SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 28,203, dated January 18, 1898.

Application lled December 7, 1897. Serial No. 661,118. Term of patent 7 years.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that LCHAELEs J. SHE tvEE'roN, a citizen ofthe Un ited States, residing at Austell,in the county of Cobb and State of Georgia, have invented a new and original Design for a Type-Cabinet, of which the following is a specification.

The material features of my design for a type-cabinet are an oblong base having in one of its faces a series of ledges or steps occupyingdiiferenthorizontal and vertical planes, a series of circular pockets in each step or ledge, and end pieces having their curved front edges extended beyond the ledges or steps of said base.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of a type cabinet, showing my design. Fig. 2 is an end elevation thereof. Fig. 3 is a vertical cross-sectional View.

As shown by the accompanying drawings7 my design fora type-cabinet consists of a substantially oblong base l, having in its exposed face a series of horizontal ledges 2, 3, l, and 5, arranged one in rear and above the other in step-like order. The front face G of the base below the lowerrnost step 2 is vertical and iniperforate. The ledges are in horizontal parallel planes, and the faces of the base between the ledges or steps are vertical. The ledges 0r steps extend throughout the length of the base. In cross-section the base is ohambered or hollowed at 7 and on the rear side of the base is the vertical back wall 8.

In each horizontal ledge or step is a series of circular pockets 9, which are spaced at suitable intervals throughont the length of the ledge or step and which open through the upper exposed face of the step. As there are a series of these steps and as each step has a series of pockets, my newly-designed base is thus provided with a plurality of series of pockets which open through the exposed upper faces of the steps or ledges.

The flat end pieces l() are applied to the ends of the base and the straight horizontal and vertical edges of each end piece are flush with the bottoni and rear wall of the base. The upper edge of the end piece is curved downward and forward from the rear of the base to the front Jthereof, and such curved edge of said end piece projects above the steps or ledges of the base. The curved edges of the flat end pieces are substantially equidistant from the front angles 0r corners of the series of ledges or steps except at the lower step or ledge, at which point the edges of the end pieces are Hush with the angle or corner of the step 2 and the front face 6 of the base.

IVhat I claim isw The design for a type-cabinet herein shown and described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto aixed my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
