This permits ready insertion or removal of the cigarette and ready dumping of the ashes from the holder, and the hinged member is normally yieldingly closed by employing a spring at 11'. Obviously, the cigarette may be engaged in the 10 portion of the socket in that part of the mouth piece which is integral with the body of the mouthpiece," and when the hinged member is subsequently allowed to close, the inner endof the cigar or cigarette will be ?rmly held or 15 clamped in place in the socket ‘I. On the other hand, when the hinged member isswung to the‘ open dotted line position of Figure 4, the butt of the cigar or cigarette will-v be immediately re leased. To_ facilitate swinging of the hinged '20 member to the dotted line open position of Fig ure ,4, saidmember may be provided at its inner hingedrend with a ?nger-piece [8 upon ‘which downward pressure. may be exerted for causing swinging of the said hinged member‘ to open 25 position.
