Another object of the invention the provieion ot' a hase hoard havinp; eprint;l jaws arranged thereon hetween which the ncclie oi? liottlrn are receive/rh one oil? the springt jawe oit `each hottie receiving unit lining' supported agrainnt down 'ard movement hy an ainrularly extending' liracc, which hare their lower ende attached to the liano hoard,

A tui-ther object oit `the invention is to provide an indicating means attached to the hase hoard for reinleringi` iarious inetruc tione ae to the quantity ot niilh deeirechy etc.

lt is also an object ot the invention to provide a device oiA the lrind indicated, which ie siinple and euhetant-ial in construct-ion., which can he manufactured economically, and which will he tl'ioroughly eiiicient and practical in use.

llVith the foregoing and other objects in i view7 which will loe apparent as the description proeeede, the invention resides in the construction and arrangement oi' parte, as hereinaiter described and claimed, it being nnderatood 'that changes can he made within lille miope olt what ie elainwd without de- ;Yiartinigj troni the s-ipirit nii the invention.

lin carrying out the invention, the nuineral il() designates a hase hoard, which in adapted to he attached toa wall. or the like at a spaced distance Yfrom the iloor for 'preventing the hotties :troni coming in contact with dirt and dust on the Floor and tor eliminatingI to a great extent accident-al breakinga or turning' over of the hotties. Attached to the ;l`iorward tace oii the hase hoard :nljaeent each side edge thereo'l' is a etripol.l epringg metal lll, Said Stripe heing secured to the hoard. hy means oit wood Screws l2, or the li the strips lll have right angularly lient portions 13 extendin outwardly troni the hoard and have their outer ende arranged in an arcuate lorn'i, aeat 14h tor iorn'lingi; the outeide awe ot a. pair ot bottle holding .nienihera tru ranged between the ntripe ll ie another atrip l5, which has; ita intermediate portion :'--ceured -to tl e l'ioard, aa at 11h while ite ende are provided with angl" portions ll' niniilar to tl` i angled portions; '13 ot the nleinhere il and are provided `with arcuate poi-tiene lil which :forni the other two jaws et the eupporti ng unite. ',lhe angled portions l-l ot the strips llt li e parallel and in enfrgiureaicnt with the angled port-ione il' ot' the Strip l5, said angled portions heing attached together in a rigid manner hy ineens oit rivets 20. The ends of the istrip l5 al'fter iorniingI the arcuate port-ione l@ are lient downwardly and rearwardly at. an angle? as at 19., and have their free ende secured to the hase hoardj afi at 20. From the l'foregoingit can he seen that the two strips 1l and the Strip 15 are lient or vtorined in such position ae to provide a pair oit spring jaws i'or each ot a pair ot bottle receiving uni-ts.

Above the pairs of spring' jaws and attached to the hase hoard l0 h v ineane ott screws or the like, 2l in a, dir-lli' 221 which has the major portion therool fipaccd 'from the `hoard i0 in a circular formation in order to torni a Sliace hotween the hoard and the ren"- ""'tral 'portion ol the (liek 22 tor receiving ar i indii'falfing dink 23. he indinatinn` dieli 23 haal arranglged thereon indicia which in adapted to he hrougght to a certain poaition :for aligning with. an opiniiogf 25 in the apaccd portion ot the dial( 22 ttor remlering infstructions as to the quantity et inilk desired or for instructing the inilk man to call at the door of? the building where the mill( is being lett. ln order that the disk 23 may he turned for bringing the various indicia in alignment with the opening 25 lt have provided a square opening 26 in the center of the disk 23 which reeeive'h a Squared portion 27 of a linger engagging linolo 28 pivoted centrally in the disk 22.
