So onr beautiful 1st and 7th Wards are nothing but hog pens and cattle yards. Other people have no rights. — Hogs and cattle make onr aide walks slippery with filth, and onr children walk among them in danger of being gored to death. Our shade trees are ruined, and when we apply to the city authorities for ;help, they coolly tell ns, "mind your own business."
