With the foregoing and other objectslin view, as will hereinafter become apparent, this invention comprises the constructions, combination and arrangements of parts, hereinafter set forth, disclosed and shown on the accompanying drawing. In this drawing,

Figure 1 is a view of a wash room having the cabinet comprising this invention in position therein, l

Figure 2 is a front elevational view. of the dispensing cabinet and old razor blade receptacle constituting this invention,

Figure 3 is a side plan viewof Figure 2,

Figure 4 is a perspective view of the lower end of the cabinet with the old razor blade receptacle in partly removed position,

' Figure 5 is a plan view of the back of the cabinet, 1

Figure 6 is a perspective view from the back of the old razor blade receptacle, and

Figure '7 is a View on line 7--7 of Figure 1.

There is shown at 10 the combination razor blade towel dispensing cabinet, and old razor blade receptacle comprising this invention which, as shown in Figure 1, in operative position will preferably be mounted on the wall of a washroom above the washstand 11 and below the shaving mirror 12 or in other similar convenient positions. This cabinet comprises a dispensing cabinet 13 for razor blade towels or wipers and an old razor blade holder or receptacle 14 mountinvention is to pro vide a combination receptacle which vmay' bej easily attached between the washstandand the shaving mirror in the wash iproom makingthe same convenient for dispensing razor blade wip-fl ers or towels and' for disposing of old razor" ed'b'elowthe toweldispenser 13, both being se curedfori a'frame or inount'lS i a "Each o these threeelementsfthedispensing; cabinet ;l3;'the receptacle or holder .14; and the frame; 15 will preferably be made from pressed metal although any other suitable material mayj b'eused.'- The dispensing cabinet-13'isj'secured tothe'frame or mount 15 by a plurality of prongs 16 integral with and projecting from the side" and bottom walls of the receptacle 14,'the-'prongs= 16 being passed through V appropriately 1 placed apertursinthe frame or'mount 15 and bent over as shown'in Figures5'and 7.

This dispensing cabinet 13,, especially. intended for ;holding and dispensing the razor blade'wipers or'towels, the" razor bladefwipersfl orfltoWelsjbeirig formed fof specially prepared; softand abs orbent paper :fo'lded into bookle't rm th which the: r z r i insert d ed"through for wiping and cleansing, j, w example of oneform of suchwiper or towel disclosed and claimed in Patent No. 1,967,937. As will be observed, the prongs 16 on the opposite side walls are bent in opposite directions while the prongs 16 on the lower wall 17 are bent upwardly, thus holding the receptacle 13 per manently in position on the frame or mount 15. Old razor bladeholder 14 consists of a closed receptacle having a receptacle slot 20 formed razor blades to be dropped into the receptacle therethrough. A back wall 22 is secured to the receptacle front 21 by a plurality of prongs 23 passing therethrough and bent over in opposite directions.

This back wall 22 has a large slot 24 therein so that the old razor blades may be removed therefrom for permanent disposition, as by the attendant or Pullman porter when in use in a public wash room, who will do so periodically. The back 22 of the receptacle '14 has a pair of upwardly projecting tabs 25, these tabs 25 being passed through appropriately placed apertures 26 in the mount or frame 15. At the bottom or the mount or frame 15 a spring tab 2'7 is riveted thereto as at 28, the spring tab 27 having a bent lip 29 projecting through an appropriate aperture in the frame or mount 15. When it is desired to remove the receptacle 14 in order to dispose of the old razor blades therein the receptacle bination this receptacle and dispensing cabinet- 10 is mounted on the wall of a Wash room at any suitable securing means Such as' a'riaiI or s'c'rew through the apertures 30 and 31 provided in' the I portion-of-the support having an area surroundframe or mount 15. The dispensing cabinet- 13 will be kept filled with suitable razor blade wipers or towels allowing the usehto'help' himself w s suitable towel through the open top and openings 19 in the front 18 of the cabinet.

hrou h h aperfiure 0. lb the r p ac e" 2 The Pullman porter or attendant willperiodically; remove receptacle 14 and empty-it through therear slot 24- and at the same time refill "the dispensing i cabinet )13, thus keeping {this -device in condition 'for continuous use. I This invention, 3 while useful in the hoine, is especially-- useful in public, places such as hotel rooms, or Pullman car washrooms, for by providing razor blade wipers or; towels in: the dispensing cabinet 13, the

hotel or Pullman car prevents the probability of therazor blade being wiped on towelstherebyruiningfithe towels, and further prevents-the. liability of oldrazor blades being mixed with dirty towels tothe probable serious injury 'of the laundry attendant.- While it istrue thatP'ullmancarsdoprovide slots in the car walls to receive old razor'blades' these slots 'are g'e'nerally "so inconspicuous "that they are often not used, but.

withfthis invention the receptacle is; 'placedih such a positionEfthat-it'is 'forcibly'b'ro'ught to 'the' attention of. the"'user, being "in' f ont of'him throughout, the shaving pr cess so'that 'he 'will naturally and obviously dispose of his old blade in the receptacle when he has an old blade to dis pose of. I

The novel features and the operation cf this.

device will be apparent from the foregoing descriptionr While the device has been shown andv the structure described in detail, it is obvious that 'this is not to be considered'limited to'the exact fo-rm disclosed, and that changes may be made thereinwithin the scope of .what is claimed without departing' from the s'piritof the invention.

Having thus set 'forth and disclosed the na-- ture of this invention, what is claimed is:

"1.A holder for paper wipers and used blades charaicterized' .by a s'upport and a compartment for s'aidblades secured to the support, the lower ed by an annular member raised above the plane 6: the support:-and constituting a frame for said area, cooperative securing means on said com- "partment'and said frame, said securing means When the-userwishes tofiispose of" the razor I blades, he merely drops his old saftymazor blade comprisinga pair of spacedupwardly projacting prongs-on ,the rear ofithefcompartment, a pair of similarly spacedprongreceivihg;slots in=saldz- 7 frame, a forwardly projecting ."spring;, lip Hat 1 operatingsecond lip secured-to-therear'of-the compartment, said lips arranged tofcooperate forlocking the compartment tofthe; support over, Y
