numerous than they have been for
years. Just how they came to be
so plenty is not easily explained.
They are everywhere on the bottoms,
on the ridges, in the woods, and in

season has furnished a lot of stag

The moscjito sharps says that a
mosquito never goes far from the
place it was hatched, a quarter to
a half mile, and that they hatch in
stagnant water. How they would ac
count for the presence of swarms of
them out on the divides where there
lian been 110 stagnant water for
months, has not been disclosed.
However the mosquito did not ap
pear until after the rains and they
may have had all to do with it. Any
