The reported capture of Riga is regarded most seriously by military experts here. They say that between these Germano-Russian troops and the city of Petrograd there is no force that would prove effective in stopping an advance upon that city, from which, once it was reached, it would be difficult to dislodge them. It was learned during the after noon that well-informed circles in London accepted the capture of Riga a fact. Their belief, it de veloped, was based on a private dis patch. 1 IS WINE REALLY WINE IF THE "KICK" IS MISSING State Food Rureau Is Worried by Lemon Extract That In vigorates Beyond Meosure Permitted by Prohibition James Foust, director of the State Bureau of Foods in the Department of Agriculture, has asked the Attor ney General's Department for an opinion whether sales of wine from which the alcohol has been removed and which is sold as wine without a "kick" comes under the Brooks high license law or the State nonalcoholic drink and food laws. Coming of prohibition has caused a multiplica tion of the nonalcoholic drinks on sale and all sorts of liquors which have fruits as a base have been ap pearing with the statement that they have been freed from alcohol or dealcoholized. "From information we have, there are nonalcoholic wines being sold as wines. They have the old flavor and the old bouquet, but less alcohol than pome people say is in butter milk. Now alcohol is the distin CITY TO PLANT TREE FOR EVERY MAN WHO FELL Live White Pines to Keep Green Memory of Harris burg Heroes PLAN FOR BIG KNOLL Name of Every Man Who Gave His Life to Be En graved on Plates In honor of the soldiers from Harrisburg who gave their lives dur ing the World War, memorial trees will be planted on Arbor Day, Oc tober 24, in Reservoir Park, it was announced to-day by Park Commis sioner Fi. 7.. Gross. Plans for the Arbor Day program will be com pleted in a few days by Sir. Gross and City Forester Louis G. Balti more. For each soldier who died in serv ice a white pine tree will be planted on the knoll in Reservoir Park, known as Cherry Hill. Each tree will have a marker giving the name of the soldier for whom it was planted, his rank and the date of his death.* The trees will be planted in a grove about ten feet apart. Ap proval of the location by Wttrren H. Manning is anticipated when he comes to the city next week. To Dedicate Grove An extensive program of songs and addresses is being arranged. Ef forts will be made to have all city school children be present to par ticipate, and the co-operation of the Boy Scout troops has been promised by* officials of the organization in this city. Forestry Commissioner Robert S. Conklin and Deputy Irvin C. Wil liams have approved the memorial tree plan, which has been adopted in other cities to commemorate dead soldiers. Three or four foresters from the State Department will as sist in the planting on Arbor Day. All the trees will be taken from the city nursery where there are plenty of hardy white pines. City Forester Baltimore is also completing his plans for other tree planting in the city on Arbor Day. Many requests for permits to plant trees have been received. Those who plant trees will be requested to dig the holes for the trees October 23. On Arbor Day the trees will be distributed, together with a booklet of instructions for planting and care. With Arbor Day rapidly approach ing, the people of Harrisburg are becoming more interested in the tree or trees which each will plant this year. In a day or two the Tele graph will print a list of trees suit able for lawn planting and also for street planting with the proper sizes and the approximate nursery cost. The prices will run from $1.25 to $3.50 per tree, but the average will not be more than $2, perhaps. Trees For Planting - i City Commissioner Gross is inter- I' esting himself in some special plant - j ins for Arbor Day and will prob- I ably be ready to make an an > | nouncement in ample time for the : co-operation of the people generally, j But it will not be necessary for any ' property owner who proposes to plant j a tree to wait for an official state ; ment. He should get into touch at | once with some reliable nursery ' manager who can give the necessary j information as to the size and ! species of trees suitable for Harris i burg planting. It can be said that the American j elm. ten to twelve feet high, may be 1 purchased atone of our leading nur series for $2. The same kind of an elm eight to ten feet can be pur ! chased for $1.25. It is urged that iso far as possible trees of the 'j larger growth be selected so that the j shade may be available in a reason ably short period of years. Those who are concerned may be interest ed in knowing that the line of trees on the east side of Front street, i between Harris and the city limits, . northward, comprise the American ! elm, and these trees have been | hardly and of reasonably rapid • growth. f.
