FOR A L0!!G TIME
London, Feb. 18 The military cor
respondent of the London Times in a
reoent survey of conditions, said that
there i little likelihood of any im
portant advance movement y either
side, on the western front for a long
time to oome.' Under the present oon-
dltions of weather and saround, with
artillery which knows the. ' range of
every landmark exaotly, be argues
that a successful offensive Is next to
. "The district in which the British
army is operating is practically a.
swamp," declares this observer. ,
"Water stands on tha stiff slippery and j
holding clay, rendering the movement
of infantry across country impossible.
For.weake on end it has rained, and
when it has not rained , thick mists
have enveloped tne country. , The deep
trenches ara filled with water, and the
necessity of standing in ' this has cost
us many casualties. . .
"It Is only on slightly rising ground
that life is at all supportable. The
fronts of the rival armies are covered
with a IsaibyrixrtJl of . trenches. On
both sides the front lines are often
only peats of observation. Acres of
barb wire cover meat of the positions.
In rear stretch many Unas, sigsags
and communication trsnohea.
. ' Breastworks have been construct
ed toy both, armies on the top of the
ground to meet the difficulties of hold
ing1 flooded trenches, while strong
posts, defended . villages and . farm,-?
steads, and other arrangements, com
plete the positions. In the - rear
Rmsses of eu&s f all call twos, so well
concealed that they are practically In
vulnerable, .and Joined up - by; tele
phones to all advanced - trenches,
make a strong framework for the de
fense, v, ..'
"Iuring all the months that the
British have occupied this district,
only three direct hits have been made
fcy Oerman shells upon the British
guns. An attack, therefore, has to
deal I with an intact artillery which
knows every range to an inch.- , ;,v
"A forward trench may often (be as
saulted or mined by either side, or it
may 'be knocked to bits fcy heavy
shells, or cleared' by trench mortari
and hand grenades, but a local success
of ' this character has , nq conse
quences, i'. ' The battling ih front Is
largely between snipers and men' in
the sapheads. , r '

weather. It has missed only six days
in the air since August, v Not easily
oan any hostile strategical surprise es
cape the notjee of theae airmen.
"The British army is not accustom
ed to winter campaigning and Is hot
Inured to it. Its . campaigns have
usually taken place In warm climates.
It had its lessons to learn and It haa
cost something to learn them. In
spite of this the army has stood the
test remarkably well, and is probably
in 'better health than any other,
friendly or hostile, operating rn the
region." a . '.::(- .'..'-;'
Sunday, Jan. 24. Almost immediate
ly firing had begun the . pheasants
made' a great stir- and fuss, and those
old residents able to read the signs
realized that the sensitive birds were
aware 'of. distant cannonading. Simi
lar demonstrations by the .birds had
been made on previous occasions.
The Rev.. .W. M. L. Evans, writing
from Saxby Rectory, Lincolnshire, on
the East Coast, . says: "It may be of
interest to Admiral Sir David Beatty
to , know that a large portion of the
population of , this, remote .parish, : in
spite of the censor, . knew all about
his doings on Sunday , morning' at an
early hour. ..- -
. "Our worthy clerk met me with the
announcement, 'There be rare goings
on In the North Sea this" morn., '. .
. "Why?' I inquired. , y
'"The pheasants is all . oyer ;- the
place -with their fuss,' " was the re
ply, "Many villagers," adds the rector,
"confirm his statement as to the ejtr
cited condition of the birds. '
1 The London Times, investigating
the matter, finds that pheasants else
where along, the coast have displayed
the same uneasiness during naval en
gagements. : Their sensitive, organism
catches the faintest distant tremors,
