understood that this a not the case and
that the attacks and counter attacks

Meanwhile the severity of the censor

leading to the defeat of General Ren

Frora September 7 to 13. the Ruaalana
took a strong position on the Una from
Angerburg. to Oerdauan, A Den burg and
Kehlau, tha left' wing resting on tha
Masurian UVea and the right wing pro
tected In the rear and flank by ttut forest
of Frlsching, whose pathless woods and
swamps furnished an almost Impregnable
position. The -Ruffians devoted great ef
fortsto entrenching their position and
brought up besides their heavy artillery,
Tlusa'an cavalry, which scouted far to
the west and south but otherwise, tha

In Tarls yesterday, after being kept sev.
oral weeks, together with her. husband,
a prisoner of war at Carlsbad, where she

the hotel In which they were kept under

tected by the forest and marshes, seemed
too strong, ha adopted the daring strategy
of sending tha flanking force to the lake
region to the south, tha same character
of movement by which the Ruaalan army
was trapped and captured a short time
before, and which In case of failure might
have been equally aa disastrous for tha
Strategy Baireeaafa)' Again.'
The atrategy, however, aueceeded, al
though General Rennenkampff offered a
dsaperate resistance to tha frontal at

Russians were forced bark slightly In the
oenter. When - tha flank movement of
the Germans waa - discovered already
threatening the flank, a counter move
ment was launched ags-inst them with a
new army collected at 1-yck, Including
the twenty-second corps, and .parts of tha
third Siberian corps, just arriving from
Irkutsk, but the counter attack failed
and on September 10 the Ruaalana began
to fall back on their malq position, re
treating In good order and well covered.
The Ruaaian artillery on tha right wing
appears to have, made , a good retreat
owing to a thtiely atari, while the west
wing waa hard pressed by the envelop

the Ruaalana retreated, serosa tha border
In two columns, while the main body went
northward and the others In an easterly
direction, pursued by the Germane, who
advanced far from tha border.
