Only a little more than one-hall are running full time, the remainder being short time. The average reduction in wages has been 9.5 per cent. Taking the five months from September 1. 1898, to January 31, 1894, It .is estimated that in all the factories of tho State the workingmen have lost 1,703,060 worklnp days of ten hours each. Calculating the average pay for a day's fork at $1 50 the money loss to the Michigan worklngmen in five months was $2,644,590, oral a rate of over 110,000,000 a year. A pretty good price to pay for Democratic tariff reform. ivith one o£ tho tfuiiUw, :iml saw thing's wonderful even to tin old timer.

There is a paper maker who has a contract with the secretary of the treasury, and he pays for tho waste paper so that tlie government does not lose it entirely. All of the thick, heavy brown paper and pasteboard which comes wrapped around express packages from all parts of the country is separated from the finer qualities, and they sa.y t.hat this material makes tho finest kind of pasteboard for boxes. The women who handle this waste paper are experts and can tell at u glance or a touch the quality of the paper and what to do with each little piece. In tho southwest corner of the basement is a cabinet shop which is valuable to the government. They do, not »mlte presidential cabinets down here under the ground »ml mvny fronj the noise and bustle of I'cnnsyh-anin avenue, but they mako all sorts of furniture. This cabinet shop.is probably the best equipped one in Washington, and probably less than u hundred people in this city know of its existence. Here uvo nil of the choicest and latest bits of machinery for woodwork, and there uro lathes, belting, mortices, in fact all that a first-class workman could desire or expect to have in a well ordered shop. The vurnisher was at work on n. very handsome desk in tho varnishing room which adjoins tho cabinet shop. Me Raid: "See that little round plujj near tho corner of the desk.

If it were not so, sickness would be tho rule rather than the exception among the clerks. We passed tho plumber's shop, but went back to it. Here i.s where tho government saves many thousands of dollars. Down under tho ground Is the ulioj? which prevents the plumbers of Washing-ton from plundering the public purse as they do so many private, purses. Here are the uen with their clamps, hammers, vises, monkey j wrenches, sealing wax and other ap- i purtcnances. They attend to tho miles . upon miles of gas pipe, water piping '• and sewerage. One workman is always in the shop repairing fixtures or making new one's, but tho others are always out, looking after some, portion of the building which requires attcn- , tiou. If it were not for this shop the i g-ovcrnment would be at an average j expense of about a hundred dollars a i for plumbing, according to th- Martyr FnwNlvnt ll'rot* Kumovn Aridn'iiB. There is no decisive record of when Mr. Lincoln wrote the first sentences of his proposed address. He probably followed his usual habit in such matters, using great deliberation iu arranging his thoughts, anil moulding his phrases mentally, waiting to reduce them to writing until they bad taken satisfactory form. There was much greater necessity for such precaution in this case, because the invitation specified that the add rests of dedication should only be "a few appropriate remarks." Urevity in speech and writing won one of luin- colii'.-i Kiarketl characteristics; but in this instance there existed two other motives calculated to strongly support nis natural inclination. One was that .Mr. Everett would bo quite certain to malco a long- address; the other, the want of opportunity oven to think leisurely about what he might desire to say. All this strongly conlirms the correctness of the statement made by tho Hon. James Speed, in an interview printed in the "Louisville Commercial" in N'ovember, 1879, that the president told him that "the day before he left. Washington he found time to write about half of his speech.' 1 * * * It was after the breakfast hour on the morning of thc liith that the writer, Mr. 1'jincolu's private secretary, went to the upper room in the house of Mr. Wills |al Gettysburg] which Mr. Lincoln occupied, to report for duty, and remained with the president while he tinishcil writing the Gettysburg address, during the short leisure he could utilize for this purpose before being called to take his place in tho procession, which was announced on the programme to move promptly at 10 o'clock. There is neither record, evidence, nor well-founded tradition that Mr. Lincoln did any writing, or made any notes, on the journey between Washington and Gettysburg. The train consisted of four passenger coaches, and either composition or writing would have been extremely troublesome amid all the movement, the noise, the conversation, the greetings, and the questionings which Ordinary courtesy required him to undergo in theso surroiindinjj-sj but still worse would have been the rockings and jolt- ings of the train, rendering 1 writing- virtually impossible. Mr, Lincoln car- j ried in his pocket the autograph manuscript of so much of his address as he . had written at Washington the day before. It fills one puge of tho letter paper at that time habitually used in the executive mansion, containing tho plainly printed blank beading; both paper and print (riving convincing testimony to the simple and economical business methods then prevailing- In the White House. This portion of the manuscript begins with the line, "Four score and seven years igo," and ends "Jt is rather for us the living," ete. The whole of this first page—nineteen lines | —is written in ink in thc president's strong, clear hand, without blot or erasure; and the last line is in the following form: "It i« rather for us the living to stand here," the last three words being, like the rest, in ink. From the fact that this sentence is in- compiete, we may infer that at the time of writing it in Washington the remainder of the sentonoe wa* ftlso p jc Point ud CUOMO.—18.16 • m " tutd Colombo* t aOD * m ud Wn«r -t 8,3)» m Utnd LoolitUIe...*!!» p m •ndUau 17.20»m id cinatnnMI..>.*U.86pjn Colombo* ..»a»p» *nd Now Totk..* 1» P m • l.» p m ICMoMO • 1.80pm • Z.I&P BO Point and CuTaiio .* 110 p m *11.10 p m 9 »nd BWunond. i 2.10pm tn.00«it ind Bnwrort ' ' •nd Ftttmninl _.Jil».»DdMel»fL Ponn mil chkMfo nuo and Kffncr..«« J.

This desk has been down here for some time, but the cabinet shop was rushed with repairing work on smaller desks for clerks who needed them at once, so we have taken time with this one. It would cost the government about one hundred and fifty dollars for such a tlesk as this; and we have saved it down here by repairing the damage. No oue could ever nee that the desk has been defaced. That plug 'looks like a knot in the wood, and that is due'largely to the art of tho painters in, tho adjoining shop." Lo and behold, there is a paint shop—and a fine one, too—adjoining thc varnish room.
