BEDS OF AJL.L STATIONS. •O*B« of th* FecolIarlUoo In Former Time*. The bod« ef tbo nucioutw had In goner«i few pftculiaritiofl to riiHtingtiish thoro f«)m our own olmplor forais. Both the Greeks uud tho RomaiiB hiul their bods supported on frames that re- •omblod onr niodora bodBUjada; feather «»d wool roattrosnoa wore common, and the bcd-olothing, in tbo luxurious period ot oach cation, was richly doco- rated with elaborate nncdlowovk. Tho Britons, _whon conquered by Comar, slept ott iklnn, after the manner of our North American Indians; but at a later period they mivdu two of straw sacks as teds. Tho aneiont Egyptians htwl a exmch of peculiar sbajw and a profusion of soft cushions and richly embroidered drapery. Most of tho beds mentioned in tho -Bible were probably of tiw ordinary simplo kind. During tho middlo ages beds wore nade of coarse ciuivas nnd filled with ttntw or loaves. Thofio could bo opou- •d and the littor rc-mado dally, as is the custom to-tiny with tha mnttroBsos In tbe old-fashlonod inns of Franco and Italy. Tho bedsteads wiro low-postod •and usually hod a canopy at tho hood. ' In tbo Bayous tape«try £dward tUo Confessor in represented lylag upon a vti{i«d soot, his Uoiul supported by wraarod pillowH, antl tho oanopy over hli head is attachod to tho wall. Scott, III his romance df "Ivnnhbo," describee WM of tho bed* in tjio ruauslou of Cod- Tie tbe Saxon, M consisting of a rude ••hntch or bod-framo, stuffed with olean •traw and accotuodutcd with two or three sheepskrns by way of bedolntho*." Tbo bonoe of the auclout English fentleraan woo not, OR a gonortU tiling, provided with bedrooms. A chamber or •bed wa« built against tbo wall that inclosed tbo innnMou and iu dependencies, and in this little coll the lord and hi* lady slept. &oui»Hluws there wa» another ohaiahor of thn tamo kind bnlU lor tho daughtoi* or young ladles <*f the bonno. Many .illtjsioiis to suob *bedrooms nrfl found lu Chauncor. In 4|je "MHIor's Tain" tboro it tuch a ly tpread.' 1 Aa a general thing, th* young mon of tli» bouM and th» gne«t» slept on taUUM and Unahv* In th* greet hall whera Woolen oorvr- let* «• hlanksM were provided for warmth. Servant* and attendant* »lept en th« floor. Later on, In .the time of the Tudor*, th« "four-poite" bwlstewl, nu immense p\«o« of furniture, having a canopy •upportetl nt each corner by the posts, became tho fashionable »loi>piug-conch. Sumo of the old wills luuiitiou "posted sett work bedsteado." Thcee paneled bedsteads were winetiinos of elegant and massive architecture. The columns resembled huge balusters, and 'rose from mjimre diulo bases, and all lh« frame-pieces were carved with decorative mo Wings of various put- terns. On some of tbe earlier bedsteads tbe column terminated with figures representing tho four wungelifit*. In A medituval bnllnd there is mention made of "the four gospellorous (gospi'lcrs or evangelist*) on the four pilloues (pillars) and hoods of angels, all of one mould." The invocation still in use in some of the English country places is an echo of this old custom: Matthew, Mnrfe, Luke and John, BteM the bed tbat 1 Dloep on. Two ungnl* at my hcnd. Four anKol* round my bed; Two to wiitcli and two to pray, A«d two tu carry ray BOIII nway. Under these great "set work" bed- st«adn were' put trundle-beds for the body servants nnd ehlldren. It is relate<l of n yjNUiisli pngu who went to England with his master in the time of Queen Elizabeth, thai one day i^ult wnmtering about tl.o spacious mansion, be entered the room* where the mail's were making the beds, and spying the arrangements of the sliding b«ls was qnite taken with them. In his own country he hod slept on- straw in tlte hostler's loft, but in England he had found that rather uncomfortable on account of the cold. So be says to his mneter: "Sir, there are a sort of little beds under the great beds in this house, which they say are for sen-ants: I pray you to suffer me to lie in one of them." In the sleeping chamber wiv« usually a '.'perch," answering to an old-fashioned clothes-horse. On It, says an old writer, "hang your clothes, mantles, frocks, cloaks, doublets, furs, winter clothes, and of summer." Shakspcare's "second best bed,'.' with "the furniture," which he be- qnoathed to his wife, Ann Hatliuway, was undoubtedly one of those huge Elizabethan Jjedsteudx with canopy, curtains and square pillows. The furniture consisted of the "hanged, beds," harden sheoto, of fino flax, "flock beds covorlota," "pillow beers" and "counter points," so named from the fact that tho squares were In contrasting colora. The woll-to-do gentleman of the late middlo agos kopt a good supply* of bedding. In "The Taming of tho Shrew," Gremio glibly names over the furniture of his country house, and is careful to include bed apparel. In Ivory coffors I have stuffed my crowns. In Cyprus chOBta ray arrays, counter po'nU, Ooatly apparel, touln and cuuopics, Pino llnon, Turkey eushioim, bws'd with peftrl, Varlauoo of Vonloo (told ijnd needlework. Tho "Great Bed of Ware" mentioned by Shakapcare is probably the largest bed in the world. It is of tho Tudor stylo, twelve foot square, of solid oak, nnd elaborately curved. For three centuries or more it has boon preserved at tlui inn of ' tho Saracen's Head in the town of Warn, iu Hert- fordshire. As many iw twelve persons aro mud to have slept in it at one ti mo.
