THE Special Advantages offered by this Society are—lst, a large invested fund ; 2nd, the funeral donation being 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. The Grand Division has established a Central Sick Fund, which secures uniformity of fees and benefits throughout New Zealand ; allows members to move from one division to another without any increase of contributions, and affords absolute security to small or weak divisions, Benefit for Male Members :—First six months' sickness, 20s per week; second six months, 13s ; afterwards, 10s; 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 they pass a satisfactory medical examination, and recoup to the Division the amount of fees payable by it to those officers on their account.
The pledge originally adopted has remained unchanged until the present time, and by it all forms of intoxicating drinks are proscribed. The position the Sons and Daughters of Temperance occupy is a standing testimony of the value of Total Abstinence principles, and compares favorably with any other Friendly Society; the sickne s rate showing one-third less than tha other Societies not based on total abstinence principles ; the death rate being only six per thousand in the Sons and Daughters of Temperance, as against nine per thousand, the yearly average death rate of other Societies.
This Order should command the support and attention of all earnest temperance workers, as it gives tincontrovertibfe 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, at the Templar Hall, Ashburton, at 8 p.m. Every Total Abstainer Should Join. 213 W. MURRAY. Sec. SEEDS, PLANTS, &c TKEES. TEEES. TEEES.
