This invention relates to a smoker’s article,
particularly to a tray for holding cigarettes and
cigars, and has for an object the provision of
improvements in this art.
A particular object is to provide a support
adapted to hold a cigarette with a gripping action
and which will automatically extinguish it when
it has burned back to the gripping elements.
Another object is to provide a holder having a
Wide horizontal groove for supporting a cigar or
cigarette and for directing a cigarette into a
gripped or snuñing position in a smaller and
deeper groove at the end of the larger groove.

cigarette which is pushed more or less vertically
therein, as shown in the center of Figs. 2 and 3,
to snuff it. The bottom of the small groove is
open and slightly rounded and sloping on an arc
from the bottom of the large groove to the bottom
and outer end of the small groove. By continued
pushing a cigarette may thus be made to clean
the groove after the glow has been extinguished.
In any event, the ashes will drop out of the steep
bottomed groove by gravity and any succeeding
cigarette Will push out the stub of any preceding
cigarette which may be wedged in the groove.
