troops have been installed on either
side of the line. Rebels in apparent
lv small groups are pressing toward
Juarez from the east and west, but a
movement of Mexicans ■ from the
American side is most feared by offi-
cials. This is evidenced by the ar-
rest of the United States of Colonel
Orozco's father and De la Fuente, his
chief of staff, who was captured at
San Antdnio as he was about to come
here to take charge -of the movement
against Juarez frfom some point in

this morning farmers from remote
sections of the county came to the
court house here, begging County At-
torney Baskin to excuse them from
the jury because they have fixed opin-
ions as to Sneed's guilt or innocence.
To each Baskin replied: "If I were
to excuse you I would have to excuse
every one of the talesmen. We will
put you on the witness stand anyway,
and break down your opinion so that
you may go into the jury box unbls-
ed." Attorneys for the state and de-
fense, ^vho were up most of the night,
showed haggard and pale faces this

Washington, Nov. 14.—The first
sample parcels post map was turned
out by th<- Postoffice Department yes-
terday. It was for the Washington
unit. There will be a separate map
for each unit, requiring some 6t),000
maps for the whole country. There
are not names of cities on the map,
but the entire map is blocked out in
squares, each square being half a de-
gree of latitude by half a degree of
longitude. Each square is numbered.
In addition to a map,.each postmaster
will get a parcels post guide, which
shows the number of the square in
which each postoffice is located, and
the district map for each postoffice of
unit shows in what zone from that
particular postoffice the city to which
a package is to be sent is located.
Titus the greater part of Texas, cut
by an arc starting below Corpus
Christ! and coming out at the north-
west corner of the Panhandle and
running just west of Fort Worth, is in
the sixth zone from Washington. -All
West Texas is in the seventh zone.
Accordingly, Central and East Texas
will be seven zones from the region
around New York, while Washington
and Baltimore will be about six zones
The parcels post rates for a distance
of six zones is one pound for 10c and
pound, making the rate on eleven
pounds $1. The raty for seven zones
is 12c per pound straight up to eleven
pounds, the rate for which is fl.32.
As fast as the map for each indi
vidual postofflee is completed it will
be. sent to the postmaster, together
with an official Iguide, which will
probably appear within a week.
