Other objects and advantages of this inbecome apparentduring the course ofthe followingdescription. f"

In .the accompanying drawing forming a para of thisspecificaion .and in which like f 'numerals designate like parts throughout the same: Y Figure 1 is a front elevation ofy my imi l. proved dispensing'device.- r

Figure'2 is a vertical sectional view ta en vapproximately on line 2-2 of Figure 1,1 and Fi re 3 is a transverse section taken approximately on line 3-3 of Figure 1.

.In theV drawing wherein for of illustration is` shown the referred eme numeral 1 substantially rectangular d casing, the rear face of which is o `en in t e'n'anner as clearly illustrated in ig- .ures 2 and 3 of the drawing'.` The sides 2 designates a and3 respectively of the casing have their .open face of the casing in the like and which is putup in disassembled for replacing an empty tube with a new one whenever neces-- the purposev the racks. Secured to outer edges provided with the outwardl ex,- tending flanges 4. and'5 respectively an the same providesl means for 4slidable engage- .ment with the-vertically extending guides 6 and 7 respectively formed on the outer side edges of the supporting plate or bracket 8, the latter providing a-closure for the rear.

illustrated in the drawing.`

Extending laterally from plate-or bracket 8V adjacent the lower en the manner clearly Io5 the supporting thereof 'and at a point adjacent the lower l ends of the vertical guides 6 and 7 is the supporting flange 9 which is adapted tvo-be engaged by the base or bottom 10 of the cas-l ing in .the manner as clearly illustrated in Figures l and 2 of the drawing. The lateral flange 9v provides a means for limiting the downwar sliding 'movement of the casing.

' Ihe upperportion of the supporting plate 8 1 is provided with an extension 11m" which is formed a key hole slot 12 to provide a means for attachment to a nail or the like driven into the Wall or any other suitable place zw.y

where the dispensing* device isto be supported.

Arranged in the sides of the casing. ad-

jacent the front. 'face'thereof are the v ertically -extending slots 13, the upper'- ends asA thereof being enlarged as illustrated at 14.

The longitudinal edge of each slotI adjafcent the front facel of the casing is pro vided with the teeth 17 wherebyy a pair of racksis formed for therpurposes'f to be, res;

4ently described. The o posite longitu inal edgesof the slots are o set for their entire length in a plane substantiallyV parallel to the plane of the sides in the manner lclearly illustrated `at 18 in Figure 3 of the drawing.

. Extending through the slots 13 in .the sides of the casing is ried thereby d adapted for operation inv the ca singl the roller-20. Also carried. by the spindles 19 adjacentthe ends of the j rollersl 2O and adaptedfor Arotation therewith are the pinions 21, thev same bein adapted for engagement-- with the rack v1 foimedon the longitudinal edges of the'slots.

13adjacent the front face 16 of the casing. The offsetportionslS formed by the opposite edges ofthe slots are ,disposed ybepinions 21 and'provide a means for holding the spindle and roller in roper position so that'the .pinions will at al times mesh vwith the spindle 19 and ca r.-

thelprojecting end-'0f ioe .tween the-ends of 'the roller A20 and the handle the paste tube the spindle 19 is the sleeve 22 and formed on the outer end thereof is the knurled knob 23 which provides a means for actuatlng the spindle and the roller as well as the pinions carried thereby.

Adapted to be supported in the casmg 1 is the paste containing collapsible tube 24 and the same has its discharge nozzle 25 supported in a suitable opening 2G provided in the bottom 10 of the casing 1. The collapsible paste container is supported in an inverted position against the front face 16 of the casing so that the roller 2Q will engage the opposite side of the tube 1n the manner more clearly illustrated in F lgures 2 and 3 of the drawing. rIhe discharge nozzle 25 of the paste tube 24 is normally closed by means of the threaded closure 27 usually provided therefor. F or the purpose of l1r^ iting the upward movement of the roller 2O in the casing, a tongue 28 is struck from the upper portion of the front face 16 of the casing and the same is disposed inwardly so as to be arranged in the path of travel of thc roller.

The lower portion of the supporting bracket 8 has arranged thereon the hooks 29, any number of which may be provided and the same provide a means for supportlng 1n a suspended position tooth brushes or` the like. The operation of my dispensing device may be briefly stated as follows: rIhe threaded cap or closure 27 is removed from the discharge nozzle 25 of the paste tube and a brush is disposed below the discharge opening so that the paste from the tube which is discharged therefrom will be deposited onto the brush. The'means for extruding the paste from the tube consists in rotating the knob 23 so that the roller 20 moves downwardly against the paste tube and will progressively squeeze the paste in the tube from its closed end toits discharge end. After the desired amount of paste has been discharged from the tube onto the brush, the

threaded cap 2T is again placed over the discharge nozzle of the tube and will pnevent any further discharge of the paste from the tube.

lWhenever it is desired to remove the casing from its support for replacing an empty tube with a full one, it is only necessary to slide the casing upwardly between the guides 6 and and with the cap 27 removed from the discharge nozzle of the tube the same may be removed and a new one inserted. I The provision of a dispensing device of the above mentioned character, will render the handling of tooth paste, shaving cream, or the like sanitary and will prevent unnecessary waste as well as save considerable time and obviate the necessity of having to in vdischarging the paste therefrom on to the bristles ot' a brush.

Aends of the paste vthc casing having .lar kind of material which is to be used.

While I have shown the preferred embodiment of my invent-ion, it is to be understood that various changes in the size, shape and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit of the invention and the scope of the appended claims.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim is 1. A dispensing device of the class described for squeezing collapsible paste tubes and the like including a casing adapted to receive the colla sible tube and provided with an opening or receiving the discharge tube and having its rear face open, a closure for the rear face of the casing providing a supporting bracket for the casing, the side walls of the casing having vertical slots arranged therein, one of the longitudinal edges of each slot having teeth provided therein forming a rack, a spindle extending through said slots, a roller carried by the spindle and adapted for engagement with the collapsible tube, pinions on said spindle adjacent the ends of the roller and meshing with said racksand means on the'outer end of the spindle for rotating the same for effecting a progressive squeezing action on the tube from its closed end to its discharge end.
