giving a description of experiments of
the author along that line. M. E.
Hiltnor gave on interesting description
of a new apparatus devised by him for
the determination of carbon dioxide,

the operator's mouth, and an automatic
burette for measuring and delivering
a fixed volume of liquid. Each of the
papers elicited considerable discussion
from those present.
