CORDELE. GA., FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1890.
Tla.e Hair Sn.a.lne.
Newspapers claim to be the educators of the people, and yet, I not long
ago saw in one a story to this effect:
A man was riding through a swamp looking for some stray cattle, and
noticed that his horse, while standing in shallow water, left some hairs
entangled upon the side of an old stump.
Not long after, the man having occasion to return to the place saw that
the hair had turned to a snake, which escaped before he could kill it.
A few months lator the horse strayd to the same place and was swal
lowed by the snake—his own hair—which by that time had attained enpr
mons proportions. '
While I know that no sensible man would for a moment regard the above
as true, yet there are many men of good sense who believe that the hair
worm originates from the hair of some animal.
When quite a small boy, I began to experiment for the hair snake or
worm, with all kinds of hairs, in all manners of places ; under stones and
on stumps, in running and still water, but always with the same result. Af
ter months of trial the hair remained the same.
Being somewhat inclined to study the natures of insects, I was one day
watching a large grasshopper which acted in a peculiar manner for a while,
then with a sudden spring into the air expired, as if something had struck
My curiosity lead to a dissection, which revealed a long hair-like worm
concealed in the throat of the grasshopper. I had not only found my
hair w r orm, but discovered that it is of a parasitic nature. Next I placed it
in water where it lived to attain a length of 6 inches, finally depositing its
eggs. I have found since that the “gordins” or hair-worm always de
posits its eggs in stagnant water and sometimes in shallow wells, but this
is not hurtful to man. While parasitic nematoidea, or worms, do inhabit
the intestines of animals, the gordins is parasitic only to insects.
The hair-worm is called “gordins” from its resemblance to the famous
knot tied by gordins, king of phrygia. * * *
