CLARENCE LILE, OF GRANITE CITY, ILLINOIS.

CHEWING-GUM PACKAGE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed May 1, 1914. Serial No. 835,689.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, CLARENCE LILE, citizen of the United States,

in the county of Madison and State residing at Granite City, of Illinois, have invented certain new anduseful Improvements in Chewing- Gum Packages, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, forming a. part hereof.

My invention has relation to improveinents in chewing-gum packages; and it consists in the novel construction of package more fully set forth in the specification and pointed out in the claims.

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective of a chewing-gum package to which my invention is applied: Fig. 2 is a perspective of the package with one end open; Fig. 3 is a transverse longitudinal middle section of the wrapper, the sticks of gum being left in elevation, the ends of the package being shown closed; Fig. 4 is a similar section showing the starting strip partly pulled out and the gum sticks partially withdrawn; and Fig. 5 is a cross-section on the line 55 of" Fig. 3, the chewing-gum sticks being shown in end view.

The present invention though shown specifically applied. to chewing-gum packages, is not restricted thereto, and may be used in connection with any wrapper in which of any com are packed individual sticks modity, such as candy, cakes, confections, and the like.

The object of the invention is to provide for a ready seizure and withdrawal of the contents of the package, once the sealed end of the wrapper has been broken. The advantages of the invention will be fully apparent from a detailed description thereof, which is as follows:

Referring to the drawings, a, a, represent a series of-sticks of chewing-gum with their individual wrappers, the same being packed side by side in the conventional wrapper 1, the ends of which are formed into folds h sealed against the ends of the sticks as well understood in the art. The free longitudinal edges of this wrapper are overlapped and pasted together, thus forming a lapped seam e as is-common in this class of wrappers. About the wrapper 1 is wrapped an outer wrapper 2 usually carrying reading and advertising matter indicating the brand or-flavor of the gum contained in the packtween the several sticks.

age. The foregoing features are well known and form no part of my improvement.

In the present embodiment of my inven tion I insert between the last gum stick of the series (on the side opposite the seam e) and the adjacent wall of the wrapper l, a card-board or equivalent strip 3, the ends of the strip being folded so as to form flaps 3 3 which are brought against the ends of the sticks a, and between said ends and the sealed folds h of the wrapper (Fig. 3). The free edge of the flap 3 is easily detected by the thumb nail, which being inserted against the wrapper 1, immediately beneath the flap 3' (Fig. 1) can readily break through. the Wrapper and lift the flap 3' as shown in Fig. 2. The flap 3' does not adhereto the sealed folds l1. and can be readily seized (once the package is broken open) and pulled outwardl y.

It is obvious that there is more or less fric-,

Patented Mar. 23', 1915.

tion between the strip 3 and its adjacent stick a, as well as more or less friction bev here is also considerable friction between the flap 3 at the end not broken into; and when a draft is. exerted upon the unfolded or exposed flap 3 (Fig. 4) the friction between the strip 3 and the sticks a, and between the ends of the sticks a and the flap 3 left undisturbed, will drag the sticks a into a the concealed flap 3 (the bottom one in Fig. 4) tending to lift the sticks out of the wrapper 1. The conjoint 'action of the friction between the several parts as described will thus dispose the sticks in such manner ;that the stick a next to the strip 3 may be singled out and seized between the thumb and forefinger and abstracted without disturbing the remaining sticks. 'After' one stick a is removed, this leaves the remaining sticks loose in their package after which their successive removal becomes an easy matter." With the removal of the first stick in chewing gum packages, is'to be considered step-like formation,

the starting-strip maybe applied. The ob jectof placing the strip '3 opposite the seam -said, the breaking ,d wal of said member, fo t e. is to prevent said strip from adhering to the seam,the lappedportions whereof are cemented by suitable adhesive to which'the' strip might accidentally adhere. The flap 3' orits equivalent, possesses the additional advantage in that it serves to sever or shear the folded terminal of the wrapper 1 or that represented by the folds the wrapper, thereby instantly exposing the ends of the sticks 11.. To accomplishv this however, the flap must ractically be coextensive with the termina areal dimension of 4 the package. I

. Havin'g described my invention, what I claim is 2-- a 1. In combination with a package comprising an outer sealed wrapper and an inner series of articles engaging one another, a member interposed between a terminal article of the series and the adjacent said member having .sealed portion of the wrapper and between "said-sealed portion and the articles aforeof the wrapper at the seal seizing of the end of the permitting the and the subsequent: withnieinbt'zr aforesaid h from. the body of contents of the package in presence o for the-purpose set 7 2. In combination with a package com.- prising an outer sealed wrapper an an inner series of articles packed side by side and having their terminals covered by the sealed ends of the wrapper, a strip interposed between a terminal member of the series of articles and the wall of the wrapper an terminating inflaps folded against the ends of the articles and confined between said ends and the sealed terminals of the wrapper and maintained in close contact with said terminals, whereby upon the breaking of the wrapper one of the flaps a draft exerted on said strip to ticles out of the wrapper.

Y 3. In a package of the character described and provided with a wrapper sealed at one end,a loose member in the wrapper 'confin wholly within the wrapper in close contact between the sealed end, aforesaid and the may be seized an start the arclose to the wrapper r may serve to member being disposed walls whereby the me shearthe wrapper with the breaking of the wrapper at a point beneath said member.
