Thr licimmi high commiind. having

ish front in Flaudcra and separatlpg
'lift l'-rltiih and French armies, has
'essayed a .-stroke against the Americana
, iiiTil the French northwest of Toul
| ?' ud here ulso Teuton strategy sccm
| ingly has failed utterly to bring- its
' Hans to fruition.
Although thfi Germany attacked In
waves with greatly superior numbers or
j men. the Americans and Frenchmen
have helrl ;i|l their positions and In
flated heavy losses on the enemy.
What gains were made in the initial
onslaughts have been entirely re
trieved. and Sunday night saw the
American and French lines restored.
1 he latest Berlin official communica
tion asserts that in the drive 1S3 Amer
ican prisoners and twenty-live machine
guns were captured by the Germans,
who cut the.:- way for about a mile and
a. quarter into the American lines a:
Seicheprey. There has been no con
'lnnation of this statement, or of the
added claim that the Americans sus
tained heavy casualties.
It seems evident, however, that the
tight was a bitter one. and that it was
the ambition of the specially trained
Germans to crush the Americans.
I'.verything the enemy had in sJ.ock
was brought Into play in the lighting,
which lasted from Saturday well into
Mind a y. Shells of all oa libers, includ
ing sa:; missiles, were used prodlgj
? urly, but. the Americans, notwithstand
ing thla cannonading and the greatly
[ superior infantry forces arrayed against
t hem. fought tenaciously and gave
..?round by mehes, and then only when
tley had exacted a tremendous pay
i inent for it in German killed or
founded.

Altlsough the enemy was able to
'reach the shell-torn village of Seiche
prey. th ? Americans ralKed and in
bloody h-ind-to-hand fighting reversed
the situation and regained th<* town,
la kow if-c, all the terrain which the
French in this region were forced t->
giv up temporarily now ha: been re
taken. The German oflieia! communica
tion, in what seemingly is a half
hearted admission that, the attack was
repulsed and that the Gcrmaua lost
j what they had gained, says the Ger
| mans. "aft^r the destruction of enemy
. works, returned to tneir lines of dep..r
I ture."
Just what the German, are planning
for the future 011 the long line north
ward from I.a Bassec to Vprcs, where
| everywhere they have met, during
the. last week, with a stone wall of
1 resistance, has nc>i yet become ap
parent. Nowhere have they thrown
down the gauntlet and offered battle
against the stanch line that is facing
then;. They have, however, on nume
rous sectors carried out violent born
' hardments. but in these they have been
answered shot for shot. The only fight
ing in which the man of either side
left their trenches was near Itobecq,
northwest of i.a Basscc. whero Field
.Marshal llaig's men threw out the
enemy from scvoial advanced posi
tions.
1 Evidences of the losses the Germans
have sustained in the new offensive
daily are becoming mope apparent. In
addition to the reports of the nume
rous dead which strew the battle llelds.
advices coming through Holland ,?re to
the eff< ct that hospitals, monasteries,
