Among the highly creditable objects of this

lead magazine and fuel reservoir, it is of interest
to show the entire structure of the fuel reservoir
and its relation to the pencil mechanism recep

is operated by manipulation ‘of the ferrule 4 for
capacity for the igniting device without sub- ‘
stantially reducing space in the article of con
venient size for holding a good supply of lead.
Another of these objects is to reduce the essen

in which it is desired to claim all novelty which
the prior art permits.
I claim:
1. A lighter comprising a fuel chamber having
gitudinally on the exterior of the tubular casing
when the cap is attached to the tubular casing.
4. A friction lighter device for combination
with a pencil mechanism, comprising a tubular
fuel reservoir between two concentric tubular
bodies, a cover for one endrrof the fuel reservoir,
said cover being fastened 'to the outer tubular
body and having a narrow wick passage, a'wick
a surrounding side wall. a cover including a nar 40 projecting from within the fuel reservoir through
row wick passage, and a bottom closure, a?int bar
mounted in a channel on the exterior of the side
wall with one end of said bar contiguous to and
overlapped by said cover, a wick projecting from
the interior of the fuel ‘chamber throughsaid
wick passage to terminate above thev cover .. in
proximity to and above said end of the ?intbar,
a cap adapted to slide over the upperexterior
portion of said fuel chamber and thereby en

end spaced from the surfaceof said cover, means
for sealing the opposite end of the tubular fuel
reservoir, means for sealing the fuel reservoir
from the interior of the inner tubular body
which is adapted to contain a pencil mechanism
and lead magazine, a spark producing, member

direction of said igniting wick‘ end, with‘a por
the exterior of the fuel chamber side wall and
in position to function as a pocket clip when
the upper exterior portionof said fuel chamber
is enclosed by the cap.
2. In a device of the class described, a pencil
shaped casing, a fuel reservoir at one end, of
tion of said cover projecting over the sparkpro
ducing member mounted on the outer tubular
body, a cap adapted to be tightly attached to
the outer tubular body so as to enclose said
cover, said igniting wickend, and said spark
producing member mounted on the outer tubu
lar body when the lighter is notrin use, and! a
