SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 507,672, dated October 31, 1893. Application filed January 10, 1893- Serial No. 457.896. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, CHARLES E. BROOKS, a citizen of the United States, residing in Newark, county of Essex, and State of New Jersey, haveinvented certain new and usefulImprovements in Attachments for Ticket-Punches; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being bad to the accompanying drawings, and to letters of referencemarked thereon, which form a part of this specification.

This invention relates to a new and useful improvement in ticket punches and it consists in providing on one of the jaws of the punch a receptacle for the punched out portions of the tickets to prevent the same from scattering over the floor of the car.

It consists also in the combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter set forth and claimed.

In the drawings Figure 1 is aside elevation of a ticket punch embodying my improvement, the box or receptacle being shown in section. Fig. 2 is a top plan view of the punch with the receptacle in position, and Fig. 3 is a perspective View of the receptacle removed from the punch.

In the drawings A represents the lower jaw of the punch divided at the end into the upper and lower portions 0. and b respectively by the horizontal slot 0, in which slot the ticket to be punched is inserted. The upper or punching jaw cl is pivotally secured to the lower jaw A in the usual Well known manner, and is provided at itsinner end with a removable punch section e, adapted, when the jaw d is depressed to enter the conical hole f in the upper portion a of jaw A and to out the ticket against the cutting edge g thereof.

The operation and construction of this form of punch are well known and require no detailed description.

Upon the upper portion a of jaw A is removably secured a receptacle or box h, provided at its top with an aperture 2' of smaller diameter than and coinciding with the aperture fin said portion a. The depending sides of this receptacle fit over and closely upon the sides of the portion a and are provided at their lower ends With projections or prongs 70 adapted to be bent under the under surface of portion a and thus secure said receptacle to the punch. By preference the receptacle is larger at the rear of the punch substantially as shown in Figs. 1 and .3 of the drawings. By the attachment of this receptacle to the punch, the clippings from the tickets are prevented from flying over the floor and furniture of the car and are confined in the rear of the receptacle until a suitable place and time fol-their removal is found. The aperture in the top of the receptacle enables the conductor to see the ticket before it is punched and to thus determine the proper portion of the ticket to be punched. The receptacle may be made of suitable size to fit any punch and can bequickly adjusted or removed therefrom.

Having thus described my invention, what- I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

In a ticket punch, the combination of a slotted jaw having in its upper end the cutting edge and aperture of the punch, with a removable receptacle placed over said upper end of said slotted jaw, and having an aperture of smaller diameter than and registering with the aperture in said upper end of the slotted jaw, whereby the ticket may be inspected prior to punching while in the slotted jaw, and the punched out portion of the ticket deposited in said receptacle, substantially as described.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing I
