V,ator of tho (Jreat Salt lalo varied
groatly in Its contents of dissolved foI
Ids, depend big tip the relation bitween
the supply of wntrrthronshstroanis nnd
tho evaporation. A fair avcrago of total
solhU devolved In tho water of tho Ibko
at its prei-tnt mesni level la from 10 to
20 per ceat by wtight. But not all of
this is common salt, for besides tills in
Credieut the water contains sodinm eul
phato (glauber saltB), lnnguesiuin chlo
ride, calcium sulphatotgypsun;) and po
tassium sulphate. A detailed analysis
of water takon from tho Inlto in Au
Rust, 1388, was uiado by Dr. TalniaBc.
This contained in all 10. 50 per cent dis
solved solids, of whioh ID. 71 was com
liiou salt. Such water would yiold of
total solid matter U0! pounds to the ton,
and of common salt .bout DM pounds
to tho ton.
Tho Dead sea contains n greater pro
portion of Bolid matter dissolved in its
wnteia than does the Groat Salt lake.
Much discrepancy esists nmona pub
Hbhcd nceounts of its couten's. t'.e Hue-
tuationa in composition being duo to
the same causes that prevail in our lake
-viz, tho relation bctweeu tho supply
through iiillowirig streams nud loss by
evaporation. A sample taken from a
I depth of 1,110 feet carries SC.4 per cent
of dissolved solids. This corresponds tc
028 pounds to the ton, bat of this onlj
7.63 per ceut was common salt, or 151
pounds por ton.
Thoruforo, though tho Salt lako car
ries a lower proportion of nlssolved sol
ids of all borts than does tho Dead sea,
tho lako contains more than double the
proportion of salt. Tlio chief solid con
stitn. 4tof tho Dead sea water is not so
dium chloride (common talt), but mag
nesium chloride. Strictly speaking, the
waror of oar lako is much "briiiier"
than that of the Dead sea, common salt
belnir tho chief solid dissolved in the
lake. Nevertheless tho Dcadsea is much
moro highly saturated with Bolids
