Only half a dozen wine tasters have been known to history, the most re- | nowned of these being tbe wife ot a famous London wine merchant. Mme. Pommery, who died in Paris twelve years ago. and Signora Sousa who has a great reputation In Spain on ac? count of her Judgment and knowledge of wine. Wine tasters, lt appear*?, are born, not made, and must possess the gift of a rare und delicate palate. To this, ot course, must he added a knowl? edge of wines. MIK' Colllnore's taste ls so fine and her knowledge of wines such that she can discern from the first taste of a wine Just where the grapes grew from which lt was made, whether they were raised In Califor? nia or In the vineyards of France, tier many, or elsewhere. She can easily detect adulteration of any sort, or it there ls a blend and of which winos, and can tell the age of a wine almost to a day. As & matter of fact, there are no secrets that a bottle of wine can withhold from this remarkable Frenchwoman uiiic she has had a spoonful of lt In her mouth. She does not swallow the wine. Ir fact, she ls a teetotaller, aifd if sh< were to drink wine would lose her sub tie magic of taste. Furthermore, sh ls obliged to take the greatest car of her health.

Washing? ton has not among Us public edifices very many nota? ble examples of church architec? ture. There are of of course numer o*n chapels and churches In Wash? ington. In fact, a man may stand In any quarter ot the etty and see from a street corner two or three worship? ing places, but few of them are struc? tures of ImiHisIng appearance. Many capitals of tli? world are Just? ly famed for their churches and for little else, so unless there ls an uplift In this direction Washington will have to depend on Its other glories for dis? tinction. This deficiency, however, ls keenly felt, and even now there ls a movement afoot among all Beets to ^eautify Washington churches. The only churches In Washington at present worthy of mention are those built during the decade before and the decade after the Revolution. Probahly the most exquisite survival of these earlier periods of church building ls old St. John's Episcopal Church, which stands Just across La? fayette square from the White House. This ls, Indeed, a remarkable quarter from an architectural point of view. The historic square ls Hued with nota? ble structures, among them the Com? modore Decatur house, the John Hay house and the Arlington Hotel. Old |St. John's Itself ls classic In type and follows clo.ely the dictates of Inigo Jones. IU graceful portico, of the Ro? man doric order, faces Sixteenth street, while Its length extends along the square. Its belfry ls the most typ? ical feature about the edifice, Its clas? sic lines, pyramided to a spire, calling to mind the best of Ix>ndon steeples. There aro other churches in Wash? ington belonging to the same period, but smaller and less noteworthy. One (pf 60 years later, however, ls worthy mentioning, In that lt is a remarkable example of church architecture, al? though built (luring ji period of de? pression. It ls the Cathedral of St. IDominlc, a Catholic church In South*, west Washington, a little frequented section of the city. This church ls the most perfect Gothic building In th* city, and while not as ornate ns Con? tinental (.othlc cathedrals, lt ls of S high plane of excellence, lt ls not among the churches shown to sight? seers who come to Washington, how? ever, and ls seldom seen save by, those who frequent lt. Another of the churches built In the. "black walnut" period ls Grsee Church' In Georgetown, which ls contiguous to Washington and now a part of lt: Grace Church ls of red brick and gothic. Its chief merit Hes In a re? markable belfry, although the entire structure ls unusually graceful. Two notable churches, however, are now being erected by the advocates of better church architecture In Wash? ington. The one which ls to stand at the head of Washington's Hst of ec? clesiastical edifices ls the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul, at Mount St. Al? ban, which overlooks the entire city. iThls cathedral, which ls Just rising _bove its foundations, will be of the most elaborate gothic design It will resemble York Minster, an Old World church of fame, pointing two towers high above a maze of flying buttresses and carved Images of saints. The chapel of the Holy Nativity, a part of the cathedral, haa already been dedi? cated, but the mahn cathedral will be nearly as long In building as the Ca? thedral of St. John the Divine In New York. Another notable Washington church now under construction ls the First Church of Christ, Scientist, nearing completion, on Columbia Heights, a fashionable residence section of the city. This church ls classic In design and ls built on tbe lines of the Pan? theon. It will be the most Imposing church of Its type In Waahlngton. Equally as fine will be the Temple of the Scottish Rite, but that structure will not be completed for months and probably years to come. This general movement toward bet? ter church architecture will, in the next decade, put Washington on a plane with other cities ot Its size as far as excellence of such edifices le concerned.
