although the preferred embodiment of the invention is as illustrated and described, itis to be understood that changes in the details of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to which will fall Within the scope of the invention as claimed.
. What is claimed is;
1. A tonsillectome comprising a barrel, afton sil receiving cup'on one end of the barrel and communicating with said barrel, a piston opera able in the barrel for creating a suction in, the cup for drawingthe tonsil'thereinto, a snare in the cup for severingthe tonsil, a rodconnected to the snare and extending'slidably intofthe piston, means for connecting the rodto the pistonfor actuation thereby after independent initial movement of said piston, and means for actuating the piston.
I 2. A tonsillectome comprising a barrel, a tonsil receiving cup mountedon the barrel and communicating therewith, a piston operable in the barrel for creating a suction in the cup and drawing the tonsil thereinto, a snare in the cup for severing the tonsil, means connecting the snare to the piston for actuation thereby, and means tor actuating the piston. t
3. A tonsillectome comprising a barrel, acannula mounted longitudinally on oneend of the barrel, a tonsil receiving cup on the free end of the cannula, saidcup communicating with the barrel, a piston operable in the barrel for creating a suction in the cup for drawing a tonsil thereinto, a snare mounted in the cup for severing the tonsil, a rod ,slida'bly mounted'in the cannula and extending slidably into the piston, means for piston, and means for releasably locking'the piston against movement in one direction; I
4. A tonsillectome comprising an elongated barrel, a cannula mounted on one end of the barrel, a tonsil receiving cup on the free end of the cannula, said cup communicating with the barrel, a piston operable in the barrel for creating a' suction inv the cup for drawing the tonsil thereinto, a snare in the cup for severing thetonsil, a
rod slidably mounted in the cannula and connected to .the snare, said rod extending slidably.
intof the piston, ,coacting means on the rod and on the piston for connecting the rod to said piston for actuation thereby after independent initial movement of the piston, the barrel having diametrically opposite slots therein, a finger- .piece slidable in the slots and secured to the piston, means for securing the piston in adjusted.

erable in the barrel for engaging a tonsil in the cup, means for manually actuating the firstnamed means, means for severing the tonsil, and
means operatively connecting the third-named means to the first-named means for actuation thereby. I
7. A tonsillectome comprising a cup for the reception of 1 a tonsil, suction means connected With-the cup for drawing the tonsil thereinto, means for severing the tonsil, and means connecting the severing means to the suction means for actuation thereby. KB. A tonsillectome comprising a cup for the reception of a tonsil, suction means connected with the cup for drawing the tonsil thereinto, means for severing. the tonsil, and means connecting the severing means to the suction means for actuation thereby after initial independent movement of said suction means. 1 I
' 9. A tonsillectome comprising a barrel, a tonsil receiving cup connected to the barrel, means operable in the barrel for engaging a tonsil in: the
cup, means for actuating the first-named means,
means. for severing the tonsil, and means operatively connecting the tonsil severing means to the first-namedmeans for' actuation thereby RODERICK F. BROWN.
