That la the Job R. A. Gilmore, first
lieutenant of the Philippine scouts
tackled two years ago. Now he's
back in the United States on a fur
lough, but will soon return to his Job
of taming cannibals. He was the
first white man to go into the wild
district of Mindanao and stay. Two
Dthera attempted the work, but one
died immediately, and another after a
few weeks went violently insane as
t result of the harrowing experience
and the isolation.
Fourteen years ago Gilmore was
a porter in a Michigan hotel. To
day be is deputy governor and tribal
Justice in the district of Davao in the
laland of Mindanao, the sole law
maker, executive head and Judiciary
of the district.
Entering the army in 1899 he
worked up to his present commission
and in 1910 was sent into the interior
of Mindanao to civilize the wild men.
With a little band of native scouts
Gilmore tramped 126 miles through
the Jungle and over mountain and
established camp among savages who
had never seen a white man before.
He at once began to gather these
savages from the mountains into
groups, naming a native as a captain
over each gtoup. They were taught
to till the soil, their weapons were
taken from them, and an effort to civ
ilize them was made. Today 10,000
of these wild people are gathered to
