This invention relates to- tobacco pipes and its object is to provide a novel and effective arrange ment associated with the stem of a pipe for con trolling the liquid which inevitably accumulates in in the smoke duct of the stem while the pipe is being smoked. The invention consists of a pipe stem having a lateral recess intersecting its smoke duct, a removable closure for the mouth of the recess, a perforated disk supported in the recess transversely to the duct, and an absorbent pad in the mouth of the recess between the disk and the closure. As particles of liquid come into con tact with the disk they are de?ected onto the pad and quickly absorbed, thereby keeping the 15 smoke duct free of liquid in objectionable amount. The pad receiving cavity is readily accessible for removal and replacement of any suitable ab sorbent material. rI‘he invention is fully set forth in the following detailed description and illus 20 trated in the accompanying drawing, in which,— Figure 1 is a side‘view of a pipe constructed in accordance with my invention. Figure 2 is a sectional view on line 2-2 of Fig. 1, looking in the direction of the arrow. 25 Figure 3 is a sectional view on line 3--3 of Fig. 1. Figure 4 is a view showing disk located in re cess of pipe stem, the latter and a closure for the recess being shown in section on line 4-4 30 of Fig. 3. 3 Figure 5 is a view of the underside of the pipe stem with closure elements omitted. Figure 6 is a detail view of an absorbent pad. It will be noted that Figs. 2 to 6 inclusive are enlarged views. Like reference numerals desig nate corresponding parts throughout the several ?gures of the drawing. . Referring to the drawing, I is a pipe stem hav ing the usual smoke duct 2 and reduced end or 40 tenon 3 to ?t in shank 4 of pipe bowl 5. For receiving certain elements included in my inven tion, the stem, preferably about mid-way of its length, is provided with laterally extended re cess 6 which intersects smoke duct 2. The ’ mouth of this recess is enlarged to form a pocket ‘I for a purpose that will presently appear, and overlying the pocket is a closure 8 comprising a bowed resilient element, preferably of metal, which is hinged to a similarly formed part 9, the latter being adapted to closely fit and clip on to the pipe stem where both elements 8 and 9 snug ly ?t into the shallow peripheral channel I 0. While the closure 8, owing to its resiliency, is normally tightly held in closed position, it may 55 readily be released and opened for access to (Cl. 131-12) pocket 1, which is provided for holding an ab sorbent pads as I !. Above this pad in the recess 6 means are provided for de?ecting to the pad such liquid as may enter smoke duct 2. For sup porting such means which is preferably in the CI form of a plate or disk the sides of the recess are grooved as at I2 in a plane transverse to the smoke duct and into this groove are drilled op positely disposed holes 13 and i4. Inserted in groove I2 is the disk [5 having resilient ears 10 l6 and H which respectively spring into holes l3 and I4 and thereby serve to hold the disk se curely in place and assure a tight joint at its top and sides. Holes as l8 and I 9 in disk l5 permit smoke to pass therethrough but these holes are 15 out of alignment with the smoke duct 2 for the purpose of preventing a direct line draft through recess ii which would tend to interfere with the desired baliling effect of the disk which best per mits collection of particles of liquid thereon. In order to distribute liquid collected by the disk to different areas of the absorbent pad II in pocket 1, oppositely disposed prongs 20 and 2| are bent obliquely from the bottom of the disk so that they just enter pocket 1 to slightly press into a 25 pad contained therein. ' While I have illustrated and described but one convenient form of embodiment of the inven tion it is distinctly to be understood that it is not limited to the precise‘ construction set forth as it may be changed in many respects without departure from the scope of the invention as de ?ned by the appended claims. . Having thus described my invention, what’ I claim is, 35 1. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter secting the smoke duct, a perforated disk located transversely to the smoke duct in edgewise en— gagement with the walls of the recess and pre~ senting an extended edge in proximity to the mouth of the recess, a movable element for nor mally closing the mouth of the recess, and an absorbent pad held by the movable element against the extended edge of the disk. 1 2. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter 45 secting the smoke duct, a perforated disk sup ported between walls of the recess transversely to the smoke duct and merging into oppositely extended prongs adjacent the mouth of the recess, an absorbent pad in the mouth of the recess, and 50 a movable element for normally closing the mouth of the recess. 3. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter secting the smoke duct and a groove in the walls of the recess in a plane transverse to the smoke 55 2 10 2,115,981 duct, a perforated disk, means for holding the duct and having an extended edge in proximity disk in the groove in the recess with the perfo rations in non-alignment with the smoke duct and with an extended edge of the disk in prox imity to the mouth of the recess, a movable ele ment for normally closing the mouth of the re cess, and absorbent material adapted to be held between the movable element and the extended to the mouth of the recess, a movable element for part of the disk. 4. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter secting the smoke duct, a groove in the walls of norma11y closing the mouth of the recess, and absorbent material adapted to be held between the movable element and the extended edge of the disk. 5. A pipe stem having a lateral recess inter secting the smoke duct, a pair of elements seated in a peripheral groove in the stem, one of said elements being hinged to the other and normally 1(7 ing resilient ears integral therewith for engaging closing the mouth of the recess, a perforated disk supported between walls of the recess transversely to the smoke duct and presenting an extended edge in proximity to the mouth of the recess, and absorbent material between said edge of the disk 15 said holes to secure the disk in the groove, said and the oppositely disposed hinged element. the recess in a plane transverse to the smoke duct and oppositely disposed holes extended from the bottom of the groove, a perforated disk hav— disk being supported transversely of the smoke JOSEPH E.
