Lake Huron urn nearly Identical in
euallty aad the same may he said of
hose of Lakes Ontario and Erie. Lake
Superior, however, carries Just about
half the amount of incrustaats borne
by the other lakes. The reason for
this variatloa is found In the geologi
cal formation that surrounds the
lakes. The st rests flowing into
Lake Superior draw, areas
posed chiefly of crystalline rocks,
which yield scant quantities of miner

Erie Is highest la incrustaats because
