tiUt of the fall of Imbrg:
'The commence ment of the fighting,
which resulted In the capture of tmbcrg.
began August 19, when the Russian drove
the enemy from Zlocsow, forty-five miles
east of Lumbers;, and moved on to Oolsya
Oorke a name which means 'the naked
"We spent the nlgnt on Naked hill and
the actual storming of the town was be
gun at 1:30 o'clocK In the morning. Then
followed a four days' battle. A virtually
continuous cannonading continued from
dawn to darkness without cessation. Even
In the darkness the weary fighters got
little sleep. Whenever a single shot was
heard the men dashed for their places and
the battle boiled again with renewed fury.
"The enemy's counter attacks were de
livered with great energy and a dense
hall of lead and Iron was poured over our
ranks. The Russian advance was greatly
Impeded by the hilly nature of the ground
and the great number of extinct craters,
which formed splendid natural fortifica
tions for the enemy, which held them
doggedly. Out of these, however, the
enemy was driven In succession.
Suffer tram Thirst.
"We suffered much from thirst, for
the stony country was devoid of springs.
The days were oppressively hot and the
nights bitterly cold.
"Both sides fought with great obsti
nacy, but the nearer we approached
Ivemberg, the harder the struggle be
came. However, it soon was evident that
we were superior In artillery.
"At length the enemy was driven from
all s.'des beneath the protection of the
Ierrrberg forts. Our troops were very
weary, but In high spirits. For two days
the fight raged around the forts, but we
were always confident of the prowess of
our artillery. The big guns of both sides
rained a terrific hall down on the armies,
which suffered terrific losses.
"At last we noticed that the resistance
of the forts was growing weaker. A
rharge at double quick was ordered and
we carried the first line of works. It
was evident from that point that many
of the enemy's guns had been destroyed.
Not enough of them had been left to
continue an effective defense, but the
enemy was undlscouraged and tried to
make up with rifle fire what he lacked
Enemy Breaks and Flees.
"Between the first and second lines our
losses were heavier than before, but
under bayonet charges the enemy broke
and fled In panic.
"Our troopa entered the town at the
enemy's heels. We ran Into the town,
Respite our fatigue, with thunderous
"An episode which had much to do with
ending the enemy's dogged resistance oc
curred during-the fighting between the
first and second lines. The Austrlans In
the hope of checking the Russian effort
to. encircle the town had thrown out a
heavy screen of Slav troops with a back
ing of Magyars who had been ordered to
shoot down the Slavs from behind If they
showed any hesitation.
"Till circumstance became known to
the Russian commander, who ordered a
terrific artillery fire over the heads of the
Slav and Into the ranks of the Magyars.
This well directed fire set the whole line

If these Russisns have been landed In
