CIGARETTE-BOX.

matassa Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed ctober 4, 1913. Serial No. 793,419.

T all whom it mayconcern:

Be 1t known that we, AARON MENDELsoN and SHEPARn J'. GOLDBERG, citizens of the United States, and residents of the city of New York, borough of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Cigarette-Box, clear, and exact description.

Our invention has special reference to improvements in boxes for holding cigarettes and the like and more particularly to improved means for withdrawing the cigarettes in order to be grasped without handling or breaking the remaining cigarettes' in the box.

A further object of the invention is to provide a cigarette box which has a series of cells or compartments each designed to receive a cigarette, while the strips are arranged in said compartments or cells in such a manner as to project partially therefrom and extend beneath the cigarettes when the latter are in position, whereas when pull is exerted outwardly upon said strips the cigarettes are projected from their respective cells in such a manner as to be readily grasped by the fingers or by the teeth or mouth of the smoker and removed, thus obviating the usual handling and breaking of the cigarettes as occurs with-the ordinary boxes.

With the above and other objects in view, the invention resides more particularly in the perculiar combination and arrangement of parts which will be illustrated as a preferred embodiment in the accompanying drawings and described in the specification.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings forming a part of this `speciiication, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views, and in which- Figure 1 is a perspective view of the improved cigarette box, the same being shown in open position with the cigarettes therein and with one of the cigarettes projected from its cell or compartment; Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view of the box; and Fig. 3 is a vertical sectional view of the box in a closed position.

. In the illustrated embodiment of the invention, the box is indicated'by the numeral 5 and preferably consists of a single blank bent to provide a closure having front of which the following is a full,4

sition.

Y cell or compartment, as

and rear walls 6 and 7, an edge or side wall 8 and an edge or side wall 9 which is suitably attached to an edge portion of the rear wall as shown in Fig. 2 of the drawings'. Also formed of the blank is a bottom wall 10 which is similarly secured along one edge, while formed with the back of the box is a combined top wall 11 and closure iiap 12 which maybe secured to the front of the box in any suitable way. It will be observed that the flap 12 is bent substantially at right angles to the top wall 1l and is provided with a reduced tongue 13 designed to enter a slit 111 in the front wall of the box so as to retain the closure in an operative po- The box is also divided by a partition 15 extending from edge to edge of the same, and by partitions 16 disposed at right angles thereto and at equi-distantly spaced points vertically of the box to provide a series of compartments or cells each designed to receive a cigarette. or the like 17. In order to remove the cigarettes without handling the same in such a manner as to mutilate them, means are provided which are moved to operative positions when the cigarettes are loaded into the cells or compartments, which means is in the form of a flexible strip 18 preferably of readily breakable and waterproof or impervious material, such as oiled or parafiin paper and of a length approximately equal to twice the length of the cigarette or of one of the compartments. Each strip is anchored at one end, as shown at 19, to the partition 15- at a -spaced point from the upper edge thereof, whereby when the cigarettes are in position, such` strips will extend downwardlyv in Contact with the partition and upwardly adjacent the front and back walls, respectively, so as to pass beneath and around the cigarettes to form impervious linings, while the free ends of the strips will extend outwardly of the cells to provide grasping portions. By taking hold of one of' the strips and exerting pull thereon, the same is withdrawn from its cell or compartment, and the cigarette beneath which said strip is movable will be elevated or projected from the respective clearly shown in Fig. 1 of the drawings. Thus, the cigarette may be grasped by the hand or in the mouth of the smoker, the strips being severed each time that a cigarette is ejected. It will be Patented J une 29, 19215 observed that by attaching the strips to the box or its partition l5, below the exposed or top edge thereof, when pull is exerted upon the strips the cigarettes will be only partially projected from the box and thereby prevented from accidentally falling ont of the same until firmly grasped.

Having thus described our invention, what we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is 1. A dispensing box for cigarettes, including a body having a closure flap, a vertical partition in the boxextending across the same, transverse partitions intercepting Said first-mentioned partition dividing the box into two rows of a plurality of compartments across the box, and an independent ejecting strip of readily breakable material contained in each compartment for independently removing the cigarettes and ejecting the same one by one, the remaining cigarettes being undisturbed during such ejecting action.

2. A cigarette holding and dispensing box, comprising a blank folded to provide a closure having an open end and a cover for said end, partitions arranged at right angles to each other in said box to provide a plurality of rows of compartments vdisposed in pairs to contain cigarettes with one cigarette in each compartment, one of the partitions -being common to all of the compartments,

flexible strips of readily breakable and waterproof material secured to the opposed faces of the partition with one strip in each compartment below the exposed top edge thereof and passed downwardly beneath the cigarettes and -upwardly so as to project slightly from the box in edgewise relation at the front and rear thereof to provide linings in the compartments and grasping portions whereby when pull is exerted thereon the cigarettes may be independently projected partially from'the compartments.

3. A dispensing box for cigarettes including a body divided into a plurality of compartments transversely thereof, a closure for the body and an independent ejecting strip of readily breakable material contained in each compartment for independently removing the cigarettes and ejecting the same one by one, said strips being located in edgewise relation to each other.

4. A cigarette box, comprising a blank folded to provide a closure having an open end, a cover for said end having an extended flap, partitions arranged at right angles to each other in said box to provide a plurality of rowsof compartments designed to contain cigarettes, a flexible and readilj breakable strip of impervious material secured to the opposed faces of the partition of each compartment below the exposed edge thereof and passed downwardlybeneath the cigarette and upwardly so as to project from the upper ends of the compartments near the front and rear walls of the box in edgewise alinement to provide grasping portions adapted to overlap when the box is closed, said strips forming linings for the compartments throughout the widths thereof and being designed when pull is exerted thereon to partially project the cigarettes from the compartments and to be detached with the removing of the cigarettes.

5. A cigarette holding and dispensing box, comprising a body having top and bottom portions,partitions arranged in said box to pivovide a plurality of rows of compartments disposed in plural series to contain cigarettes and the like with one cigarette in each compartment, flexible strips of readily breakable material secured to the opposed faces of the partitions with one strip in each compartment below the top edge thereof and passed downwardly beneath the cigarettes and -upwardly so as 'to project from the box at or near nthe upper ends of the compartments to provlde grasping portions adapted to permit independent partial ejection of the cigarettes, said strips forming impervious linings for the compartments facilitating the free ejection of the cigarettes.

ln testimony whereof we have signed our names to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
