Description: Patent for a new and improved standard for logging-cars. This design "consists of a pivoted standard connected by links to a lever a short distance from its pivot, so that when the lever is turned out of alignment with the links the standard will be firmly locked in position. . . . The object of [the] invention is to provide a standard for cars and wagons which can be readily turned down out of the way when loading, and which, when turned up into position, will be firmly and securely held" (lines 7-16).
