:l emoucls clown usshown at 26, and this lever llt@ strikes the rear wall of the casing, and inches from below the slots 8 and 9 allowi the coin 29 to drop down into the receptacle 2l.. At the same time, the ejector has from under the column ot boxes 30, and allowed the lowermost box to drop onto platform 5. lllhen plunger 6 is released, it is returned toits normalposition h v the spring and carries with it cross piece t3. )n this vreturn movement the tongue 'll will press against enlargement l0 on the ejector` et, and return the ejector to its normal position, thereby pushing the box, which dropped onto the platform 5, into the delivery pocket 28, where it can easiljy he reached with the hand. lf the plunger and cross piece are pushed inwardly, when no coin has been dropped in the chute` the ejector will ordinarily not be carried with them, but will he held in normal position b v the weight of the boxes. lf by chance` however, the ejector should move inwardly. the dog 2O will engage the toothed rack il and prevent any further inward niovement of the ejector. rl `liis movementtrom the normal position Yuntil the dog engages the rack, is not enough to allow a box `to drop onto the platform and'he pushed ott. consequently there is no danger ot a box being obtained free.

The enlargement l 'forms a shoulder wnieh bears against the slide way, and preventsrany out-ward movement of the ejector when it is in normal position.

Various slight changes might 'oe made in the general form and arrangementot' parts tileseribed without depali'ting from my invention. and hence l do not limit myself to the {,reeif-.e details set `toi'tli,'luzt consider mj'- :leltf at liberty to malte such changes and alterations as fairly fall within the spirit and scopeotI the anpen ded claims.

Having thus described my invention` what l cla-im as new and desire to ,st-cure lu' lietters Patent is:

l. )t vending machine` comprisinga casing, au ejector in the easing. a plunger movA able longitudinally below tl e ejector and projecting through the easing. a cross piece on the plunger having a coin .slot therein. an enlargement on the. inner end ol the ejector limiting the outward movem'J-nl thereof and haring a coin slot normally registering with the .'-zlot in the cross piece, said plungex and ejector adapted to he coupled by a coin in the slot. wht-Wehr the plunger when Yforced inwardlj-f will move the ejector in one direction, a ton eue on the cross piece engaging behind the ej i ctor, whereby the outward movement of the plunger causes the outward movement of the ejector, and ay spring eX- erting outward pressure on the plunger to move the plunger and the ejector outwardly eject-ing the goods, substantially described.

2. A vending machine, comprising a casing, an ejector in the easing, a plunger movable longitudinally below the ejector and )roectine' through the casin a cross )ieee vmovement ot the plunger causes the outward movement ot' the ejector, a spring exerting outward pressure on the plunger to move the plunger and the ejector outwardly ejecting the goods, and means for releasing the coin when theplunger reaches its innermost position, sul'istantially as described.

3. A vending machine, comprising a casing, an ejector in the casing, a plunger movable longitudinally below the ejector and projecting through the casing, a cross piece on the plunger having a coin slot therein, an enlargement on the 'inner end of the ejector limiting the outward movement thereof and having a coin slot normally registering with the slotin the cross piece, said plunger and ejector adapted to be coupled hy a coin in the slot whereby the plunger when forced inwardly will move the ejector in one direction. a tongliie on the cross piece engaging behind the ejector, whereby the outward movement of the plunge-r causes the outward movement ot the ejector, a spring exerting outward pressure on the plunger lo move the plunger and the ejector out wardly electing the goods, a spring held coin releasing lever pivotally secured to` the under tare ot the eross piece and adapted to strike the rear wall of the casing to release the coin when the plunger reaches its innermost position,substantially as described.

ln testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
