NELLIE GIBSON BURKE, OF HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS.

BOTTLE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented March 24, 1908.

Application filed October 23, 1907. Serial No. 398,725.

T 0 all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, NELLIE GIBSON BURKE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Hot Springs, in the county of Garland and State (f Arkansas, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottles, of which the following is a specification.

My invention is a bottle, and consists in the novel construction and arrangement of its parts, as hereinafter set out in this specificatlon and the claims thereunto attached.

It is well known that certain medicines and liquids of various kinds, when they become popular and in demand, are often counterfeited. This is chiefly done by taking a bottle that contained the real article, when emptied, and filling it with an inferior article of substantially the same kind, and selling it under the name, label and in the bottle that contained the real article; to prevent this is the purpose of my invention.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1, is an elevation of a flask. Fig. 2, is a bottom plan view of the flask. Fig. 3, is'a sectional elevation of the flask, filler, stopper and plate. Fig. 4, is a detail sectional view of the neck, cap, filler and stopper of the flask, and a perspective view of the lunger.

Similar numerals refer to similar parts throughout the several views.

As whisky is the article most usually fraudulently imitated, I have, in my drawings, represented a whisky flask, but as my invention is intended to cover all kind of liquids, and goods contained in bottles, my bottle may be of any size or shape, and indeed it may also be used in cases where pills or powders are sold in bottles.

My invention is described as follows In the accompanying drawings, the numeral 1 represents the bottle; 2, represents the neck of the bottle, and 3, represents the cap of the bottle. Between the top end of the neck and cap, is an annular groove 4, which is out nearly into the inner face of the neck, just leaving enough of the wall of the bottle to prevent the cap from breaking off too easily, but deep enough to enable the person who wishes to use the contents of the bottle, to strike off the capwith a slight blow. The neck 2, of the bottle is swollen so that it is larger in its center than at its ends, its top end 5, and bottom end 6, being exactly the same size.

In the center of the bottom 7, of the bottle,

' is a circular perforation 8, and around this perforation, and somewhat larger, is a recess 9, and adapted to fit in the recess 9, is a circular plate 10, having extending from its lower face a nipple 11. Fitting in the neck 2 of the bottle, is a filler 12. This filler is made of cork, rubber or other resilient material, so that it may give and be pressed into the neck of the bottle, and when so pressed in, fills the neck so snugly that it cannot be removed except by considerable force, and consequently it remains in the neck of the bottle until forcibly removed. Fitting in the upper end of said filler, is a stopper 13. This stopper may be composed of cork, rubber or other resilient material. For the purpose of forcing the filler and stopper into the neck of the bottle, I use a plunger 14, consisting of a rod 14 and a head 15. The sto per 13, is tightly secured in the upper end of the filler 12, and then the filler is set on the face of the head 15, stopper up, and it is thrust into the neck of the bottle until its lower end is flush with the lower end of the neck. This has the efliect of forcing the upper end of the stopper against the inner wall of the cap, thus holding said stopper securely in place. The bottle is then turned head down, and filled through the perforation 8. When filled, the plate 10 is set in the recess 9, and while said plate is being held in position by some roper tool grasping the nipple 11, it is sealed in place by melted glass 16. Thus the contents of the bottle is secure. WVhen the bottle is to be opened, a slight tap on the cap 3, will break the cap off at the groove 4, thus leaving the filler projecting Slightly above the head of the neck, and the stopper above the filler. If any small particles of broken glass should remain, they may be easily removed by a brush. Thus there is no danger of particles of glass mixing with the contents of the bottle when oured out. Thus it will be seen that it is impossible to defraud the public by refilling the standard bottles of manufacturers of whiskies, or proprietary medicines.

Although I have specifically described the combination, construction and arrangement of the several parts of my invention I do not confine myself particularly to such specific combination, construction and arrangement, as I claim the right to make such changes and modification therein as may clearly fall within the scope of my invention, and which may be resorted to without departing from the spirit, or sacrificing any of my patentable rights therein.

Having described my invention, what I claim as new and desirc to secure by Letters Patent, is z- 1. A bottle, consisting of a body 1, a neck 2, swollen in its center so as to be larger in its center than at its top end 5, or bottom end 6, a cap 3, extending upwardly from the upper end of said neck, said neck having an annular groove 4, around the top dividing the said neck from said cap, the bottom of the bottle having a circular perforation 8, in the center thereof, and a recess 9, surrounding said perforation, a hollow filler 12, fitting in the neck of said bottle, a stopper fitting in the upper end of said filler, said filler and stopper adapted. to be thrust in said neck by means of a plunger 14, a plate 10, provided with a nipple 11, fitting in said recess, and melted glass 16, sealing said plate in place,

substantially as shown and described and for the purposes set forth.

2. A bottle, consisting of a body 1, a neck 2, swollen in its center, a cap 3, extending from the top of said neck, but being partly divided thereform by an annular groove 4, said bottle having in its bottom a perforation 8, surrounded by a recess 9, a hollow, resilient filler 12, fitting the neck of said bottle, a resilient stopper, fitting in said filler, its upper end adapted to fit against the inner wall of the cap, and a plate 10, fitting and sealed in said recess, substantially as shown and described. and for the purposes set forth.

In testimony whereof I affiX my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
