Rep. Bloom presents sculptress with check from anonymous New Yorker to save home. Washington, D.C., Nov. 18. Early this week a reporter on a local paper discovered that Adelaide Johnson, sculptress, who created the Susan B. Anthony Sufferagist Group in the U.S. Capitol, was about to be evicted from her bare house. She had no means of moving several busts and statues which she had in the house and had set about destroying them. The matter was called to the attention of Rep. Sol Bloom of New York who investigated. An anonymous woman in New York sent a thousand dollars, and other amounts brought the total up to almost $2,000. Rep. Bloom arranged a suitable agreement with the realty company, and now Miss Johnson, shown here receiving the check, will be allowed to stay and continue her work. In the background is a bust of Susan B. Anthony

Sunday morning at Lynchburg Cotton Mill (Va.) Ed Tolley, the smallest, said 15 years old, but that is very doubtful.
