ns Soon after the opening of the Vionna
I Exposition in 1873 a ctreess worknl:tn
er picked up the ends of a couple tf
wires which he found tr;iiling upon the
ground. IIe fastened them in the
tc terminals of a dynanm.) to which lie
lc thought they belonged, while they
r. were really attached to another dyna
mo that was running in another imi t
rt of the ground. The dynamo to which
he fastened the wi re i was not running,
but as soon as the wires were plceLd
b1e in its terminals it revolved as if a
tI steam engino was driving it. Thus
