The 'Daily Mail' Fetrograd correspondent reports: " Under the inspiration of a misleading order from the Kaiser, promising that the war would be ended if Warsaw were taken, the entrapped Germans hurled themselves against the encircling wall of Russian troops with the desperation of maddened wild animals. The carnage was awful. The Germans were obliged to climb over heaps of dead com* rides to reach the Ruwian bayonets. "The Russians fought magnificently, but. were in insufficient numbers. The Germans, avoided a Sedan, but their retreat is perilous owing to the absence of roads.
