The Ger man war office asserts that there has been no further Infantry fighting of Importance at Verdun, but declares that the French artillery is keeping up a heavy fire, especially near Dou aumont. Evacuation of trenches cap tured from the French near the forest of Thlonvllle in Lorraine is admitted by the Germano. The only progress marie by the Ger rnans was during the first two days of the second attack.
