Lost Trade Secrets
Numerous ace the ti'ttdc secrets
handed down generation liy generation from lather to son, and vast iH
the capital made out ol some ot
then,  in  the commercial  world.
Particularly, perhaps, iH thiH tho
chhc among the numerous manufacturers of piquant sauces and the
countless vendors of patient medicines.
Hut there iH also, it niiiHt be remembered, another side, to the case,
Many, alas! are the priccliiHH trade
uecrctH burled lar down below the
molderiiu' dust of the misty past uud
loBt to the world, perchance never
again to b" recovered,
To cite the first example that occurs to the mind of the writer, says
Answers,  tor  instance,   what  would  a
Koyal Academician of the present
day give to lie possessed of the secret
Ueid by the old musters- Raphael,
Hubeiis, Corroglo, Vim Dyke, and
their compeers—tor mixing their colors so as to render then, imperishable
to the ravages of time?
The red colors, especially, of these
artists of a bygone epoch are every
whit us bright now as they were
three long centuries ugo. On the
contrary, the colors of pictures
painted only 100 years ago have lost
their  lustre.
Again, in the world of music, the
manufacturers ot violins old masters, as one muy justifiably term them
in another branch of art—treasured a
recipe for a varnish that sank into
thc wood of their incomparable Instruments and mellowed it as well as
preserved  it.
Rather more than one hundred
yeurs ago there lived in a ipiuint old
world village in Wales, a working
blacksmith, who had managed, by
some means or other, to bring the
welding of steel to such a pitch of
.perfection that the joint was absolutely invisible, and the temper of the
steel us fine us on the day it left the
tester's hands. By his process he
was aide to join the very finest of
sword blades, and after he had tiu-
iahed with them they were absolutely as good and as sound as when
they had  left the factory.
The   blacksmith's  fame    spread    far
and wide and naturally enough, he
attained a great reputation, but he
made it a point of invariably working
in solitude. He was oflered large and
tempting siiiiih to divulge his secret,
but he kept it obstinattly to himself
i.nd when his span of life had run Its
(ourHe he took it with him to another world.
I The ancient Greeks had a substance
which we call Greek lire and which
they  used  in  naval  wall.ire.
Their method of employing it was
simply thiB—to throw thc substance
upon the surface of the water,
where It tlamed up and Bet tire to
the ships of the enemy. What was
it? The only known substance of the
present day that would do this is the
metal potassium; but. to set tire to a
ship In the manner described would
necessitate the use of at least half a
ton of this metal. Where did the
Greeks obtain the substance which
they used with such elfect? Or how
tiitl they make if If Greek lire was
potassium, the secret of the process
is another that must be numbered
with  the  lost.
The man who could disinter the
hurled recipe tor Roman mortar
would be bowed down to und worshipped by the builders of the present day. How they made it iB a profound secret and bids fair to remain
The mortar is as tirni as it was
JIK)0 years ago. It has calmly scotled
al   the  ravages of time and  weather.

in  Egypt,  when there was u shortage
1 In other placeB, he was simply telling
1 im something he had found out
during the time he was becoming
skilled in "all the learning of thc
Egyptians," lor the old cuneiform
tablets of N'inevah and Babylon had
shown him that periods of seven
years each of prosperity and depression alternated with euch other. At
least, this is whut Mr. Hawthorne of
Seattle, says, and he claims be is
warranted by the facts of history in
saying s... His own researches have
only gone back to 1746, since which
time  he  says there have  been  twelve
'periods ..t prosperity and twelve pcr-
itnis nf depression, which works out
nt very nearly seven years for each
period, He has published a chart in
which he shows the trend of business
since 188"J, or during 82 years. He
does not deal with local changes     in
'conditions, but with the situation
iiom a world standpoint. Hence he
disregards the especially good times
existing m Western Canada a year or
I two ago, for at that time business the
world over was depressed. He Bhows
by his chart that in 1*^82 business
was at a low ebb and that the depression continued to grow more serious until the early part of 1885,
when it began to improve rapidly
reaching a high level at the close of
l^E, and continuing at that stage,
with a slight fluctuation until near
the close of 1890, when it fell rupidly,
I but  continued  above  average      until
I early In IS'l'i when it went down with
f, plunge to the lowest level reached
ir decades. Towards the end of 189"
il began to get a little better but the
upward tendency wub not noticeable
until about the middle of Has, and
did not really reach what might he
called activity until the middle of
IS99. The year 19i»0 was u good one,
but in the middle of June, 1907, business dropped like a plummet. That
was the time of the "haukers' panic" I
and since then there hns been no
real general change, although one is
due at  the present time. Brudstreet's

