China, as evidenced during the Russo-Japanese War, is subject to rigorous winters. The rivers are frozen over and until the frost is sufficiently severe to make the ice safe, the crossing of the rivers is only possible by means of the ferry, a flat-bottomed punt-like craft from which the natives break their passage through the ice by means of poles.
