Specification of Letters Patent.

ratenteanev. es, raie.

Application filed April 8, 1916. 'Serial No. 89,786.

To all v107mm t may concern Be it known that I, LounELLn H. EVERTS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Minneapolis, in the county of Hennepin and State of Minnesota, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Compart ment-Pillows;u and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such aswill enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

My invention has for its object to provide an improved compartment pillow; and to such ends, generally stated, the invention consists of the novel construction and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and defined in the claims.

The invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings wherein like characters indicate like views.

Referring to the drawings: Figure l is a plan view with some partsbroken away and some parts sectioned; Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section taken on the line :r2 m2 of Fig. l; and Fig. 3 is a transverse section taken on the line ma w3 of Fig. l.

The pillow tick proper is made up of two rectangular sheets l sewed together at their adjacent edges. The pillow is divided longitudinally into three compartments, by two transverse partitions 2, and the central compartment is subdivided into two subcoin` pertinents by a longitudinal partition 3 that extends between and is stitched to the cen tral portions of the transverse partitions 2. All of the said partitions are, of course, stitched at their edges to the two sheets lof the pillow tick. The feathers in the several compartments, only part of 'which are shown, are indicated by the character y..

A feather pillow without compartments or partitions, is, .as is well known, very easily forced out of shape. The feathers are especially liable to be forced from the center toward the ends of the pillow, and furparts throughout the several,

ther-more, the feathers at the center ofthe l pillow are much more likely to be shifted out of place than those at the end of the pillow, for the reason that the weight of the head of the person using the pillowY is usually on the central portion of the pillow. In fact., I have found that the pillow will maintain its best form when the feathers at 'the ends of the pillow are permitted to shift slightly in a direction transversely yof the pillow while the feathers at the center of the pillow are not only prevented from shifting toward the ends of the pillow, but are also prevented from sl'iiftiug transversely of the pillow. Otherwise stated, I have found that the best results are obtained by using the partitions as above described, and shown in the drawings. rihe short partition 3, furthermore, serves to reinforce and tie together the central portions of the transverse partitions. All of the said partitions are, of course, made lof fabric or flexible material, and would preferably be made of ticking or of the same material as the sheets of the pillow tick. The transverse partitions are of substantially elliptical form, inasmuch as that is the desired normal-shape of the cross section of the pillow.

l/ihat I claim is:

l. A pillow having flexible longitudinally spaced transverse parti tions and a short longitudinal partition connecting the intermediate portions of said transverse partitions.

2. ifi pillow having iexible longitudinally spaced transverse partitions and a short longitudinal partition connecting the intermediate portions of said transverse partitions, all of thtL said partitions being stitched at their edges to the pillow case.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
