Cant make an instance of the PezDispenser class.

I loaded this java code in the repl:

public class PezDispenser {
 public static final int MAX_PEZ = 12;
 private String mCharacterName;
 private int mPezCount;

 public PezDispenser(String characterName) {
  mCharacterName = characterName;
  mPezCount = 0;
 public isEmpty() {
  return mPezCount == 0;
 public void load() {
  mPezCount = MAX_PEZ;


and then tried to make an object like this:

PezDispenser pd = new pezDispenser("Yoda");

Here is what i get:
