Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Jan. 14, 1913.

Application filed July 30, 1912. Serial No. 712,237.

by moisture while in-storage or transportation; and to provide a simple, efiicient and economical means for deleting the moisture from cartons or'other packing devices.

The drawing is a side view of a tubular packet or carton for holding tennis balls, the side of the top of the carton and cover therefor being partly cut away to show the interior construction of the same.

While cartons constructed and arran ed ,in accordance with the present inventlon may be employed for the storage or transportation of any suitable articles or material, such as cigars, candies and the like, I have shown the invention in its service as applied forthe stora e and transportation of tennis balls 5. T e tennis balls 5 are usually packed in holders 6, the holders bein formed to a diameter sufficient to receive the golf balls, which rest one upon the other in the manner shown. The holder 6 is usually constructed from pasteboard,-- leather, or light metal. It is provided with a top 7 from the center whereof is suspended a cartridge 8. The cartridge 8 is preferably constructed of a gauze cover formed of fabric sufliciently open to permit the air of the holder to come in contact with the contents thereof. Thegauze forms a pocket or packet, in which is preferably packed salammoniac. While I prefer the use of salammoniac, it will be understood that any suitable deliquescent material may be emayedis packed, a small metal cap 9 is secured upon the fabric, and the cartridge thus completed is fastened by means of small cords 10 or other suitable fastening devices to the top or cover 7. When provided with a carabsorbed by the'salammoniac or other filling of the cartridge. When the cartridge 8 is secured in the manner shown, upon the cover 7, it is removed with the cover 7, and does not obstruct the easy access to the holder 6 or prevent the rolling of any of the balls 5 therefrom.

While I have herein shown and described the hygroscopic material as held within a fabric forming the cartridge 8, it will be understood that the same may be employed in any convenient form, in which it may be attached to the cover 7 Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire-to secure by Letters Patent A carton comprising aremovable coyer; a cartridge charged with deliquescent sub stance, said cartridge having a perforated shell and a metal cap; and means for removably attaching said cap to said cover.

In testimony whereof I have signed m name to thisspecification in the presence 0 two subscribing witnesses.
