Hennepin County Bepublicans Having a Hard Time to Straighten Out Their Finances. The Exposition of 1887 to Last from Aug/ 31 to Oct. 15— Col King Resigns. *> Prof. Porter's Agricultural Report a Credit to Him-- Discussing •** Xewsboys' Home. A Good Racing Programme •- The Creditors of Mr. Uush—Th* Xewsles' Christmas. ♦'MUST SETTEE OR DlE.'' Republicans Consider Their Com mittee's Financial Strait*. "I tell you. gentlemen, we must pay our debts and square the committee or the party will go to smash in the spring." A score of earnest, thoughtful and con sistent Republicans had assembled on Mon day evening, and one of their number had declared himself of this portentious prophecy. The cry that had gone up from the creditors of the last county committee had become so loud and general, since a re cent publication in the Globe, that the wise men and leaders of the party had as sembled to see what could and should be done about it. As far as could then be as certained the liabilities of the committee were between ST. 000 and SS.OOO. though a member "thought they might be squared for 000." M —*^. -How much did that campaign cost? de manded a non-partisan Republican present. ••We contracted about §20,000 worth of debts and paid about $12,000 of them," an swered a member, after some little figuring. "What became of this money?" queried an- Treasurer Jamison seemed to regard this as an insinuation against him, and at once grew red-headed with wrath, uutil the querist explained that lie only meant to in quire to what uses such a sum could be put. "After all," said another, "the campaign cost no more than the last spring campaign." which astounding statement was received with a general look of incredulity. It was the opinion of all the prominent Republi cans present that the obligations must be met, in some way or other, and a commit tee was finally appointed to make a canvass for funds. C. A. Pillsbnry and R. B. Lan-don each volunteered $500, while smaller sums were pledged by several others. It was stated at the meeting that the state Republican committee was very much in debt, though it had paid $3,000 to the Hennepin county committee. "This was a great county committee and did great wort," said an earnest, thoughtful and consistent Republican, as the meeting ended, "but it ought to pay its bills. Here is a poor printing firm that furnished 15,000 postal cards, for which it had to put up 150. It oueht to be paid to save the committee from everlasting disgrace." A gentleman who attended the meeting yesterday said it was "a regular h— l of a lime," in which charges and countercharges were freely made, and in which Loren Fletcher came in for a sound roasting. Said he: . . One of the items of expense created a little row. It seems that Free Lane end R. G. Evans were booked for a rally at Albert Lea and wanted it to make a good showing. So they chartered a special train on the Minne apolis & St. Lous road and took a Minneapolis crowd down to swell their turnout, all at county expense. Another thing developed was that in spite of the prominent part Loren Fletcher took in running things and dictating nominations, he only contribute! $250. My word for it, it was a great old meeting. -Those bills must be paid or the party is ruined' seemed to be the popular retrain. THE TIME FIXED. The Next Exposition Will Open Aug. H3l and Close Oct. 15. At the weekly meeting of the Exposition directors, yesterday. Col. W. S. King offered his resignation as director, on the ground that he had not time to give the duty that attention it should receive. He made some very sensible and timely re- i__ _...,„«,.., :..r. fiirDr»fnrc Tuhn firmer tn maiKS CUIICCIIIUIr, uuvtiviij .. ..^ _.»..(, • the position without really intending to de vote their time to it. The matter of time lor the Exposition of 18S7 coming up, the discussion was opened by A. J. Blethen, who urged tMtfttie Exposition remain open at least two weeks into October. S. C. Gale moved as a substitute that the next Exposition open Aug. 24 and remain open six weeks and lour days, closing Oct. S, making the time forty days exclusive of Sundays. Manager Palmer seconded the motion. President Washburn thought it better to extend the Exposition into October rather than begin too soon in August. G. A. Brackett also favored the later date. He had spent the last two weeks of the last Exposition in the Red Kiver valley, ami the complaint there was general that the show closed too soon. Mr. Gale's substitute was lost. Maj. Heffel finger's amendment to the original motion, fixing the dates as Aug. SI and Oct. 15. was adopted, and the time is therefore fixed for the next Exposition. It will open Aug. 31, con six weeks and close Oct 15. Col. King's resolution was adopted and his resignation accepted. The result of this resolution will probably be either to insure a full attendance of the directors at meet ings or will bring forth several resignations from members who cannot