The two main questions, j therefore, to be considered in the j case of a 'town proposing to adopt j a system of sewage purification are, first, what degree of purification is required in the circumstance of that j town and of the river or stream into which its liquid refuse is to be dis- charged; and second, how the degree of purification required ca.n, in the particular case, be most economical ly obtained.

In the next or two it- would not be surprising to find that our population had doubled again. The Herald accepts tho figures as Thanks Awfully for keeping us so busy we have no time to note the calendar. Indications are that Christ- mas is near, however.

With a strong, strong puil our picture framer keeps abreast of his numerous or- ders, and when we compare his tasteful work with the packing box freaks of others we break forth into ragtime paeons of triumph, whatever that means. R, SICE RUSTLESS .WHEAT. A Scientific Marvel Si Being Accom- plished at Cambridge. (Harper's Magazine.) The most important :and -the most fascinating of -all Prof.' Biffeh's ex- periments in the laboratories of Cam- bridge England, concern production of varieties of wheat im- mune to prevalent pests; In all countries the most serious enemy of the wheat farmer is rust. In the bad rust year of 1891 the loss due to This cause in Prussia alone was calculat- ed at over while a well known authority estimates -that- the average loss from rust'to the-'wheat crops Of the world would not be cov- ered by ]STo prophylactic against-the-disease has been and it is recog-, nized that the only way- to avoid; it is to make use of-Tarieties which; ars- naturally immune. Unfortunately the few such varieties 'that exist are in other respects poor and unprofitable to--grow. Prof. Bien began his experiments by crossing a variety peculiarly sub- ject to the attacks of yellow rust with an immune variety. The hybrids" produced were all- severely attacked by rust. In the such seed as could be collected from these plants was sown. The greater num- ber of the resulting plants were much rusted, .but some were entirely free from the disease, though growing, up in the closest contact with their.rusty brethren. It -was found on counting that the immune plants formed al- most exactly a quarter of the total number. In other words, the experiment proved susceptibility and immunity to be a pair of Mendelian characters, and consequently within the control of the breeder to combine with other characters according as he pleased. The fact that resistance to yellow rust is a unit character exhibiting Mendelian inheritance, makes it a simple matter to transfer it to wheats which are in every way desirable ex- cept for their susceptibility to rust. From the knowledge gained through his experiments Prof. Bifien has been able to build up wheats combining the large yield and excellent straw of the best English varieties with the strength of the foreign grain, and at the same time quite immune to yel- low rust. During the present year several acres of such wheat coming true to type were grown on the Cam- bridge University experimental farm, and when the quantity is sufficient to be put upon the market there is no reason to doubt its exerting a considerable inflence on the agricul- tural outlook.
