Tliough yesterday's fighting w.ts of the severest nature, tliere has been little change on the l-'rench front where the-Germans liave been concentrating their greatest efforts. In the vicinity of Mery the fighting has been heaviest but has gone to the artvun-tage of the Fronth who retained valuable gun positions s�eepin!i Ger-niau supply roads.
