FRJ EXDLY SOCIETIES. The special meeting of Court Star of the South, No. 5843, A.0.F., held in the Foresters’ Hall on Saturday evening for the purpose of initiating candidates who were unable to attend the ordinary meeting, which was well attended by members of the Court.. Nine candidates were in attendance, and were duly initiated by Chief Hanger Bro- C. W. Patton, who afterwards addressed the meeting on the many advantages to be gained by joining a Friendly Society, and urged all present not to be content by simply paying in the contributions, but to attend the meetings, which were both instructive and beneficial. The next meeting would be held on the 13th June, when the. nomination of officers will take place, and as several members have signified' their intention of being. nominated for the various offices there should be a laree attendance. Bro. C. E. B. Ward will also read a paper, which will be open for discussion. The new amended General Laws are now registered, printed, and ready for circulation. The Registrar is 'evidently satisfied that the present rate of contributions are quite adequate to meet all benefits promised. There are several alterations in the laws, the most important being the reduction in the initiation fee, which is now fixed at 5s for all ages from 17 to 40. This should be'the means of swelling the Forresters’ ranks in the United Otago District.

Mataura and Edendale cheese factories scored well at the Dunedin winter show.
