The rack ,is fur vther provided with means sides and ends foldedoutwardly parallel f exact description, reference being had tothe accompanying drawings, 'forming a part hereof.V f
My invention and the object of my invention is to con* struct a simple and inexpensive device in the form of a rack whichlis sectional sothat it may be knocked down in order vto occupy an mmimum of spacewhenanot in use, and the rack is provided with means whereby it may and supported spaced apart from the outwhereby the bed clothing may be held withinthe rack against beingy blown therefrom. Y ,l n f V,With the above purposes in view my invention consists in certain novel features of construction' and arrangement of parts' as will be hereinafter more fully described, pointed o-ut in the claims and illustrated by the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a plan of the completedevice,A
showing in dotted lines of one characterrthe with the bottom of the rack'and lin dotted llines of another character the sides andends folded beneath the bottom; Fig.2 is anelevation of the complete device; Fig. 8 .is-a
