"PATENTED MAR. 13; 1906.





To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM G. BELL, of

- Newton, in the county of Middlesex and for mmcemeat, sausage-meat, and other tion on line 2 2 of Fig. 1.

' the condition shown in Fig.4.

moist articles" of food, the package comprising an outer case or bag of textile fabric and a moisture-proof lining which is adapted to stiffen and support the bag, so that it maybe conveniently filled, and also to. confine the moisture in the filling and prevent it from soaking the cloth bag.

The invention has for its object to provide at the minimum expense a strong and durable package answering all the requirements of an article for the purpose specified.

The invention consists in the improvements which I will now proceed to describe and claim.

Of the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 represents a perspective view of a bag embodying myinvention. Fig. .2 represents Figs. 3 and 4 represent perspective views showing different stages of the operation of making the bag. Fig. 5 represents a bottom view of the bag in Fig; 6 represents an enlarged section on line 6 6 of Fig. 5.

The same reference characters-indicate the same parts in all the figures.

In carrying out my invention I take a rec tangular sheet a of cotton cloth or other suitable textile fabric-and unite two of the edges of the same by a line of stitches, thus forming a longitudinal seam Z), the sheet being thus convertedinto a tube, as shown in Fig. 3. I

then closethe end of the tube that is to form the bottom of the bag by a transverse seam c. The bag is then turned so that the free edges of the sheet are within the bag, as shownin Fig. 4. The corner portions of the bag at the ends of the transverse seam c are then formed into plaits d d,which are closed and made permanent by seams e e, uniting the sides of the plaits at the bases thereof, the plaits being angular or Vshaped and located Within the bag. This operation flattens the bottom portion of the bag, or, in other words,

provides the bag with an approximately flat bottom which is integral with the body of the bag, the body and bottom being in one piece.

The bottom thus formed is adapted to conform accurately to a bottom-forming piece f,

which is a relatively stifi disk of cardboard or other suitable material inserted in the bag and pressed closely against the bottom thereof, thus im arting a well defined circular form'to the ottom, as shown in Fig. 1.

- material, such as parafiined or waxed paper, the edges of said sheet being brought together to form a tube, one edge of the sheet overlapping the other and being adapted to ed by the filling and pressed closely against the bag.

a disk of similar waterproof material superimposed on the bottom-forming piece f, the lower end of the lining-sheet being turned inwardly', as shown at g Fig. 2, and interposed between the bottom-forming piece f and the bottom-lining piece It.

so that it can stand alone with its mouth and body open for the reception of the filling, the lining preventing the escape of moisture from the filling.

The described construction of the bag, providing a body and a flat bottom in one piece, reduces to the minimum thecost or labor and material.

I claim- A bag composed of a body, mately fiat bottom formed in asingle piece, a bottom forming piece supported by the said bottom, and a moisture-proof lining comsignature in presence of two witnesses.
