We received a letter from P.
Sullivan this week from Phoenix ,
Arizona , where he has been spend
ing the winter. He says the weather
has been mild there and plenty of
sunshine , though cool nights pre
vail. The season is as well ad
vanced there now , as Cherry coun
ty in June. Alfalfa is about ready
for first cutting and small grain is
'heading out. All sorts of garden
vegatjjbles on the market. _ He
says there are people from al
most all parts of the world there
and of all colors and shades of the
human race , from the coal black
to the pure white. Also most of
the ailments , but consumption is
most prevalent. Some recover
but a very large per cent die and
many are buried there. Mr. Sul
livan says his health has been gen
erally good with the exception of
one or two light colds. He thinks
of going to California soon and
probably to Washington. We
are indebted to Mr. Sullivan for
several copies of newspapers sent
us from Phoenix , Ariz. , which
were very interesting.