attend to the business of the board. STATE EXPERIMENTAL FARM. Tbe First Annual Report of I'rof. E. D. torter, the Superintendent. Advance sheets of the report of the su perintendent of the experimental farm of the state university have been received at this office. If the sample is a fair indica tion of the report entire, Prof. E. D. Por ter, the superintendent, is deserving of the thanks of the entire agricultural commun ity. The report is the first one issued by the college of agriculture. It has long been a question among the farmers of the state whether they were getting any benefit from their experimental farm. Prof. Porter has, during the past three years worked quietly, paying little attention to adverse criticisms which have come from disappointed politi cians, but working steadily to put the ex perimental farm in first-class order for the purposes for which it is intended. He has succeeded in making a beautiful farmstead, and during the past season began a series of experiments which- are carefully chron icled in the forthcoming report. The sheets received contain a careful and easily understood account of experiments to show the feeding value of bran. Prof. Porter presents the matter in the following terse paragraph : lt is estimated that it requires 75.000 head of cattle annually to furnish Minneapolis and St. Paul with beef, and that at least 65.000 of them are raised and fattened outside of Min nesota, while millions of tons of good wild hay are allowed to go to waste, and 200,000 tons of feeding stuff are exported to Eastern points. * * * The question naturally arises, cannot Minnesota raise her own stock on her own prairies and prepare it for the market with the waste products of her own mill-, and thus keep at home a large amount of capital now sent out of the state? The report is a most valuable one throughout and every farmer and horti culturalist in the state should secure one. They can be obtained by addressing Prof. £. D. Porter, State Experimental Farm, St. Anthony Park, Minn. THE NEWSBOYS' HOME. Better Facilities Needed—Policy of Handling. Boys. An unusually large attendance at the j meeting held at Mrs. Walker's residence yesterday afternoon manifested the inter est felt in the newsboys' home. The com mittee on by-laws were not prepared to re port and the meeting was devoted to a gen eral discussion of matters pertaining to the home. The building at present used Is totally inadequate to the purpose, and an effort will be made to secure more com modious quarters. Regarding the policy ■which should be pursued by the manage ment with reference to the treatment of transient boys, it was found .there were several opinions. The prevalent one seemed to be that the reading room should be orjeii throughout the day and evening for the free use of all newsboys and boot- j blacks, and that they should be encouraged , to avail themselves of its use. Some of the directors seem to imagine that ••newsies" can be bound by the same lines with which they manage their own children, and these have not yet fully comprehend that, if the home is to do the work for which it was projected, all the boys, especially those whose surroundings have been most unfavorable, must be brought within its influence, ana iron bound measures are not the kind to win them. The committee having in charge the Washington rink benefit reported the net receipts of the entertainment as $150. THE SHELTERING ARMS. Annual Meeting of the Hoard off Directors. The Sheltering Arms association met in the guild room of St. Mark's church yes- ; terday morning, and the following officers j were elected for the coming year: Presi dent, Mrs. S. S. Breed, St. Paul; vice j president, Mrs. H. A. Towne; treasurer, Mrs. S. B. Meader; secretary, Mrs. Miili- I gan; corresponding secretary, Mrs. Fair bairn; trustees. Mrs, Saunders and Mrs, Pitts, St. Paul; Mrs. P. E. Lockwood, Mrs. C. C. Secombe, Mrs. I. Hodgson, Mrs. McCullurn. Mrs. McDougall. Mis. Hawthorne; advisory board, H. A. Towne. P. E. Lockwood, F. B. Dodge, Rev. E. S. Thomas, of St. Paul, and Gordon E. Cole, of Faribault The Sheltering Arms is a dioceasan institution for the care of orphans, half orphans and the children of parents unable to support them. While under the patronage of the Episcopal church, its ben efits are not confined to that denomination, children of any or no religious training or parentage being received. The institution is located at the corner of Twenty seventh avenue north and Twelfth street, and is in charge of an ex cellent matron. Miss Wilcox, formerly of Faribault. The secretary's report shows that there have been fifty-two inmates dur ing the year, and there are now twenty nine young children ranging in age trom 1 month to 10 years. Scarlet fever and diph theria have visited the home during the year, but only one death has occurred. This good showing is due in a great meas ure to the prompt and efficient services of Dr. P. M. Hall, who resides