    Illustrated in edition 5 of Hagemeier under 9-D, page 234, but not given a number or any patent information. Perhap a variation of 8-D Walsh-Dutot. Found in Aledo, Texas by Danny Wright. An absolutely fantastic piece of history.

      Don't know how accurate this info is, but.....

      Joseph Glidden attended a Dekalb, Illinois county fair where he observed a demonstration of a wooden rail with sharp nails protruding along its sides, hanging inside a smooth wire fence. The fence rail, patented earlier that year on May 13, by Henry M. Rose was designed to be attached to an existing fence to "prick" an animal when it came into contact with the rail and keep livestock from breaking through.
