Turning the Tables



Essay, Drollery


Spiritualism, Electricity

    Discusses 'the entertainment of turning the tables'. Insists that 'the circulation of the table is rather intimately connected with the circulation of the bottle' and that it results from 'that species of electricity, of which—although glass is said to be a non-conductor—the glass and the bottle are the principal agents'.
