SPECIFICATION forming part cf LettersPatent No. 524,041, dated August '7, 1894.

Application filed March 2 9, 1 8 94:.

To aZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, WILLARD D. HARMON and EDWARD G. KELOUGE, citizens of the United States, residing at Beloit, in the county of Rock and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bag-Holders, of which the following is a specification. I

The object of this invention is to construct abag-holder supported upon carrying Wheels, and having a yoke pivoted to the end of\ the platform, and to this yoke is pivoted a second yoke, between which the bag is held.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1, is a perspective view of the upper end of the holder showing the yokes in their open position. Fig. 2, is a perspective view of the complete bag-holder.

The bag-holder platform 1, is of rectangular form suitably stayed by cleats 2, on its under side, and has supporting wheels 3, secured to its lower end, and about midway of its length to its under face are pivoted legs 4., which may fold under the platform, abar 5, extends across the lower front end of the platform. To the upper end of the platform and transversely thereof is secured a cross bar 6, hav; ing its ends 7, in handle form, and to the upper face of this cross bar are secured hinges 8, the other leaves of the hinges are secured to the base 9, of the inner yoke 10. This yoke is provided with cars 11, located near the ends of the base, and to these cars are pivoted ears 12,extendingfrom the ends of the outer yoke 13, and to the outer surfaceof the outer yoke is secured a handle 14. The upper surface of the inner yoke is provided with a depression 15. When in use the bag is placed over the inner yoke and turned into the position shown at Fig.2, the end of the bag being held on its lower side between the under face of serial NO. 505558. (No model.)

the base 9, and the upper face of the platform, and the upper edge of the bag will extend slightly over the edge of the inner yoke. The outer yoke is then moved upon its pivotal connection ,from the position shown at Fig. 1, to that shown at Fig. 2, which will pass outside of the end of the bag, and overlie the in ner yoke, thereby holding the upper portion of the bag between the two yokes, the bag will lie upon the platform and after the bag has been filled, the outer yoke is withdrawn from over the inner yoke which will release the open end of the bag, the handle 14., and depression 15,'form the means for separating the yokes.

When the yokes are notin use they may be folded against the face of the cross bar 6, by reason of their pivotal connection therewith. The handles '7, form the means by which the holder may be moved about, and when used as a truck the legs 4., are folded under the platform. I

We claim as our invention-- A bag holder consisting of a platform, a main yoke comprising a base and a curved portion having a hinged connection with the platform the curved portion provided with ears near its connection with the base, and having an .inwardly extending central depression, a second yoke provided with ears at its ends, pivot pins connecting the ears of the two yokes, this second yoke overlying the main yoke when in its closed position, and a handle extending from the second yoke which 'in connection with the central depression
