The slot-in which the edge of the filiing opening of the ciru1n is heici is irreguiariy formed to present corrugated contacting surfaces to the end that When the body portion of the drum and sput arefforceci together, or the sput is ciamped in position the irreguiar surfaces or corruga 'ons wili act to firmiy drum tor container may be slot for the reception of the secure the sput against rotary movement, shouid it be necessary to direct excessive strain on the piug of the sput to release it.

Eniargements 8 form a part of the sput ami extend into the drum, the spaces between adjacent eniargements defining passageways 9 that are flush with the inner surface of the drum or container, to ermit the entire contents of the drum to e poured therefrom. Internal threads 10 are formei in the'sput and are designed to cooperate with threads formed exterioriy of the piug 11, the ping being provided with a square opening to recei've a square wrench empioyed for rotating the piugto position or remove it.

A flange 12 extends lateraiiy from the ping and provides a shouid'er to engage the gasket 13 that is positioned on the upper-surface of the sput so that a fluid tight connection be tyveen the piug and sput Wiii be insured at ali t1mes.

As ciearly shown by Figure 2 of the drztwing, the container is buiged adjacent to the sput opening so that when'the sput is secred in position the bottom of the sput Wiii iie flush With the inner surface of the container.
