:SZECIFIGATI ON forming part of Letters Patent No. 688,929, dated December 17, 1901. c
Application filed June 17,1901. Serial No. 64,886. (No model.) I
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that LMAHLON M. CARR, a citi zen of the United States, residing at Fostoria,
in the county of Seneca and State of Ohio,
" ing the torch when ignited.
have inventedv a new and useful 'lorch, of .which the following is a specification.
This invention, relates to torches of that class embodying a shelter casing containing inflammable or illuminating matcrial,and has for its objects to arrange for conveniently ignitingthe torch Without resorting to matches and to have the illuminating material normally'proteoted against accidental ignition.
With these and other objects in view the presentinvention consists in the combination and arrangement of parts, as will be hereinafter more fully described, shown=in the accompanying drawings,and particularly pointed out in the appended claim, it being understood that changes in the forn1,"proportion, size, and minor details may be made within the scope of the claim without departing from the spirit or sacrificing any of the advantages of the invention. I
In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a torch embodying the present invention. Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal sectional view thereof.
Like characters of reference designate corresponding parts in both figures of the drawings.
Referring to the drawings, 1 designates a tubular open-ended shell or casing, within the lower end of which is fitted a wooden plug 2 to form a bottom closure therefor and also for thesupport'of a pointed pin 25, which is embedded in the outer end of the plug and is designed to be stuck into a support for hold- Within the shell or casing is a suitable quantity of illuminating material 4, and in the upper surface thereof there is embedd a frictionaily igniti ble plug or materials, whi i pr 1 above the up 'c For coverin 1 of the casing or shell and the plug 5 there is provided a tubular cap 6, which embraces the upper end of the shell and has its upper end closed by means of a wooden plug 7, that fits snugly within the cap and is provided with an outer marginal enlargement 8, forming a shoulder to rest upon the upper edge of the cap. In the outer end of the plug 7 there is provided a transverse groove, seat, or socket 9, in which is seated afrietional substance or material 10, which is capable of igniting the material 5 when frictionally rubbed thereon. This material 10 is flush with the outer end of the cap or plug, so as'to avoid projections, which would soon become chipped 01f.
To ignite the torch the cap is removed and inverted, after which the frictional material 10 in the outer end of the cap is rubbed upon the projected upper end of the igniting material 5, thereby igniting the latter, which. in turn ignites the illuminating material, and thereby the torch is ignited in a convenient and eiiective manner.
hat is claimed is- A torch, comprising a shell or casing, illuminating material therein, a frictionally ig nitible material in engagement with the illuminating material and projected at the open end of the shell or casing, a cap rcmovably fitted to the open end of the shell, a closureplug inserted in the outer end of the cap and provided in its outer end with a socket or ro cess, and a frictional material for ignitingthe ignitible material, said frictional material being seated within the socket and flush with the outer face of the plug.
In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have heretoaffixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses. MAHLON Iii. CARR.
