GETS A PENSION
$25 a Month For Life For
MET HIM ON WEDDING TR.P.
Wiped Out In Coney Island Fire, Old
Souvenir Seller Wrote to Carnegie.
Her Husband Was Railroader When
"Andy" Worked on Lino.
"Mother" Kennedy has been pen
sioned by Andrew Carnegie. Mother
Kennedy Is Mrs. M. E. Kennedy, who
for almost a quarter of a century lias
supplied children with pails nnd shov
els and sold souvenirs to their elders
at Coney Island.
It was really a wedding trip taken a
half century ago that brought about
tho pension nnd saved her from being
entirely wiped out by tho recent lire.
Mother Kennedy was born Margaret
Major of Lewlstown, Ta. That was
seventy-two years ago. When sho was
twenty sho met and married John Wc
dcnsall, a conductor on the Pennsylva
nia railroad. Wedensall was the con
ductor of tho lirst train that went
from Altoona to Pittsburg. He was u
great friend of Andrew Carnegie, then
an employee of tho lino working his
wny up to superintendent of the Pitts
burg division of the Pennsylvania rail
road. On her woddlug trip Mrs. We
densall met Mr. Curnegle.
When tho fire at Coney Island left
Mother Kennedy with only $4.80 In
tho world she recalled her first hus
band's friendship with Mr. Carneple
and recalled the almost forgotten In
cident of meeting Mr. Carnegie when
he was a railroad man and she a bride.
So sho sat down and wrote to Mr.
Tho day tho letter was sent n news
paper told her that Mr. Carnegie hail
sailed for Scotland. Tho other day
she received n letter from John Roy,
Mr. Carnegie's Scotch representative.
It told her thnt Mr. Carnegie, then in
Sklbo enstle, had received her letter
nnd read it with interest. After ivu cl
ing It Mr. Carnegie had Instructed tho
writer to Inform Mrs. Kennedy that
hereafter she would receive a pension
of $'J3 each month. The first month's
pension was Inclosed.
"It was a long time ago," said Moth
er Kennedy when asked about her
meeting with Mr. Carnegie. "I do not
remember exnetly how Mr. Carnegie
looked. I remember, however, thnt ho
wns a clean cut young person with a
forceful manner. My husband and I
were on our wedding trip when, at La
trobe. Pa.. Mr. Carnegie got on the
" 'Hello, Andy,' said my husband.
" 'How aro you. John?' said Mr. Car
negie. "Then I wns introduced to Mr. Car
negie, no -was employed on the road
at that time, and he traveled some dis
tance with us."

When Lobsters Were Common.
Tho lobster was not always tho aris
tocrat of tho supper tablo and the
most costly of delicacies. A man who
used to llvo in Malno, but now lives in
Ohio, has this reminiscence, according
to a writer In tho Cleveland Leader:
"Ono day here in Cleveland I took a
friend out to luncheon, and suddenly
tho old appetite for lobster camo back
to both of us, as wo wero both born
on tho Maine coast Wo had two full
portions, nnd tho bill was $2. And yet
as n boy Tvo seen my father standing
on tho wharf, bargaining with a fish
erman for his lobster catch of tho day,
and often, for $2 rvo seen tho lobster
fisherman turn over to my father the
entire catch, and tho whole boatload
230 or 800 big, black lobsters, perhaps
would bo dumped on tho landing and
taken back on our old farm as feed
for tho pigs.

brought to a senso of his disregard for
others by three young women who sat

second sold loud enough to bo heard
above tho car clatter and of the
amusement of others, "1 think be

