the most eventful and historic character.
lint, routining ourselves to modern times.
we ilud uumeroug instances in which these
honored fabrics, aart from their domestic
u, as affurdinfr reposn to the weary, have
been only too frequently associated with sad
memories, and been the scene of many an un
raveled mystery. Thus, cases li ke the murder
of the young princes in the Tower at once
occur to us; and Shakespeare's tragic scene.
where Othello smothers Dealemona, Is too
well known to need comment.
Novelists, again, like Wilkie Collins, bave
used the bed to good purpose in some of their
sciisatioiial stories, as in the case of the mys
terious bedstead which, after the manner of
a clothes prew, is made to screw up, so as to
sinotiier iu unsuspecting; occupant. Then
there are beds wliwe surroandiiigs have had
the reputation of lieinfr haunted, and refus-
sleep to auy one sutliciently bold to com
mit his weary frame to such an uucanny
quarter; while fairy lore abounds in tales
and legends of those who, while seeking the
sweetness of repose in some enchanted bed,
bave hail vkious revealed to them of won
drous unearthly joys in the land of dreams.
Nine idea, again, of the importance for
merly attached to certain bedsteads may be
gathered from old wills, where we find bed
clothes and sheets as things specially prized.
Thus an Anglo-Saxou lady gave to one of
her children "her tiest bed t-urton linen, and
all the clothes belot-ing to it," and to an
other child she leaves "two chests and all the
bed clothes that to one belong."
hen Cardinal olsey took a lease of
Hampton Manor and manor house in the
year 1.114 be received twenty "bedsteddis" as
Inrt of the demise. Entries of this kind are
very numerous, and show in w hat high es
teem the comfort and niceness of their beds
were held by our forefathers.
It may be noted, too, that in days gone bv
many allusions occur to a smaller bedstead,
w hich, rolled under the larger one, was de
signed usually fur a valet or servant. Thus
every render will remember the well known
speech of mine host of the Garter in "The
Merry Wives of Windsor" (iv, .), who says
of KalstafTs room, "There's his chamlier, bis
t o-e, his castle, his standing bed and truckle
tied." In the old manuscript of the romance
ol the "L'onte d'Arto:.," the count lies in the
bed under the canopy, while the truckle bed
is occupied by his valet.
Of the many further bedsteads which have
acquired au historic fame may be mentioned
me in the liednxun of Mary, Queen of Scots,
at llly rood palace. It is covered with red
damask, and is popularly stated to bave been
slept in by the unfortunate sovereign, al-
houpu there is considerable doubt on this
At Iluniley. it may be remembered, is pre
served the Unlstead occupied by Queen Eliza
beth on her visits to the lord treasurer. Bur-
iU. It stands in a room in the weetern
first floor of the mansion, known as Queen
hliznbeth s licdrooru, anil is distinguished by
green velvet hangings. Paul Hentzner,
in bis visit to Windsor iu the year 151M, no
tices the beds belonging to former princes as
measuring eleven feet square, and speaks of
Queen Elizabeth's bed, with its curious, rich
embroidery, as not so large as the others.
A famous bedstead of the Fifteenth cen
tury was long preserved at Leicester and is
generally supjxwed to have been slept on by
jucuam 111. ine under part of it formed
bis military chest, and, as most readers are
aware, the discovery of the treasure a cen
tury afterwards occasioned a barbarous mur-di-r.
But none of the coins discovered were
f a later mint than this reign. Further
more, it U said by Pennant that a stump bed
stead kept in Berkeley castle is the same on
which the murder of Edward II was com
uiitted. Then there are the royal beds of Hampton
court, with their rich hangings, and the fa
mous bed of U are, iu Hertfordshire, ha, loug
ago become proverbial. Nothing is known of
the original history of this enormous bed
stead no less thau twelve feet square and
which, in years past, formed one of the dis
tinguishing features of the inn known as the
Saracen 'a Head. According to one popular
tradition, this gigantic piece of furniture was
made by a certain Jonas Forbrooke, a jour
neyman carpenter, and presented to the royal
family in the year 14C3, Edward IV reward
ing the industry of the donor by granting
him a pension for life. Anyhow, many
strange stories have centered around this bed,
and a popular legend says that one Harrison
Soxby, of Lancashire a master of the horse
to Kiug Henry VIII having fallen deeply
in love with the daughter of a miller residing
near Ware, swore that be would do anything
to secure the object of his affections. The
piece of chivalry coming to the ears of the
king, who happened to be passing through
v are on nu way to bis lavonto retreat at
Hertford, it was decided that the girl should
bestow her hand on bim who would consent
to sleep all night in the bed of Ware, pro-
viuea that be was round there in the morn
ing. Harrison Saxby accepted the proposal.
but on the following morning he was found
on the floor, covered with bruises and utterly
Among f urther stories connected with this
great lied we are told that when the town
was full, in consequence of soma largo hunt
ing or wedding party, it was invariably
made use of. But, adds Mr. Tinibs in his
Abbevs, Castles and Ancient Halls of Eng
land," whenever so employed its occupants
were always unable to obtain their wished for
sleep, being in the night subject to all kinds
of pinching, nipping aud scratching, till at
last the bed became deserted. The reason as
signed for these unpleasant experiences is
that the spirit of Jonas rorbrooke always
hovered about his favorite work, and being
annoyed at the undignified use it was put to
by the good people of V are, prevented any-
oue from getting a moment's rest. At Enule
have teen long carefully preserved the cost
ly bed and furniture which are aaid to have
been placed there for the reception of James
II. and in the king's bedchamber is the state
