GETTING NEW: OFFICES READY.
A force of carpenters was at work on
the Msyo building until a- late hour-last
niyht, getting it in readiness.;- for its now
tenants. Although the clerical corps of
tho Chesapeake and Ohio bore had a
holiday yt-stt-rday. they will all be at
work to-day, orders having- been issued
lor them to report fur duty this morning.
The damage to the Chesapeake and
Ohio records is very much loss than was
at first expected. There- -was a large
.amount of stationery burned. Among
the articles left in the dispatchers-room
when they had to rush out was a-gold
; headed cane, which the operators intend
ed' presenting, to Superintendent Walker
yesterday, and a diamond ring belonging
to Dispatcher P.ibb.
The Main street and Forest Hill lines
had only started their -.cars when they
had to stop, the current being cut off
by order of Superintendont Thompson,
who foared that the firemen would be
killed by coming in contact with live
wires broken by reason of the -loads of
ice upon them! It was 10 o'clock before
a new circuit, was made, and tho cars
were started to running as usual.
FIREMEN" 'DID FINE WORK;
The officials of the Chesapeake and
Ohio, as well as the crowd of. spectators,
were unanimous yesterday in their 'praise
of the plucky and; intelligent work of the
firemen. It. could not have boon ex
celled. They: were utterly careless of
danger and cold. Firemen Wade and
CarltO'h were almost suffocated .while at
work on tho fourth floor, but Chief Shaw
rushed in through the smoke and dragged
them into the i'fesh air. They quickly
revived and wont to work again.
Ueutonnnt Shaw, A. P. Carlton, and
George Mackio. of No. 7 Company, were
temporarily overcome by the smoke in
the, building-, but when they recovered,
rushed back to work. E.. Mercer Hull
the engineer of Company No. 1. was
taken very ill while at his post, : and had
to be given medical aid. As soon as he
was bettor he. returned to his post.
II I3 'SAVED THE ICNGINE.
The coolness of Mr. David Gurtnrigh t,
a substitute on Company No. '1. averted
a bad accident at Seventh; and I'ain
stroets after the tire. The horses had
been .brought un to be .attached to the
engine, when it began slipping down
Seventh" street; The men standing by
tried, to stop it by throwing blocks .of
wood in front of the wheels. The mo
mentum was too groat, however, and the
big engine kept going, gathering ..speou
„Ivory foot. Tho men had to got out of
the way and let her go. It. looked as
though nothing would save it from being
hurled into the. canal at the foot of the
street. Garthright, however, saw: what
was to bo dono. and did it. He. sprang

It was stnf.Ml last riljrht in the most
authoritative way "that Airs. T. P. Vagor,
who came to this city from Rockingham
county 'nearly a month ago and then dis
appoared. had been Joc-a ted in Canada.
. The statement was made by a gentle
man from a county adjoining Rocking
ham upon what he ■ boliovos to be accu
rato information. He stated that though
the fact had not been -publicly! announced.
it. was-di.-linit.oLy "known that the missing
woman was in a Canadian city.
Tho 'disappearance of Mrs. Yager has
attracted much attention. Sho left home
early iii December to come to this pity
for medical treatment. Sho tolographetl
her -husband upon lier arrival here that
she was getting along quite well, and
wrote him the next day a very cheerful,
bright. letter. That was the last he heard
fru'm; or of. her, unless it bo true that he
has now learned that<, she is across the
bp'rdor. After .waiting anxiously for ten
dnys. and ascertaining by telegraphic "cor
respondence that, his' wife had not gone
to tho boafding T house at which he oxpect
ed her; to st:iy, -nor seen -VDr. Johnson,
under whose treatment sho was to place
herself,' Mr. Yager and his'father-in-law.
Dr. Webb, oaine tv Richmond to: try ami
Jliid her. Failing to find any' clue what
ever here, they 'visited Washington and
Baltimore in -prosecution of" their search.
Still they were unsuccessful.'
■ Learning that a woman had boon soon
at Reservoir lake acting' 'rather strange
ly, the husband and father returned .to
Richmond, and the water was turned o"t
of tho lake, but the body was not found.
Then Mr. Yagordotermined [to place the
case in the hands of .-Detective W. G--
Baldwin, of RO'ariplte, who. among other
things, issued circulars, giving the pic
ture and a description of Mrs. Yager.
The gentleman ■from whom tho Dispatch
heard, that Mrs. Yager was believed to be
in Canada said it was not thought that
her husband wouUl" 'try-tb h;£\ r e iior
brought back.
The. Baldwin circular describes Mrs.
Yager as about '.85- years: old; weight,
about 107 pounds; height, about 5 feet T>
inches; complexion, dark; eyes; very dark
and sparkling; hair-black, worn curled
over? forehead; ngu're. medium, but 'waist
rather largo: walks up and down steps
with difficulty ;;.'hahds' medium size, but
feet- rather small; wears about No. 1 l-ll
shoe; wore plain .gold ring 011 third lin
ger, loft hand, with initials T. P. Y. to
6. J. W.; also, .wore King's 'Daughters'
silver, bridge. Mrs. Yager had one pecu
liarity that can be- easily noticed. From
her childhood she would twirl a small
button between the thumb mid forefinger
of th«j right hand. This sho does at all
times, usually using a small white but
ton. She would also often rub the button
across her lips.

Another dispatch from Dover Farm,
dated January Ist, says:
; "The Colonial troops, v/ho have, been
longing to.be allowed to men the Boers,
have- at last ; been given an opportunity
to do so, and have scored a brilliant suc
cess. The raid conducted by Colonel Pil

Uiat tho 'movoments of the troops v/ere
imrnediiiteiy commtinioatod to the Boers
by natives:- In order to prevent this,
Colonel Pilcher, in making his forced
nmrcli from Belmont, loft a British

structions not to allow the .- natives t.i
leave their lints, tho patrols calling the
names of the natives hourly, hi order to

cloar, whereupon Major De. Kougoinont
ordered the guns to advance at a. trot.
They arrived within 500 yards of the
laager, unlimbered, and planted five
'shells in as many minutes within the
laager. Immediately the enemy could be
seen streaming over the kopje. They
wore completely surprised, but quickly
opened a well-directed fire.
"A ropresentative of the Associated
Press had the privilege of carrying an
order to the Toronto company, which
sent them at double-quick into- action.
The order was received with great satis
faction: The company rushed forward
until within '-1.000 yards of: The enemy's
position, when it opened a hot fire iipon
tho kopje, and completely subdued the
Boer lire. The . -Briiinh artillery shelled
tho position with wonderful accuracy,
