Hereafter no tax will bo withhold from per

from persons employed by the day and paid at

during the month exceeds tbe sum of fifty dol

a rate of compensation exceeding; fifty dollars,
the tax must bo withheld from the amount in
excess of that rate, even though tbe payment
Is for such a fraction of a month that tbo
amount due Is kss thau fifty dollars. Thus, If
a person whose salary is one nun area aouars
per month Is emjloyed but one quarter of a
given month, tbe tax must be withheld upon
tbo sum of twelve dollars and a half.
