PAniS, Feb. 2.
avlntors hurled bombs with
deadly effect in the reRlon southeast of
Verdun, according to word received hore
today. One noncoSnbatant was killed
near Pont-a-Moueton: a little boy was
frightfully maimed at Nancy, whrrc an
explosive missile droppod In a schoolyard,
and a maternity hospital at nemlremont,
15 miles southeast of Eplnal, was slightly
damaged. ,
Nowa of the latest German air raid
reached Paris on the heels of the an
nouncement that German Tnubes had
again successfully bombarded Dunkirk,
raining 60 shells upon the seacoast town
It aroused the most bitter Indignation
here. Paris newspapers 'olced the pop
ular demand that the Allies' aviators
take the aggressive at onco and shell
German cities In retaliation.
The latest German sky raids wore exe
cuted from Metx, At least six Germnn
aviators, with observers, crossed the
French lines near Tont-a-Mousson and
rained bombs upon Nancy, Luncvllle,
Remtrcmont and other towns within a
radius of 75 miles.
Low-hung clouds protected the blrdmeh
as they crossed the French lines In tlie
woods near Pont-a-Mousson. They first
came into view over Pont-a-Mousson ns
they awoorud earthward and began spit
ting explosives Into the streets. No seri
ous damage was dono In the town Itself,
bat In one of the suburbs a 68-year-old
man, who failed to hear the cry, "to the
cellars i" was torn to pieces when a bomb
dropped at his feet.
Sweeping south from Pont-a-Mousson,
Nancy. A rattling rllle fire from the
children, playing In the courtyard, had
filled Indoors. A 9-year-old bpy, lingering

One missile exploded In the narrow
courtyard of a school. A few rrilnutcs be
fore thn recess period had ended and 200
chlldrun, playing in the courtyard had
file Indoors. A 9-year-old boy, lingering
behind for a few moments, was the Ger
man Ttaube's victim. A fragment of the
bomb tore a gaping wound in his leg.
The windows of the school were smashed,
but no other children were Injured.
Lunevllle hod 'been paid frequent visits
by hostile aviators. "When the first mono
plane was sighted rushing down upon the
city from Nancy all residents promptly
took to their cellars. The Germans tossed
several bombs at a large factory, but
their aim was poor and little damage was
done. A crippled engine forced one of the
raiders to descend In an open square at
Lunevllle, where he was taken prisoner
by. French soldiers.
Dispatches from Remiremont said that
only one German aviator visited that
town. One bomb crashed to earth at the
dcor of a maternity hospital, but no dam
age was done.
The squadron of six German aviators
Who paid the latest visit to Dunkirk drop
ped both explosive bombs and flaming
torches according to advices from the sea
coast town. More' then 60 bombs were
dropped with but little damage. Allies'
aviators chased the Germans to the Bel

On Sunday the German concentrated
a great force with artillery in the
region of Sochaczow, BorJImow and
Bollmow (east of Lowlcz In Poland)
and developed nn offensive of great
tenacity which compelled us to retire
to our second line of trenches
Counter attacks by the Hutslans
turned the Oermans out of all tho
trenches they hnd occupied, causing
them colossal tosses. Simultaneously
with the' llorjlmow attack the Oer
mans carried out a series of assaults
along the front from the village of
Goulme to the hamlet of MoghelJ,
these being supported by heavy ar
tillery fire. We repulsed alt these
attacks partly by artillery nnd rifle
fire and pnrtly by the bayonet
Between noon and 2 o clock. Sun

to the activity of their artillery
against our trenches, succeeded In
carrying a part of them, At 2 o'clock

some of the enemy's trenches.
The action referred to In the com

having taken placo along the road
from Bethune to La Bassee was par
ticularly brilliant for our infantry.
The number of troops employed by the
Germans In this fighting seems to have
been at least a battalion. The two
opening attacks were checked by our
fire; the first succeeded in entering one
of our trenches, but a counter attack

up the steel bridge over the St. Croix
In April of 1900 Luko Dillon, who was
then a teller In a savings bank company
In Chestnut street and who was formerly
connected with the old Dime SaWngs
Bank, mysteriously disappeared. This
disappearance followed an explosion which
destroyed Lock No. 21, of 'the Welland
Canal In Canada. The explosion came at
the time when feeling was running high
In Canada over the Boer War. There
was bitter opposition to Canada gvlng
any aid to the mother country, especially
by those Irishmen who were laboring for
home rule.
Detectives at once ascribed the plot and
the explosion to Irish opponents of the
Boer War. At the same time Dillon dls
appeared from his home here, and In
vestigation proved this his financial af
fairs were In good order and his home
life happy, A man who gave the name
of Karl Pullman was Luke Dillon, who
had given a false name to shield his
family. He was hurried into Canada,

Kingston, Ont, to begin a life term.
It was only when he realUed that he
