This inventionrelates to what is broadly friction fity or a screw'threaded connection, referred to as a smokers appliance because whichever is preferable.

This cap is formed with a centralopenf 70 constructed to accommodate filtering and abing `through which theimproved coupling sorbent material.4 passes. This coupling is inthe form of a.

Thus, e upon which Ythe invention, nerally desigwe. have a cylindrlcal container for an abnatedat' 10, -is mounted. cideitally .the sorbent and -lterin material wherein the ,5 connection may be through themedium of a .same abuts the mout piece,A is located in the sleeve 12 and'is connected to the mouth piece through the medium of the headed tubular coupling. The filtering device is preferably of a length less than the length of the aforesaid chamber 13 in Figure 1, thus providing a saliva collecting pocket here.
In Figure 6 I have shown a cigarette holder. In this instance the reference char- 4acter l1a designates the mouth piece and 12a the sleeve. The sleeve, which is made up of separable'telescopic sections, is constructed to accommodate the cigarette 27.
and therefore the same reference characters'- apply to corresponding parts. The form of the invention shown in Figure 7 is also very similar to the form presented in Figure2. However, attention is called to the fact that the container comprises a cup 29 which is closed at one end and open and screw thread- -ed rat its'opposite end, the 'opposite end receives the screw cap" 30 which carries the filtering screen 31.' Close to this screen is a. smoke intake port 32. -The cup is illed with a suitable absorbent 'and filtering material' 33. Otherwise the construction is-'the same.
In this arrangement, however, the container is of aA diameter considerably less than the. internal diameter of 'the sleeve 12. Thus, the.
incoming smoke encircles the filtering device or container and ndslts way into the same through theJ restricted portion L32.
In Figure, 7 it will be noted that the reference character 34 designates a portion of a pipe bowl which has its reduced neck telescopically fitted into'the end of the sleeve 12.
In this connection it is desired to pointout that the invention is ada table either to a pipe of a curved form, o a straight form,
or of some other conti ration, or to a cigarette holder, either o the solid `type or of the slidable ejector type.
Referring further to Figureit will be observed that the reference character 35 ,represents a sectional sleeve having a reduced end portion' 36 forming ,a guide `and bearing for the tubular cou ling 37 carried by the mouth piece 38. ere the unifying and saliva collecting device is of th coupling 37. Also threadedon this stem- `and interposed between the coupling 37 and e form represented for example in Figure? and therethe cap 30 is a plug or bushing 40 which fits tight joint.
From the foregoin ldescription and drawings it will be seen t at' I have evolved and produced a simple and inexpensive applilsnugl'y in the sleeve 35 to provide asmokeance, the principal feature of which is the flteringdevice which is so constructed as to purify and cool the smoke` Thus the smoker is assured of an enjoyable and appealing smoke of a more recreationalnature 'than is provided through the ordinary cigarette holder or pipe. The device is believed to be more sanitary than similar -devices and is regarded as thoroughly eiiicient in action.
Minor changes in the shape, rearrangement, and size, coming within the field of invention claimed may be resorted to if desired.
Having thus described the invention, what I claim as new is As a new product of manufacture, a'filtering device comprising an vopen ended internally screw threaded cylinder, a centrally apertured screw plug threaded in one end of the cylinder, a screw cap at the opposite endl of the cylinder having anexternally screw threaded neck threaded into the last named end of the cylinder, said screw. cap having a central opening, and atubular headed coupling member provided with an externally s cr'ewthreaded shank portion at one end ofwhich is a notched head, said shank portion passing through the opening in the screw cap with the headlocated within the neck portion ofthe cap, and ltering means in the cylinder between the plug and cap andincluding a strainer associated with the