near the Shel tering Arms, and has donated all medical aid during the year. Rev. Prosser. of St. Andrew's parish, has conducted services every Sunday afternoon in the chapel of the institution. Support comes entirely from voluntary contributions. During the past year the parishes throughout the state have given ihonev and supplies, which have been very thankfully received by the managers. A gentleman in England, learning through a missionary paper of the needs of the in stitution, sent $100. As the benefits of the Sheltering Arras are widespread, it is hoped the management will be liberally aided throughout the year by donations of sup plies of all sorts, as well as money. The smith Robbery. George McCue, Samuel Cain and Joseph Doyle arrested by Detective Hoy for the theft of jewelry valued at $400 trom the residence of H. Y. Smith, were exam ined in the municipal court yesterday morn ing before Judge Mahoney. McCue and Cain were each held to the grand jury in $500, the former for robbery and the latter for receiving stolen goods. From the state ment made by McCue to the court it appears that he was at the home of a sick woman near the Smith residence. Mrs. Smith called to offer aid, and told McCue that if he would call at her home she would give him some articles of clothing. He did so, and while Mrs. Smith was making up a bundle for him he returned her kindness by carrying off her watch and jewelry.even taking some articles of jewelry that belonged to a de ceased daughter of Mrs. Smith. He claimed to have been intoxicated at the time. The case against Doyle was dismissed. Detective Sullivan and Officer Shepherd last evening arrested another man supposed to have been implicated in the stealing of jewelry from the evidence of H. Y. Smith. A portion of the stolen property was found on his person. Mffll The Newsies' Christinas Tree. Mrs. Fan's store is for the time being changed into a shrine sacred to Nick, for last night Santa appeared there to a hun dred and fifty newsboys, and to-night he will have as an audience tne uanu oi nope Sunday school."' The boys put on their best behavior last night, and after a story had been read by Mrs. Seymour Van Cleve, the venerable Claus made his appearance. In size and shape he very much resembled E. H. Baker, but in make-up he was a verit able Kris Krinele. A pair of mittens, a sack ot candy and a ticket to the holiday dinner were given each "newsy," and Kris had been commissioned to present to Mrs. Farr a banner-shaped plush mirror, together with letters of Christmas cheer from the happy family at the Newsboy's home. After a jolly good time the boys departed, leaving their kind hostess and her fellow workers with hearty New Year good wishes — and plenty of work in the way of clean ing house. Good Racing rrograuime. On Friday evening next (New Year eve) the following attractive programme will be offered by Manager Wallace at the Wash ington rink, Minneapolis: A twenty-mile ; professional handicap bicycle race, purse SIOO, entries and handicaps being as fol lows: W. M. Woodside, scratch; Thomas W. Eck. scratch; W. .7. Morgan, 220 yards; Albert Schock, GCO yards. This race brings the men on about even terms, and some tall riding must be done by the winner. Besides the above there will be a five-mile amateur race, in which the four fastest amateurs in the Northwest will com pete, namely: Savage. Stockdale. Schroe der and Hale; and a twenty-mile race (Star bicycles only) for the Star championship of the Northwest. The races will commence at Sp. in. sharp, and all lovers of the sport should wind up the year by attending this tournament. Death of v.. R. Stevens. E. R. Stevens of the firm of Crocker, Fiske & Co.. died at Tipton. La., yester day of pneumonia. Mr. Stevens has been a prominent head miller in Minneapolis for several years, and a large circle of friends will be much surprised to hear of his death. He had been in ill-health, but no alarm was felt regarding him. A few weeks ago he left the city to rest and recuperate. While visiting in Tipton he caught a cold which resulted in pneumonia. The remains will arrive in this city this morning. The time of the funeral will be announced to-morrow, lt will probably take place from the Park Avenue Presbyterian church, of which Mr. Stevens was a prominent member. Husk's Bank. About a dozen representatives of the eastern creditors of V. G. Hush, whose bank recently suspended payment, are in the city. Yesterday afternoon was spent in making an examination of the bank, and in the evening a conference was held at the West — with what result is not known ! further than that a positive decision was j not reached. Mr. Hush and his attorneys. Judge Torrence and J. G. Wooley, were on hand to give what information was I desired, and a number of leading bankers were also in consultation. It is not likely that any definite determination will be ar rived at for a day or two. MATTERS OF AMUSEMENT. "Nanon" is catching