Specification forming part of Letters Patent No. 206,819, dated August 6, 1875; application filed July 19, 1878.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, ADOLPH PEARL, of the city and county of New York, State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Gigarettes; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which- Figure 1 is a View of the cigarette complete. Fig. 2 is a view of the cigarette before the outside wrapper is applied. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of the cigarette complete.

The object of my invention is to provide a tobacco-wrapped cigarette constructed with a tubular-mouthpiece, which shallbe surrounded by the external wrapper of the cigarette, disof the cigarette is not marred by the paper or other mouth-piece showing, thereby making a neater and more merchant-able article for the trade 5 and my invention consists in a filling wrapped with a tobacco binder inserted into the end of a short tubular mouth-piece made of paper or other analogous material, and then Wrapping the entire filler, binder, and mouthpiece with a tobacco-leaf wrapper.

In order that those skilled in the art may make and use my invention, I will proceed to describe the manner in which I have carried it out.

In the said drawings, A is afilling, and surrounding it is a binder or roughwrapper, B, to hold the filling together. The filling thus prepared and the binder are inserted into the end of a short tubular month-piece, (7, made of paper or any other suitable material. The whole body of the cigarette as thus prepared, including the filling, binder, and mouthpiece, is Wrapped throughout its extent with a tobacco-leaf covering or wrapper, I).

It will be observed that the cigarette appears to be formed entirely of tobacco throughout its extent, and its merchantable character is not injured by marrin g the appearance of the cigarette by a visible paper mouth-piece, while the insertion of the mouth-piece gives the smoker an elastic medium for the teeth to hold the cigarette, and prevents any shorttobacco from entering his mouth.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

A cigarette composed of a filler, A, surrounded by a tobacco-leaf binder, 13, inserted in mouth-piece C, and the whole surrounded by the outer tobacco-teat wrapper, substantially as described.
