SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 310,999, dated January 20, 1885.

Application filed September 30, 1884. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, ANGUS S. HUBBARD, of Milwaukee, in the county of Milwaukeaand in the State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Atomizers; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description thereof.

My invention relates to that class of articles known as atomizers, arid will be fully described hereinafter.

In thedrawings, Figure l is a central vertical section of my device, and Fig. 2 is a like Viewof a modification thereof.

A is an ordinary rubber bulb, having an air-valve, a, in its lower end, or at any other suitable point. and an internalIy-screwtlireaded collar, B, in its neck.

0 is a cover that has an externally-screwthreaded neck, 0, which has an aperture through its center, and a circular recess on its under side to receive a centrally-perforated stopper, D, the lower end of which is inserted in the receptacle E, that contains the liquid E to be atomized.

F is a tube that extends up from within the liquid-receptacle through the stopper D and cover 0. The upper portion of the central perforation in the stopper D is enlarged, and a tube, G, is extended down parallel with tube F, and then bent so as to be passed out at an angle to it and open into the bulb. The outer ends of thetubes are ofcorresponding form to those of ordinary atomizers.

The cover may be of any'desired form, and may be provided with one or more necks on top for attaching atomizing-tubes of different forms to it.

I do not confine myself to any particular form of liquid-receptacle or of stopper, as any form of either that will admit of the suspension of the liquid-receptacle in the bulb by the stopper will serve my purpose.

The operation of my device is very simple. The compression of the bulb forcing the air through tubeGwill cause it to draw the liquid from the receptacle and inject it upon the surface to be treated.

Instead of passing the tube G through the cover and cork, I may place this tube on the outside of the bulb, and have it extend up to of the tube G may be removed from the inflexibldiart for this purpose.

The receptacle E is preferably of glass, so as to show its contents and condition whenever removed from the bulb, and the tubes F G may be of glass, metal, or any material preferred, and the stopper D may be of either rubber, cork, or any substance found suitable.

Having thus described my invention, What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. An air-bulb inclosing a liquid-receptacle, in combination with one tube leading out from within the receptacle and another leading out from the space within the bulb, and between it and thereceptaclaiorming anatomizing-injector, substantially as set forth.

2. In an atomizer, the combination of a liquidreceptacle inclosed within a compressible air-bulb, with tubes leading, respectively,from the receptacle and air-bulb to the outside, substantially as set forth.

The combination, in an atomizer, of a compressible bulb, a liquid'receptacle, a stopper, a threaded collar, and a corresponding cover having a recess for the stopper of the liquid-receptacle, and perforations for the atomizing-tubes, substantially as set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I have hereunto set my hand, at Milwaukee, in the county ofMilwaukee and State of VViscousin, in the presence of two witnesses.
