THOMAS W. MILLER, OF AKRON, OHIO.
. WATER BAG on BOTTLE.
Application filed November 10, 1905. Serial No. 286,763.
To all whom it may concern: 1
Be it known that I, THOMAS W. MILLER, a citlzen of the United States, residing at Akron, in the county of Summit'and State of Ohio, have invented new and useful Improvements in .Water Bags 01 Bottles, of
- which the followin is aspecification.
My invention re ates to water bags or bottles formed of rubber, and has for ts object to provide a seamless bag or bottle of this character embodying certain improvements in the construction of the neck, the funnelsha ed top, a partial closure for the neck,
an the stopper, as will be hereinafter more definitely polnted out and claimed, reference beingihad to the accompanying drawings, in
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the upper ortion. of my improved bag or bottle and its nnel-shaped top, the connecting'means between the two being partially broken away. Fig. 2 is a central vertical sectional view of the same on the line 2 2, Fig. 3.- Fig. 3 is a horizontal sectional view on the line 3 3,
The partial closure 4 for the bag or bottle neck 2 is formed, preferably by molding, of
soft rubber and has formed integral there- .with the flexible flaring funnel-shaped top 5.
Said partial closure in the rocess of manufacture has molded'therein t e metallic thimble 6, interiorly screw threaded and provided with an interior annular shoulder 7 at its base as shown. Said partial closure 4 is alsoformed exteriorly with anannular depresslon 8, adapted toiireceive and retain the ead 3 of the bag or bottle neck.
In assembling the parts the bead 3 of the bag or bottle neck 2 is sprung into the depression 8 i the partial closure 4, and the parts are sec rely cemented together with asuitable se .-curing cement. A strip of friction fabric 9 is then drawn tightl around the parts, as shown, and is preferab ymore firmly eld in place by a wire wrapping 10. To fin-v .ish the article, I then cement around the bag Specification of Letters Patent.

or bottle neck and partial closure and over the friction fabric 9 and wire wrapping 10 a strip of ornamental rubber 11, preferably harmonizing in color with that of the bag or bottle and its funnel. Said strip 11may either be lapped,-as shown-at 12 in Fig. 1, or
it maybe formed in an endless band and sprungand cemented into position. Whlle I prefer to emplogr the wire 'wrapping 10 to retain the parts mly in position, the same is not, essential, as it has been found that the cementing of the parts. and the friction fabric 9 and rubber strip 11 very securel retain the bag or bottle neck and partial c osure 4 together.
, To seal the ba or bottle when filled with hot'water or the ike, I employ a metallic or other stopper 13, having attached thereto at its lower end by means of a screw-14 a rub- 7' ber washer 15, which b its contact with the interior annular shoul er 7 .of thimble. 6 affords an efiective water-tight'closure.
By my improved construction I provide a bag or bottle formed, with the exce tion of the thimble 6, entirely of soft rub er, the
constructionbeing such, owing to the 'fact that both the upper and lower edges of the thimble 6 are flush with the body of the artial closure 4, that a com lete drainage 0 the 8 5 bag 'or bottle is obtaine when 'it is desired to, empty the same, as well as a complete draina e of the funnel 5 during filling.
While I prefer to form the partial closure 4 of. soft rubber, the same may, if desired, be 0 formed of semihard rubber or of soft rubber stiffened infan'y suitable manner-e. g., by usingcottonduck-.the essentialfeatureofthe same bein that it. is formed integral with the Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is a 1. A water bag or bottle embodying a flexible rubber body portion, a rubber partial 010- 100 sure for the neck of the same, a flexible rubber funnel-shaped top formed .integral with said partial closure, and means for perma-' nently uniting said partial closure and bag or bottle neck. v
2. A water bag or bottle embodying a flexible rubber body portion, arubber partial closure for the neck of the same, and an unyielding stopper-receivin thimble permanently located in said partia closure. I 10 3. A water bag or bottle embodying a flexible rubber body portion, a rubber partial closure for the neck of the same, and an unyielding stopper-receiving thimble permanently located in said partial closure and terminating flush with the upper and under sides of said partial closure.
4. Awater bag or bottle embodying a flexible rubber body portion having a contracted neck termination in an annular bead, a rub- .ber partial closure formed with an annular retaining said bead in position, and a finisl1 ing-strip covering said friction fabric.
6. A water bag or bottle embodying a flexible rubber body portion having a contracted neck terminating in an annular bead, a rubber partial closure formed with an annular depression receiving said bead, a flexible rubber funnel formed lntegral' with said partial closure, a stri of friction fabric covering and retaining sai bead in position, a wire wrapping around said friction fabric, and a finis lng-strip covering said friction fabric and wire wrapping.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
