COTTON-SACK CARRIER.

SPECIFICATION formingpart of Letters Patent No. 471,042, dated March 15, 1892.

Application led March 23, 1891. Renewed February 18, 1892. Serial No. 422,036. (No model.)

invented a new and useful Cotton-Sack Oar! rier, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a cotton-sack carrier.

Heretofore in picking cotton it has been customary to employ cotton-bags having straps at their mouths, which pass around the body of the picker and are dragged along the ground from plant to plant and in the bottom of the furrow. Numerous objections and disadvantages have arisen from this custom and may be brieiiy stated as follows: The picking is to a great extent carried on by children, and the weight of the bag and its contents amount to very considerable, and hence it is a very laborious occupation, not only in dragging the bags along the furrow, but also to the point of weighing and from thence to the cotton-pen, into which the contents of the bags are thrown. Furthermore, the bag soon wears out upon its side and must be frequently patched, so that delay and expenditure of time, cost, and labor results.

Again, wet weather often ensues during the cotton-picking season, and by reason of the fact that a large proportion of cotton is planted on iiat or level ground pools of water collect in the fnrrows and render the dragging of a cotton-bag through the same impracticable, and hence it is that by reason of the same the picking of the cotton is delayed until oftentimes the entire crop is ruined.

The objects of our invention are to overcome the above dificulties, and this in a cheap and simple manner and byl a device readily within the reach of all.

With these objects in view the invention consists in certain features of construction hereinafter specified, and particularly pointed out in the claims.

Referring to the drawings, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a cotton-sack carrier constructed in accordance with our invention, the cotton-sack being mounted thereon. Fig. 2 is a perspective in detail of the carrier. Fig. 3 is a Vertical longitudinal section of the same. Fig. 4 is a front elevation. Fig. 5 is a longitudinal section through the front central end of the truck.

Like numerals of reference indicate like parts in all the figures of the drawings.

In practicing our invention we employ a series of longitudinal bars 2, arranged parallel to each other and having their front ends shortened and connected by a curved metal strip 3. The bars are connected upon their under sides near their front and rear ends by cross-bars 4, and upon their upper sides at their rear extremities are provided with inclined blocks 5, to the faces of which is secured a cross-strip 6. Bearings 7 are formed in depending stirrups 8, which terminate in opposite clips 9, securely bolted to the outer side bars 2, and in the bearings there is journaled an axle'lO, carrying a pair of wheels 11, located between the two outer bars 2 at each side of the carrier. These wheels are covered by hoods 12, located upon the upper side of the carrier. To the rear cross-bar 4 are secured scraper-plates 13, the ends of which depend and are bifurcated to loosely embrace the peripheries of the wheels.

A pair of standards 14 are hinged or pivoted, as at 15, to the under side and front end of the central bar 2, and in the free ends of the standards, at which points are formed bearings, is journaled the axle 16 of a wheel 17. A curved segmental frame or bar 17a is secured to the under side of the central bar 2 and is located between the depending standards. This bar is provided at intervals with perforations 18, into register with any one of which may be thrown a si-milar perforation 19, formed in the two standards 14, and through the perforations a pin 2O may be passed, thus either raising or lowering the front end of the carrier, as may be desired, and in accordance with the location of the perforations through which the pin is passed. The wheel is also provided with a perforation 2l, which may be thrown into register with one of the perforations in the perforated segmental bar and by a pin 22, passed through the perforations, may be locked against movement, and thus adapted to slide over the ground in the manner of an ordinary runner, which latter, if desired, I may substitute for the wheel.

To the upper side of the front end of the IOO e y time central bar 2 of the series is secured by a loop a snap-hook 2l. 25 designates an or dinary cotton-receiving bag provided at its mouth with the usual strap 2G and upon its under side with the ring 27 for engaging.;1 the snap-bool; of the carrier. The bag, it will be observed, is inuch longer than the carrier, so that a portion of its length is free to bend to the movements of the picker.

In operation the strap is placed around the body of the picker in the usual way and the ringr of the bag engaged by the snap-hook, that portion ol' the bag in rear of the ringr resting` upon the carrier. It going downhill the wheel is locked against rotation by rneans of a pin before mentioned, so that the wheel acts as a brake and overcomes the inclination et the carrier to roll upon tbe picker. \Vhen, however, going uphill, the pin is removed, so that the draft is decreased and the wheel is also raised and lowered in the nianuer heretofore mentioned, so as to elevate or depress the front end of the carrier to suit the pickel'.

By our invention the bag,` and its contents are supported above and out of Contact with the ground, thus avoiding friction and wear and increasing` the period of utility of the bag. Children inay readily transport their `lilled bags to the weighing-point and the cotton-pen, and the labor occasioned by the necessity ol dragging about the bag and its contents is avoided.

Having` described our invention, what we claim isl. The combination, with a portable truck having a hoolc,of abag longer than the truck and provided near its middle with a ring' `for ,engaging the hook and beyond the saine and truck -with a strap adapted to be passed around the body of a person, substantially as specified.

2. The combination, with the truck and supporting-wheels for the saine, of a bag extendingl beyond the truck and terininatingin a strap and connecting devices between the intermediate bag and the front of the truck, substantially as specified.

3. The combination, with the series of longitudinal bars, the nieta-l strap connecting` the ends thereof, the transverse bars located near the front and rear ends and upon the under side of the longitudinal bars, the opposite dependin,r stirrups havingbearings, the axle mounted in the bearings and carrying ground wheels, the perforated depending standards hinged at their 'upper ends and provided with peri'orations, the wheel journaled between the lower ends of the stand ards, the perforated bar mounted between the pivoted standards, the pin for adj listing the standards upon the perforated bar, and a second pin for locking the wheel by beine,r passed through the saine and the locking-bar, the hook located upon the upper side of the truck, the bag, and the ring secured to the bag' and engaging the hook, substantially as specified.

si. 'lh e herein-d escribed cotton -sacl carrier, eoniprisinpf a truck mounted on wheels and provided at its iront end with a depending pivoted standard carryingr a wheel, means for adjusting the standard in the are of a circle, aud inclined blocks at the rear end of the truck, as set forth.

In testimony that we claiin the foregoing as our own we have hereto ailixed our signatures in presence of two witnesses.
