RICHARD M. WILLIS, OF NEW YORK, AND ALONZO A. DU MOND,'OF ROCH- ESTER, NEVV YORK; SAID DU MOND ASSIGNOR TO SAID WILLIS.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 2, 1906.

Application filed September 30, 1905. Serial No. 280,835.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, RICHARD M. WILLIS, residing at New York city, county of New York, and ALONZO A. DU MoND, residing at Rochester, county of Monroe, State of New York, citizens of the United States, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Dispensin Bottles or Jars; and we do hereby declare t e followin to be a full, clear,

and exact description 0 the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

Our invention relates to improvements in dispensing bottles or jars.

The object of our invention is to provide a bottle or jar which will prevent adulteration and germ contamination or substitution of one material for another in the same package, since the receptacle must be broken in order to get at the contents thereof, and which at the same time will be simple and inexpensive.

With these objects in view our invention consists in the construction and combinations of parts, as hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a bottle constructed in accordance with our invention. Fig. 2 is a cross-section thereof. Fi 3 is a side elevation showing the bottle 0 a diflerent shape. Fig. 4 is a perspective view of a modified form.

I The main idea of the invention is to provide a bottle or jar which must be broken in order to get at the contents thereof and which is adapted to contain a specific quantity of material, such as a measured quantity of liquid.

Referring to Figs. 1 and 2, a represents a bottle provided at its top and bottom with a breakable closure. The liquid or other material is placed in the bottle, and the ends are then hermetically sealed with the same material of which the bottle is constructed, and both ends must be broken off in order that the contents may be discharged. The lower part of the body is provided With the usual recess 6, in which is located a breakable closure a, which is weakened at or near the point where it joins the body of the bottle by a depression or a file-scratch or in any other suitble Way. The top of the bottle is provided with a similar closure, one form of which is shown in Fig. 2, consisting of a solid portion d, which may be grasped in the fingers, and a weakened portion 6, as described above. To getfat the contents of the bottle, both of these closures must be broken off, as the opening at either end is so small that the liquid, if it is liquid that the bottle contains, will not flow out unless an air-inlet is provided. The bottle may have blown into it or etched into it the name of the contents, the name of the maker, his address, if desired, and the quantity contained therein. In Fig. 3 is shown a similar bottle, but of a different shape.

In Fig. 4 is shown another form of the invention, which is made substantially in accordance with the main principle thereof, which might be a little cheaper to manufacture or more desirable for decorative purposes.

While we have described our invention as applicable to liquids, it is by no means restricted to such uses, as it is capable of general application. Preserves, for instance,

mi ht be put up in such bottles or jars, chemica s might be sold therein, and, in fact, we

' do not limit ourselves in any way to the particular materials contained in the bottle or jar. Furthermore, the bottles or jars may be made of any desired form or size, and we do not restrict ourselves in the slightest degree in this particular. They may be made of any desired materialsuch as glass, metal, or hard rubberbut for ordinary purposes We find, glass preferable. In case of chemicals the glass may be colored, if desired, to protect the contents from deterioration.

The advanta es of our invention are obvious. In the first place an antiseptic package is provided absolutely sealed from the air. This prevents germ contamination and deterioration on account of exposure to the air. The substitution of other materials from those indicated by the labels on the glass would be prevented. A measured quantity of liquids could be contained in each receptacle.

Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

- 1. A hermetically-sealed bottle or jar, provided at each end with a narrow dischargeaperture ordinarily closed by a breakable closure, substantially as described.

2. A hermetically-sealed bottle or jar made which can be easily broken ofl, substantially of a sin le piece of glass and provided with as described.

breakab e ends and weakened portions near In testimony whereof We afiEiX our signasaid ends, discharge apertures being left tures in presence of two witnesses. 5 when said grids are broken off, substantially RICHARD M WILLIS as descri e i 3. A bottle or jar with its top hermetically ALONZO DU MOND' sealed and provided with a weakened por- Witnesses: tion and with a sealed portion, and with the A. L. HOUGHJ 10 bottom provided with a projecting portion G. W. HOLMES.
