METKUEN'S WOUKDED CHARGER. Surgeon C Marsh Beadneil, R.N., eldest son of Major C E Beadneil, Nantyrebeg, Llanidloes, with Lord Metbuen's force, in a description of the battle of Modder, published by the British Medical Journal, relates the following exciting incident in connection with the wounding of Lord Mefhuen — Our chief was put out of action very earlv in the day by a bullet wound. I learnt this in a curious manner. On tho left of our line I saw a horse bolting riderless; it was evidently an Officer'•; charger, as there was a sword, etc., attached to the l s-'tit a bugler to catch the horse, and found it had a Mauser bullet wound through the near foreleg, ar.d there was blood on the bridle, stirrup, and saddle. Drawing the sword one read: Methuen from Chapman.' Fears at once arose that the General was wounded, and Wj, alas, he was, though luckily the wound was not serious.
