.WILL DEMONSTRATE .
WHAT DOLLAR WILL DO
Portland Merchants Will isnow
Way to Keep Elusive Money
btnctiy at Home
A gigantic demonstration ' of
what a dollar will do in purchas
ing merchandise will be given in
Portland next month. Plans
were formulated recently at the
Chamber of Commerce, when a
I decided to make the demonstra-
1 tion, but appointed committees,
(fixed the date an(l started out to
make "Dollar Day" a red-letter
dav in the shouning district.

and to the shopper trom subur-
iban nolnts "Dollar Day." Tues-
day, September 23, will be a rev-
; Financiers have figured it out
; tliat if one dollar were started
1 into circulation and kent moving
from hand to hand, it would
uvith astonishing rapidity pay off
'a sum equal to the city debt.
I Portland merchants have or-
i ,Wnfl nnrl nrp ropfMvInc their
,new stocks. They are enormous
stocks, and it is probable that
those merchants owe a sum of
money much larger than the
debt of Portland. "Dollar. Day"
will show that the debt can be
wiped out and that every patron
of any of the stores participating
will have received a much larger
! amount of merchandise than he
1 could purchase for the same dol
lar on any other day of the year.
Tho news of what a dollar will
ibuy on "Dollar Day" is going to
be telephoned and advertised
throughout tho trade-district oc
cupied by tho Portland trader.
Ofllcial pennants will be plac
ed in the windows and before
the stores participating.
This' will be the first "Dollar
Day" ever held in Portland,

SKIM MILK AS FOOD S
Its Nutritive Elements Under
estimated Many Ways in
Which it May be Used in the
Skim milk is a very economi
cal food material, in the opinion
of experts in the United States
department of Agriculture, and
might well he more largely used
as human food this in spite of
the fact that it Is nine-tenths
water. The argument for econ
omy is based on the price at
which it is usually sold and upon
the composition of the remain
ing tenth, or the nutritive por
tion. Whole milk, as everyone
j knows, is an indespensable food
for the young, and even in the
diet of the adult it is compara
tively economical. The only
nutrient taken from it in skim
ming is the butter fat. There is
left, therefore, in the skim milk,
not only all of the sugar, which
amounts to about parts in
every 100, and all of the miner
al substances, but also all of the
protein. The last-named sub
stance is important because.'be
sides serving as fuel for. the
body, as fats, sugars, and stanch
es do, it also .supplies nitrogen
ous tissue-building material. The
proportion of protein in skim

constituents, which are alsoval-
