It is reported that the great American
carpet companies are about to begin the
manufacture of Axinister carpets on an
extensive scale, and that the services of
some of the best English designers have
The Democratic majority in Congress is
so much at sea on the currency question
that it is likely to devote a good share of
its time to tariff tinkering, if the number
of bills already introduced are an index of
Democratic sentiment on the subject.
There are thirty-two of them, and nearly
every one of them contemplates some re
ductiou in tariff rates.
There is a new marble working ma
chine at Rutland, Vt, which chips the
stone at the rateoffo,ooosrokesa minute.
By setting the weels at different angles
to the line of the spindle, according to the
work required to be done, the machine
will channel, turn and flute a column,
countersink, mould, panel, letter and do
filagree work. Each spindle has about
38 chisels or teete, and revolves from 1,-
500 to 3,000 times a minute.
Greenbacks of the smaller denominati
ons are in great demand, and the legal
tender balance in the United States Treas
ury has decreased from $59,000,000 on
Sept. 30 to $23,000,000 on December 24.
Even the standard dollars have begun to
find a place in the circulating currency,
and during the last three months some
4,000,000 of them have gone into the
hands of the people. The demand fell 2,-
000,000 short of the coinage for the same
period, but there is some satisfaction in
knowing that only two millions of dol
lars have been added to the accumulated
stock of standard dollars during the last
quarter. The business "boom" is solving
some of the most difficult financial prob
lems, without the aid of legislation.
Secretary Sherman dresses plainly and
always in dark colors, and looks more
like a college professor than a politician.
In his walks he invariably carries a light
cane, which he swings carelessly. The
Philadelphia Press describes him as mak
ing the business of his office go like clock
work. As fast as he reads his letters he
dictates to his private secretary, and tin
callers who interrupt him are quickly dis
posed of. In perception he is quick, and
in decision prompt. lie despatches busi
ness with great rapidity, and never re
views his work. If you ask him a ques
tion about department business he will
answer instantly or direct you to a man
who is fully informed. His method is so
thorough that he feels every pulse beat in
the great department of which he is the
