UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

MATHEW DELANY, OF VIRGINIA CITY, NEVADA.

IMPROVEMENT IN `BILLJARDTABLE CUSHIONS..

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 97,057, dated November 23, 1869.

To all 'whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, MATHEW DELANY, of Virginia City, in the county of Storey and Stateof Nevada, have invented a new and use ful Improvement in Billiard-Table Cushions; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof, which will enable others skilled inthe art to make and `use the same, reference being had to theaccompanying drawing forming part of this specification.

-This invention relates to improvements in billiard-table cushions; and consists in the' combination, with the India-rubber cushions,- of wires or cords, embedded in 'the edges',1un' nin g from endto end thereof, and strained, by straining-keys or other devices, in a way to impart a superior springing quality to the said cushions. y

AFigure l represents a transverse section of a cushion. and side rail of a` billiard-table with my improvement applied to it, and Fig. 2 represents a plan view of the same..

` are strained. These Wires are embedded in the rubber cushions, near the edges, wherein the balls strike, and they are placed under suitable tension by the straining-keys, to cause thecushions to react much quicker and with greater elasticity than the nature of the India rubber is capable of, thereby producing very much superior cushions. In this example the. straining-keys are represented as being' ar ranged in the top rails, at the ends of the cushions; but they may be otherwise arranged 5I for instance, they may be inserted from the bottom ot' the ruil, and openings may be made through the side ot' the rail leading to the keys, for the wires to pass through. Other arrangements of the said keys may also'be made. In

the case of tables without pockets at the. corners, the said wires may continue beyond the ends ofthe cushions in straight lines, and the bridges D may be dispensed with.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as newand desire to secure by Letters Pat ent- 1. The combination, with the cushion A, of wires o r cords B, and straining-keys or other straining devices arranged to hold the wires under tension, substantially as specified.

2. The combina-tion, with thc cushion, wires, or cords, and straining-devices, ofthe bridges D, substantiallyv as specified.

The above specifica-tion of my invention signed by me this day of ,1869.
