French and Dutch peanut oils, the
United States was Importing nearly
900,000 gallons a year at an overage
price for all grades. Including soap

ing Post will be interealed in the fol-
lowing from the pen of Archie Whis
nant in the Bend Press:
"Louis J. Simpson has been Identi
fied with the lumber Interests on the
Pacific Coast from California to Puget
Sound. At one time In the history of
the industry the name of Simpson wa
a name to conjure with In matters
pertaining to the lumber game.
"Mr. Sirapson'a father, Captain A.
M. Simpson, was practically the first
lumberman and the first shipbuilder
on the Coast His character was ta
ken by Peter B. Kyne In his Inimitable
portrayal of Cappy Ricks.'
"Mr. Simpson would make an Ideal
executive of the state of Oregon. Hia
personality is delightful and his ability
as an executive is unquestioned."

Milk and Milk Dlahea.
The value of milk for the growing
family can never be too often express
ed. In these days when feed for the
cat lie eo;-ts so much more than
formerly, when labor Is higher and
very scarce the dairyman must raise
his price of milk or go out of busi
ness. Milk at 12 to 15 cents a quart
Is cheaper food than meat. Cut down
on other foods but never on the milk
for the family, for hx It are the growth
determinants or growth stimulant
which are so essential for a good body
framework and healthy blood. The yolk
of egg and good butter are also rich hi
this growth stimulant. A growing child
should have If possible three glasses
of milk per day, even when eating fhe
usual amount of solid foods found in
vegetables and cereals, milk la not a
beverage, It Is a food.
Milk with eggs hi the form of cus
tards Is one of the best, most whole
some and easily digested desserts for
Skimmed milk may be bought cheap
ly and Is a most nutritious food, lack
ing only tn fat, which may be supplied
In other ways.
For cream soups skimmed milk may
be used, and egg added to supply the
lack of fat with butter and flour used
In the binding makes It Is as good as
whole milk. Cold skimmed milk may
be given the children at meals for their
drink In summer and hot tn winter.
If plenty of good butter Is supplied
the child will be well fed. Cheese In
various fore may be used tn the place
of meat ;
i tiles with macaroni in
er toast, In cream jin-
loped potatoes and in
.hes which will occur to
mother. A simple and
v o supper dish which ts easy
are Is the following:
l, read the required number of sllcea
of bread with butter, place In a shal
low granite baking pan, cover each
slice with a thick layer of finely cut
cheese, or grated cheese may be used
If It is dry, then pour over enough
milk and eggs to cover the cheese.
Use one egg for every cupful of milk
used, add salt and a dash of cayenne
pepper, then bake nnUI the custard
Is set. Serve hot
A glass of hot milk for the restless
child upon going to bed will often
prove most soothing. Milk Is too val
unble a food to be slighted or cut out
of the diet because of Its cont It will
be far better to cut down on the meat
and buy more milk.
