MATCH-SAFE FOR LANTERNS.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 317,747, dated May 12, 1885.
Application filed February 24, 1885.
.To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, JOHN W. DICK, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Limerick, in the county of York and State of Maine, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Lanterns; 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 being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification, and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of the base and oil-reservoir of a lamp or lantern provided with my improvement. Fig. 2 is a plan of the under side of the same. Fig. 8 is a vertical sectional view on line 00m, and Fig. 4 is a similar View at right angles to the view shown in Fi 3.
gimilar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.
My invention has relation to the permanent attachment of a receptacle for matches to the base of a lamp or lantern in such a manner that the matches will always be ready and handy for use, while the receptacle operates to brace and strengthen the lamp, so that the base and oil-receptacle of the same may be made with thinner metal than would otherwise be the case.
To this end my invention consists in theimproved construction and combination of parts of the lamp-base and match-receptacle, as will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.
In the accompanying drawings A denotes the oil-receptacle of a lamp or lantern of my improved construction, which is provided with an outwardly-flaring flange, B, forming the base of the lamp. Fastened upon the under side of the receptacle A by soldering, or in any other suitable manner, are two parallel flanges, O O, which are bent at right angles toward each other, as shown at D, to form ways for the sliding drawer E, which is inserted (No model.)
through an aperture, F, in the flaring base or flange B.
Upon the under side of the sliding drawer E is fastened a downwardly-projecting fingerpiece, G, and also a spring, H, the free end of length into the base under the oil-receptacle,
the free end of the spring will abut against the inside of the flange or base B, as shown in Fig. 3, and thus prevent the drawer from sliding out of its own accord.
When it is desired to open the drawer to take out a match for lighting the lamp, the free end of the spring is pressed up against the bottom of the drawer, and by then press ing upon the finger-piece G the drawer may be readily shoved out a sufflcientdistance to obtain access to its contents. The downward projection of finger-piece G also prevents the drawer from slipping out too far so as to be come detached from the base.
The front part of the drawer may be roughened or serrated, so that the match may be ignited by rubbing on said surface.
Having thus described my invention, I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States The combination of the oil-receptacle A, provided with the parallel re-enforcing flanges or ways 0 O, flaring base or flange B, having aperture F, and drawer E, having slot 6, and provided with the finger-piece G, and spring H, substantially as and for the purpose shown and set forth.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereunto aflixed my signature in presence of two witnesses.
JOHN W. DICK.
FRANK M. HIGGINS, GEo. MOULTON.
