This little book goes over the field of tuberculosis in an interesting way, but it would almost seem as if the author had lost sight of his audience. Nurses are destined, in his opinion to fulfil important functions in the campaign against tuberculosis. Whether they will find use for the pathology and therapeutics contained in the author's lectures is somewhat doubtful. The opsonic index, methods of diagnosis, and tuberculin and sanatorium treatment are discussed at considerable length. The author considers that ordinary sanatorium treatment is an antiquated method compared with the method of graduated labor. In regard to drug treatment he is commendably conservative. He rejects iodin, cod-liver oil and creosote. Directions for the use of tuberculin are given with considerable detail.
