TOILET OR WRAPPING PAPER ROLL.
' SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 396,675, dated January 22, 1889. Application filed May 11, 1886- Serial No. 201,808. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern..-
Be it known that I, SETH IVHEELER, of the city and county of Albany, in the State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Toilet or Vrapping Paper Rolls, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the accol'npanying drawings, forming part hereof.
My invention has reference to seeming the IO convolutions of a roll of toilet-paper havingits lines of perforations in the same plane against displacement after perforating, which is likely to occur in handling, packing, transportation, or in use if suspended in the or- I 5 dinary manner. I accomplish this by providing the roll with a suitable stay. In some instances the stay serves also as a suspensory device of simple form, in others as a stay only until the roll is used up, and again as a stay until the roll is to be suspended, being then removed and another, by which the roll is to be attached to a fixture, substituted.
In the drawings are shown several rolls containing perforation s or incisions made through the roll of paper in the same vertical plane and containing means by which the paper can be suspended against a wall or other vertical surface, and as one sheet is severed the end of the unsevered sheets will be in position to be again caught hold of in order to sever another sheet. In many instances the free end of the roll will drop down, as shown. Thus but one sheet at a time is taken from the roll.
By means of my improvements the convolutions of the roll will be kept constantly in the same position relatively to the line of per forations, so that the next sheet, after a sheet has been withdrawn therefrom, will be in position to be readily grasped. Should the roll not have some device connected therewith so that the lines of perforations cannot shift, the roll when suspended will soon cease to act in the above-mentioned manner, and this displacement is especially liable to occur previous to suspension, rendering it difficult, if not impossible, to insert the suspensory link. I insure the result desired by provid ing the roll, perforated as described, with a stay which will keep in a fixed position all of the lines of perforations from the time they are made until the roll is exhausted. Sundry forms of stay adapted to this purpose are shown in the drawings and hereinafter described.
In the drawings, Figures 1, 2, and 3 are views of a roll in which the lines of perforations are kept in a fixed position by means of stays consisting of tapes passed down through one or more sets of the perforations or incisions. In Figs. 4 and 5 these perforations are shown secured in a fixed relation by means of a stay in the form of a nail or wire passed down through one set of such perforations.-
In Fig. 6 the series of perforations is shown fixed by means of stays made of a strip of cloth or paper glued to the edges of the perforations at the end of the roll. A little glue or other adhesive material inserted at one point between each sheet would also accomplish the same object. In Figs. 7 and 8 there is shown a separate suspending-stay, which may be passed down through the center set of in cisions, or down through two sets, if more than two are used, the inner ends being bent to engage the inner part of the roll. In the latter case a rod is passed through the eyes of the suspending devices. (See Fig. 11.) In Figs. 9 and 10 are shown stays in the form of spring bails or hooks having flaring inner ends spread apart inside the roll, and having an eye at the top, the spring ends to be passed down through the perforations or incisions. In Fig. 12 is shown, a top view of the roll without any device passed down through the perforations, but having mucilage lightly applied at any one point between its sheets or at the end of the roll. Various other methods of retaining these series of perforations could be used to the same end as in the examples I have above given.
I claim 1. A toilet or wrapping paper roll having all of its lines of perforations or incisions in the same plane and provided with a stay applied thereto, substantially as described, to keep the perforations in said plane.
2. A toilet or wrapping paper roll having all of its lines of perforations or incisions in the same plane and provided with a stay passed through said perforations or incisions and securedtherein,substantially as set forth.
A toilet or wrapping paper roll having all of its lines of perforations or incisions in the same plane, combined with a stay passed through said perforations 0r incisions and secured therein, the outer end of said stay having a hook or eye by which the roll may be suspended, substantially as described.
4. A toilet or Wrapping paper roll having all of its lines of perforations or incisions in the same plane, combined with a stay passed through said perforations or incisions and having its inner end engaging the inner part of the roll, substantially as set forth.
5. A toilet or wrapping paper roll having all of its lines of perforations or incisions in the same plane, in combination With a springbail passed through the perforations or incisions and having its flaring inner ends spread apart to engage the inner part of the roll, substantially as described.
