The object f the invention is to provide n eatamenial sack, which will possess the qualities of surely'and perfectly catching the catamenia, and without the possibiiity of any partthereof escaping. upon the limbs or clothes of the person, and whose provision fo'rthe insertion in and removal from of the substance used for absorbing the discharge isso ample that no trouble r'embarrassment will be given to the wearer; and this invention `consists in the formation-of a rubber or other-"suitable pouch, divided in to two or more compartments or pockets for the reception of the'spo'nge or other substance or material used as'the absorbent for-the mensti-unl discharge, each of which eompartmentsor pockets is made of a form somewhat resembling a canoe, with a long month on its top, entirely open, the sponge or other substancerin the twopockets or compartments of the pouch,l so absorbing the menstrual discharge as to prevent its contact with the limbs or clothes of the person. In the accompanying plate of drawings, myimprovedcatamenial sack is illustrated- Figure 1 being a sido view of the pouch or sack,"and I i Figure 2 a. transverse section of the same. I

Each pouch or bog is made of n similar form,and that somewhat resemblingar canoe, with a large mouth or opening, E, extendingA from end to end, and in each bag is to be pla-ced a sponge or other material, which is suitablefor use as a mea-ns of absorbing the menstrual discharge, the several bags Withftheir Sponges, as the sack is worn, securing a most perfect rtention of the catamenin, and preventing it from coming in contact with the limbs or clothes of' the person.
