The ring D is preferably made of a piee of strong' wire, bent to form a ring', and a downwardly-extending twisted shank D. which extends between the inner member B ot the fold B and the outside of the bag body A, the shank D terminating at its lower end in a hook D2. extending upwardly outside of the fold B, to permit ot' conveniently engaging the hook D2 with a socket, nail or other Suitable support.
Located a distance above the Hoor, so as to properly support the ring- D and the bag;V
A atthe same time, the ring holds the mouth of the bag! body open, to permit of conveniently plaeing the refuee into the bag body. iVhen the bag body A has been filled with the, refuse. the, vtold B is drawn upward by the operator into extended position, S0 as to permit ot eonvei'iiently disen,efingfinggi the bag; from theriir;T D and allowing closing ot the mouth otl the bag by gathering' the extended fold membersI B', is, as plainly indieated in Fig'. 4. after which the gathered members are drawn together and tied with the Astring (`-.Y to securely close the bag. to prevent `spilling` otf the contents.

By the arrangement. described. a supporting' frame isprovided which eau be readily set'y up on a floor. to hold the bag body A suspended therein. with the bottom of the lbag' either resting' on the tioor or in a pan F, into whieh the lower end ot' the supporting l'rame may be set. the said pan having retaining means lf. preferably in the form ot' springvtongnes or the like, for eonnectiner the pan F with the lower end of the frame. It is understood that; in this case the sanitary refuse bag and the holder for the same are more particularly designed for vholding heavier refuse, so that the bottom preferably made of waterproof paper or a like material.
The particular arrangement of the folds at the top of the bag, that is, with the upper edge of the outer fold member unconnected to the inner fold member, for-insa finger pocket, by means of which the outer fold may be grasped for the convenient drawing of the folded members upward without conaet of the lingers with the inside of the Having thus described our invention, we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent: I A sanitary refuse bag, comprising a bag having an annular fold at, its mouth, the fold being formed of an inner and outer member, of which the inner member forms an integral continuation of the bag body and is folded outwardly and downwardly to extend on the outside of the bag body, and the outer member 0f the fold forms an integral continuation of the lower end-of the inner fold member and extends upwardly on the outside of the inner member and with the upper edge of the said outer member unconnected to the inner fold mem ber to form a finger pocket by means of which the outer fold may be grasped for the convenient drawing of the folded membersupward without contact of the fingers with the inside of the bag.
