Application April 7, 1944, Serial No. 529,936
2 Claims.
The object of my invention is to provide a
cheap, readily assembled, merchantable package

without waste and in such form as to be readily
picked up by a tooth brush.
The ends of the trunnions I5 are so located
that, in use, the user may grasp the main body

a single sheet of material bent or moulded to the 25 will engage a side wall of the funnel I9 in the
illustrated shape and provided, adjacent its base,
with a discharge opening II. The opposite sides
of the U formed by the sheet Ill are closed by
plates I3, I3, each provided at its lower end with
a circular opening I4.
Journalled in the open- .
ings I 4 are cylindrical trunnions I5, I5, forming
parts of a cylindrical barrel I6 provided with an
axially extending measuring pocket I‘! and also
provided with a radially projecting stop ?nger I 8.
Arranged within the bight of sheet ID between ,.
the end walls I 3, I3 is a rectangular funnel I9
having inclined end and side walls so proportioned
at its largest width and‘ length as to contact the
opposed sides of sheet I0 and the end walls I3 and
with its end walls notched at their lower edges,
as indicated at 20, to contact and ?t the periphery
of barrel I6.
The upper end of the package is closed by the
top plate 22 which covers the opening formed by
the upper ends of sheet I0 and end plates I3.
The parts may be made of any suitable light
weight material, such as a relatively stiiT pulp
board, sheet metal, or preferably, one of the
cheaper plastics.
Barrel I6 having been placed in the bight of .
sheet I0, end plates I3 and funnel I9 are then
positioned, and parts I0, I3 and I9 suitably se
cured together. The space between the upper
ends of sheet I0 and end walls I3 is then ?lled
with the tooth powder and top plate 22 is ?xed
opposite extreme thereof.
I consider it quite desirable that the opening
I I be located in the front or rear wall of the body
I 0, and that the width of said opening be con
siderably less than ninety degrees of the arc of
barrel I6, and substantially equal to the periph
eral width of the mouth of the pocket H which,
in turn, should be greater than the width of the
mouth of the funnel l9.

By this arrangement, the user will have the
main body of the package in substantially hori—
zontal position at the time of extraction of ma
terial from pocket I‘! and if he is careless and
refrains from reversely rotating barrel I6 to the
position shown, in Fig. 2, any material remaining
in the pocket will lie therein without spilling.
I claim as my invention:
1. A dispensing package comprising a main
hollow body, comprising opposite side walls, a
front wall, a rear wall, and opposite end walls,
a transverse opening in said front-wall near one
end wall, aligned ports in said side walls near
said one end wall, a measuring barrel having
trunnions projecting from its opposite ends and
formed with a radially opening pocket, said trun
nions being journal mounted in said ports and
projecting therethrough, and said pocket, in one
position of said barrel relative ~to said main body,
registering with said transverse opening and in
another relative position communicating with the
