new article of manufacture, a catamenial.

bandage of a form which will conform to and afford complete protection to the body of` the nser and retentive capacity for the menstrual dis charge.

In thek accompanying drawings, have illustrated aneinbodiment of my invention in which,

Figure l. is a perspective View of a catainenial bandage made in accordance there with. Fig'. :2 is a longitudinal sectional View, and Fig. 3 is a. cross-sectional'view thereof taken on line awo of Fig. 2.

In carrying my invention into practice,

use a covering or envelop of soft absorbent fabric e preferably cotton Woven in tube form with a filling of cotton b or other suitable absorbent material distributed through out an' intermediate portion of the tube covering. I then stitclitbe ends of the filling and the covering together as at l forining a complete closure for the filling and insurfing its retention in an evenly distributed condition. When formed in. this manner, coveringuis provided with free ends i? of superimposed layers of sufficient length to be attached to the apparel of the user by any suitable means. i then take the bandage and impart to it its ping tbe same into individual packages suitable for distribution through vending machines.

' will proceed to describe the method employed. for wrapping ,and packing the bandage into its iinal commercial form 'which imparte to it the desired shape` which it astrai portion.

tion caused by tbe iilling is reached, suitable guide plates or mechanism is brought into engagement with the edges 5 and 6 as the bandage passes through the 'wrapping machine. The material along these edges is caused to be rolled toward the centervof the bandage and tor be slightly compressed.

This causes the .longitudinali edges 7 and 8 -running lengthwise of the bandage to become thickened, so that the central portion 9 will be somewhat depressed and lowered yso as to form a tronglrlilre structure as illustrated. This operation also narrows or reduces the width of the bandage when it is delivered in its rolled form ready for Wren ping.

, The bandage is caused to retain its shape rowing; to the'fact that it is formed and package form and; re=

tightly wound into tained under compression, so that when removed from the package, it assumesy the trough-like formation shown more clearly in Fig. 2. A

Having thus described my invention what l claim as new herein and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

l. As a new article of manufacture, a substantially rectangular catalneniai bandage c'on'iprising a woven tube of absorbent fabric with a filling of trough-like formation. distributed through'- out an intermediate portion thereof, said material being stitched at its endsv to the fabric. y

2. As a. new article of manufacture, a substantially rectangular catainenial bandage comprising superimposedflayers oi absorbent fabric with a filling of absorbent material distributed throughout am intermediate` portion thereof, said material being in the form of a. trough with its edges in lengthn/isenirection relatively thicker than its central portion,

As a. new article of mitamenial fbandage comprising snperi1nposed layers ci absorbenty `tabrio with a. filling body of absorbent material pocleted therein and stitched at its ends thereto, the

n Uli edges of said absorbent material 1n length- 'wise direction beine tliicker than the inter mediate center portion.

4. As a. new article of `mannfacture, a catamenial bandage comprisingsuperimposed layers ot absorbent fabric with a iilling body'of absorbent material pocketed manufacture, a

absorbent material of" therein and stitched at its ends thereto, said body of-ahsorbent' material being tapered toward its ends with its edges in lengthwise directionA thicker than the intermediate A5 center portion so as to form a trough ex- .tending .substantially lengthwise between l thickened portions thereof.
