A fiirthr' featfi'r resides in the manner of retaining a roll of paper within the housing. The above and other objects, features and advantages of the invention will become more clearly ap- 35 parent from the following detailed specification in which is described a preferred form of the invention as illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which:
Fig. l is an elevational view, partly in section,
40 of an instrument as at present contemplated, the device being shown as ready for the removal of some of the paper roll.
Fig. 2 is an enlarged cross-sectional view as taken on the line 22 of Figure 1.
45 Fig. 3 is an elevational view of the device as closed and after removal of a portion 01' the paper roll.
Fig. 4 is an enlarged cross-sectional view, similar to Figure 2, but with the removed paper por- 50 tion ready to be severed from the roll.
Fig. 5 is a fragmentary detail view of means for retaining the paper roll within the holder.
Fig. 6 is a broken view of the top portion of an alternate form of instrument.
The holder l comprises a preferably metallic il e haizii e si ii eprii iis a d para ed b e-iiiie ieeiler the like 1 dg of w i h sm a shou der; he p os o wh ch will Elfifiii y fiBBfifiFr. I

The sleeve 24 is also formed with a longitudinal slot 26 somewhat wider than the slot M in the tube and the mentioned pin I8 is of sufi'icient length to engage against the walls 21 and 28 of the slot 26.
In use, the cap I6 is removed so a roll of 40 paper R may be placed within the tube ll, care being taken, however, to have the free end of the roll projecting from the slot l4, substan tially as shown in Figure 2. The capis now replaced and the wall 28 of the sleeve 24 is moved against the pin 18. If there is an excess of paper projecting beyond this wall, it is re- .moved by tearing along said wall at 29. It will be noted that the paper roll is not carried on any spindles, but is free to assume its position within the hollow of the holder. It may either expand or retain its tight wound condition, without affecting the operation of the instrument.
When a piece of paper is wanted, the sleeve is moved so its wall 21 engages the pin "3. This condition is shown in Figures 1 and 2. The paper end P is now free to be grasped and pulled to the length desired. The sleeve 24 is now re-rotated to its initial position with its wall 28 against the pin l8. This condition is shown in Figures 3 and 4. The paper end P may now be removed by tearing along the edge 29 as previously disclosed.
It will be noted that the remaining free end of the paper is gripped between the sleeve and tube and, therefore, cannot inadvertently fall back into the roll chamber of the tube. Also,
this paper end is thus provided with folds or creases as it is trained through the slot l4 and these folds or creases also serve to prevent the paper end from falling into the roll chamber when the sleeve 24 is moved to the position shown in Figure 2.
A simple manner of insuring the securing of a A pencil 30 in said holder is to slit the tube portion l2 as at 3| to provide said portion with gripping resiliency. The tube portion l2 may also be arranged to house a mechanical pencil mechanism, if desired.
In order to insure that a suflicient amount of paper protrudes through the slot l4 and yet not necessitating the forming of the sleeve slot 26 of too great a width, the design shown in Figure 6 may be employed. In this form the pin I8 is arranged to be readily moved out of its slot l9 by the wall 2! of the tube 24 to uncover the slot 14 and as the tube 24 is turned to move the pin 18 back into the slot IS, a considerable amount of paper is gripped between the inner wall of the sleeve 24 and the outer wall of the tube I l It is therefore apparent that because of the increased travel of the sleeve 24*, a greater amount of paper is afforded for ready grasping.
While the device has been described as for dispensing memo paper, it is obvious that a web or wound strip of any other type and for many other purposes may be dispensed from the device, as for instance, postage stamps, bridge scores, facial tissue, etc., etc. If it be desired to hold a roll of facial tissue, the holder may be combined with a lipstick instead of the writing implement.
From the foregoing it is apparent that a simple combination instrument has been provided, but
while disclosed in its present preferred embodiments, many immaterial changes in the construction, arrangement and proportion of the parts, may be made by those skilled in this art, hence the scope of the invention is intended to be limited only by the scope of the following claims.
1. A device of the character described comprising a tube having an intermediate shoulder, a sleeve on said tube, said tube and sleeve being coextensively slotted through to one end thereof, and a cap engageable in the end of the tube to close the ends of said slots, said cap having a portion for positioning said sleeve between said shoulder and cap.
2. A device of the character described comprising a tube having an intermediate shoulder, a sleeve on said tube, said tube and sleeve be- .ing coextensively slotted, a cap engageable in the end of the tube and having a portion for positioning said sleeve between said shoulder and cap, said sleeve being adapted for rotatable movement about said tube, and means projecting from the side of the tube into the slot of said sleeve for engaging the edges of said slot.
3. A device of the character described comprising a slotted tube adapted to receive a roll of paper, a-slotted sleeve around said tube and coextensive therewith, and means in removable engagement with the tube and having an abutment for engagement with the walls of the slot in the sleeve adjacent one end thereof for definitely limiting the rotation of said sleeve on said tube.
4. A device of the character described comprising a tube having an abutment intermediate its length, said tube being longitudinally slotted from the abutment to one end, a sleeve on said tube coextensive with said slot, said sleeve being longitudinally slotted for its entire length, a cap removably .engageable in the end of said tube and having a" shoulder for retaining said sleeve on said tube, said cap being also adapted for retaining' a roll of paper within the hollow of said tube, and means carried by the tube engageablewith the walls of the slot in the sleeve for limiting the relative rotation of the tube and sleeve for'uncovering the slot in the tube and for covering said slot.