only showing his bad manners." The

Monster Now Building at the
Fore River Yards,
AN INTERNATIONAL PUZZLE
Supposed to Be For Argentine Repub
lic Will Be Larger Than Any
Dreadnought Now In Course of Con
struction and Is to Be Powerfully
An international mystery surrounds
tho construction of tho dreadful Itlva-1
davla, which Is fast nearlng comple
tion at tho Foro Blvcr shipyards at
Quiucy, Mass. This and her sister
ship, which is being built nt Camden,
N. J., when fully equipped will be tho
world's two greatest battleships
There is much speculation as to
which nation will eventually own this
powerful ship of war. She is being
built for the Argentine Republic, but
her sale by that country is considered
alnit -it certain.
Work is being rushed on the mon
ster ship both day and night in order
that everything may bo in readiness
for the launching at noon Aug. 20.
The progress made in building these
two battleships is being watched close
ly by n largo corps of authorized rep
resentatives of the Argentmo llepub
Hc who have been In this country
since the work of construction began.
These men aro distributed through
out tho country at every plant whero
the material for the6o ships is being
supplied, and practically every piece
of material Is thoroughly examined by
them before being placed in position.
They malntnin the utmost secrecy and
have nothing to say to any ono except
those with whom they are brought In
contact in their work, which adds even
greater mystery to the construction of
theso giant Dreadnoughts.
Externally tho Blvadavia closely re
sembles the British Lion, building at
Dovonport, or tho Arkansas and Wy
oming, now building for tho United
States navy. In height sho agrees
with several of tho latest English nnd
The normal displacement of this
monster ship under ordinary condi
tions is 20,500 tons, although tho trial
displacement with nil weights com
plete nnd 1,000 tons of coal will bo
Its Un equaled Displacement.
Tho displacement of tho Klvadavia
exceeds that of even tho largest of the
English and American dreadnoughts
"now building. The Arkansas and Wy
oming of the United States navy will
bo 20,000 and 20,400 respectively, while
the Hercules and Colossus of tho Brit
ish navy are 24,000 and 25,000. Tho
Lion of the English navy will be 20,
Tho dimensions of tho hull are?
Length, 585 feet; breadth, 08 feet; nor
mal draft, 27 feet 0 inches. In height
above tho normal water line tho forc
cnstlo will bo 25 feet 0 Inches; amid
ships, 22 feet 8 inches and astern. 17
feet 1 inch.
Tho superstructure, on tho upper
deck will be completely suppressed to
avoid obstruction to tho arc of fire of
tho main guns as well bb to reduce tho
A main armor belt of twelve inch,
uniform thickness, 200 feet long and
extending 4 feet 0 Inches above and
3 feet 4 Inches below tho normal wa
ter lino will protect tho machinery and
boilers. This bolt will continue seventy-five
feet moro at each end, er-
tendng to a point abreast of tho ex
tremo turrets, whero its thickness is
reduced to ten inches. 1
Tho English, American and Japanese
ideaB have been closely followed in
tho arrangements of armor. As re
gards thickness and distribution It
closely resembles the plans being car
ried out in tho construction of tho lat
est ships of Japan. The total weight
of all armor, barbettes, turrets, etc., is
estimated at 7,000 tons.
Steam turbines furnish tho motive
power. These aro located in three sep
arate nnd Independent compnrtmenta
Tho coal bunkers have a capacity of
4,000 tons, while tho oil tanks will
carry COO tons of that fuel.
Will Travel 22& Knots on Hour.
The main turbines can develop 39,
500 horsepower with ono inch of air
in tho fire rooms, but tho blowers will
bo required to produce a pressure of
two Inches of water. Allowing for
tho displacement of 27,500 tons, this
power will give tho Dreadnought a
speed of 22 knots.
Tho main battery consists of twelve
twelvo-lnch flfty-callber guns, mount
ed in pairs In six turrets arranged eo
as to flro from either sldo; twelve six
Inch flfty-callber guns installed la tho
central casemate, six on each side;
twelve four-inch flfty-callber guna and
many other smaller field and saluting
Tho twelve Inch gun turrets win be
protected by twclvo inch armor to
front nine Inch armor at tho sides,
eloven Inch armor at tho bade and
three Inch armor on top. Tho circu
lar barbettes which servo ns supports
to tho turrets are nine inches thick.
There will bo two conning towcra,
ono forward of tweh-o inch armor and
one abaft of nine inch armor.
The upper and lower decks will bo'
protected by one and one-half asd
three Inch armor.
