4 Disinfectant Packages. N0. 142,963. PatentedSeptemberl6,1873.

WITNESSES. I INVENTOR. 24% fl/ ZWJPJZM W 1*" WILLIAM i w ll it Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 14l2,@$$ dated September 16, 1873; application filed March 15, 1873. I

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that E, WrLLiAM P. Terms, of Boston, in the county of Suffolk and fitate of Massachusetts, have invented a new and valuable Improvement in Disinfectant-Package; and. 1 do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being llacl to the annexed drawings making a part of this specification, and to the letters and; figures of reference marked 1L thereon,

Fi ure of the clrawin s is a re resent-aa non oi my cover, sig, 21s a sectional view of my package,

This invention has relation to a new article of manufacture, consisting of a portable disinfectant-package, so constructed. and arranged. that when the outer cap is removell by the consumer the disinfectant-powder can be distributed in an economical and uniform manner.

The object of the present invention is to providea disiniectant-paokage of which the contents are not liable to come in contact with the hands or person of the consumer in the distribution thereof, which is nevertheless accomplished with uniformity and economy. The importance oft-lie invention will be manifest when we consider the large extent of surface often required to be sprinlrlerl, the cost of the disinfectant material, the unpleasant nature of the exhalations, and the tlifficulty with which they are removed from the person when the material has come in contact therewith,

In carrying out the invention a long cylinrlrical or prismatic box or" paper, or preferabiy pasteboaril, is constructed, one end being closed in the usual manner of attaching the bottoms to paper bones, except that a strip of cloth or tape is-bouml around the corner at c, as shown in the drawings, in ortler to give strength, several pounds of the material being sometimes placetl in one box, which should not be of so large a tiiaiueter ti. t it cannot be conveniently grasped in the be After the introduction of the disinfect:-

powder, the other curl l) of the box is secured V thereto in i similar strong manner, a piece of cloth or tape, 0, being employed to bind the joint at the corner, as above described. This is especially necessary at this end. of the box, as, in the longitudinal shaking which the package undergoes in the distribution of its contents, the weight thereof is brought at short intervals, often with. great force, against the end I).- A number of large perforations, d, are made through the end I) for the passage of the disinfectant These perforations are usually about a quarter of an inch in diameter, and should be at such a distance apart that the pasteboard; wall between them will not be unduly weakened. (Ever the perforated end is placed the cap 0, which is bound to the case with the wrapper or label, after which the package is ready for use, The consumer simply cuts the wrapperor label at the joint of the cap 0, an l,re1noving the sonic, shakes the powder through the perforated entl over the surface to be disinfected, after which the cap or cover is rcplacerl anti the package put away for future use. V

i am aware that pepper and spice boxes have been made of metal, with perforated tops, and I do not claim such invention. lit

is apparent that such minute perforations would; not answer for the distribution of the disinfectant material, as there would be a want of economy in time; and, further, the virtue oi the enhalations from the powrler would be,in many instances, lost vbefore reaching the infected surface,

I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters ,Tatent, is--.

As new article of manufacture, the {mole age of tlisini ecting-powrler inoasecl in a long tcer ase, having the close bottom anti" perifi'iklftfiil false top l) bonnet securely to said ease, and removable e covering said pericrate i ialse top, anrl bound thereto by the wrapper, substantially as specifies,

test ony that 5 claim one above l have hereunto st of two witnesses ill.
