SODA-WATER APPARATUS.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 508,327, dated November '7, 1893.

Application filed June 22,1893. Serial No. 478,444.. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern;

Be it known that I, FISHER-HAZARD LIP- PINCOTT, a citizen of the United States, residing in the cityand county of Philadelphia and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certrin new and useful Improvements in Soda- Water Apparatus, of which the followingis a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, of

which V Figure 1 is a vertical section of a soda-water fountain to which my invention is applied. Fig. 2 is a separate view, in perspective, of the frame or receptacle in which the sirup I5 jars are supported. Tig. 3 is an end view of the lower corner of one of the sirup jars,

with its faucet, the handle being removed from the latter, and the adjacent part of the supporting frame or receptaclebeing in sec;

tion. Fig. 4 is a side elevation of Fig. 3, the handle being shown as attached to the faucet. Fig. 5 is a detail of said handle. 7

This invention embodies a simple and efficient constructionfor supporting sirup j'ars 2 5 in soda-water fountains, whereby the jars may be readily projected beyond the body of the apparatus in order to facilitate the operation of charging, removing or replacing the jars, as will be hereinafter fully set forth.

Referring to the annexed drawing's, A rep resents the body or casing of a soda-water fountain; Bthe ice-box therein in which the soda-containing vessels are confined, and O the draft tube provided with the external 3 5 discharge faucet C. The front wall, a, of the casing is formed with a lower opening, a, to permit the insertion or withdrawal of receptacles D for the sirup jars E. These receptacles each comprise a substantial rectangular 40 frame with skeleton sides, preferably; said frame, when applied to the apparatus, being supported upon a transverse rod or roller 01 fitted to suitable brackets d on or near the forward edge of the bottom of the body A.

5 The bottom of the frame is provided, in this instance, with two transverse grooves or channels d d the forward one, d of which,is so disposed thatit receives the roller when the frame is-moved into the body A to confine the jarsg'and-the rearward one, 01 of which grooves, isso located as to receive the roller whenthe frame is drawn outward to expose the mouths of the jars. When the roller is engaged with the groove (1 the frame maybe tipped forward so as to project the mouths of the jars entirely beyond the adjacent edge of the wall a and thus permit said jars to be extracted from the frame. The upper edges of the front and back of this frame are provided with upwardly projecting lips or flanges, d d respectively, which, abutting against the wall a, limit the inward and outward movements of the frame. See Fig. 1. The upper edge of the front of the frame is also provided with a spring actuated thumblatch, d", the notched end, (1 of which is adapted to engage the inner corner of the wall and thus lock the frame in the inward position. In the present instance, the frames are disposed side by side, each frame containing two sirupjars. There is sufficient space between the top of the frame and the side of the wall a to permit the frame, when it is projected outward,

to be raised bodily above the rollerd and removed entirely from the body or casing of the apparatus.

By supporting the jars, as above described, I am enabled, incidentally, to utilize the forward portion of the interior of the body or casing, above the jars, it not being necessary, as in other constructions, to leave this space open or unobstructed for the passage of the jars in applying them to or removing them from the apparatus. I now construct the upper portion of the ice-box with a forward extension, 19, which, entering this space, immediately above the jars, alfords an extended cooling surface for the latter.

In order that the jars may be readily removed from or applied to the frame D, I prefer to connect the sirup discharge faucets c with the bottoms of the jars, respectively, the bottom of said frame having suitable openings, d therein for the passage of the respective faucets through and below the same. The tubular neck 6', connecting each faucet with its jar is provided with a flange, 6 which, resting upon the bottom of the frame, seals the opening (:1 and supports the 7 jar. The forwardly projecting handle E for operating I00 the faucet, is detachably and attachably connected with the key E of the latter, so that said handle, may be temporarily detached preparatory to the removal or application of a jar. Although there is more than one way by which. this handle may be detachably connected with the key, I have illustrated in the drawings a construction that I have found to be very efficient and desirable, the same appearing most clearly in Figs. 3, 4 and 5. This construction is as follows: The projecting end of the key is provided with a rectangular opening e the open side of which is closed by a plate 8 screwed to the key. the handle is appropriately shaped in cross section to enter this opening and is provided on one side with an off-set e, in which is socured one end of a fiat spring,- c. The other or free end of the latter extends to or near to the end of the handle and is curved or expanded outwardly, as shown in Fig. 5. Thus when the end of the handle is being inserted in the opening the expanded portion of the spring is pressed inward, which expanded portion, however, upon clearing the opening springs outward to its normal position,thereby taking against the opposed corner of the plate a and locking the handle in place. The end of this handle is provided with shoulders, e which abut against the key and limit the movement of the handle when the spring clears the opening, as just mentioned. To disengage the handle from the key the former" is drawn outward with sufficient force to compress the spring by the contiguous corner of the plate.

I claim as my invention 1. The combination with a body or casing provided with an opening in one of its walls, and with soda-containing and discharging devices, of a frame or receptacle movably mounted within the body or casing in respect to said opening, and a jar or jars supported in and provided with a discharge faucet that projects through said frame or receptacle, substantially described.

2. The combination with a body or casing provided with an opening in one of its walls, and with soda containing and discharging devices, of a roller or rest in said body or casing, and a jar-supporting frame or receptacle mounted upon said roller or rest, so as to be movable thereon in respect to the opening, together with a jar supported in, and provided with a discharge faucet that projects through, said frame or receptacle substantially as described.

The combination with a body or casing provided with an opening in one of its walls,

The end ofand with soda containing and discharging devices, of a roller or rest in said body or casing, and a jar-supporting frame or receptacle provided with a transversely grooved bottom mounted upon said roller or rest so as to be movable thereon in respect to the opening, together with a jar supported in, and provided wit-l1 a discharge faucet that projects through, said frame or receptacle substantially as described.

4. The combination with a body or casing provided with an opening in one of its walls, and with soda containing and discharging devices, together with a jar supported in, and provided with a discharge faucet that projects through, said frame or receptacle of a roller or rest in said body or casing, and a jarsupporting frame or receptacle provided with a transversely grooved bottom mounted upon said roller or rest so as to be movable thereon in respect to the opening, and provided with the stop devices, substantially as described.

5. The combination with a body or casing provided with an opening in one of its walls and with soda containing and discharging devices, ot a frame or receptacle movably mounted within the body or casing in respect to said opening, and a jar supported in said frame or receptacle, said jar being provided on its lower end with a discharge faucet that projects through and below the bottom of the frame or receptacle, substantially as described.

6. The combination with a body or casing provided with an opening in one of its walls and with soda containing and discharging devices, of a frame or receptacle movably mounted within the body or casing in respect to said opening, and a jar supported in said frame or receptacle, said jar being provided on its lower end with a discharge faucet that projects through and below the bottom of the frame or receptacle and said faucet being provided with an attachable and detachable handle, substantially as described.

7. The combination with the faucet key provided with an opening in one end thereof, of a handle provided with a lateral spring on one end, which end and spring are adapted to be inserted in said opening and retained therein by the action of the spring, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto affixed my signature in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
