The meeting was well attended und was conducted with grent interest to all concerned. An Excollont Painting. There is an oil painting in.the win? dow of Watt. Rettew & Clny's store that is attracting a deal of .attention and deserves every bit It gets. It is a copy of a picture thet appeared some months ago In half-tone engrav? ing in a well-known snorting maga? zine, made from a photograph of the original painting by an, American artist, but the picture now on exhi? bition hns only the drawing of the original from the half-lone engraving, if the writer Is not mistaken, and the color scheme, treatment and technique are origlnnl with the local artist, who is Miss Elizabeth Slavmakor, of Berk? ley. Thus the picture Is practically an original, and Is excellent, faithful In color, atmosphere find life effect. It represents throe setters on a hill-side in search of game, and one can almost hear the hunter's "In, sir! Find 'em!" while the tense eagerness of the dogs is faithfully represented In each skil? fully drawn muscle, flashing eye and keen-scenting nose. It Is a pity the picture can not bo properly shown. Norfolk needs an art gallery, where, on proper background, with correct lighting and quiet sur? roundings, paintings of merit can be exhibited to show at their real value. Given an end wall, with a drapery hanging of wall tint and right light, and the beholder would doubt If the scene were not real and listen, for the sharp yelps, of anxiety from the dogs. No Money for Work. The houses on the line of the exten? sion of Tripoli street have all been torn down, and everything is ready for the work on grading the street to com? mence, but the Street, Sewer and Drain Board has no money, and no authority, to begin it. When it was determined to open the street it was expected that it would be ready for travel by the first of the New Year, but for some reason the Councils are yet holding back the appropriation of $12.000 or $15,000, though the con? demned property has been paid for. Emancipation Celebration. The colored population of Norfolk and vicinity will celebrate Emancipa? tion day next Mondny, January 1st. The colored societies, benevolent, mili? tary nnd society, will form a parade, which, it is said, will be the largest in many years. It Is expected that one thousand men will bo in lino. There will be speaking and exercises of the usual character. "llpi il" nro Frit 11*, words are but leaves."
