NORFOLK TO LOSE TAXES. The Board of Public Works was In session at the Capitol yesterday dis? charging routine business. The board lias entered an order to the effect that certain lloating property of the Nor? folk and Western Railroad Company tit Lambert's Point be taxed in Nor? folk county instead of the city of Nor? folk. The board listed the property for taxation in Norfolk county. The company recently sued to have the board restrained from taxing ibis property, saying it was registered In Philadelphia, and subject to taxation' there. The court held that as it was owned by a Virginia corporation it must be taxed in Virginia. The pro? perty was of the value of $11(1,000. The Board of Public Works thought Lam? bert's Point within tiie corporation lim? its of the city of Norfolk, but was as? sured by the authorities of Norfolk county, that it was wholly within the county, and was requested by them to havo the property taxed In the county.

Tho Pianist's Strange Response to Society "Woman's' Request. An enthusiastic musician of this city5 tells an amusing and hitherto imprinted anecdote of Padercwskl's last Southern tour, says the New Orleans Times Democrat. "I encountered the pianist and his pnrty when they were passing through Georgia," he says, "and had the pleas? ure of riding for some distance with them in their orlvate car. At one of tho stops Paderewski was handed a let? ter from a certain gr?nde damo anil noted society louder of a large Western 1 city. It was tho most gushing epistle I ever listened to, and, after sevw pages or what was evidently intended ns a tribute to his art, the writer woimd up by requesting 'a lock of hair,' and inclosed a stamp for return postage. "When the laughter had subsided Padercwskl's secretary proceeded to In? dite a reply, which, ns nearly as 1 re? member, ran almost as follows: " "Dear Madame?M. Paderewski di? rects mo to sai- that it affords him much pleasure to comply with your re? quest. You fail to specify whose hair you desire, and, to avoid error, he has secured a sample.from each of'the staff en voyage; to wit, his manager, his secretary, his valet, his two cooks and ] his waiter, together with a small por? tion from a cat and a mattress, belong? ing to M. Pullman, proprletalre of the coach de luxe which wo occupy. I have tho honor to bo your obedient servant." "There was some uproarious sport in collecting the souvenirs, especially that contributed by tho cat belonging to the Proprletalre Pullman, but they were. finally secured and tho package mailed at the next station. I have often won? dered what the emotions of Fadere w ski's admirer must have been when she gazed on that collection of hirsute freaks." Crisp and Dainty.
