IRELAND REFUSES TO AID DEMOCRACY
Apparently all the people of Ireland are signing the
anti Irish conscription pledge. This while Ireland is de
manding home rule for herself. It may be possible that
if granted absolute seit government tne msn people
would do better at governing themselves than the Rus
sians have so far. but it is doubtful. The island contains
two elements that will no more mix and unite than will
oil and water. It would be literally a cat and dog sort of
government that would have the opposing elements at
ach others throats continuously. For nearly a year,
given a free hand, the Irish leaders have been trying to
form some sort ot government under whicn ail irisn
people could live in peace. So far nothing has been done
toward accomplishing this other than to arrive at the
conclusion that it can't be done. At the same time the
Irish people apparently do not see that before there can
be heme rule tor any people on eartn tne menace oi
Prussianism must be forever removed. They do not real
ize that if Great Britain is beaten Ireland is also beaten.
They fail to see that it is not England's fight they are
asked to make but their own, and that of the world's
democracy. Any people, Irish or other, who hesitate to
take up arms to defend their liberties and those of the
people of the world do not deserve freedom. If Ireland
ever gets home rule or anything else in the way of gov
ernment, it will be because England, France, Italy, Bel
gium, Portugal and the United States have made her
fight for her and beaten off the beast which would have
devoured her had they not done sp'; and this while she
coward-like refused to take any risk in the fight. The
Irishman has been the soldier for freedom for gener
ations, and it is hardly less than a crime that in this strug
gle for the world's freedom he is misled and stands
supinely to one side and dare not strike for himself.
When Baron Von Richthofen, the king of the German
aeronauts, was killed a few days ago, a British aviator
crawled through a heavy barrage fire and brought the
body back with him. Yesterday the body was given burial
with the same honors that would have been given a
British officer. Six aero officers and men acted as pall
bearers and a squad fired three rounds above his grave.
The allied- airmen attending the funeral brought a
wreath inscribed: "Daring airman, gallant foe." This
was recognition of a brave man, though an enemy, who
fought fair. How few in the Prussian armies would be
given such a tribute from their erstwhile enemies. This
tribute paid a German under the circumstances is such
that nothing could be higher or finer. Can you imagine
the Huns so treating a dead enemy?

been strong enough to put up a fight against the kaiser.
Even Spain is treated badly by the country she has done
much for. It is about time for the whole lot to act in

While the censors are busy cutting out dates and
names of places from letters and throwing an air of mys
tery around everything, they permit such speeches as that
of Colonel Frazer Hunter to be spread broadcast. He
said at a speech at a dinner of the University of Toronto
men, that "Great Britain has no reserve army to send to
France. The 7,500,000 men enrolled by her since the war
began have fought and died on 37 fronts. When Field
Marshal Haig said she had her back to the wall, he meant
just what he said." That is the kind of statement that
the German press would make much of and the man who
made it deserves to be severely punished. If it is false
his punishment should follow as of course, and if true, he
is certaihly giving information that gives aid and com-!
fort to the enemy.

The Woman Who Changed
By JAKE PHELPS
NEW THOUGHTS AND IDEAS.
The supreme court of the United States has declared
that West Virginia must pay the old state the portion of
the debt naturally belonging to her when the new state
left her. The sum is, as we remember it, is about $15,000,
000. The court says if the lebt is not paid within a
year the United States will compel her to pay it. That is
easy enough said but to enforce the threat is a different
matter. One thing is certain, and that is that the state,
as such, cannot be levied on and "sold under execution.
People who live on Germania street in San Francisco
are trying to have the name changed to Geranium street.
No doubt it would smell as swee; under that name, or

mine at Tesla in Alameda county was on fire. This is the

the United States." Some judgment that little fellow has.

that they could all be seen.

This is an Intestinal parasite
which is nourished by the nutrient
fluids In which it Is bathed.
It Is present not only In man, but
In the hog, cow, rat, dog, numerous
varieties of fish and other animals.
Two varieties are common in man,
Taeniae and Boturiocephali. A
tape-worm suggests a strip of tape,
being composed of oblong .segments,
averaging about an inch in length.
He has a small bead, a thread-like
neck, and on the lower surface of
the head are suckers and rows of
Booklets by which he attaches him
self to the intestinal mucous mem
brane. : Unless the head and Its nearest
segments are expelled, he will re-"
produce himself within three or four
The segments are passed with the
Intestinal evacuations singly or in
strings which may be several feet
Thore may be one worm in one In
dividual, or there may be several.
Tape-worm is so common in some
localities that there are tape-worm
doctors who spend their time and
energies in ridding people of them.
The common form, Taenia solium,
is seven to ten feet long and, When
mature, has from 200 to 450 seg
ments. His head Is as large as a good
sized pin's head; his neck one-half
inch long; the segments near the
head contain both male and female
generative organs and ihey produce
enormous numbers of egg3.
The eggs are taken up by the hog
and developed in his stomach or in
testine, a minute head growing out
of a minute cyst
This larva is carried by the blood
to the brain, eye, liver, muscles or
skin, pork which contains it being
known as measly pork.
When eaten raw, or slightly
cooked, or in sausage, it is followed
by the development of the tape
worm ir the juices of the stomach or
intestine, of the person eating it, are
not efficient in destroying it
Taenia mediocanellata is de
veloped in the cow and encysted in
her muscular tissues.
One "who cats the raw beef of such
an animal Is HkMy to develop this
variety of tape-worm.
Bothriocephalus latus, the only
variety of this kind of tape-worm ta
human beings, is sixteen to thirty
feet long; has 3000 to 4000 seg
ments; and has, for intermediate
hosts, the dog or the cat, or fish like
the perch and the pike.
Children suffer from intestinal
worms, but seldom from tape-worms.
One may have tape'worm and be en
tirely unconscious of it, so far as
symptoms are concerned, or there
may be symptoms of a pronounced
