who hfufe been haunting the
tSVoahingtoti navy yard for the
I; past 40 veai'8. says the Washing

Koyal, ami as far hack and further
than the oldest mail connected
with the yard eao remember, Kate
has been making her daily trip*
with her basket of candy, fruit
and notioiiB to sell to the sailor#
who'visit Washington on Uncle
fern's boats. Knfy has a speaking
acquaintance with all the great
men of the army and navy. She
has letters and jprcftents from
most of them, including <).inirals
Dewey, Sampson and Sohiey.
Kate made her llrst visit to the
yard during the civil war. She
was a young woman in those days,
and her bright Irish ways made,
her a great favorite. In later
years, whet) ago began to creep:
upon her, she began to form an
opinion tha< she was an active
and indispensable part of the
navy. She considered herself an
enlisted person ami becnine as devoted
to the cause as the most
loyal man. It is just *10 vears since

Kate began to consider herself u>
She has had ten red enlistment
stripes, representing four years'
each, placed upon a field <?f blue
cloth, and this she wort? to cole

the brilliancy of youth, and they
