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.

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.

BBBBaBBBBaBBBBBBBaW&SBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBaH MYSTERY OF A BATTLESHIP 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 Armored. 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 American Dreadnoughts. 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 27,500. 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, 000 however. 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 target surfneo. 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 guna 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.
