PALACE OF ELECTRICITY.
The remarkable advance in electrical engineering and the new discoveries in the sciences during the last ten years made the exhibition in the Palace of Electricity one of the most interesting among all the wonders at the Exposition. The latest, most ingenious dynamos and motors and new electric machinery for an endless multitude of uses were seen in full operation. The treatment of diseases by the employment of electricity, of the X-ray apparatus and the Finsen light were demonstrated. The wonderful strides electro-chemistry has made were shown, also the progress in electric lighting and the adaptation of electric power to a thousand problems of human activity.
The view of this palace from the Cascades, across the green lawns, fine trees, statuary and the water, was one of the most enchanting on the exposition grounds.
