Little Rock, Ark., Deo. 26th, 1889. To The Rkgistbr: - It may seem incredible to people in my native city- " The Athens of America" - in Michigan, that here ia the " City of Roses " the dust has been about as plent.ful during the past three weeks, as in the midst of summer, and the days have been almost as warm and balmy as the average summer days west of the Cascades in Oregon and Washington. The grass and plants are still green. Overcoat8 during the present month have been a luxury. Windows are open and doors are daily left ajir. The thermometer has ranged between 60 and 70 degrees during the day. The sky for the most part free from clouds, and winds a gentle zephyr. The climate here compares very favorably with that on the Pacific coast, ijut the nights are not so cool in summer.
