The task of supplying the navy with

Both branches of the Hen-Ice will soon

thus greatly slmplyfylng the problem
of Interchangable supplies of ammuni

quired to operate In conjunction. Grad

replaced by Krag-Jorgenaen rifles.
Some 5,00 rounds of ammunition was
called for by the navy department for
experimental purposes and experiments
are now being made wun , it wun a
Colt machine gum. The army ordnance
dipartment will continue to manufac

navy as they are called for, but the
ammunition will be manufactured by

ONE OF THE ANGELS.
New York Pre.
At the Albaivy station of the New
Yoark Central and Hudson River rail
road there is an old man of the name
of Booth, who la a gate keeper and
calls out the departing trains. He Is
one of the most gentle and kind men
In the world. He answers every ques
tion asked as ploanodUly and paUently
as If he were an angel, and you may
rest asured that many thousands of
fool Inquiries are fired at him. In call
ing out the trains he does not shout
In gut'teral-doiorerel-mutteral which
nobody can understand. He never
raises his voice, yet it Is far reaching,
and his enunciation and pronunciation
are so distinct that every word he
speaks Is heard. He Is particularly
good to women and children. This Is a
fair sample of his calling:
"The train for Schenectady, Fonda,
Amsterdam, Little Falls, Utlca Rome

After a mlnuta he will again call out:
