An improvement in bells for horses has been made by JasonBarton, of Middle Haddam, Cb., who has taken measures to secure a patent for the same. The invention relates to a peculiar manner of suspending the tongues within the bells, whereby the positions of the tongues may be varied according to the inclination of the sides of the pad to which the bells are attached. The positions of the sides of the pad vary according to the transverse form of the body of the animal, and by this improvement the tongues of the bells may be adjusted so as to act upon the bells, whatever position the pad or belt and bells may have when attached to the animal.
