and the like whereby said for instance, in basements,

cellars and the like in a sturdy manner, the apparatus being inex strong, and durable.

pensive to manufacture,

With the above and numerous other objects in View as will appear as the the invention consists construction, and in description proceeds, in certain novel features of the combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more fully described and 01 In the drawings: Figure 1 represents apparatus embodying tion.

Figure 2 represents Figure 3 represents end member.

detail, it will be seen that there are two end members which are identical in constructi on and I shall now proceed to describe one in detail. Each end member is formed from a single Figure 4, one flange 5 spaced equally that the flanges may angle iron bar as shown in is provided with two slits from the center of the bar so be bent inwardly and the end portions of the bars bent upwardly to a right angular position with tion izontal and central p or horizontal portion,

respect to the center por- I have denoted the horortion by the letter A and the upright or end portions by the letters B-B.

It is to be noted. that the aforementioned flange in the horizontal portion A is provided with a plurality of notches 6.

It is to be noted that the extremities of the portions B have the other flange provided with a relatively short slit or split so that a portion may be ben t outwardly at right angles to form ears 8. As illustrated to advantage in Figure 2 it will be seen that the upper extremities of these portions B are nailed, screwed or otherwise fastened to a joist, the ears 8 being under the joist while the other portions of the 5 extremities being alongside of the joist.

Numeral 9 denotes the clothes line. It will be seen that an end may be knotted and placed in one'of the notches 6 and then run back and forth through the remaining notches and terminating 10 in a knot at the last notch thereby providing a plurality of spaced parallel strands on the clothes line.

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

The present embodiment has been described in detail since in actual practice it attains the features of advantage enumerated as desirable in the statement of the invention and the above description. It will be apparent that numerous changes in the details of construction, and in the combination and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit or scope of the invention as hereinafter claimed or sacrificing any of its advantages.

Having thus described the invention, what is claimed as new is:

A clothes hanger, comprising a pair of spaced members, each of which is formed of a single bar of angle iron bent to provide a cross-piece, and upstanding end pieces, one of the flanges of the cross piece being vertically arranged and the other flange of the cross-piece extending toward the other member and with the lower ends of the end pieces resting on the ends of the last mentioned flange, the vertical flange of each cross piece having spaced notches therein opening out through the upper edge of said flange, and a clothes line laced through the notches of the pair of cross pieces and providing runners in the line extending parallel with each other.
