View of Kuruman, which was taken by the Boers on the 1st January 1900

According to a telegram on Monday, news has been received at Pretoria of the surrender of Kuruman, the small town south-west of Vryburg, which has been pluckily holding the Boers at bay ever since the investment of Kimberley. The town was help by a force of 120 police, all of whom are prisoners, together with 12 officers.
