DESIGN FOR TORCHES.

- SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 11,616, dated January 27, 1880.

Application filed December 27, 1879. Term of patent 3% years.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, J. MCGREGOR ADAMS, of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have originated a certain new Design for Torches, which is fully described in the following specification, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, making a part thereof, in which- Figure 1 represents a side elevation of a torch embodying my new design; and Fig. 2, a plan section of the same, taken on the line x .r, Fig. 1.

My invention relates to a design for torches intended for use in torchlight processions, especially of political organizations, and for other similar purposes wherever applicable.

The invention consists in a torch representing in configuration and appearance a ballotbox of the style usually known as the globe ballot-box.

In the drawings, A represents the frame of the torch, which is compostd of upper and lower rectangular plates at, joined at or near their corners by posts a, the whole constitutin g a rectangular skeleton-frame similar to the frame of a globe ballot-box. Within this skeleton-frame the flask or oil-receptacle B of the torch is placed. This flask is in the form of a globe, and may be made of glass or any other suitable material, and represents the glassglobe ballot-depository in a globe ballot-box.

The wick-tube O rises from the upper portion of the globe B, and projects above the upper plate a, and occupies the relative position of the opening in the globe ballot-box through which ballots are introduced into the depository. Thus completed, the torch substantially represents in configuration and external appearance a globe ballot-box.

Upon the sides of the globe-flask may be placed inscriptions appropriate to the special use to which the torch is applied. An illustration is shown in Fig. l of the drawings; but these inscriptions, ornamental or otherwise, are not an essential feature of the design.

The torch is mounted in the fork D of the handle by a pivotal connection in the usual way.

Having thus described the characteristic features of my new design for torches, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

The design for torches, as herein shown and described. v
