Syllabus

Letters patent No. 241,321, granted May 10, 1881, to Charles A. Dunks and James B. Ryan, for improvements in swing woven-wire bed-bottoms, are invalid for want of patentability, all that was done being to suspend a fabric well known as a bed-bottom in substantially the same manner that other fabrics used for that purpose had been suspended.

The case is stated in the opinion.
