Columbia Inquirer, March 4, 1908. I haven't had the pleasure of nursing a bed bug yet, and I am not looking forward to it either. Anyway, apparently the little bloodsuckers are at least useful for getting rid of unwanted house guests. I'm assuming "bestality" is supposed to be "bestiality," but probably isn't meant in the paraphiliac sense. I.e. Mrs. Wymer is simply saying her daughter married a beast.
