It is important to note that the bottom 19 of the pocket 18 is formed of a fabric which differs from f the sideA panels thereof in-that it is pervious tothe free pasi gases given olf by the material llncontained within the pocket.

The invention, as will be readily understood, is susceptible of various changes and modifications without involving a departure thereof and it `is accordingly intended to claim the same broadly as well as specifically as indicated by the appended claims.
IVhat is claimed as new, and useful is -1. An article of the class described comprising a bag the top of which is sealed and the sides 'of which are formed of a material impervious to the freevpas'sage therethrough of a moth or other insect repelling vapor or gas, thebottom of said bag being formed of a material pervious to said gas or vapor,the area of said pervious material being relativelysmall as compared to the'Z total area of;saidimperviousmaterial. c I v i 2.,An article of the class described comprising a bag-like container for a moth or other insect repelling material capable of' sagetherethrough` of said gas or vapor, and
a bottom for said bag extending .between the bottom edges of saidpanels, saidA bottom being pervious to said gas or vapor.-
,3. An article of the class described prising a bag-like container for a material capable of evaporating to produce a gas or vapor, saidcontainer including a pair of panels the perimetral edges of-which are secured together throughout all but a limited extent thereof, said panels being formed of a vmaterial practically impervious to the passage therethrough of saidgas or vapor, and means for closing the opening provided between the unsecured portions of said panels, v'said meansy being 'formed'of' a 'material perwhich the botc l u. generated within said container. The upper edgeof the-panel 13 is also pro-J initting the gradual escape of the gas or vapor vapor, said; container including. a pair ofA panels the perimetral edges ofrwhi'chare secured together throughout all but a limited extent thereof,saidpanels being formed of a material practically impervious vto the pas-k sage therethrough of said gas or vapor, and means vfor closing the opening provided between the unsecured portions of said panels, said means being formed'of a material permitting'the gradual escape of the gas or vapor generated within said container, the material of which'said panels are formed beingy transparent to a greater or less-degreeif# V5.YA An article of the class describedcomprising a bag-like V'container forl armoth or other -insect repelling material capable of evaporating to produce a gas or vapor, said container including a pair of panels the side and top edges of which are secured together, said panels being impervi'ousto the free'pas-A sage therethrough of said gas or vapor, and a bottom forV said bag extending betweenthe bottom edges of said panels,'said bottom being pervious to said gas or vapor, one of said panelsbeing of greater length than'the other and having means therein for suspending the container upon a hook or the like. l 6. An article lof the class described comprising a bag-like container for a mother other insectAVA repelling material capable of evaporating to produce a gasor vapor, said container including a pair of panels the side and top edges of which are secured together, u.
