DANGER IN INCANDESCENT.
Avoid Turnlnft on Lights While Standing
on Damp Floors.
' rof- Dcorgo H. Morse of Imelon
gives tho following advice concerning
the handling of incandescent lights:
"I think it is not generally known j
that in an alternating system of incan
descent lighting, it is exceedingly dan
gerous to stand on a damp or collar
lloor and attempt to turn on an incan
ueseom lamp m the ordinary manner.
Probably more lives have been lost
through electric shocks in this manner
than in any other way. It is even
more dangerous to stand in a bath tub
and turn on an incandescent iampor to
touch a faucet with one hand while op
crating a lump with the other. If
the circuits have been newlv installed
nml im' '" l''-fcct condition as regards
"sbrtloii both in street and house

feared in the act of turning on a lump

lation of electric wires, thereby caus
ing the high potential distributing sys
tem of the streets to become directly
connected in transformers to the low
potential or house wiring circuits.
The fact of the existence of such a
break down is seldom known since it
usually docs not interfere in any way
with the operation of the circuits, the
death of some uniformed person being
often the first indication of affairs
which can be applied and should bo re
quired by municipalities. Klectrio
light managers are however loath to
make suitable provision for public
safety in this regard due to the slight
increase in expense thereby entailed."
