Smiling broadly, the distinguished
Jurist laid a hand on Ansberry'
"No, my dear Ansberry, a blind man

Then turning to a friend who hap

No Women Gourmet
The discussion in Paris as to what Is
a gourmet has resulted In the claim
f one well-known writer that no
woman ever waa one. In defining a
gourmet, he says: "A gourmet Is not
a person, who, as some think, over
eats or overdrinks merely for the sake
of eating and drinking. No, he Is too
particular for that. Gourmets are
rarely or never 'gormandlsers' they
are too particular about those two
