Yostor iny being n rainy tiny m this city nnd h fltihurbt, umbrellas swarmed in tlio strcctH and dripjxjd hll, over pooplo in the Htroet cars. t Most of' thoso umbrel las wuro comparatively now, nnd tho fact 8iiggOHt tho question: What be comes of old umbrellas? Thoro aro at present In this country at least twenty-four millions of privato umbrellas, exclusive of thoso remaining unsold In manufactories and shops. Eaoli umbrella-owner buys atloat ono now umbrella overy year, Ids 'previous ono having been stolen, lost or worn out. We thus see that thoio la an an tiiml imimrunt dlsannoaranco of twontv- four millions of umbrellas, and tho mo iiiont wo fully comprehend this fact wo perceive tho Importance of tho question: What becomes of these umbrellas? Wo may ndmlt that many of them aro stolen. Men who would not steal a ono cent post ago stamp will, nevertheless, feci no hesitation in seizing upbV any umbrella that is temporarily sopHiratod from ltd owner nnd In carrying It olf with triumph. About ouo-sixth of tho title to all umbrellas now in aotivo uso is nrobablv of this soml-folonlous nature. There is said to bo a rich umbrolla-sell-or in this city whoso stock costs him ab solutely nothing, sinco it is collected 'by playing u on the consciences of his fol-low-mon. Ho walks along Broadway, and when ho sees a desirable umbrella lie stops tho man who is carrying It and remarks: Kxcuso mo. my friond, but you havo my umbrella." Atleastovory fourth man thus stoppod knows that his title to tho umbrella in his possession will not onduro Investigation, and so ho hastily surrenders tho umbrella, remark ing as ho docs so: "I was looking for an owner for it, and intended to send it tojTolioa headquarters this afternoon." .Onjovefy .'overcast mid threatening day ims ingenious couocior -woo is aiways followed by a boy with a hand-cart Sathcrs In from sovonty-flvo to ono hun red umbrellas, which ho afterward sells at tho usual rotall prlco. But, conceding that ono-slxth of our notlvo umbrellas aro stolon or aold for the second tlmo, thcro still remain olirhteen millions of umbrellas whoso annual disappoaranco is to bo accounted for. Lot us assume that of this numbor two millions aro furnished with now covers and a fresh coat of varnish, and so re-enter into circulation as now um brellas. Still there aro sixteen millions more which vanish utterly from tho faco of tho earth. In tho case of tho disappearance of pins a familiar subject which has oc cupied, for many years, tho attention of our statisticians and other-. wluntUhj persons it " is easy to say tli.it tlioii' small size enables them to successfully conceal themselves. Old umbrellas havo not this advantage Next to a hoop-skirt, an old umbrella is tho most obtrusive thing in nature. Not only does it refuse to conceal Itsolf, but ft attacks ovory ono who comes within its reach, and clings desperately to his logs and garments. Its ribs protrude in all directions, Ilka the tentacles of the oc topus, and no amount of foroo or ingo mtity can compress it into a small simeo. To got rid ot an old umbrella will bo soon, on rotlootion, to bo apparently ono of tho most nbstruso and tUlUuult of probloms. It is well established that old umbrol las aro not kept in houses. Tho house wlfo when questioned as to what has bo como of any given old umbrella will always reply vaguoly: "Oh, it has boon thrown away." Of eourso, this cannot bo understood literally. If sixteen millions of old umbrellas wore thrown into tho street overy year thoy would bo ... . . r - . - . . blown about in clouds muoh thicker than tho ordinary city dust cloud, and thoro would not bo a horso or pedestrian in oxistonco who had not sustained in juries from old umbrella riba. When tho housewife throws away " an um brella it unquestionably vanishos, but what slio calls "throwing away" is obviously a peculiar and mystorlous act. Hasty thinkers may assume that old umbrellas aro cast out Into vacant lota, whoro thoy aro promptly devoured