It's hard to tell from this image but familysearch has a clearer one. It looks to me like "Daughter Perle Bragarnick". The address is "Ribwaya St.", probably Rybvaya Street, "Tiraschpol Chersonsky Russia", probably the city of Tiraspol, Kherson gubernia (province), in the Russian Empire. Tiraspol was in Odessa uezd (district), and the family's last address was Odessa. The second page of the manifest shows that the mother and children were all born in Odessa. Incidentally, the name Worobiew, or Vorobev, comes from the Russian word for sparrow.
