UNITED STATES OLLIE E. BEEBE, OF LANSING, BEICHIGAN.
Application filed February This invention relates to a measure designed primarily for the home bakers use, the object being" to provide a measure in the form of a. scoop having separate compartments of different capacities whereby three accurate measurements of bulk material can be effected. x
Many materials such as flour, sugar, butte-r, lard, etc., require a level measure and when a quantity called for is-less than that of a cupfulit cannot beaccurately measured in an ordinary measuring cup.
It is an object of the present invention to avoid the objections heretofore present in ordinary measuring devices by providing a measure having separate compartments which can be separately or simultaneously filled with the same or different] materials. These compartments are of such capacity as to hold the required amount of the principal ingredients used in baking, thus assuring their use in the proper proportions.
With the foregoing and other objects in view which will appear as the description proceeds, the lnvention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein disclosed may be made within the scope of whatis claimed, withoutde parting from the spirit of the invention.
In the accompanying drawings the preferred form of the invention has been shown. In said drawings, Figure 1 is a perspectiveview of the device. a
Figure 2 is a top plan view thereof. Referring to'the figures by characters of reference 1 designates the flat bottom of the measure, the same being provided with an upwardly extending inclinedback wall 2, to which is attached a handle 3 of any desired configuration. The measuring device has side walls 4 preferably triangular as back 2 and interposed between these side walls is a partition 5 likewise connecting the bottom l to the back 2 and of the same contour as the walls 4. In practice it is prewalls.

ferred to so arrange the partition as to divide the measuring device intotwo compartments, compartment 6 being half the size of compartment '4'.
Either of these compartments can be filled with an'ingredien t to be used and the material can be leveled off readily along the straight upper edges of the walls of the compartments. If preferred both compartments can be filled with the same kind of material and leveled oif. ,Thus, as will be apparent, three positive measurements can be obtained with the one device.
' The measurer can, of course, be made of different sizes and,'if desired, the partition 'can be located so as to make the proportionate areas of the two compartmentsdifferent from what has been shown and described.
7 What is claimed is:
1. A measuring device including a scoop having a longitudinal partition parallel with the sides of the coop, the top edges of the sides and partitions being disposed in the same plane.
2. A measuring device including a bottom plate having an upstanding back. wall and side walls connecting the bottom and back wall, and a partition connecting the bottom and back wall and interposed between the side walls, said partition being parallel with the side walls and havingits upper edge in the same plane with the upper edges of the side walls, said partition and walls cooperating to provide compartments of different capacities.
' S. A measurlng device including a bottom plate, an upstanding back wall, side walls connecting the bottom plate to the back wall and having straight upper edges extending from the top of the back wall to the front edge of the bottom plate, a. partition connecting the bottom plate and the back wall and dividing the device into separate compa tments of different capacities, said partition having its top edge in the same plane with the corresponding edges ofthe slde OLLIE E.
