Tuberculosis, of all communicable diseases, has in the past decade enlisted the best efforts of medical workers in all civilized countries. There have resulted laborious scientific research, detailed clinical study, effective organization for its control, valuable investigation of a sociologic and economic nature, and an almost inexhaustible supply of literature.

Unusual opportunities for comparative observation sometimes affording approximate accuracy of conclusions are given to physicians residing in favorable climates. From an experience of eighteen years in Colorado, I venture to allude to certain recent tendencies of the profession with reference to a disease in which unfortunate results are often quite conspicuous.
