Application filed December 2, 1922. Serial No. 604,485.

struction, adaptation and combination of parts hereinafter described and'claimed.

In the accompanying drawing, Figure 1 is a plan view, shown partly broken away, of-a dispensing bag-holder embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal vertical section taken substantially through 2-2 of Fig. 1. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of one of the bag-supports shown in the preceding views.

In said drawing the reference numeral 5 represents a rectangular casing having a bottom 6, side walls 7, a rear wall 8 and a top wall 9. The casing, as shown, is divided by longitudinal partitions 10 into three compartments 11, 12 and 13'of widths slightly greater than the widths of the bags, indicated by 14, 15 and 16, which are designed to be used in the respective compartments.

The front wall of the casing is formed of two complementary parts 17 and 18 one above the other. The lower part 17 of the front wall is rigidly secured to the adjacent portions of said bottom and the side walls 'and the other front part 18 is pivotallycon- 'nected intermediate its height as by means of pins 19 to the side walls The wall part 18 constitutes a door, as it will be termed hereinafter, and is adapted to have its upper end swing forwardly .to occupy the position in which it is represented by dotted lines 18 in Fig. 2.

The top wall 9 is formed and arranged to provide therein a front opening, as 20 Fi 2, into each of said compartments.

ooperating with said top wall is a strip or cleat 21 dis osed above the door and secured at its en s to side walls 7 Said strip is of a width to afiord an abutment or stop as at 22 for the bags. The strip 21 may also serve to support a eeper 23 for a latch fastening 24 provided on the door. The paper bags above referred to in each compartment are supported upon a platform such as 25 of less length than the respective compartment and is pressed upwardly by means of helical springs 27. These springs are secured to the casing bottom 6 and to the respective platform and, as illustrated in Fig. 2, are arranged to urge the platform upwardly and toward the front of the casing to cause the bags to engage against the stop 22. Adjacent to its front end a platform is formed to have a portion 28 which projects above the plane of the platform portions 29 and 30 to the rear and front, respectively, of the ortion 28.

T 1e elevated portions 28 of the platform function to have the bottoms of the bags which are positioned below the opening in the top wall 9 bulged upwardly into such opening and cause the sides 31 of its bottoms 32 of the uppermost bag in each compartment to be protruded through the said openmg.

From the foregoing it is apparent that the bags in each compartment, as shown in Fig.

2 for example, are forced upwardly by the respective spring pressed platform 25 to bear against the underside of the top wall 9 and the stop 22 afforded by the stri 21 which is spaced from said top wall to a low the side 31 of the bottom 32 of an uppermost bag to be protruded through the opening in the top by means of the more elevated portion 28 of the platform.

To remove a bag from a selected compartment, the o erator grasps the part 31 of a bag and wlthdraws the same through the opening in the to of the casing.

Bags are supp ied into the casing by inserting them through the to opening when the respective platform is orced down b the hand of the operator inserted throng the casing front when the door is in its open position.

What I claim, is,

1. A bag dispensing cabinet comprising a casing adapted to contain paper bags, said casing having a door in its front wall and an opening in the casing top and located in spaced relations from the front of the casing, a bag supporting elevator platform formed with a relatively high portion dis osed directly below the casing opening, an springs provided under said elevator platform to press the bags upwardly and cause the upperinost bag to bear against the casing top in front and to the rear of the opening thereof, said raised portion of the platform serving to protrude a portion of the upper bag through said opening.

2. A bag dispensing cabinet comprising a casing adapted to contain paper bags, a spring actuated bag supporting elevator therein providedsvith a platform having a raised portion disposed directly below the casing opening, said casing having a strip at the front of its top and a top wall disposed in spaced relations with said strip to afford an opening therebetween which permits a part of the bottom of the uppermost bag upon said elevator to be thrust by the raised portion of said platform through said opening. Signed at Seattle, Washington, this 7th da} of November, 1922.
