  1. The ornamental design for a bottle, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of the bottle of our new design, the broken line representation is for illustrative purposes only and does not constitute a part of the design;

FIG. 2 is a front elevational view thereof; the rear elevation being a mirror image;

FIG. 3 is a side elevational view thereof, the opposite side elevation being a mirror image;

FIG. 4 is a top plan view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a bottom plan view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a top, front and left side perspective view of a second embodiment of the bottle; and,

FIG. 7 is a rear perspective view of the second embodiment in the inverted position with a different unclaimed closure shown in broken lines.

The second embodiment differs from the first embodiment only in the lack of the sloped shoulder.

The broken lines in the drawings are for illustrative purposes only and do not form part of the claimed design.
