Comparison of Ages. Some of the youngest workers in Roanoke (Va.) Cotton Mills. On right-hand end is seven year old Frank, a helper. Next to him is twelve year old Ronald, a doffer. On his right is Mamie Witt, twelve year old spinner. Girl on her right said fourteen years old, but doubtful. On her right, (with curl on shoulder) is Inex [i.e., Inez?] Kennedy, just fourteen. The second girl on her right is probably under fourteen. This is a small mill, running a small force.
