The n "rt seem much | moro pleased at tlio work they have to do than when the guns Ho Idle and In a condl. tlon unfit for active use. At Sandy Hook , however , there la a slight complaint among the men , who say that too much work Is expected of too small a force. A largo consignment of ammunition , In cluding powder and projectiles , Is ready for shipment at the ordnance department In the I'rooklyn navy yard. Commander Swift , who has charge of the department , superintended the work of packing. Commander Swift re ceived Instructloro from Washington to for ward the the supplies as soon as possible to Key West , Fla. , whence they will bo dis tributed among the United States war ves sels now In thnt neighborhood. Many of the projectiles wire for guns of large caliber. As yet no information has bten received as to what disposition is to bo made of the guns which have been recently shipped to the yard from Washington. These guns are of different sizes , and as neither the Chicago nor the Atlanta , which are being overhauled at the yard , would bo tcady to receive their guns for at least six months , It Is rumored that they are Intended for the auxiliary ves sels.

The Massachu setts Benefit Life association failed some tlmo ago with unpaid death ulalnrs amounting to over ? 1,000,000 , the failure being precipi tated by the use of policy holders to correspond spend with the assessments provided for In their policies to meet the death claims of the association- which had accumulated.
