srnozncarxolv forming part 0f Letters Patent No. 726,037, dated A rn-ai, 1903. Application filed June 22, 1901. Renewed'Mareh 20. 1903. Serial No. 148.795. (No model-) To all whmn it may concern:
Be it known that I, HENRY FERRE, pharmacist, a citizen of the Republic of- France, and a resident of Paris, France, have invented an Improved Tubular-Inhaler, of which-the'followingis a specification, this invention having been patented in France November 28, 1900, No. 305,802; in England March 9,1901, No. 5,050; in British India April 20, 1901, No. 170, and in Germany,,April l, 1901, (not delivered.)
Certain vapors resulting from the combina tion of chemical elements area't times too unstable to enable them to 'be kept, whileat others there is an advantage in utilizing them at the very moment'of their gex'leration, their action havi g at such moment a greater efiicacyas is he case, for instance, with certain reactions which are produced when the vapor is employed in the nascent state and, do not take place under other conditions. Now my invention relates to an appliance whereby this generation of nascent vapor can be very readily eifected.
It consists in the combination of two or more air-tight and impermeable receptacles, so disposed as to constitute a single article or appliance, through which a current of air is caused to pass either by suction or by forcing, and each of these receptacles contains the ele-- ments necessary for the generation by the passage of the current of air of a vapor, the
combinationof which forms on its exit the vapor which it is desired to utilize. purpose the v impermeable receptacles are closed at their ends by -a plug provided with openings, those at the outer end serving for the entry of air and those at the inner end for the outlet of the va ior producedbythe assa c'of the air over t io elements or materials contained in such receptacles. These vapors on issuingpass into a single chamber, wherein they combine to give a compound product suitable for immediate use either by continuing the suction or the forcing necessary to produce the passage of the air.
The annexed (imwiugs show one applica- Lion of my invention constituting at once an inhaling appliance and a toy.
Figure 1 is a longitudinal section, and Fig. 2 a transverse section, of the a pliance fitted into a holder.
For this As shown, the device consists of two impermeable receptacles'a 0, each formed of a sheet of paper or a piece of textile material I or of gold-beaters skin h, to which is gummed porous material or body saturated with an aqueous solution of the bodies which'it is desired tobring into existence. These receptacles are then firmlyconnected together-say by two rings or sleeves .d'into which are inserted the closing plugs or stoppers e, having as-many orifices f'as there are distinct receptacles a c. These orifices, which are capable of being closed or opened, allow the production, by suction or by forcing, of a. current of air, which acting on the cotton or the saturated porous material produces for each receptacle a'distinct vapor, which on combining in the chamber g, formed in the inner end of thetube, produces the desired vapor, which can be immediately inhaled through the holder 1 The appliance thus constituted may be covered witha sheet of paper or other suitable material 5, so as to give it the appearance of a cigar. By saturating the cotton or the porous body in one of the receptacles, say, with weak hydrochloric acid and the cotton in the other receptacle with an aqueous solution of carbonate of ammonia to which polyatomic alcohol is added, 'and inhaling, two vapors are produced which combine and form ammonia hydroehloratc, which is disengaged or evolved in the form of an absolutely neutral and inoffensive white. vapor, (provided the proportions have been properly elfccteih) thus giving a perfect imitation oi" smoke. in this way 1 constitute a tubular inhaler capable ol" forming a toy or a surprise and being at the sametime capable of employment with any combinations of dcsired materials, and according to these combinations capable of use as an inhaler for various purposes.
Having now particularly described and ascertained thenature of my said invention and in what manner the same is to be performed, I declare that what I claim is- 1. 'A tubular inhaler comprising two airtight impermeable receptacles each independent of the other and arranged side by side, absorbent material in each receptacle, rings at the ends of the receptacles to hold them together, a covering over the said receptacles and over one of the rings with one 'en d extended to form a chamber beyond the end of the receptacles, apertured plugs within said rings at the ends'of the receptacles and a mouthpiece over the extended end of said covering and embracing said chamber, all substantially as shown and described.
2. An inhaler comprising .a plurality of elongated receptacles for holding chemical agents, each of which is air-tight and imper-,
meable located in juxtaposition to eachother, closures for the ends of saidreceptacles, said closures having perforations to admit of the passage of an air-current therethrough, and a cap at one end of said receptacles and forming "a chamber for the admixture of the separate gases emanating from the independent receptacles by independent passages, as set forth.
In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two witnesses.
. HENRY FERRE.
