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
