Transcript The Council and tbe Council House frames with a sharp iron collar preventing the wearer from sitting, lying, or sleeping. A visit to the Castle of Nuremberg shows us that the rich merchants were ready to use similar arguments to the robber-barons. When the prisoner had been brought into the torture chamber and the professional gentlemen (the Hangman and the Secretary) had decided how much the patient could bear, operations began.

Burning candles held under the arms were (am rfective and the favour ite Spanish methods, the Strappado (suspension by the behind the back with weights to the feet), pouring water down the throat and applying fire to the soles of the feet were in frequent use. We find many varieties of the "little ease" or rack in the Castle. The severity of the instrument is attested by the signature of our Ci es before and after being submitted to that ordeal. But even less attractive than this I have been the peine forte et dure.
