Lette/rs Patent N0.- 9S,553, dated January 4, 1870.


- The Schedule referred to in these Letters Patent and making part of the same.

To all whom 'it may oon-cern Be it known that I, J OHN M. BURKE, of Dansville,

in the county of Livingston, and State of New York,4

have invented a new and valuable Improvement in Bag-Holders; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the' construction and operation of' the same, reference being had to the annexed drawings, making a part of this specification, and to the letters and 4iigures of reference marked thereon. y

Figure 1, of the drawing, isa representation ofthe clamping-device of my bag-holder in perspective.

Figure 2 is a vertical central section ot' my invention, showing bag in place.

Myinveut-ion relates to a means for holding sacks or bags whilst being iilled, and consists, mainly, in the construction and novel arrangement ofdevices whereby this object is satisfactorily accomplished.

` The letter A, of the drawings, represents a'truck, with wheels a. y

Hooks b b' are fastened luto the frame of the truck, on which lodges the bar4 c' of the bag-holder.

The bagfholder C consists oi three bars, o, o', and o", connected at'the euds'by the cheeks B B, to which are pivoted the clamps (l d.

M y invention is thus operated:

lThe mouth of the-sack, which is to bevlledfis en;

veloped about the bars o and o, and cheeks B B. The bag-holder is then allowed to drop. Being held by the hooks bb', it`will, by means of the bar c edge or hem will be secured by bringing down on it the clamps d d, which press it tightly against the bar o. It is now firmly held, with month open, ready for tillin means of its handles F F,'the truck A is rolled forward to the filling-spout, the sack or bag filled, and easily and quickly removed on its truck.

By the use of several such trucks, one may be always ready, with its open sack, to supply the place of that removed, so that 11o time need be lost.

The bag is easily removed from the holder, by raising the clamps d ll. It falls endwise on the platform A', of the truck, is quickly sewn up and removed.

What I claimas my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

The bars c, c', and c", clamps d, cheeks B, and hooks b', in combination wit-h the truck A, constructed and arranged to operate substantially as and for the purposes specified.

' 1n testi'mony that Iclaim the above, I have hereunto subscribed my name, `in the presence oi' two wit\ nesses. i v
