Some three mouths ago we gave
a short account of a walnut rove
that had been set out by Mr. IVlix
Ciitiin. and he informs us that they
are doing finely nnd making a last

section, and in fact the whole valley
is especially adapted to nut-biating
trees, lie is not the only authority
for this statement. Felix illctt. a
prominent California nursery man
and nut culturiHt, is also nuthot in
fertile statement that the French,
commonly called F.nglish walnut
trees, are especially healthy and
vigorous uud prolific in this Wil
lamette valley. In an article, in the
Oregon Agriculturist and Rural
Northwest, he nays :
"It is of special intere-,t that Mr.
Priuce of Vamhill county, gathered
this past season from threo hundred
and fifty trees which had been

Women of lale years have begun
to demand as putt of ttuir rights,
that th should be paid ns highly
11s men, when they do the same
woik i.s 111 vn . And why not? It
is a Mibiect however on which
many prisons ililler. A toll was
lately passed bv both houses of the
lcgHatuit- of Ntv Voik granting
the same vii.nies to men and
women far practically thv same
work, but was vetoed by the gover
nor on the giound that it applied
only to tho women of the city in
stead of the h"k- slate. I he veto
was justified mid 110 doubt another
bill wiil be passed that will coincide
with the governor's idea.
Ordinarily the question of pay is
fixed by the law of supply ami de
mand, the same as the price of
wheat or potatoes. For nviny
years teaching was about the, only
occupation oniMile of housework
open to women who had to earn
their own living. The large sup
ply of women undoubtedly kept
I wages down, but today a score or
mote trades and professions, form
erly pursued only by men are fol
lowed by women and the (purifica
tions of a teacher have been raised
so high that it must be a trained
woman to secure employment as a
rule. It costs a woman just as
much financially nnd just 'as much
time and study to attain the posi
tion desired as a man and if fche is
his equal in uny special line or
study, why should she not teceive
the same payment ? Wo believe
the time is nt hand when the quali
fication, not the eex, will bo the
standard for wages fairly earned.
