IIerole*Dash made by Riepublic's Sol

Paris, April 4.-A vivid description
f the capture by the French of the
summit of -lartmanns-Weilerkopf, a
peak of the Vosges mountains (a few
miles north of Thann), is given in an
oillcial war oflice communication to
day. Tho occupation of the height
was announced March 27. The final
phases of the struggle for, this im

"A small number of soldiers who
reached the summit early in January
and estlblished a Iosition in a small
fort were forced to surrender on ac
count of starvation, notwithstanding
many continued efforts of their con
rades to succor them. All the troops
were now aroused by a spirit of re
venge and wore only too eager for
the attack. During the remander of
January and February siego opera
tions were carried out and on March
5 an assault was made. The Ger
man trenches were subjected to heavy
artillery fire and our men captured
the strongest German block houses
and a portion of tho first line of
trenches. The enemy made four vigor
ous counterattacks but was repulsed
by our forces.
"On March 23 the greatest effort was
made under cover of the tremendous
cross fire from our 'blacc mouths' can
non of all calibre, including many
rapid firers. These could be seen fall
ing and also portions of German bodies
flying high in air. Our infantry made
a heroic charge, pouring like a living
stream into the two lines of trenches
under a wall of fire.
"Violent German counterattacks
were not sulilcient to drive out our
men, who continued to look forward
to the other lines of German fortifica
