Making Rug Days of Greatest Advantage
It was not without a good deal of regret that this sale was decided upon. It seemed almost a
crime to part with our own carefully-chosen rugs and carpets at such drastic reductions, beeing
no immediate relief, nor the opportunity of replenishing our Oriental rug stock until European hos
tilities are over, we decided "best none at all," rather than an incomplete assortment. 1 oday im
porters are asking from a quarter to a half more for any sort of Oriental carpet.
At the great concession in price, householders who will be wise enough to invest in these rugs
will hold prizes that they will refer to in years to come as purchased during the great European
war. In order to relieve the congestion of the past two days, we shall have extra salespeople and
spread the rugs over our entire rug and drapery section, so that inspection will be easy.

Austrian Defense of Lemberg
Stubborn, Says Victor.
RUSSIAN BAYONETS WIN

Days and Fighting Prevented
Sleep, hut Men Battle On.
PETKOGRAD. Sept. 9 (via London.
Eept. 10.) The Kech today prints the
following; details of the fall of Lem
berg: "The fighting which resulted in the
capture of Leniberir began August 29.
when the Russians drove the enemy
from Zloczuw t45 miles east of Lem
berg") and moved on to Golaya Gorka
a name which means 'the naked hill.'
"We spent the night on Naked Hill'
and the actual storming of the town
was begun at 2:30 o'clock in the morn
ing. Then followed a four days' bat
tle. A virtually continuous cannon
ade lasted from dawn to darkness
without cessation. Kven In the dark
ness the weary lighters got little sleep.
Whenever a single shot was heard the
men dashed for their places and the
battle boiled again with renewed fury.
Extinct Craters Used am Forts.
"The enemy's counter attacks were
delivered with great energy and a
dense hail of lead and iron was poured
over our ranks. The Russian advance
was greatly Impeded by the hilly na
ture of the ground and the great num
ber of extinct craters, which formed
splendid natural fortifications for the
enemy, who held them doggedly. Out
of these, however, the enemy was
driven in succession.
"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 ob
stinacy, but the nearer we approached
Lemberg the harder the struggle be
came. However, it soon was evident
that we were superior in artillery.
"At length the enemy was driven
from ail trenches beneath the protec
tion of the Lemberg forts. Our troops
r, ere weary, but la 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
hail down on the armies, which suffered
W orks Carried at Double Quick.
"At last we noticed that the re
sistance of the ' forts was growing
weaker. A charge 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 gun6 had
been destroyed. Not enough of them
had been left to continue an effective
defense, but the enemy was undis
couraged and tried to make up with
rifle fire what he lacked in artillery.
"Between the first and second lines
our losses were heavier than before.
but under bayonet charges the enemy
broke and fled in panic.
"Our troops entered the town at the
enemy's heels. We ran into the town,
despite our fatigue, with thunderous
"An episode which had much to do
with ending the enemyls dogged re
sistance occurred during the fighting
between the first and second lines. The
Austrians, in the hope of checking the
Russian effort to encircle the town, had
thrown out a heavy screen of Slav
troops with a backing of Magyars, who
had been ordered to shoot down the
Slavs from behind if they showed any
"This circumstance became known to
the Russian commander, who ordered
a terrific artillery fire over the heads
of the Slavs and into the ranks of the
Magyars. This well-directed fire set
the whole line in panic."
