The results of fop slpnr.Iiug experiments undertaken nt the instance of the Council forecast a ""w type o'" science for use in the Hiver St. Lawrence and the Gulf, thus making an important contribution to the safety of j St. Lawrence navigation. Studies and experiments on the com-' position of sulphite liquor .waste in Apart from the | Canadian pulp mills, enormous in connection with I quantity and destructive of fish in streams, have given results which point the way to the commercial uti'. iziithui of at least the sugar it con tains to furnish alcohol for industrial purposes. Kxperiments are also being conducted in regard to the production of a rust* resisting wheat, the necessity for which is seen from the fact that, annually more than twenty million dollars is lost through rusted grain in the prairie provinces. These are hut some of the problems which the council nas been worluni. on for the past year.
