    Daily Democrat.
When the democrats came back, after
wandering twenty-four years in the wilder
ness, they exhibited an appetite for office
' that was not altogether unnatural under the
circumstances. But it was nothing to the
hunger and thirst that less than four years
of abstinence have developed among the
One of the striking features of the pres
ent political situation is the unanimity with
which the idea of civil service reform has
been abandoned. It seems to be agresd
that all such new-fangled notions have been
voted out.and there is not the least pretense
in any quarter that the spoils do not belong
entirely to the victors.
It may be interesting.about next March,
to recall some of the observations made
four years before on the subject of remov
als from office, to say nothing of the utter
ances of party platforms meanwhile. But
this interest will be rather historical than
practical. It is now conceded that the of
fices belong to the saints and it must be ac
knowledged that the saints are not back
ward in coming forward to claim them.
History relates that the elder Harrison
succumbed to the office seekers in a month,
finding his only escape in death. If the
grandson proves better able to stand the
pressure it will be because he is not with
out experience in the distribution of patron
age. And yet the pressure of 1840-41 was
not a circumstance to that which already
confronts the President-elect.
Alexander Dumas is one of the few mod- J
rn authors nossesslne enough of this
world's goods to live handsomely. He has
a charming chalet near Dieppe, which Is
mantled by Ivy and filled with pretty furn
iture and valuable pictures. Then he has
a splendid house in Paris, which contains
marvelous treasures of art. Dumas is now
a strong and vigorous man, who bears his
sixty four years well, and with his keen
eyes twinkling with wit and malice, his
short brush-light mustache, robust appear
ance and erect stature, he gives one an im
pression that he is either a General on half
pay or a retired planter.
The type writer, which is so universally
used to-day, is the outcome os 150 years of
thought and experiment. The patent for
a writing machine was granted to one
Henry in 1714. It was not until a few
years ago that the type-writer became
practicable. Now, is said, there are about
50,000 in use in the United States.

Peter A. Dey, a democrat,by whose elec
tion as Railroad Commissioner, the listof
republican state officers of Iowa, unbroken
since 1857, was .shattered, owed his election
to the jobbers of the state and the Farmers'
Alliance. He has been Railroad Commis
sioner since 187S by successive appoint
ments. The railroads opposed him this
year. He is considered the most compe
tent judge of railway matters in the state.
He was employed by the Union Pacific
Company as an expert to make estimates
of the cost of building that line. His figures
were too low to enable the managers to
bleed the Government to the extent they
desired, and he was asked to raise them.
He. refused and was discharged. He is
about fifty years old and lives at Iowa City.

An old man named John Kaufman, who
died in Brazil, Ind., the other day, had a
most peculiar monomania. His desire to
steal women's shoes was uncontrollable,
though he was never accused of stealing
anything else. A few years ago he was
arrested, and forty or fifty pairs of women's
shoes and slippers recovered. He had
buried them on the commons. He was
sent to the penitentiary for a short time for
this offense. His wife got a divorce during
his term in prison, and he has ever since
lived alone. The day he died over sixty
pairs of women's shoes and flippers were
found In his hut. He was a veteran of the
Mexican and ciyil wars.
An English correspondent gives as a
reason for possibility that the English lan
guage will become the "world speech" the
mental slowness of the Anglo-Saxon race
In learning two languages. They traverse
the globe unaffected or undismayed by its
eccentricities of speech. The English
speaking countries have an area of more
than one fifth of the whole habitable globe
English Is the language ot the high seas,
and is spoken in every maritime port. What
demand can there be for Volapuk ?
The Labor Signal,vhst& at the horn
of Mr. Harrison, says : "The Signal Is
fully vindicated in its cause by the fact
that Harrison, In his own county, where he
is best known, runs over 600 behind Blain
four years ago, and In his own precinct is
four votes behind the state ticket. This
Is sufficient to prove that had the people of
the United States known him as well as did
the Signal, and his other neighbors, no
boodle or Ignorance on the tariff could
have elected him."
