THE RUSSIAN CAMPAIGN.
WONDERFUL GERMAN FORTIFICATIONS
Petkograd, December 8
Remarkable evidence of German defenoe measures enabling them to hold the front with the scantiest defence forces has been brought to light by the Russian successes on the Karamern field. The fortifications --urpass anything previously seen There are seven rows of trenches which form a whole underground oity for shelter.
A prisoner says that the Eaiser in October declared that soldiers must dig, .and that men who did not dig their comrades' shelters must dig their comrades' graves.
That's a nasty cough I "Let "NAZOL 1 tackle it. A lew dropß taken on lump sugar will aoon relieve you. "NAZOL" ie the Burest oough reliever in New Zealand. Sixty de_B3 1/6.
Tbe entanglements in places were 200 yds deep. A portion consisted of tough wattle in order to economise wire, and wa". equally difficult to back through. The Germans on tbe middle Dvina burn off forests and plant sharp branches as "Chevaux de Frise," which sometimes is a mile deep and sown with mines, which j explode on contact.
