The Current

Sources: A Newly Discovered System Of Electrical Medication

The current is that moving electric essence which traverses the

circuit. The course of the current is always from the positive to the

negative. It leaves the machine at the positive post, where it enters

the cord which holds the positive electrode or pole. Thence it advances

around the circuit, going out from the opposite cord where that connects

with the negative post. The forward end of the current is its positive

end; the rear, of course, is its negative end. At its forward end it is

in its greatest volume. At its rear end the volume is least. At the

central point of its circuit there is the mean quantity--the

average volume. And because the positive and negative forces on either

side exactly balance each other upon the central point, therefore this

point is practically neuter--neither positive nor negative.
