2327. Tues Jul 15 1879: L.B. Prindle, Agent for the Novelty Spring Bed, has taken the room in Cranston's block, recently vacated by Levy, and we advise all who want to see a good spring bed at a low price, to give him a call. The springs are made with a double coil, and are placed where they receive the greatest weight of the body, while the double slats give a good spring clear to the foot of the bed. At the foot, the upper and lower slats are clamped together, so that the foot cannot kick up, no matter where the weight comes on the bed. While the bed is the simplest in the market, and one of the cheapest, it appears to be the best of the whole and one not likely to get out of repair. It will work on a cord or slat bedstead, and only two slats are needed to support it. Call and see it at Cranston's block.
