H. G. DA'YT0N. Pocket Disinfecter and lnhaler.

Patented oct. 19,1875.






Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 168.972, dated October 19, 1875; application filed July 31,1875.


To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY Gr. DAYTON, of Maysville, in the county of Mason and State ot' Kentucky, have invented a. new and valuable Improvement in Pocket Disint'ecters and Inlia-lers; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description ot' the construction and operation of the saine, reference being had to the annexed drawings making a part ot' this specification, and to the letters and iigures ot' reference marked thereon.

Figures l and 2 ot' the drawings are representations ot' plan views of' my device, and Fig. 3 is a detail view thereof. Fig. 4 .and 5 are sectional views of the same.

This invention has relation to portable disinfecting and inhaling apparatus; and it consists in the construction and novel arrangement of the perforated metallic case-sections, whereof the rim ot' one shuts within that ot' the other,tlie notched and laminated disks ot' porous material, and the tubular ring-stein or inhaling mouth-tube, all as hereinafter fully shown and described, whereby an apparatus of medallion orlocket torm is provided, adapted to be suspended by means ot' a cord t'roin the 'neck ot' the wearer, or otherwise worn, as may be desired.

In the accompanying drawings, the letters A A designate the sections of the metallic case, whereof the rim a of one shuts within the rim a ot the other, as shown. At one point, through the outer rim a', an aperture, b, for the passage ot' the ring-sten1 is made. In the rim a ot' the inner section a notch, c, is formed to correspond with the aperture b, and diametrically opposite said notch c a second notch, c', is made. These notches give a little elasticity to t-he inner case in a direction at right angles with the diameter connecting the saine. B represents the ring-stem carrying the ring O, whereby the cord or ribbon is attached for the purpose of suspension. This stem B is tubular, the passage through it coinin unicatiii g with the interior ofthe case through the aperture b and notch c of the respective sections. It is held in place by being upset on the exterior of the inner end, or in some other suitable manner, it being preferred that this stein should have free motion of rotation. When thus arranged and constructed it serves as a mouth-piece or inhaling-tube, whereby the atmospheric air i'nay bedra'wn over the charged surfaces of the porous disks within the case iiito the lungs. D D designate the disks, Which are made ot' blotting-paper, porous wood, or other materia-l ot' porous structure. Several ot' these disks are preferred in order that the surface of contact over which the air passes mayr be multiplied within the small compass ot' the case. d to form a passage common to the upper and under surfaces at the entrace of the mouthtube B.

vWhen the disks have been chargedwith the chosen disint'ecting or inhaling substance they are placed within the sections, which are then connected and secured together by means of the indentations e in the rims ot' the sections,

said indentations being located, preferably. at

the extremities of a diameter at right angles with the diameter connecting the notches c and c. Hence the sections can be sprung apart without difculty when it becomes necessary to replace the disks or to examine the interior ot' the little apparatus. One of the sections is provided with an opening, h, somewhat larger tlian the air-perforations r, whereby the liquid used for charging may be poured in upon the disks. A pivoted cover or gate, k, ot' sector form, havin g a stud, m, which serves as a stop and handle., is located on the inside of the section, and serves to close the opening h when it is not iii use.

When the locket is not designed to be suspended from the neck the ring may be dispensed With, and an aperture made for inhaling purposes.

What I claiml as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The sectional inhaling and disinfecting apparatus, consisting ot' the perforated case A A', inhaling-stein B, ring O, and porous disks D, substantially as specified.

In testimony that I claim the above I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two Witnesses.




The disk D is notched usually at.
