Two companies f mounted Infantry and a detachment I .f lancpra were rent to nold Thomas' j f irm. Their pickets prevented the Bo-! ers frnm advancing. The Boers fired i cannm and the British artillery arrlv- ! 1 on the seen and tilenced the Users' I tire. At 2 o'clock In the morning the 1 C.tiarda Brigade moved steadily for ward to a hill a few mile east of Bel mont ftatJon. The Soots and Grena- ; 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 ward in extended order, and the Bcer3 i muted n terrible cross lire from the j Mirroundin hllh. The Coldstreams, j nipjMirted by tin Scots Grenadiers, Northumberland and Northarnutons, j htorni'd the second position In the face ; tif x constant nud effective Boer fire. 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 supported ly the artillery, and the Bo ers, unable to withstand tho death licalirg volley.-', retired, and were agau. forced to abandon some minor posi tions. The Brltl-.h cavalry charged the Boers and pursued them for rive miles. Possession was taken of thu Hoer laagrr, and the Boer stores were destroyed. A special dispatch received at Lon don from Belmont. ays that General Methuen's farces numbered 7,000 men snd that of the Boers 5.000 mm. The engagement was really a series of bat tles, during which the Boers were con ftatitlv carrying oif their deod an.l wounded. The War Office at linden has Indued the following advices from Tape Town: "General Mcthucn further reports that the wounded are doing well. There re over 50 including a Ger man commandant and six field cornets. Nineteen of these prisoners are wound ed. We ore unable to estimate the Boer loes. The prisoners say that Thursday's Attack was a surprise, and that Is is the only beating they have had. A large amount of correspond ence has been secured. The Reservists are doing well.- Colonel Pole-Carcw replaces Featlierstonhaugli in com mand of the Ninth Brigade." The Boors hoisted a white flag over their second position, whereupon Lieu tenant Willoughby. of the Coldstream Guards, stood up and was immediate ly shot down. The Boers twice repeat ed the same tactics. The Ixmdon Daily Mail publishes the following dispatch from Belmont, describing the battle: "The Boers held a position which British troops would have held almost against any force. The British victory is com plete. My estimate of the Boer los3 is S0O killed and 150 wounded. Mr. Knight, correspondent of the London Morning Tost, was wounded. The Bo er prisoners are ignorant, dirty and wretched. They say that half their comman. tired of thenar, will refuse further service. $00,000 Mill For Fitzgerald, Ga. Fitzgerald, Ga., Special.

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 11 Z L Plil"11!!!.!!!!'1!
