sPEoIrIoATIoiv forming part ofLetters Patent No. 702,107, datedaune 10, 1902.

Application filed July 6,1900. Serial-No. 22,681. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that LEUGEN O. LooM1s,a citizen of the United States, residing at'Omaha,in the county of Douglas and State of Nebraska,

have invented certain 'newand useful I'm provements in Holders for Theater or Transportation Tickets; and Ido declare'jthe following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as willenable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to holders for theater and transportation tickets; and ithas for its object the provision of a simple and comparatively inexpensive ticket-holder combined with a diagram of the seats of the theater, a program of the entertainment, and advertisements, or to combine with said ticket-holder a time-table of a public carrier or a map and information concerning the route of the public carrier; and it consists in certain novel features hereinafter described and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, Figure 1 is a diagrammatic View of the blank from which the holder is formed. Fig. 2 is a similar view of the opposite side of the blank, showing the flap folded to form the pocket. Fig. 3 is a side elevation showing theholder completed;

and Figs. at and 5 are sectional views taken on the lines 00 0c and y 'y of Fig. 2, respectively.

Referring more particularlyto the drawings by letter, A designates a blank of stiff paper or other light tough material. blank is formed with the main rectangular portion B and an extension, flap,-or tongue 0, adapted to be folded over onto the main portion along the line a a, so as to fornfwith the main portion a'pocket D, adapted to receive and holda ticket. Two edges of the flap or tongue are coated with an adhesive substance, as indicated at E, so that when the flap is folded over'onto the main portion it will adhere thereto and form an open-ended pocket. As theater tickets are narrower and smaller-than transportation-tickets and it is essential that the door-keeper may handle them rapidly, I provide a slot F in the main portion of the blank just above the tongue or flap, which is slightly longer than the width of the tickets. When the pocket has been formed, this slot will constitute an opening This in the sideof the same, through which the tickets may be inserted, and as the space be. tween the slot and the closed end of the pocket will be less than the length of the ticket the end of theticket will project through the slot and may consequently be instantly grasped and withdrawn, as will be readily understood by reference to Fig. 3. When transportationti'ekets are placed in the pocket, they are in- ;serted in the end thereof and their great length will cause them to project slightly beyond the pocket. 'The blank is folded successively onthelines b b and c 0, when it will assume the shape shown in Fig. 3 and will be blank maybe used to give the program of an entertainment, a time-table, or other information' particularly concerning the parties issuing the device, whilethe remainder will be devoted to advertisements.

It will be readily seen that I have provided a cheap and. simple ..ticket-holder;which will lforman eifective-advertising medium. By its use the theater patron is provided with a dia ram. 80 th thq ay d yv yt cation of his seat, while the traveler has a .map of his line oftravel before him at all times.

' Having thusdescribed my invention, what I claim, anddesire tosecure by Letters Patent, isg 1 A ticket-holder con'sisting of a blank havingaflap adaptedto'be folded over but once pocket at one corner thereof,.thes a id blank being providedwithaslot within the outlines of that portion to which the flap is secured and and seeuredto th ebla nk to form therewith a being further provided with spaces to contain 7 advertisementsand other printed matter.

In testimony whereof I have signed this specification in the presence of two witnesses.
