edge today awaiting 3 o'clock when
Madero said he would attack the town

are spread through the hills west and
south of Juarez. The opinion is gener

citizens getting into the danger zone
The chief source ot apprehension that
Americans may be hurt, Is the fear
that rebels may attack Juarez from
the Buaache side.? It is almost cei'.
