CORNELIUS A. KIGER, OF KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI.
Application filed October 29, 1914. Serial No. 869,168.
To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, CORNELIUS A. Krone, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kansas City, in the county of Jackson and State of Missouri, have invented a certain new and useful Improvement in Bag-Linings, of which the following is a specification.
My invention relates to improvements in bag linings.
The object of my invention is to provlde a bag with an expansible lining which may be easily inserted into or removed from the bag, which will be sanitary, which will be adapted for bags of different diameters, and which will prevent the contents adhering to the inner wall of the bag.
The novel features of my invention are hereinafter fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings, which illustrate the preferred embodiment of my 1nvention, Figure l is a plan view of the blank from which the lining is constructed. Fig. 2 is a perspective view, partly broken away, of a bag provided with my improved lining. Fig. 3 is a view of the lining shown folded fiat ready to be inserted into a bag. Fig. a is a longitudinal sectional view on the line 4:4: of Fig. 3. Fig. 5 is a cross section on the line 55 of Fig. 2.
Similar reference characters designate similar parts in the different views.
1 designates a sheet of paper or simllar material, preferably oiled or waxed, of rectangular form and provided, preferably at its lower end with notches 2 of V form from which respectively longitudinally extend creases 3. The sheet 1 is preferably provided above the notches 2 with parallel transverse creases 4. The lower corners of the sheet 1 are preferably cut away, as shown in Fig. 1, said cut away portions and the notches 2 preventing the lining from bunching at the bottom when expanded in the bag.
In the operation of my invention, the sheet is folded along the creases 3, with its side edges overlapping each other. The lower end is then folded along the creases 4:,
as shown in Fig. thereby closing the bottom of the lining. The lining may then be slipped into a bag 5, which with the lining may be expanded from flat form to the circular form shown in Fig. 2. The side edges of the lining not being fastened together may slip one on the other until the lining bears against the inner walls of the bag 5. If the bag is now filled, the lining will pre- 1pent the contents touching the walls of the My invention is particularly adapted for lining sausage sacks, but it may be applied to sacks for most any use.
I do not limit my invention to the struc ture shown and described, as modifications, within the scope of the appended claims, may be made without departing from the spirit of my invention.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is
1. A bag lining comprising a sheet of paper or similar material having notches in one end and provided with creases extending longitudinally from the notches respectively, and provided with transverse creases above the notches, and adapted to be folded along said creases with the lateral edges of the sheet overlapping each other.
2. The combination with a bag, of a lining therefor comprising a sheet of paper folded upon itself and having the overlapping side edges left free to permit the lateral expansion of the lining to fit the inner wall of the bag, the lower end of the lining being notched, the lining being folded longitudinally from said notches respectively, the lower end of the lining being folded along transverse lines above the notches so as to form a closed bottom for the lining, the top of the lining being left open.
In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in presence of two subscribing witnesses.
