An even more interesting table of
figures in the by-laws of Mr. Rosen
walfl's mutual benefit: association is

'forth the amount of weekly and
death benefits that shall be paid

Mr. Rosenwald's mutual benefit as

ways as a Scotchman.
Mr. Rosenwald, we, have his sworn

of course, was weak before the

girl under $5 a week, and to pay $5
a week only to girls between 15 -arid.
16, it being understood-, that Mr,
Rosenwald employed nd-girla ".under
15 at his plant.
- Yet the cautious and canny Seroco
benefit association makes provision
for employes RECEIVING $3 $3.50,.
$4 and $4.50 A WEEK.
In view of the rule atMr." Rosen
wald's plant this is surpassing cau
tion. Possibly the gentlemea who.
formed the association felt the need
of it because Mr. Rosenwald might
suffer a brain-storm and change his
philanthropic rule.
Another instance of the surpassing
caution of the benefit association is
its provision of six clauses, two of 1
them subdivided . below $8 a week,
which Mr. Rosenwald's company; '
after investigation, . found to.bethe
lowest amount per week on which &
woman could live, and which see
Mr. Rosenwald's sworn testimony "
is the lowest amount of the "average
wage" paid "by Mr. Rosenwald to all
girls over the age of seventeen in his
employ.
The profits of Mr. Rosenwald, it is
to be hoped, are riot-so -fluctuating as
his wages paid appears tOibe.
