Rumor has it that the Shawnee Indian School in Oklahoma has been closed and that the pupils are to be taken care of in the Public schools of that section. Another rumor is to the effect that the Indian School at Pipestone is to be closed. We can not vouch for either of these reports. The Native American has come to our desk in new form as a result of the new ruling regarding printing. The Genoa News, the Indian Lead er and the Chemawa American con tinue as they were. The Chilocco Journal has not appeared yet but its advent is eagerly looked forward to. We also have missed the Sherman Bulletin, Flandreau Review, and the Pipestone Peace Pipe. The Oglala Light For The Education And Civilization of The Sioux Indian VOL. 20 PINE RIDGE, SOUTH DAKOTA, DECEMBER 1, 1919 NO. 2 Real Sugar Substitute Has Sanction of Government. Malt sugar sirup is a brand-new sweet which has arrived on a com mercial scale at the psychological moment to relieve the sugar shortage. In addition to being a sweet, malt sugar sirup has a delicious flavor, somewhat resembling that of honey, which adds much to its palatability and value as a sugar substitute. COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION BEGINNING While malt sugar has long been known to chemists, its production on A vUiiiuici WXM.1 is Uitl y Two factors have stimulated its production recently. The shortage of sngar has developed a market for it, and the recent prohibition law has made available both the raw ma terial and the machinery needed for its manufacture. Malt sugar sirup is made from the same grains as beer, and may be made from corn or pota toes or any plant containing starch. Barley, which was used until re cently in the manufacture of beer, can be used now to produce malt sngar sirup. Breweries, with very little change, can be used and are now being used for its manufacture. Up to a certain point the process for making malt sugar sirup is the same as the process for making beer. Evaporating pans is the principal additional equipment required by breweries to become malt sugar sirup factories. EXCELLENT SUBSTITUTE FOR SUGAR Malt sugar sirup looks very much like maple sirup. It can be used for everything that cane sugar is used for. While its use on the table may not be quite as convenient as sngar, it is a most excellent substitute for table use when sugar is not to be had, as it not only provides sweetness but is equal to sugar in food value. For cooking and baking purposes and for making candy it is not only equal to sugar in convenience and food value but is superior for some uses because it will not so readily crystallize. USED IN MANUFACTURE OF CANDY Malt sugar sirup is now being sold in large quantities to commercial bakeries and candy and soft-drink manufacturers, who use it in place of sugar. The wholesale price as quot ed in recent advertisements in trade papers and elsewhere is from 7 to 9 cents per pound in barrel lots. Many retail grocers do not handle it yet because there has been little demand for it on the part of house wives. Grocers can obtain it and no doubt will be glad to do so as the demand for it increase?.—Weekly News Letter. General School News.
