Excerpt from Electrical Railroading, or Electricity as Applied to Railroad Transportation
Exactly what electricity is we do not know, and indeed a practical man always dealing with the useful effects of electricity, applying these to the necessities and for the comfort of mankind, finds little time to wonder what electricity is.
We will omit the almost unanswerable question What is -and proceed to the question.
Question I. What is meant when a person talks about electricity? Answer. There are certain effects which we believe to be due to electricity, so that when a person observes any one of these things, he at once declares that there is electricity present.
