The Russians penetrated about SO miles ;uid then rapidly withdrew, fighting continuously with detach- ments of gendarmes. Correspondents explain the panic oi the populace hy saying that a' dozen Cossacks are sufficient to frighten and put to flight women and children.

Moreover. they block the roads, hampering mil- itary transport and holding uji sup- plies. Refugees are entirely without food. Cuttle which they drove with them also have nothing to eat, owing to sparse vegetation in the mountains. Journalists who have seen tlie ex- odus .in the Bnkowina region say that only the Servian night into Mon- tenegro and Albania can he compared with it. Everywhere are to be seen bodies of pi-rsons who diet! from ox- haustton and often besides them the carcasses of horses.
