FAUMIGATING-CANDLE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 744,766, dated November` 24, 1903.

Application filed April 25, 1903. Serial No. 154,226. (No model.)

To all whom t may concern:

Beitknown that I, ERNEST KIMMIGH, a citizen of the United States, residing at Detroit, in the county of Wayne and State of Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements .in Fumigating- Candles, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings.

The invention relates particularly to torches or candles designed for disinfecting purposes, consisting, primarily, of a body of infiammable and fumigating material and an embedded wick; and the essential object of the invention is toproduce a torch of this character that `upon ,once being ignited will burn continuously until the material of which the body is composed is entirely consumed.

With this object in View the invention consists in the novel and simple construction of the torch and in the peculiar arrangement and combination of its parts, as will be fully hereinafter set forth and illustrated.

In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of an embodiment of my invention. Fig.

, 2 is a vertical central section therethrough.

Fig. 3 is a perspective view of a modified construction. Fig. 4 is a vertical central section through the modification, and Figs. `5. and 6 are sectional views of further modifications.

In the construction of the torch the body is preferably composed of a block of sulfur A, in which is embedded a wick B, reference being had particularly to Fig. l of the drawings. As shown, the wick is preferably, though not necessarily, fiat, of considerable width, and projects in a substantially lateral direction from the body below its top, in this instance along a line in proximity to the base. Upon theignition of the projecting portion of the wick, which is preferably coated with sulfur, the flame, as will be obvious, will strike against the body, causing the latter to rapidly melt and ignite, the melted and burning sulfur running down upon the Wick and the sides of the body, collecting about the base thereof, and entirely igniting the block. After the ignition has thus been effected the torch-body will burn until all of the material is consumed.

In Fig. 3 a torch is illustrated having two wicks embedded therein in a manner to project from the body along lines in proximity to the base upon each of the body sides. I have also. shown the torch-body in this instance as arranged within a suitable container D, having the upwardly-projecting flanges or sides, as shown. This is a quite desirable construction, as the container serves to collect the owing sulfur about the base of the body and prevent it from spreading. Y

For the purpose of aiding combustion arecess E is preferably formed in one of the body sides in proximity to the base'and immediately adjacent to the projecting portion of the wick. The parts are proportioned in such manner that the wick when the torch is not in use may be folded into the recess in the manner indicated by dotted lines in Fig. 2, leaving the side from which the wick projects perfectly smooth. This permits the torches to be more conveniently and cornpactly packed for storage or transportation.

In Fig. 6 a construction of torch is shown in which the wick F is arranged centrally within the body and projects in a recess G, formed centrally within its base.

In Fig. 5 astill further modification is shown wherein a' wick H is embedded transversely within the body near the top and projects from the body, as at I, along a line parallel with the base.

It Will be understood from the description of my invention that it is immaterial how thewick is embedded, providing that it has its projecting portion extending from the body at a point below the top and in such relation to the body that the ame of the burning wick will be directed against the body for the purposes previously set forth.

It will be obvious from the construction of the torch that it may be manufactured at slight cost and that on account of the peculiar arrangement of the wick in relation to the body no difficulty will be experienced in properly and effectively igniting the body, so that after the torch is once lighted the material of which it is composedl will be entirely consumed, producing the results desired.

l. A fumigating-candle, comprising a body of inflammable and fumigating material having a broad fiat wick embedded therein projecting from the body below its top.

2. A fumigating-candle, comprising a body of inflammable and fumigating material, and a Wide fiat wick embedded therein and projecting from the body along a line in proxim ity to its base.

3. A fumigating-candle, comprising a body of inflammable and fumigating lnaterial having a transverse recess formed therein below its top, and an embedded flat Wick projecting from the body at the recess.

4. Afumigating-candle, comprising a body of inflammable and fumigating material having a transverse recess formed in one of its sides in proximity to its base, and a Wick embedded within said body and projecting laterally therefrom immediately adjacent to the recess.

5. A fumigating-candle, comprising a body of infiammable and fumigating material, an embedded wick projecting from the body below its top, and a container Within which the body is mounted constructed to receive the melted material and retain the latter in adjacence to the body sides While burning.

6. Afumigating-candle comprising a body of inflammable and fumigating material having a recess formed in its base portion, a Wide flat wick embedded within the body and projecting therefrom along a line in proximity with and immediately adjacent to the recess, and a container within which the body is mounted constructed to receive the melted material and retain the latter in adjacence to the body while burning.

7. A fumigating-candle, comprising a container having a substantially continuous upwardly-projecting ange or side, a block of inflammable and fnmigating material within the container and spaced from said flange or side, and a wick embedded within the block and projecting from the latter at a distance below its top.

In testimony whereof I affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.

ERNEST KIMMICH.
