MOSQUITO TIME IN FLORIDA. | A Period When All Social Lite ana Outdoor Enjoyment Is ot \k a Standstill. I shall never forget the feeling I had when one of my neighbors said, at the beginning of the season: "Oh, well, there are not many days when you can? not drive into town in the middle of the day for the mail." I did not understand her, or scarcely believe her, but I do now. I also know of several other fam? ilies who have regularly prepared for the mosquito season by laying in a stock of sewing and reading, and who announced, when the season began, that they did not intend to go out or to receive until it was over; so that prac? tically nil social life is at a standstill, invitationsusually ending with, "weath? er and mosquitoes permitting." The moonlight nights in this little corner of the earth are glorious, but we have only been able to enjoy them from our front piazza steps once in nearly two anonths, and then only for a brief half hour, while a strong sea breeze swept in over...

WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.?Senator Teller occupied the first half of today's session of the Senate with a speech in advocacy of the theory that there are no restrictions upon the right of the Uni'ted States to expand its borders so as to include far distant territory. Mr. Teller's address, like that of Mr. Platt, was a constitutional argument, in the course of which he maintained the right of the United States to acquire foreign territory, without entering upon a dis? cussion of the policy of expansion, ex? cept, of course, in an incidental and de? ferential way. In view of Mr. Platt's very able ex? position of the question. Mr. Teller though he might omit properly much that he had in'tended to discuss. He did not thi...

Moss' Hall, which as been the scone of so many gayeties in the past, has probably never witnessed a prettier or more picturesque scene than that pre? sented last night at the Masquerade Hall. The occasion was a notable and enjoyable one. There wore something like half a hundred couples present and most of them were in costume. These costumes wore, many of them, striking and well conceived. Almost every character was represented, from the Empress Josephine to the Princess Po cahontas, and from the race track sport to Uncle Sam. There were sol? diers of different per;ods, brave in uni? form and lace; there were maids at? tired in colonial garb, and others in raiment of days more matter-of-fact, but less poetic. But if the customs were unique, the ?wearers were even more interesting, for the femini...
