There is no evidence from which it can be ascertained how much or what proportion either of the $50 or of the $90 was used for the support and maintenance of the mother. The $40 from the husband's income was at least a partial support. The additional $50 was a general benefit to the family, but there is no basis in the evidence for determining what proportion of it was used for the support of the mother and what proportion for general family expenses. There is therefore no basis for the finding that her dependency was fifty-six per cent of total dependency. The finding of partial dependency, whatever its degree, entitled the claimant to the minimum award of $1650.

The facts found were sufficient to constitute the basis for a proper decision, and the judgment of the circuit court is therefore reversed and the cause is remanded, with directions to enter an award for $1650, payable in installments, if the claimant shall elect to accept such award, otherwise to remand the cause to the Industrial Commission for another hearing.

Reversed and remanded, with directions.
