Annual members pay an initiation fee of $25, and $10 dues in semi-
annual payments. Any person paying $100 at one time becomes a member
tor life, and $250, and upward, a benefactor. Members of the regular
medical profession, residing in New York, Kings, Queens, Richmond
and Westchester Counties, who are in good health, are eligible for elec-
tion as members.

Persons Entitled to Relief: 1. The widow of a member whose
income does not exceed eight hundred dollars per annum. If said widow
shall marry again, her annuity shall cease. 2. Children of a member,
males under sixteen and females under eighteen years of age and un-
married, and where the mother's income is not more than two hundred
dollars per annum for each child respectively, in addition to the eight
hundred dollars above mentioned. 3. Orphans of a member, males under
sixteen and females' under eighteen years of age and unmarried, whose
income does not exceed two hundred dollars per annum. Every child,
on arriving at the age when the annuity ceases, shall receive the sum
of one hundred dollars as an outfit. In cases of prolonged ill health, or
other extraordinary circumstances, the assistance granted to the surviv-
ing children of members may be extended beyond the limits of sixteen
and eighteen years respectively. An aged mother, father or sister de-
pendent on a member may receive assistance after a member's death.
The marriage of the widow shall not invalidate the claims of the children
to assistance from the Society. No one shall be entitled to claim assist-
ance from the Society unless the person by virtue of whose membership
the claim is made has been a member for the two years previous to his
death.

Every widow of a member shall be entitled to four hundred dollars per
annum, but for every ten dollars or multiple of ten dollars, of income, an
amount fully equal to fifty per cent, of said income shall be deducted
from the annuity. Every child entitled to relief shall receive one hun-
dred dollars per annum, subject to the same reduction of fifty per cent,
of income as above. When there are full orphans, then each case shall be
specially investigated by the Standing Committee, and the amount fixed
for every year, according to the circumstances of the case.
