Tank Worms

Tank-Worms, the young larvae of the Guinea-worm (g.v.) or Filaria, a parasite common in man in tropical conutries, where it causes the disease known as haematuria. Its popular name is derived from the fact that the larva lives in mud in the bottom of tanks and pools.

“Since the fall, God will not trust us with our own salvation, but it is both purchased and kept by Christ for us, and we for it through faith, wrought by the power of God.”
