As best shown in Figure 3, the ends of the
cylindrical portions are closed, and each end
closure is provided with a semi-circular cut-away
portion 2| and 22, complemental to form a cir
cular aperture, eccentric to the axis of the cylin
drical cover, and as shown in Figure 3, being posi
tioned above the axis of the cover, through which
the ends of the roller M are adapted to pass. The
lower extremities of each member l5 and I‘! are
also cut away to form a slot 23. Each member is
bent outwardly adjacent the slot 23 to form lips
24 and 25, which serve as tearing edges for the
tissue carried by the roller l 4.
Means are provided for securing the two por
tions [6 and I‘! in related assembly, and such
means take the form of a. hook 26 pivotally
mounted, as on pivots 21, carried by the portion
to enclose the toilet tissue roll, and thus enhance
the ornamental appearance of the same.
A further object of the invention is the provi lo
sion of such a device which will protect such a
roll from dirt and dust, and thus improve the
sanitary qualities of the same.
Still another object of the invention is the pro
vision of such a device provided with a trans
versely extending slot through which the tissue
extends, having outwardly turned edges to fa
cilitate tearing of the tissue.
'
A still further object is the ‘provision of such a
device which will be sturdy and durable in con- ‘
struction, reliable and efficient in operation, or
namental in appearance, and relatively simple
and inexpensive to manufacture, assemble and
install.
Other objects will in part be obvious and in
part be pointed out as the description of the in
vention proceeds and shown in the accompany
ing drawings, wherein there is disclosed a pre
ferred embodiment of the inventive concept.

From the foregoing, it will now be seen that
there is herein provided an improved cover,
which may be readily applied to and removed
from an open toilet tissue holder merely by dis

toilet paper, which accomplishes all the objects
of this invention, and others, including many ad

cial importance.
It will be readily understood that various colors
and designs, such as ornamental pictures or the
like, may be placed upon the exterior of either
the member 16 or ll, if desired, and that the
members may be made of any desired suitable
parts throughout the several views of the draw
