NO WASTE WHiLE iNACM SUFFERED FOR HIS COUNTRY SHas Deane^Fint American Diplomatic Agent, Received Harsh Treatment From Government. Silas Deane, the first diplomatic agout of the United States, was bom at Grot on, Mass., close to 200 years ago v Ho became a merchant and *'ns a delegate to the first Ooiitinental congress. In the spring of; 1776 he was sent to France us a secret diplomatic agent. He posed ns n merchant from Bermuda, and upon his arrival In Paris songht an interview with Count de Vergennes, the Minister of Foreign Affaires, -who refused to receive him. Deune wns reduced to the direst poverty nnd was ejected by his landlady. Subsequent American ambassadors have complained of tlio lack oC suitable embassies, but Deane was reduced to a point where he had tn accept poor lodgings from n sympathetic Frenchman. Eventually he was given an audience "with Vergennes and began the diplomatic relations which eventually resulted in the French alliance. In 1777 Beane wns recalled. In the bitter controversy which followed his recall Thomns Puino revealed the fact that supplies fnrnlshed the colonies bad been /nrnished by the French government. This wos considered a diplomatic indiscretion and it cost Paine his place as secretary of the Committee .on Foreign, Affairs. Deane, driven into poverty and exile, died In England in 17SH. .Half a century later his claim for hfs services ubroad was adjusted by congress and a large sum was paid his heirs, * Orrgtn of Blizzard. * BUxzord is undoubtedly a word oC American origin, but it is much older than suggested. In Amersham (Eng,) churchyard today there Is a tomb of the BUzard family, and people of that name still reside In the village of Chalfont St. Giles. A mnn pf this name accompanied William Penu to the new world. This BUzard, it is said, developed very unsociable habits and settled far away from bis fellows In the remote Northwest. Now ft northwestern snowstorm Is the most disagreeable thing there is aboat the whole climate, and Mr, BKzard, bein$ so unpleasant a person to ills neighbors, bis nnme was adopted to describe the objectionable type of weather which blew from bis direction. For Ions trnnfc lines, the steam lo' comottve has .proved itself to be the most economical type of tractor. For : RAILWAYS ASK LESS TRAVEL short lines, and for factory yards or I .. railroad terminals, however, steam pro- : pnlsion Is about the most expensive.

Benjamin Franklin's Pennsylvania Gazette was the first American newspaper to print a cartoon. There were rumors of a possible war with the French, which resulted in a call for a meeting at Albany of the representatives of the British colonies. Franklin was one of the commissioners, and to increase the force of an appeal for united action, on May 0, 1754, printed n cartoon representing a snake cut Into eight parts, the head representing *ew Engtand and the other seven parts the various colonies outside of New E!ng- ..nd.
