Claims:
CLAIM

1. What is claimed is the ornamental design for a box, as shown and described.

Description:

FIG. 1 is a rear perspective view of a box showing my new design;

FIG. 2 is a left side view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a right side view thereof;

FIG. 4 is a rear view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a front view thereof;

FIG. 6 is a top view thereof; and,

FIG. 7 is a bottom view thereof.

The components in broken lines depict environmental subject matter only and form no part of the claimed design. The bottom view is omitted, because it is flat and devoid of surface ornamentation.
