8 1-: a crane.

Application filed August 21, 1922. Serial no. 583,196.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that 1, German R. Crew, a citizen of the United States of America, and resident Fort Wayne, in the county 5 ofAllenand State of Indiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Service Cabinets, of which the following is a specification. I

This invention relates to improvements in service cabinets especially for the reception of household supplies as they are delivered by tradesmen, and the object of the improvement is to afford receiving apparatus for merchandise which will prevent unauthorizedremoval of the merchandise therefrom when deposited and which will prevent deliv erymen from having access to goods previously deposited in the receptacle.

These objects are accompanied by the construction illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which Fig. 1 is a side elevation of the apparatus shown partly broken away and in section, and including the doorway of a building through which access is had to the back of the apparatus;

Fig. 2 is an'elevation showing the forward end of one of the receiving drawers;

Fig. 3 is an elevation showing the forward end of another receiving drawer, a portion being broken away; and

Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view showing a section through the lower part of the cabinet on the line H of Fig. 1. The characters appearing in the description refer to parts shown in the drawings and designated thereon by corresponding characters.

. In the construction herein set forth as an m example of the invention, a cabinet 1 is pro vidcd in the form of a refrigerator having an ice chamber 2 which is closed at its back by a rear door 3 and at its front by a'similar door 4. The cabinet has also a chamher 5 above the ice chamber, the front of which is closed by a door 6. Also, the cabinet has. a chamber 7 beneath the ice chamber, the forward end of which is closed by a door 8.

In the chamber 5 is arranged a drawer 9 which is introduced into the chamber through the back of the cabinet, and also, in the chamber 7 is arranged a drawer 10 which likewise is introduced through the back of the cabinet.

uThe drawer 9 is constructed so that its forward end 11 and one of its sides 12 are normally open, and a sliding curtain 13 is arranged in a manner to close the side of the drawer when in one position, and the w forward end of the drawer when in its opposite position. llhe bottom of the drawer is composed of a series of slats 14, each of which has along its bottom a strip 15, the sides of which project slightly beyond the corresponding edges of the slat. The slats are spaced apart, and when the drawer is in place in the chamber 5, the slats extend alternatingly between a corresponding series of slats 16 in the bottom of the chamber and the extending edges of the strips 15 fit in corresponding grooves 17 made in the sides of the strips 16 for their reception The slats 16 are so proportioned as to pro ject upwardly to a plane above that of the slats 14 which form the bottom of the drawer 9.

The drawer 10 has a normally open top 18 and forward end 19 and is provided with a sliding curtain 20 arranged in a manner w to close the top of the drawer when in one position, and the forward end of the drawer when in its opposite position. v The bottom of the drawer 10 is composed of a series of slats 14: each of which has along its bottom a strip 15', the sides of which project lightly beyond the corresponding edges of the slat. As in the former instance the slats are spaced apart, and when the drawer is in place in the chamber 7 the slats exw tend alternatingly between a corresponding series of slats 16' in the bottom of the chamber with the extending edges of the strips fitting in corresponding grooves 17' made -in the sides of the slats 16'. Also, the tops 935 of the slats 16' extend above those of the slats 14 of the drawer. The rear ends of the slats H6 and 16' are tapered downwardly so that their rear ends will extend no higher than the tops of the slats in the correspond- 3% ing drawers.

On the forward upper end of the drawer till It) is a stop 21 adaptfi to prevent complete withdrawal of the drawer by coming into contact with a bar 21 which is fixed upon the inner face of the back wall of the cabinet. Also, the outer end of the curtain 20 has an upwardly extending flange 22 adapted to be engaged by the lower end of the plate 21' when the drawer is shoved into the chamber 7 so that the curtain will be drawn into position for closing the top of the drawer and opening the forward end thereof.

In using the. invention the cabinet I is placed with its back against the wall 23 at the doorway 24 thereon so that access may be had to the drawers and the back door 3 by opening the door 25. Ice is supplled to the ice chamber in the customary manner through the back door 3. Such articles as bottles of milk, packages of meat, etc., are delivered to the cabinet by withdrawing the drawer 10 and shovin the curtain forwardly to open the top of t e drawer which also have the eilect of closing the forward end of the drawer. The articles 26 to be delivered are placed in the drawer upon the slats 1d and the drawer is then shoved into the chamber 7 As the drawer is closed the articles are moved onto the slats 16 upon which they rest. When the drawer 10 is again opened the articles remain within the chamber upon the slats 16 and when the curtain is shoved inwardly so as to open the top of the drawer. the forward end of the drawer is closed thereby which prevents accessthrough the rear of the cabinet to the articles pre viously deposited in the chamber.

Additional articles may be delivered in a simlar manner as in the first instance until the capacity of the chamber has been reached.

The drawer 9 is utilized in a manner similar to that employed in using the drawer 10 except that the articles are introduced through the open side of the drawer instead of thetop.

By thus constructing and operating the invention goods may be received from deliverymen without the personal attendance of the purchaser and without the deliveryrnen having access to the goods previously delivered, and withdrawal of delivered goods from the back of the cabinet is prevented. It is the intention that the oods delivered as hereinbefore described shal be removed from the cabinet as required from the front doors.

What I claim is 1. A service cabinet for the reception of supplies comprising a cabinet having a chamber therein; adoor closing the chamher; a drawer extending into the chamber from the back of the cabinet; a series of stationary slats in the bottom of the chamber, each slat having a lon 'tudinal groove in each side thereof, said rawer having a seneonate ries of slats forming the bottom thereof, each slat having lateral projections fitting in the grooves of the corresponding stationary slats, the tops of the stationary slats projecting slightly above the plane of the slats in the drawer; a curtain movably arranged in the curtain to be moved into position to,

close the to of the drawer and open the forward end t ereof when the drawer is shoved into the chamber.

2. A service cabinet for the reception of supplies comprising a cabinet having one or more chambers therein; means for closing or opening said chambers at the front of the cabinet; a drawer extending into each of said chambers from the back of the cabinet; a series of slats spaced apart forming the bottom of each drawer, said slats each having a lateral projection on each side thereof; a series of stationary slats spaced apart arran ed in the bottom of each chamber, said s ats having grooves in their sides for the rece tion of the projections on the slats of the corresponding drawer, the tops extending in a plane above the tops of the slats of the corresponding drawer; and a movable curtain in each drawer adapted to selectively close its forward end or its receiving 0 ening accordingly as adjustably positione 3. In a device of the class described, a repository; a series of stationary slats s aced apart and arranged in the bottom of t 'e repository; and a movable member including a series of slats extending interveningly between the stationary slats, the upper surface of the stationary slats being higher than the slats of the movable member.

l. In a device of the class described, a reository having a supporting means in its ottom for goods placed therein; and a movable member extending into the repository provided with means for closing the same, the bottom of the movable member having supporting means for goods placed therein and extending in a plane lower than the su porting means in the repository, so that t e goods deposited in the movable member will be automatically transferred therefrom onto the supporting means in the repository when tbhe repository is closed by the movable mem- 5. A service cabinet for the reception of supplies, comprising a repository; a supporting means in the bottom of the re ository for sustaining the supplies receive therein; a movable receptacle extending into the repository; supporting means in the bottom of the receptacle for supplies placed therein, the supporting means in sai receptacle extending in a plane lower than the supporting Ill!) tacle is open.

means in the repository so that when the receptacle is moved into the repository the supplies placed into the receptacle will become automatically deposited upon the sup- 5 porting means in the repository; and means for closing the repository when the recep- In testimony whereof I afiix my signature 1n presence of two witnesses.
