The most youthful juror ever sum

doing most of the fighting.
Twice since then Orozco has been
in Mexico City, lie came llrst to
personally escort President Madero
to the palace on the day of his in

Members of the opposition party
in the Mexican congress have started
a movement to abolish the ollice of

they do not like. This opposition
