SPEOIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 580,731, dated April 13, 1897.

Application filed January 18, 1897. Serial No. 619,674:- (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Beit known that I, JULIUS SoHoLz, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at Pittsburg, in the county of Allegheny and State of Pennsylvania, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Paper-Holders, of which the following is a specification, reference being bad therein to the accompanying drawings.

This invention relates to certain new and useful improvements in paper-holders in general, and more particularly to newspaperholders, and has for its object to construct a holder that will permit the free movement of the leaves of the paper.

The invention further aims to provide simple and effective means for placing and fastening the papers in position; furthermore, that will hold the paper in such a manner as to have the entire page before the reader.

Still further objects of my invention are to provide a holder that will be extremely simple in its construction, strong, durable, and effectual in its operation, and comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.

With the above and other objects in view the invention finally consists in the novel c011- struction, combination, and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more specifically described, and particularly pointed out in the claims.

In describing the invention in detail reference is had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, and wherein like letters of reference indicate similar parts throughout the several views, in which- Figure 1 is a front elevation of my improved paper-holder. Fig. 2 is a front view of a portion of the side rod, showing the securingsleeve in posit-ion to remove the fasteningspring. Fig. 3 is a similar view showing the sleeve in the fastening or holding position. Fig. 4 is a horizontal sectional view taken on the line X X of Fig. 2. Fig. 5 is a detail view of the securing-spring and side rod.

Referring now to the drawings by reference-letters, or represents the handle, I) the shank carried by same, and c the upwardlyextending center bar or rod. To said rod or bar 0 and to the shank b is connected a frame d, having the semicircular upper and lower extremities d d. To the opposite side of said shank and center bar or rod is attached semicircular portions e e, connecting the side rod f. Said side rod f is provided on its outer face with a groove g, extending in alinement therewith, said groove being adapted to receive a spring-rod h, pivotally secured at 70 near the upper end of the rod f, the free end of said spring being held in position by means of a sleeve Z, secured to the rod f by a chain m, said sleeve being provided with a slot or to receive the spring. The side rod is provided at its upper end with an eyelet 0, which may be employed for hanging the holder when not in use.

The newspaper or other paper which is to be held is placed between the side rod f and the spring h, the sleeve Z having been previously turned so as to bring the slot n in alinement with the spring, thus releasing the same from its engagement with the sleeve. the paper has been placed between the spring and side rod the spring is fastened by inserting in the slot 71 and turning the sleeve so as to hold the same, as will be readily apparent.

It will be readily apparent that the. holder may be made of any desired size, so as to conform to the size of the paper on which the same is to be employed, and that minor changes may be made in the details of construction without departing from the general spirit of my invention.

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

1. In a holder, the combination of the handle carrying a shank having a center rod eX- tending upward therefrom, frame-rods secured to saidshank and center rod, and a side rod provided with a groove extending longitudinally thereof, a spring pivotally secured to said side rod at the upper end of the groove, and a securing-sleeve on the lower end of said rod, substantially as shown and described.

After vided with a slot to receive the spring, substantially as shown and described. 10

In testimony whereof I affiX my signature in presence of two Witnesses.
