the piinciples laid down in the Highland Society's
Report, and the Report of the House of Commons
with an addition of ten per cent, upon their tables;*
but having found this insufficient to sustain the
society, it was agreed, on 1st July, 1846, that a
reduction of the sick allowance should be made after
nine months' continued aliment, with a further in-
crease of ten per cent, upon contribution tables. It
has two departments, viz — 1st, The sick allowance,
with a stated superannuation allowance, from the
age of 65 to the end of life. 2nd, Allowance at
death; to any of which the members pay in propor-
tion to their ages and the benefits required; and
females are admissible to the latter department, the
two being kept perfectly distinct.
