GERMAN ASSAULTS ON FRENCH

being Belfort. Between these two
joints lies the stretch of frontier on
which Germany touches France.
Ail along the Verdun front the Ger-
mans are hurling their m n against
the French lines without resard to sac-
rifices, Paris declares, the fighting be-
ing particularly desperate in the re-
gion of Beaumont, almost directly
north of Verdun.
The fighting has been of a degree of
Intensity virtually unparalleled in the
war. Especially Is tais true of the
artillery works, the teutons having
brought up many massive 12-incb and
li-inch guns from the Serbian and
Russian campaigns, and blasted out
the French positions with a pitiless
bombardment of high explosive shells
of these large calibres.
The rain of shell fire In the Septem-
ber offensive of the allies was at the
time without precedent, but corres-
pondents near the wont declare that
it was feeble in comparison with the
deluge of projectiles which at present
is being poured upon the French
trenches and fortifications from the
massed batteries of the Germans.
Champneuville, to ttie west, ami the
fortified works cf Haraamount to the
east of Fort Douaumont, have been
captured by the Germans. Berlin also
claims to have captured the Cote de

London —Five determined attempts
made by French troops to recapture
from the Germans Fort Douaumont,1
one of the outlying Verdun fortresses,1
were repulsed with sanguinary losses,
according to statements is«ued by Get-
man headquarters staff. German
troops, it was asserted, had stormed
the fortified works of Hardamount as
well as the town of Champeneuville
and the Co'e De Talou The number
of unwounded Frenchmen taken pris-
oners. it was added, totaled 15.000.

SCENES OF HORROR
Paris.—Military critics here express the opinion that the German*
who at the beginning of the battle around Verdun numbered prob-
ably 500,000, now exceed 750,000.

"Their battalions advanced in serried masses by files of twenty.
The shrapnel from our 75 millimeter guns and the projectiles from
our heavy artillery fell among then and you could see the great gaps
as if a mower had passed with a scythe. Then high expiosive shells
burst and limbs shct in the air. We were so close that pieces of

ing shells rrade it clear as day, giv.rig the battlefield the aspect of a
"Then our machine guns placed in batteries every five yards, be-
gan to play and we saw the dead ii groups upright while there was
no room to fall. When we passed between the heavy guns at Douau-
mont and Oamloup, the air pleasure, produced by the continuous
discharges, was so terrific that blood rushed from o ir ears and our
lungs almost ceased work." •

Stop* Itching Sca'p.
Thin, brittle, colorless and scraggy
hair is mute evidence of a neglected
scalp; of dandruff—that awful scurf.
There is nothing so destructive to
the hair as dandruff. It robs the hair
of its luster, its strength and Its very
life; eventually producing a feverish-
ness and Itching of the scalp, which
if not remedied causes the hair roots
to shrink, loosen and die—then the
hair falls out fast. A little Danderln*
tonight—now—any time—will surely
save your hair.
Get a 25 cent bottle of Knowlton's
Danderine from any store, and after
the first application your hair will
take on that life, luster and luxuriance
which is so beautiful. It will become
wavy and fluffy and have the appear-
ance of abundance; an incomparabla
gloss and softness, but what - will
please you most will be after Just a
few weeks' use, when you will actual-
ly see a lot of fine, downy hair—new
hair—growing ail over the scalp. AdT.
