Of the abundance of mosquitoes in all part* of the world, travelers ant! explorers have given ample testimony.

In the United States mos- quitoes are found almost everywhere, from Alaska to Texas, from Maine to California. A curious and as yet unexplained point, in regard to mosquito existence, is the extraordinary abundance of the inicc't at certain times upon dry prai- ries." miles away from water.

of V. T. After two weeks of intense suffering with dysentery and an absecKK of the bowels, Tuesday evening1 at 8 o'clock V. T. Pieper quietly breathed his last. He had lived 54 years. Mr. Pieper was a native oí Germany, but had been in this country many years. He came to Caldwell in June. 1900, from Oakwoods, Texas, and had made scores of warm friends by his kindly words and cordial treat- ment of all. Being all alone here, and with- out a relative in all America, he received the most careful nurs- ing and constant care from the friends he had made, but all to 00 avail, for it was evident from the first that it was a hard bat- tle for him, though he fought bravely. His remains were removed to the residence of J. H. Alexan- der, where the funeral was con- ducted by the Masonic frater- nity, of which he was a member, Wednesday at 2 o'clock p. m. He was laid to rest in the Ma- Honic cemetery with the usual rites of the Masonic order. Mr. Pieper was also a mem- ber of the Woodmen of the...

It was a sort of advance notice that Teddy's idea of the vice preai- dency would not square with the fifth-wheel notion which has pre- vailed heretofore and of innova- •ions to come which promise good "copy" for the correspon- dents, if not calmness and peace for the senate. A New York lawyer, a Mr. Holls, appeared at the capitol this week and began to industriously buttonhole re- publican senators. The senators, probably because of their shame and disgust, would not at first tell what the man's object was, but it soon leaked out that he was a personal representative of Theodore Roosevelt, vice presi- dent to be, and that in the name of Teddy he was asking sena- tors to defeat the ratification of the amended Hay-Pauncefote treaty.
