Update 11/27/09 - the answer is: A dust container for a compressed air duster, "used in spraying field and truck crops," patent number 1,877,778. No one got it right (in time anyhow, there were correct answers posted after the What is it? Blog has posted the answer). Congratulations to two funny guesses who got the prizes instead:

Melphistopheles who said "Jar-Jar" and davisbg who said "Beginner's Ship-in-a-bottle Kit"

glass making jar. put sand in the jar, tie a kite on one end, rest of the electrically conductive line on the other. fly the kite in a thunderstorm. tie the line to a tall tree. when lightning strikes, the intense electromagnetic energy will fuse the sand particles to glass. use glass as jewelry or conversation starter.

it's part of a watering system for small animals such as chickens. the bottom half screwed down into a dispensing dish and the top was filled with water. the top lid kept dirt out of the water supply.

Obviously a fart catcher. First invented in 1764 by English inventor Bert Flatulence the 6th Earl of Methaneham (contemporary and cousin of inventor John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich) One would deposit the fart into one end and release it from the other. Magik was employed by the invisible unidirectional semi-permeable membrane easily spotted in the middle of the container. Bert would capture his farts only to torture his poor wife and children while they were sleeping always laughing out loud and saying "Farts are like fish it's simply unethical not to catch and release" No one liked Bert, he was a pompous annoying prick and really got on everyones nerves. When he died (in a freak accident while laughing so hard that he farted out his intestines) most agreed that they were glad to be rid of that blow-hard. Engraved on his tombstone they simply wrote he was "From hole to hole always an old-fart at heart"

Well, this is clearly a jar NOT for people of the sign of Gemini, as they are not always decided on which direction to go, hence this jar is not helpful in taking them to a clear decision on which way to open it. My wife is from Gemini and I know what I am talking about!
