$PECIFIGATION forming part of Letters Patent NO. 692,166, dated January 28, 1902. Application filed geptember 21, 1901 SerislNo. 76,097. (No model.)
To ctZZ whom it mctyconccrn:
Be it known that I, J AKOB SOHAFFER, a citi-.
zen of the United States, residing at Manhattan borough, NewYork city, in the county of New York, State of New York, have invented new and useful Improvements-in Medicine- Garriers, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a support or carrier by which medicines or remedies, with their accompaniment, such as time and directions, can be placed in alinementto avoid the liability of error, as set forth in the following specification and claims and illustrated in the annexed drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective View of the carrier. Fig. 2 is a sectional side elevation of Fig. 1.
In the drawings is shown a lid or support a, provided with a remedy or medicine bottle b and an erasive tablet c and time-indicator d, relating to such remedy and placed in alinement therewith. Several such rows are shown; but the explanation of one will ex= plain the others. An attachment or hook e on the lid or support serves for the attachment of a watch or timepiece f. The timeindicator consists of a dial-face d, provided with settable hands g, so that these hands can be made to successivelyindicate the time or hour when the respective remedy is to be used. Such time-indicator with tablet being in line with the remedy, confusion or mistake is guarded against. The lid is provided with or supported by a suitable base portion or foot. Inthe drawings the lid and base portions h are shown hinged to one another at 1;. The base portion being provided with suitable seats or recesses for the remedies or bottles, the latter can be held securely in position and in line with their respective directions. Suitable clamps or spring-arms 7.0 will form seats for holding the bottles firmly in position. The base portion h is of box form, it having one or more pivoted catches, as h, to engage the lid a, so as to hold the latterina position perpendicular to said boxlike body portion. When the bottles I) are taken from the seats is, they can be laid in the said body portion,and the timepiece f can be unhooked and likewise disposed of, after which the catches h can be disengaged from the lid and the latter swung down upon the body portion, thereby closing the same, so that the carrier can be stored away without occupying too much space.
The tablets 0 being erasive, the directions written or marked thereon can be altered as required, and as a remedy has been used at its indicated time the respective hands g can be setto indicate the next succeeding period .when such particular remedy or medicinebottle is to be used.
The device might be provided with a suitable alarmor mechanism which being set to automatically indicate a certain hour will thus call attention to the remedy to be ap* plied or used at such hour.
What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
1. Alid and abase portion hinged to one another, said base portion having seats for remedy or medicine bottles and said lid having an erasive tabletand atime-indicating dial with settable hands all placed in alinement with the remedy substantially as described.
2. A box-like body portion and a lid hinged thereto, one of said parts having a catch to engage the other for upholding the lid, and the body portion having means for the detachable reception of a bottle or other receptacle and the lid having time indicating means.
3. A box-like body portion, a lid hinged thereto, a catch on the body portion to engage the lid for upholding the same, a row of seats in said body portion for detachably securing bottles or other receptacles, and a row of time-indicating devices on the lid correspondiug in number with the seats.
4. A box-like body portion, a lid hinged thereto, a catch on the body portion to engage the lid for upholding the same, a row of seats in said body portion for detachably securing bottles or other receptacles, a row of time-indicating devices on the lid corresponding in number with the seats, erasive substance on the lid and means upon said lid for detachably sustaining a timepiece.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
