A look screw 12 is carried by the chamber. Therefore, the desired amount of dles 22, the operator causes the entire device, with the exception of the bell 19 and the valve tube and seat, to move downwardly. This downward movement causes the outlet tube ,6 to move into registration with the seat 17, thus cutting off the flow of the liquid into the measuring chamber. This downward movement also brings the measuring chamberinto communication with the openings 16 of the valve tube 15, thus allowing the liquid in the measuring chamber to pass through the valve tube 15 into the bottle.

When the measured amount of liquid has passed into the. bottle, the device may be raised allowing the valve tube 15 and the seat 17 to be moved to their normal positions by the force of the spring 21 against the bell 19. The liquid is again allowed to .pass from the receptacle 1 through the outlet tube 6 and into the measuring chamber until it has reached the lower end of the air tube 7. This operation may be continued until the entire amount of the liquid has been deposited in the bottles. To change the amount of liquid, the tube may be raised or lowered within the sleeve for cutting off the passage of the liquid into the measuring chamber at predetermined levels.

As stated heretofore, the main object of our invention is to provide a device for receiving the remaining liquid of a syruping machine and disposing this liquid in measured quantities in bottles. However, it is obvious that the deviceanay be used for bottling sample liquids which are placed in containers in small quantities.

flow of a fluid into said housing, said means comprising an air tube, and means carried by liquid has passed into the measuring chamsaid sleeve for holding said tube in adjusted ber. By forcing downwardly upon the hanp osition.
