1 Claim. (01. sac-15)
This invention relates to cartons of the nature
employed in holding commodities in attractive
conditions to be sold to the retail trade and the
primary object of the invention is the provision
5 of such a carton wherein is employed a number
of compartments each marked to represent the
days of the month and having associated therewith anriin the carton a header upon-which may
be printed or otherwise marked, the name of the
10 particular year, month and day.
Another important aim of the instant invention
is the provision of a novel and unique carton of
the aforementioned character which may assume
the nature of a box within which is packed such
15 widely sold articles as candy, nuts, fruits and the
like, and to ful?ll the concepts of the invention,
the said articles should be isolated in compart~
8 that will form the lower half of a telescoping
box 'of well known type. A header l0 formed of
material the same as that from which the tray-,
like receptacle is created occupies a small portion
of the receptacle and preferably extends across 5
one side thereof so as to present a panel l2 upon
the face of which may be imprinted the S'e?r as
at ‘ll, the month as at l6 and the days of the
week as at l8. This header I0 is U-shaped in
cross-section and the down-turned legs 20 ‘of 10
their lower edges resting upon bottom 6 and the
face of ‘panel l2 in a plane substantially the same '

reason for constructing header l0 as mentioned is
to permit the manufacturer to print a year’ssup- 15

the tray-like receptacles as the trade demands.
