The cash register maybe of any desired or well known construction, being shown" com- V prisinga casing or housing 1 provided. with a 7 money drawer 2 in a well known way. At 3 is amoney receiver, adapted to receive coins -A,as in Figs. 1, 2. and 3', or bills B, as in Figs. 5, 6' and 7. The coin receiver '3 is shown'proand means to guidejthedisinfected money to vided with a movable bottom or wall i'piv'otr edtothe receiver'at 5 and normally retained closed against a coin recess 3aby aspring 6 carried by the receiver.

The roller 12 may have an absorptive covering, such as of felt. Disinfecting fluid may be supplied in any desired way. I have illustrated anendless belt 15,

which may be of felt or other absorptive mate'rial, passing around the roller 13 and around a roller 16.journaled on a tank 17, carried by the casing land adapted to receive a. disinfectant material or fluid into which the belt 15 dips to transmit the disinfectant to the roller 12 and to the money passing between said roller and belt. Below the roller 12 and the belt 15 are a pair of rollers 18 and 19 adapted to receive between them and feed the coins or bills that pass from the roller 12 and the belt 15. Therollers 18 and 19 may comprise felt or other absorptive material tending to dry the money that passes therebetween. The rollers 12, 13, 18 and 19,

and thereby the 1belt 15, may be driven by a suitable train of gearing, indicated at 20 in Fig. 4:, so thatthe coins or bills will pass between the roller 12and belt 15 for disinfect: ing and, thence between the rollers 18 and 19 ing place. h V

The rollers and belt described may be driven by an electric motor, at 21, coupled to the shaft 12 of roller 12 Fig. 3. An electric power line 22 maybe connected toone for drying, whence they will pass to a receiv- 9 Dbl &
