RHEUMATISM Physician Believes a Genuine Rem edy for the Disease Has Been Found Uheuma, the wonderful rheumatism Remedy sold by H. C. Kennedy and Rll druggists, gives quicker and more lasting relief than other remedies cost ing; many times as much. liheuma gets at once into the blood and purifies it, allowing it to feed freely into the veins and arteries and passes the deadly poisonous secretions into the bowels and kidneys, from which they are quickly thrown off in a. natural, healthy way. Head what a reputable physician Bays about Rheuma: "I have made a most careful investigation of the formula employed in the manufacture of Rheuma, and I heartily recom mend it as a remedy for all forms of rheumatism, gout, and complications arising from neglect of these diseases in their early stages. On the basis of the formula used alone, I find Rheuma far in advance of the methods gen erally employed in the treatment of rheumatism, and altogether different In composition from the remedies usually prescribed." This should give any sufferer from rheumatism confidence in trying Rheuma. It is so inexpensive you cannot afford to do without it.— Advertisement.

J ■ ' : ' ' • . ; Harrisburg Telegraph TUESDAY EVENING, CENTURY-OLD ORDERS REVIVED 111 LONDON Citizens Given Instructions as to What They Should Do in Case of an Invasion London, No. 17, (correspondence of the Associated Press). The request voiced by several London newspapers that the citizenry of England be in structed by the war office just how to act in case of a German invasion— whether to fight as citizens or remain passive—has prompted Hl9 Daily Mail to reprint orders issued more than a hundred years ago to meet a similar contingency. The author of the orders was the Duke of York, com mander-in-chief, and they were pro mulgated in 1801. when Britons re garded the landing of troops by Na poleon as not only possible but prob able. At any rate, this is to be in ferred from the tone of the duke's pronouncement. Commenting on this ancient docu ment. the Daily Mail says it is "of special relevance at the present time, when the Germans are loudly pro claiming their intention of attempting invasion of this country." The order was headed: "Information and Instruc tions for Commanding Generals and others." "We must naturally suppose, from the host of foes that surround 11s and form the advantages our insular sit uation gives us while they can be kept at a distance, that their great object must be an invasion of these countries. The consequences of success would be to them so great that they may be led to attempt it, notwithstanding the su periority and exertions of our navy and the vigilance and gallantry of our seamen. <• » « "Before the descent of the enemy is undoubtedly expected, or the particular object of it is known, the troops will be cantoned or encamped in the man ner that appears the most advan tageous. • * » Dispositions will have been made for breaking up roads, driving and abandoning the country on the enemy's route, etc. "On the first landing of an enemy, if he cannot be prevented in the at tempt, not a moment must be lost in assembling the troops and pushing on the most advanced, however few in number, till more can be collected. The great object must be constantly to harass, alarm and tire an enemy, and to impede his progress till a sufficient force assembles to attack him. The nature of the country affords every advantage for that purpose; intricate and inclosed, it is exceedingly difficult for an enemy to advance. He is nevei to be lost sight of by the light troops. Every inch of ground and eVery field may to a degree be disputed, even by inferior numbers . "As soon as ever he has quitted the coast he must be surrounded in front, flank and rear; a knowledge of the country and a superiority of cavalry gives that advantage. He must lie obliged to fight for every article of sustenance. The 'country must be driven and everything useful within his reach destroyed without mercy; this the necessity of the case and the infinite consequence of giving him an immediate check: cattle and horses must at all events be removed."

HARRJSBURG TELEGRAPH 45 Farmers Fooled to Dillsburg With Wagon Loads of Choice Apples Forty-five farmers of Cumberland county picked a wagonload of apples and drove into DiUsburg yesterday for —Nothing.

TREE CENSUS URGED i BY J. H. ram Believes Shade Now in Streets Should First Be Conserved; Forester Needed Immediate census of nil the trees in Harrisburg with a view to treat ing and properly maintaining those that now exist in the city's streets rather than extensive planting of new ones, was urged this afternoon by J. Horace McFarland in an interesting talk to City Council on the shade tree commission law. Air. McFarland, father of the law and a former park commissioner, had keen invited to talk to the commission ers on the subject and to explain some of its sections over which there has been considerable discussion. Chief among these is the question of the equity of levying the cost of planting the trees upon the abutting property owner when his neighbor who enjoys the shade is not required to pay. This question as Mr. McFar land pointed out, is more or less aca demic, as it has never been raised in the practicable carrying out of tree planting under municipal direction. The cost of maintenance is provided by all the citizens by taxation as it is provided that a tax up to a tenth of a mill be levied for the purpose. Mr. McFarland also pointed out that the outside, cost of planting trees has never been more than $3.50. Census Necessary Harrisburg's first act he pointed out should be to take a complete census of Its trees and to provide the method of cleaning, spraying and otherwise property caring for those it. now has, and to regulate the future planting in order to insure uniformity. Differ ent types of trees would necessarily be planned for different streets, he said. The speaker quoted data from oth er cities, including Philadelphia, show ing what has been done for the care and maintenance of its trees, and com pared the splendid results that have been obtained from year to year. This data included the trees that had been planted by the municipality and those planted by individuals by permit is sued by the Shade Tree Commission. This is permitted by the act and would of course apply also to Harrisburg. A resolution providing for the ap pointment of a Shade Tree Commis sion was recently drawn up by Com missioner Lynch who appreciates the advantage of the law with respect to regulating the planting of trees in streets where pipes are put down. In numerous places Mr. Lynch ex plained the spreading of roots has formed an obstruction. The roots are drawn in the direction of the pipes he said by the moisture and in some in stances the street superintendent has been compelled to wrap the piping with oakuiu. The resolution was placed in Com missioner Taylor's hands but he asked that action be postponed pending the talk of Mr. McFarland. Want Ibach Appointed Captain of Detectives City Council was petitioned this aft ernon by seventy-five prominent busi ness and professional men to reorgan ize the city detective department, making Joseph Ibach captain of detec tives. The petition is headed by Spencer C. Gilbert. The petitioners point out that Ibacli has made the Harrisburg detective bureau one of the most effi cient in Pennsylvania. Defer Action For One Week on Front St. Paving Action on the resolution authoriz ing the city to accept deeds for un acquired park land from abutting property owners in return for the settling of half the paving assessment in North Front street from Kelker to Maclay was postponed for a week by City Council this afternoon. The ques tion will be taken up in detail with City Solicitor D. S. Seitz. Work along the river front was relayed last week because one of the property owners refused to permit the city to treat the bank In front of his house because he had not yet turned it over to the city. He offered to do so if relieved of all but half of the paving assessment. Commissioner Lynch offered a reso lution transferring $2,151.68 from the fund for repairing Dock street bridge to the fund for repairing Paxton street.
