i UNITED `Y STATES ATENT OFFICEo AUGUST SEITZ, HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 109,677, dated November 29, 1870.

To a/ZZ wiz/0m,v l212i nung concern,.-

Be it known that I, A. SEITZ, of Hoboken, in the county of Hudson and State of New `Jersey, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Confectionery, and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this speciication.

My invention relates to an article of confectionery adapted more particularly to the use of druggists. It is the custom of the latter to surround with an outer covering of pleasantlyflavored confectionery an inner drug or compound designed to affect beneficially the throat or stomach. They have hitherto found it eX- pensive to prepare this outer covering themselves, and yet cannot always have their contracts iilled by the confectioner at the time or in the manner desired. I propose, therefore, to prepare a caramel or other pleasantly-tasted bon-bon with an irregular concavity in the A center, for the reception and firm retention of the desired drug or compound. This is first crystallized and then sold as an article of manufacture to the druggist. The latter mixes the substance which contains the desired medical property with sugar or other substance, brings it into a plastic state, and easily inserts itinto the cavity of the open-topped shell.

panying drawings.

Figure 1` represents a plan, and Fig. 2 a sectional view of a caramel made in the form which characterizes my invention, and also the compound or drug placed therein according to my design.

A is the druo and B is the caramel.

. I hereby intrtduce to that class ofthe public AUGUSTv SEITZ.

As an illustration, I will describe the accom-` known as druggists77 a most useful and de-
