rible. The slopes of a high hill were
littered with mangled bodies and

The attaok began with a heavy bom
ardment directed against nearly all
the Russian outposts and many o' the
main forts. The shelling of the re

upon retreated safely to the main
fortifications under the cover of dark
ness. At 4 o'clock the same after
noon the Japanese assault on High
hill began. The Japanese pian of at
tack never varied. First a bombard
ment again and another assault. The
desperate determination of the Japan

to fanaticism, their efforts never
ceasing during four days. 1
