TOOTH-BRUSH.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented March 17, 1008.

Appication filed August 30, 1907. Serial No. 390,774.

To all whom 'it may concern:

Be it known that I, FREDERICK F. SHUMER, a citizen of the United States, residing at Norwalk, in the county of Huron and State of Ohio, have invented new and useful Imrovements in Tooth-Brushes, of which the ollowing is a specification.

This invention relates to tooth brushes, and it has for its object to provide `a sim le, convenient and efficient device of this c ass in which the handle of the brush shall constitute a reservoir for the liquid, powder, paste or other material, detergent or other- Wise, which is utilized for the purpose of cleansing the teeth; further objectsof the invention being to simplify and improve the',

construction and operation of this class of devices.

With these and other ends in view which will readily appear as the nature of the invention is better understood, the same con-y sists in the improved construction and novel arrangement and combination of parts which will be hereinafter fully described and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings has been illustrated a simple and preferred form of the invention; it being, however, understood that no limitation is necessarily made to the precise structural details therein exhibited,

ut that changes, alterations and modiiications Within the scope of the invention may be resorted to when desired.

In the drawing, Figure' 1 is a side elevationl of a tooth brush constructed in accordance with the invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional View of the same:

Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of a l portion of the brush showing the discharge tube in position fordischarging a portion of the material contained in the reservoir within the handle. Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view of the handle taken on the plane indicated by the line 4-4 in Fig. 2.

Corresponding parts in the several figures are denoted by like characters of reference.

The improved tooth brush comprises 'the head section A having the shank B, and the tubular handle section C, which constitutes a reservoir for the cleansing material, and which is detachably connected with the shank of the head section as will be presently more fully explained.

The head section A and the shank B include an integral back piece 1 at one end of which the bristles 2 are mounted and secured pug 7. ug or` flange 14 a in any suitable well known manner. The opposite end of the back iece 1 constitutes a sleeve 3, the extremity o which is externally threaded, at 4, and is screwed into one end of a tube 5, made of metal or other suitable material and which constitutes the body of the handle section C; said tube 5 also constitutes a receptacle for cleansing material which mayconsist of li uid, powder or paste of any description. T e outer end of the tube 5 constitutes the handle section, whereby ismeant the end opposite to that into which the sleeve 4 is inserted, and is provided With a screw threaded cap 6 consti tuting a closure.

The end of the sleeve 4 which is connected with the tubular handle section is provided with a plug 7 having a central aperture 8 wherein is tted a slidable dischar e tube 9 having at its outer end a spherica bulb or enlargement 10 wherein is fitted a ball 11 formed at the inner end of the extension tube 12 which is thus connected with the discharge tube 9 in such a manner as to be capable of universal movement with relation thereto.

The discharge tube 9 together 'with the extension tube 12 is forced away from the plu 7 by the action of a spring 13 which is coile u on the tube 9 between' the bulb 10 and the The back iece 1 is provided with a d)jacent to the bristles 2,

said lug or flange being provided with a recess wherein is seated a washer 15 adapted to be engaged by the outer extremity of the extension l2 of the discharge tube. It will be observed that the extension tube 12 is exposed in such a manner as to be readily grasped by the fingers of the operator, who, by seizing said tube' may press the latter and the discharge tube 9 against the tension of the spring 13 until the outer or free end of the extension tube 12 may be disengaged from the washer 15 and lowered to the sition shown in Fig. 3 of the drawings, w en, by properly shalingand manipulatin the brush, a portion of t e contents of t e tubular handle may be readily discharged through the tubes 9 and 12 and onto the bristles ofy the brush. When a sufficient uantity of the cleansing material has been ischarged, the discharge tube 9 and its extension member 12 may readil be restored to the position shown in Fig. 2 o the drawings, with the dischar e end "of the extension member engaging t e washer 15, which latter may thus be.

regarded as constituting a closure for the receptacle containing the cleansing material. The discharge tube will be retained in closed position by the pressure of the spring 13, as will be readily understood.

When 'the cleansing material contained in the tubular section is in liquid or in A owder form, it may be readily shaken out t ough the discharge tube and -through the extension member of the latter; but when the said cleansing material is in the form of a aste, it will be found desirable to use specia means for discharging the same, said special means being constructed as ollowsz-,A longitudinally movable follower 2() is arranged in the tubular handle section, 5, said follower being provided with laterally extending lugs 21 engaging longitudinal grooves 22 in the tubular member 5, to revent the follower from turning within t e latter. An operating screw 23 is swiveled, or sup orted for rotation in the ca 6, said screw eing pr ovided with a hand e 24 by means of which it may be conveniently rotated for the purpose of effecting adjustment of the follower 20, which latter has a longitudinally threaded aperture 25 engaging the screw 23. The

latter is provided with a terminal disk or button 26 to revent disengagement of the follower; and it also has an annular ilange or collar 27 abutting u on the inside of the cap 6 for the purpose o retaining the adjusting screw in posit1on relative to said cap.

It will be readily seen that when the follower 20 is in position closely adjacent to the ca 6, the tubular handle may be filled with a etergent paste, by separating said handle fromthe shank B with which, as hereinbefore stated, it has threaded connection. After `re-assembling the parts, the contents of the tubular handle section may be discharged through the discharge tube 9 of the extension tube 12 by manipulating the screw to operate the follower 20, as will be readilyunderstood.

From the foregoing description taken in connectionwith the drawings hereto annexed, the operation and advantages of this invention will be readily understood, lt is simlple in construction, inexpensive and thoroug ly efcient for the purposes for which it is provided; being especially useful for travelers and tourists in enabling a supply of cleansing material to be conveniently carried in the brush handle, and discharged from the latter as it is needed for use.

Having thus fully described the invention, what is claimed as new is l c 1. A brush having a tubular handle member constituting a receptacle, a tubular shank detachably connected therewith, a tubular discharge member movable in the tubular shank and having an extension connected thereto by a ball and socket joint, and a stationary closure for the free end of the exten` sion oi the tubular discharge member.

2. A brush having a tubular handle member constituting a receptacle, a tubular shank de tachably connected therewith, and having an apertured plug, a s ring actuated discharge tube longitudinally movable in the tubular shank, a tubular extension member connected with the dischar e tube for universal movement with relation thereto, and a stationary brush.

3. A brush having a tubular handle .mem-y ber constituting a receptacle, a tubular shank connected detachably therewith, and a tubulars ring actuated-discharge member seated for ongitudinal movement in the tubular shank, said discharge member includin a discharge tube and an extension mem' er connected therewith for universal movement and a closure for the discharge member consisting of a liange stationary on the shank and an elastic washer supported upon said flange.

4. A brush having a tubular handle member constituting a receptacle, a tubular shank detachably'connected therewith, and having an apertured plug, a spring actuated tubular discharge member longitudinally slidable in the tubular shank, a follower movable longitudinally in the tubular handle member, a threaded cap constituting a closure for the latter, and an operating screw supported for rotation in the cap and having threaded engagement with the follower.

In testimony whereof I afIiX my signature in presence of two witnesses.

FREDERICK F. SHUMIER.
