MATCH.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 623,233, dated April 18, 1899.
Application filed August 19, 1897; Serial No. 648,803. (No model.)
To (tZZ whom, it may concern.-
Be it known that I, HENRY L. BUXToN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Milwaukee, in the countyof Milwaukee and State of isconsin, have invented new and useful Improvements in a Oombined Match and Taper, of which the following is a specification.
The object of my invention is to provide a single article of manufacture or device which will combine within itself the twofold function of a match and taper whereby when the match is struck in the ordinary manner the combustible material, which is located in a small cavity or receptacle within the match, will be ignited, thus producing a flame and light that will be maintained a much longer time than that of matches of the ordinary construction, and owing to the fact that the receptacle is made of noncombustible or poorlycombustible material will not burn back from the ends, thereby lessening the liability of burning the users fingers.
My invention is further explained by reference to the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 represents a side view, and Fig. 2 represents a vertical section, of the invention.
Like parts are referred to by the same reference-letters throughout both views.
A represents the body of the match,which is preferably made of a slow-burning material, such as poplar or basswood. The length of the body A is preferably about one-third that of the ordinary match, whereby it is less liable to be broken by contact with a rough surface when being ignited. The diameter of the body is preferably somewhat larger than that of the ordinary match and is provided at one end with acavity or chamber 13, which is -filled with paraffin or other similar combustible material G. hen the chamber B is filled with paraffin or other combustible material, the same is inclosed by a cap D, which cap is composed of ordinary igniting substances used in the construction of common matches. It is obvious that by this con-' struction the cavity in the body of the match forms a receptacle for a considerable quantity of paraffin or other combustible material, whilethe surrounding fiber of the wood performs the function of an exterior wick,through which the paraffin as it is melted is drawn by capillary attraction from such receptacle as it is burned, whereby the device serves the twofold function, as stated, of a match and taper, the paraffin or other combustible ma terial serving to maintain a bright agreeable flame for a considerable period of time after the igniting substances of the cap are extinguished, the purpose or gist of my invention being to store within the body of the match a quantity of combustible material to maintain combustion after the igniting substances have been extinguished. It is also obvious that owing to the fact'that the duration of the flame depends upon the quantity of paraffin in the receptacle and not upon the length of the match I am enabled to use a much shorter match than those in common use, and conse quently one less liable to be broken when ignited, while owing to the non-combustible nature of the body of the match the flame will be at once extinguished as soon as the paraffin is consumed, and there is less liability of accidental fires from discarded stubs.
Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure byLetters Patent, is
1. A combined match and taper, consisting of a longitudinal body formed of a non-combustible or a poorly-combustible substance, provided at one end with a cavity or receptacle filled with a quantity of combustible material adapted to produce a light after the igniting material has been consumed, and an inclosing cap formed of igniting substances adapted, by frictional contact, to be ignited and to ignite the combustible material within said cavity and cap, whereby a flame will be maintained by said combustible substance after said igniting substance is consumed, substantially as and for the purpose specified.
2. A combined match and taper, consisting of a longitudinal body formed of a non-combustible or a poorly-combustible substance, provided at one end with a cavity or receptacle filled with paraffin, and an inclosing cap formed of igniting substances adapted, by frictional contact, to be ignited and to ignite said paraffin, said paraffin being adapted to burn and produce a light after said igniting material has been consumed, all substantially as and for the purpose specified.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signaturein the presence of two witnesses.
