TTNTE %AT% PATENT EDWARD C. BERNERS, OF TWO RIVERS, WISCONSIN.
' DISPENSING-RECEPTACLE FOR MUCILAGE.
Application filed September 25, 1916.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that T, EDWARD C. BEnNnns, a citizen of the United States, and resident of Two Rivers, in the county of Manitowoc and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dispensing-Receptacles for Mucilage; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof.
The present invention relates to new and useful improvements in that type of self sealing receptacles for holding and dispensing mucilage and the like and including a protective handle casing.
One important object of the present invention is to provide a means for initially sealing the receptacle which is not affected by accidental flexufe of the distributor hood, to permit possible leakage of fluid in transit, but which may be readily broken when desired and which whenbroken forms a no obstruction to the ready distribution of fluid from the receptacle.
Another object is toprovide an exceedingly simple and more efficient means for frictionally holding the receptacle in the casing which may be readily incorporated with the casing during its manufacture.
- With the above and other advantages in view the invention resides more particularly in the novel combination, arrangement and formation of parts more particularly hereinafter described and particularly pointed out in the appended claims.
In the drawings:
Figure 1 is a longitudinal sectional view taken centrally through the improved device,
Fig. 2 is a transverse sectional view on the line 2-2 of Fig. 1, and
Fig. 3 is an elevational view of the easing sleeve, showing the means for securing the friction pin.
Fig. 4: is a transverse sectional view similar to Fig. 2, and showing a modified form of the friction holding means.
Referring now more particularly to the accompanying drawings, 5 designates the cylindrical handle casing which is closed at one end and in the other end of which is vious application preferably formed of glass an is o a gth slig y greate than the Specification of Letters Patent.

casing including its projectedsleeve portion 6 whereby the mouth end of the receptacle extends outwardly of the sleeve p0rtion.
This mouth end of the receptacle isprovided with a circumscribing bead b over which is stretched the open end of a hood 9 similar to the head of my said previous application, and provided with similar radial slits 10. In the present structure, however, a novel means of initially sealing the container is provided which comprises a sheet of waxed paper, or other fragile ma terial impervious to moisture, which is placed over the mouth of the receptacle with its edges bent thereabout to form sub stantially a cap and which is retained in its place by the binding engagement of the adjacent end of the distributer about its edges.
This form of seal is not affected by possible accidental flexure of the hood, such as might occur in transit, and the seal is adapted to be broken by grasping the hood adjacent the bead 8, and imparting a partial rotation thereto whereby the paper is ruptured to permit passage of fluid therethrough, subsequent sealings of the receptacle between successive dispensing operations being procured in the usual manner by the mucilage drying in the slits 10. Thus there is no tendency for mucilage to dry in the fissures of the broken paper seal member to procure a possible sealing at that point.
To provide an improved means for frictionally holding the receptacle in the easing, a pin 12 is passed transversely through the sleeve at one side of its axis, and has a head 13 at one end and its other end bent at- 14 to lie along the outer surface of the sleeve, this bent portion forming what also may be termed a head. This pin is incorporated with the sleeve prior to its insertion into the casing proper 5, and thus a construction is procured which forms no obstruction in the casing. The receptacle is insertedbetween the pin and the opposite side of the sleeve and the proper frictional pressure is procured by a resilient flexure of the pin and of the adjacent wall portions of the sleeve.
It is also noted that the sleeve holds the lower portion of the receptacle spaced from the sides of the casing and that the open end of the hood fits in the sleeve to protect the mouth end of the receptacle against jar.
In the commercial application of this invention it has been found expedient to use the friction holding structure illustrated more particularly in Fig. 4, and in this structure the pin member 15 is U-shaped in the form of a staple and has its arms passed transversely through the sleeve between it and the main casing 5 and with the outer ends of its arms bent as shown at 16 to extend between the sleeve and casing in the manner of the end let of the pin 12, to thus provide for the secnrement of both ends ()ili each oi. the arms, the receptacle 8 being passed between the arms. This structure holds the receptacle thus positively spaced from the casing as well as holding it frictionally against displacement and the staple pin member here illustrated maybe associated with the sleeve by various existing types of machines now on the commercial market.
As in the said previous application the casing forms a protective covering and a handle for the receptacle proper and is only adapted to be detached When it is desired to heat the receptacle so as to thin its contents to procure a more ready flow thereof in cold weather in which instance the receptacle would be preferably placed in hot water.
The sealing cap it is noted serves in addition to preventing a possible leakage of inucilage in transportation, also as a means Copies of this patent may be obtained for for preventing a possible engagement of the cluding a mouth portion, a sealing cap ol fragile material disposed over the mouth portion and a resilient distributor hood having one end distended. to receive said mouth portion, to secure said hood and the cap.
A receptacle comprising a body including a mouth portion, a circumscribing head on said mouth portion, a sealing cap of fragile material disposed over the mouth portion, and a resilient distributer hood having one end distended to receive said mouth portion to secure said hood and the cap.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand at Two Rivers, in the county of Manitowoc and State of Wisconsin, in the presence of two witnesses.
