ST. LOUIS, October 2 -A posse last
Friday night captured Joe Lodore, a

Anderson on tho preceding night went
to J. n. Gambrlll'a house at St. Ann's,
Miss., tied Gambrlll'a wife and four chil

on them, poured oil on tho pilo, cremated
tho family and robbed them.
Lelloro was burned at the stake, An
derson was caught and partially burned,
but tho fire was extinguished before lui
was dead, becauso information which
may clear him was obtained.
Farly last evening Lelloro was captured
several miles from tho scene of the mur

the crime, but finally confessed that he,
Rob Smith and Anderson .Smith, two
other nogroos, had done tho work.
Ho hoped for no mercy and told with
brutal frankness all details of the crime.

Tho British infantry formed for an at

of a hill. Tho Devonsbircs were on tho

they met with a t?rrido infantry and ar

THC GLENCOE FIGHT.
Tho War Botwoon tho British and Boors is
Tlio result of tho battlo at Gloncoo
must go far toward convincing tho Boors
of tho utter hopelessness of thoir war
(Jloncoo is In uppor Natal, near Dun- j
doo, and at that point tho British hud
concentrated most of tho forces thoy had
in Natal. Thoy wore so inferior in num
bers to tho Boor troops, whioh sonio days
ago bogan thoir march into British terri
tory, that much apprehension for their
safety was Jolt at tho British war ofllco.
Tho Boors, confident of thoir ability to
indict a severo blow upon this division
of tho British army boforo reinforce
ments could reach it, pressed forward
and made their attack under most favor
able circumstances. Thoy occupied a
hill within easy rango of tho British
camp and massed upon it about twico as
many mon as woro in tho army winch
lay below them, an apparently easy mark.
Ever since tho fight at Majuba Hill tho
Boors have boon possessed with tho idea
that tiley are man to man moro than a
match for tho British and with twico aB
groat a forco as tho enemy thoy had no
doubt that a great victory would bo
theirs at Gloncoo.
Such would have boon tho result if tho
British bad nioroly stood their ground
and taken tho Boor Uro, But thoy
adopted a very di (forent sort of tactics.
As soon as tho Boers came within roaoh
thoy charged upon thom with desporato
valor. Thoir onset was so determined
and tho work of their artillery so sciou
tiflo ami effeotivo that tho Boors could
not resist tho assault. They fought
bravely, as thoy always do, but their
superiority in numbers was moro than
offset by tho skill and discipline of tho
British, and thoy were drivon from their
vantage ground with sovere loss of men
Tlio British lost heavily also, but
gained a victory which could have been
achieved only by high class soldiery di
rected by bravo and efficient officers.
Tho record niado by tho British offioors
in this battle was truly remarkable. Wo
doubt if so largo a number of officers
in proportion to the number of men they
commanded were over before killed in
hattie when the lighting was, out of 200
dead and wounded oil tho British side,
no less than iii were officors. This list
includes three colonels and four majors.

division, was wounded, it is behoved,

cers and 15 men, the King's Kittes ll ofll

tho numbor of killed alone tho dispro
portion noted is still more remarkable,
tho returns showing ll oflicers to havo
boen shot dead, against 20 of the rank
lt will bo soon that tho Irish troops
fought heroically. They lost, one-third
of tho offioors ami nearly one-half of tho
mon who wore killed and woundod undor
tho British flag.
All tho British troops fought with
great courage, but their officors made a
record which proves that they throw
themsolvos into tho thickest of iii tight.
T o unoxpoctcd rush of a smallor loree
upon them in thoir vory strong position
had a demoralizing offoct upon tho
lloors and had much to do with thoir
utter rout, it would appear that tho
