After viÚt- ing the residences of the honorary members, they returned to St. Andrew's Church for tfftrine worship. The Rev. J. H.

Willis (secretary), and other officers of the lodge. After the toasts of "The King and The B shop, Clergy, and Ministers of all Denominations" had been honoured, the Vicar submitted the toast of the day. "The Loyal Order of Ancient S lieptier(L-)," and said he was glad to find the St. Andrew's I..D<!gc continued to prosper. The finanoee wore good, and there had been no loss of a member by death during the year. This he attributed a great deal to the medical skill of Dr. Moreton. Mr. R. H. Wiliis, responding on behalf of the lodge, urgc<! upon the members the importance of entering their clli!dren in the juvenile branch, and thus making it a nursery for the adult lodge. The total number of adults and juveniles on the books was 145, but the number of juveniles was not so large as it should be. The lodge had continued iic3 beneficent work during the year. After disbursing £62. 7, in sick pay, they had been enabled to pay to one needy brother, after he had received twelve months' sick pay, the sum of E7. 15-s. as a special grant.. After meet- ing all liabilities, there was a nett gain on the year of JB57. 8.0.. 4d. He referred to the great loss sustained to the iodgeJ by the death of the late Mr. W. Topham, who had from the first contributed liberally to its fund and was ever ready to help forward the lodge in every pos- s:b!e way. Bro. Fagan said it, was a ple:1511re to be privent- and to congratulate the members on their continued sueoets. The lodge was one of the mest prosperous in the IL-twarleii District, of which it formed a part. Bro. G. Cromar also spoke at some length, giving some statistics .hewing tliat at. present there were 230,000 mem- bers in the Order, of which 36,000 are juveniles. There had been a total income of £ 220,000. Their present fund** were bordering on £ 1,000,000. He congratulated the Loyal St. Andrew's Lodge on their continued prosperity. Ho saw their total funds amounted to e545. Is. 3d., which averaged a 6aving of JS45. 10s. a year after meet- ing all liabilities, which was a splendid achieve- ment. Referring to old age pensions, he believed that whatever was done in that, direction would have to be done largely through benefit scciet ie« like their own, assisted by money from State- funds. The other toasts honoured were The Honorary Members," for whom Mr. J. Lloyd responded; "The Medical Officer" (Dr. j Moreton), which was received with enthusiasm and "The Hot and Hostess" (Mr. and Mrs. Wilson) etc. Unfortunately heavy rain set in early in the afternoon, which completely spoiled the outdoor amusements.
