Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 177,749, dated May 23, 1876; application filed April 25, 1876.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY BEDDEN, of the city, county, and State of New York, have inview as Fig. 1, with the corners of the funnel folded over. Fig. 3 is the same view with the folded funnel partly rolled. Fig. 4 is the same .view with the funnel rolled into the mouth of the bag and the cords drawn. detail cross-section taken through the line was,
Fig. 5 is the Fig. 4. a I
The object of this invention is to furnish an improvement in securing the mouths of grain and other bags in'such a way that the mouths of the bags cannot gape or leak, and which will avoid the necessity of sewing every time they are filled. V
The invention consists in the combination of the strings with the mouth of the bag and with'the funnel-shaped tube, as hereinafter fully described.
A is the body of the bag, which has lugs a formed upon'its corners, in the usual way. In the mouth of the bag A, at a little distance within its edges, is sewed a funnel-shaped or flaring tube, B, through which the bagis filled and emptied. 4
When the bag has been filled the sides of the funnel B are brought together, and the corners are folded down, as shown in Fig. 2. The folded tube is then rolled together until it is within the mouth of the bag A, as shown in Figs. 1, 2, and 3. The pressure of the conother side, along the end, and out near the lugs a. A
The cords 0 should have knots formed upon their outerends, to prevent them from being drawn in. a
After the funnel B has been rolled up, the strings are drawn, which closes the mouth of the bag, so that the rolled funnel cannot get out of the said month until the strings O are.
The outer ends of the strings 0 may be left hanging loose, orthey may be tied around the lug's a.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Let- V ters Patent, is-
The combination of the strings U with the mouth of the bagAand with the funnel-shaped tube B, substantially as herein shown and described.
