ABSTRACT

This, as the title indicates, is a small book of cheerful and scientifically correct advice to those who find themselves infected with the bacillus of tuberculosis. Six years ago the author found himself in this class, and he has made a courageous and, we hope, successful effort to fight the infection and to regain his health. The brochure is entertainingly written, and in a cursory reading we have found his statements in accord with the best teachings. Certainly the author has read wisely on the subject. Some apt quotations are made from both modern and ancient writers. Celsus, who lived in the first century of our era, is quoted as saying: "As soon as a man finds himself spitting and hacking on arising in the morning, he should immediately take possession of a cow and go up into the mountains and live on the fruit of the cow." Proper tribute
