the war, Mr. Keen, unknown to his
touring neighbors, was picking out a
seven-passenger model of his favorite
automobile for Boston delivery. After
touring 2500 miles through the New
England -states, the Keen party started
homeward overland. "When they reached
Denver they received a card from the
Cassels, addressed to their Seattle ad
dress and forwarded and reforwarded
several times, notifying them that they
had been driven from Europe and were
about to leave Cleveland, O., in a new
car for a road tour home.
From that' point forward Mrs. Keen
scrutinized every hotel register care
fully, looking for the names of her

they saw on the hotel register in Medi

VIENNA, via London. Oct. 3. An of
ficial communication signed by Field
Marshal Potiorek has been given out
here as follows:

strongly fortified in positions further
protected with barbed wire entangle
ments, have proceeded slowly but favor
"There has been started energetically
a movement to clear the regions in
Bosnia which have been disturbed by
Servian and Montenegrin troops and ir
regulars. "The announcement from Servia con
cerning the annihilation of the Fortieth
division of the Hungarian honved is a
further proof of the vivid imagination
of the Servians. This division of
troops, as the Servians during the last
few days have had repeated opportunity
to learn, is in me Dest or condition at
the battle front and it participated
gloriously in engagements last week at

"The Barbarians" is the title of the
play to be produced. It was given first
in Germany and later in France during

with the relations between the two
nations at the time of -the Franco

French householders of the belief that
the Germans were barbarians, at the
time of the Franco-Prussian war, forms
the theme which is dramatically developed.

TRULY LOW PRICES
On Really High-Grade Pianos.
There has been much talk of late as
to what the right price should be on
strictly high-grade pianos. The selling
price is all determined upon the cost
of doing business; that is to say, how
much per piano it costs to actually
market them. Any thinking person, or
any business man knows that in sell
ing a large amount of pianos they
can be sold for less per piano than
a small number can. For full partic

BAVARIAN LOSS 1(1
First Corps, Bearing Brunt of
Early Fighting, Wins Its
ENEMY'S GUNS DEMOLISHED
Detailed Report ol Battle of Saar
burg Issued by General Staff
at Berlin Superior Forces
Met In Beginning.
BERLIN, Sept 14. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) Losses reach
ing a half of their strength were suf-
f!:re'Lby some of the contingents of
the First Bavarian Army Corps in the
battle of Saarburg in the middle of
August, according to a detailed report
5 Anl8battle Jsaued by the general
staff. The report says:
"After the daring invasion of French
territory, in whiot, v, . ,
" 11 n l stLVttiiiLU
Army Corps, unassisted, had fought its
way oeyond the line of Blamont and
Badonviller, the corps had to fall back
uuiuu mo ottttr rwver, the leaders hav
ing planned to offer here an energetic
defense against the superior French
French Follow Closely.
"The French advance guards followed
closely, the mass of the French army
opening in their rear -n its great of
fensive movement into Lorraine. Au
gust 18 the corps again reached Saar
burg and reluctantly saw itrelf obliged
to abandon this town temporarily, since
its position for the coming battle lay
to the north and east of the city.
"On the morning of the 19th two
French cavalry divisions appeared be
fore Saarburg. movintr out in mam
formation without an:' cover. A few
snots from our heavy artillery forced
them to scatter. The French infantry
that night pushed gradually on Saar
burg, the woods to the left filling
up more aud more wi'h hostile infan
try. It later developed that the entire
Eighth and part of the Thirteenth Army
uorp3 were lacing the First Bavarian
Infantry Eiccc for Battle.
"The orders for the First had been
that it was to defend decisively its do-
sition between Rommulfingen and Rled-
mg. On the night of the 19th came the
order for a general attack along the
whole i.ie at 11 A. M. on the 20th.
"Beginning; with the first light of
morning, the artillery of both sides
bbmbarded each other heavily. The in
tillery and the infantry at the rear,
awaited eagerly the hour of its begin
ning. "In the meantime the corps had pre
fantry, which lay in trenches under
extremely heavy fire of the French ar
pared its formation for the attack with
out the enemy becoming aware of it.
"The cavalry and the heavy batter
ies of field howitzers and mortars re
mained In the rear. The balloon of the
field ariship department had -ascended
near Kirchberg and its observations
aided in the accurate marksmanshir
of the heavy artillery.
Artillery Pire Devastating.
"The attack began with great vehe
mence at the stroke of 11 with an ad
vance of the first lines. The neighbor
ing corps on the left Joined in. The dust
clouds thrown up by the artillery pro
jectiles showed how the enemy's lines
were breaking up. The French artil
lery, stationed north of Saarburg and
in the woods west of Saraldorf and
Finslingen, was- completely surprised.
"The German artillery, which had
cleared the way for the infantry . at
tack by shelling the enemy's positions
in the woods, had, as was learned after
ward, a. devastating effect on the
French infantry. The heavy artillery
had a like effect on every visible bat
tery and against the hostile infantry,
where a few shots sufficed to mow
down whole companies.
"The effect of the enemy's artillery
and machine guns was such that the
attack itself went but slowly. By 5
o'clock Volfingen, the forests west of
Saaraltdorf, and the southern part of
Saarburg had been taken and the enemy
was retreating everywhere. By even
ing, the Second Infantry-division, which
had been Joined by the. Third Brigade,
had taken Langd Zittersdorf and the
second division had taken the heights
by Hof Saarburg and the heights of
Machine Guns Shoot from Towers.
"In Saarburg, where the infantry was
still fighting, the remnants of the
enemy were firing on them from houses
and V towers with machine guns. As
darkness -came the enemy attempted a
counter attack against the left wing of
the first infantry division between
Saarburg and Buhl, but was repulsed.
The battle ceased during the night.
"The extent of the victory became
clear the next day, when one could es
timate the losses of the French, the
great number of captives and of guns
taken, 31 in alL Nearly all these guns
had been demolished by the Bavarian
artillery and their gunners had been
either shot or had fled. The Eight
teenth and Thirteenth French Army
Corps had suffered heavily. :
"The loeses of the Bavarian corps
were, like their victory, great. Losses
up to 25 per cent and even to 50 per
cent were borne by the troops without
wavering. The conduct of the troops
was beyond all praise."

. "We are all courageous now and
ready to strike for the defense of our
Fatherland, but we cannot tell how
soon a terrible attack will come from
the Germans," reads the letter. "Who
would have thought Belgium would
come to this? It is terrible to behold
now, and yet we do not wonder so
much, when we learn that under the
houses of the' Germans who fled from
Belgium when the war broke out we
found weapons of war and dynamite."
The foreboding part of the letter was
the foresight taken by Mr. Lombaert's

vaders and devastated.

from whom she has been unable to get
definite word for weeks. ' She has sev

have been among the first to go to the

days she believes mean that many who
lived on the outskirts of the city of
Antwerp have been killed or wounded.
