To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ALLISON A. HAVEN, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combined Tobacco, Match, and Paper Receptacles, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to a device adapted to be used as a holder of smoking tobacco and paper wrappers, for use in the making of cigarettes, and of matches for igniting the same.

The objects of the invention are to obtain a device closely resembling, in appearance, tobacco boxes in common use; and which at the same time will contain in different compartments thereof, tobacco, cigarette paper wrappers and matches.

Further objects are to obtain a device which is easily manipulated to obtain therefrom either tobacco, wrappers, or matches.

To obtain a device of the character named which will not be expensive to construct, which will be durable and not liable to et out of order. Other objects are set forth n the description and claims.

I have illustrated a device embodying this invention in the drawing accompanying and forming a part hereof in which,

Figure 1, is a perspective view of a device, embodying the invention. Fig. 2, is a perspective of the tobacco and paper receptacles of the device with the covers thereof removed, Fig. 3, is a perspective view of the match receptacle and cover thereof, said cover being opened, Fig. 4, a vertical sectional view of the match receptacle, on line 4-4 of Fig. 3, viewed in the direction indicated by the arrows. Fig. 5, is a perspective of the cover of the paper wrapper receptacle removed therefrom. And Fig. 6, is a plan View of a blank from which the match receptacle and coveris obtained.

A reference character applied to designate-a given part indicates said part throughout the several figures of the drawing wherever the same appears.

A are the side and end walls of the combined tobacco and paper wrapper receptacle. B, Fig. 2, represents the open end of the tobacco portion of said combined receptacles, and C represents the paper wrap er portion thereof. Receptacle C is obtaine by forcing Specification of Letters Patent.

inwardly a portion of one of the sides of walls A, as at .C Fig. 2.

D is the cover of the open end B of the tobacco receptacle, and is hinged thereto in the manner hereinafter described. Said cover D also forms the match receptacle of the device and is provided with a cover (1 which is hinged thereto. Said hinge is illustrated as consisting simply of the ear extending out from the side of the cover J; and inserted in recess 6 hereinafter described and bent into cylindrical form. This .cover 03 is illustrated as closed in Fig. 1, and as opened in Fig. 3, being turned upward on hinge d (1 is a turned down portion of one side of the cover d and 03 (Figs. 3 and 4) is a recessed portion of one of the side walls of the cover D, which is adapted to receive the turned down portion (Z of said cover, tending to hold it closed.

The manner in which the cover and match receptacle D is made, as illustrated in the drawings, is as follows:

Blank E, Fig. 6, is made in the ordinar way by dies. E and e is a cut in said blank. The recess (i before described, as pressed or formed in 'said blank E, is illustrated in this figure.

Blank E with the before named cuts and recesses therein is bent or formed up on the broken lines F, f, f. By the bending or forming last above named, there is obtained, between the periphery of said blank and the lines F, the part G which is substantially at right angle to the part H, and forms the outer edge of the cover D (see Figs. 1 and 3) the ortion of said blank between lines f, i, which is lettered h and forms the ends of the match receptacle in said cover D; and the portion of said blank letters 12. which is between the broken lines f and the cut e (in Fig. 6) which forms the bottom of said match receptacle. The edges which are made by cut e are lettered k in Fig. 3, and said edges are separated by said bending on lines f, f, as hereinbefore described, so that an aperture is obtained between said edges which is indicated by the reference character 1, in Fig. 3.

J are ears on one side of blank E, which ears are turned up to receive pintle K, thus forming a part of the hinge by means of which said cover D is attached to one side of walls A, and said side is provided with e,-@ are slots or cuts in blan ears which are turned over in like manner, to form a part of the hinge as is represented by the part which is indicated by character L, Figs. 1 and 2: Thus completing the bin e attaching said cover D to the walls A. is a recess in one of the sides of the walls A. When cover D is closed onto the'ends of said walls A the hinge d may enter or engage with said recess M, tending to hold the cover closed. v

The cover N to the paper receptacle C is illustrated in Fig. 5, and comprises a rectangular sheet of sheet metal having an ear at one end thereof, which is bent into a cylindrical form adapted to receive the pintle K, thus forming a part of the hinge attaching said cover to the upper edge of one of the sides of the walls A.

Cover N is also provided with additional ears at'the opposite end which are bent to obtain part a (substantially at right angles to the body of said cover) and parts n which are substantially parallel with said body. The space between parts a of said ears and said body is indicated by the reference character MP, in Fig. 5, and this space is adapted to receive the ends of cigarette wrappers, as is indicated by the broken lines'which are lettered O, in said figure. The part 11) of said last named ears is ada )ted to, engage with the end one of walls (.l of receptacle C,'tending to hold said cover N closed. The recess P which is illustrated in the end wall C is merely to permit the insertion of a finger nail underneath the end of the cover N to open said cover. By making cover N of thinductile metal, as sheet tin, the parts 01, may be forced down on to the face of thepaper wrappers (0) held therein, as sheets of said wrappers are removed, to hold the remainder thereof to said cover.

When cover D is turned down onto the Copies of this patent may be side and end walls A said side walls may enter the space formed in said cover by the rectom whereof consist of a portion of the top of said cover forced out therefrom and the sides whereof consist of the sides of said cover, with an additional cover hinged to register with the opening in the first named cover which results from the forcing of said ends and bottom of the additional receptacle out therefrom.

2. A receptacle, comprising side and end walls, in combination with a cover, provided with an additional receptacle and a hinge joining said receptacle and cover, said cover provided with an aperture adapted to form the open side of said additional receptacle, and a cover to said aperture, one of said side walls provided with a recess forming an additional receptacle, a cover to said additional receptacle and means on said last named cover to retain paper thereon.

3. A receptacle comprising side and end walls, one of said side walls provided with a recess forming an additional receptacle, in combination with covers, said covers hinged to one end of said recessed side, the pintle of said hinge being common to said first named receptacle, and to said covers, and the cover to said first named receptacle provided with an additional receptacle and with a hinged cover to said additional receptacle.
