The present invention relates to mouth- `pieces for cigars and cigarettes and consists .in the combinations and arrangements of ele- `ments hereinafter described and particularly set forth in the accompanying claims.
The purpose of the invention is to provide ya device which will kee the cigarette dry and effectively prevent t e nicotine and tobacco fibres from entering the mouth and 1@ which will not offer any inconvenience or hindrance to the pleasure of smoking. The article is furthermore of the utmost simplicity and in its use is absolutely concealed from View.
A further object is in having the article of such structure that it may be incorporated into the body of the cigarette or cigar during manufacture, or may equally well be designed as a separate and independent device to be l 2o convenientl applied to the cigarette at the time of smo ing.
The devices shown herein are proposed as further improvements over .the similanaijticles disclosed in my co-pendingapplications for U. S. Letters Patent, and issued U'. S.
patents, to wit:

The invention is shown by way of illustration in the accompanying drawing, wherein: Figure 1 is a perspective view-showing a ci arette with the article attached.
igure 2 an end elevational view thereof. Figure 3 a detailed perspective view illustrating the manner of vapplying the article. Figure 4 shows the blank from which the article is formed. A a.
Figure 5 shows a modified construction of 60 the device.
Figures 6 and 7 are views corresponding to i Figures 3 and 4 above.
Figure 8 shows another modified construction, and
Figures 9, 10 and 11 are views showing a u55 further modified construction and correspond to Figures 5, 6 and 7 above. y
Referring to the construction in further detail, and wherein the same reference characters designate corresponding parts in the different figures, 15 represents an ordinary cigarette to the end 16 of which is adapted to be attached the article shown herein.
This end ofthe cigarette is in no way altered whether the device be incorporated in the cigarette when made or applied thereto as a separate attachment. The article may be of large or small size accordingly Ias the smoker desires to puff lightly or inhale deeply and fully, as will be understood.
.The device per se consists of a thin piece of paper 17 having one side edge notched or serrated to provide a plurality of tabs or flaps 18 and said strip is adapted to be wrapped once around the end 16 of the cigarette and suitably secured by adhesive around the end edge 19 as shown.
The several flaps or tabs 18 are folded iiiwardly and against the tobacco at the end of the cigarette as shown in Figure 1 and provide a central orifice or opening 20 through which smoke passes as will be understood. In their inturned or applied position as iii Figures 1 and 2 said flaps are held lightly together by their over-lapping side portions by suitable adhesive.
In the construction vshown in Figures 5, 6 and 7 the strip 22 is formed with a plurality` of apertures 23 notched as at 24 providing the lseveral flaps or tabs 25 that are folded 90 inwardly land against the tobacco as shown in Figure 5. In this relation the apertures 23 and the central opening 26 permit the smoke to pass freely into the mouth though prevent the tobacco fibres from doing so.
In the arrangement shown in Figure 8 the construction is similar to that in Figures 5, 6
and 7 and in this instance the several apertures 27 are located just at the edge of the cigarette wrapper while in Figuref5 said 100 apertures are located slightly inwardly of said edge.
In the arrangement shown in Figure 9, l0 and 11 the paper strip 28 is formed with tabs 29 having rounded edges as distinct from the straight and squared edges shown in Figure 4, and in this instance there is a small aperture 30 formed in each tab. Said apertures 30 and the central opening 3l provide for the free passage of smoke and prevent the passage of tobacco libres as will be understood.
It is to be understood the invention is not limited to the details of construction here 5'shown and described, as these maylbe varied widely Without departing from the scope of the invention as defined by the claims.
What is claimed as lnevv is:
1. A mouthpiece for #a cigarette, comprising a paper strip adapted to encircle the cigarette end and having tabs adapted to be bent into contact with the tobacco of the cigarette, the tabs when bent having their side edges in overlappin relation and having an annular series o openings for the passage of smoke, and the tabs being adapted when bent to have their free ends arranged in slightly spaced relation to provide an opening con centrically related to said annular series of openings and also providing forthe passage of smoke.
bent into contact with the tobacco of the cigarette, the tabs being adaptedwhen bent to have their side edges arranged in overlapping relation and to have their free ends arranged in slightly spaced relation to provide an opening for the passage of smoke, and the tabs being provided in their side edges With notches' which, when the tabs are bent provide an annular series of openings surrounding said irst opening and also providing for the passage of smoke.
3. A mouthpiece for a cigarette, comprising alpaper strip adapted to encircle the cigarette end and having tabs adapted to be bent into contact with the tobacco of the cigarette, the tabs being adapted when bent to have their side ledges arranged in overlapping relation and to have their free ends arranged in slightly spaced relation to provide an opening for the passage of smoke, and the tabs being provided in their side edges with notches which when the tabs are bent provide an annular series of openings each extending across the edge of the cigarette and also providing for the passage of smoke.'
