According to a Description Giv'

Society.
' FICIAl. TO TMI TIL(OHAM)
WASHINGTON, Auk. H Kuboea,
the Greek inland In the Aegean sea,
where the exiled King Peter of Serbia
Ib reported to have found a temporary
asylum, is the subject of today's
war geography bulletin by the
National Geographic Society, which j
nays:
"The northern promontories of
Kuboea, on one of which the aged
'thronelofis Hovereign of the nation
which plunged Europe into the
greatest war in the world's history
reported to have taken refuge, are
most interesting sections of this
island which became a part of the,
kingdom of Greece in IS HO.
"Kuboea corresponds in size almost;
exactly to Long Island, N. V., having
iin area only four square miles larger
lhan the latter. It extends along I Ire
northeastern shore of flreeoo, being
aUttle. less than 100 miles lour, and
varying In width from four to thirty
miles. It Is separated from Hoetia
by the narrow Eultolc sea, which becomes
constricted to the Strait of
, Murlpus at the seaport of Chalcls, a
town of about 8,000 Inhabitants. At
Ithis point the Island is separated
from the mainland by only a few
yards. A rock rising front the waters
or the strait forms an anchorage for
I a stone bridge between it and the
! mainland, and for a swinging bridge i
toward Chalets, the latter being necessary
to allow vessels to pass
Ithrough the channel, where at Irregular
Intervals during the day lite
waters rush with the velocity of a
'swift river sometimes from north
'to south and at other times In the
opposite direction, according lo tire
tide. When the Kuboeans revolted
jfront Athens durig the f'eloponneislan
wars the Ilosoiians constructed
i the first bridge across the strait.
| making ICuboea an Island lo every
one except themselves."
Fatuous Waters.
I "If King I'cter has chosene th
northeastern promontory of Kitboca
I as his home while awaiting that day
| when ho hopes the Entente Allies
j will succeed In driving the enemy
Teutons from Serbian soil, lie can
overlook the waters where the battle
of Artemlsluni was fought in 180 13.
('., a prelude to the greater glory of
Salamls and the heroic defense oi
the Pass of Thermopylae. It was tit
Artemlslum that the (Ireek fleet,
commanded by Themistocles, the
i father of the Athenian 'wooden wans j
las its navy came to be known, met
the superior naval forces of Xerxes j
In a three days' battle. While not;
achieving a decisive victory, the patriotic
fleet received Its 'baptism of
blood' which prepared it fe snbselauent
triumphs over tit ', . sian
1 hordes.
"If. on the other hnml. i i \il"
has chosen the mon nous
northwestern promontory, under the
| shadow of Mount Gaetsudes with its
heights clothed in medicnal shrubs,
he will be able to enjoy the famous
Uaths of Heracles. These sulphur
waters, which are still much frequented
by the Greeks who suffer
from gout, rheumatism and digestive
ailments, afforded a favorite retreat
for the ltonian dictator, Cornelius
Sulla, self styled 'Venus's favorite,'
but known to his enemies ns 'lmlfi
1 lion, half fox.' One of the few acts
I of clemency recorded of Sulla was his i
I removal of the name of Julius Caesar
ifront the prescribed llHt of adherents :
of the Marius party. In sparing the
life of this youth of 19 Sulla is reputed
to have exclaimed prophetically.
'There is in that boy many a
Marius.'
Narrow Strait.
"At one point on the northwestern
coast Euboea is separated from Thessaly
by a strait which Is only u mile:
and a half broad. In was in this vi-|
cinity that the final episodes In the
eventful life of the Greek tlomi-srod
| Hercules were supposed to have oc|
curved. It was after he had accomplished
his twelve labors that Hercules
erected an altar In Euboea to his
father, Zeus. He sent a messenger,
Lichas, to Thracis for a white robe to
be used iu the dedication ceremonies.
Lichas brought a clonk i
given to hint by the Jealous Dclnira,;
who believed that the garment, dipped
in the blood of the dying centaur,
Nessus. was a love charm. It proved
to be a fiery ant! fatal poison, Herruleh,
as soon as he felt tile sting of
j the coat, hurled the innocent Lichas
over a cliiT. near the village which
now bears the latter's name and
which may be King Peter's retreat.
"The most beautiful scenery in all
Greece is to be found in the fertile
valleys and towering mountains of
Euboea. which gets its name, 'rich
In cattle.' from the fin? pasture land
of its plains. The inhabitants, more (
than 100;000 in number, are chiefly
engaged in cattle raising and in agriculture,

require dogs to be kept tied
j up or muzzled.
Five days from this date the dog
J catcher will be notified to kill any dog
found running at large (August 10,
l!ilfi). On and after August 16. 1916,
if a dog is found running at large and
j the owner misses the dog the chances
are that it has (ell a victim of the dog
catcher.
Male dogs in the city of Clarksburg
should be assessed One Dollar and
females Five Dollars. After September
i, .191U this ordinance will be enforced
and any dogs found running at'
large will be taken up and shot if no
license tag can tie found or no record
I in the City Clerk's oilice showing that
a license has been issued to the owner
. of such dog.
Any person owning a dog and wants
the same disposed of can notify the
j police department or the health de- j
partnicnt and the dog will be sent for
and killed free of charge.
Cities and towns ail over the country
are fighting the dog nuisance and
Clarksburg docs not want to be a bacf?
number on any thing. Get license on
your dog or have him disposed of.
