The following is an account of the Russian retreat: The road from Poreden, Bulganeni was cumbered with broken and retreating troops wholly destitute of order, officers without sol- diers, soldiers without officers, without cohesion and mostly without arms. At the narrow bridge near Bulgareni, there was a wild confusion and complete block. Tumbrils, ambulance wagons, provision wagons, officers' coaches led horses and carts filled with wounded. There had been wounded all along the road, but the bulk of the wounded began a little way beyond Bulgareni, and extended in an unbroken line for seven miles along the road to Sistora. A staff officer estimates the whole force lost between 6,000 and 7,000. The Czar is overwhelmed with grief .at the Russian disasters. 134 WIST W4T11 ST., Will Be Found GREAT BARGAINS in all departments of DRY GOODS. Don't fail to call and see.
