In Praise of Earthworms
If the earthworms were to pub
lish a magazine, some dramatic suc
cess stories would be recorded.
It would tell, for example, the re
markable career of John G. Worm.
Born of humble parents, In dark
surroundings, he managed by his
own efforts to push himself up to
the surface. There he was spied by
Fortune in the form of a robin,
which snatched him high into the
clouds. His moment of elevation
was brief, but while it lasted the
vision was splendid.
It would tell of Frederick L.
Worm, who was working along
quietly one day when an upheaval
tossed him to fame and glory. Suc
cess was attended by pain, as is of
ten the case. He was impaled upon
a fishhook and carried away to be
Immersed in a strange element
There his life ended, but not before
he had done the biggest job ever
achieved by any member of his fam
ily. The fortune he landed devour
ed him, but it was a big fortune.
To the other worms these stories
might be discouraging. "Fame Is
for the few," they would say. "Noth
ing ever happens to us. We just
stir around awhile and die."
It would surprise them to know
that a book was written about
worms by the great scientist Dar
win. Their surprise would be in
tensified If they were to learn that
this book makes no mention of the
exceptional members of their tribe.
The few worms that are carried
into the clouds, or succeed in land
ing big fish, are dismissed by him
as of small importance.
But the great mass of unknown
worms, who spend their whole lives
beneath the surface of observation,
he hails as the most important crea
tures In the world.
If for one year they should cease
their industrious digestion of the
leaf mold and their Incessant stir
ring of the ground, no crops would
grow, and animals and men would
I think that Darwin's book on
earthworms should be a part of all
education, along with the inspiring
biographies of the great. It would
tend to teach us humility. We hu
man beings who walk so proudly as
monarchs of the world what are
we, anyway? Beneficiaries of the
worms, without whose leave we
could not live a year.
As for fame, it is stimulating, and
lifts the spirit of the crowd. But
phall we despair because to most of
us it is denied
Beneath the surface life is car
ried forward by the sustained loy
alty of the mass. And who shall
doubt that there are Purposes as
far beyond our reckoning as our
lives which they make possible
are beyond the vision of the worms?
Scrape and boll some young car
rots. Boil till about half done, then
drain dry, and grate them. Add
enough thick cream sauce to bind
the puree together, with one egg to
each cup of the mixture, sugar and
salt to taste. Set away. When quite
firm, form into croquettes, dip In

ing the dipping if necessary. Fry in

paper, press It well down and set

one in grated cheese, then in beaten

It grows on people the habit of
"taking something" for every little
discomfort they happen to feel.
Self-dosing is never the wise thing
to do; you would not employ a phy
sician to treat you who made no
pretense to any knowledge of treat
ing the sick' or indisposed; now,
would you? Then why do it to
A diagnosis of any indisposition
is necessary before any sort of in
telligent treatment can be institut
ed. Even the intelligent physician
may be puzzled over the actual
cause of a given complaint, often a
comparatively trivial, yet a very
annoying thing. Not long ago I met
a lady who had spent over $500 on
a peculiar neuralgic headache with
out more than temporary relief:
she had taken every variety of
"headache tablets" that she heard
of seriously impairing her blood
and weakening her heart very per
ceptibly; I suggested examining her
nasal passages and sinuses; "O,
there's nothing wrong there I have
no catarrh," she insisted.
Nevertheless a few treatments to
reduce the swollen turbinates cur
ed the headache. '
Many elderly men in the western
section of our country are sure they
have "prostate trouble." They hear
their symptoms accurately describ
ed daily -over the radio, by the ad
vertising miracle-worker; they hear
the promise of absolute cure by a
simple operation they make their
own diagnosis, and drug themselves
frantically without benefit; they ac
cept the fakir's "simple operation,"
paying for it in advance with all the
money they can scrape together;
they reason that, If the quack were
not honest, the government would
not permit him to broadcast his
ballyhoo! A nasty mess, isn't it?
They do broadcast just the same;
we are so busy trying to avoid for
eign entanglements that we haven't
time to protect our people from

their lives because of their own gul
libility, according to newspaper re
ports, in one of our western states.
