BLANCHE CUNNINGHAM HAS
FOUND A NEW HOME
The Wayward Oirl Is Now Surrounded
by Kind Friends and Good
The mother of Blanche Cunningham,
the 15-year-old girl who waa placed ln
the King's Daughters' rescue home aev
eral months ago, called at Justice Mor
rison's court yesterday aternoon to ask
for the privilege of making periodical
visits to her daughter. The request was
not granted, for the reason that lt la not
believed that the mother's Influence over
her child would be ln any way beneficial
to the wayward girl.
Blanche was first arrested laat sum
mer. She was then living with another
girl and two boys in a gunny aack tent
in a canyon near Azusa. The facta were
published at that time and the depravity
of one so young seemed almost Incred
ible. The girl was kept in Jail for a few
days and then sent home to her mother.
It was not long before she was again
arrested for petty larceny. She waa
taken before Justice Morrison and tried
on the charge. During the progress ot
the trial the young fellow who had in
duced the girl to leave her home and
live with him ln the tent where ahe
svas daily debauched, appeared op the
scene and announced his readiness to
marry the girl, if by doing ao he could
prevent her from being Bent to jail.
Blanche's mother gave her conaent to
the marriage, knowing as she did of the
character of the man who wanted to
make her daughter his wife. A license
was issued from the county clerk's of
fice, but when lt was presented to Just
ice Morrison he refused to marry the

and it ls believed that with a little help
and good Influence she will yet grow up
to be a respectable woman.
