IMPnovE-MEN-r'm BAG-FSTENsRs Specification forming part of Letters Patent )10.188,673, dated March 20, 1877 reissue No. 7,735, dated l J une 12,1877 application filed May 26, 1877.
'accompanying drawing, forming part .of this specification, in which- Figure 1 is a. top perspective of the upper part of a bag with a single tiap or apron. Fig. 2 is a section of lthe saine taken transversely to the flap.' Fig. 3 is ultop perspective view of the upper part -of a. bag with the two ups or aprons. Fig. `4 is a side view of the same with the bag closed and one of its strings tied and the other loose. Fig. 5 is a sectional view of the upper part of s.v bag having the two flaps, the section being taken transversely .to the aps.
The object of this invention is to improve `the construction of the bug t'or which Letters Patent N e. 17 7,749 were granted May 23, 1876, in such u way that its contents may be discharged readily and quickly, and which,
when tied, will prevent any leakage et' its contents.
The invention will first be described in connection with the drawing, and then pointed out in the claim.
Referring to the drawing, `A represents the body ofthe bag, in the mouth ot' which, at a little distance from the edgesand beneaththe hema b,nie permanently sewed the inneredges of one or two flaps or aprons, B. When two suclrtiaps are employed, they are sewed upon f opposite sides yofthe bag, and are entirely separate from each other.
. When the bag with one flap is filled, the dup is pressed loosely into the mouth of the bag and tucked down close to the opposite side ot the bag, asin Fig. 2; but when bag with two flaps has' been lled, the outer edges of the two flaps B arepbrought together, and the said iiaps'are rolled together withinthe mouth of the bag, us shown in Fig. 5; or the said tnpsfmay be pressed loosely into the mouth of the bag, if desired. The lnouth ot' the bag` is then drawn together over the tiap orgrilaps B,`by the cords or strings C, whose ends are y secured to the edges of the nionthot' the bag A upon the opposite sides ot', and/at a little distance from, its center. 'lhe strings C are then passed over the mouth ot' the bag, in
through its other side, along the edge, and out,l
at alittle distance from the ends ot'said edges.
' The strings U should have knots fol-ined up on their outer ends, to prevent them from being drawn' in. After thestrings() have been drawn tight over the iiap 4or taps B, theirl ends are passed around the corners of the bag# and tied, so as to secure them, and, at 'the same time, form projections a' for convenience in handling the bags. l v- With this construction, by loosening the strings C, the bag maybe emptied with as niuch'facility as it' there were noiiaps attached to its mouth, the said flaps ot'ering no obstruction -to the outflow of the contents of the bags. 1 am aware that it is not new to use on one side of a bag an intnrned tlap secured by a. a double hook; but
What I claim is- A grain-bag provided with apcrtnred hem a b, folding apron B, and running cords C, the apron being fastened on the inside near inner edge of hem, while the cord runs yparallel to hem, as shown and described, to allow the bag to be fastened quickly without sewing, and opened without cutting.
