CAMPAIGN HORN AND RATTLER.

To all whom it may con/cern:

Beit known that I, CHARLES T. CHILDERs,a citizen of the United States, residing at Galesburg, in the county of Knox and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Campaign Horns and Rattlers, of which the following'is a specification.

This invention relates to an improvement in sounding toys, and has special reference `to a combined horn and rattler possessing spe'-4 cial utility for campaign and analogous demoust-rations, while at the same time subserving a generally useful function as a toy.

To this end the invention contemplates a simple, inexpensive, and practical device of the character specified `of a collapsible nature, whereby the same will occupy when collapsed a very small compass, so that it can be conveniently handled in small packages and can be handily carried about in a pocket for use when desired. At the Sametime the invention has in view a toy embodying means for providing a complete sounding horn or trumpet and also a complete rattler made up of members of the flaring sound-tube of the horn. J Y

With these and many other objects in view, which will more readily appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel construction, combination, and arrangement of parts', which `will be hereinafter more fullyT described, illus? trated, and claimed.

The essential features of the invention involved in the construction providing for the convertibility of the device from a horn to a rattler,and vice versa, are necessarily susceptible to modication in structure withoutdeparting from the scope of the invention; but a preferred embodiment thereof is shown in the accompanying drawings, in Which- Figure l is a sectional view of a combination horn and rattler with the parts assembled in the positions they occupy when providing a complete horn used in the manner of an ordinary toy tin horn. Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the same device, showing the telescopic sound-tube collapsed, with the sections thereof sustained upon the supportingbase in position to provide rattling elements Patent No. 728,083, daten May 12, 1903.

which may be vibrated against each other to produce a rattling sound. Fig. 3 is a top plan view of the rattler shown in Fig. 2.

Lilie reference-numerals designate corre# served, so that when used. simply as a hor-n for campaigning or otherV purposes the device appears as the common type of h orn. The construction, however, is of such a nature that the device can be readily converted into a rattler, as may be plainly seen from the drawings, to which particular reference will be made. l

To provide a medium for supporting the sections or members constituting the horn, as well as the rattling elements, the invention involves the employment of la supportingbase, (designated by the numeral 1,) which is preferably in the form of a concave-convex disk provided'at one side thereof with an interiorly-tbreaded oset socket 2, in which is detachably threaded the 'eXteriorly-threaded joint-neck 3 of a tapered tubular mouthpiece 4. This mouthpiece 4 may be' the ordinary simple type of mouthpiece, such as cornmonly employed in connection with the ordi nary tin horn, and has arranged therein any approved and simple form of sounding whistle or reed whereby the sound may be produced and reflected through the main tube of the device when employed solely as a horn. When the device is converted into a rattler and is held in an vupright position, theinouthpiece 4 constitutes a hand-grip or handle by means of which the rattle or rattler may be operated. At the' side of the supportingpiece opposite the detachablecombined mouthpiece and handle 4 the said supportingbase is designed to carry a collapsible telescopic sound-tube 6. This collapsible or telescopic sound-tube Gis made'up of a series of truste-conical tube-sections 7 of successively increasing size, iitting one within the other and having a telescopic connection with each other, so that when-drawn ont to their eXtreme limit the same provide a complete extended flared tube or horn-body through which the sound is carried from the Whistle or reed of the mouthpiece when the device is employed as a horn. The innermost telescopic tube-section 7 (designated by the numeral 7a) is rigidly fitted in a central opening ofthe supporting-base 1, and the outermost section (designated by the numeral 7b) is in the form of the bell usually provided at the outer end of a horn or trumpet tube.

When it is desired to convert the device into a rattler, the telescopic sections 7 are collapsed upon the base l, so that When the device is turned in an upright position all of the said sections loosely and disconnectedly rest upon the base l, so that by grasping the combined handle and mouthpiece element 4t in the hand and shaking or vibrating the same the tube-sections 7 become rattling elements and provide a rattling noise as they are jingled or vibrated against each other.

From the foregoing it is thought that the construction, use, and many advantages of theherein-described horn and rattler Will be readily apparent without further description, and it will also be understood that changes in the form, proportion, and minor details of construction may be resorted to Without departing from the spirit of the invention or sacriiicing any of the advantages thereof.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed, and desired to be secured by Letters Patent, is

1. A sounding toy of the class described having a body convertible from a horn into a rattler, and vice versa.

2. A toy of the class described comprising a body having members forming sections of a horn-tube and also forming elements of a rattler.

3. A toy of the class described comprising a body having a collapsible member forming a horn-tube and also elements of a rattler.

4. A combined horn and rattler comprising a supporting-base carrying a collapsible sound-tube, and a 'combined handle and mouthpiece.

5. Acombined horn and rattler comprising a supporting-base carrying at one side thereof a collapsible telescopic flaring sound-tube Whose sections constitute rattling elements adapted to be loosely sustained upon the base, and a sounding-mouthpiece also carried by the supporting-base and constituting a handle for the toy when employed as a rattler.

In testimony whereof I aiiix my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
