All sewage works were liable to give off unpleasant smells at times, but the extent of the risk of nuisance depended not only on the character of the sewage, but also on the method of treatment. Septic tank treatment was more of- fensive than simple sedimentation.! During sludging operations, sulphur hydrogen was given off. Per- colnted niters were usually attended with smell, and this was especially Halifax currency. It had no reserve fund. There was no money in circulation iri those days.

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 then- susceptibility to rust; From the knowledge gained through liis experiments Prof. Biffen 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 tune quite immune to yel- low rust.
