Liao Yang,, Oct. 15.-r-Thia city
is in a tcrmoil - of excitement over
the, reports brought in by wounded
soldiers from' the .tight wing of the
Japanese army that General Kuro
ki has caught General Kuropatkin
in a trap, having oat him off with
four KuBsian divisiops which he at
tempted to save, and now' has the
Russian ' commander . isolated 'and
enveloped east, of BeeBihu. , The
general engagement continued all
day yesterday. ' Russian losses so
far are estimated at 15,000. The
Japanese have also suffered heavily
but no figures are available. .
The bearers of the news -ot ' the
latest Japanese victory state : that
Feld Marshal Marquis Oyama has
ordered. vast masses of ..reinforce
ments to the assistance ; of General
Kuroki to enable him to execute tha
coup as planned. ,'
General iCuroki is . puBbmg the
Russian divisions eastward in order
to make -their isolation' complete
and to preclude the possibility 'of
Kussian reinforcements reaching
then)'. '. ; - '''.'''.
The Japanese are fortifying their
positions to the north.. Another of
General Kuroki's columns today
captured the Shaotakan hills to the
south of Bsntsiaputze after a series
of fierce engagements, in which 1,2
00 Japenesft and 1500 Russians fell.
An Ata hnUa.K" .n M V n a V I .All '
and dqw tbe bills, which may be
called the key to the Russian left
advance, are in the .hands' of the
Japanese. . w-- ( :.'
The Japanese :were driven back
five times and hundreds fell in' the.
trenches without being able to de
liver one telling blow, ultimately,
however, a daring side attack1 was
delivered by two regiments- while
khe rest of the force renewed its ad
vance upon the entrenchments, and
in the face of a .withering fire storm
ed the Russian positions. i' The
slaughter was frightlul; tbe Rus:
siass resisting the- onslaught hero-,
ically until virtually driven to pre
cipitate retreat.' ."Japanese guns are
now being mounted on the hills,'
and several small detachments have
been ordered to. occupy the posi
tions. They will probablybe made
the base of one of the reserve forces
which' is being brought from ! the
outh. General Kuroki's total ' los
ses in the battle of Shaotakan ; hills
and the engagement? near Bensihu
are estimated at 3,0QO. " ' ' . .
A crushing defeat 'has been:, ad
ministered to the Ruseian.'right ;by
General Oku at Yentai. The entire
Russian lines, extending from 'the
Hun river to the railroad, were
driven back 20 miles with terribls
losses on both sides, and but . for
the awfnl punishment received by
the Japanese, General Kuropatkin'a
right would have been completely
crushed. As it is, the flank is ' ht
terly disorganized and the Russian'
commanders endeavoring to rally
their forces northeast of Changtan.
The losses inflicted upon General
Oku have not jet been estimated.
His complete victory' came after 1'6
Russian attacks had been repulsed.
The battle extended over a territory
four miles from the west to the
east and six miles : from the south
to the north. The Russians had
110 guns in action, ' keeping up a
terrific fire during the -attacks.
The Japanese guns numbered only
60, but the fact that the Russians
were advancing with utter disregard
of the cost of life afforded the Jap
anese the opportunity to direct the
fire with deadly effect. ' ; ; ' ; ! '
It was' evidently the purpose of
the Russians not only to check
Japanese progress to the heart, but
to break through the Japanese lines
and gain possession of the eastern
shore of the Hun river, whence
they could have proceeded to a
point at the rear of General Nodzu
and the center army. The fifteenth
and sixteenth Russian attacks were
only desultory and their repulse
was followed by the advance of the
entire Japanese line to a point six
miles north of the original position.
Th Russians retreated 20 miles to
the north. Seventy guns were cap
to red by General Oko . r .-

V Old Maid.' :.. . T I ! .
The true "old maid," like the true
poet, is born, not made, old maidish
ness being a question of innate char
acter rather than of incidental condi
tion. There are old ' maids of every
state and age and sex, , says Ellen
Thorney croft Fowler, creatures - who
revel in fuss, and batten upon detail,
and abide In the narrowest of narrow
nits. . Do we, not all know married
women with large families, who are,
nevertheless, old maids to the back
bone, just as we know adorable eldesrly
spinsters who have the minds of girls
and the hearts of mothers? And do We
not also know numbers of the (so called)
stronger sex whose absorption in trifles
and avidity for gossip proclaim them
old maids of the purest water ? : ! 1 1 -
