AWM 7, 1936v L. WINTERS @Mm DOSE MEASURING DEVICE Filed' July 21, 1954 BY @jaw/y@ ATTORNEY Patented Apr. 7, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE Application July 21,

1 Claim.

This invention relates to dose measuring devices and its general object is to provide a container in the form of a bottle having a pair of communicating outlet means in the form of bores, in the neck thereof, one outlet having a stopper and being in direct communication with the bottle and the other acting with indicia and graduations, as well as with a stopper therefor, as the dose measuring portion of the device.

A further object of the invention is to provide a dose measuring device that is simple in construction, inexpensive to manufacture as a part of a bottle, and extremely eicient in use and service.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and specifically pointed 20 out in the appended claim.

In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein like characters denote` like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which:

Figure 1 is a side View of a bottle constructed with my dose measuring device forming a part thereof, and illustrates parts in section.

Figure 2 is a top plan view of the bottle.

Figure 3 is a view illustrating the device in use, 30 with parts in section.

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken through the neck of the bottle.

Figure 5 is a view of the bottle partly in section with a stopper of one of the outlets removed.

Figure 6 is a fragmentary View of the device on an enlarged scale.

While I have illustrated my device as forming a part of a bottle it can be separable therefrom and secured thereto in any well known manner.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the reference numeral l indicates a container made from glass and the form of a bottle ,that includes a neck 2 which acts as the body of the device and the neck is provided with a pair of parallel bores 4B 3 and 4 extending therethrough, and the bore 3 communicates direct with the body of the bottle,

while the bore 4 is closed from the body through the medium of a partition 5, but communicates with the bore 3 by a port 6, for a purpose which 50 will be presently apparent.

Each of the bores is provided with a stopper indicated respectively by the reference numerals 1934, serial No. 736,425

(o1. zzn-147) 'I and 8, and the portion of the neck adjacent to the bore 4 has arranged on its outer surface indicia and graduation marks 8 which act as indicating means in determining the proper dosage desired, during the use of my device.

The stopper 'l is of a length to cover the port 6, to close off communication between the bores 3 and 4. The stopper has a frictional fit with its bore throughout the length thereof for movement at intervals in its length to vary the dosage, and the stopper 8 cooperates with the graduation marks in determining the desired dosage as will be apparent.

In the use of my device, the stopper 8 is arranged so that its inner end registers With the desired graduation mark, the stopper T is then moved outwardly to uncover the port 6 to allow the contents of the bottle to flow from the body, through the port 6 and into the bore 4. When the space between the partition 5 and the inner end of the stopper 8 is filled, the stopper 1 is moved inwardly to cover the port 6, with the result the desired dosage is then arranged within the bore 4, and the stopper 8 is removed to allow the dosage to be poured therefrom as will be apparent upon inspection of Figure 5.

From the above description and disclosure of the drawing, it will be obvious that I have provided a dose measuring device that is very simple and easy to use, and is capable of providing accurate doses with very little effort.

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.

I desire it to be understood that I may make changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.

What I claim is:

A bottle having a neck portion provided with two parallel bores, one of which is closed to the bottle and the other communicates with the said bottle, the wall dividing the bores having a port therethrough which establishes a communication between the bores in a line with the plane of the inner wall that closes one of the bores from the bottle, and each of said bores designed to receive therein a removable stopper of a length exceeding the depth of the bores.
