Referring to the drawings,"in.the particulan embodiment of my invention therein shown, 10 is a casing oryhousing, which may be made of'sheet metal, of any preferred shape' .Gentrally disposed on the inner faces of the opposite side walls ofthe casing are guide strips 11. 2 1

The guide strips 11 serve as a means for slidably mounting a depressible cigar delivery member 12, the upper, portion of which is provided wit-ha, longitudinalfldepression 13. There is also provided a depressible cigarette delivery member 14-, which is slidably vmounted within the; cigar d elivery member 12. The upper portion of the cigarette delivery member s'al'so providedwith a depression 15,which;i 1ormally 'i orms a continuation of the depression .13 in the top of the cigar delivery member.

The cigar delivery member is provided with portions "16,,which extend cover the body portion of the cigarette delivery meinher, this arrangement being. provided "so that the cigarette delivery member may be 1 depressed independently of the cigar delivery member, but'on the other hand, when the cigar 'dellvery member is depressed, the;

cigarette delivery member will be carried with 1t.

Thecigar deliveryfmember is provided.

with .a bracket 17, which slidably engages an upright post 18, the lower end of which is secured to a portion of the casing. A coil i spring 19 is mounted upon the post1 8, and

has its lower end bearing against the por-. tion of the casing. to WlllCh the post '18 se cured, and its upper end bearing agalnst the bracket 17.

At the lower end of the cigarette magazine there is provided a slidable member 86, the upper portion of'which slopes toward the delivery members, as at 37 on one side, and

being fed toaway from the delivery members, as at 88 on the other side, for a'purpose to be presently explained. V

Devices of this character are in common, everyday'use, and as'the specific construction forms no part of the present invention, the same is not shown or described The upper hinged cover. portion of :the

cigar lighter 43 projects through thelid oi" the casing. The'button of the cigarlighter is adaptedto be engaged by a corrugated wheel 44, which is mounted on one end ofa-a horizontal shaft The shaft 45 is jour na-led insuitable brackets carried byflthe casing. I r.

The top of the casing is provided with a lid portion 48, hinged as at 49'ito the bod'y portion of the casing, and normally held closed by means ofa spring latch 50. By

zines will be impelled by thesloping bot-tom portions ofthe magazines toward the centrally arranged delivery members. a

' 'l vhen'it is desired togobtain va cigarette, the finger button 28 'is depressed,-whereby, through the. rod 27, the cigarette; delivery member 14 will be depressed to its lowermost 130siti )n, against theltension ot' the spring 25. As the bottom of the cigarette delivery member approaches its lowermost 1 posit on, the same will. encounter the projecting end 42 otthe lever 40, depressing the same and causing tlie'o ther end ofthe lever l0, to .elevate" the slide. nie'mber 36 against the tension of the springl'37.

' lVhen the parts are actuated as above set forth the-cigarette which lies lmmediatcly adjacent the vertical wall 53, in thelowe'r be pushed upWardly,'a1i-.d by reason of the slopend: of the cigarette magazine, will ing portion 37 of the top of the slide member, the cigarette will roll inwardly and lodge within the depressed portion 15 at the top ot the'cigarctte delivery member '14 which has been brought to the proper position by the depression thereof,

whence it may be removed by the user.

' As the cigarette delivery 'member thus passes upwardiy, the-free end of the spring 47 will encounter the ratchet wheel lti, ro-

one of the projections of thecOrrugated -wheel 4A in contact with the button of the cigar lighter. In this manner,'the cover of the cigar lighter'wilhbe released and the lighter caused 'to function in the cus- Should,however, a cigar be desired, the finger button 22 is depressed, and thereby,

through the rod 21 the cigar delivery member will" be depressed against the t i of the spring 19.

I T, It mayherebe'noted thatby reason of the engagement of the portions 16 of the cigar delivery member overlapping the cigarette delivery member, the cigarette delivery'member will becaused to be depressed with the cigar delivery member, so that there will be no break in the continuity of the upper surface of the delivery members.

However, the cigar delivery member is limited in its downward movement, so that whenever a cigar or a as the same reaches'itslowermost position, the depresed top portion. thereoi' will be brought to a position whereby a cigarwi-ll be permitted to roll from the magazine on to the same, r I

Upon the release of the finger button- 28,- the cigar delivery member will be impelled upwardly by means of the spring 19, until the upper portion thereof causes the cigar to be brought approximately flush with the top surfaceot the lid. y 7 V It may here be noted that whenever the cigar delivery member isdepres'scd as a'fore-J said, the cigarette deliverymember will be carried downwardly therewith, but to a less extent: than when the cigarette delivery member alone is depressed.

It may also be noted that when the mech- I anism above described is actuated for the purpose of obtaining a clgar from the cigar delivery member, the spring arm e7 which is willactuate the lighter mechanism, in its movement withthe cigarette delivery member so that the lighter will always function from its magazine.
