'Rural-Free-Delivery Cabinet, of which the following is aspecification. 1

This inventlon'has relation to cabinets adapted to be used by carriers in the ruralfree-delivery service; and it consists in the novel construction and the relation of its parts, as hereinafter shown and described.

The object of the invention is to provide a cabinet and stand for the same, the stand being so constructed as to be easily and readily attached to the front part of body of the vehicle from which the carrier is delivering his mail. The cabinet is adapted to be located in said stand and may be easily and readily removed from the same.

The cabinet is provided with a pivoted cover and a number of compartments, each compartment being provided with a sprin which is adapted to bear down upon the mai and retain the same in the pro er place within its respective compartment. he cover is adapted to close all the compartments, and when the cabinet isthus closed it may be re moved and carried into the post-ofiice for refilling or emptying, as the case may be.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the stand showingthe occasion or fancy require.

cabinet open. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the stand with the cabinet removed. Fig. 3 is a perspective view of the closed cabinet. Fig. 4 is a transverse sectional view of the cabinet, and .Fig. 5 is a perspective view of the compartment-spring.

The stand consists of a base-board 1, which is adapted to be secured to the bottom of the vehicle by means of a bolt and thumb nut 2. The stand is preferably located in front of the driver and just behind the dashboard of the vehicle. The metallic uprights 3 3 are located at the ends of the base-board 1. Said uprights are preferably inverted-U shaped; but they may be of any other design should Thefront and rear sides of each upright 3 are provided with a series of perforations 4 4 and through the said perforations the horizontal rods 5 5 pass, the said rods connecting the two said uprights together. The said rods at their ends are provided with the thumb-nuts 6 ,6. It will be seen that by providing the perforations 4 4 in series the said rods 5 5 may be located at different horizontal levels and that one rod may be at one level while the other rod is at a diflerent level, as indicated in Flg. 1. The object of this would be to give the cabinet 7, which rests upon the said rods, the proper tilt or slant to retain the mail in position to the best advantage. ii

Cabinet 7 is preferably made of galvanized iron, although other suitable material may be used in its construction. The len th of the cabinet is such as to fit snugly within the upper ends of the uprights 3 3. The cabinet is provided with the side piece 8, which extends throughout thelength and breadth of the cabinet, the edge iece 9, with dimensions equal to the lengt and breadth of the cabinet, a side piece 10, with dimensions equal to the length of the cabinet and the,

breadth of the cabinet with the exception of a few inches, and end pieces 11, with dimen'sions equal to the breadth and depthof the cabinet with the exception that their corners are chamfered off, as at 12. The partitions 13 are located within the cabinet, and they are of substantially the samedimensions as the end pieces 1 1 11. Said artitions divide the space between the wa ls of the cabinet into compartments, and within each compartment is located a spring 14, the upper portion of which is fixed at or near the top of the compartment and the lower portion of which is adapted to bearupon the bottom of its'respective compartment or the mailmatter located thereon. The cover 15 is angular in cross-section and is pivoted at its ends at points 16 to the cabinet 7. The top piece 17 of the cover is of substantially the same dimensions as the piece 9 of the cabinet. The side piece 18 of the cover is substantially of the same len th as the length of the cabinet, but overlaps a ew inchesupon the piece 10 of the cabinet. The ends of the cove are provided with the piece 19 19. r

When the cabinet 9 is placed upon the rods 5 5, between the uprights 3 3, the thumbnuts 6 6 may be screwed upon the rods 5 5, so as to cause the upper ends of the uprights 3 3 to pinch or clamp the said cabinet. Thus it is retained in position against shock, and unnecessary rattling is avoided. To remove the cabinet the thumb-nuts 6 6 are unscrewed, the cover 15 is shut down over the ends of the partitions 13, and the driver may remove the cabinet from the stand. The

strap-handles 20 20 are attached to the cabinet' for convenience in carrying the same from the vehicle to the post-ofiice.

The advantage of thls device to rural-mail carriers is that the carrier when starting out -ments and saves the carrier much time and annoyance.

Havmg descrlbed my lnventlon as new,

what I desire to secure by Letters Patent is upon said rods and a means for drawing the 1. A device of the character described consisting of a stand having a base, u rights erected from said base, horizontal ro s connecting said uprights together, a cabinet adapted to fit between said uprights and rest ends of said u rights together whereby the cabinet'is hel in position.

2. A device of the character described consisting of a stand having a base, uprights erected from said base, horizontal bars connecting the upper ends of said uprights togather, thumb-screws threaded upon said ars, a cabinet adapted to rest upon said bars and between said uprights, said thumbscrews adapted to be operated so as to clamp the cabinet between then rights.

3. A device of, the c aracter described {consisting of a stand having a base, uprights erected upon said base, bars connecting said uprights together and adapted to be adjusted in horizontal positions,- and a means for clamping the cabinet between said uprights.

In testimony that I claim the foregoing as my own I have hereto afiixed my signature in the presenceof two witnesses.
