liers advanced to within 50 yards of !
the has?, when the Boors poured in a I
athing flr staggering the Cuardj '
momentarily, but quickly recovering, j
fhey returned a deadly hail into the ;
liners. The duel was continued for j
half an hour. When the artillery com- '
wncrd the Boers evacuated their front j
position and the Soots' Guards rushed 't
t be hill with the bayonet and amid !
iusty cheers. '
The Ninth Brigade then moved for- i

The Ninth Brigade then advanced, the
artillery, in the meantime, maintain- ;
ing excellent practice. The British in
fantry never wavered and when u trc
niendous cheer notified them of th
charge, the Boors fled and suceeded in
joining a range of hills In the rear, in
Kpite of the Lancers' Hunk movement.
The infantry again gallantly faced th
tire and the naval brigade came into
action for the first time nt a range ot
1.S00 yards. The infantry was well

engagement was really a series of bat

The Boors hoisted a white flag over
their second position, whereupon Lieu

The Ixmdon Daily Mail publishes
the following dispatch from Belmont,
describing the battle: "The Boers

Fever at State Normal.
After a remarkable health history for ,
seven years, during which time out of
an annual attendance of about four
hundred young ladies there has been
only one death and very little serious
illness, an apparent epidemic of ty
phoid fever broke out at the Normal
and Industrial College at Greensboro.
About three weeks ago the girls began
to have chills, which were followed
with fever. The resident physician
supposed malaria in the system was
ihe cause of the trouble. 'Later there
were symptoms of typhoid fever.
Three deaths have since occurred, and ;
forty-eight young ladies arc sick with
fever. Three or four are seriously ill.
As there Is very little sickness in the
town President Mclvcr and others be
lieved there was some local cause for
the sickness, and experts were put to
work and every part of the building ;
end premises have been inspected. ,
Under the dining room was found a de- !
fective sewer, from which a poisonous j
gaa was emitted. The State board of j
health appointed a committee consist- j
ing of Mr. A. W. Shaffer and Prof. W. i
: y. Massey, cf Raleigh, and Dr. Dodson, i
of Wilson, who made a thorough ex-
. amination of the building and premi- j

N. J., at 8.30 Tuesday morning. At
his bedside were Mrs. Ilobart and his
son. Garrett A. Hobanjr.. together
with Dr. 'William K. Newtoa and his
wife and Private Secretary Evans. Mr.
Hobart's death had been expected for
some hours. The beeinnine of tbo
end came Moa(lay afternoon, when
thcre was a sudden failure of the heart
and from this attack Mr. Hobart nev
er rallied. He had been sick for a
long time and had suffered frequently
from heart failure, and his strength
had been undermined. Gradually the
more apparent and soon after mid
night Monday night Mr. Hobart be
came unconscious. He remained in

at Patterson, and the interment at the
family plot at Cadar Lawn, where the
only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hobart
was buried six years ago. Rev. Mr.
Magee will preach the sermon. The
church can accommodate no more than
800 persons, and as thousands will be
eager to attend the services, it was
suggested they be held ia the armory,
which, will accommodate 10,000 per
sons. It is known.-however, that Mrs
Hobart wishes the funeral to be as
quiet as possible and there is little
likelihood that tho programme wjil
be changed. The miyor and aldermen
of Patterson have suggested that the
body lie in state at the city hall on
Friday, and this suggestion wll prob
ably be carried out.
The pall bearers have been selected,
but their names will be withheld until
after they have been notified aad have
accepted. Nearly all the representa
tives of foreign nations in this coun-
try have sent messages of sympathy
