For a bout with either Willie
Ritchie, Murphy or Attell, Mr.
nWolgast wants $15,500.
Should Wolgast fight Joe Riv

received for fighting the Mexican

And should they send Packey

idea of his own value," said Cof
iroth. "Now, I certainly could not

Summer in the slums!
Through the narrow street
Pallid sickness comes
With the baking heat;
Mothers pale and sigh
In the fetid air,
Babies fade and die
In the blaze and glare.
Heat that blinds and blurs
From the pavements cast;
Every breeze that stirs
Is a furnace blast!
Children wail and weep,
Far too worn to play;
There's no rest or sleep
Night or burning day!
You, whose well filled purse
Buys you comfort clear,
Help to lift the. curse
Front these babies here;
Send them glad and free
Where the wild bee hums,
So that they may flee
Summer in the slums !
