Myinvention relates to improvements in i dispensers and more particularly to that-type used for delivering sugar or similar granular substances and especially designed for table use.
It is an object of my invention to construct adispenser of this general type in which the container will keep the material or substance sanitary or free from foreign matter and the dispenser will deliver a specific quantity of ,such material for instance a teaspoonful" of sugar,' obviating the necessity of using a a neck of the container; Holding the housing -It is a further object of my invention to provide such a device that is simple in conspoon.
struction, easy to take apart, clean, and assemble, and one that can be conveniently operated to deliver the desired quantity of material with certainty. I 1
'It is a further object of my invention to so interfit and connect the dispenser device and container that the material will be confined within the container so as 'to' be prevented from entering the housing of the dispenser device or the space between it and that part ofthe container in which said-device is located. r v
Other objects of my invention will be readily apparent from the following detailed'description-of my invention taken in connection with the accompanyingdrawings in which:
"Figure 1. is a a side elevation, partly in section nshowing a dispenser constructed in accordance withimy 'inventiony a Fig. .l21is,a sectionalview showing the disv; 4 Like. numerals of "references indicate like; parts throughout the several views of: the- Mytnimproved': dispenser comprises a contain'erl lpreferably in the form 'of a glassjar,
1: and an attachment 2' for dispensing the material-from said containerand hereinafter'referredtozas; the dlspenser 1n contradistmc'tion of any desired shape but provided with a cylindrical vneck 3' having external threads and an internal flange or supporting shoulder 4, the lattr forming "a seat for thecylndrical housing 5 of the dispenser which fits in said neck and is closed at its lower end as shown in 'Fig. 5. A rubber seal may be em ployed between the housing'and supporting flangebr shoulder in the neck of the container, 7
but it is preferred to provide such a close fit that the contents will be prevented from entering the space between the dispenser and through central openings in said cover and bottom of the housing to connect the same together is a pin 7 having its ends reduced in diameter to enter saidopenings and upset or riveted on the parts it connects. Pivoted on this pin within the housing, are two spaced apart disks 8 and 9 connected by a 'dispensin-g chamber 10 preferably welded to saiddisks,
the latter being provided with holes on a line*with the chamber through which the -material passes toJand'from' "said chamber.
For operating the disks and chamber carried thereby the upper' disk 8fatone edge is provided with an'operating handlellimovable in a; cut-away portion 5 of the upper part of the housing and projecting through a slot 6 in the cover plate beyond which terminates in. ras n t 11.

The body :Qf; the container may be metal strap 16' welded to" the" dispensing chamber and having'an 'extension' curved 4 i respect toithecovera spring letls-securedat jar.
around the pivot pin on which the disks are mounted for protecting the spring.
, The operation -of dispensing the contents of the container in predetermined quantities determined by the we of the chamber 10, will be readily understood from the fore oing descri tion of the construction of the 'spenser device, for parts being in the position shown in Fig. 1 the said chamber is filled by turning the container upside down, and then by moving the handle against the action of the. sprin so that both ends of the chamber are c ose by the disks the container may be turned upright and the handle further turned to bring the chamber in line with the discharge opening in the cover, as shown in Fig. 2 for pouring out the contents of said container. Thus it will be apparent that predetermined ualities of the container may be quickly an easily dispensed by simply turning said container from one position to anot er andsimultaneously manipulating the handle the spring acting to maintain the upper end of the dispensing chamber closed by the cover so that the contents of the container will be protected and retained in the container in any osition of the latter or until the handle of t e dispenser device is mani ulated in the manner herinbefore descri d for the purpose of dispensing a certain quantity of the material according to the size of the chamber. When the dis user is used for dispensing sugar, for whic it is especially ada ted, the chamber ma be of a'size to hol one-or two teaspoonfu of su er, and as will be obvious my invention may applied to an ordinary glass fruit jar having an internal shoulder 4, or in connection with a fruit jar without such a shoulder by having an outwardly extending flange 5"-on the housing 5, indicated indotted lines Fig. 5, whereby the cover or screw cap 6 willsecurely hold the housing carrying the other parts of the dlspensing device securely in the neck of the Other modifications or changes may be made within the spirit and scope of the appended claims.
I claim: dispenser device for containers com- PllSlllg a housing fitting within the neck of the container, said'housmg having a bottom with an inlet opening from the container through the same, a retaining cap fitting over the mouth of the container and having an outlet opening out of line with the aforesaid inlet openin in the bottom of the housing, a. in exten g between the cap and bottom 0 the housing at the center thereof, spaced apart disks rotatably mounted on the pin againstthe inner sides of the bottom and ca and having a dis enser chamber interpose between them an opening out of each disk, and means for rotating the disks.
