To mil/m2, in may concern):

lie in known Linn; l, SEZLLMAN AUGUSTUS MOULTON, a. citizen of the United States, residing at ()nmphelhin the county of Santa, Clara Stale of California, have invented a new and useful Device for Preventing Loud Snoring, oi" whieh LllQ following is a specifica- Lion.

'ihisi'ni'encion relates loan antisnoring device, and has for its object to provide a simple, inexpensive, and eiiicienl; device 0i this character by means of which harsh misnl sounds, common y'celled snoring and due to the passage of air through the mouth when breathing, is ell'ectiwly prevenLed;

it, is a Well-known fact that the habit; of

breathing through the mouth, perbicnlerly when sleeping, is more or lees injurious from a hygenic standpoint, inasmuch as it causes the membrane of ihe mouth to become dry and parched and prevenls the proper purificabion of the air and cleansing of Lhe nasal passages, as is iho case Whenthe air is adniitteri in the natural way ihrongh the possages of the nosgnnnd, moreover, theincoming current of air causes a vibration of the nvulzi and soft palate, giving rise to a sound more or less harsh, causing considerable annoyance (30 persons Wiihin hearing distance.

One oi. the principal ohjectsofthe invention is to overcome these objections and to provide means for preventing lhe ingress of air through the mouth when breathing and to regulate its egress, so as to cause the ai r to be admitted to the lungs and expelled therefrom in the natural manner through nasal pee.

sages. v

The invention consists in a flexible plate or mouthpiece adapted to be held between the lips and in mntaci; with the teeth and gums when sleeping, said place being provided with e. check-valve adapted to regulate the amount of air ml in'iilbed to or expelled from the lungs l lll9llgl tihemgnth.

The invention further consists in the construction nndnovol combination of parts hereinafter fnlLy rleecribetl, illustrated in the accompanying drawings, and pointedoub in the claims hereto appended, it heing undereloocl that various changes in form, proportion, and minor details of construction may beresortbrl to without deperzing from the some removed.

spirit; or sacrificing any of the admntagos of this invention,

In the aocoin panying (lrnwings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of an ennisnoring device con structed in accordance with my invention, showing the manner in which the device is applieil. Fig. 2 is a sifie elevation of the Fig. 3 is a vertical seciiional View of Fim 2.

Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the forms of drawings.

1 (lesignetes'e plate or mouthpiece formed of rubber, canvas, cloth, or other flexible and preferably impervious material, being preferably elliptical in shape, as shown, to conform to the shape of the month and adapted. to he placed between the lips and held in contaer with iihe teelh, as clearly shown in Fi 1 of the drawings. The plate is provided with a centrally-disposed flap-valve 2, which normally closes an opening 3 formed therein, said valve being adapted to prevent he ingreen of air'to iglie lungs through the mouth when inhaling and so permit a, relatively small quantity thereof to he expelleni through the opening 3 in the act of exhaling. The place being elliptical in shape end formed of flexible material will readily conform to the shape of the mouth, as before stated, while byhaving thevelve open outwardly the air will be prevented from entering the mouth through the orifice 3,-hei'ng compelled to enterfihe lungs through the passages of the nose in the natnrel manner, thereby nrevenbiug vibralion of ihe -"nvula and the consequent, harsh raspingsonnd called snoring. When the nasal passages are partly obstructed from various cauees-eueh as cemr'rh, inflammanion, and. the like-renewing it, diificulrto admit, air through the nose, the plate may h reversed and placed in the month with the valve opening inwardly, ihereby admiiisi'ng a snliicienb quantity of air to supply She lungs,

but in volnme insufficient no cause the neoeseer'y vibretiim ineident to snoring, the air being forcibly expelled through the nose at eech expiration.

Frornfhe foregoing deem-lotion. i; will be eeenphei I have provided an exceedingly simple and inexpensive device which may be readily placed in the mouth upon retiring for the night and which will effectively prevent ble mouthpiece formed snoring and at the same Lime permit the respiratory organs to perform their functions in a. natural manner.

Having thus described the invention, when I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Pateat, is

1. An antisnoring device coiz'nprising a reversible mouthpiece having a valved opening.

2. An antisnoring device comprisinga flexible mouthpiece having a valved opening.

3. Ananiisnoringdeviceconiprisingaflexiof imperforaae'material having a valved opening.

4. An antisnoring device comprisir'iga flexiblenlouth piece formed of imperforate material and provided with a central opening, and

e flap-valve adapted to close said opening.

5. An anbisnoring device comprising a. reversible mouthpiece formed of rubber and provided with a centrally-disposed valved opening.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as. my own I have hereto afifiixed my signature-in WILLIAM AQBf W Q I S. G. BENSON:
