THE Special Advantages offered by. this Si Society arc—lst, aJ.arge-invested fund; 2nd, the funeral donation beiiig reassured by the National Division ; 3rd, a liberal relief during sickness, with choice.of any doctor within the district for members and their families, and as large funeral donation as is consistent with safety. Tiie Grand Division has established a Ceotral Sick Fond, which secures vmi-' foronity of fees and benefits throughout New Zealand ; allows members to move from one' division to another without any increase ofcontributions, and affords absolute security' to small or weak divisions,. Benefit, for Male Membeijs :—First sixmonths' sickness, 20s per Week; second six' months, 13s'; afterwards, IDs; death of a member, £30; death of a member's wife, £10. Half the above benefits are "received by. female members. Honorary Members of both sexes shall be entitled to the services of the physician and apothecary, providing tliey pass a satisfactory medical examination, and:recoup to the Division the amonnt'of fees payable by it to those officers on their account, j The pledge originally adopted has remained unchanged until the present time, and by it all forms of intoxicating drinks are proscribed. The position the Son 3 and Daughters of Temperance occupy is a standing, testimony of the vahte of JCotal Abstinence principles, and compares favorably with' any other riendly Society; the sickness rate showing o ne-third less than that of other Societies :not based on tptal abstinence principles; the death rate being only six per thousand in tho Sons ».nd.. Daughters of. Temperance, as against pine per thousand, the yearly average death rate of other Societies. This Order should command the support and J attention' of all earnest temperance ■workers, as it .gives uncontrovertible testimony of the value of total abstinence to the health of the body; exerts a decided influence on public opinion, and provides an opportunity for .total abstainers to make provision for themselves in case of sickness, accident, or death. ' . The Lodge meets. MONDAY, 12th May, and each " alternate ':' Monday, ai; the Templar. Hall, Ashburton, at 8 p,m. Every Total Abstainer Should Join. 213 -•■ • W. MURRAY, Sec.
