More than 168,000 cubic meters (6 million cubic ft) of water go over Niagara Falls every minute during peak hours. It has the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world, with a vertical drop of more than 165 feet (50 m). Come with Tidbits as we remember daredevils and fools who have gone over the falls. OVER A BARREL

• Annie Edson Taylor was the first person ever to go over Niagara in a barrel. A widowed and unemployed schoolteacher, she was 63 years old in 1901 when she pulled off the stunt on her birthday. She was strapped into a harness inside an oak wine barrel padded with cushions. A bicycle pump was used to increase the air pressure inside the barrel after she climbed in. Then she was towed into the river above the falls. After the plunge, she spent 17 minutes bobbing around before assistants were able to snag the barrel and pull her to shore. Emerging dazed but unhurt, she said, “No one ought ever do that again.â€? She was incoherent for several days afterwards. Alas, the fame and fortune she was hoping for eluded her – perhaps because she was neither young nor beautiful – and she spent the next 20 years working as a Niagara street vendor, selling photos of herself with her barrel for a penny. She died, destitute and unknown, 20 years later.

• Circus stuntman Bobby Leach went over the falls in a steel barrel in 1911, surviving with minor injuries. While on tour with his famous barrel in New Zealand in 1925, he slipped on an orange peel on a street and fell. He broke his leg, which later had to be amputated, leading to gangrene, which killed him.

• Nathan Boya made the trip in 1961 in a steel sphere covered by six layers of rubber, which he called the “Plunge-o-Sphere.” He included 13 canisters of oxygen on the advice of Jean Lussier. He emerged unhurt to find the police waiting for him. He was fined $100 – the minimum sentence for violating the Niagara Parks Act – and he had to pay court costs of $13.

• Karel Soucek became the first Canadian to survive the plunge. In 1984 he went over in a cylindrical barrel with fiberglass moldings, liquid foam insulation, a two-way radio, and a snorkel for breathing. The fall took 3.2 seconds and the force of the fall snapped off his radio antennae, leaving him without communication. He was trapped in dangerous waters for 45 minutes before being pulled free. He suffered only minor injuries. He was fined $500. Six months later he was re-creating the spectacle at the Houston Astrodome in front of 45,000 spectators. His barrel was lifted to the top of the astrodome by a crane and released above a water tank only ten feet wide and ten feet deep. It hit the edge of the tank and he was killed. He was buried at the Niagara Falls cemetery. Of all the people who have gone over the falls seeking fame and fortune, he came the closest to achieving it. He would have earned a quarter million dollars through public appearance contracts in the year following the feat if he hadn’t died in Houston.

• On the 4th of July in 1928, Mr. Jean Lussier survived the trip not in a barrel but in a 6-foot rubber ball lined with rubber tubes and filled with oxygen. The tubes had valves that could be released, providing oxygen should he become trapped behind the falls. He was the first person to take the trip in an inflatable device instead of the more traditional wooden barrels or steel drums. After bobbing about at the bottom of the falls for an hour, he was pulled to shore and emerged unharmed in front of an audience of over 100,000. Afterwards he sold small souvenir pieces of the inner tubes for fifty cents each. When he ran out of authentic pieces, he peddled rubber purchased from a nearby tire store. • 46-year-old Greek chef George Strathakis went over in 1930 to generate publicity for his book entitled The Mysterious Veil of Humanity Through the Ages, which was a rambling incoherent treatise. His barrel was trapped behind the falls for over 14 hours before it finally broke loose. Strathakis, with only enough oxygen for several hours, suffocated. However, his pet turtle named Sonny Boy, reputed to be 105 years old and taken along for good luck, survived.

• In 1826, English chemist John Walker was attempting to create a new explosive. Stirring an antimony sulfide and potassium chlorate-based formula with a wood stick, he noticed a teardrop shaped glob had dried on the stick’s tip. He scraped the stick against the stone floor to remove it and, to his surprise, the stick caught on fire. • In 1827 Walker began selling “Friction Lights” but he never applied for a patent. They had tips coated with a potassium chloride-antimony sulfide paste, which ignited when scraped between a fold of sandpaper. They came in a tin, each with a piece of sandpaper. The user folded this over the match, held it tightly and pulled the splint hard. Walker made little money off the invention and copy-cats soon abounded. There were problems with the matches, however. They ignited with the force of a firework and they smelled terrible.

him enter the water and immediately radioed the Hydro Control Dam upstream. They cut the water flow of the Niagara River and the water level dropped five feet in three minutes. The barrel got stuck in shallow water a mile above the rim of the falls. But Dave Munday was persistent. Later that year he tried again, this time launching himself scant yards above the falls, and made the trip successfully in an aluminum barrel equipped with video and radio equipment. In another attempt in 1990, his barrel got stuck on rocks at the very brink of the falls and he had to be rescued by a cable on a crane. In September of 1993 he tried again, this time in a converted diving bell. At age 56, became the first person to go over the falls twice.

• In 1830, French chemist Charles Sauria discovered how to make matches using white phosphorus instead. They didn’t smell as bad, they burned longer, and they were less explosive. However, it turned out to be a disastrous development due to the toxic nature of the phosphorus. Inhaling fumes from burnt matches had deadly consequences. When the fumes of white phosphorus are inhaled, or when fingers that have contacted phosphorus contact the mouth, or when a drinking glass is used that has been in the presence of phosphorus fumes, the toxin enters the body. A single pack of matches contained enough phosphorus to kill a person.

