AN OLD-AOE PENSION SCHEME.—A scheme of old-age pensions, which comes into operation next month, has been evolved at Streatley Berkshire, in connection with the Streatley and Basilden Benefit Society. The society, which was founded forty-five years ago, is in the position of having only four members left, though it possesses funds amounting in the aggregate to RA68 12a. 10d. One of the standing rules which has been acted on through- out its existence has been to exclude every member arriving at the age of seventy. The trustees, finding that there are several old men still living who were cast adrift, some of them considerably over eighty years of age, consulted the Actuary and Registrar of Friendly Societies, and they have drawn up a scheme by which ten or twelve of these excluded members will be again put on the books, and receive from the reserve fund a pension of St. 6d. per month.
