@nicht tartes-@aint @fitte ADDISON Banlieues# oAMAN'oHE, IOWA.

Laim-8 Parent No., 78,566, ma June 2, 1868.



Be it known that I, ADDISON BAKER, of Camanchetownship, Clinton county, Iowa, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Loading Hay and Grain; and'I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference boing had to the accompanying drawings, and to letters of reference marked thereon.` l

The nature of my invention consists in so arranginga crane or derrick on a wagon, and adjusting the ropes,

blocks, and sheaves, that the moving of the wagon will raise'the weight to the requisite height to put it von the wagon, thereby avoidingrthe tedious and laborious operation of pitching the hay and grain, or any other thing desirable to load, I l

To enable others to make and use my invention, I will proceed to carefully describe its construction and operation.

Figure 1 represents a perspective view of the device. `Figure 2 represents a sectional view, showing hollour post and sheaves. Figure `3 represents the drumewheel in section. i In`the various lgures the same letters refer tothe same parts. A represents the tongs, or-grappling-irons, or fork. B represents the rope or cord. C, I), E, and O, represent the sheaves for rope topass over. F represents the drum on wheel. l G Gr G represent the wheels of wagon. H represents the axle-tree to wagon. J, cross-beam to hold post T. K represents a. piece bolted to bed ofwagon, to hold sheave'c and stop L.' L represents stop to hold the rope B. N represents hand grasping rope to hold it taut on drum F. p O, in fig. 3, represents sheave under the bed of wagon, directly under the tube or hole in post T.

P represents a loop in rope B, passing through the arrnsof grapplings A. v v R, step for post T.. v

S, body of wagon. T, hollow post to enclose rope and sustain arm-Z. U, brace to sustain arm.

W, tongue. v New, the operationV of my invention is as follows: Take an ordinary wagon and construct what vI call a. friction-drum, attaching it to the near hind wheel in any convenient but firm manner. Construct a hollow standard or post of wood'or metal. To the top of this post attach anA arm, Jfirmly bracing it, and iit two sheaves in it, one directly over the aperture or tube in post T, the otherin end of arm, as at D. Set the post T at or near the centre of the wagon, in a hollow step, so it will berm, yet turn easily, and it a sheave on the under eide, so the rope, as it comes through the tube in post T, will pass over it. 'i Now, fit and fasten a. block iirmly to underside of wagonfbed, letting it'project on near slde 1n this block, marked K in drawing. Have a' sheavje, C, also von this block. Have a stop in drawing marked L.

Then attach the rope to the fork or tongs, and passit over the sheaves D and E,`down through the tube 1n the post T, and ove'r thesheaves O-.and Q; then twice around the drum F, and through the notch 1n stop L. In this end of rope have a knot, so as to prevent the end from passing through the notch, and have the length of rope so that usthe knotbrings up against stop L the tongs, 4fork, or grappling-iron willJust reach the ground. Now, to use this device, open the tongs or grapplngircns, and insert them in a cock'of hay or shock of grain. Grasp the end of the rope at L; hold rm enough to prevent the rope from slipping on drum F- Start the team, and as the wagon moves along, the turning of the wheel will raise the weight to the requisite height.

l The man Aon lagon grasps it,-and swings the crane or afin Z soa's to bringr the weight into the place wanted. He

gives ntce to the operato'r on thd'ground, who releasesA his -holld on ',th'o rope, which at once renders on the drumFythe weight'drolpi'ngatome-just where wanted, thus saving the labor of ptchng'or rolling to load.

This 4 device may beA usedto fraise wig'hts'fof any kidon to al vWagon.

What I clairfas my invzento'n, and'desite to secure by Letters Patent, is

The drgm F, 'l-range@ outside of the whel G,.in'combii1a.tion with the sheaves C and 0 and spop L, for taking Ain' the-"slackof the rope I B, essentially'as shown and dcribd.
