The UK grant Patent #GB2289222 on 1995-11-15 to inventor, Leakey Colin Louis Avern for "A device for collecting flatus gas from a human or animal subject, the device comprising a gas-tight collecting tube for insertion into the rectum of the subject and retaining means comprising a pair of O rings locatable in the sub-ject's inter-sphincter groove…" [The Patent Office]

        I'll tell you a story that is sure to please,
        Of a great farting contest at Burton-on-Tease,
        Where all the best farters paraded the field,
        To compete in a contest for various shields.

                "The Farting Contest" DigTrad filename[ FARTCNT

So, Abby, did your source material indicate the intended use of said flatus?
Fuel?
Enquiring minds want to know. [Originated as a slogan used in TV ads in the 1980s by the National Enquirer.]

There is some nonsense about medical research and, especially, to seek info on IBS at Clicky.

The patent was not, as you might suspect, about 1905 but as late as 1999 and has already lapsed for failure to pay patent fees.

Thus, in the current time window until it may be reinstated, you, Joe, are free to build and use the device, yourself.

I am sure that if properly attach at Mudcat, you will collect enough flatus to solve the entire energy requirements of, say, all of Africa.

If effectively used at any national political convention, you could solve the needs for the rest of the world.

You will be a Hero!

Oddly enough, there are people in the world whose job it is to work out the amount of flatulent emissions from various animals.... otherwise how would we know just how much cat farts and sheep puffs contribute to global warming?
