n-omiewi nt oaly to relieve- the pres
nt ahortag e and' prevent a- future
eitroUy of sugar, but also to pro
Tide profitable use for the plants
nd machinery formerly used ia the
Shewing of beer. This i a new sweet
-whieh has been put on a commer--ekri
basis at the psychological mo-
inf, say the pealists ot the'De
artmeRt' of Agjfiottlture, by whom

i 3'a addition to being a sweet, Malt
irogar syrup has' a delicious "flavor
. somewhat like that of honey1, the
chemists say. This quality adds to
ite palktableness and value as a sub
stitute for sugar. '
kMalt sugar sirup has long been
known to chemists, but ita'produc
rtion oar a commercial basns has only
Sately been undertaken with i. pros
peel of success. Two""factors have
tended to stimulate its manufacture.
'Tho shortage of ordinary sugar has
developed a market for substitutes,
and the decrease in the, use of grains
Tor brewing has afforded plentiful
It is 'announced by investigators
of tho Department of Agriculture (
hat wfth very little change brewing

ufacture of this new sweet. Up to a
.certain point the, process for making
malt sugar sirup is identical with
that of brewing beer. EvapTTrating
plans ore said to be tho only addi
tional efluipraent winch breweries

Malt sugar sirup is aready being
sold Sn largo quantities to commer
cial bakeries and, (to manufacturers-

it (instead of sugar. The wholesale,,
price has recently been quoted at
from 7 to 9 cents a pound by tho
The Department of Agriculture
points out that the sirup can be used
in cooking,, baking and home-mnde

Mr. .Palmer, attacked -the "buy
now" campaign, declaring that ftour
job is to wait, both in our interest
and in the interest of the nation and
tho world at large, that the demand
may be lighteflfed.' Ho called upon'
"the plafin people" to wear,their old
clothes a little longer, to refuse to
buy until production had caught up
with tho demand. This, he assured
the officials, was ono pf tho prin
cipal means of ending tho spectacle
of "tho dog chasing its tail around
a circle." Unless the people them
selves take this step, tho attorney
general said, the natlion cannot ex

After all these, years of fictioa
writers propounding, not so much
for the advancement of science as
for the entertainment of the public,
countless plans to bend the will of
Jupiter PfuviuB to the dictate of
man and successfully call down rain
from the heavens, comes an Oregoa
'aviator with claims of having turn
ed the trick.
Furthermore, the governor of that
state is reported to bo planning of
ficial experimentation, in tho bopeof
dispelling the forest firo menace. The,
scheme, follows the same general plan
used by the small, boy to catch the
bird. In short, it's simply sprinkling
salt on a cloud's tail. -"4.5
In flying,- th aviator, found that
he often passed through partly form

much moisture, but not enough to

and rata result.
