CHARLES H. TRUAX, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

BOX.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Application filed May 28,1894.

To allwhom it may concern:

Be' it known that I, CHARLES 'H. TRUAX, a citizen of the United States, residing at Ohicago, in the, county of Cook and State of Illi nois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Boxes, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to that class of boxes in which there is an outer casing open at both ends and a drawer sliding therein; and my invention consists in the construction of the parts, as fully set forth hereinafter, so as to maintain the relation of the drawer and the casing to prevent the drawer from being drawn out to too great an extent and avoid the loss of contents, all as fully set forth hereinafter, and as illustrated in the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved box, the drawer drawn out. Fig. 2 is' alongitudinal section. Fig. 3 is a transverse section enlarged. Figwtis aside view of the casing, and Fig.5is aside view of the drawer detached. Fig. 6 is a perspective view illustrating the outer case, showing an arrangement of projections or lips for preventing the movement of the drawer from one end and limiting its movement at theother; and Fig. 7 is a perspective view of the draweradapted to said case.

The outer casing A of the box is of any suitable size and proportion. As shown, it is oblong and open at both ends, and is preterably of metal. UsuallyI have employed aluminium on account of its lightness and nonoxidizing quality.

The drawer B is constructed as usual, open at the top. with the sides, ends, and bottom closed, and fits the case A so as to slide in and out of the same.

In using boxes of this character for putting up medicines it has been found that a great loss and inconvenience results from the fact that when the box is open, unless itshould be held in an exactly level position, the mediclues in the form of tabletsor other p.-t;.'ti

pens to be inverted at the time that it is opened the discharge and loss are very great, while frequentlyin opening the box by pushmg the drawer in at one end the drawer recent No. 542,903, dated Jul 16, 1895.

Serial No. 512.714. on model.)

found that the most practical way of securing it is to form a lo g groovea: by indenting one side of the drawer, then inserting the drawer into the case, and then indenting the corresponding side of the case to form an 1nwardly-proj'ecting' knob or pin 6, which en ters the groove 00 and permits the drawer-b0 be pushed out at one end to a sufficient extent to get access to the contents, and at the same time prevent it from being pushed out at the opposite end'or from being unduly. drawn out at any time.

As thus constructed,the box can be opened only from one end, and the drawer car: only be thrown out a sufficient extent to permit proper access to it; but in order to protect the drawer from the contents and to prevent the discharge of the contents in case the drawer should be thrust out when it is in an inverted position,l combine with the drawer an interior lining in the shape of a thin paper box 0, having'the top cut away at the edges to leave a flap f of the full width of the box at one end and which will close down upon the contents when the drawer is shoved in the case A, but which can be lifted when the drawer is drawn out, and which will prevent the ready spilling out of the contents if the drawer should be thrust out even in an inverted position, or when the entire box is held vertically. The flap f also afiords a ready means for applying a label of any suitable character, which is covered and protected as soon as the drawer is thrust into the case. The lining C also serves to protect the material of the drawer, whether of metal, paper, or otherwise, from the action of the contents and preserve the latter in a better condition.

While I have referred to the pin a as being upon the casing A and the recess a: as being in the side of the drawer, it will be evident that the pin may be upon the drawer and the recess in the side of the casing, and also that the recess may consist of an oblong slot instead of a depression.

In Figs. 6 and 7 is illustrated another conis thrown to such an extent as to cause the struction whereby my improvement maybe carried out, and in this construction the outer case as made is provided with projections which, when turned in, form lips s at one end, which prevent the drawer from being drawn out at that end, while at the opposite end of the case the projection e is in the form of a lip, which may be bent inward to enter a slot :13 in the side of the drawer, Fig. 7; or instead of a slot there may be a long indentation formed in the side, as before described.

Without limiting myself to the precise construction and arrangement of parts shown, I claim as my invention- 1 Abox consisting of a casing open at both ends and having an indentation at one side, combinedwith a'vdrawer having .rgroove in thei'sideoppositdto and receiving the indentation, the said drawer being cut away to form a flap, substantially as described.

2. A box consisting, of a casing A open at 20 both ends, a drawer sliding therein, and corresponding indentations and projections permitting the drawer to be partially drawn out atone end only and limiting the movement thereof, substantially as described.

3. The combination in a box, of a casing open at both ends, a box sliding therein, a projection upon the casing or the box and a corresponding longitudinal groove or recess in the opposite side of the box or cas1ng,substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

CHARLES H. TRUAX.
