General Robert«* Report*
London, March 10.—Following is
the text of Lord Roberts’ dispatch, re-
v lived by the war office today:
"Poplar Grove, March 10.—Two
irigades of cavalry, with horse artillery
•nd Kelly-Kenny’s division, marched
:oday 10 miles eastward.
The Boers
were taken by surprise yesterday.
They moved off so hurriedly that they
left cooked dinners behind them. We
captured a Krupp gun and several tents
and wagons.
The total casualties
Killed, Lieutenants Keswick
and Frieslick; wounded, Lieutenants
Hailey, of the Twelfth Lancers, and
Decrispigne, of the Second Life Guards,
both severely, and Lieutenant Smith, o'
the Shropsliires, who is believed to
have been picked up by Boer ambu­
lance. Two men were killed, 46 wound­
ed, and one man is missing.
“Gatacre re|s>rts he intends occupy­
ing Burgersdorp today. Repairs to the
Tailroads toward both Stormberg and
Leyusberg are being pushed. Clem­
ents now occupies Nerval's Point, on
the south bank of the Orange river.
The bridge was blown up March 6, and

the river, but not, it is believed, in
any great strength.”

Jackson, Miss., March 10.—An offi­

Icard of supervisors reveals an appall­
ing state of affairs in the Jonesville
neighterhood, in the southern part of
the county. The community is literal­
ly honeycombed with smallpox of the
most virulent foim, and during the past
six weeks nearly 100 deaths have oc­
curred. On some days the death rate
lias been so large that it was imiossi-
ble to secure coffins, and rude caskets
were made from rails. Whole families
were wiped out of existence and of sev­
eral large families only one or two chil­
dren are left.
Many of the patients who are now in
a critical condition are without medi­
cal attention, and are dying at the rate
■of from three to five a day. The death
rate exceeds 75 per ceent, and the en­
tire lower portion of the county is de­
moralized. The board of supervisors
will make an effort to check further
spread. Blot In Bordonnz.
Bordeaux, March 10.—Late yester­
day evening students and others issuing
from a pro-Boer meeting marched to
the British consulate, battered down
the doors, shattered the windows with
stones, and then proceeded to the con­
sul’s private residence, where they in­
dulged in similar demonstrations. The
jsilice disjiersed the mob and arrested
several leaders.
The prefect of the
Gironde, the mayor of Bordeaux and
the commissary of police called on the
consul today and expressed regret at
the occurrence.

New York, March 10.—The National
Baseball League for the season of 1900
will have an eight-club circuit. This
announcement was made at the Fifth
Avenue hotel at 11:30 o’clock tonight,
when the league meeting adjourned.
A verbal agreement was reached to­
night, and tomorrow the agreement
will be formally executed. The retiring

Mafeking, Feb. 21.—What may be
typhoid fever has broken out in the
womens’ laager, and dysentery, due to
the absence of vegetables, is rife among
the garrison. We are thrown upon
our own resources. Such luxuries as
we had are exhausted, or have been
commandeered for the hospitals, which
are filled to overflowing.
The chil­
dren’s graveyard, close to the women’s
laager, grows weekly as the young lives
are cut short prematurely by shells and
fever. We look with hope deferred for
The cheerfulness which was charact­
eristic of the early days of the siege has
almost deserted us, the men preferring
to remain at their posts, rather than
move about and work up an appetite,
which cannot be satisfied. The natives
are in the worst plight.
Those who
are unable to obtain work are allowed a
small handful of meat daily. Many,
braving the danger, wander about the
town with gaunt and huiigiy faces in
search of work which eutitles them to
an extra ration of meat. If they find
work they are generally too weak to
jierform it.
From their advance posts the Boers
rake the streets and the market square.
It is impossible to dodge their bullets.
We have taken remarkable precaution,
however, and the casualties, though
heaVy, are not what they might have
been with less able men at the head of
