Here are the latest moves in tne
Russian dnve in the far east: (1)
shows where the north wing of the
Turks, defeated at Mzerum, is falling
back on Trebizond, which is threat
ened also by the Russian Black sea
fleet. (2) shows the Turkish center
retreating to Ersinjan. (3) indicates
the third Turkish army, now cut off
from communication with the others,
and fleeing toward Diarbekr. (4) de
notes the route of the Russian ad
vance; once they reach Ras-el-Ain,
which is the -present terminus of the
Bagdad railway, they can effectually
block further supplies being sent to
Bagdad and will "ultimately beinra
position to 'follow the 'railway toward
the Mediterranean, thus cutting off
the German advance on the Suez
canal. (5) shows where a British
force is surrounded by Turks at Kut-el-Amara,
to whom relief is coming
up the valley of the Tigris, forming
a new peril to the Turks.
