With the above and other objects in view,- the
invention consists in general of certain novel
details of construction and combinations of parts
hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the
accompanying drawing and particularly claimed.
In the accompanying drawing like characters

views, andz-
Figure l is a front elevation of the invention.
Figure 2 is a section on the line 2_2 of Fig. 1.
Figure 3 is a section on the line 3-3 of Fig. 2.
In the embodiment of the invention as shown
;,-, in the present drawing there is provided a ver
tically elongated casing made of metal or other
suitable material, having va front wall II), rear
wall I2 and side walls I I. In the front Wall I0
there is a delivery opening I3 of general in
4u verted V-shape, this opening having a straight
bottom edge I4 extending between the side Walls
II from one wall to the other. Extending rear
wardly from the front Wall level with the edge
I4 is a tank top I5 which terminates in spaced
.l5 relation tothe rear wall l2. The rear part of this
tank top I5`is downwardly arched to form a
transverse trough I6 extending from side wall to
side wall. From the rear edge of the trough I6
a partition Il extends upwardly so that it is
pad rests in the trough I6.
'I'he metal top I8 is a suilicient barometric seal
when the cover I8 is in place. The edge portions 20
of the upstanding water leg extend up a suñicient
distance so that when the c_over I8 is placed in
position it actually contacts the entire perimeter
-of the water leg opening. If desired, an aux
iliary sealing means, such as a water-proofed
plug, may be inserted in the upper end of the
upstanding water leg after the tank has been
. In use, the casing is filled with padi or pledgets
and the tank ñlled with water, antiseptic solu
tion or other suitable liquid, the top I8 being
immediately closed. A certain amount of the
liquid will run into the trough and when it rises
above-the opening 20 it will stop ñowing. 'I'he 3
absorbent material of the bottom pad will rest,
at its projecting edge, in the liquid in the trough
and the liquid will be absorbed through the Whole
mass 'of absorbent material in this' bottom pad
by capillary attraction. The bottom pad may 40
now be drawn out through the opening I3 Where
upon the pile of pa‘ds will drop and the next pad
will be moistened.
When the level of the fluid falls below the
opening 20 a bubble of air enters the tank and 45
a little additionatñuid flows out into the trough
so that the latter is always kept ñlled to\ the
proper height to effectual y wet the bottom pad.
It is to be noted that t ese pads afford means

top I8 is removably ñtted on the casing to her
metically closethe top of the tank leg when in

There has thus been provided a simple and`
eilicient device of the kind described and for the
purpose specified.
