S-UJOXIKI, March 15. Salonikl is the
best fortified city in the. world today.
All that has been learned about forti
fying cities during- this illuminating
war has been taken advantage of in
building- the 90 miles of Saloniki won
derful defenses. The work hast been
done by General Sarra.il, who prepared
the trenches at Verdun. From the low
lands of the Vardar to the Gulf of
Orphano is one continuous maia of
trenches and underground fortresses,
where great armies can defend the city
in comparative safety.' Passing over
the country, one sees nothing but the
barbed-wire entanglements; and yet
there are nearly a. quarter of a million
I have just been taken out to see
these defenses by Captain Jose Frappa,
of the French army, under the direc
tion of General Sarrail. I went with
out much enthusiasm. feeling- that
trenches which are not being fired
upon have little news value, but I have
come back impressed with the thor
oughness ano permanent value of the
Itlilge Partly Defends City.
Saloniki is so situated at the head of I
the Gulf of Saloniki that the eastern
half of the city is partially defended by
a steep ridge, but to the westward the
city ends at the edge of open prairie
country, with just enough roll to the
land to give an enemy good cover. This
prairie is practically uninhabited. The
sheep and goats are herded across it,
and that is all the advantage taken
of the rich soil. It has been troubled
country too long. Ko one has cared to
risk planting crops. Someone else was
too sure to reap them. The few houses
are in villages, and are poor affairs
We bowled out the Monastir road,
which Captain Frappa remarks "is not
entirely open yet." It is a good road,
too, kept in good repair by French
noldiers. All along the way were base
hospitals, aviation camps of different
kinds, some for reconnoissance, others,
for bomb dropping, and well-built mili
tary camps with planted flowers grow
ing before tho barracks. - -
At Topsin, about half way to the
Vardar, which reaches the gulf about
-0 miles to the westward, the Parisian
taxicab driver who was driving us
turned off the road and began climbing
the rolling hillocks over the grass. The
prairie was cut up for miles with the
deep ruts of last Winter's tough haul
ing. We passed camp after camp, first
the heaviest artillery, then on down to
the 105-millimeter and 75-millimeter
Vegetable Gardens Planted.
On one sunny slope near a great
camp , of most destructive looking
guns the poilus were at work planting
vegetable gardens, reveling in this
virgin soil. It was probably the first
time in the history of the Vardar that
lettuce, spinach and radishes had been
planted on that prairie.
From point to point we came upon
stretches of well-made new road and
soldiers laying more yet. These roads
were built with two feet of big rock
and finer screenings to top it off.
'There was a thoroughness about this
which impressed me, the full signifi
cance of which was not borne in on me
until we mounted a last roll in the
rrairie and slipped down toward the

fenses and they are certainly built to

Every Known Device There.
These fortresses contain every de
vice, every idea worked out in the
trench warfare in France and have
some improvements in addition. They
are much more complete than any
thing I have seen elsewhere, and I
should call them impregnable. For they
have every artful underground defense
worked out by the Germans in the
1-abyrinth, near Souchez in Artois,
which the French took last Spring at
a freightful cost, and it is not one
labyrinth, but a continuous series of
labyrinths. 90 miles long.
The cost of these defenses strikes
one forcibly. The actual amount of
work and material involved is con
siderably greater than that used in
the construction of a four-tracked rail
road from New York to Philadelphia.
The distance Is the same, and the work
even more expensive. We were taken
afoot through half a dozen of these
fortresses and shown a good many
things that I am not going to write
about, and in all covered perhaps
mile and a. half of the front line. It
took us several hours and I was
wearied with it, although we had seen
but an infinitesimal part of the whole.
While no restriction was placed upon
me and the divisional officers took the
trouble to explain in detail how the
whole system is worked out. I fee!
that I must exercise a certain discre-
nwil in i J iucill All pi Ulk. OUl
I can give the general plan without
fear of betraying military secrets.
Prnirlc Made Impregnable.
The defenses begin on the Vardar,
which is a meadow stream which an
enemy can be readily prevented from
crossing. The prairie on its left bank
rolls back 20 miles or more before it
reaches the mountain, making Salonlk
an easy city to take unless protected
by special defenses. This prairie land
Is the most important part of the 90
miles of defenses, and this is what we
were shown, but the whole of the 90
miles is just as complete,
v As far as possible, the highest points
on the prairie were chosen in a long,
pnaky line. All that is visible are the
barbed wire and the parapets. First
double entanglements of barbed wire
are stretched in a continuous line for
the whole 90 miles. It protects the
British as well as the French front.
Pack of them are three rows of under
ground fortresses they can be called
nothing less each complete in itself
and each in a position to enfilade the
attackers of the next. There is noth
ing like the continuous trenches in
France. Every two or three acres is
turned into a self-contained fort, each
with its rapid-firing guns in concrete

