" By Hymaa H. Cohen
Foodstuff prices continue to tumble
in many lines; furtherjreducttons being
forced during- the day for both eggs and
butter.. The latter is down 4c a pound
in the wholesale trade and the consumer
Is entitled to this same reduction at re
tail, which means not- above 60c to 62c
a pound for the very best stock: on the
market.
Eggs are suffering a relapse In price,
but this appears to be a seasonable con
dition, due to the laying of the pullets.
Cauliflower is extremely cheap at
wholesale and good stock should be
available in the retail markets around
10c a head.
Onions are now so cheap in price that
the public appears to have forgotten
them entirely. Sales at this time are
the smallest known for' many years.
The public is still buying much fewer
apples than it should. This Is one of
the cheapest of foodstuffs. Buy them
by the box because they are cheapest
that way.
v The following prices ruled generslly in retail
shops for good quality. Some vslues are frac
tionally higher and inferior stuff fractionally
lower:
Butter Best creamery, 60 62c.
Eggs Fresh laid, 80c dozen ; ordinary, 78c
per dozen. !

Scattered commission bouses were bidders for

the trade in this country. v
. Wheat prices were erratic In the East
in the early Tuesday trade but there ap
peared a fair showing of strength. The
local situation is generally quiet
Because of the somewhat improved situation
throughout the country generally, there was a
steady tone in the local cereal trade. No price
changes were shown for flour or feeds tuifs dur
ing the day.
Little business to showing for wheat at coun
try points, although tnany of the growers are
tired of holding and are looking for a good
chance to get from under their heavy load.
While millstuffs are quiet at $40 a ton,
there is only a short supply in sight Prices in
that line dropped recently in sympathy- with
the lower prices for coarse grains.
Considerable selling of wheat by exporters, has
been reported during the last few days, but all

4 points to an advance of 11 points and later

There was a good demand from trade sources
and from new speculative buyers, while offerings
from the South were limited. Private cables

The Portland Vegetable
Oil Mills Co.
is meeting with deserved success in placing its stock of
fering. Of the total of $700,000.00 subscriptions to our capital
stock necessary before we commence plant construction,
we have but $58,000.00 yet remaining unsold of our public
offering.
We are selling this stock direct from company to sub
scribers at a cost not, to exceed 5 of our capitalization,
thereby saving to the subscribers from $100,000.00 to $150,
000.00, as compared to the usual methods of selling stock.
This saving will be invested in working assets intead of
in brokerage commissions.
We wish to begin plant construction but will not do so
until the remainder of our $700,000.00 has been fully sub
scribed. Money invested in legitimate, successful Portland
manufacturing enterprises will make a big'ger, better,
stronger Portland. It will give dividends to the investors
and pay-rolls to the employes.
We commend this as a safe, sound, constructive, up
building investment in a Portland enterprise of merit, or
ganized to continue and enlarge a successful, divided-paying
industry of 10 years' local standing.
