London, Oct. 30.?A graphlc descrip
tlon of the stormlng of Kirk-Kilisseh
has been sent by an eyewltness to a
Lelpslc newspaper. The eyewltness
was a German Red Cross asnlstant
who was ln the town at the time. The
Hulgarian attacks, he says, were car
rled out with des[>erate bravery, and
.very lnch of territory had to be car
ried at the polnt of the bayonet and
only with terrible loae.
The flnal night attack on the vlne
yarde was suoeessful only after l fear
ful hand-to-hand flght, in which bay
onets, clubs, rifles, sabres, yatagans,
knives and even axes were used. Aft?>r
the repulse of the flrst attack on the
vineyards ln the aft-Tnoon the wrlter
went over the fleld to belp the wounded.
He declares posltively that the bashl
bazouks and Kurds who followed the
retreating Hulgarlans massacred and
mutilated the I'ulgarian wounded ln an
Hppnlllng manner. The Ittcky ones
were thoae who were kllled outright
by bullets, for the way in whl< h the
Kurdlah devlla had mangled the help
less wounded was awful. In most < ases
the vlctlms' eyes had been gouged out
and their eara and nosea cut off.. Many
had had thelr atomacha rlpped open.
The fighting went on all night long
by the blindlng glare of searchllghts
