ordinarily second In extent to that of no
state in Europe, excepting Russia, 1,000,

"In the contending countries extraor
dinary efforts are being executed in au
tumn seeding. The services of women
and children, men exempt from military
service, refugees,, prisoners ofwar and.
.soldiers temporarily relieved from the
ranks - are ' being utilised in the fields.
. . Because of strained labor conditions ami
of the occupation of certain territory