Cumberland Climbing
|      is Limited Sport
In its tirst few yeurs rock climbing
in the mountains of the lake district
was regarded by most Alpine experts
us u foolish local fancy, u gymnastic
traze which would rapidly wear itself
out, und one could meet with critics
hold enough to put a date to its tinui
i Itlnctlon. But lake district climh -
ing still remains the sport of hand -
reds, und the training school of
many excellent English mountaineers.
Critics still remain, of course, but
they ure too often people who hide
their lack of local knowledge and of
rock Climbing behind the reputation
of great continental experts. Perhaps it is too cruel to repeut that
one such critic, describing the failure
of his day's expedition, said tbut even So-and-so (of International fume )

problem—nnd thut within hearing of

There Was, however, a sound technique behind the maligned rock-craft
which duty (nnd without parade or
1 oast) made a revolution in mountaineering methods. The fnme of long
ladders of steps cut up perilous ice-
walls, of dangerous ascents up bad
snow slopes, began to suffer, and even on tbe most orthodox of orthodox
High Aljis safe and sound rock routes'
took precedence—and Buch rock routes have continued to be the object
of the pioneer and the climber.
The standard of rock climbing in
Cumberland is conceded to bo th
highest in the world. The chief reasons are that the area ot climbing
lock is very limited, thnt practically
three generations of skilled men bave
here put forth their full strength and
knowledge, and that the nearness of
the crags to the cities und the facility
with which they can he reached have
brought up a tremendous number   of
climbers. The hiirhcst peaks in Cum
brin scarcely exceed three thousand
leet, and the climbing rocks an practically    confined to    five    mountain
masses: Scafell, Cleat Cable, the Pillar, I,unci.tie Pikes and Collision Old
Man. Probably many a good Alpine
peak hus in itself me.re visible crag
than  the  whole areii.
Then, too, the sheer height of the
courses from base to summit rarely
exceeds six hundred feet, a fact which
tends to a multiplicity of short and
highly Involved Climbs. The short
distance Irom lieatfi|tiartcrs gives climbers every opportunity of arriving in
good condition, though, ol course the
multiplicity   and   luxury   ol   high-level

High Cost of Living vs.
Low Cost of Insurance
Midst all the increasing cost of living there's one
thing that hasn't advanced that's the cost of Imperial Life policies. In fact, an Imperial policy, today requires no greater annual investment than a
similar policy taken at a corresponding age a dozen
years ago.
And the fact that the dividends to policy holders in the
Imperial Life have shown a gradual increase every year since
the Company's inception makes this investment more attractive now than ever before.

Connolly Winner of Splendid
Bout in Opera House
Last Night
One of the best exhibitions of
Wrestling  ever   seen    in       Kevelstoke.
was staged last nighl In the opera
House when I'nt Connolly of Vancouver won (rom Hob Sutherland ol Kelowna. Owing to tho hot weather
'here wus noi tbe iiiiinlifl of spectators present thai the bout warranted
The    match      was  for the  first  two
lulls out of three but aftei _i minutes of hard work Connolly got a Japanese lock ou Sutherland and stated
that unless Sutherland gave him the
match he would break his arm. The
referee gave the decision to Connolly
rhe wrestlers worked hard from start
to  tinish      and  although  they  deserve
credit for not disappointing the
crowd which was rather small the
spectators were rather misled by    the
referee announcing at the beginning
of the match that it would be two
fulls out of three and some were disappointed at Connolly getting the
mutch under these conditions, Sutherland claiming that Connolly should
only  have  t.een  given a  fall.
Both men were in tight places at
different times and their science in
breaking the holds brought applause
from an appreciative audience. After the match Connolly oflered to
throw any six men in the country in
one hour for a bet of 8500, giving
them  until  July   13 to accept.
Tom Hope of Revelstoke refereed
the match. From the remarks heard
titer the bout the spectators seemed
to think  thnt  the exhibit ion  wus well
worth the money,
Brilliant Fielding   Feature of

The game al   Vernon between  Rev

to   1.    There      were  u   few  triors  but
they     were  offset    by   some    splendid
field work. There waa only one stoi

not be considered a pitchers battle.
Both pitchers were hit pretty badly
tbe hits being mostly bunched but
even at that they each bad 0 strike
outs to their credit, The fielding on
Ihe   whole   was   gootl.    O'Neil   of   tho

