` Each of the sections 11 and 12 is provided with a keeper recess 32, adaptedy to receive the end 30 of the latch 26 of the adjacent outwardly positioned sections, whereby the right on a Ysupport by releasing the latch 26y and pressingdownwardly upon the cover 17.

A suitable Acontainer is arranged, the capacity of which may be varied at will, the structure being lime and water proof, and the rcontents thereof always easily accessible by opening the lid 18, by contracting the By releasing tional engagement with the inner face of said top section, a bottom section telescoping within said intermediate section, and having a top bead frictionally engaging the inner face of said intermediate section, latches shiftably carried by said beads, the said upper beads provided withreceiving sockets for the said latches, arranged in operative alinement therewith.

2. A cement container comprising a plu rality of telescoping sections, a cover provided upon the largest end'section, a 'countersunk bottom provided for the smallest end section, a swinging bail carried by the said bottom, adapted for flatly engaging the same, spring pressed ylatches carried by the lower ends of the largest and intermediate sections, adapted for engagement with the upperfends of the intermediate and smallest sections, when the sections are projected, the

sections adjacent the lower ends being arrangedy with keeper recesses positioned in alinement therewith when the sections are contracted.

3. A receptacle comprising telescoping sections,bottom beads arranged upon the relatively outer sections, top beads arranged upon the relatively inner sections provided with receiving slots, spring pressed latches shiftably and rotatably carried by the said lower beads, reinforcing wires within the said beads having interrupted portions adj acent the said sockets 'and latches, the ,inwardly arranged sections having keeper recesses adapted for alinement with the said latches when the latter are partially rotated andthe sections are telescopingly retracted.
