The incandescent Lights

The following story appeared in The Ypsilantian of Thursday, November 26, 1891.

The Ypsilanti Elecric Company works are running successfully, with 250 lights now connected, and 80 or 100 more to be added this week. The Hawkins House is now being wired and will be lighted by electricity in a few days. The dynamo is now run only until midnight, but Mr. Rorison expects the business will next week justify running all night, and that within thirty days he will be suppling current for 450 lights. The engine takes steam from the Ainsworth & Cole's boiler. The incandescent lamps furnish the best light in the world.
