THE MODDER RIVER RECON- NAISSANCE. SPLENDID ARTILLERY WORK. THE BRILLIANT DEFENCE OF LADYSMITH. MODDER RIVER, Thursday. During the demonstration which was made on Tuesday, a Boer laager was discovered. Accord- ingly a small column, consisting of Mounted Infantry and Artillery and three battalions of Infantry under Lord Methuen himself, yesterday made a reconnaissance iu the direction of the laager, which was found to have been removed during the uight. The infantry were drawn from the Highland and 9th Brigades. Our artillery made splendid practice. The Highlanders advancing up the river tired volleys into the bush, effectually clearing it. The enemy returned our fire briskly, but without effect. The object of the reconnais- sance was most successfully attained. During the afternoon a lyddite shell from one of our guns fired the brushwood on a kopje occupied by the enemy. The fire blazed merrily until rhe evening, when the Boers extinguished it under cove" of daikness. There was heavy shelling by out big guns this morning, the lyddite shattering the face of the enemy's position. Oitr naval men have a profound admiration for one of the enemy's gunners, who can plainly be seen sitting out in the open in his shirt sleeves calmly takiug observations of our .position. He gets back to cover as soon as he sees the smoke of our guns. The Riet River is in flood.
