When the holder 19 is in operative position within thebox, it will be seen that the same is positioned directly over the inwardly projecting portions 1B connected with the side walls of the box, said holder thus serving as a means of loc-king said portions 13 in this position and hence of securely holding the box in distendcd or operative condition. lVhile 1 have illustrated and described the preferred form of construction for carrying my invention into effect, this is capable of variation and modification without departing from the spirit ot the invention. l, therefore, do not wish to be liml ited to the precise details o't` construction set forth, but desire to avail myself ot such variations and modifications as come within the scope of the appended claims.
