SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 645,199, dated March 13, 1900.

Application filed April 25, 1898. Serial No. 678,701. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern: 7

Be it known that I, Fnnonnron H. BROOKS, a citizen of the United States, residing at Detroit, in the county of Wayne, State of. Michigan, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Bag-Holders; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact descriptionof the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it ap- I0 pertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to bag-holders ;'and it consists in the construction and arrangement of parts hereinafterfully set forth,and pointed out in the claim.

The objects of the invention are to provide simple and efficient means for holding a bag, so as to facilitate the filling thereof with grain,

vegetables, and like articles, in which the arrangement is such as to readily support the bag and retain the mouth thereof widely open, to readily direct into the open mouth of the bag that with which the bag is to be filled,

to provide for maintaining in an upright posit-ion the standard'whieh supports the bag,

so that it may be used where the surface of the ground is uneven, as in a field, and to provide for readily attaching the bag to and detaching it from the supporting-standard. These objects are attained by the device illus trated in the accompanying drawings, in which Figurel is a perspective view of a bagholder showing my invention. Fig. 2 is a like view showing the bag in position thereon to be filled. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the funnel detached. Fig. 4 is aperspective view of the top of the standard, showing a supporting-ring from which the funnel is withdrawn.

Referring to the letters of reference, A dos ignates a vertical standard preferably formed of metal and being of the requisite height.

Formed integral with the bottom of the standard and projecting at right angles thereto is a base-piece a, the sides of which stand vertically, so as to present its narrow edge downward. Crossing this base-piece d at right angles is a second piece 27, which is like piece c in formation and also presents its narrow edge downward. These cross-pieces a and b at the bottom of the standard A serve as a base to maintain said standard in an upright position when resting upon a door or other hard surface, as shown in Fig. 2, and are adapted to be forced into the ground to find a level, so as to maintain the standard A erect when in use in the field, as shown in Fig. 1.

Projecting from the upper end of the standard A is a bent horizontal portion carrying an integral ring 13, which extends horizontally over the cross-pieces of the base and is provided upon its periphery with a series of pins 0, adapted to engage the mouth of the bag 0, which is drawn around said ring B and folded, so that the lap (1 thereof will be secured by one of the pins 0, as clearly shown in Fig. 2.

D designates a funnel having an annular 7o spout E, which is adapted topass through the ring B and direct the grain or other substance into the mouth of the sack.

The height of the standard A is such that when the sack is hung upon the pins of the ring B the bottom will rest upon the crosspieces of the base, so that the weight of the sack and its contents will not be brought entirely upon said pins.

This improved bag-holder issimple and inexpensive, enabling the bag to be readily attached thereto and detached therefrom, while its construction is such that it may be readily moved from place to place, and is especially adapted for use in feed-stores, where the filling of grain-sacks constitutes the greater por-.

tion of manual work.

Upon the standard A is a retaining-hook e, adapted to hold a number of strings f, with which the mouth of the bag is closed after 0 the bag is filled.

Having thus fully set forth my invention, what I claim is In a bag-holder, the combination of the ver tical standard comprising a flat metallic bar 5 having its lower end bent edgewise at a right angle, forming of said bent portion the base piece a comprising athin flat bar of consider able width whose sides stand vertically and whose thin edgeis presented downwardly, the [00 base-piece I) also comprising a thin flat bar united to and crossing said base-piece cedgewise at right angles with its edge presented adapted to receive and hold the mouth of the downwardly, said base pieces standing with bag. 10 theirlower edges in the same horizontal plane, In testimony whereof I sign this specificasaid vertical standard at its upper end havtion in the presence of two Witnesses.

ing a portion bent horizontally, and an inte- FREDERICK H. BROOKS. gral ring formed in said bent portion at the Witnesses: upper end of the standard projecting horizon- E. S. WVHEELER,

tally above said base, said ring having pins M. A. MARTIN.
