' Another important object of the invention is to provide a device of this nature having e durahie structure which is comparatively simple and muy ce manufactured at a low cost, v

With the ehove and numerous other ob# jects in view as will appear as the description progresses, the invention resides in certain novei features ci construction and in the com#` hiuaticn and arrangement or" parts es will be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

Referring to the drawing in detaii it will he seenl that the devices are two in number one for each shoe. Each device may he used upon either shoe and the devices are, therefore, interchangeable. The numeral 1 indicates the hottom plete upon which is mounted a plurality of coii springs 2 which are kpreferably three in number. These coil springs 2 ere held in engagement with the bottoni piate 1 by a strap iron 3 which engages the lower convolutione ci the springs and riveted or otherwise zediyettached tc the plete 1. A top pia'te t is mounted on the springs 2 and strep iron 5 secures the top convolutions of these s AMUSEMENT 'Device 192e. serial No. 634,788. i

rings to the underl surface of the plate 4, t is strap iron being rilveted or otherwise xedly attached to the p ate.A

A foot engaging plate 7 consists of e heel @il section '-8 and a toe section 9. The heel seo- ;tion 8 1s provided with the extension 1 0 et its forward end which is 'adapted to overiie an extension 11 projecting rom the rear end of the toe plate. The projection l0 extends into a slot 12 so as to partially underlie the toe plate as is seen to advantage in Figure 2. The extension 11 is provided with e slot 13 at its end adapted to register with en oper '7d-v ture lli inthe-heel plete 8 so that a bolt 15 may penetrate the aperture and the slot'for y holding 'the sections in edjusted positions whereby the length of the shoe nlate may be varied. It will be noted that this plate is 7@ very similar to that commonly yused upon y .roller skates. This plate 7 may be attached to the shoe by means of suitable straps 16 and 17. The strap 17 referably engages the heel ilange 18 provided)on the heel section 8 of the @d plate While the strap lo engages under the plete 4 und round the toe portion of the shoe. This shoe plate 7 is mounted on top of the top plate d being held in engagement therewith byscrevvs 19 or any other suitable means. @5 lt is preferable to construct the top plate 4 or Woody so that these screws 19 may engage any poriion thereof after the shoe plete 7 hes heenyadjusted to the desired length. f When the devices are secured to the shoes .im of elyoungster he may jump abodt orrun and tlgeqspringe 2 Will eid him in jumping 'and :eiord hlm considerable exercise and amusenlent.
