.PAPER TOWEL.

Application led ctober 28, 1 914. Serial No. 869,011.

To all 'whom t may concern.'

Be itknown that I, FRANK G'. CRANE, a

` l citizen of vthe United States, residing at by narrow 'depressions of Vifest Collingswood, in .the county of Camden, State of NewZ Jersey, have inventedl a towel in which the body portion thereof isl composed of soft absorbent paper intersected greatly compressed yand sized paper.

The use of this towel is somewhat limited owing to the fact that the material absorbed by the towel'is liable to stain or discolor the @material on which it is laid, and it is the purpose of my present invention'to devise a paper towel which has one or more absorbent surfaces and a water-proof or non-ab- Asorbent'surface', so that the liquid absorbed by the towel cannot pass'to the undersurface thereof -to stain, discolor-or destroy the material over which it has been placed.

With the above in view my present invention consists of. a novel paper towel-one or more surfacesof which are absorbent and cooperate with a non-absorbent portion.

It further consists of other`novel features of construction, all as will be hereinafter fully set forth.

' For the purpose of illustratingmy invention, I have shown -in the accompanying drawing those formsthereof which are at present preferred by me, since the same will lgive in practice satisfactory and reliable results, although it is Ato be understood that the l various instrumentalities of which my invention consists can be variously arranged and'v organized and that my invention is not lim'- ited to the precise arrangement and organization of vthese instrumentalities as herein shown and described. f

Figure 1 represents a plan view o fa paper towel embodying my invention. Fig. 2 represents a sectional viewathereof. Fig. 3 rep' `resents a sectional view of another embodiment of my invention wherein the outer portions of the towel are of absorbent material. Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts in the figures.

. Referring to the drawings, -referring first 1 to Figs.'1 and 2, 1 designates. theabsorbent layer of the towel which is connected with Patented Oct. 17, 1916. g

the water-proof layer or backing 2. 'TheV absorbent layer of the towel consistsy of the portions 3 which are of soft, absorbent paper. `The towel is intersected by a series of lines 4 of condensed material running throughout the towel and increasing the strength thereof. These intersecting lines of secured to the absorbent sheet of paper in any desired manner but preferably by the, sizing ,during the process of making the towel. The sizing only binds on thek depressed or condensed lines at which points only thehvo'sheets are secured together.

In theprocess of making the towel the stock will pass through rolls one ofi said rolls having small pockets or depressions in which the pulp can lie and narrow raised lines between the'pockets to compress andV condense the material Where the strengthem ing. lines are to be formed between lthe portions intended to'project and be absorbent. The other'roll has a smooth surface and-it will be understood that the absorbent layer 1 andthe water-proof layer 2 are run between the rolls together so that during such operation the condensed line 4 will be formed and the sizing will cause the absorbent paper to adhere to thewater-proof paper,'so that the resultant product has the appearance 'of a single4 sheet of paper. It

)is also within the scope of my invention tov .tion 7 and during the rollingoperation thev narrow depressions 8 and 9, respectively, are greatly compressed 4 and sized paper is vcondensed material may runin any desired formed and the diHerent sheets are secured together by the sizing or other adhesive material, if desired.

While I have described my invention` as consisting of a paper towel this` term is not lto be construed as limiting the same to a towel used for wiping or drying purposes, slnce my invention is deslgned to be employed as a substitute for absorbent and water-proof material and can be used for medical purposes and dentistry andother arts and can be used as a substitutefor towels, napkins, table-cloths,'doilies and otherV purposes too numerous to mention.

Owing tothe low cost of manufacture my novel towel may-be placed on the market at a lower cost thanthe cost of laundrying towels made of linen or cotton or similar ma-.

terial. After the paper towels have been used they may be burned or otherwise disposed of.

t ,l It will be seen that the depressions 4 preferably do not extend into the water-proof' portion 2s'0 that the outer face of the latter forms a substantially plainsurface. It will -also be seen that the absorbent surface is formed in such a manner that the absorption is localized and a multiplicity of absorbent.` portions are formed on the face of the towel.

` It will now be apparent that l have devised a novel and useful paper towel which Iembodies the features of advantage 'enumerated as desirable in the statement of the invention andthe above descrlption, andwhile I have,\in the present instance shown and describedthe preferred embodiments thereof which will give in practicesatisfactory andreliable results, it is to be understood that the 'same are susceptible of modiijcation in various particulars without depart-4 ingfrom the spirit or scope of the invention or sacrificing any of its advantages.'

- Having thus described my invention, vwhat I claim as new and desire to vsecure by Letters Patent, is zr- 1. Adevice of the-character stated, comprisinga body of soft absorbent paper intersected by `depressions of greatly com-` pressed and sized paper, and a water-proof backing secured to said .body portion onlynon-absorbei'it paper secured to ySaid sheet of absorbent paper only atthe narrow depressions to form a unitary structure there-` with'.

3. A` device of the character stated, com? prising a sheet of soft absorbent paper intersected by narrow depressions of greatly com'- pressed and sized paper, and a sheet of water-proof paper secured to said sheet of absorbent paper only at the narrow depressions to form a unitary structure therewith.

uol

4. A device ofthe character stated, hav l ing its outer portions consisting of soft absorbent paper, intersected by depressions of sheet of waterproof paper intermediate said portions. A'

5. A device of the character stated', comprising a sheet of absorbent paper inter- 1 sected by compressed and sized depressions,

and a'sheet lof oiled paper secured to the' sheet of absorbent paper.l

6. A paper sheet composed of two outer layers of absorbent paper and a central layer of non-absorbent material to whichsaid outer layers are afxed so as to be rela- `ively, substantially immovable throughout their'extent.
