TOY.

application filed March 1, 1916.

T0 all whom t may concern.'

Be it known that I, PETERSON H. CHERRY, a citizen of the United States, residing at Los Angeles, in the county of Los Angeles and State of California, have invented a new and useful Toy, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to toys, and the principal object ofthe invention is to provide a to-y which will furnish amusement, and at the same time serve as a purifying and cleansing agent for the air. v

Referring to the drawings, which are for illustrative purposes only, Figure 1 is an elevation partly in section, showing the method of charging the toy. Fig. 2 is a side elevation, showing the method of lighting the toy. Fig. 3 isy a side elevation partly in section showing the method of operating the toy, and Fig. A is an enlarged section on a plane' represented by the line WMM of Fig. 3 looking in the direction of the arrows.

ln the form of the invention illustrated in the drawings, a standard 11 is rigidly secured in the base 12 which may be of wood or other suitable material. A plunger 11 extends inside a barrel 13 in which it lits tightly, the barrel 13 gripping the plunger 11 by means of a spring 141 so that the barrel will remain in any positionpin which it may be placed on the plunger 11.V Sliding on the exterior of the barrel 13 is a hub. 15 of a bowl 16, the hub 15 being provided with a spring 17 which grips the barrel 13 in the same manner of the spring 14:, illustrated in Fig. L1. A projection 171 is formed on the barrel 13 to limit the movement of the hub 15 thereon. The bowl 16 has a lower portion 13 of spherical contour, this spherical portion merging into an upper cylindrical portion 19. A cap' 20 fits over the cylindrical portion 19, and a mouth piece 21 is fixed to the top thereof, this mouth piece having an aperture 22 through the center thereof. rihe mouth piece is fiared as shown. For the purpose of conveniently charging the toy, a metal box 23 'is provided, this box containing` the aromatic material 24, this aromatic material 24 may be resinous gums, or any material which will smolder when ignited. 1n practice I prefer to make it of tarry substances, which will have the necessary combustible characteristics, andi tomix with this tarry material various aromatic and antiseptic materials.

The method of. operating the invention is Specification of Letters Patent.

Serin no. 811,545'.

as follows: The plunger 11 is drawn down to a point near the bottom of the barrel 13, and the barrel is filled by forcing it down into the mixture of aromatic material 24 in the box 23, or the aromatic material may be forced into the barrel with the fingers. The plunger 11 is then forced down to compact the aromatic material in the barrel 13 into a cylinder, the aromatic material being of such a4 character that it has considerable mechanical strength when compacted in cylindrical form. One method of filling the toy is shown in Fig. 1. The toy ,is then placed upright on the base 12, and the barrel 13 is forced downwardly until ai small amount o'f the cylinder of aromatic material projects from the upper end ofthe barrel 13. It may their be lighted as shown in Fig. 2 burning with a small flame. This flame heats the. cylinder of aromatic material and compacts it so that after the fiame is blown out the aromatic material will continue to' smolder, giving off a pleasant odor and serving to disinfect and fumigate the space in which it is placed. The bowl 16' catches and retains any hot particles of the cylinder which may become detached; y

If it is desired to operate it as a toy, the barrel 13' is forced up into the position shown in Fig. 3, in which it surrounds the cylinder which is smoldering slowly. The cap 20 is then put in place as shown in Fig. 3, and it is possible to form smoke rings which are shown at 50 in that figure, these smoke rings being formed by pressing the cap 20 quickly down, and expelling a litt-le pu of smoke through the mouth piece 21, this smoke havingl accumulated between the cap'y 20 and the bowl 16. The heat of the smoldering material tends to pack the cylinder so that it is welded together and its mechanical strength is greatly increased.

If it is desired to extinguish the aromatic material it may be d'one either by letting the cap 2O remain at rest, or by pulling the hub 15 up around the cylinder, thus shutting off the air therein.

When the cap 20' is raised a partial vacuum is formed therein, and this causes fresh air to rush in around the smoldering cylinder,

i thus supplying the oxygen of combustion.

l claim as my invention 1. A burner for aromatic material, co1n prising a barrel in which the aromatic material may be compacted, a bowl surrounding the upper end of said barrel in such a lill position as to catch any particles of aromatic .material that may fall from said barrel, a plunger in said barrel, and a base in which the lower end of said plunger is secured.
