Freak of Nature.
An the eastem:part,of Churchill Conn
on Itlie road froni Wadmiorth to
Grantodle, anii about skity ! five miles
from thejorraer placele Reno Gazette
tells - us; is a sand dun which is re
markable alike for. its peculiar forma
tion and moving propensities. As far
around as the eye- "can :.reach -is a vast
wilderness of greasewood and stunted
sagebrush, with here and there abrupt
mountain rid ges, or a m
peak. . The dune, or sand mountain
ridge. which is about , four miles in
length; and covers probably a mile of
grmsewood in . width, ierhaps, formed
by the heavy winds which prevail in
that section. bloaring across these des
erts through a natural opening in a
small range of mountains, and deposit
ing the small p:lrticles of sand that
were picked up in a heap where the
ivind's course is disturbed and , an eddy .
formed: ' - , ' •

100 to 400 feet in .height, and contains

as any sea teach sand. Ehe mountain

quantity of the sand to sliding, which

Miles, and is deafening to' a person
- standing within a short distance of the

A - pecullar feature of the dune is that
it is not stationary', ' but rolls slowly
eastward, the win d . gathering= it upon
the west end. and carrying it along the
ridge until it is again deposited at the
eastern end. Mr. Monroe, the well
known surveyor, having heard of the
rambling habits of this mammoth sand
heap, quite a number of years ago took
caretul bearings on it while sectionizing
government lands ' in that vicinity.
Several years later he visited the, place,

newest fashionable diversion for young
women of wealth and leisure? Dress

make toys of littlegirls—sisters, nieces,

has suddenly become a rage' in certain
circles. I know an only daughterylia,
having no little girl relative, uses the 3-
year , old offspring of one of her papa's
poor tenants, a pretty- littlo chit, on

noons a week she is arrayed in some !

it is fashionable to do, art needle!work.,
