Specification of Letters Patent.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, Oscnn W. MARSH, a citizen of l the United States, residing at Webster Springs, in the invented a new and useful Improvement in a Ticket Slide-Clip, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a clip adapted especially for the use of conductors who are provided with books containing a number of tickets, a portion of each ticket to be detached and the remainder of the ticket to be left in the book as a stub, and the object of the invention is to enable the conductor to quickly detach a portion of the ticket to be torn off and also to hold the stubs representing tickets already given out from being in the way during the detachment of the remainder of the tickets.

The invention consists of a clip having a straight edge and provided with a hinged cover and turned over ends, the cover of the clip clamping over the end portion of the book cover and the turned over end portions sliding upon the sides of the said book.

In the drawings forming a part of this specification:- Figure 1 illustrates the practical use of the invention. Fig. 2 is a perspective view showing the clip secured to the end portion of a book cover. Fig. 3 is a perspective view showing the end faces of the clip. Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the clip open and detached. Fig. 5 is a section on the line 5-5 of Fig. 2. Fig. 6 is a section on the line 6-6 of Fig. 2. Fig. 7 is a perspective view of a slightly modified form of clip. Fig. 8 is a transverse section through the form shown in Fig. 7.

In these drawings A represents a stiff card, such as are usually employed for the backs of books of checks, tickets, etc, A is the flexible cover for the book and A in dicatcs the tickets bound in the book.

I have designated my clip as a whole, by the reference letter B, and the clip consists of a base plate B adapted to rest transversely across the book and provided with a straight front edge. Immediately to the rear of this edge, rearwardly projecting tongues B are punched out of the base B, and upon the upper face of the said base. At its ends the base B, is bent downwardly to engage the sides of the book and prevent lateral movement of the clip as it slides along the book longitudinally. The upper face of the base B is also provided with upwardly punched tongues B which extend parallel to the front edge of the base. A cover O is hinged as shown at C, to one end of the base, the bent down portion B at its end being cut away to allow for the hinging of the cover and the free end of the cover is bent downwardly to furnish a spring clamping member which fits over and engages the turned down portion B, at that end of the base B as shown in Fig. 5. The cover G is longitudinally slotted as shown at C the said slots alining with the upwardly extending tongues l B of the base.

In Figs. 7 and 8 I have shown a slight modification which consists mainly in hinging the cover adjacent the front edge or side of the base instead of hinging it to one end.

D represents the basehaving the tongues D, punched upwardly therein, and E represents the cover which is slotted as shown at E the slots alining with the tongues D. The base D is bent straight ends as shownat D and the cover E is provided with end extensions E which are adapted to [it over and engage the bent portions D of the base.

To make it more convenient to open the clip, thumb notches E are cut in the free side edge of the cover E. The cover E is hinged to the base preferably by rolling over the front end portions of slits D formed when the tongues D are punched upwardly and the hinged edge of the cover E, is rolled, to form a sleeve for a pintle'rod and cut out at suitable points so that the hinged edge will fit over the sleeves formed on the base D, and the pintle rod E passes through the sleeves formed on the cover and base. I

In use the form of a clip which may be preferred is placed upon the end portion of the cover A, the bent free ends engaging and sliding along the sides of the book formed by the card A and the tickets A". In the form shown at B the tongues B free end of the cover A fitting under the said tongues and the cover will be firmly gripped between the base B and the cover G, by means of the tongues 13* which will perforate the cover or force the slot 0 In the form shown in 7 and 8, the hinged edge of the cover E will answer the purpose of the tongues B and the cover will be gripped in the same manner by the tongues D. When a portion of the ticket is to be detached the conductor has only to slide the clip rearwardly upon the book, that is, toward the bound edges of the ticket and the cover will be curved upwardly in the form of an arch and the clip will also carry rearwardly with it, all of the stubs which may have tickets detached from them, the free ends of the stubs being engaged by the rear edge of the clip base, as it slides rearwardly, and these stubs will also be forced rearwardly curving in an arch, similar to the cover. Thefront straight edge of the clip is brought to the line upon which the ticket is to be detached, and serves the purpose of a ruler and enables the conductor to quickly tear the ticket at the proper point, and along a perfectly straight line. After the portion has'been detached, the clip is allowed to slide back to its normal position, at the opening end of the book, thus permitting the cover and stubs to lie flat. When another ticket is to be torn ofi, and the clip is again moved longitudinally upon the book, a stub of the ticket just detached, will be forced rearwardly by the base with all of the other stubs, and none of the stubs left in the book, will at any time be in the way during the detaching of a ticket.

downwardly at the 7 will act as stops, the

Having thus fully described my invention, whatI claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

1. A clip of the kind described comprising a base plate.

having turned down ends, adapted to engage'the sides of a book, upwardly and rearwardly extending tongues formed on the base plate adapted to fit over the cover of the book and a cover hinged to the base plate having a turned down end. 7

2. A device of the kind described comprising a base plate adapted to slide upon a book of tickets, tongues projecting upwardly and rearwardly from said base plate adapted to lit over the cover of the book, a cover hinged to said cover, the said base plate having" a straight front edge extending transversely across the tickets.

3. A device of the kind described comprising a bas'e'plate having downwardly turned end portions adapted to 'engag'ethc sides-of a bookand to slide thereon, upwardly and fit over the last mentioned tongues and means tongues and means for locking rearwardly extending tongues carried by the said base plate adapted to fit over the cover of the book, tongues carried by the cover adapted to lock it in position upon the base plate.

4. A device of the kind described comprising a base plate having turned down end portions, adapted to engage the "sides of a book, tongues projecting upwardly and rearwardly from said base plate, a cover hinged to said base upon the base plate and having plate adapted to fold slots fitting over the said cover to said base plate for the purpose set forth.
