Transcriber's Comments
This is an adaption of the electronic transcription made by Paul Hubbs
and Bob Gravonic. Using microfiche of the original (Canadian Institute
for Historical Microreproductions no. 42355) as a copy-text, I've made
corrections and added a considerable amount of material. Irregular
spellings in the original have been retained. Explanatory remarks
regarding numbering are enclosed in square brackets.

Young's Demonstrative Translation of Scientific Secrets;
A Collection of Above 500 Useful Receipts on a Variety of Subjects.
Printed by Rowsell & Ellis, Toronto, 1861.

The object of the present work is clearly announced in its title. It is to
collect within a small compass the instructions of experimental
knowledge upon a great variety of subjects which relate to the present
interests of man. It contains above five hundred genuine and practical
receipts, which have been compiled by the publisher with extreme
difficulty and expense. A reference to the list of subjects which the

work contains, will show that the publisher's researches have been
extensive, while a comparison of the work with others of the same
general character evinces patient labour, and cannot fail to give it
pre-eminence. While the track pursued is not new, it is more thorough,
and more easily followed than that marked out by any previous
compiler known to myself. The work contains not merely the outlines
on the subjects to which it refers, but, what appears to my own mind
one of its excellences, the full and clear explanations of these subjects.
To all classes of people, without exception, the work is of great value.
It is fit, on every account, that the publisher should be encouraged in
this production. The work is worthy the acceptance of all, and one
which every man may prize.

Any bunch of roses or flowers, or anything of the kind that you admire,
take the pattern of by placing them against a light of window glass,
then lay a piece of white paper over them, and through the latter you
will see the roses, &c. Now with a lead pencil take the pattern of the
roses, &c., on the paper; when you have them all marked, cut then out
with a scissors, so that you have a complete pattern of them. Now take
a piece of glass, whatever size your pattern requires, stick the pattern
on it with wafers, then paint the glass all over, except where the pattern
covers, with black paint, composed of refined lampblack, black enamel,
copel varnish and turpentine, mixed. Now let this dry, then take off
your patterns and paint your roses, flowers, &c., with tube paints,
mixed with demar varnish, so that your roses, &c., may be, in a manner,
transparent. Paint your large roses red, some of the smaller ones yellow,
or any colour to suit your taste. Paint one side of the leaves a darker
shade of green than the other, which will make the picture appear as
though the sun was shining on it. When this painting is dry, take silver
or gold foil, (gold is best,) wrinkle it up in your hand then nearly
straighten it, and cover the back of the glass all over with it; over the
large roses let the wrinkles be larger, over the small ones smaller, &c.;
then lay a piece of stiff paper, the size of the glass, over the foil, and a
piece of very thin board again over this; have it
