' re FRENCH REPULSE Recent German Gains Stir Them Up to Realization of Situation, PARIS IS NOT FEELING ANXIOUS THOUGH On the East Side the Austrians Are Crowding the Italians Forward. (By United Press) Paris, Miay 24 The French td pulsed violent attacks northwest of Verdun, and made gains on the east bank, it is announced. They recap tured the trench near Thiaumont with a smashing grenade attack. The Ger mans continued a heavy fire east of the Meuse, especially around Dead man's Hill, and Avocourt. Infantry attacks were halted, however. A heavy bombardment there this morn ing it is believed is preliminary to further assults today. The German gains on both banks of the Meuse aroused the French sense to the seriousness of the Ver dun situation. No anxiety is felt, how ever. Even should the Germans cap ture Verdun it would not alarm Paris. It is impossible to tabulate the losses until the artillery ceases. Possibly the 'casualties will never be known. Vienna, May 26.

' .. 1 Bumping a car with a tank of crude oil too severely last evening, in the yard of the Southern Pacific, caused a loss of 12,400 gallons of oil.

The car was standing on the fourth track, nearly opposite the de pot. It wag hurritf'soutrrtertne"end of the switch and thence back to the oil tank, a stream of oil covering the track as it went along, a long black line of the stuff.. At the tank the last of the 12,400 gallons oozed out, form ing a considerably of a lake, and all along the stick stuff made a mess of things. A crew of men was sent to scraping it up, carting it off and cov ering the tracks with new sand. It looked like a big loss, but crude oil is cheap, less than a dollar a barrel, two or two and a half cents a gallon, so the damage by loss of oil is only $200 or $300. - GLOBE THEATRE HAS GOOD PICTURES AND ACTS Tonight's offering at the Globe the atre is a superb presentation of . the five part Pathe feature, "The House of Fear," with Jeanne Eagles, Shel don.
