twelve heavy guns nnd leaving iniiny
dead upon the Held.
The report is unotllcial, but Is pub
llalied lo Itii'slan newspapers with the
consent of the censor, Correspondents
at the front for l'ctrograd newspapers
telegraph that the Hermans made u des
perate effoit to defend a line of in
trenchmcnls from Kullscz to Czensto
ihuwx, but could not stand against the
bayonet attacks of the Russian Infan
try. The victory Is said to have been
gained largely hh the result of the
rapidity of the Itusslans in sending a
large cavalry force around the left
wing of Hen, von UlndenhurK's army.
The Hermans lacked cavalry sup
ports sulllclent to meet und check the
turn.ng movement and when the Rus
sian infantry moved forward Cien. von
Hindenburg's troops were compelled to
retire swiftly to a new line of defence
centring on Ostrovo In Silesia. The
