A popular-science magazine in the tradition, this title covered all the exciting advances in anything connected with the electrical side, including telephones, radio, lighting, and heating. It was pretty early, namely 1908...but electricity was already becoming mainstream for consumers by that point. Published by the Popular Electricity Publishing Company of Chicago, Illinois; Henry Walter Young, Editor. Later issues had a title change to THE WORLD'S ADVANCE. In July of 1914 it was merged into ELECTRICIAN AND MECHANIC to become MODERN ELECTRICS AND MECHANICS; this in turn was merged into POPULAR SCIENCE in October of 1915.
Google has a few volumes of this title online, but they are much easier to find on the Internet Archive.
