At the lights the hot source is spliced to the black wire at each fixture box, at the last fixture it is spliced to the black wire running to the common on SW1. The neutral from the source is connected to each light fixture with a pigtail and run on to the next light.
A rheostat, or dimmer, makes it possible to vary the current flowing to a light fixture thereby varying the intensity of the light. The dimmer switch will have stranded wires that must be sliced to the solid cable wiring with a pigtail. A device like this should only be used with an incandescent light fixture and not with a ceiling fan or other motor. See wiring a speed controller for wiring a rheostat to control fan speed.
In this updated diagram 3-conductor cable runs between the receptacle and switch, and the red cable wire is used to carry the hot source to the bottom terminal on the switch. The neutral from the source is passed through to the switch box using the white wire and in this diagram the white wire is capped with a wire nut.
Instead of terminals, a 3 way dimmer has 4 wires coming out of the casing: one common, two travelers and one ground wire. The common wire is usually black and the travelers red. In any case, the traveler wires will usually be the same color to distinguish them from the common wire.
