inwardly to conceal the sides of the money drawer.

as any drawer construction, the space between the inner ends of the sides 21' being left open. In the front part of the drawer and permanently secured to it, I provide one or more compartments 3 for coin and 4 for small bills for use in making change, and adapted to be drawn out and pushed in and opened and closed whenever the drawer is operated.

Back of these compartments I provide a special money drawer 5 for the storage of large bills, with front end 51 and rear end 52 and with side walls 53 and 54 divided by longitudinal partitions 55 which are made up of sheet metal folded upon itself to form longitudinal pockets or slideways 56 therebetween and turned outwardly into flanges at 57 which are soldered, welded or otherwise secured to the bottom 58 of the drawer, the bottom 58 being made integral with the sides 53 and 54. This money drawer is disposed within the drawer sides 21 and is free to reciprocate therein. The money drawer towards its front at each corner is provided with an anti-friction roller 59 projecting down to ride in the bottom 22 of the main drawer. The drawer camouflage is made up of a cross plate 6, forming the rear of the compartments 3 and 4, having partition-like slide members '7 extending forwardly and parallel with the sides 21, 21, and adapted to reciprocate The sides 21 are flanged The money drawer is provided with a latch catch 8 to be engaged by the hooked latch 9 pivoted at 91' on the bracket 92 all carried on an insulator block 93 which carries an electromagnet 10 disposed to act upon the latch hook 9 and release the said money drawer when the circuit is closed. Electric spring contacts 11 are pro- 'pull 14 within which is a revolving disk *15 housed by the annular flange 141 with a winthe circle.

vided to cooperate with adjustable binding screws 12 secured to the drawer bottom 22 being insulated by the insulation 121. The electric wires are disposed in the conduit 13 and extend to the front of the drawer where switch control means hereafter to be described are provided.

The drawer front is provided with a drawer member dow 142 at the top through which the numbered periphery 151 of the disk member 15 appears. The disk member 15 is fixed on the spindle 16 which is held yieldingly forward by the yielding spring pin 17.

The spindle is journaled in the casting 143 and the spindle 16 is provided with an arm 161 to which is connected a spring 162 returning the spindle 16 and is capable of adjustment around Contact member 40 is supported on insulation 401 on the drawer front and rests with a yielding pressure upon the circular contact member 303 whereby current is supplied to the brush 30. The brush 30 is adaptedto contact with the contact members 19 or 20 as desired. When located at 20 they close the circuit to the electromagnet 10,'release the money drawer sothat when the same is drawn forward the money drawer is drawn out, and unless the brush 30 is is being tampered with and the brush 30 is brought into contact with the member 19, I provide a special circuit 50 which operates, closing the current to the cut-out electromagnet 60. This operates switch lever 601 provided to break the circuit to the magnet 10 and prevent, until the same is re-set, the operation of the release for the said money drawer. This makes it impossible, Without destruction of the device, to open the said money drawer.

There can be located in a branch of the circuit an annunciator bell which is operated at the same time. A hand switch 701 is provided whereby the bell may be cut out.

An electromagnet is provided which may be closed into the circuit momentarily by the key operated switch 90 for drawing the swinging lever 601 to close and re-set the electric circuit and electromagnet 10 for operation. This cannot be accomplished until the possessor of the key has operated the key operated switch 90.

To permit the change drawer to be operated without operating the money drawer or the alarm bell, I provide a blank safety contact 100 which is insulated from the general contact 19 as seen in Fig. 12. When the switch 30 is swung to this position and the drawer pull is operated, the tip oi the switch 30 contacts with this insulated member, no current passes and consequently the hook 9 remains in engagement with the money drawer and the drawer camouflage is pulled out, having the appearance of being empty compartments of the money drawela. When there is money in the forward compartments, the deception is complete, as apparently only change has been provided and the indication is that there is nothing else in the compartments. When it is desired for the owner to make sure that he is informed whenever the drawer is operated, a hand switch 501 is provided in the circuit 50 to close the same to the plate 100 and insure the operation of the trip and the alarm at any movement of the money drawer. A permanent connection may be provided by a screw 502, as seen in Fig. 12. Theannunciator or alarm can of course be cut out independently by the switch. As indicated in Fig. 9, by loosening the clamping nut, the disk can be adjusted to the pointer to bring any figure in. position, the disk being locked by screw pin 182, as seen in Fig. 2, or by stub pin 183 as seen in Fig. 14.

The revolving disk15 is provided with annular perforations 153, into which fits a tapered pin 152 at any of its adjusted positions. This makes it necessary for the knob to pulled out and in at each interval to securea contact, thus making itimpossible to swing the switch around in contact and by that means operate the mechanism Without selective movement. This stops any false alarms and makes diflicult any operation except the selected one which is known only to the proprietor or operator.

With the connections shown, the proper person must know the right operation and perform the right operation the first time else the whole apparatus is cut out and it is impossible to operate it until it is re-set. The alarm may be substituted for the cut-out, as seen in Fig. 12. This annunciator may be in proximity to the machine purely. by mechanical means. 7

latch meansfor the money drawer mechanically fend, money tills thereof, forwardly projecting partition walls free at their inner ends supported at latch with circuit leading is a spring bolt 600 with a slotted shank fiol provided with an anti-friction roller 602. This is operatedby lever 709 having cam finger 791 entering the slot 601 and. acting on the roller 602, so

that when the spindle 16 is pulled forward as seen in Fig. 13, by a pull on theknob 800, or, asseen in Fig. 2, by a pull on the disk 15, the bolt is auto'.

natically released, permitting'the drawerto opened. The disk is provided with radial corrugations on its inner face to-facilitate its operation by reaching the finger or hand into the space, as seen particularly in Fig. .5. This permits adjustment of the disk to expose the, proper. iigureto indicate the operation desired. Immediately the knob or 162 returns the disk to neutral. I

In Fig. 14 I show a modification in which a regular knob drawer pull is made use of in place of the special construction illustrated in Fig. 2. Onxspindle 16 -I secure the knob 800. Disk 14,15 secured to the knob and is the same as the disk in Fig. 2. Acentrally disposed spring 801 holds disk. 15 yieldingly, inward I by the knob in place of by the finger actually engaging the disk. All the otheroperating parts are substantially identical with those appearing in Fig. 2. l w .In-Fig. 15, I show the latch means control may operate the The money drawer" structure is precisely the same. The hooked latch 9 is operated mechanically by a'fixed arm on the spindle 16. The spindle 16 operates the lever 801 which is connected to a push-rod 802 which. thrusts against the lever 900, causing it to engage under the stop on the lacth 9 so that when the -spindle'is turned to a predetermined and known position, it is pos-v sible to release and open the money drawer;-
