v longitudinal section through I the container with a portion of the protective covering tube broken away to show the arrangement of the compacts and witha portion of the contents removed and the interior of the structure-shown inside elevation to indicate the disposition of the cord '6;

Fig. 3 is a transverse section through the container on line 3-3 of Fig. 2;-

* Fig. i is a transverse section of the container in open position ready to receive the compacts; and

Fig. 5 is a perspective View of the compacts and associated packing discs in spaced relation. r 7

Like numerals designate like parts in each of the several views. 7

Referring to the accompanying drawings, I provide a tubular cardboardor similar casing 1 consisting of two semibylindrical sections 2 which are hingedly connected by suitable flexible hinge strips 4, preferably of paper as shown in Figs. 3 andt. Positioned within the container is a suitable sheet of protective soft packing such as paperpulp or cotton wadding of sufficient size to just encircle the compacts when the container is closed. The container is sealed by means of a longitudinal cord binding strip 8 of stout paper disposed as shown in Figs; 1 and 2 and concealing all but the end of a cord 6. Cord 6 is fastened near one end of the container from a point 5 within the container, passing through an opening and thence across the endof the are paper tane strips v element *9' is then wrapped around; 'asiindicontainer and along the. channel left .between the longitudinal freeedgesfof the sen11'cy l1ndr1cal sections "of the container as shown in Fig. 8 and "thence over the other end of the container and partway'ifiti back so that a portion of its endprojects beyond the paper binding strip 8 (to be readily grasped for opening the container. I provlde transverse strips 3 which are 1 pasted over the two sections of the-container F across the channel between their freeee es to holdthem securely in place. F-then affix the strip 8. These; strips preferably provided with. glue or .gumonfone of their "surfaces.

I 'provi lo a novel arrangement and means for safely housing the compacts consisting in arranging the compacts in pairs with the face powder on the compacts arranged to (face eaclrothe r and with a thin ax paper '17 0 disc 11 placed adjacent the faeepowder'side of each of the com-pacts and with either-1a corrugated pasteboard or similar spacing ring {12 or a disc of'paper pulp or cotton 'wadding material interposed in pl'ace of" TlIIg 12"as' a spacing or shock-absorbing element. r

i ,In-paeking the container the semi-cylindrical sections 2 are spread in openposition,

"as shown in"Fi', a ndthe' series of cola-' pacts l0,'protective waxpaper. discs ligand.

. ifesilient paper or other rings or {discs 12 are positioned successively andin e 'ar-j ran'gementi shown in Figs. 2 was and-the cated in -"dotted lines in 4 and the semi cylindrical" sections closed to formjthe cyl- 'inder. ".The transverse .s'tripsfil' are then, JafiiXedand the longitudinal binding Si'slfastenedin place over the cord awaits has been brought along the channeljtdform the free edges-of theisection's as shown in Fig. 3, one end of the cord protruding to permitiofIits being'readily grasped. T

. To open-the package the purchaser {merely grasps the :free :end, of, ;the cord, as shown r in Fig. 2 and pulls it, thus tearing its Way through the paper bin'dingstrip 8w sand allowingthe package. to open gout-in the too p s a paper strip extending arouncl"the conmanner shown in Fig. 4 when the compacts may be readily taken out.

This special package provides a safe, convenient and inexpensive container for shipping these face powder compacts, which are somewhat fragile] In the past these compacts have generally been shipped in pairs in paper glassine envelopes or in egg crates which is a very expensive and inconvenient method of handling.

This new special package has proven very effective for the shipping of rouge and 'compactsiin bulk as it holds a great quan- 'tity, eliminates breakage and is easy to store." When I ship plain rouge or com pacts (unimbossed) I just havewax paper or cottonseparators in place of the rings I l2but when I ship rouge or compacts with a trade or other name embossed on the face powder I provide cardboard packing'rings 12 which function to space the compacts and to protect the embossing on the powder cakes I I What I claim is:

1; special packagefor rouge and face powder compacts, comprising tubular cardboard or similar cas1ng"elernents open-at the end andiof appropriate size to provide a narrow channel between the longitudinal free edges of same, a flexible-hinge element hingedlyconnecting the aforesaidicasing elements along adjacent. longitudinal edges,. a cord secured to one of thecaslng elements near one end thereof and extending around the end of the container and longitudinally in the channel above described and around the other end ofthecontainer, and a cord binding strip of paper affixed to the package I and extending around bothfen'ds of the container and along one side thereof and-concealing all but the .endsof the "cordysaid paper strip permitting of the package being opened by merely pulling the cord sufiiclent-v ly to tear the paper stri 2. A container for rouge and face j'powvcardboard casings, a flexible hingeunember connecting said casings alongi one of the longitudinal edges of each ofthe casings,

the'casingsfbeing of suitable size to leave a I narrow long tudlnal' channel, between them free; edges when closed, afcord anchored v1n 4. In combination with the apparatus described in claiml, a plurality of paper strips pasted transversely of the container to hold the sectionsthereof in closed relation over the compacts, and a paper binding strip extending over both ends of the container and over the longitudinal channel formed betweenthe free edges of the semi-cylindrical;

added compacts, a

cord anchored in the a oresaid casing near one end thereof andapproximately opposite to the aforesaid longitudinal channel, said cord being extended around the end of the container and along the longitudinal channel between thevfree edges of the semi-cylim V drical casings, thence around the otherrend V V of the container and in a' reverse direction for a short distance, a paper binding'strip pasted over the container and positioned to conceal the cord except at its extreme free end, and conceal the edges of the container in their nearly, closed-relation, the end of 5 the cord being free to be grasped and pulledand tear the binding strip and open the con; tainer, and transverse paper strips, pasted across the respective casing sections to more securely seal the. package while permitting of its being openedbypulling the cord.v


der compacts, comprising semi-cylindrical 1 ;one of the casings and adapted to be 5 threaded around the container and-following the path of the longitudinal channeh'an'd 'tainer and securing the :cord while at the V Q same time concealing the container.

" 3'. In combination with the-apparatus de-V scribed in claim 2, a'rectangular strip of cotfton' wadding of'suitable size to' have its lon- 1 gitudinal free edges meet when wrapped around I the 'compactsjwithjthe wadding in the caslng, and paper pro ect1ng rings interposed between successive compacts,