on in pleasing style j at the Grand, and the beauties of the opera ! are being fully appreciated by the lovers of j sprightly music. Last night's audience was I an improvement over the first night,' in size : as well as warmth and enthusiasm. "Na- : non" will be given at to-day's matinee and again to-night. ; Kate Castleton In "Crazy Patch" takes Clara Morris' dates for the first half of next week at the Grand. J. W. McKinney, the veteran advance j agent; is in the city, representing Richard i Mansfield, who will appear for the first I time in Minneapolis next week in '"Prince j Karl," the comedy sensation which had a run j of 150 nights in New York. Mr. McKinney , looks upon his star as the phenomenon of the age. who is but 28 years old, and be- 1 sides being a great comedian, speaks seven i languages, sings in four voices, plays a ! half-dozen musical instruments, writes I cleverly, is an oarsman, a sprinter and has j numerous other accomplishments. Mans- ■ field created the part of Koko in the i BT. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, WEDNESDAY MOBOTNG, DECEMBER r29,M88& •'Mikado." and sang the part of Sir Joseph in "Pinafore" four years on the continent. All .children visiting : the dime museum j Friday will be given a holiday president ' ;..';. 1.1- SORTS. Senator Sabin offered a big reward if his interview should be correctly reported in the Tribune.' . He offered to buy two papers. He ; was thus reckless because he knew he would never, under the terms, be ctlled upon to j make the expenditure.'' ' / !l Now that he has gone out of the business, i ex-Inspector has' been telling, a re porter what he knows of Minnesota wheat grading. The Market Record says: "It is f pretty generally believed that Gov. McGill : will drop some of the present members of the • state warehouse commission. Mr. Burdick; mourns ever the probability of a change, and ■ said that nobody denies the intelligence or honesty of the prestent commission- : ore.' ' If it is meant- by intelligence I that ; they- have a large • fund of ' information on the subject of grain; grading that might be utilized for the benefit J of the people, then Mr. Burdick is clearly I wrong in saying that nobody doubts their in- ; telligence,' etc. That they know more about i grain grading and what is necCed to perfect ■ the warehouse law than they did when ap- : pointed, no one will strictly question, but ! that they have acquired that practical knowl- | edge of what is needed to bring the opera- ' tions of the law up to tho highest excellence i obtainable there are a great many people that , doubt. The late inspector is evidently in a tremor, the fear being that Minneapolis or the grangers or possibly both may want an j amended grain law. Why that should so se riously affect the ex-inspector as to induce him to seek an interviewer to spread his opin ions is not quite plain. There are some ex- I cellent features in the law as it stands, but it should be amended in several points this win ter. ' .-'^j ■ The West house, out on Shingle creek, evi dently is Ja .pleasant place to put up, if ap pearances can be ... believed. Yesterday six men who had served one term were released, and at night were back at the . lock-up, ready to be sent out again in the morning. 'It was amusing to hear Free P. Lane while I trying a case yester.dav. refer to the saloons • as "gin mills. Vo It calls to mind that this able i lawyer stated during the last campaign that, he looked upon whisky as a great, enemy of j mankind, and said he believed in . put- | ting it down as rapidly as possible. The i jugs and bottles reposing .in Lane's office j must contain ink, or else Free is in danger of j becoming a "miserable example." • A new word has been coined. Last evening \ a prominent Grand Army man stated that he had just come from a "sorrowfication" meeting. A Minneapolis firm of printers bought and printed for the Republican County commitiee 15,000 postal cards to be used in notifying Re eublicans in this city that they were not reg istered. Every.Republican who received one of ih'se should contribute I cent and send it to E. J. Davenport, the chairman of the Re publican County committee, to pay off this debt, as the committee is bankrupt. Since Loren Fletcher, has returned home the Republican County committee hopes to pay 50 cents on the dollar. This will be good news to the many heelers of the G. O. P. who have been forced to sustain life on free lunches since the committee suspended pay ments. The value ef Minnehaha falls as assessed by the state park appraisers is $80.00. From letters received from the land of the Nile, our Thomas Lowry has probably con cluded that it is easier for a carnal to go through the eye of a needle than lor him to drive one. Mayor Ames yesterday received from Hon. W. E." English, the exalted grand ruler of the B. P. O. Elks, his appointment as district deputy exalted grand ruler or the jurisdic tion of Minnesota.

