"Ivan the Cobbler" Returns to
Lead His Cossack
NEW YORK, April 0. A. little old
man sat on a little old trunk on the
deck of a departing liner and wept,

any one approached, like a child who
is ashamed of his tears.

That was why the little old man
sat and wept apart and looked out
across the broad sea jath, which led
to the Narrows, with eyes blurred and
very wistful. "Old Ivan the Cobbler"
was going back to lead his adoring
Cossacks once more. The dream of
twenty-two' years was coming true.
Twenty-Two Years In Exile.

he was only an old man, who cried
lest his heart should break for happi

companions still shouted the name of
the new-born land, he told the story
of one who had wielded the sword
for his Ciar and had been repaid.

Dr. Oswaldo Cruz, Who Made
Rio de Janeiro Sanitary,
Revered After Death.
Mail). Eight or ten years ago Dr.
Oswaldo Cruz was the most hated and
abused man on the South American
continent. He died on February -II,
and it is doubtful if the death of any
one man has ever moved Brazilians to
such deep and sincere grief. Col
umns of eulogy fill every news
paper, tons 'of granite monuments will
make this praise permanent, and his
memory will be that of one of
Brazil's great men.
AH qf this hate and love was gen
erated in Dr. Cruz'a administration of
the government department of public
health. His greatest accomplishment
was the sanitation of Rio Janeiro,
changing this great port from a pest
hole to a "health resort. His methods
caused the hate, and his results
brought the love of the people.
From time immemorial this city
had periodically been visited by the
dread plague, yellow fever. People
died like flies sometimes hundreds
in a day and there seemed to be no
escape. Narrow, crooked streets,
house airless and filthy, all without
the- slightest attempt at sanitation,
made an everlasting breeding place
for'the pest.
Dr. Cruz, a practically unknown
doctor, was appointed to the director
ship of public health in the govern
ment's attempt to free the city of the
plague, and he waa given carte bltnc
to do as he saw fit.
Prescribes Bitter Remedy.
The remedy Dr. Cruz prescribed
was bitter. It meant the discarding
of old ideas, of established customs.
a complete change In the city's way
of living. To begin with, the entire
downtown part of the city waa torn
n1 remode,,. streets were wld
ened and straightened. Houses were
demolished by the hundreds and'oth-
fers remodeled to admit air and light
and other requirements ot iijuut-m
sanitation. Rigorous Inspection was
made on all new work. Building
laws were passed with health as the
main nhirt and they were enforced.
Tii "Mnsauito Corns" wu estab
lished with a personnel of more than
2,000 men equipped' wifh modern ma
chinery and methods for the sole pur
pose of killing mosquitoes and de
stroying their breeding places. Food
supplies and the handling thereof
were taken under government super
vision. Compulsory vaccination was
established, and finally a great pub
licity campaign was waged to educate
the people in sanitary ways of living.
The result was that Rio became a
Spotless Town, and Is probably the
cleanest city In the world today.
Being stung by a mosquito today
causes more wrath than a personal in
sult. Every house In the city has am
ple bath accommodations and they are
used. The streets are wide, clean and
beautiful. And, greatest accomplish
ment of all, the people understand
and are fervent supports of all the
sanitary laws.
Great DlfBrnltles Met,
But all this waa not accomplished
without heartbreaking difficulties.
Proprietors did not enjoy being ousted
and their buildings demolished. Re
modeling the city cost millions of
dollars that the people had to pay.
The prejudice agalst cleanliness was
almost a superstition. Vaccination
was a horror for most of the common
The wrath aroused by Dr. Cruz's
radical methods was astounding In its
proportions. Hundreds of attempts
on his life were made. He was fired
at by would be assassins and stoned
whenever the public recognized him.
His house was the object of assault
seversl times. His escapes from death
were often truly miraculous.
But he stuck to his guns. He fought
the people for their own good, and
the government had the wisdom to
back him up.
It required twelve years to estab
lish sanitation In Rio. When at length
it was accomplished the people woke
as though from a long aleep. The
hatred of Dr. Cruz was changed to
confidence and veneration. And as
the results of his propaganda became
fully apparent the love of the people
Increased until It Is doubtful if there
is a name In Brazilian history that
wakes the enthusiasm of that of Dr.
Dr. Cruz was born In this city. He
was educated in the schools of (his
city. In Paris and In Berlin, and was
forty-four years old. Under his renre
sentatlon Rio was awarded first prize
at the last International congress of
municipal nygiene at Berlin.
ur. Cruz bore an International remi
tatlon as a scientist. Among those
who will hold his name In the most
grateful memory are the foreigners
who come to Brazil, because It was

