In laager at Marai's farm, about 15
miles southeast of Braudpoit, when
word was received that the British
had struck camp at Tbabanchn and
were pruparln to retire on Bloemfon
tein. It was afterward learned that
they had heard of the presence of Gen
eral Olivier east of Thabanchu and
feared an attack from that quarter.
General Do Wet immediately decided
to strike at the retreating column aud
selected the valley in which the Bloem
fonteiu waterworks are situated as
the point of attack. Orders were given
on the same afternoon, Marcn ju, ior
a forced march duriusr the night, and
to take care of themselves. The trans
port train was thrown into wild con
fusion, the animals, maddened by the
sting of the Mauser bullets, reared and
plunged, overturning several wagons,
and the infantry, unable to extricate
themselves from the fire in front and
rear, after a brief resistance surren
dered. The Boers promptly removed
the killed and wounded aniiuala from
the wagons and started the trait back
