UNITED STATES PATENT OEEIcE.
ELISHA MORGAN, OF SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS.
IMPROVED MUCI LAGE-STAND'.
Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 66,868, dated July 16, 1 867.
To all 'whom it may concern:
Be it known thatI, ELIsHA MORGAN, of Springfield, in the county of Hampden and State of .Massachusetts, have invented anew and Improved Mucilage-Stand; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawing, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, making part of this speciication. A
A represents the fountain or'reservoir, connecting, by the neck B, With the Well C. D represents the cap covering the mouth, with brush attached, extending through the mouth `iuto the Well C.
The nature of my invention consists of a reservoir mucilage-stand with supply-fountain, neck,jand Well, in combination lWith a brush.
The object of my invention is, first, to supply the well C with mucilage to any required depth from the fountain A 5 but for ordinary use the depth of mucilage in the Well C would correspond in height to the top of the neck B, and would remain at the same depth till the supply in the fountain A is diminished in depth below the top of the neck B; second, to regulate the depth of mucilage around the .brush from the fountain A, in-
stead of adjusting the brush to the depth of y the mucilage, as in the common bottle; third,
to keep the brush always fed and ready for use by means of its fixed position, when the cap D rests on the mouth of the Well, and the constant supply of mucilage at a given level, thereby avoiding the necessity of adjusting the brush to a varying level of the. mucilage, as in the common bottle.
The mucilage-stand may be made of glass or metal, or of -any suitable material, and of any form or pattern Which embodies .the combination of reservoir, neck, and Well hereinbeforedescribed. If made of glass, and in one piece, it would be more easily kept clean than if made of metal or other material.
What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
A reservoir mucilage-stand having a fountain which connects with and supplies the Well, substantially as herein described, in combination With a brush.
This specication of my invention signed by me this .24th day of May, A. D. 1867.
