The same % custom was adopted by the reformers in Ireland; and hence all % those who wore their hair short were denominated "Croppies", % and were the marked objects of government vengeance. In % truth, clipped hair constituted secondary evidence of treason, % and was sufficient to cause the arrest and ill treatment of any % person daring enough to adopt it.
