This invention relates-to certain new and useful lmprovementsr in a combined tobacco box and cigarette paperholder.
The primary objectof the invention is to.
provide a combined tobacco box and cigarette paper holder wherein the box is provided with a slotted bottom wall through which one side edge of a cigarette paper extends with a pack. of papers inter-folded within the bottom of the box beneath the tobacco contents so that when one cigarette paper: is
from the box. l
.A further object of the invention is to pro-L vide a combined tobacco box. and cigarette paper holder of the: foregoing character wherein a follower strip5 either metal,. cardboard or paper is superposed upon the pack of cigarette papers to separate them from the tobacco contents of the box and toprovide a seal atl the slotted end of the box to prevent the escape of tobacco through the cigarette paper delivery slot.
It is a further object of the "invention" to provide a device'of theforegoing character wherein the pack of cigarette papersis normallyconfined within the vbox'inwardly of the slotted bottom wallthereof with a pull cord adhesively or otherwiseattached to the lowermost cigarette paper to facilitate with 1glrawal of the first cigarette paper from the ox. a
With the above andother objects in View that will become apparent as the natureof the invention is better understood, the same consists in the novel form, combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter more fully described, shown in the accompanying drawing and claimed.
In the drawing V Figure 1 is a side elevational view of an ordinary form of tobacco can or box with which the present invention is associated;

Referring 'more in detail to the' accomfzr panying drawing, the reference numeral lO form of a follower with" the:endlfingersw designates a tobacco canor 'boxxhereinillus j trat'edj as being iof the collapsible type, the] present invention being associated with the: bottom wall 11 of the box.
As illustrated, the bottoinwall 1 1 is pro vided with acentral longitudinal-lyextending slot '12 through "which cigarette papers are adapted to be deivered'in a mannerto be ,I R As'shown more clearlyin Figures-3 and a presently described? i 4, the pack of .cigarettepapers LB is sup ported upon the bottom wall 11 of the box overlying-theslot 12 andsaid'paper'packlfi' I v i is retained in position by a follower plate-14 of the form illustrated'in' Figure 5 that fol lows the contour of theinnerface ofithe: box 10, the follower plate 14' resting upon-c the upper end of the paper pack 13 and have ing its edges wiping over the-inner'walls of the box. A'depen'ding finger 1 5 is carried by each endof the followerlplate ll and "6X4 tends outwardly of opposite ends of each? sheet of thepaper pack 13 for confining the? sheets in their related positions. Thetob'a c co material 16is filled in the box 12kabove. i
the follower plate 14 and is prevented from entering the cigarette paper compartment i therebeneathby' the follower plate 14;. p v
g The cigarette paperpack 13 comprises in dividual cigarette papers interfolded together with the edge of one cigarette paper "extending between the folds of an adjacent cigarette paper, the lowermost paper sheet of the pack 13 is initially confined'within thebox and has a pull cord '17-attached thereto as shown in Figure 4,-thelowermost paper of the pack being withdrawn through the bottom slot 12by means of the pullcord 13 and by the inter-fold connection between the sheets of the pack, the-next adjacent cigarette paper has one side edge thereof pro jected through the bottom slot 12 after the first or lowermost paper of the pack hasbeen completely removed so that the cigarette paper is always presented for ready use;
Asshown in Figure 7, the follower plate,

Also, the follower plate-wiping over the inner walls :of the box prevents the V escape of tobacco through the bottom slot 12 invention as claimed' and also operates to maintain the papers. of the stack in a neat and compact conditionand while there is herein shown and described the preferred embodimentsxof theinvention, it is nevertheless to be, understood that mi nor changesmay be madetherein without departing from the spirit andv rettepaper holder, the combination with a box having a slotted bottom-wall, of a pack of interfolded cigarette papers in the box overlying the bottom wall slot with the, side edge of each paper; positioned for projec-- ti'on through the slot, a follower plate on the i attached to the lowermost paper ofthe packto facilitate feeding of the papers through cigarette paper pack having depending, end fingers to confine the separate papers of the ack in a compact condition, and-apull cord the bottom wall slot.
