With tho Increase of 12 1-2 per cent to
the employes of the manufacturing ond
of the American Woolen compuny, the

much more than JW.OOO per week and on
tho Friday preceding Christmas will

Thore are at present In the Wlnooskl
plant between 1,900 and 2,000 employes, and
the pay roll before the last Increase was
nbout J48.000. The increase brings this
amount up to about J56.0U0, nnd for the
first time since Its beginning tho pay
roll goes over $.V),000. The Increase
amounts as much to Die citizens of Wl

not more than one-third what It Is at pres

tho amount was considered large when
24,000 was paid out In one week. In ad
dition to the Increased wages the employes
are receiving many other advantages
that do not cost them a cent. An em

The cheapest labor In the mill at pres

nnd a half for over time. The weavers
and spinners will now average about M0

There are many families In Wlnooskl to

wife work with some of the grown-up
children. The Job of keeping tabs on the
Income taxes of these mill employes Is
going to be a big one In the future.
A part of the big Increase In wages
has gone into Liberty bonds, for the mill
men were big subscribers, and the last
bond has not been completely paid for
yet. Most of the money seems to bo go

large Increases In deposits, while some
