It is believed that the construction as well as
the operation and features and advantages which
attend a structure of this type are somewhat self
evident, that is as a result of having considered
the description and drawings.
A careful consideration of the foregoing de
scription in conjunction with the invention as
illustrated in the drawings will enable the reader
to obtain a clear understanding and impression
of the alleged features of merit and novelty suiii
cient to clarify the construction of the invention
as hereinafter claimed.
