ISAAC EDWARD STINSON AND HERBERT STERLING LYON. OF CARSELAND, ALBERTA.

' I CANADA.

SUGAR CONTAINER.

Application filed April 2e, 1922. Serial No. 556,774.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known'that we, IsAAo EDWARD STIN- SON and HERBERT STERLING LYON, both citizens'of the United States, and residents of the village of Carseland, in the Province of Alberta, Canada, have jointly invented cer tain new and useful Improvements in Sugar Containers, of which the following is the specification. 1

Our invention relates to improvements in sugar containers particularly adaptable for table use and the object of the invention is to provide a container having a spout through which aspoonful of sugar at a time will be automatically discharged through the spout into the tea cup or other receptacle each time the container'is tipped up to carry the spout towards an inverted position, a container which is sanitarytaking the place. of the ordinary sugar bowl into which an unclean spoon is often dipped particularly when used in restaurants and other public eating places and which at the same time will prevent contamination of the sugar with dust, dirt or flies and it consists essentially of the arrangement and construction of parts as hereinafter more particularly explained.

Fig. 1 is a sectional view through our sugar container shown in the norgnal position.

Fig. 2 is a. similar view to Fig. 1 showing the container in the pouring position.

' Fig. 3 is a sectional plan View on line 3-3, Fig. 1.

In the drawings like eharactersof reference indicate corresponding parts in each fi ure.

1 indicates the :body of the container provided with a handle 2 and a cover 3 which may be screwed or otherwise suitably secured to the body so as to form a closure for the open end. 4 is a wall extendin across the container body in a downwardly lnclined direction from front to rear. 48 is an orifice formed in the rear or lower end of the wall 4. 5 is an inclined duct secured to the bottom of the wall 4 and extending at its front end through the orifice 6 formed in the front of the container body 1.

The opposite end of the wall forming the duct 5 is inclined downward at 7, the sides thereof being extended as indicated at 8 to the rear and bottom walls of the container body 1 thereby forming a receptacle into which the sugar passes from the main portion of the container. 9 is an angular enlargement formed at the rear end of the wall 4 in front of the'orificc r. The angular enlargement 9 is for the purpose of preventing the sugar passing by reason of its momentum as it refills the space 8 and flowing into the duct 5 and thereby supplying a greater quantity than the desired spoonful. The duct 5 is provided with a vertical extension 10 soon red to the front of the container body 1 and connected to the duct 5 by an elbow portion 11.

The upper end of the duct extension 10 is open and provided with a pivoted closing valve 12 which when the receptacle is in its normal position lies over the open end of the duct extension to close it. 13 is a-screcn extending across the receptacle above the sugar level so as to prevent any large lumps or other foreign matter that may be contained in the sugar bulk from passing into the receptacle with the sugar. 7

.Vhen it is desired to take a helping of sugar all it-is necessary to do is to tilt the receptacle into the inverted position shown in Fig.2. When in this position the pivoted valve 12. will swing open so as to maintain a 9 vertical position and therefore away from the open end of the duct extension 10. The

sugar contained in the space 8 then flows down the duct 5 as indicated in Fig. 2 and ductextension l0 and throughthe open end into the cup or other receptacle.

The su ar in the main portion of the container wi I assume the position indicated in Fig. 2, the wall 4 efiectually separating the mam portion of the sugar from that which is fed to the cup.

Upon replacing the receptacle in its normal position the bulk of sugar in the con tainer again assumes the position shown in Fig. 1, a quantity thereof'flowing through .i.

the .orlfice 43 into the space 8", the enlargement 9 preventing a greater quantity of sugar than is desired when passing into such space and filling up the lower portion of the duct 4. I

From this description it will be seen that we have devised a very simple form of sugar container which will insure the taking of a definite quantity of sugar at each helping, which will prevent the use of an unclean spoon to dip the sugar from the receptacle into the cup. It has often been found that in restaurants and other ublic places certain persons will, after using their spoon and placing'it in the mouth, use it to dip the Gil Q inte er sugar from the sugar bowl into the cup. By our device this is absolutely prevented and at the same time the entrance of dust, dirt or other foreign matter into the sugar is prevented and the soiling of the sugar by flies or other insects is also revented, thereby providing a receptacle w ich is absolutely sanitary always keeping the sugar in a clean wholesome condition.

What we claim as our invention is:

A sugar container comprising a main receptacle provided with a spout discharge and an inclined bottom portion terminating in an opening, a sugar receiving spece located beneath such opening, a duct leading from the sugar containing space to the dis= charge spout, and an angular haing member located at the lower end of the duct to prevent the inflow of sugar as it passes from the main portion of the recetacle into the sugar containing space from :3! owing into the duct.
