ANIMAL-CALL.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Feb. 27, 1906.

Application filed September 19, 1904;. Serial No. 224,959.

To @JZ whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, J osEF BRUNNER, a citi- Zen of the United States, residing at Pinegrove, Fergus county, and State of Montana, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Animal-Calls, of which the fol,- lowing is a specification.

My\invention relates to a new and useful improvement in animal-calls, and has for its object to provide a device which when blown into will imitate the sound of a certain animal and thereby attract other animals.

With these ends in view this invention consists in the details of construction and come bination of elements hereinafter set forth and then specifically designated by the claim.

In order that those skilled in the art to which this invention appertains may understand how to make and use the same, the construction and operationwill now be described in detail, referring to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which- Figure l is an outside elevation of the device Fig. 2, a longitudinal section through the same; Fig. 3, an elevation of the bill and tongue attached thereto; Fig. 4, a plan view of the bill with the tongue removed.

A represents the bill, which is pointed at the forward end and is hollowed out and open at the top. The rearward part of this bill is tubular and exteriorly threaded, as represented at A.

B is a vibratory tongue of exceedingly thin metal or other suitable material, which is adapted to lie over the open side of the bill A. This tongue B is secured to the bill near the tubular portion by any suitable means, here shown as winding silk around the same, as shown at B, and the natural tendency of the free end of the tongue B is to spring upward, as shown in Fig. 3.

O is a casing composed of two parts. The larger part O is threaded at one end and adapted to screw upon half of the threaded portion A of the bill. This part O of the 'casing incloses entirely the bill and has an opening D at its forward end. If the user blows through the opening D, the vibratory tongue B will be caused to vibrate and make a noise similar to the sound made by certain animals. Of course it will require some practice upon the part of the user before the sounds of the animals can be imitated properly. For the purpose of changing the sound of the vibrating tongue I provide a pin E, threaded through the casing O and may be forced down and limit the vibrations of the tongue B. E is a spring tending to normally force the pin E upward. By turning the pin E a certain tune can be played and sounds made to imitate certain animals. O2 is the other portion of the casing O, having an opening O3 through its rearward end, and this portion O2 screws upon the balance of the threaded portion A of the bill and adds to the appearance of the article.

Of course I do not wish to be limited to the exact construction here shown, as slight modifications could be made Without departing from the spirit of my invention.

Having thus fully described my invention, what I claim as new and useful is In a device of the character described, a trough-shape bill pointed at its forward end, the rearward end of said bill being formed tubular and exteriorly threaded, a vibrating tongue secured at its rearward end over the open side of the bill, the forward or free end of the tongue tending to spring upward, a casing composed of two parts, the outer end of each part of the casing being provided with an opening smaller than the tubular portion of the bill, the other end of each part of the casing being interiorly threaded, and each part adapted to be threaded upon the threaded portion of the bill from opposite ends of the tubular portion of the bill, a pin threaded through the casing above the vibrating tongue, said pin adapted to control the vibrations of the tongue by screwing the same inward or outward, and a spring tending to force the pin away from the tongue, as and for the purpose specified.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

JOSEF BRUN NER.
