Young's patented improvement consists in "securing the ends of the splints together by means of a tubular metallic rivet, and in forming the loop or bail of such fan of an elastic metallic wire bent into proper shape, in such manner that the ends thereof may be sprung into the tubes, thus securing the bail in position, and avoiding all necessity of apertures or eyes in the same for riveting it to the fan."
