To all "whom it may concern."

Be 1t known that I, ANDREW M. ERNS- BERGER, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county of Newv York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cachou-Holders, of which the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawing.

My invention relates especially to recep tacles or holders for cachous, pills or any article ofa kindred nature which it is desired to deliver from the holder one at a time, and has for its vobject the provision of a cheap, simple and effective device. of this class.

lTo attain the desired end, my invention consists in certain novel and useful combinations'ouai-rangements of parts and peculiarities'of construction and operation, all of which will be hereinafter first fully descril'ied and then pointed out in -.thefclzlint In the drawing, .Figure 1 is a plan view of a holder embodying my invention. Fig. 2 is a cross-sectional View at line aa of Fig.

Similar numerals of reference, wherever they occur, indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

body 1 by an eyelet 5. Y

6 is an car or projection at the periphery of the disk 4.

7 is a perforation or opening in the disk.

8 represent-s cachous or pellets within the cavities 2.

When constructed and arranged in accordance with the foregoing description, the operation of my device is as follows: Cachous or other pellets are placed within the cavities, and the disk 4 turned so as to prevent the escape of a pellet. If it is desired to release, one of the pellets, the disk is turned, by means ofthe ear 6, so as to cause the perforation 7 to register with one of the cavities 2, thus permitting the escape of but one of the pellets, the others being held in place, and this manipulation may be continued at pleasure, insuring the delivery of but one pellet at a time, and this operation may be accomplished while the device is heldl in one hand, the disk being moved by the thumb. l

' Having now fully described my invention what l claim as new therein, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is:

"As an article of manufacture, a cachou holder in which is comprised a body portion provided with a receptacle for cachous, a

disk secured to the back of said body, a movable disk havlng a perforation therein, and

carrying a manipulating ear projecting beyond the periphery of thc body, and an eyelet passing through the two disks and bod and on which the movable disk/is rotatably mounted.
