Tlio official statement follows: "It is ascertained at least 90 bombs were dropped by enemy airships during tlie raid of .March 5th and Cth. Uombs appear to have been indiscriminately drotiped over tho rural districts. This may liave been due to the fact that owing to the rough weather the Zeppelins were uncertain aa to their whereabouts and were anxious to rid themselves of their bombs before escaping under cover of the night. "No military damage of any description was caused; the casualties were ontiroly confined to the civil population, and of those previously rejiorted injured one has since died in a village in Lincolnshire, bringing the total killed to thirteen."

P. H. being tho plaintiff. About the time when the real estate boom was at its height, Fabor was connected witli the C'.P.R, department Ol natural resources. At that time lie bought for himself and associates as a private venture tho two lots beside the restaurant on the corner oppos ite the C.P.H. depot, paying therefor tt fancy price.

Berlin, via London, Jfarch 7,-Tho war office announced today that the village of Fresnes, in the Woevre sector, southeast of Verdun, was captured this morning by German forces. Admit Hun Advance Paris, via London, March 7.-Ftir-ther progress has been made by the Germans In the Verdun region to the west of the Meuse. The announcement was made here semi-offlclally today that they had succeeded by means of violent bombardment in pushing along the railroad In the neighborhood of RegnieviUe. War Office Statement Paris, via. Londonr-March 7.-The war offlce announced today that a division of German troops advancing to attack has captured Hill 266. The text of the war offlce announcement reads: In the Argonne district, endeavors on tho part of the enemy at Haute Chevauchfle, to occupy a mine crater, have been repulsed. "Our artillery ha*? continued its bombardment of tho lines of communication of the enemy to the west of the rlv?r,Meu�e. "Favored by an intense bombardment, German troops have been able to advance along the railroad line in-the neighborhood of Regnieville. At the same moment the Germans delivered a ylolent attack against Hill 205. An entire division took part in this manoeuvre. They were successful in taking possession of this hill in spite of heavy losses inflicted .upon them by the Are of our artillery and our machine guns. "Wo are in possession of the village of Bethincourt and Groves to the left of the wood at Des Chorveux. . and tho wood near de Cumlere and the heigiits of Cote de L'Ote. "Artillery fighting continued actively last night to the east of the Meuse In the vicinity oC Bras and Haudlo-mont as well as in the Woevre, in the sector of Fresnes and in the villages located in the foothills." Germans Divert Attacks Paris, March 7.-^Foiled in their attempts to carrj' Douamont plateau, the Germans are now turning their attention to other parts of the Une, and are driving at French poBltions west of the Meuse, while their' artillery keeps the French tousy elsewhere and infantry has been making attacks In the Woevre sector In the vicinity of Fresnes, As the first r(B-sult of their drive to tlie west of the Meuse, tho Germans took the town of Forges and since have advanced further to the south and southeast. The capture of Forges, which was only an advance post and not strongly held, was apparently tho first step In a serious effort to storm the long crest extending from the Meuse to Forges Brook. Fire from the highest points along this crest, Mort Hommo and Oie Hills, took tho OermaiiB iii the rear when they were attacking Douamont by way of Vaolierauville, and was partly responsible for their failure Sunday wlien the violent and persistent bombardment of the German artillery liad little effect upon the lire of the French batteries along the crest. It would be natural then for the Germans, according to their known metlioda, to return to the alternative of trying to storm thu heights.
