Specification of Letters Patent. Patented Ella-11?. 115, 191W Application filed March 12, 1907. Serial No. 361,967.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it-known that I, JEFFREY T. FERREs, a citizen of the United States, residing at Anderson, Madison county, Indiana, have invented a certain new and usefulBoard, of which the following is a specification.

My invention consists in the production,

as a new article of manufacture, of a board two of. such-plies with the result that the:

board thus formed is not only materially strengthened and reinforced but is also made proof against rats, mice and the like so that the board can be put to the same uses as wood in the manufacture of boxes. In the present instance the paper board employed is the well known double-faced corrugated paper board and the wires, in single parallel strands, are interposed between the corrugated paper and one of the facing strips.

In the accompanying drawings Figure 1 is a cross-section of my new board taken on the line 1-1 of'Fi'g. 2; Fig. 2 a plan View of the board with the upper facing strip partly broken away to expose the wires and corrugated paper below; and Fig. 3 an enlarged sectional view of a portion of the board taken at right angles to the section illustrated in Fig. 1.

As above stated I employ, in the production of my new board, a paper board composed of different plies or la ers and in the present instance such paper oard is of the type which is commonly known as doublefaced corrugated paper board and for the sake of a clear and definite description of my invention I will describe the same 'in connection with that type of paper board.

I the usual corrugate shed and which as shown are laid Referring to the embodiment of my invention' as illustrated in Figs. 1, 2 and 3 of the drawings, the paper board employed is a double-faced corru ated board comprising stri A. which is arranged between twoparal el paper strips B and C which are known in the art as facing strips and which in practice are secured to the corrugated strip by pasting or gluing at the crowns of the corrugations. In the production of my new board I interpose be tween one of these facing strips and the corrugated strip a series of wires D which are 0 any suitable size or strength according'to the size and weight of the board dearallel to each, other and at right angles to t e lines of corrugations, In the present instance the wires are shown asinter osed between the'c'orrugated-strip and the acingstrip B laid adjacent either one of said facin strips.

By preference the wires are embe (led in the crowns of the corrugations, leaving the crowns and facing strip in contact. In the operation of pasting or gluing the facing strips to the corrugated strip the wires are t at the same time and in the same way secured both to their adjacent facing strip and the corrugated strip. It will be understood that the wires may be laid the proper distance a art to obtain the requisite strength and to a so prevent rats, mice, etc., from eating their way through the board.

My new board formed as above'described possesses great strength and rigidit and is comparatively light in weight. oreover, such board is proofagainst rats,mice and the like so that the same may be advantageously employed in'the manufacture of shipping and packing boxes and cartons contaimng articles that would be attacked by such vermin.