Carlensen pleaded guilty before Judge Young yesterday to the charge of sell ing liquor on Sunday and paid $10 each. The case of S. Myers against John Eicher, to recover about $900 alleged to be due as borrowed money, was heard before Judge K»a yesterday afternoon. The case was in teresting only in the fact that Freeman P. Lane and John Long were the attorneys on opposite sides. What they did not call each other was not worth mentioning. Marriage licenses were issued yesterday to George E. thenehon and Belle L. Coe. Christ Holthe and Mariam Johnson, John Thorson and Lena Peterson, William Blocker and Maggie Johnson, John R. Chute and Emma Chase, 0. H.

The Farmers' & Mechanics' Savings bank, which, a short time ago was rumored to be in a shaky condition, has declared a dividend of 5 per cent, on all sums which have been on deposit three months or over. Those who had money, on deposit are glad now that they did not draw it out. Gen. Logan's death has revived public in terest in the battie of Atlanta, where he was a conspicuous officer. The panorama has been very largely attended during the past two days, and every one asks where Gen. Losrau is located in the scene. Old soldiers nil many reminiscences of Logan in connec tion with the battle, And all speak of him in terms of commendation and love. The Sunday ; school of St. Mark's church held its ; annual Christmas festival last night at Curtiss' hall: Yesterday was Holy Inno cents day, so that the time was peculiarly ap propriate for a children's celebration. A large Christmas tree held boxes of candy for, | all, and these, with oranges, constituted the j gifts. After the tree had 'been : denuded of its sweets, dancing for the young people and all sorts of games for the little folks made up an evening thoroughly enjoyable to all pres ent.

New York Mail and Express. Happening to wander into the bar of one of the fashionable up- town restaurants a few nights ago a reporter met the proprie tor and shook hands with him. Mr. is a man who has risen from the ranks. He has been bell boy, bartender and pro prietor in turn; has kept billiard-tables, restaurants and hotels, all of the first-class, and has seen the great men of the country pass in review before him. Apart from his natural intelligence and the very fair education he received for a start, his con tact with statesmen, journalists, authors, actors and public men generally has devel oped in him the penetration and powers of observation so necessary to a successful business man in his line. "You are looking for news, eh, and can't find any? If I had leisure I could furnish you with a column of matter." "Take leisure, then, and tell me what the favorite drinks are of some of the prominent men of the country. You have seen them all?" "Most of them. . Well, suppose we com mence with Mark Twain. He is undoubt edly a prominent man. I understand Mr. Clemens poses as a strict temperance man in the domestic circle. Nevertheless, if 1 had a dollar for every whisky, straight he has swallowed at my bar I might retire from business. Old rye used to be his weakness. When I was a bartender at the Manhattan Club I saw most of the humorists and literati of the day. Petro leum V. Nashby used to affect neat whisky. It seemed to inspire him, though I didn't think he needed much inspiration. Flor ence, the actor, took ponies of brandy, and Barney Williams oysters and ale. To my mind beer is not a Christian drink. It con duces to melancholy, and I have no doubt those occasional articles in the Times and Evening Post predicting blue ruin to the country are written by unhappy mortals under the influence of beer. "You have heard of Chris Buckley, the San Francisco politician? He is a great man. It is he who taught me to make a drink fit for the gods out of port wine and a few other Ingredients. He calls them sangarees, and none drink them with more relish than he. Dave Higgins, another Pacific-slope man. takes a mixture of vile compounds, of which brandy is the chief. I don't like brandy. Artemus Ward? I remember him well. It was glorious ,to hear him talk when in the humor, though he used to play some annoying practical iokes at times. He took his whisky like an honest man. Artemus rushed into the bar one night in a state of wild disorder. - " 'Quick, quick!', he cried, in apparent agony. 'A bottle of your strongest whisky; I've been bitten by a rattlesnake.' "The terrified bar-tender handed him a quart bottle of Guinness' stout " 'Run, now, and bring me a bottle of rum and a jar of cider.' "When the bartender retvrned with the \ rum and cider, ' he saw Artemus take an . empty bottle from his mouth, seemingly after draining it. He then took hold of the rum and cider, placing them in a.. bas ket, and crying, 'I'm off for a doctor,' ran i out as rapidly and as wildly as he had en- , tered. "Of course he paid for them next day. He and a few congenial spirits were having a jollficatlon at one of their rooms, and that was Ward's way of contiibuting. .