Now, if it is desired to utilize the mirror 25,
the slide pull 2| will be grasped in the fingers
and pulled outwardly and the guiding shoes I8’
operating in the slot 1 permits the slide to be
pulled outwardly with a free and easy motion.
The slide will be pulled outwardly to its fullest
extent to thus permit the shorter mirror frame
23 to be free of the top casing as shown in Fig. 2.
The mirror frame 23 will then be raised by the
hand and the slide I4 again pushed inwardly
that this shoe contacts on the inner and outer
surfaces of the bottom 2 of the casing, as illus
trated in Fig. 3. Thus, when these lug portions

slots 1 of the casing, the slide can be moved into
and out of the casing but cannot be removed

then be pushed still slightly inwardly and out

out, it has carried the drawer 21 with it and if
it is desired to remove something from the drawer,
the Ydrawer 21' may then be pulled outwardly on
its slide I4 as previously mentioned.
To again close the vanity, the slide I4 is pulled
out toV its fullest extent, the mirror frame 23

Also, may be seen the small ears 22 near the l
`forward end of the track which prevent the small
drawer from tilting downwardly when the drawer
is at the outer end of the slide.
