This is a chance for quick action on
the part of communities having several

Simple Experiment May Lead
. Them to Tap the Wrong
Wire Ouch Dead
Youthful electricians are warned not
to follow diagrams given in stories in
popular magazines relative to electrical
experiments as they ore likely to seize
the wrong wire sometime and then
some slow music that Willie won't hear.
A story Appeared last week in n maga
zine of national circulation which told
how wires might be tapped and mes
sages sent out in the Morse code over
electric light wires. Diagrams wore
given and any youthful electrician
might be tempted to try it once any
way. Since the amateur is as likely to
to get hold of a wire carrying 20,000
volts ns he is to tap an incandescent
circuit of 110 volts tho Public Service
commission engineers have issued a
statement relative to the case:
The article entitled "The Third
Light", purports to convey certain in
formation based upon prncticnl elec
trical standards and practices. In
this, however, it is in error, ns there
appears a drawing of equipment uud
circuit arrangement which is mislead
ing nnd not in conformity to the
thought expressed by the writer of the
The dnngers surrounding an experi
ment of this kind by the amateur elec
trician are many.
The general regulations governing
overhead and underground construction
of the Public Service commission of
Oregon, Section 14, require the ground
ing of all neutral wires of low poten
tial secondary) distributing systems,
and, where the neutral is not accessible,
the grounding of one wire of the sec
ondary or commercial lighting or power
circuit. These regulations became ef
fective October 1; 1913, and previous
to that dote a great many installations
of transformers with secondary (110-
220 nnd other voltages) lighting and
power circuits had been installed with
out ground connections. Therein lies
the real danger to the youthful experi
menter, for, should nnd ungrounded
transformer secondary or house light
ing wire be used to make the Third

er be faulty or leaky, the person mak
ing the experiment might receive the

that the experiment would -tnil' unless

The principle involved in the "Third
Light" experiment while it appears in
tricate, is very simple, nnd iB nothing
more than the substitutinc of a ground
connection for the middle conductor of
a circuit of two lights in sorics. It iB
therefore obvious that Biich nn oxjieri

small electric lights, such as aro found
in "flash lights" and without t'ne in
