NYMPHS IN "BACK TO NATURE" DANCES 4**tr«fzZy\ DEAD MAN'S HILL Is Scene of Awful Carnage As Germans Make Effort to Cain Lost Ground. HAND TO HAND Is Combat at Many Points and Knives Are the Weapons Used. By I'nited Press. Paris, May 24.—Ten thousand men have gone down to slaughter in what is rapidly becoming the bloodiest engagement of the three months' battle of Verdun. From Dead Man's hill eastward to the ruins of Fotr Doua-.imont, the most savage struggle in any theater of war in the pastj, two months is being waged. The Germans last night rolled 80,000 men np against the French works on Dead Man's hill, while two German lirigades time and again rushed the French defenders of Douaumont. The ficliting in the ruins of the fort attained the greatest violence yesterday. The Germans bathed the French positions ln a steady drum fire. From behind great clouds of dust thrown up by shells the grey columns of Germans emerged on a mad run for the French works. While French machine guns sprayed the advancing lines the charging Germans reached the western and northwestern edges of Douaumont fort and came to grips with the French defenders. Groups of men struggled at such close quarters that bayonets and grenades became useless and resort was had to knives. The opposing artillery meanwhile sent shells shrieking over the fort, searching out enemy reserves. Throughout yesterday afternoon German columns attacked repeatedly on both sides of the fort from Caillette wood and from the ravine north of Thiaumont farm. At sundown last night the situation was virtually unchanged, the French main taining themselves in those portions of the position taken Monday.
