Russia, March no The thirty odd kilometers of the arc around Plnsk have been fortified slnc i lie Qerman army look Its position here laal September a probably no cither eectlon OB any front. east, or outheast. The Prlpet swamp, which, ,,n account of the mild winter, ha formed a natural barrier between the Herman and Rusetan lines, has check iil both the Qerman advance and the Russian counter-attacks. Hut th Hermans leave realized that a sltiKle .old snap might make the swamp passable, and tc forestall such thing, they have resorted to every known expedient to make every foot of their i oaitiona Impregnable, Plnsk, in and about which the Qerman forces are lyinK, Is an ovcr urown Ruaatan village of 4;'., (WO in habitants, isolated, on a tongue of land projecting eastward Into the swamps. An Associated rress cortes- .ndciit, the first newspaper man to it I'insk front, and although be j previously visited several positions astern and western theu the fortress-like appear peninsiial of Plnsk'1 iin pemarkahly. The city is flunked on the south Dj the sum running riverV'in:i. Heyond the river lies half a mile of gjramp, Then , nines the river Strumen which, to the westward turns gradually and loins the Pina. sitill further beyond lies more swamp lands, which extend for several miles to the mainland and the llussinn position. To the north ward runs the river Juasolda, flanked on both sides by miles of swnmp lands, on either edKe of which He the Or inan and Kussian forces. fortunately for the troops which hold the northern section, the only place where an offensive van reason ably be expected, the swump land ter minates in dunes which are easily adapted for defensive purposes. Along ibis northern section regiments of cavalry have laboriously dug them selves into the ground and have per fected eVery means to make it impos sible for the Russians to break through. ' Scheme of Deivn-c. The defense scheme Is a series of Stnetzpunkte" ur supporting points. At one place the supporting point Is a villa, completely surrounded by trenches, shelters anil eniangiemeins. At another it is a sort of fort built into the earth, with subterranean pas sages, protected by sand bug's, earth and wood, and ringed about With hun- l,t-l of thousands of running feet of barbed wire. Bach supporting point Is not over ana yards distant from each other, and they are connected by wire entanglements from 100 W J"ii feet In width. The cavalry regiments that arc guarding the northern section arc among the finest In the Qerman army. Their officers include some of the greatest fiobles In the empire whose names are known all over the world, l-'or almost six months now they have '.tin in 'heir position, living alternately in underground shelters and in the meat villa that stands on an elevation plainly in view of the Russian posi t ions. Mow is it," asked the correspond ent of Count S , cousin of a famous QernUkn naval commander and chief of the brigade, "that the Rus sians do not shoot your villa to pieces? The' nearest Russian artillery position isn't more than six kilometers away." The count laughed. "There seems to be an unwritten and unspoken agreement that we won't touch the Russian headquarters if they leave ours alone. They have had ample evidence of the accuracy of our guns and know that W would . demolish their villa if we wanted to." Unlimited Woixl supply. Thanks to the fact that there Is an almost unlimited ipiantity of wood on hand, for Pinsk in peace times la one of the timber centers of Russia, the Hermans have heen able to build out across the swamps and 1" this way io establish far-flung outposts on every hammock of gtViund that is large enough to bear a blockhouse. Paralleling the Strumen half a mile to the south is a narrow, muddy dike or dam that was built some time ago by the Russians, partly to check the sWamp waters, and partly us a pros pective railroad bed. This dam ex tends to within a few kilometers of the Russian outpost positions nt Lju banskawo and Uornove. With the help of wooden stagings that crisscross the swump In almost every direction, the Germans have free and easy access to this dike, and have erected on it a series of block-1 house or supporting positions which are veritable 'arsenals. Kach Is equip. j fed with, machine guns, and from each extends, again on the stagings, runaways to "llorchposten" listen-; ing sentry positions, Ho near together are the block-' "nouses that care has to be exercised not to sweep one with the artillery of the other. To prevent such an occurrence great painted signs have been erected in the swamp in front of each blockhouse, Indicating how far to right or left the machine guns of any one fort may swing uithout brtnglYig m neighboring fort under, German fire. Almost due south of the farthest' such blockhouse, which Is said to be the most easterly position with the Hermann now hold, are the Russian i 's it ions, ut a distance of about KOO ! meters. Between the two lie a series, of hay piles or stacks, piled up long i'cfore the war. suainp lrcveii ttuc k Heeause the swamp effectually pre ents any attac k of a major nature and because the" men on both Side: urow restless from Inactivity, the i esting if unimportant position in the warfare at Plnsk Mu b time thai a frosty night stif fens no the sWamp a hit, both litis sien and German sentries make for the piles in an effort to carry off it little haj on the one hnrid, and to take pot shots at each other on the other hand. The Russians thus far have tile best of it so far as the hciv is concerned, r,,r tin. mies are near. rtiem. but the Germans claim th. rec ord for patrols wiped out or disperse,!. cme of thi lines of defense' lies in Pinsk Itself. One street is one lone trench ready foi instant occupancy, and the houses (hat line the Street! are barricaaea with sand bag and earthwork. The street, as well as the entire town; is . onstantlv patrolled, and it would be only a matter of min utes in case of an attack before the whole section would swarm with men Though t)n' methods of defense to the south and north of Plnsk, and the city itself, vary considerably, the ma chine gun plays an Important parti HVcrv A bile Kver, siiooorl iow nolo! In the long chain, both in the dunes and In the swamps, has at least one of these deadly weapons, And so i lose together are the supporting points that the whole section may be said ' to consist or a mac nine gunimnt. i Artillery plays probably a less im- portani part m the ptnak sector, than UyWhere else along the other front. The Russian gans thus fur have neVet been able to leach Pi risk und do uny damage. All shells fired thus far have fallen short. The Germans on the other hand need their artilleiw only for defensive purposes since It is onlj a waste of ammunition to try to destroy Russian positions across the swamp Will n no follow-up attack teith itifnnlri 1.
