Speccation of Letters Patent.

Patented fang, 2;, ltild.

tppleaton filed July 3, 1909. Serial No. 505,286.

To all lwhom it may concern.'

Be it known that I, CARY C. il/'itesm a citizen of the United States, residing at Denver, in the county of Denver and State of Colorado, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Garbage and Ash Receivers, of which the following is a specication, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawing.

This invention relates to sanitary garbage, ash, and other receptacles, and the-principal object of the same 1s to provide a receptacle which may be sunk within the ground and which is provided with a novel type of lid or cover by means of which all odors are prevented from escaping' from the receptacle. y

' Another object of the invention is to provide a receptacle or container in which the refuse is kept in a pail supported Within said container and which is sealed by the lid or cover thereot.`

Still another object of the invention is to provide the pail with a novel type of bail attaching by means of which the bail thereof is connected to the interior of the pail and which, when not in use, may be forced Within the pail so that it Will not interfere with the closing movement of the said lid or cover.

Other and further objects and advantages of the invention will be readily apparent from the following detailed description when taken in connection with the accompanying sheet of drawing wherein a prefcrred and practical embodiment ot the invention has been shown.

' Referring to said drawings-Figure l is a perspective view of the sanitary refuse receptacle, lthe lid or cover thereoil being lfig. 2 is a central vertical sectional view, the lid or cover being shown closed. Fig. 3 is a fragmentary sectional View of an upper portion of the pail showing the manner of forming the bail receiving ears thereon.

Referring to said drawings by numerals, l designates a container preferably cylindrical and having an o en bottoni the edge of which is thickenc( as indicated at 2 to reinforce the same. l`he vtop portion of the container is also reinforcedadjacent its edge, as indicated at 3. n arm 4; projects ont- Wardly and upwardly 'fromsaid upper rein forcement 3, the upper portion of said arm extending vertically and in the same plane as the body of the container and forms ai stop 5, as will presently appear. The free upper end ot said arm is thickened and rrounded and is grooved at its central por- -said reduced portion being Weighted as in-l dicated at S), said Weight preferably being formed by increasing the thickness of the material so that the saine depends from the bottom of the end of said reduced portion..

rlhe intermediate portion ot the under surface of said reduced portion is provided with a pendent pivot ear l() adapted to surround the pivot 6. Directly opposite the said reduced portion of the lid or cover,

the edge thereof is provided with a pendent integral spring latch ll the end portion of which is bentupon itself and inturned to form a lid-lifting handle l2.

A refuse pail 13 the body of which may be of the usual tapering formation has its upper edge outturned to form an outstanding annular holding flange" le which engages over the upper edge of the container l so that said pail may be supported in a pendent position Within said container'. Adjacent the upper edge o said body of the pail, the material thereof is slitted and bent inwardly to provide oppositely disposed bail ears l5 each having an opening 16 through which the hookshaped ends 17 of the bail .18 is attached. The bail 18 may be' of the usual wire rod or other suitable material and is ot such a size that it may be readily rocked on itsl pivotal connection with said ears to permit it to be placed within the pail and out of the way of the lid or cover of the container when the same is closed ontd the holding flanges of said pail, as clearly 'shown 1n Fig. 2.

lt will be seen from the foregoing' that if desired the container may be sunk into the ground with its upper portion substantially flush with the surface thereof so that the pail 13 may be readily removed therefrom when the cover is raised. lt will alsobe seen that when said lid or cover is raised, the outstanding weight thereof will contact with the stop 5 so as to limit the opening move-- meut of said lid or cover, Another prominent feature of the invention is 1n the manlill 'v geen tim?, by progect ing h@ same invmrfjy' :n flmpe and @heup 1s provided im" (im, 055mg; oii sind ball u s; fue, external @Ver im @penmgs thereul wardy and upwardly therefrom and carrying za. pvot at its @mixer and, a lid. or @ovm having an outstanding pv; 13:11: adaptef. fm engagement with said pi'-,f0, Weighted pendent p'ofton adjacent said pivot add to Con'm with said fum in@ lmi,"

In testimmy whereof I hereunto ax my Signature in. presence of two Wtnesss.
