SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 356,944, dated February 1, 1887.

Application tiled February 2- 1885. Renewed July (3, 1886. Serial No. 20?,263. (No specimens) paper; and it consists in a cover or backing of flexible material and aface or filling of cottonseed hulls united by a suitable adherent, substantially as and for the purpose hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

In order to enable others skiiled in the art to which my invention ap pertains to make and use the same, I will now proceed to describe its construction and use, referring to the accompanying drawings, in which-- Figure 1 is a perspective view of a section of my material suitable for carpet-lining, packing articles, 820.; and Fig. 2 is a similar view of a stair-pad of the same material.

it represents a sheet of paper, card-board, cloth, or any flexible material suitable for the purpose in view; and Z) is a layer of cottonseed hulls, secured upon the flexible backing by any suitable adherent such, for instance, as glue.

For a lining for carpets and similar use, or a packing for bottles and other fragile articles, it will be found sutficient for the purpose to secure a layer of seed-hulls of sufficient depth upon one side of the backing, the adherent causing the soft material to be retained in position; but for stair-pads the backing to will be cut of sufiicient size and the proper shape to fold over upon the soft filling, and the ends also overlapped, as seen fully at a, in Fig. 2, in order to completely cover and inclose the hulls. The material so formed is a good mothproteetor, and in consequence of this and its soft, elastic nature forms a very good and economical lining or packing.

I do not desire to limit myself to any par ticular material as a backing or cover, and will use any desirable adherent to secure the cottonseed hulls thereto.

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

1. A lining or packing composed of cottonseed hulls secured upon a backing offlexihle material, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

2. A lining or packing composed of cottonseed hulls inclosed in a covering of flexible material having its ends folded over and secured, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
