Excerpt from The Electric Home: A Standard Ready Reference Book
In this book, which is the outgrowth of a meeting with an Old friend who sought my aid in modernizing his home, I am attempting to provide you with an effortless means Of learning the simple facts everyone should... know about the modern applications of electricity in the home. Its prime Object is to Show the home owner how to derive the greatest benefits from electric service through proper selection, installation and maintenance of equipment, and how to employ this service in the most practical and economical way.
Ever since the inception Of the first domestic electrical appliance many years ago, it has been my chief hobby to go adventuring in leisure hours ever further afield into the practical benefits of home electrification. The result is that my friends regard my modest country place as something of a marvel in modern comfort and convenience. Impelled by motives of economy, as well as by a desire to know the whys and wherefors of this supposedly difficult subject, I have directed the little work involved myself, with suggestions from my boys. It has required a small amount of time, some inexpensive materials and equipment and a little imagination, but no unusual ability. What I have learned to do, every man, woman and child of high school education can accomplish ust as easily.
