DELOSS W. MILLS, OF CARO, MICHIGAN.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 250,159, dated November 29, 1881,
Application led September 7, 1881.
To all lwhom lit may concern:
.Be it known that I. DELoss W. MILLS, of Caro, Tuscola county, Michigan, have invented an Improvementin Cracker-Chests, ofwhich the following is a specication.
The nature of this invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in the construction of ca ses or chests for receiving crackers, and from which they are retailed by the dealer, the object being to preserve the crackers and to prevent their breaking.
The invention consists'in the peculiar construction ofthe chest, all as more fully hereinafter set forth.
Figure 1 is a perspective view with one of the side walls broken out. Fig. 2 is a vertical central section.
In the accompanying drawings, which form a part ot' this specification, A represents a suitable case or box, in one side of which is fitted the drawer B, at or near the bottom, and upon the opposite side of the case is formed a projecting shelfprovided with a lid, C, designed to close the opening a, the size of said opening being regulated, as desired, by means of the slide b. Transversely across the box, and at the bottom thereof, is placed the low partition or wall c, from the top of which there extends the grated shelf D, the upper end of which rests upon the inner side of the chest upon the sideoppositethe discharge-openinga,this grate heilig set upon an incline, as shown. Upon (No model.)
shelf or table E, set at a lesserincline than the grate. F is a suitable cover.
In practice the crackers are dumped into the top of the chest resting upon the grate and shelf, a certain quantity' falling through upon the projecting shelt'. When it is desired to remove any quantity of crackers they are scooped out through the opening a, the crackers sliding down the grate, which sifts the small particles and deposits them in the drawer below, while the crackers pass on to the discharge.
By the use of this chest I am enabled to handle crackers with theleast possible breakage, while at the same time they are kept sweet and free from the danger ot' molding or becoming musty.
What I claim as my invention is l. A cracker-chest provided with an opening, a, and lid C,in combination with the grate D and shelt' E, substantially as described.
2. A cracker-chest consisting| ofthe box A, provided with the opening a, grate D, shelf E, and drawer B, substantially as specified. l
3. Acracker-chest consisting ot' the box A, provided with the opening a, grate D, shelt' E, drawer B, and slide b, substantially as and for the purposes set forth.
