A sheet of cigarette paper 56 gummed at one
edge and previously moistened, is placed on web

Rod l5 continues in movement toward
the front end of slots ll passing over ?ngers 20 ~
which are being temporarily held behind by said
front wall of valley 25. Since web 34 is held
between ?ngers 20 and rod rollers l1 and I8,‘a
rolling motion is imparted to said web and it
assumes the form, substantially, of a rolling tube .
coiled around ?ngers 20. This rolling motion
rolls the cigarette paper 56 around tobacco 51,
thus forming a cigarette.’ When the cigarette’
passes over die 28, the monogram is printed upon
it. As rod l5 thus moves in a forward direction,
it engages and raises cam shaped arms 50 thus
