-Means are provided for securing the sections l8 and 2| to the walls of the container. These may be an area of glue 23 on the inner surface of side and front walls positioned above the score line H. When the upper part of the container is hingedly raised, as hereinafter explained, the sections i9 and 2| will be integral with that part and extend down beyond the glued area and the score line H.

' In forming the device from the blank,.the front, back and side sections are folded together at any convenient time. rightan les to the back and the sections l9 and 2| at right angles to the cover section It. Seetions i9 and 2| thus form depending flanges from the cover section which lie inside the front and Sections 2|! may be turned under or over as folds or they may be removed. Sections I6 and the cover section 22 extending from the w front section It, may be folded'over section It.

To .open the device, the score line H is severed and the cover with its overlying layers l6 and 22 may be hingedly raised. Depending from layers J6 and 22 are the portions of the side and front walls originally above the score line and within these there are the sections l9 and 2| depending from the cover section It. The sections l9 and 2| depend farther than the others. When it is desired to reclose the device, the sections l9 and 2| lie across the severed score line and form an apron partially to seal oil the contents of the deilar to that shown in Figs. 5 and 6 except that the glue area 28" on the surface of the side and front walls is positioned below the score line H. A very heavy score line 24 separates the sections ll, 20 and 2| from the section I4. when the upper part of the container is hingedly raised, as

hereinafter explained,-the sections I9, 20 and 2| separate along the score line 24 from section It and remainv attached to the front andside sections and-i 2 and extend above them.

It is understood that the invention described and claimed herein is not to be limited'by'the particular terminology employed or by the relative dimensions of the portions shown in the drawings. For example, those parts referred to as covers maybe sides, ends or bottoms and vice -verse. and the box or carton may be broader than it is tall.

Since certain changes may be. made in the above article and diflerent embodiments of the invention could be made without departing from the scope thereof, it is intended that all matter contained in theabove description or shown-in the accompanyingdrawingsshall be interpreted as illustrative and not-in a limiting sense.

It is also to be understood that the following andmeans attached to at least one of said extenclaims are intended to cover all of the generic and specific features of the invention herein described, and all statemdntsokthesoope-of the invention which, as a' matter of language, might be said to fall therebetween.
