    Discusses news that a 'French savant' has discovered a way of artificially ageing wine by electricity. Suggests that 'stingy people' will be 'ready purchasers of "choice electro-crusted port", or "fine old cheap voltaic claret"', but warns that the premature ageing of wine might have a similar effect on the drinker.