Soldiers Shown They Cannot
Serve Country by Running
Needless Risks.
March" 2 (by. mall). French soldiers
are being taught today that the small
est and most useless thing a man can
do for his country is needlessly to
give her his life.
Next to 'getting killed, the smallest
thing he can do for her Is needlessly
to g,et wounded.
The greatest thing he can do for
his country is neither to get killed
nor wounded, but to keep on fighting
sp long aa his country has need of his
A soldier killed Is a soldier who can
never be replaced. Such is the axiom
of the French army, in its effort to
reduce to the minimum the risks
taken by its soldiers in battle.
The French military authorities also
proceed on the theory that the great
majority of soldiers are brave and
only a few are not. Instruction Is
now given French soldiers as to how
best to save themselves for th,elr
country. As much attention is given
to those who are inclined to over
expose themselves as to those Who. in
an effort to protect themselves,
through lack of bravery merely incur
new risks and dangers.
The net result has been largely to
overcome the fear that Is always to be
foifnd in a certain small nercentare.
of men and to reduce to a surprising
degree the French losses In action.
Big Shells May Be Harmless.
One of the first lessons the French
soldier Is taught In the art of self
preservation Is that big shells, al
though about the most terrifying
things In the world, can to a brave
and intelligent man be rendered prac
tically narmiess. it has been demon
strated that a big shell. In spite of
wie terror-inspiring- roar of Ita ap
proach. Is likely to do very little harm
unless It strikes the precise spot
where a soldier may be standing. This
happens only In & small percentage of
ins Lances.

burst, the fragments nearly all fly
upward, so that with the approach of

The teaching of these things to
the French soldier not only Increases
his own natural bravery, but ren
ders him Intelligently self protective.
The supreme contempt that the aver
age soldier has for an approaching
shell, and the bigger the shell the
greater .the contempt. Is one of the
results of such Instruction.
Tangfcf ( Avoid Trenches.
In nearly all charges across open,
shell-swept ground, the soldiers,
sooner or later, come up with enemy
trenches that run in the same di

In the direction the troops are
charging. Is not only a very human
but a very Irresistible one. The sol
dier, therefore; has to be taught
that the soldiers who leap into those
trenches seldom. If ever, come out
alive. Nine times out of ten they
have been prepared In advance by
the Germans, who have placed a ma
chine gun at the far end In the hope
that the French would leap Into
them and be mowed down like ao
many sheep.
The reduction to the minimum of
the risks of battle and the conse
quent losses was also one of the prin
cipal considerations In the complete
change by .the French military
authorities since the beginning of the
present war of their methods of at
tack. Instead of the troops dashing
forward now side by side, they leap
to the charge with an Intervals of
from ten to twenty yards between
each man.
This not only lessens the chances
of their being killed by flying bullets,
but makes it possible for every man
to leap into a convenient shell hole
for the purpose of escaping from ex
ploding shells. In fact, the whole
charge may develop Into a leap from
shell hole to shell hole.
The natural bravery of the French
troops caused many of them for a
long time to have contempt for the
gas mask. These over brave ones
were forced to enter enclosed rooms
filled with gas and find out for them
selves the full value of the mask.
Both bravery and cowardice are at
a 'minimum of Heedlessness In the
army today.
