In those days, the electricity has come to so close connection with our household that, when we think of the question of how to live, we are impossible to do it, without touching the problem of electricity. If the indication of the national power be made by some measure based upon the unit of a household. we must say that the home electricity, which is now being practiced, is the greatest work that will influence strong revolution upon our history of civilization.<BR>When the practical application of electricity is made for industrial use, the advantage or disadvantage can easily understood by such kind of the consumers from the point of amount of fee of electricity charged to them. But in case of home electricity, its advisability can not be judged merely from the above mentioned point, which will cause to make it difficult to see the universal diffusion of such electrification.<BR>Even if we let the things slide their course, it is evident that some time in future the home electricity will be practiced, but according to the present management of business of scientific organization, we must plan, under the positive policy, to shorten this age of transition to the largest degree with the highest efficiency. This is the reason for the necessity of establishing proper policy.<BR>There may be many means of leading things from the age of propaganda to the age of realization, such as distribution of printed matters, lecture meetings, demonstration, exposition, etc., all of which, however, can not be of absolute effect. But, the studies of the advanced nations worked out a very effectual means which involves all the strong points of the above said old means, and fills the defects thereof. This means is the opening of the electric home, and is being practiced in the Unite States so frequently and so successfully as almost 200 electric homes have already been opened since and as 35, 000 earnest observers have been attracted to each opening in advance.<BR>The first trial of this electric home show in Japan is the one that was opened in Chofu in the last October, of which I am going the following informations hereunder.<BR>1) Strong point of Electric Home as propagander for home electricity.<BR>2) Scheme of Electric Home.<BR>4) Ratio of electric equipment expense and the construction cost.<BR>5 Selection of wiring and accessories.<BR>6) Guide of Electric Home.<BR>7) Session and close hour.<BR>8) Adjustment of visitors.<BR>9) Treatment of visitors in party.<BR>10) Method of propaganda.<BR>11) Conclusion.
