hattan and State ofN ew York, have invented certain lnew and useful Improvements in Goggles, of which'the following is a full, clear, an exact description. l My invention relates to gog ing-glasses for the use of chau mobilists generally, and has for its principal object the provision of a light protectin 'support for thev usual glasses, which. sha l ainst dust, and w ch shallbe perfectly vent' ated.
A further object of vise a simple, cheap, construction for ca ing out the foregoin purposes, which mayrbe readily stamped an ormed of sheet metal throughout and which the invention is to de- 1n use.
With these and other objects in view my invention consists in the construction, comination, location, and arrangement of' arts, all as will be more fully hereinafter set orth, as shown in the accompanying drawin s,and finally particularly pointed out in t e' ap- In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of a pair of goggles embodying the principle of my invention. Fi 2 is a sectional view of one of the indivi ual members or glasses, and Fi 3 is a'perspective view showing the parts o one of the members or glasses in approximately the position they occupy W en assembled.
In order to thoroughly protect the eyes against dust particles when traveling at high speed in a motor-vehicle, it is not suliicient in at the sides, as well as at the. front. Ven the eye is thus closely covered up, however, a circulation of air is prevented and an unhealthful atmos here is created which is harmful. of circulation is also 1n that it causes moisture casing to condense upon the surface of the glass, so that the operator is unable to lookfthrough them. i
carrying out my invention I overcome Specicaton of Letters Patent. Application filed December 26, 1905, 'Serial No. 293,312.

all of the above defects andlin a very simple,-
convenient, and eiicient way.
eferring now to the drawings and to the s wherever they rred form comprises a plate 2,.curved to generally accord with the surface of the nose and face around the eye, and having a circumferential rim or flan flan e 3 is conveniently perforated with smaIl holes 4 all around its periphery, which serve as a means forjattaching the usual mask, vas will be later described.v 'indicates openings for the attachment of the cord .or band 6, which serves to secure the goggles in place. 7 denotes additional holes, which are engaged le es 8, connected by a link 9 or other suitab e securing or fastening means. This connection is liexible in order to permit theindividual glasses to adjust themselves to the sh into. a compact compass when not muse.
In connection with vide a fra'me 10, which serves as a holder for. the usual glass' or window. ...In construction of my device I make the window in the form of a curved glass plate 11, and I conform the holder l0 to the shape'ofy the window, so as to make .t neat and attractive support therefor. While I prefer a lass window of curved form, as above descri I do not desire to be restricted thereto, since material-such as mica, gelatin, celluloid, &c.
could be used equally Welllin,lieu thereof. ,The frame or holder l0 is flanged'inward at 12,so as to form a/frame for additionally inclosing and protecting the Window.
At the base of the frame or holder 10 I provide a series of protecting earsl or lugs-13,
which extend a short distance from the base of the holder and terminate in sq'uare shoulders 14, with small fingers 15 extending thereall term the supand which its prege 3.. This rim or ape 'of the wearers j face and also to permit their being folded up the base-plate I prothe practical I from. The baseplate 1 is apertured at l points 16 around its face, which are in a position to receive the fingers `l5 above mentioned. .The fingers are afterward bent or peened or hammered down upon the interior of the base-plate 1, so as to hold the frame 10 firmly thereagainst. In this relation the lugs 13 rest with'their shoulders 14 against IIO the face ot the base-plate, so that annular passages 17 are lett aroundthe circumference of the goggles, through which air may enter.
The shove would forni a complete` and fairly eliicient goggle; but l provide an additional member, which plays an important part end which l regard as a Valuable feature of rey invention. As shown in Fig. 3, this comprises a rim i8, `which may he termed integral `with the oase-plate 2 and projecting annularly therelroin. 7l`he 'form of the rim 18 corresponds 'generally to that ot the frame 10, out is oi a smaller size, so that/tbe two nesttogether into the relation shown in Fig. 2, leaving an annular space '19 het-Ween them for thecieulation of air. The upper edge of the rim 1S rests against the window l'l and forms a` support therefor. 2() indicatesl notches around the upper edge of the riin 18, which permit a circulation of air therethrough from the annular space 19.
ln use the goggles are adjusted upon the face of the wearer either by the hand 6 or by a cloth mask, which may he sewed to the goggles oy means ot the holes or perforations 4. The passes into the annular recesses 17 through thc spaces l@ and notches 20, iinally issuing reely into the interior of the goggles in sheets or series of jets extendingl around their entire edges. This supply of air is therefore admitted in such a Way as not to strike directly against the eye, but is stopped hy the inner wall and admitted in such a Way to be directed away from the face. The air admitted in this way further serves to cool the inner surface of the Window and prevent condensation ot moisture thereon. At the seine ltime the disposition of the Various Ventilating-openings is suoli that the ingress oi dust particles .is greatly lessened when the goggles are in use.
senses l. A goggle comprising a base-plate having an interior rim with notches or spaced open ings around its edge, and a Window trarne or holder arranged to nest or telescope over said rim so as to leave en annular space therebetween.
2. A goggle comprising a hase-plate having an interior rim projecting substantially perpendicular-ly therefrom, and a Windenr trarne or holder adapted to nest or telescope over saidrirn so as to leave en annular space there between.
3. A goggle comprising a base-plate havving an interior riin, and having apertures around its face, and a Window holder or frame having lugs with lingers for engaging said apertures and arranged to surround said rim.
4. A goggle comprising a beseplate hasL inf.; a peripheral Harige, and having an interior riin, and a Window holder or framesupported from said hase-plate, so es to leave continuous air-passages from the exterior air to points Within the casing adjacent to the Window.
5. A goggle comprising a base-plete har/2 ing an exterior perforated flange, and an interior rini7 and e window holder or frame supported from the base-plate, end adapted to surround said riin so as to leave continuous passages from the exterior air over the surface oi said rini to points on the surface of the Window.
In witness whereof l subscribe my signal ture in the presence of two Witnesses.
