Bishop, in Harper's Magazine.
Peck's Bun tells the following story about
two Grand Rapids partners in the produce
briainess, named Spofford & Cole, who sent
two orders to be filled, 0120_0f 3,00 u dots. to
New York'lnother of 16 dole. to a Michigan
firm. By some unaccountable mistake Cole
sent the 16 doL draft to the New York house
with instructions to place the amount to the
credit of the firm, and the 3,000 doL draft
was sent to the Michigan firm with instruc
tions to send the worth of the enclosed draft
in apple-butter. The New. York house was
disgusted at the small remittance, and the
Michigan firm were scarednut of their boots.
It was the biggest order for apple sauce they
had overheard of, and they started men out
all over central Michigan , buying. up all the
appk3-butter they could find, and it the end
of two daiii tip shipped four car-loads, and
wrote they would ship the . balance 'some
time during the week. ' Cole was away
shooting pigeons when the first load of
apple-butter arrived. Spafford was, probs..
bly as near crazy as any mau can be who
never tried to edit a newspaper. He looked
over the eleven wagon-loads of apple-butter,
and when told that there were several car
loads more at the depot he turned pale,
leaned against a barrel of boons, and fanned
himself with a codfish. He rallied; however,
allowed the wagons to be unloaded, but told
the teamsters that was probably all the op
ple-butter they would need that day, if they
economised on it, and they need not haul
the rest till the next day., The next day
Cole got back, and was astonished at the
number of barrels in front of the store.
Spafford watched - him a few minutes, and
then called him into the office, and told him
it was as good a time as any to dissolve
portnership ; that Cole could take the apple
tuitter, and be would take the rest of the
stuff, and they would separate. Spafford
said, at his time of life he didn't want to
establish an apple-butter reservoir to supply
tiro whole of Wisconsin and ' Minnesota.

that the profits are so often sunk. A play

In 1557 the firth of William- Adalns and
Co., Bbston, •put sixteen freight efeVators
into the then just built granite xvefionse
called the State Street Block. These! eleva
tors were at first worked by hempen-I, ropes,
and the shafting that conveyed the power
extended continuoitsly through 'all the
stores of the block. Other -early inventors
and patentees of portions of elevator ma
chinery were Mr. E. G.' Otis, of. Yonkers,
New York and Mr. Cyrus AV. Baldwin, of
Brooliko, New - York. ' The experiments
and inventions of the latter gentleman hare
brought hydraulic elevatom-to a state of
great ierfection. .
Accidents were continually happening to
thei early elevators, owing to the breaking
of ropes. It was an accident to an elevator
of his own make that led Mr. Albert Bette
ley (of the firm of William Adams and Co.,
Boston) to the invention of the i air-cushion
safety-device, considered by many as the
best of such devices. The accident alluded
to happened at the store of • Emmons, Dan-,
fOrth, and Scudder, in the State Street
Block. The elevator platform, loaded with
seven boxes of sugar, had fallen from a
great height into the" cellar beneath the
hoistway, and the pulleys and gearing at the
,top had been finng clear over on to the
neighboring stores. Mr. Betteley was sum
moned to the scene. He of course expected
to find a complete:wreck in the cellar ; but
what was his surprise to find the boxes
of sugar scarcely injured ?• He set his wits
te,work, and soon reached the 'conch - aim
that, as the cellar was nearly the
rapidity of the descent of the- platform had
compressed tne 141" sv an to form an , air-oush
10Th, which had broken . the violence of the
fall. After experimenting with a model;
and satisfying himself of the truth - of his
'surmise, Mr. Betteley took out a patent for
an air-cushion. Otis Tufts uad to jocular
ly call this ".patenting a hole in the ground,"
in allusion to' the air reservoir formed be
neath the elevator. The object of the in
vention was to, gradually check the moment
um of a falling car by making the hoistway
nearly air-tight, eritavating an air reservoir
at the bcittom, and if desired, braiding the
bottom - of the eIF in a .parachtuo form.
This air-eushioh device is now universally
used in connection with dumb-waiters, and
also somewhat extensively" in . connection
with passenger, elevators.— W. B. Seined*