• James : RedDath is partial to hot Irish, sometimes Scotch, but the former Is his favorite bever- ': age. The deeper he drinks the more serious and philosophical he grows. In this respect he : resembles many of : our literary, men. : Hubert O. Thompson was addicted to sour mash, ' which, In my opinion, was a mistake, as mashes muddle the intellect. Mayor Grace is fond of beer in all varieties, includ ing lager and half-and-half. Cleveland is not particular about his drinks, and . that is oho ,? reason .'v-. why ,-l; ; did not > vote for him. 1 look upon drinking as an art, and think that no man is fit to be president of , this great republic who is not select as to his liquors. Boss Tweed was a regular epicure. It was a real pleasure to see him drink the choice wines he loved so well. They did him good, poor soul, and one of the chief causes of his premature death was being deprived of his hock and soda in the early morning.; Its use was against the prison rules, you know. He often amused himself of nights, when the cares of office were thrown off. by breaking large French mirrors with bottles of champaene and paying double for the damage out of his own pocket. Carl Scliurz is fond of negus (hot sherry) as, strangely enough, George W. Curtis and other leading Mugwumps are. Senator Edmunds drinks punches, and in fact most of the seuatois, as 1 found when I tended bar in Washington, have their own idiosyncrasies in the line. of drinking. But, after all, Americans are poor creatures compared with many Euro peans I have seen. The Grand Duke Alexis could put more cobblers under his night-dress and go to bed sober than any one 1 know of except Lord Lome. He told me if he stayed a few months longer in this country our beautiful whisky would make a republican of him. Lord Lome , was the . finest drinking man of the age. He had a marvelous faculty for tossing off hot punches without winking. He came into an up-town house one day, some years ago, and called all he could see to drink with him. Yon may not believe it. but he disposed of forty-five cocktails while stand ing at the bar. He laid out Boss Tracy, 'rim Valentine and Jimmy Carroll in no time, went down to . dinner and 'swiped' two bottles of champagne,. came to the bar again • and took three rum punches and went to bed — . "Drunk as a lord?" "No; sober as a judge, I assure you." Scalping Does Not Kill. Fort Keogh (Mont.) Letter. It has been said that a man cannot live after being scalped. One of the Crow In dian scouts with Custer, before that brave officer met his fate, was caught by a party of Sioux alone on the prairie and scalped alive. His enemies cut a pear-shaped piece out of the crown of his head, and left him writhing in agony, supposing he would, of course, die. Notwithstanding all of which the redskin recovered, and at last accounts was living with his people on the Crow reservation and doing well. There was an old hunter in Western Montaua whose cabin is located on the eastern slope of the Rocky mountains, who had his hair raised some years ago by a band of savages, and yet he lives and thrives in most astonishing good health. The old fellow's name is Ganzio, and by reason of his advanced years would, in the natural course of events, have white hair now, only that he has no hair at all to speak of. Still, what little he has got is whitened or gray, the rest of his head, "where the hair ought to grow," being as bald as a billiard ball. To be exact, Ganzio did not lose his entire scalp, but only a portion of it. The proba bilities are that he could not have survived with the loss of the whole top of his head. Some few years ago, when Sitting Bull was master of this country, Ganzio was the guide of an emigrant party en route to Fort Laramie, Wyo. . . All About Bees. It is said that bees can predict the weather. They do it with their little tails, and curiously enough, they always make it warm.— Burlington Free Press. "Bees," says the Scientific American, "can remember a man." We didn't know that, but we have frequently had reason to believe they could dismember him. — Brook lyn Eagle. . It is said that the sting of a bumble bee contains only one-fiftieth part of a drop of poison, but it sends it home with as much enthusiasm as if it were a gallon. — Burling ton Free Press.

These are the very words found under lined in the last ; testament of this great man. Up to the sixteenth century royalty, as well as the common people, slept upon straw sacks, the Romans having introduced this lux ury into England; before that the skins of ani mals were used. The largest bed is the great bed of Ware, which is so frequently alluded to in English literature, which will accomodate over twenty sleepers. , The most uncomfortable bed ever known was probably that of Pro crustes, a Greek robber. He was in the habit of putting his victims to bed on an iron couch, to which he adapted each one by cutting off the legs of them who were too long and stretching out those who were too short.
