The "invention, furthermore, consists in certain minor-formations or gonstructions of parts and the combination onarrangement. of the patrs all substantially as hereinafter described in conjunction with theaccompanying drawings, and setv forth in the claims.

' In the drawingsk-Figure '1 is a perspective view showing the boxwith its cover swung open and the cap or closure for the flange margined aperture at the top of the package removed from'its closing position. Fig. 2 is a vertical sectional View through the package represented as in 'its closed and wrappedcondition; Fig; 3 is a perspective view of the shallow tray and its-eq'ui ments which are comprised in the improve weep-- tacle: Fig. 4 is a vertical sectional view of the a erture margining sleeve-like art and of .t e cup-shaped "cap which isua apted fora closing engagement therewith.

is hingedlvconnected at the upper edge of I one side wall thereof.- The box is filled with its powder like contentsnotquite up to the top as shown in 2, Then ashal ow tray (.1, which may be made of paper or card'" board is set within the mouth of the'box .prop t-r,-th is tray comprising a bottom 10 I and sides l2, the sldos bcingperinanently' stuck by paste or'glue to the wal s of the box;

The tray has a central aperture. 15 down through which sits the neck or lower end portion .6 of a sleeve-like part I) and which 3 constitutes an annular llange-margining'for the :uicrturc. This sleeve-like pa'r't'has a't' a short distance above its lower end an. out

wardly extending flange l7 which'r'e'sts on the top of the tray bascwhile itsu standing portion 18 receives, with'an inc os ng; en-

gagement thereabout, the cup-shaped cap or cover E. The part'l) is secured in its rela, tion to the base of the tray, as a bushing therefonand to constitute'relatively thereto an u )standing annular flange; and' it is provide with a transversely extending encircling flan e 1.7 above its, bottom which, by a layer of g no; as indicated at 20, Fig. 4, ap-

plied on the underside-surface ofth'e .flange .andexteriorly of the portion 16 of the part D below the'fiange, is stuck to the circular edge-ofthe aperture and marginally'outsidc thereof. The hieight of the part I) with the c ip thereonv is about such that it will be at a plane coincident'with the u. per edges of the ox proper, and so that w en the cover of the box is brought to its horizontal closing position it will extend across and engage tho cap and prevent it from displacement from' its closing engagement about the annulan part D. The part D and its cup shaped cap E may advantageously and cheaply be In Fig. 2, die which entirely inc oses the package and conoutlet aperture; but, of course, so soon as the wrapping'is. removed and the cover'jopened, the cap E may befremoved' and more or'less of the contents of the box poured therefrom;