♦I. Movable Mountain of Pare Sand Formed
by Nevada Zephyrs.
In the eastern part of Churchill county,
near Sand Sprints Station, on the road from
Ilraametni.o w Ctswasoll WC, ittaaCh uttnme ..rlm.4,- p
Ave miles from the former 'place, is a=l
dune, which is remarkable alike for its pe
culiar formation and moving propensities.
As far around as the eye can reach is a vast
wilderness 'of greasewood and stunted sage
brush, with here and there abrupt mountain
ridges; or a slutrio, rocky' peak, evidently
placed there long before• the mythical per
sons left their mysterious footprints in the
mud, now hardened for the annoyance of
the State prison. inmates, and for no other
apparent purpose than to deceive
. the unac
customed traveler as regards their distance
from any place he happens to be located.
The dune, or Eland mountain ridge, Which is
about four miles in length, and covers prob
ably a mile of greasewood in width, was
perhaps formed by the heavy winds which
prevail in that section, blowing across these
deserts through a - natural opening in a small
range of mountains and depositing the small
particles of sand that were picked up in ''a
heap where -the wind's course is disturbed
and an eddy formed.. " •
In the whole dune, which is from 100 to
400 feet in height, and contains . millions l ot
tons of sand, it is,impossible to find a pull
cle much larger thin a pin-head. It is so
fine that if
,an ordinary barley sack be filled
and placed in a moving wagon, the jolting
of the vehicle would empty the sack, and
yet it has no form of dust in it and is as
clean as - any sea-beach sand. , The mom.
- tain is so solid as to givi it a Musical sound
when trod upon, and oftentimes a bird light
ing on it or a large lizard running across the
bottom will start a large quantity of the sand
to sliding, which makes a,noise resembling
the vibration of telegraph wires with a bard
wind blowing, but so inuch•, louder that it is
often heard at a distan ° of six .or seven
miles and is deafening' t a person stand
- ing within a short ' 7
ce of the sliding
Apecaliar feature of the dune is that it is
tot stationary, but rolls slowly eastward, the
wind gathering it up on the west end and
carrying it along the ridge until it is again
deposited at the eastern snd. Mr. Monroe,
the well-known surveyor, having heard of
the"rambling habits of thie f mammoth sand
heap, quite a number .of , years ago took
careful bearings on it while sectionizing
government lands in that vicinity. Several
years later he visited the place and formd
that the dune had moved.something over a
mile.—Reno Gazette.

Ur. Faresh Furman, formerly a member
of the Georgia State Senate,. retired from
politics five years ago and went 'to-planting.
He owned a considerable.tract of scrub hod
/a Central. Georgia, which he bad leased to . '
tenants; who bad cultivated it on the old ex
plan, and left it nearly barren and
worthliiss, valued at less than 8.5 tug acre:
It was this land that Mr. Furman took hold ",
of and resolved to cultivate on an :_ entirely
new system for the South. H er determined
not to farm muli land in tho wasteful
r i
Southern 'style of t enty, plan, ago, but to
-take only a few sic • He began his exper
iment with a field f sixty-five acres and
planted it in cotton. The first year's crop
was disheartening enough to have discour.
._aged any other man—only. eight bales, or
one to every eight acres. The land, he said, '
was very poor and needed . fertilizing.. Ana- .
lyzing the cotton ho discovered its chemical
tonstitnents; and at on ec . ,.yroceeded to man
ufacture a compost that contained just those
;übstances that the cotton plant extracted
from the soil. Using - 500 pounds of com
to the acre, ho increased his crop in
1879 to twelveVbales ; in 1880, with 1,09C.'
pounds tolhe airs, to twenty-three bake ; in'
1881, with 2000 pounds, to. - forty-sevear
bales ; while this year, with 4000 pounds, he
will produce between ninely and one bun- -
dred bales on his sixty-five-acre tracCor one
and a - half bales to the acre on what pa
known as " scrub " Georgia' land. He - has
this conclusively proved the advantage of s i
system which, he declares, will, in time,
yield three bales per acre on any land, how.
ever Poor. Mr. Furman's compost cost&
$14.20 per acre, or $942 for the whole farm
this year, and the total expanse of raising
his crop was $2,300, while -the net profits
were $2,725, or $4O an acre. l7 -At/anta Caw
