Description: Patent for a new and improved cotton-press. This design "is to so construct a press that the force shall be applied solely by the pulling action of the screw, and so that the cotton can be put in at the top of the box and compressed without the usual tramping of the same therein by an operative preparatory to applying the force of the press, thereby doing away with a door or opening near the top of the box for inserting the cotton, and dispensing with the tramping operation" (lines 32-42).
