The upper end B of the stake is of reduced diameter and is inclosed by the flexible spiral spring C. This spring 0 projects for some distance above the end B, and receives in its upper end the pin d, on the under side of the block I). By this means a flexible stake is obtained, and to its upper end D may be attached by means of the pin c any desired form of end piece, such as the animals head E shown in Fig. 1, or the form E, Fig. 3, the object being to provide a movable object, on which a lasso may be thrown.

In the modified form of my target, shown in Fig. 3, the block D is dispensed with, and the end piece E is provided, on its under side, with a neck G, whose lower end g is set directly into the top of the spring 0.

Firmly secured to the neck G are the projecting arms F F. These arms are preferably made of Wire in the shape shown in Fig. fl, and serve as shoulders to prevent the noose of the lasso from slipping down too far, or becoming entangled in the spring 0.

I claim 1. A vibrating target consisting of a'stake provided with a spring and detachable end .piece, substantially as described.

2. A vibrating target consisting of the stake A, the spring 0, the block D, and end piece E, substantially as described.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand.

. WILLIAM Y. ALLEN.
