2 2,028,650 therefore, is confined to a purely rectangular vantages, the form hereinbefore descri ing movementl of the secondary advertising carrier I I. merely a preferred embodiment thereo It will be noted that a connection between the various parts of this advertising carrier by means of adhesive, clips or the like may be entirely dispensed with, and that subsequent to placing the parts in folded condition, they will be readily held in this condition. Owing to the resiliency of the material of which the advertising carrier is made, the panels I2, I3 will return Ato their original collapsed condition, as shown in Fig. 3, when after the exertion of a pull on the lower edge of the advertising panel II the latter is pushed home again into the pocket createdby the front panel I, the rear panel Il! and the lateral flap 3.

It will also be noted that the advertising material on the display side of the front panel may be as desired and that upon the secondary carrier II being pulled out of the pocket additional advertising material is displayed thereon.

In the embodiment of the invention illustrated on the drawing, the advertising portion I is provided with out out areas, indicated by reference characters Ilv and I8, and it will be obvious that a part of the front face of the secondary display panel I I will be visible from the front through the out out portions of the front panel. During the rectilinear movement of the secondary panel II relatively to the front portion I, other diiierentially indicated display paris I9, 20 of this secondary carrier may be displayed through these cut out portions. his rectilinear movement of the secondary display carrier I I may, for instance, represent the iiow of a liquid from a discharge spout, or it may simulate the alterations in the indicator column of a thermometer, or similar instrument.

These references to the flow of a liquid or change of thermometer position, however, are made by way of illustration only, and it will be apparent that the structure will lend itself to numerous purposes in which it is desired to produce a novel and striking effect through the movement of a display carrier, normally not visible, relatively to the visible portion of another display carrier.

It will also be seen that the entire device when completely folded, occupies a very small compact space and that it can, on this account, readily be mailed or distributed in the form of hand bills or the like.

It will also be understood, that owing to the absence of additional operations, as pasting, clipping or the like, the cutting of the entire folder, including the production of the cut out portions, may be carried out in a single operation, while the printing and folding may be done in a single operation also, so that the entire advertising carrier in its completed form may be produced very economically.

It is thought that the invention and many of its attendant advantages will be understood from the foregoing description, and it will be apparent that various changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of the parts without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention or sacrificing all of its material ad- I claim:
