Ls-t yenr tho num ber run up into the tliouninls. A loot child Is cer tain to attract atten tion imiiK'dintcly.

Tbenco it is sent lo Head ipinrlcrs. A general alnnn Is sent out to every precinct in the city, notifying tlm lergennts that n child list bonii found, snd giving ndeseription of thn child nnd its nnme, if the child cun talk and re member it. At Hcnilipinrtcrs Borgennt Hurley, whoso room is oa the Mulberry street rnd of tho big white building, tskes ehnrgn of tho child and enters its immn on the great blotter, whole thoussti'ls a f other lost children's names already itn ml. Hut the littlo hoy or girl nocds ciro which only a woman can give, so up itairs it goes to what is known ns the "Sky Parlor." This is Matron Travis's own domain. Mrs. Travis has boon mother to more children In tho timo sho has been nt lleailipinrlers thnn has any iitber woman in the city.

Tlio children nrs kept boro for two Jays. If not called for In that timo they nro turned over to tho Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children or to come similar institution. Last year no fewer than 3137 children -cre found by tho pnlico, lost in this city. Of tlieso 5 01) (J wcro restored to their parent or guardians; tho romsin der was sent to institutions. Of tho40 lost children 'M'Jl bclongod in New York, and sixty-two wero the children of people from nut of town who hnd come into tho city for a day's b-uiucj or pleasure. Summer is the timo whon chlldien play in tho streets moro than they do at any other scafon of the year. Consequently moro of them succeeded in getting them selves lost in the months of July, August and September than at any other period. Chil Iron of tho poorer class of people sake up the largest number of the lost fOUMD. onos, although once in a while a Little Lord Fauntleroy, with shining balr and elegant clothing, wanders away from his uxm while she Is receiving the attentions I 111 e. rail Jt of somo edmlror and Is picked up by the police, Mi.it of the lost children are found nn the east side of the city, where people of ninny nationalities are crowded together. Thn reason for this lios, per haps, In (ha fnct that each gnthornoV nationality lorms a community by Itself, and the children, being kept within the community of which their parents nr members, do not become familiar with the surrounding streets. Consequently when they stray a fow blocks away they aro ns hopelessly lost as though they wers sot down In tlio middle of a strnngn city. Then, too, In tlieso busy, crowded neighborhoods ninny do not know their next door neighbors by sight, to say nothing of their nelt door neighbor's children. For this reason many a child hns been picked up by a policeman, lost nnd crylnif, within a fow streots of whom its parents' live. Oaes hnvo occurred, linlood, where children, unnbln to tell their names, have boon lost on tho aml block on which their pnronts lived. Some people move nliout so much that their young children hnvo no timo to Imcomn acquainted with a neighborhood, and whon, evading thn mother's eyo, they slip out into tlio street, they cannot find the its noon nAxiis. house out of which they come but a few minutes before, cry because tlioy are lost nnd nro taken in charge by a police offi cer. Many a motlior, rushing frantically to tho police station, finds there hor child whom slio had missed but flftnon min utes beforo, and who had not boon out of tho homo more thnn half an hour. The people over on tho Knst Hido aro sharp, and arenlwnys ready to take ad vantage of anr schoino which will prove rot.icit nuAnrjnAnTRns. of benefit to themselves. Lately some of them wnrkod up an idea which does credit to thoir shrewdness, howevor it may reflect upon their honesty and their regard for the comfort of thoir offsprings They learned that if their children wero found on the street lost, they could bo quickly picked un by tho watchful guardinus of the peace and taken to the station. The good nature I otBcers wound not allow the children to sulfur from hunger In their care, but would buy crackers and rako and often candy to keep tho children quiet. Then, too, the children are kept in tho ward room where tho policemen rot'; and are kept amused by the ollicers. Taey know, also, that the children are not taken to headquarters until 8 o'clock in the eve ning. Bo they hit upon the seems or bavinw the children cared for In this way. Not to riik the danger of turning the children adrilt on the street whenever the parents wished to make a day a excursion them selves they would send the children arouud to the station house in the charge of some friend or relative. The children were represented as lost and left in cbargo of the bluecoats and entered oo the blotter as lost. The scheme worked for a long while, and Captain Cross's station house, on Eldridgu street, was crowded daily with lost (t) children. On Decoiatioa Day, whon tho scheme was at the height of its success, eighty-seven children were en tered on the blotter as lost. Sergeant Judd noticed that a number of children were brought by the samo people twice. Thon bo adopted the rule that the person who brought a child to the station house must care lor it for the day. The plan bad tho desired effect and somewhat broke up tbo practice. Tiio L:tra'et Saillnj Ship. The largest sailing ship in the world, the Roanoke, has reached New York from Path, Me.
