The mounted carriers' mail route in the third, second and first wards has been laid out and will be carried for the first time tomorrow. W├╝liam Baxter, carrier No. i., has been transferred to the mounted service and will take the new route. He will be armed with a whistle, which will notify those getting mail that the carrier has passed. The citizens on the new route have promised to put out boxes, which is the only way in which the new carrier can carry the extensive route.
