RUSSIANS AND GERMANS
A Remarkable Armistice
A Russian official message says: 'In the region of Tirul swamp we took the offensive and dislodged the enemy, taking some prisoners, but withdrew under German pressure. "We ad- vanced a mile in the direction of
Kalngen, but fell back before counter- attacks. General Ivanhkevitch, who led the first line, was wounded, but remained at his post."
Rome advices from Petrograd re- port great German reinforcements on the Riga front Under Hindenburg's personal direction. Berne states that the Swiss frontier contiguous to Ger- many remains rigorously closed.
Packs of hungry wolves infest the Polesie front, and the soldiers are beating them off with machine guns. In some cases Germans joined Rus- sians in fighting the wolves. Recently the Russo-Germans suspended a hot encounter and organised a joint hunt to drive off the wolves. Afterwards they returned to their trenches. There was no treachery on either side.
