The former or front compartment 13 has its top wall formed with a plurality or row of openings 17 of a size to snugly fit about the upper end of an umbrella when closed. A drain pan 18 in the nature of a drawer is slidable through an opening 19 in the front wall 20 of the body and is designed to respectively underlie both the front and rear compartments when in its closed normal position. partment 13 is provided with a relatively narrow longitudinal strip 21 upon which the ed to rest, the drain water 18. 'The end walls 23 thereof, and said slots ceive rubbers which The front comlower ends of the umbrella sticks are adaptthGI'Q'fIOIII being adapted to gravitate into the drain pan or drawer 18. f

The rear compartment 14 is provided with shelves 22 extendinginwardly from its outer end walls 23 to a central partition 24. The

partition 24 extends downwardlyfrom the top wall 15 and terminates above theupper edge Ofthe drain pan or drawer 18.

The upper wall 15 of the rear compartment is provided with slots 28 medially are designed to reare inserted. through the slots with the heels engaging; over the upper Wall 15 so thatdrain water therefrom willgravitate into the drain pan or drawer 18. 'By disposing the wall 15 of the rear compartment 14 below the upper wall 16 of the front compartment, it is obvious that the rubbers arranged in the slots 28 will be concealed from view of the :casual observer.

'From the foregoing it will thus be seen that an attractive,lsimple and efficient rack has been devised for containing and supporting umbrellas, rubbers, overshoes, and the like, so that the drain water therefrom will be led into a suitable receptacle therefor and prevented from draining'on :tofloors or other coverings to their detriment.
