(Cl. 229-25) This invention relates to a receptacle, and more particularly to such a, receptacle adapted to be with a transverse slot 20, the slot 20 in one of the utilized as a sputum cup. that in the other, for a purpose to be described hereinafter. Each of corner portions I3 is pro end wall portions being of greater length than A primary object of this invention is the pro vision of an improved sputum cup, adapted to be vided with two angularly disposed cuts ZI, ex tending to the exterior of the blank, and ter like, to provide a sanitary, easily destroyed, rela minating at the apex of a triangular cut-away tively leak-proof receptacle of such character. portion 22. An additional object is the provision of such a In the formation of the device, the end walls `device which may be readily and simply molded 10 i I and I2 are bent upwardly along the fold lines from a flat blank of material. I4, and the corner portions I3 are bent inwardly Still another object is the provision of such a with respect thereto, being bent inwardly with receptacle provided with a cover which may be respect to the fold lines I5, and outwardly with securely affixed thereto, in such manner that up respect to the fold lines I6, as best shown in Fig setting of the receptacle will not result in the 15 ure 5. After the folds have been completed, the formed from a single blank of cardboard or the spilling of the contents. Other objects will in part be obvious, and in part be pointed out as the description of the invention proceeds, and disclosed in the accom panying drawings, wherein there is shown a pre projecting portions I 3a, formed above the slots 2 I, form tabs, the slots 2| now being in alignment, 20 which tabs are adapted to be passed outwardly through and engaged in slots I1. It will be noted that the outer or upper ends of the end portions II which have the slots 2D, project outwardly or upwardly beyond the corner portions I3.
