The Taichung Nantung District Environmental Protection Bureau said Huang Chi-lung, 28, a member of the bureau's Cleanup Team, was sorting through bags of donated clothes at a collection site in the city when he found the cash and notified his supervisor.


Officials took the bag that contained the money to a local police station, where officers found receipts and other documents that identified the owner.


The owner, a 72-year-old woman, said her husband had gathered the clothes to be donated without realizing one of the items contained the envelopes of money she had been saving for retirement and a wedding gift for her daughter.


The Environmental Protection Bureau said Zou brought the Cleanup Team a basket of apples to show her gratitude for the return of her money.

David Whitcomb said he and a friend were examining the building he purchased in Geneva when they discovered the structure had an attic that he wasn't told about when he bought the property.


Whitcomb said he located the access panel and looked into the attic, discovering it was filled with photographs, frames, glass negatives and other materials that appeared to be quite old.


He said the items are believed to have belonged to J.E. Hale, a photographer who was active in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Hale's name is on many of the items, including pieces of mail found in the attic.


Whitcomb said Hale's belongings in the attic included several photos of Susan B. Anthony, including a print of her official portrait from the Library of Congress, which was taken by Hale.


Whitcomb said most of the items from the attic were taken to One Source Auctions & Antiques for restoration and eventual sale.
