gained entrance to a trench recently
seised by French.
When today's official communique
was issued the conflict was growing
more terrific every minute, following
on of the bloodiest nights in th his
tory of Europe.
Amid th ruins of Douamont German
detachments were still offering heroic
resistance. With bayonet hand gren
ades, trench mines and clubbed mus
kets, soldiers fought Individually there,
refusing to retreat, and dying wher
they crouched. In the meantime th
French engineers were busy strength
ening their hard won gains, expecting
violent counter attacks.
Spectacular Caarjr Mad.
One of the most spectacular episode
of th fighting occurred on the west
bank of the Meuse, where, shielded by
a densescloud of poison gas, behind a
screen of liquid fire, the Germans ad
vanced by a brilliant charge and en
tered a French trench. Hundreds of
Frenchmen wearing gas masks and
clothing to protect them against th
flames, lurked in their bombproof un
til the Germans swarmed in. Then they
dashed out in the midst of the German
cheers, killed many enemies and eject
ed all survivors from th works.
Charge oa 304 Broken Up.
East of hill 304 German bugles
sounded a charge in force and a wedge
shaped column of men ran toward the
French, intending to divide their ranks
and outflank one detachment holding
an Important position. Word of thw
attempt was immediately teiepnonea
to the massed batteries of "seventy
fives" in the rear and a well-directed
curtain of fire dropped into the front
rank of the Teutons, obliterating It and
sending the remainder of the column
back in confusion.

BUT LACKS RESULTS,
SAYS BERLIN REPORT
Berlin, May 18. (L N. S.) Intense
but lacking in deckilve results, light
ing along the Meuse continues unabat

Lman general staff say. The French
are supplementing tneir aexensive op
erations with vigorous counter-attacks,
the greatest violence being evident on
the right bank, between a point south
ward of Thiaumont farm, and Caillette
The text of the statement follows:
"On the Meuse the fighting is es
pecially active because of the enemy's
efforts at counter attacks. On the
left bank the Germans captured a
French blockhouse south of Camard
forest. French attacks east of hill
304 and on the south elope of Le Mort
