Partial Text

Three wolf puppies owned by Dr. E. H. McCleery took advantage of being liberated near his home yesterday and scampered into Evergreen park. Quite a crowd gathered to watch them play. Reports over this section held that three ferocious wolves escaped and that they had tried to devour a number of children.
