Paper Boxes Substituted for Tin.
A few years ago a process of paper-box
manufacturing was invented, which has
since placed paper, the rival of so many
materials, in the position of a strong
rival of tin in packages for certain articles
of commerce. Previous to this invention
the great objection to Usinft
round paper boxes for small packages;
wnen tin was commonly used, was that
the covers, being in two. pieces (a disk
and a rim), were not durable or safe
enough to fill the requirements of frequent
handling. Under the new process
? or covers of the box are
drawn from a single piece of straw
board, so that not onlv is thpr rm co
rating of a disk from the rim by use, but
there is no seam through which the contents
of the box can find its way. The
body of the box is cut from naTwr tno
made of several thicknesses of a light
weight of straw board or heavy straw
paper. Almost anv'desirP.rT tUniniJeAr. .
