'3 Claims. 01. same) This invention relates to a stationary or portward toward the center of base 1 and are adjaablebag holder of the type adapted to hold fabric cent to the rear thereof. From the center, or other sacks so that the mouth ofsaid sacks brackets 2 are bent upward to form standard 3 may be held in an open position to receive the and are welded at their upper extended end thus desired contents.

Pins 10 also form a fulcrum for arms 9. Arms I accomplish this object by providing a bag 9 extend backwards and beyond pins 10 to form holding device comprising oppositely disposed levers 11 to which one end of springs 12 are securesemi-circular arms adapted to hold the bag, ly anchored, the other ends of springs 12 are 75 which arms are resiliently held in position and anchor d o p o u s 3 of pp bracket 5, that may be adjustable vertically on a standard thus through springs 12 and levers l1 bag holdsecured to a suitable base. ing arms 9 are held shaped to form an L as shown To these and other ends, the invention conby the Sectional V W in the upright 14 sists in novel features of construction and comholds the mouth of the bag open and the horizonbination of elements hereinafter described and tal extended part 15 keeps the bag from slipping clearly set forth in the claims. off of semi-circular arms.

While I have shown a portable structure to be moved at the convenience of the operator, the

same may be attached to a stationary object or machine where the portable features are not required or thought desirable. The standard need not be notched, it was only thought desirable to notch the same to obviate frictional wear of long usage aswhen new the bow of the standard will cause sufficient friction to hold the bracket rigid at all times.

Having now described my invention I claim as new and novel:

1. A bag holding device comprising a base a standard raising vertically therefrom said standard being composed of a plurality'of vertical strips secured together at their ends, resiliently held apart from each other at their centers and having notches along the forward surface,- oppositely disposed semi-circular arms disposed substantially at each end of a bracket, said bracket provided at its center with a transverse opening through which the standard may pass, said transverse opening being provided with a horizontal protrusion which comes in locking contact with the aforesaid notches'thereby holding said bracket at any desired height, said semi-circular arms disposed substantially in a horizontal plane with their concave sides toward each other, said arms being fulcrumed about vertical pivots, means supplied to hold said arms resiliently apart substantially as shown.

2. A bag holding device comprising a base a standard raising vertically therefrom, said standard being composed of a plurality of vertical strips secured together at their ends, resiliently held apart from each other at their centers, oppositely disposed, semi-circular arms disposed substantially at each end of a bracket, said bracket provided at its center with a transverse opening through which the standard may pass, said semicircular arms disposed substantially in a horizontal plane with their concave sides toward each other, said arms having outward horizontal protr'u'sions along the lower side of said curved surface forming a bag supporting ledge, said arms being fulcrumedabout vertical pivots, means supplied to hold said arms resiliently apart substantially as shown.

3. In a'bag holder, the combination with the bag engaging arms, of a bracket supporting said arms, said bracket having a vertical passage through it, a standard comprising two strips of metal arranged in propinquity and having resilient portions slightly separated, said standard portions being constructed to engage the passage of the bracket resiliently permitting the bracket to be moved up and down and held in adjusted position. 7
