Romine's patent has "a rectangular box or chest of convenient and suitable size to hold an ordinary bag of flour and one of meal, and still leave room for a sifting apparatus and receiving pans." The inventor explains that "it will readily be seen that this forms a most convenient and economical chest, free from vermin of all kinds, as also from dust and trash. The bags can be easily removed and cleansed when at any time they become musty." (Patent Number 201,557)
