eliminating the danger of upset-ting.

Another very im )ortant object "of the'invent-ion resides in die provision of a structure of this nature which is simple, inexpensive to manufacture, strong and durable, thoroughly efficient and reliable, and otherwise well adapted tothe purpose for which it is designed; r i

\Vith the above and numerous other objects in view as will appear asthe descrip-. tion proceeds, the invention resides in certain novel features of construction, and in the combination and arrangementof parts that will be hereinafter more fully described.

In the drawings Figure 1 is a side elevation of the rocker embodying my invention,

Figure 2.15 a top plan view thereof,

Figure 3 is a vertical longitudinal section therethrough taken substantially on the line 3-3 of Figure 2,

Figure 5 is a rear elevation of the rocker,

Figure 6 is a vertical transverse section taken substantially on the line 6-6 of Figure 1, V

Figure 7 is a perspective view of the table plate, and

Referring to the drawings in detail, it will be seen that the numeral 5 denotes a pair of elongated rocker plates having curved bottom edges and relatively straight upper edges. These rocker plates-5 are connected at their ends by rungs 6 and at intermediate portions by a rung 7. A seat 8 extends between the rocker plates 5 above the rung 7 and below the upper straightedges thereof. Extension side plates 9 rise from the upper edges of the rocker plates 5, and at their upper edges are provided with spaced notches 10, and at their forward edges with notches 11. A back plate 12 is rockable as at 14 between the rockerplates 5 and has is a perspective view of the back I provided.

' invention as pivoted catches 15 thereon engagedin the notches 10 so that theseat may be held in different raised adjusted positions. A table plate 16 is provided with .end angular extensions 17 rockably mounted as at 18 to the forward portions of the side plates 9, and catches 19 are pivoted thereto for engagement with notches 11 so that the table may beheld. in the upper position shown in Fig-' ure 3, or the catches may be removed and the table plates swung to the position shown in Figure 4 that is substantially coplanar with the seat plate 8 atwhich time the-back plate .12 may be swung down to its lowered portien to rest on the rung 6 at the rear of the rocker structure. Y

"Whenthe parts are disposed in the position shown in Figure 3 it will be seen that a rocker is provided for a child which will be practically impossible-to upset because of the low center of gravity provided by the underslung mounting ofthe seat 8. In Fig-. ure 4 it will be seen that an eflicient. bed is It will further be seen that theparts may be easily adjusted from the position in Fig- ,ure '8 to that; shownin Figure 4, and vice versa. The structure of the device is simple in its combination and simple in its details, it may therefore be manufactured at a low cost, but be strong and durable.

It is thought that the construction, utility, and advantages of this invention will now be quite apparent to those skilled in this art without a more detailed description thereof.

The present embodiment of the invention has been disclosed in detail merely by way of example since in actual practice it attains the features of advantages enumerated as desirable in the statement of the invention,

and the above description. It will be apparent that changes in the details of con struction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or scope of the hereinafter claimed or sacrific- 7 ing any of its advantages.

Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A device of the class described comprising a pair of rocker plates,a seat plate extending between the rocker plates, a back plate rockably mounted between the rocker plates, a table plate having angular endextensions rockably mounted between the rocker plate so that it inay be swung to a position above the seat plate or to a position in front of and coplanar with the seat plate.

2. A device of the class described comprising a pair of rocker plates, a seat plate extending between the rocker plates, a back 7 plate rockably mounted between the rocker plates, a table plate having angular end extensions rockably mounted between the rocker plate so that it may be swung to aposition above the seat plate or to a position in front of and coplanar with the seat plate,

means for supporting the back plate in a down position, and means for supporting the back plate in a ralsed position.

3. A device of "the class described COIIlPllS ing a pair. of rocker plates, a seat plate extending between the rocker plates, a back plate rockably mounted between the rocker plates, a table plate having angular end extensions rockably mounted between the rocker plate so that it may be swungto a posi- 'tion above the seat plate or to a position in front of and coplanar with the seatplate, means for supportmg the back plate in a down position,' neans for supporting the back plate in a raised" position, means for supporting the tablein an upper position.

4. A device ofthe class described comprising a pair of elongated rocker plates having lower curved edges and substantially straight edges, rungs connecting the plates in spaced coextensive parallelism, a seat plate between the rocker plate a distance below the upper edges thereof, extension side plates rising from the upper edges of the rocker plate, a back plate rockably mounted between the rocker plates to swing between the extension side plates so that when it is in a down position it will rest on one of the rungs, pivotedcatches on the back plate, the

in spaced coextensive parallelism, a seat plate between the rocker plate a distance below the upper edges thereof, extension side platesv rising from the upper edges of the rocker plate, a back plate rockably mounted between the rockerplates to swing between the extension side plates so that when it is in a downposition it will reston one of the rungs, pivoted catches on the back plate, the