• A Rhode Island bartender named Steven Trotter wrapped two plastic pickle barrels in inner tubes and a tarp and went over the falls in 1985. At the age of 22, he became the youngest person ever to make the trip. He was fined over $5,000 for the stunt, but he more than made up for that with his talk show fees. On the tenth anniversary of the stunt, he returned with a woman named Lori Martin and they became the first co-ed couple to go over together. This time instead of pickle barrels, Trotter used hot water tanks welded together,

• A French scientist named Georges Lemoine found that red phosphorus was not poisonous. A patent was filed on this method of matchmaking in 1898.

MATCHES cont’d • The Diamond Match Company purchased the patent and then, at the urging of President Taft, made the patent public domain so that all match manufacturers could use the formula without paying royalties. DIAMOND MATCH COMPANY • The increasing popularity of smoking coupled with the advent of gas for lighting and heat caused the demand for matches to skyrocket. Mechanized methods of matchmaking were needed. To solve this difficulty, the country’s largest manufacturers banded together in 1881 to form a single company, The Diamond Match Company. The best features of the machinery that each had developed individually were combined. MODERN MATCHMAKING • The machines that turn out Strike-Anywhere matches at the rate of more than 300 a second are about 60 feet long and two stories high. Wooden matches are made out of white pine or aspen wood. It takes an hour for a splint of wood to travel through the factory. • The matchbook became the “best read book in America” and the warning, “Close Cover Before Striking” became the most printed phrase in the history of the printed word. For 40 years, matchbooks were the most popular advertising medium in the nation. • Matchbooks are one of the most popular collectibles in the world. In the U.S. it’s the second most popular collecting hobby after stamps. People who collect them are called phillumenists, meaning ‘lovers of light.’

Notch Hill Town Hall’s First Annual Dog Show was held on Sunday June 30th ---- and it turned out to be a huge success! A variety of dogs came dressed for the occasion ! Congratulations to the winners and all the entrants. Every dog was so Special. Several demonstrations were presented and very well received. The Vernon RCMP gave an excellent description of their dog training program as well as answering questions from the audience. Bernie Quist, from Kelowna had a service dog, Jackson, trained by Pacific Assistance Dog Service. She gave a most interesting talk on how Jackson,her dog, assists her in her daily living.The Salmon Arm Agility Group set up a course of tunnels and jumping bars for their group of dogs to demonstrate their talents. There were a variety of vendors,and volunteers helped to serve refreshments in the hall. The show,s success can only be credited to the hard work of the volunteers,and the support of the sponsers and the people who brought their dogs to the show.Many lessons were learnt in the running of the show which will help in the organizing of next years event.

covered with Kevlar, and equipped with oxygen tanks – a contraption that weighed 900 lbs. and is reputed to have cost some $19,000. The barrel became trapped in a rock crevice at the base of the waterfall. Members of the fire department and the police department were able to reach the barrel and pop the hatch, releasing the two unharmed occupants. The barrel remained lodged in place for 9 days before being removed by a crane. Trotter later returned to reclaim the barrel, but he had to pay the costs of the rescue before they handed it over. • In 1989, Peter DeBernardi and Geoffrey Petkovich, Canadian residents of Niagara Falls, were the first people to go over the falls as a team, face to face in the same tenfoot steel barrel. They had known each other only a couple of months. DeBernardi’s original partner had chickened out and Petkovich took his place. The steel-plated barrel was equipped with oxygen, two-way radio equipment, and two plexiglass windows. It was painted with the slogan, “Don’t put yourself on the edge – Drugs Kill.” The team suffered only minor injuries and refused treatment. Petkovich, who had been drinking, emerged wearing only a necktie and cowboy boots. They were promptly arrested by the Niagara Parks Police and charged with infractions.

Tidbits of The Shuswap

Canadian Tid-bits ▶ In 1964, after 13 years of traveling the country, Tom Connors found himself in Timmins, Ontario, a nickel short of the price of a beer. The bartender offered to give him a beer if he’d play a few songs. That led to a 13-month contract to play at the hotel, which led to a weekly spot on CKGB radio, which led to eight 45-RPM records, which led to Stompin’ Tom Connors becoming one of Canada’s favorite folk singers.

▶ In 1885, Fred Coleman was out fishing when a frog jumped into his boat. He kept it as a pet, fed it well, and when it died, it weighed 19 kg (42 lbs). Fred’s Frog is now stuffed and residing in the YorkSunbury Historical Museum in

Remove the glass and lay them out on newspaper. Spray paint them all the same color and, when dry, frame and hang your favorites in a very cohesive grouping! Read on for more photo ideas.

Spend some time each day reviewing the pictures on your camera, and delete the redundant ones and photos that are obviously not keepers.” ◆ “When my sisters and I get together (there are five

of us), we each bring a flash drive loaded with about 50 good, recent family pictures. One sister is a technical whiz, and she puts all the pictures together and loads them back on the flash drives, labeled with the date. And then we all watch a picture slideshow together and share our stories.”

◆ Save your favorite family photos to a disk and give a copy to a trusted friend. That way, if anything should happen to your computer/home/etc., you’ll still have those pictures.

◆ “My mother-in-law has a digital photo frame, and about every six months we send her a new flash drive to plug into the back of it. She does not have a computer, so she enjoys the picture show and can go back to the old pictures as well whenever she wants just by plugging a different drive into the frame. What a great way to share photos with a different generation.”
