UNITED STATES PATENT OEEICE.

AMOS HOCKETT, OF WILMINGTON,"OHIO.4

IMPROVEMENT IN kPAPER-FILES.

Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. l0l.l,30, dated March 22, 1870.

To all whom it may concern,.-

Be it known that I, AMos HocKETT, of Wiln mington, in the county of Clinton and State of Ohio, have invented a new and valuable Improvement in Reference-Files for Papers; 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 gures of reference marked thereon.

Figure l of the drawings is a representation of a perspective view of my invention. Fig. 2 is a central longitudinal section of the same. Fig. 3 exhibits the manner of connecting the sliding flanges.

My invention relates to means for filing away bills, receipts, and important papers; and it consists in the construction and novel arrangement of devices designed to holdv the papers in a compact and convenient form for ready reference.

The letter A of the drawings designates a case open at the top and upper portion of the front. It is subdivided for alphabetical arrangement by the partitions b b. The upper part of the front of this case is closed by means of the hinged apron c when necessary. To the back of this case is attached the sliding case B by bending their edges together in the manner shown at Fig. 3. rI his case B is subdivided in a similar mannenbut has no front wall, with the exception of a small strip across the bottom, to which the clamping-spring is attached. The rear wall of case A serves for the front of case B.

C designates the hinged cover which closes the tops of both cases.

The case B is prevented from sliding too far down by means of the ledge or stop e. So, also, it is prevented from sliding too far in the other direction by the rod n and pin z.

K K designate springs, one of which is secured in each partition, and serves to clamp the papers together, thereby preventing them from becoming disarranged, or from falling out should the boxbe overturned. This box can be closed and locked, if necessary, when not in actual use. W'hen required for reference, the cover is thrown up, the apron brought down, and the cases separated until the indorsed ends of those in case B are brought into view. The box is made portable by attaching a handle to the cover. A handle is also attached to the bottom of case A. It may be laid horizontally on the table or desk, or may be hung against the wall in an upright position.

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

The reference-case herein described, con` sisting of the sliding compartments A and B, subdivided by the partitions b I), and provided with the clamping springs K K, apron c, and cover C, all constructed and arranged to operate substantially as and for the purposes herein shown and described.

In testimony that I claim the above I have hereunto subscribed my name in the presence of two witnesses.

AMOS HOCKETT.
