Few medical men will now dispute the fact that our great remedies in
the treatment of tuberculosis are pure air, rest and food. The more abundantly
the former can be given the greater and faster will be the progress towards
recovery. Pure air in greatest abundance can best be secured by tent life.
It is a pleasure to witness the rapid improvement when this mode of life is
inaugurated. The sleep becomes more restful and refreshing, the appetite is
improved and the vigor and vitality greatly increased.
