our artillery, which had been beautifully

themselves. They soon compelled the
enemy to retire. Our gun continued to
play on Smith' hill, where beautiful
practice wa made.

hussars deployed on the left flank. Soon
the cannonading ceased, and, after five

may be put dowu as the first battle of

great vigor. At 7 :m a message arrived

THE W. C. T. U.
Headquarters to Be in Late Home of

Seattle, Wash., Oct. 21. In the con
sideration of three important amend
ments to the constitution of the organiza
tion, and in celebrating the silver jubilee
of the society, the delegates to the W.
C. T. U. convention passed the second
day of the session. Two or three amend
ments were adopted. One of these
removes tbe headquarters of the national
organization from Chicago, where it ha
been located for many year, to Evanston,
111., at Rest cottage, the late home of
Mis France Willard. Tha adoption of
thi amendment wa had after a long
and at time rather heated debate, in
which much feeling wa manifested.
In tbe discussion of this proposition
the national officers, without exception,
supported tbe amendment. It developed
tbat among tbe officers and delegates
there wa a strong desire to have tbe
permanent headquarters of the organiza
tion at the place hallowed to them by
tbe long residence o' Miss Willard, and
by the associations growing out of her
occupancy of her room in Rest cottage.
Tbe opposition to the movement, which
came from delegates from various part
tbe country, was beaten down under
argument founded npon the sentiment
refurred to. When the vote was taken,
shortlr after noon, it stood 174 for the
amendment and twenty-two against.

Great Display of Valor.
London, Oct. '.'.--The British victor
ies in atal following each other in
quick succession, though accompanied
by heavy losses on the tnle of the victors
which bear striking testimony to tbe
valor of tbe vanquished Boers. They
appear to have fallen victims to the
very plan which they counted on to
drive the British into the sea.
They have been beaten in detail by
connterstrokes, carefully considered and
brilliantly carried out, in the face of
courageous opposition, which ha done
much to Increase British respect for the
burghers, whose splendid valor and de
termination, it is universally admitted,
reached the highest level.

Three Hundred Boers Killed.
Gi.encoe Camp, Oct. 22. (Delayed in
transmission), 12 :20 p. m. The attack
made by Boer forces, nnder General Lu
cas Meyers, on the British position Sat
urday, enabled the British force to
score another signal success. The Boer
column was driven pell-me'l over the
plains, losing over three hnn.lred killed
and wounded. In addition, the British
captured several hundred horse and
made many prisoners, who are btlng
well cared for.
The Boer hospital haa been taken un
der the wing of the British hospital
corps, as the Boers had inlr a single
doctor with a primitive etaff, who waa
quite unable to cope with the wounded.
As it ha been mining all night long,
and the weather is heavy and misty, it
is hardly expected the Hoers will make
another attack today.

Whitmore and hi brother-in-Uw, a
man named Ornduff, were hunting, A

charged and the load of shot struck
Whitmore in the back, completely shat

kinds of liniment and two and a half
gallons of whiskey in bathing it, but
nothing gave any relief until be began
