Daniel Deronda Hemingray has been entertaining his brothers Ralph and Robert during the holidays. It has been some time since they moved to Muncie, and they have not been equal to Cincinnati's great advancement. Still Dan's many friends can imagine his surprise when Ralph stopped him at the sight of an electric car and asked, "Dan, what makes tehm go?"

Researcher notes:Daniel Hemingray's middle name was Carroll, not Deronda. Daniel Deronda is a novel by George Eliot first published in 1876. In the novel Deronda is portrayed as an intelligent, light-hearted and compassionate young man. It is assumed by the reference above, that the Deronda term was referring to Daniel Hemingray's personality.
