To all whom it may concern:
Be itltnown that L-THOMAS lldgTERl/VILLL can, J12, citizen. of the United States, residing at W alden', in the county of Orange and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Cigarl-lolders, of which the following is a specification. V
This invention relates to smokers appliances and more particularly to receptacles which are adapted to hold lighted cigars andcigarettes, which may be conveniently carried in the pocket without danger of setting fire to the clothes of the user.
An object of this invention is the provision of a device of this character which may be readily folded and conveniently carried in the vest pocket when the same is empty.
Another object of this invention is the provision of adevice of this character wherein is provided suitable means for hold ing the cigar from contacting with the inner sides of the receptacle and will also prevent the ashes from touching the end of the cigar which is to be held in the mouth.
Other objects as well as the nature, characteristic features and scope of my invention will be more readily understood from the followingdescription taken in connec- }tion with the accompanying drawings and pointed out in the claims forming a part of this specification, wherein:--
Figure 1 is a side elevation of my improved device in closed position; Fig. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view of my improved device in extended position; Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of the device in closed position; and Fig. 4 is a cross sectional view taken on the line w-w of Fig. 8.
In the drawings wherein is shown the preferred form of my invention the numeral 5 designates one of the receptacles or members which is of a preferably cylindrical shape and is formed of metal or anyother suitable material being of a diameter somewhat larger than that of the opposite receptacle 6 which is adapted for sliding engagement with the receptacle 5. The member 6 has an annular head 7 formed on the eXterior thereof and adjacent its closed end 8, one end of the cylindrical member 5 being also closed as indicated at 9. The head 7 as illustrated to advantage in Fig. 1 limits the relative inward movement of the sections, but at the same time permits the sections to be substantially housed one within 7 Specification of Letters Patent.

the other, so as to occupy a minimum amount of spacerwhen not in use.
Slidably and detachably mounted in the section 5 is a cone-shaped open ended member 10, which has one'of its terminals turned at right angles to the body, to provide'an annular liange 11, forming an abutment to engage the open end of the section 6, therebeen in the month, since the outer or larger end of the sleeve is snugly engaged with the inner periphery of the section 6, thereby closing communication through said section, beyond the exterior of the sleeve. Slots12 are formed in the sleeve to emit ashes therethrough upon the insertion of the lighted end of the cigar into the sleeve, permitting the ashes to fall into the section 6. When it is desired to clean out the section 6, the sleeve 10 is first detached, thereby allowing the contents of said receptacle or section 6 to be readily dispensed.
It is of course understood that this device is likewise adaptable for use in holding cigarettes, the only refinement necessary when utilized in this capacity, is to make the parts relatively smaller. I
It will be understood that the above description and accompanying drawings comprehend only the general and preferred embodiment of my invention and that various minor changes in detail of construction, proportion'and arrangement of the partsmay be made within the scope of the appended claims and without sacrificing any of the advantages of my invention.
Having thus fully described my inven tion, what I claim as new and desireto secure by Letters Patent is 1. A device of the character described including a plurality of correspondingly slidable sections, a substantially cone-shaped sleeve slidably mounted in one end of one of said sections having one ofthe marginal edges thereof turned at right angles to the body for engagement with one end of the section in which it is mounted for limiting the movement of the same in said section.
2. A device as set forth including a pair of corresponding telescopic sections, a sleeve slidably and detachably mounted in one of g r I 1,143,463
said sections and tapered toward one end to venting its entrance into the opposite sec- 1e conform substantially to the shape of a tion, anda flange formedon; the sleeve for cigar for holding the latter in spaced rela limiting 1ts movement 1n the sections.
