Joseph H. Gaines, former congressman of Charleston, the new state chairman, has arrived to begin his work. t . A ten days' stumping campaign to begin Saturday In Fayette county was tentatively arranged today tor Ira E. Robinson, of Grafton, nominee for governor, who Is already on the ground. cai^Hs com nun BOW HI Board of Affairs Prepare Official Notice For Prevention of Epidemic The order of the board of health postponing the opening of the schools until September 25, was confirmed this morning at the Board of Affairs meeting and an official notice prepared In which all children are prohibited from attending public gatherings such as at picture shows, churches, theaters, family reunions and picnics. This order affects all children In the city under 16 years of age and is thought to be the most practical method available for the prevention of Infantile paralysis, which has now spread from neighbor lng states to nearby towns. Seventh street, between Virginia avenue and Chamberlain street, was ordered paved by the Board and Finance Commissioner Barnes and Street Commissioner Lehman authorized to pnrchase materials and to do the work. Spence street, between Grafton and Bennett streets, was also ordered paved. Commissioner Lehman and Finance Commissioner Barnes ordered to purchase materials and to proceed with the work. Again Banquo's ghost presents Itself in the form of the dog nuisance In the city. For several years tbe city has been trying to devise a scheme to do away with stray dogs and to see that all dogs which are kept In the city are licensed. This work since July 1, 1918, has been In the hands of the Humane Society which apparently has been unable to handle the matter efficiently. A comparison of the work done during the first two months of last year and the first two months of this fiscal year are very discouraging. To date, there bave been but 119 dogs taxed. Last year on September 1 there had been 256 tagged and about 50 killed. None have been killed this year. The Board passed an order requesting a report from the Humane Society as to what action it Intended In handling the situation. It Is likely the matter will be put In the hands of the police again as complaints are coming In from those who have paid tags and from those who are annoyed by dogs whlqh are untagged. Concrete walks were ordered laid in front of the property of the C. B. Car uo/ iicna buu iu lruut oi me neming property on Locust avenue and Cochran street.

J. O'DONNELL.) MARLINTON, W. Va? Sept. 4.? Jack, being Just an ordinary hound dog, doesn't know all the facts In the "human hangman's noose" murder case, bnt he does know his master, Dr. Oliver A. Howard, is in trouble and the body of his mistress. Mrs. Howard, was carried away in a black box covered with flowers children gathered In (he mountains. Prior to the day his mistress was found dead, her neck broken by wbat physicians call the hangman knot grip, and Dr. Howard was arrested and charged with murder, Jack was the happiest dog In the Allegheny mountains. Today he Is the saddest. Every afternoon. Just before the sun sinks behind the mountain range, he trots up the long road to PocahontaB county Jail where. In dog language, he tries to tell his master he is being loyal. Jack seems to understand that his master's old friends deserted him after he was arrested in connection with this "Jlu Jitsu murder" alleged to have occurred after Mrs. Howard returned from a suffrage meeting which the doctor Is said to have forbidden her to attend. Before the body of his mistress was taken to her old home at Fincastle. Vs., for burial, Jack's life was different One day he would accompany his mistress, called the "little mother of Marlinton," up to the homes on the mountainside where he played with other dogs while the "little mother" cheered the sick or sat with other mothers who were expecting newcomers into the world. The next he would trot contentedly behind the master's buggy when the doctor went on calls. When Summers Sharp, prosecuting attorney, went to the Howard home the day after the funeral he found Jack huddled In the kitchen. Jack refused to eat. He seemed to know clouds hung heavy over his home. Dr. Howard will be placed on trial in November. Prosecuting Attorney Sharp says he will call witnesses who will testify that Dr. Howard boasted he could "break one's neck in a twinkling" and demonstrated a Jlu Jitsu hold which consisted of placing the thumb of the right hand over the bridge of the nose and the fingers under the left Jaw bone and Jerking the head. The twist in the "hangman knot twist" described by surgeons, has the same effect as a hangman's knot used when a person is executed, breaking the neck and causing immediate death. Dr. Howard proclaims Innocence and declares he will prove his claim that he found his ^Ife suffering from a narcotic.