VIEW TAKES DURING LtLL IX BOMBARDMENT.
Verdun today Is a mass of wreckage and ruins, and hardly a house in the city remains untouched. In the middle
background is the cathedral, which has been considerably damagel by German shells. This old pile dates back to
the 11th and 12th centuries, and has withstood r.-oraplete demolition by the G erman besiegers. The city is a deserted
ruins, the echoes being disturbed oy an occasional dispatch bearer making ti Is way to another section of the Ver
dun sector. The fight for supremacy still rages. The greatest battle of the p resent war is being fought here and the
destiny of many nations may be decided
as to be indistinguishable at 200 yards,
each with rifle pits protected by para
pets of steel plate. About the same
amount of ground occupied by each fort
is left open between them, but this is
commanded by the second line of sim
ilar independent forts, so that the
enemy would only get into a trap by
trying to take the' second line before
finishing with the first.
JVcwr "Curiosities" Multiplied.
I reached a point by and by where
I hoped I might never see barbed wire
or concrete again, but the enthusiastic
officers led us on and on. Every time
it looked as if there might be hopes
of getting back to the automobile and
looking at it without labor those tire
less devils found new "curiosities" to
show us. I must admit they were as
tonishingly clever, and heaven help the
soldiers who are ordered to break
through, but it looked to me at times as
an enormous amount of work to defend
a city that was in no immediate danger
of being attacked.
But Just, as we came back into the
air, after one of our underground ex
cursions, I heard a sudden cannonading
breaking the Spring-like stillness. Over
in the mountains to the north we could
see breaking sneiis, ana tne nusn or.
battle descended over the landscape.
All at once this concrete and barbed
wire seemed touched by magic. It took
on a grimmer significance. I ceased
computing the expense and comparing
it to railroad construction. It had be
come as tensely dramatic as if the
shells falling on the far range of moun
tains were dropping in , the trenches.
Then I realized that if they did fall
thev would not do much harm to the
soldiers deep underground cutting down
the advancing enemy.
Mountain Battery Fire Deadly.
But the real fight was too much of
an attraction to miss completely, so we
skimmed off across the prairie again
until we met Greek refugee peasants
coming hurriedly over the mountains
seeking the protection of the defenses.
Farther on. resting In tne mountain
hollows, were dozens of Missouri mules
from which tho mountain batteries had
been unloaded. They were blazing
away at four small Greek villages just
inside tho frontier, upon which the
Germans, who had recently displaced
the Bulgarian troops on the frontier, had
descended to get material with which
to entrench themselves against the ex
pected Spring drive northward up the
Vardar from Saloniki.
The marksmanship of the mountain
batteries was deadly accurate and the
Germans could be seen through field
glasses carrying away their many
wounded. Then, .when they were pretty
well shelled out, the French chasseurs
could be seen crossing the plain on the
run. TheroMvas a skirmish and a few
minutes of rifle fire in each village
and it was all over.
As we passed the trenched fortresses
on the way back they did not seem so
far out of the war as they had that
morning, but the poilus were still
working industriously over their gar

Mrs. Fay Diamond, with a bullet from
a ,22-caliber rifle beneath her breast
bone, due to the boyish thoughtless
ness of her 6-year-old playmate, Artie
Kiser. The accident occurred last night
about 7 o'clock. That a grimmer
tragedy did not result is a miracle.
Dorothy, Artie and the latter's sister
were playing hide and seek. The two
little girls hid under a bed in tho Kiser
home. Artie, according to the story
told by the little tots, went to the
closet, took the ,22-caliber rifle and
fired at random under the bed. The
bullet struck Dorothy in the fleshy part
of the arm and lodged in the breast
near the second rib. Tho bullet did not
pass far from the girl's head.
The gun with which the shooting was
done is a magazine loader, and it is
thought that a cartridge was in the
barrel when Artie pulled the trigger.
The shot and the screams of the girls
brought aid. and Dr. F. G. Thayer was
called. The physician reports the little
girl resting easy and expects to remove
the bullet today.

BACKACHE, PAIN IN
Dear Mr. Editor:
For a long time I suffered from back
ache, pain in left side, frequent urina
tion (bothering me at all times durlnf
the day and night), and the uric acid
in my blood caused me to suffer from
rheumatism along with a constant tired,
worn-out feeling. I heard of the new
discovery of Dr. Pierce, of the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute. Buffalo,
X. Y.. called -Anuric," and obtaining
these tablets I at once began their use.
After giving "Anuria" a good trial I
believe it to be the best kidney remedy
on the market today. I hsve tried
other kidney medicines, but these
"Anuric Tablets" of Dr. Pierce's are
the only ones, in my opinion, that will
cure kidney and bladder troubles.
