Tha Goodlow family consisted of father, mother and six children, while there were 6ix pwsous rending in the Smithson home the Husband, wue, three children and a sister of thehus band. No cause could be discovered for the fire, and it is believed to have been of accidental origin. The pine trees surrounding the house caught fire from the flames, added to the de struction and prevented any assistance from reaching the persons in the house. The bodies were found in the rooms where the different members of the family had been accustomed to eleep, thus giving the impression that death had come while the people were sleeping. The families formed part of a colony of emigrants who has settled in the region. They came from Iowa, Good low having been in the neighborhood for several years, while Smithson had only recently reached the locality. Goodlow was hiffhlv esteemed by the other settlers.who looked upon him as a sort of leader in all their movements, but th Hmithsons were little known. The bodies were interred in the little cravevard of the settlement. One of 4li a' nth or hH1at-h anted as minister at the funerals.

The ALUlO 1 vv u mfitit of Mef eking has com rnenced with unknown result, and the Boers have got their Hussar prisoners cnflv in Pretoria.
