BOTTLE FoR MEDICINE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Beissued Letters Patent fie. 12,097, dated March 10, 1903. riginal1io. 710,708, dated October 7, 1902- Applicstlon for reissue filed llecembar 17, 1902. Serial No. 135,659.

To all whom if may cortcern:

Be it known that 1, CHARLES W. MCSHAN a, a citizen of the UnitedStates, residing at Zanesville, in the county of M uskinguin, in the State and with which I combine ascale of the full,

0 half, and quarter hours from 12 to 11.45 oclook, together with an indicator to indicate the time of taking the medicine therein contained; and the object of my invention is to provide a practicable, an accurate, and a convenient means of keeping account of the time or times to give one kind or more kinds than one of medicine. I attain this object by the mechanism illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is aperspeotive view of myinvention. Fig. 2 is a horizontal plan view of my invention. Fig." 3 is a perspective view in detail of my time-indicator. Fig:4 is a horizontal plan view of my invention, showing va- 05 riation in indicator. 1

. Similar numerals represent similar parts throughoutthei severai views.

-' 1 is a bottle "provided up one of its moldseamed sides along about the line of the seam where the faces of the molds come in contact with each other with a flat-topped ridge 2, provided on its sides with grooves 33, which are adapted to receive gripping-claws 4 of indicator 5, provided with resilient grippingindex 6, which forms toward its base a thumb and finger hold 7. Onthe top of ridge 2 is located a time-scale of the full, half, and q narter hours from 12 to 11.45 oclock. Grooves 3 are open at one or both of their ends to re- 40 ceive gripping-claws 4, not by springing said claws, over vthe broad top of ridge 2, but by sliding said claws into the open ends of grooves 3. The inner ends of said claws do not butt squarely up against and grip the innermost surfaces of grooves 3 to help support indicator 5 on ridge 2, but said claws enter grooves 8 without gripping ridge 2 until said indicator 5'isslid so far onto ridge 2 that resilient gripping-index 6 grips the top of said -50. vridge '2, thereby drawing said gripping-claws 4 up against the under sides, respectively, of the edges of ridge .2, which are formed by grooves 3 and the top of said ridge 2, thereby causing gripping-claws 4 to grip from beneath the two edges of said ridge and, together with gripping-index 6 above, adj ustably to support out tending to damage said grooves and ridge.

The time-scale can be lnolded in the top of ridge 2. g

The operation of myinvention is as follows, to wit: A dose of the medicine in a particularbottle is given, for example, at 7.45 oclock, to be repeated every three-quarters of an hour.

In this case upon giving the dose indicator 5 is moved up the scale until the edge of index 6 stands at the 8.30 oclock line, thus indicating the next time to repeat the dose.

What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. The combination with a bottle having a time-scale, of an indicator having claws and index, said claws and index being adapted to grip said bottle and said index being adapted to indicate time on said scale, substantially as described.

2. The combination with a bottle having a time-scale, of an indicator having claws and index and thumb and finger hold, said claws and index being adapted to grip said bottle and said index being adapted to indicate time on said scale, substantially as described.

3. The combination with a bottle having a time-scale, of an indicator having claws and index, said claws being located out of the plane passing transverselythrough said index at its point adapted to grip said bottle, thereby adapting said claws to take their position on said bottle in advance of said gripping-point of said index, and not to grip said bottle until said gripping-point of said index time-scale, of an indicator having claws and index, said claws being adapted to bear in said grooves and to grip said ridge, and said index being adapted to indicate time on said 5 scale, substantially as described.

5. The combination with a bottle having a ridge provided with grooves and having a time-scale, of an indicator having claws and index, said claws being adapted to bear in said grooves and to bear up under their upon said ridge, said claws and index being thereby adapted to grip said ridge, and said index being adapted to indicate time on said scale, substantially as described.

6. The combination with a bottle having a time-scale and a grooved ridge, the grooves thereof having open ends, of an indicator having claws adapted to enter said open ends of said grooves and to grip said ridge and said indicator being adapted to indicate time en said scale, substantially as described.

7. The combination with a bottle having a time-scale and a grooved ridge, the grooves hereof having open ends, of an indicator having claws and index, adapted to grip said grooved ridge, said claws being adapted to enter said open ends of said grooves without gripping said ridge, until said index grips flanges, and said index being adapted to bear said ridge,.said index being adapted, to indi- 3:: cats time on said scale, substantially as described. j

-8. The combination with a bottle having a. ridge provided with grooves and having a time-scale, of an indicator havinga bent-up, '35 integrally-formed thumb and finger hold, and having claws and index, said claws being adapted to bear in said grooves and to grip said ridge, and said index being adapted to indicate time on said scale, substantially as 40 described.

9. The combination with a bottle having a time-scale and a' grooved ridge, the grooves thereof having open ends, of an indicator having a thumb and finger hold, and having 45 claws and index adapted to grip said grooved ridge, said claws being adapted to enter-said open ends of said grooves without gripping said ridge until said index grips said ridge, and said index being adapted to indicate time 50 on said scale, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this-specification in the presenceof two subscribing witnesses.

CHARLES W. MCSHANE.
