A 1907 View of the Future of Electricity

I've put a six-page article "The Age of Electric Servants" online at http://oldhightech.blogspot.com/2012/07/the-future-of-electricity-as-seen-in.html

Originally published in THE WORLD'S WORK for July, 1907, it does NOT discuss robots, but does mention solutions to the labor problem. Many interesting early approaches to electric power and motion.

Feel free to use it in your Steampunk work; tell you friends about it; &etc.
