Portland, Ore., June 12.The mini
mum wage to be paid to women em
ployed in mercantile, manufacturing
and other lines of employment in this
state was advanced torlav from ?1
30 per cent. The increase was or
dered by the state industrial welfare
commission last April, following ex
tended hearings and conferences with
a committee of citizens. The weekly
wage of women in mercantile estab
lishments will be not less than $11.10,
with employment limited to eight
ffours and twenty minutes a day, or
SO hours a week. The apprentice tern.
s 'divided, the lowest being $7.20.
Outside of Portland a similar scale of

" Aristocratic Orchids
undoubtedly, the . aristocrats of
tne nower world are the orchids, and,
ior ine reason tney require especial
care in their' oroduetinn pomfnprn'at.
ly,they are dtstined long to retain
this position. '
While they have always been con-
siuerea as too luxurious for ordinary
decorative use, the time has arrived
wnen, through a better understand
ing of their requirements, and the
economies perfected m their produc
tion on a commercial basis, they are
available often at an expense easily
met by a very ordinarv nur. In
our larger' cities one sees them com-
niumy usea in corsage Douquet torm
for-personal adorriment, and on the
dining tables even of the moderately
wen-io-ao tney are given preference
over many other flowers. ,
Orchids, with proper care, will out
last practically any other flowers.
Particularly in this case when the
orchids have been allowed to mature
to. the full before they are cut, for
then they require less support from
moisture passing up the stem than
ordinary, flowers. When this quality
is considered," orchids are cheap
rather than expensive. - .
y Table orchids may be used every
day for ten days or two weeks, even
longer, if given the care they need,
nd which is not troublesome. After
using, immerse them, heads down

is best keeping them immersed until
in hour or two before they are to be
used again; remove them, carefully
shake off the water, and place, them
on a cloth in a cool place until re
quired for the table. They should not
remain on the table longer than is
necessary, and upon removal should
igain be immersed in water and left
until required for use next day. Re
peat the treatment until the flowers
have passed their usefulness. Even

moisture, than ordinary flowers, such

geese were tissing angrily. ,
Peggy realized thac her thoughtless

She realised, too, that she was in the

So she hastened to apologize.

speech, but Judge Owl came to her
"King of the Wild Geese," he said,
"this is Princess Peggy. What she
savs is so even if it isn't so. She has
come to save Birdland from the Giant

The King of the Geese took a long
look at Peggy, then he saluted stiffly
with his wing, his whole army doing
"As a King to a Princess, I accept
your apolog, ," he said. "Any enemy
of the Giant of the Woods is our

every one, but be very quiet."
Soon they were all in the clearing
where stood the Giant's castle. Sure
enough, there was the Giant asleep in
his hammock, which hung between
two posts. He was snoring loudly.
, Peggy studied the situation care
fully. The 0iant looked very large
and powerful. Beside his bulk and
strength the birds seemed small and
helpless. 'There came to her mind
the scene in Guilder's Travels, where
the sleeping Gulliver is bound with
threads by the tiny Lilliputians and
rendered helpless. Why couldn't they
bind the sleeping Giant vn the same
On a shelf beside the house was the
Giant's fishing tackle. In it were
many lines. These lines could be tied
to the hammock, the geese could take
hold of the other ends and thus carry
the Giant away.
She called the King of the Wild
Geese apart and asked him if it could
"Surely," he answered. "But you'll
have to tie the lines to our feet, as
if we took the lines in our beaks w
would drop the giant when we honk
ed. You know Wild Geese always
honk when they fly."
So it was decided. Peggy found the
Giant's knife on the shelf and with
this she cut the lines into lengths
that she could use. The birds helped
her carry them to the hammock and
there she tied them to the edges. To
do this she stopd on the back of Blue
Heron, using him as a moving scaf-
After she tied the carrying lines she
bound the Giant in the hammock with
lines stretched across it. She had to
work very carefully. Every once in
a while the Giant would give a big
snort, which would scare her mightily,
as she thought he was waking up.
When the carrying lines had been
tied to the feet of the Wild Geese, all
was ready. The strongest of the
ether birds took hold of the lines with
their beaks in order to give the Wild
Geese a boost at the start. Peggy
stood on the Heron's back and with
the Giant's knife sawed through the
rope at the foot of the hammock. As
the last strand parted, down came the
Giant with a thump.
The bump awakened the Giant. He
gave a shout of alarm and tried to
free himself. The Heron trotted
