The water-proofing of cloth, so uhi-
versa! today, was unknown twenty-
five years ago. In 1890, Thomas Fearn-
ly ’ 'ey. of Bedford, took out the first
patent for the process known as “era-
venettu." He got the idea from an ac
cident in a Yorkshire dye house. Cer
tain materials had been wrongly dyed
and the workmen were directed to
wash out the surplus logwood color
with alum. After the material had
been dried the improvement was so
marked that the dyer ordered a repe
tition of the alum washing. The cloth
was sent to the wetttng machtne, but
the workmen found that they could
not wet it It prosed through the wa
ter and came out dry. Thus was
the discovery made that cloth could be
water-proof and yet remain porous
