Excerpt from The Town of Shrewsbury: Its Location, Advantages and Attractions as a Place of Residence and for Business
What is electricity? This is what no fellah can find out. The nearest that any one ever came to it, was the college student who hadn't learned his lesson, and when asked this question, said he did know, but had forgotten it. Unfortunately his memory has Since failed. We class ourselves with the know-nothings on this point, but we propose to try the Simplest first - the Storage Battery - but in doing this we take no sides with any of the con tending forces in the mighty struggle that is going on for supremacy. We don'l know, but we think the storage battery has a great future before it, and if this proves to be true, all who have storage bat tery patents will bring out their systems. We have studied some what relating to the contest between stationary power and locomotives just sixty years ago, in England, on the Liverpool and Manchester railway, when George Stephenson came out triumphant, and if we can aid in a similar contest regarding electric power, we are strongly disposed so to do.
