Electric Currents. “As, a short time since, I stood in a library of scientific books and glanced around me at the works of the great masters in physics, my mind wandered back to the time when the apparatus for a complete course of lectures on the subject of electricity consisted of a piece of amber and a few light bodies to be attracted by it. From that time until now, when we stand in a magnificent laboratory with elaborate and costly apparatus in great part devoted to its study, how greatly has the world changed and how our science of electricity has expanded both in theory and practice until, in the one case, it threatens to include within itself nearly the whole of physics, and in the other to make this the age of electricity.”
