society in its statement to
day gives tho following description
of the Dvina, which has taken on a
chnraeter of great military interest
as the immediate barrier to Get man
advanco on 1'etrograd.
Duma Drain Vn.st Hoglou
"The Dunn rhcr is now filling the
part that tho Vistula river filled
throughout tho first part of the war,
that tho Bug filled following tiie
fall of Wnrsaw and Ivangorod, nm1
tho powerful fortress nt Uiieimlnirg is
now of tho impoitanco of Novo
Ocorgievsk on tho contested Vistula
lino or Urcst Litovsk on a contested
lino of the Hug. The Dana cuts across
tho paths leading to the not Hi and
1'ctrograd and into tho north central
interior, where nie the rich industrial
cities, oscow, Tcr, Itjef. While the
Coiirlund is rich, the real lesources
of Itussia hegiii to the west of this
thiid Ittihsiau line.
"Tho Dmiii has its sourco in a
Fiuall lake cluster, about 800 feet
above sea level, in the government of
Tver. It rises in tho same highland
where two of tho mightiest risers of
Hnssia begin their courses tho Dnie
per, which flows to the south and
empties at Kherson into the I Slack
hca, and tho Volga, which flows
southeast and empties into the Cas
pian. Tho sources of tho Voted, the
river around whoso course a Ittis
sian folk evolved mnl a Itussiau
power grew, Ho in tho Valdai bills, a
Svw miles not Hi of tho lakes (hat
gio rise to tho Hiver Dunn. Tfcu
Hiurces of tho Dnieper uppronuli
near to tho Dunn on the south.
Sweeps in Flat Arc
"Tho rior sweeps ill n flat are,
Hiiithwcxt-nnithwoKt, to its mouth on
the (lull' of Kigu. It lakes up the
drainage of an area of UIMHIO sipiaio
milos, and is a commercial way of
i'irxt iiiiiortanco in western Hnssia.
Itiga, situated ten miles from its
mouth, is ono of Russia's groat us t
pint cities, and a significant part of
tho products that its merchants as
semble are brought down the Dana.
Tho Inrgo ocean-going steamers can
ascend only to Kigu, but river boats
ply as far as Vitebsk. Larger river
boats naxigato between Duenaburg
and Kigu, a distance of J33 miles.
"The river is (ISO miles long. It
upper course lies through a broken
country, firing rixo to many irregu.
Jnnfios in its bed. In its lower
couio it has an auragu depth of
about thirty feet and an average
breadth of 1100 feet. During the
time of the spring floods these iiiimih
nriimcnts are largely ineieascd. Tho
Dunn, then, often piles up fifteen feet
abovu its usunl level and spieads out
for u width of more than a mile. The
rixer is free from ice on an average
of 'J 10 days in the year.
"It ii estimated that more than
2,000,000 Mon of freight nre tnuis
poited over tho Duua each ycai.
Among it tributaries, tho .Moulin,
Vyat, Kaplya, Ulla, DUna and
llohler-aa, aio aNo navigable. The
Jlcromiia canal connects tho Dana
with the Dnieper, thus giving a
freight route by water from tho Hal
tie sea, ncros Iluropo, to tho Hlaek
sea. As is tho general ease with
Itiissmn rivers, the Duua abounds in
fish, a very delicate specie of sal
mon being caught in iU water?."
