placed on the rods, with narrow spaces 1 between them, and may be used either side up.
The mattress or bed is placed on these slats..
The springs D and the spring-slats E render the bottom exceedingly elastic, easy, and noiseless.
Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent In a bed-bottom, the slats E, each notched at the ends, and having a spiral spring, F, in terposed between the divided parts composing its body, in combination with the cross-rods D and the springs B, having eyes G, and curved to adapt them for attachment to a bedstead, as shown a'nd described.
