tut Little Left
CllI(.'A(iO, Jan. 10. A special from
Washington b;i.: Uncle Sam is
short of powder for his hitrh power
guns. After his war shins have fired
away with tho powder they have on
board, which they would do in tho
course- of a ten hours' battle, there
wou d bo left in the entire country
barely enough to supply them for a
thirty-minute combat. And it would
tako the powder mills of the United
States, with their present facilities,
nearly a year to p oduce enough pow
der to supply the ships for another ten
hours' battle. Such is the substance
of a report made to Socretary Long
by tho board of ordinanco and fortifi
citions, wh'cb. " recommended tho
immediate uildi i ' of a government
powder factory . ly wh ' h tho cost of
supplying this pu..rc uld bo greatly
reduced. Ordinary powder, it must
bo understood, will not do for high
power guns. There is plenty of this
and plenty of fine blasting powder in
the country, but very littlo riflo can
non powder. This last is made by
only two factories in tho United
States, one in Delewaro and one in
California, both of them of very lim
ited capacity'. Ilenco tho importance
of having in store enough to meet all
possiblo demands of war until more
could bo offered.
Has a Trottiujj Moose.
A domesticated trotting moose was
received at the transfer last evening
vnd taken out of the car for feeding
and exorcise, says the Oranha Bee.
The animal came from Montana,
where it was captured about four
months ago. The beast was young
and quickly domesticated, ltj owner
poon accustomed it to drivo in harness
and was astonished to discover that it
had extraordinary speed qualities and
was able to make a record of 2:15 on
the regular track. The animal is in
care of Mr. Woods, and he is under
contract to deliver it to Detroit, where
it will be entered in the spiing races.
fhe moose is a handsome and gigantic
fellow, as proud and highstrung as
the best thoroughbred race horse, and
is extremely docile. His trainer says
he enters into the spirit of a race with
all of the zest and fire of the veteran
track horse. Ho is a square trotter
and never makes a break from the
start to tho finish, ile will be at the
transfer during the gretter part of
the day today, and will no doubt re
ceive many visitors.
Captures a IWnin.
Henry Guthm n ought to join Bar-

morning he had a trap set down on
the river front for rabbits and when
he went down hoping to see a cottoc