Kan.loops,      St 11, at  tirst  place, did
not play     yesterday, tbe game with
Kelowna having failed to come ort.
Kelowna's team, which rumor has
had "on the rocks" for some weeks
past, has been definitely disbanded,
I nil Kelowna will not figure in the
league  for the  rest  of the season.
Definite word to this effect wns given tothe Vernon News yesterday afternoon by K.S. Co Kelowna.
Owing to the loss of their two pitchers and their catcher, and to lack of
support, Kelowna is finally out of tbq
running, Bald Mr. Coatee, the manager.
| A meeting of the executive of the
league is to be held in Vernon today
to consider a re-arrangement of the
schedule, necessitated by Kelowna's
retirement. A new series may be nr-.
ranged, a new town admitted, or the
present   series  merely  re-arranged.
From the point of view . f the spectators the game was the most worth

Police Thought Harmless
Launch Bore Robbers
Kaslo, B.C., July 10.—Lest any Impression disturbing to the equanimity
of the law-abiding ami peace-loving
citizens of Kaslo Bhould gain strength lollowlpg tint perusal ol a report
of attempted robbery of the Bunk of
British North Aiueiicu here, il. muy
be snil that iii tint opinion of many
cltizenB that no attempt was made to
nib I hi' bank on thn morning of Friday last, About •_' o'clock that morn-
ill's' a white gasoline launch wuh observed by thf vigilant police to start
out from thf waterfront not far from
Un' rear of tin' bank, 'P. 0. Wilson
was asked to go to thf bank ami
arouse  Ronald  Salmon,   who  guards
nml sleeps on the premises, Mr. Wilson pounded al the door Bnd tried
with his voice to arouse Mr. Salmon
and falling to elicit any response af
ter all the noise that was made, it
was concluded that the lethargy ol
tlie Bleepor must have been caused by
a drug Irom the hand of the cracksman if, Indeed,     the watchman lived
at. all. Thc truth was that Mr. Salman had been to Nakusp on Wednesday   ami   as the   train  ditl   not  get  in
until 2:15 Thursday morning, depleted
nature was claiming her own antl Mr.
Palmon was Bleeping the sleep of one
"having a conscience void of offence."
Mrs. Wilson had hy this time found
a heavy boot anil by an unwearied
pounding on the door directly above
the Bleeper's head succeeded in awakening Mr. Salmon.
By this time the bout hail sped on
its way to Kaslo point, where it stopped the police surmise, to receive two
of the crib-cracking desperadoes who
were left behind, but gasoline propelled boats often atop when motion
is anxiously desired and the cause of
the stop might have been too fat a
mixture, too lean a spark or a combination of both. At nny rate thc boat
soon started on her Journey currying
foui perfectly respectable looking men
who no doubt regarded bunk robbery
aa an'abstract proposition, if they ever thought of it. lit all.
As it is, the clear duty of the police
to t'ike no chance of allowing such
depredations as those suspected to be
carried ort with success, wires were
sent out advising of the suspicion nnd
asking that a lookout he kept for tho
white launch and Its occupants and
the business that took them abroad
tl  sucb an hour learned.
A y.iung man was questioned by the
police   in   the   morning,   but   was able

duct  without any trouble.

W. B. DeWitt, who wub foreman of
the Queen mine mill for a number of
years, in partnership with H.H. McDonald, U. Q, Davies nnd CK. Johnson, all formerly employed at the
Queen mine and mill, has taken n
lease on the Porto Rico mine, near
Porto Rico siding, north of Ymir,
with a view to operating it. This
mine has not been worked for several
years and the machinery and plant
constating of a stamp mill, compressor, drills, etc., is in a bad state of
repair, but the lessees think they will
be able to put things in shape und
make a profit on the ore milled. There
is said to be about 200 tons of ore
broken now and this can bc milled at
a profit. George Meckle, working for
W.R. Salisbury of Salmo, is taking

Tells of Need of
Missionary Work
Miss   lv   t'.   McGregor,   tield   secre.
tary  of  the  Women's  Missionary  society of the Presbyterian church gave
gave an address in  St.   John's church
last   Sunday   at,   the  morning  service.
She told  of the need of     aggressive
missionary  work,  both at home   and
abroad, and of what was being    accomplished  at     present.   The church
was doing a great      work among the
' Indians in  Canada,     but it was not
reasi.liable to expect the Indians    to
• attain in 3(1 years what it has taken
several  hiindhretl  years  for the white
| men to attain.  The  preaching of thc
I gospel   has      produced   wonderful   re-
; suits in Indin and the outlook is ex-
I ceedingly bright.     In the tirst 10 yeurs
of missionary effort     In these lands
I the converts were gathered into     the
church  b)   twos  and  threes  now they
jure coming by thousands every year.
;Miss     McGregor    is an  able  speaker,
and deeply impressed her hearers witui
her earnestness and the lucidity     of
her appeal.
