Peculiar Entertainment That Was
Popular in ths ’60s.
“Sleep fasting matches, before the
law put a stop to them, took place fre
quently In this country," said a spe
cialist In insomnia. “Yes, back in the
'60a and '60s sloep-faating was as popu- '
lar a form of sport as football. Cham
pion sleep festers were idolized by the
girls In hoop8klrta and waterfalls. The
ordinary youth who had to sleep once
la 24 hours wasn't one, two three I4
those days W. C. Woodford of San
Francisco was the champion of all the
sleep rasters. In the famous contest
of 1860 this man kept awake for 168
hours. 48 minutes—over a week. He
was a little, thin man of a nervous
temperament. Henry K. Jackson of
Detroit held the nest best record
144 hours 17 mlautes. Third came
Adolph Mueller of Milwaukee, whose
record was 142 hours 67 minutes.
These men are all dead now. Why
were sleep fasts so popular with our
fathers? Resides their unhealthful
ness, they were tame beyond belief.
What, when you come to think of It,
could be tamer than merely watchiug
* lot of men keep awake?"
Really Amusing Blunders of Which
Record Has Been Kept.
An author who has a scrapbook de
voted to typographical errors was
showing the articlea to a friend. One
Item concerned a dance. The word
"bonnier” was misprinted, with this
deplorable result : “There was no bon
ier ladles present than the mayor’s
own daughters, and this fact was
further emphasized by the perfect
fit of the shepherdess costumes they
wore." A country paper, after telling
how a cow got In front of a train,
said: "As the safest course, under the
circumstances, the engineer put on
full steam, dashed Into the cow and
literally cut It Into two calves.” A
New York society editor, misprinting
the word "chill," published this state
ment: “Mrs. Astor was unavoidably
absent from the reception, being kept
84 home by a bad child."
