STEPHEN S. NEWTON, OF BINGHAMTON, HEY V YORK.

BOTTLE-STOPPER.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 232,362, dated September 21, ,1880.

Application filed July 8, 1879.

To all whom tt may concern Be it known. that I, STEPHEN S. NEWTON, of Bin'ghainton, in the county of Broome and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bottle-Stoppers; and'I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, which will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference beinghad to the accompanying drawings, and to letters of reference marked thereon, which form apart of this specification.

Figurelisa perspective view of my improvement, the finishing'cap being removed therefrom. Fig. 2 is a vertical section of the same with the finishing-cap in position. Fig. 3 is a section taken on line my, Fig.2, with the parts in the position shown in said figure; and Fig. 4 is a section taken on the same line with the ports closed.

In the drawings, H is the cork, adapted to fit within the neck of the bottle. H is a short tube, screw -threaded externally by preference, and firmly seated centrally of the cork. The lower end of the tube H is closed except that a section, I, of the vent-tube passes through it.

- h is a discharge-port formed in one side of the short tube H, near its lower end. (See Figs. 2, 3, and 4.)

The upper part of the tube H is provided with a flange, H adapted to cover, or nearly cover, the end of the tube or this flange may, if preferred, cover both the cork and the mouth of the bottle.

That portion of the tube H which projects above flange H is screw-threaded externally, and is recessed or cut away at its extreme upper end, the uncut portions forming shoulders h 7L2, as shown in Fig. 1, for a purpose which will be explained.

within certain limits, the extent of its rotation being limited by the contact of the spur j with the shoulders or stops h h K is a cap or thimble engaging with the upper part of tube H. It serves as a finishing for the outer end of said tube, and (by means of an inwardly-turned flange) it also operates to hold the tube J down on its seat and prevent it from slipping out when the bottle is inverted.

The ventilating-tube is arranged inside of the discharge-tube J, and eccentric thereto, the lower end of the upper portion, I, of this vent-tube abutting against the upper end of the lower portion, I, when the devices are in the position shown in Figs. 2 and 3, at which time the ports h j coincide, the spurj being at this time in contact with the shoulder k It will be seen that the contents can pass freely through the ports hj, and thence out through the discharge-tube J, and that at the same time air can pass through the vent-tube I I, and facilitate the discharge of the contents of the bottle. It will also be understood that when the discharge-tube J is rotated in the direction indicated by the arrow in Fig. 4 until the spur 7' engages with the shoulder 72/, the port h will be closed, and the upper end of the portion I of the vent-tube will be closed by the plate which closes the lower end of the dischargetube J, except at that point where the portion I of the vent-tube passes through it.

It will be seen that by closing the lower ends of both tubes, H and J, except at the points occupied by the ports and the vent-tube sections, I gain certain advantages, as follows: When the parts are in the position indicated in Fig. 4 the plate at the lower end of tube H closes the lower end of the vent-tube section 1, and the plate at the lower end of tube J closes the upper end of the vent-tube section I, thus making the stopper air-tight; whereas, if the plate at the lower end of either of these tubes were omitted, the device would not be perfectly tight, although it might be sufficiently so for use with liquids having such consistency that they would not readily flow through a small vent-tube in case the bottle were accidentally placed in an inclined or inverted position.

What I claim is- 1. In a bottle-stopper, the combination of the tube H, havingan eccentric port, h, and a recess at its upper end, the discharge-tube J, having a corresponding port and a spur, j, and the cap K, substantially as set forth.

2. In a bottle-stopper, the combination of the tube H, having an eccentric port, the discharge-tube J, h avin g a correspondin g port an d having its lower end partially closed, and the vent-tubeII,made in two sections and mounted in the tubes H and J, substantially as set forth.

/ 3. In a bottle-stopper, the combination of the following elements, viz: the dischargetube J, provided with an eccentric port for the passage of liquid and another eccentric port for the passage of air, the tube H, provided with an eccentric liquid-port-and an eccentric air-port, respectively eorrespondii'lg to the aforesaid ports in the tube J, and the in wardlyprojecting vent-tube I, arranged to communicate with the air-port in the tube J through the air-port in tube H, substantially as set forth.

4. In a bottle'stopper, the combination of 25 the following elements, viz: the dischargetube J, provided with an eccentric port in its side and an aperture for a vent-tube, the venttube I, arranged to communicate with said aperture and situated Within said tube J, the 0 tube H, provided with an eccentric port and an aperture, respectively corresponding to those in the discharge-tube, and the vent-tube I, arranged to communicate with the last said aperture, substantially as set forth.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
