The limit of praise for food was
reached the other day in the Sixth
avenue restaurant In New York,
where the old-fashioned confidential
waiters are still to be found. A man
well known to the place came in very
late at night for supper and asked the
man why had taken his order for
years: "What's good to-day." "I'll

just got some clams in, fresh from the
water and (this in a whisper) I don't

I have often regretted it. Is it. do j