by goats. This may soem a plauslblo tnoory to any ono but a zoologist. Tho lattor knows, however, that whllo tho goat may bo roughly described as an omnivorous animal lie is not umbrcl livorous. Undoubtedly goats do cat hoop-skirts, and In tho days when hoop skirts were fashionable, thousands of goats woro fattened upon them ex clusively. Tho umbrella has so many of tho characteristics of tho hoop-skirt that ono would naturally suppose that it would tempt tho appetite of goats, but it Isawoll-ascortalnodfaet that forsomo unexplained roason no goat will touch an umbrella, except whon sutVorlng from starvation. Prof. Tyndall kept a goat for povon days without food, and otlorcd him an old umbrella ovory dav, but tho goat would nottouch it until the seventh day, wnon, oeing ovorcomo wiin hunger, ho ato three ribs and part of tho handle, and died two hours later with symptoms closely resembling thoso pro duoed by strychnine. This oxporiment may bo regardod as conclusive, and wo must acquit tho goat of all share In causing the disappoaranco of umbrollu.. To somo extent it is possible that old umbrellas aro used in ohoap restaurants, tho ribs being served up under tho namo of asparagus, but only a very small pro portion of sixteen millions of umbrellas can bo annually used hi this way. Nolthor docs tho occasional uso of an umbrella as a club by a vigorous female Toformor havo any real ooarlng upon tho subject, Thoro Is positively no theory which satisfactorily accounts for tho disappearance of old umbrollas, and it is tho imperative duty of scientific porsons to Inveint a theory without further, dola; Trnly. wo llvo in luworld of mystory, ami nonthinking hint! can look id IiIh umbrella5 and asK himself whoro IF will go when it is worn out without feeling that ho stands on tho shoro of an ocean of unexplored truths. A. Y. Times. . . ...... A Court Defied. A honrlng boforo Judgo Finlcttor yes terday on tho petition of Henry Histino, of No. 2,221 Frankford avenue, to ob tain tho custody of his child, ended in an extraordinary scene, in which a mother's lovo dolicd and defeated a de cree of court. An order had been made upon llisllno sovon years ago for the support of his wlfo nnd little one. Ho had fallen $1G0 behind in his payments. Tho present notion, tho solicitor for tho guardians of tho noor suggested, was possibly only a shift to escape tho pay ment of that indebtedness. Histino, iiowovor, charged that his wife was not a proper porson to havo control of tho child. Testimony was produced to show that Caspar Khaw, a man who had abandoned a Wife and six children, lived in Mrs. Illstino's houso, at No. 2,257 Momphis street. She had gone nut rid ing with him, sometimes alono and sometimes with tho child. She had ac companied him to Atlantiu City one time, and onco went with him to a beer saloon. . Mrs. IUstinc on hor part admitted tho carrlagorldlng nnd the visit to Atlantic City. Sho strenuously denied, however, that sho had been cullty of any creator violation of tho properties. Sho had ac cepted Shaw as a boarder, sho said, be cause the sum ho pnid her eked out tho llttlo her husband was forced to give her and the ipittanco sho earned by sowing. Mrs. Ilistino'B brother testified that he had .occupied tho room with Shaw up to four months ago, whon ho loft his sis tor's houso to got married. A largo number of wltncssos, chlclly women of respoetnblo appcaranco, testlfiod that Mrs. Histino was quiet, inoflensive and industrious mid treated her child with proper consideration. A letter from a teacher said that tho child was a con stant and apparently happy attendant at school. Further testimony tended to show that Histino was given to drink. Ills coun sel said that ho would not ask that tho child bo given to him direct, but that it bo awarded to Its crandmothor. Mrs. Histino' s counsel pleaded warmly against tho child being taken away from its mother at all, and contonded that a case to warrant such a proceeding had not been mado out.

