Description: Patent for "the combination, in a cotton-sprinkler, having a fluid-vessel, of flexible ejecting hose, having flaring nozzle sprinklers, with hooks or fastening devices for holding the nozzles in elevated positions upon the vessels, whereby the driver has perfect control both over the flow and direction of the fluid, and is thereby enabled to inject the fluid upon the two rows of plants, without regard to their height or the uncertain movement of the horse between the rows, and to stop the flow by elevating and hooking the ejecting-hose to the upper corners of the vessel, thus rendering the device much more effective in directing the fluid than could possibly be effected by fixed distributing perforated cocks, and preventing unnecessary waste of the fluid." (Lines 13-30) Includes instructions and illustrations.
