That's 1903, by the way
"A bespectacled man quickly strode upon the stage, boldly announcing that his latest whirly-gig would make the mere act of merely sitting quietly in place an entertaining treat for tots. With a mere flick of a switch, this "electric" chair would flood the body of the young shavers in question with pleasant jolts of white energy. To demonstrate, the man placed an able-bodied assistant onto the high seat. With great flourish, the chair was activated via lever. Within moments, the white-shirted right hand man was set a-flame, further verifying my personal belief that electricity is the work of the devil he-self."
It's quite amusing.
