  1. The ornamental design for an outer tube for a tampon inserter, and described.

FIG. 1 is a side elevational view of an outer tube for a tampon inserter embodying my new design;

FIG. 2 is an end elevational view of the same as seen from the top of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is an end elevational view of the same as seen from the bottom of FIG. 1; and,

The characteristic feature of my design resides in the specific configuration of the uniformly rounded sinusoidal ribs extending along the base of the tampon inserter body.
