Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. BLAINE'S BOOMERANG. Tne following editorial from t'e Mac n, Ga., News, is a gem in a wy, and is wtll worthy of a reading James G. Blaine, ex-secretarv of state, a man whose whole life is tinged with romance and whose bright, boM, : .. .... i i : ' f ithful persou-d friends, although they be hostile to the creed he impersonates, has passed forever as a potentiality in American politics. A man without fear and without re proach, a man Eeeu always ouder where the light is thickest, a gallant aud chivalric man whose name 13 the synonym of honor. For twelve years James G.

Blaine has been as a tutelary divinity, a mau whose remarkable mental re sources and splendid magnetic quali lie's have for ears given the succeed ing republican administrations the prestige and power they have enjoyed aud whose mme represents to them the purest, highest ideal of the prin ciples they cherish.

His has been a stormy ami sad existence. No man has bteu more maligned or mis represented. But no mau has to-day warmer or more sincere friends. BUine reiliz-s too fully that a period has been put to his political life aud also that sadder fact remains with him that the pitcher will soon be brokrn at the tounta n and that he will soon become a memory. His failure to attain the chief civic dignity of the commonwealth is sim itar fn tlio fata if flip tvraat triilm- virte, CUy, Calhoun and Webster, who merited that distinction, aspired to it. but failed in the accomplishment of their darling ambition. The conclusion forces itself upon the intelligence of the country that the nomination to the presidency is but a fortui'ous event and that states manship is but a side issue in the con test. Blaine and his friends must feel keenly and bitterly tha lligrant in gratitude of the paity to whom he has always been a "very present help in trouble," anil it is human nature to expect that he and his adherents will connive at any movement that prom ises embarrassment to the success of the republicans. His dafeat has been accepted with bad grace by the powerful division who obey his mandates and it is but reasonab'e to suppose that they will exhaust the resources of their politi cal ingenuity in contriving means to retaliate. The democrats have a bemtiful op portunity now of mastering the situa tion aud scoring a complete victory, but they must religiously repress, every appearance of factional wrangling and unite on ti e most available man. Whitelaw Reid bus ever been an uncompromising foe to organized labor and his name on the ticket will not strengthen it with the masses. In view of these uncontested facts it is self-evident that Blaine, if he survives the year, will see the party that repaid him with gross ingrati tude punished for its corrup ion aud ptrSdybyihj election of the demo cratic candidates.- He himself hes drawn the drapery around his policicnl future- and will no more reappear upon the scene as an active, potential, factor in shap ing legidati u but he rea ls in his own discomfiture the fate of the party of which he was the most brilliant apos tl, but which so perfidiously repudi ated him. "Not since Boabdil turned upon the mountain side and, sighing, took his last glance at the beautiful city of Granada and the sparkling fountains of the Alhambra palace, has the world witnessed a passing alike so pathetic, so touching and so bitter in its memories.