Apropos of this, I heard rather" a good story tho other day of a butlei who applied for a situation in a fir3t-rato family at the West End. Tho man gavo as referonco his lato em ployer! n certain Mr. A., then staying at the Grand Hotel, Charing Cross, who was to bo scon thoro any day between twelve and tliroo o'clock, and would bo pleased to testify to tho trustworthiness of his iatc servant. Thegentlomoninnoed of a butler did not beliovo In wrltton testimonials, and according to hid custom, whon engaging servants, wont to mako his inquiries' in person, Ar riving at tho Grand Hotol, no sent his card up to Mr. A., and was duly ushered into tho handsomo suite ofjrooras ho Oc cupied. In a few minutes Mr. A. put in an appcaranco. Ho vas amostcmlnent ly rcspcotablo-looking old gontloman, with u bald head, and flowing, silvery beard. Ho received his visitor with great urbanity, and answered all his inquiries in a very satisfactory manner. IIo ex plained Unit tho butler' had beon for many years in his sorvlco, and was a most valuablo sorvant fronl whom ho was most loath to part, but that his (Mr. A.'s) ill-health had compelled him to break up his establishment and travel about for chango of uif.' On tho strength of this recommenda tion tho butler was engaged, and for nearly threo months discharged his du ties in so satisfactory ii manner that hi3 new master never ceased to congratu late himself upon tho acquisition ol such a treasure. One day a friend, who was a Stipendiary Magistrate, camo to din ner, and, after looking very hard at tho butler, informed his host that just nine months previously ho had sentenced, tho man to six mouths' imprisonment for theft. Next day tho master called the servant up and told him what he had learned. Tho butler at onoovf admitted tho soft impeachment andacknowledged that ho had just completed his term of imprisonment whon he tooksorvico with his present employers, but added that ho had sincerely repented his misdeeds, and trusted that no causo for complaint had arisen sinco ho had been in his now Situation. "But how on earth," in quired his master, " did you manage to got such a good charactor from Mr. A., whom 1 saw at tho Grand Hotel, who said ho had known you all your life, and had found you perfect in every respect, and said ho could confidently recom mend you as a. butler?"

Philadelphia Telcyraph. DR. J0HH BULL'S T -"- Tho Gray Head by tho Hearth. A privato lottor from a lady who is spending the year among tho peasants of tho Tyrol, says: " Tho morning after our arrival wo woro wakened by tho sound of a violin and llutes under tho window, and, hurrying down, found tho littlo houso adorned as for a feast; gar lands over tho door and wreathing a high chair which was set in state. "Tho table was already covered with gifts, brought by tho young people whoso music wo had heard. Tho wholo neighborhood woro kinsfolk, and theso gifts camVfrom uncles and cousins in ovory far-off degree; thoy were simple, for tho donors woro poor: knitted cloves, a shawl, baskets of llowors, jars ot fruit, loaves of broad; but upon all some littlo message of lovo was pinned. " Is thoro a brido in the houso?' I asked of my landlord. " Ach, noinlMie said. 'Wo do not mako such a bother about our young people. It is the grandmother's birth day.' '. " Tho grandmother, in hor spectaclos, white apron and high volvot cap, was a horoino all day, sitting in stato to ro coiyo visits and dealing out slices Irom a sweet loaf to all who camo. I could not but remember certain grandmothers at homo, just asjmueh loved as she, probably, but wlfoso dull, sad lives wcro never brightened by any such gust of pleasure as this; and I thought wo could learn much from' theso poor moun tahioors." We remember ii certain American house of tho higher class, in which the venorablc mothor oft Uio owner had her own boudoir filled with everything which could recall her long checkered life pleasantly to her in, its tranquil old ago. That room was' tho center of tho great mansion; no giiost entered the house without desiring to pay his re spects to her, although only the most favored were admitted, iho eilect upon the young people who camo to the houso of tfiis marked genuine reverence for ago was incalculable for good. Tho new generation is always apt to bo in tolerant of thoso who aro leaving tho stage; ant, too, to slight their experi ence am opinions. Ir they do not find their parents honoring age, where will thoy learn to honor them?
