POSITION ALLIES UNCHANGED.
Paris, October 7. Official—The characteristics of the situation are unchanged. On the left wing northward ofj the Aisne the action is increasingly violent. There is comparative calm in tbe centre. Some ground bas been gained on the northern heights of the Meuse.
Though tbe Germans retreated from Eheims their heavy guns are still able to throw shells into tbe north eastern suburbs. Several such Bhells bave done much damage to residences. Aeroplanes have also dropped bombs in an endeavour to destroy the railway station. One killed fourteen people. On the slopes about the town the bodies of dead soldiers are being burnt, and an awful smell of burning flesh pervades the town. GENERAL FRENCH.
