2 Claims. (Cl. 206-632)
This invention relates. generally to containers 2
or receptacles, and it is an object thereof to pro
vide a container especially constructed for use in
receiving, in a compact and orderly manner, vari
ous accessories and compounds used in adminis
tering ?rst aid to injured persons.
It is another object of the invention to provide
a container embodying-e; casing having an ‘outer
wall structure formed to provide pockets for the
reception of antiseptic applicators.

Another object is to provide a container for the
purpose set forth‘having an internally and axially
disposed tubular member formed with a well for
the reception of a ?uidic antiseptic compound, the
2
board united by .a corrugatedseparator, whereby
to produce in the walls of the body member a
multiplicity of vertically extending pockets which,
in this instance, are adapted to receive applicator
sticks 6, the latter being of the type having at
one end a body of soft cotton or the like, adapted
to be immersed in a liquid antiseptic‘ for the pur
pose of applying such an antiseptic to injuries
or
wounds.

The lower or base end of the body member'5
carries a permanent or stationary closure 1 which,
in one form of the‘ invention, is formed from a
molded plastic. The closure embodies a base wall
