It is to be expected that men who live in health resores would make some special study of climatic influence on diseases, and through experience of many years reach some definite opinion of the effects due to climate. It is well known that the physicians of the southwest have decided views in favor of climatic treatment with their own special brand, and I make no apologies for being classed as one of them. Space does not permit, nor is it my intention to give explanations and descriptions of the factors, atmospheric conditions, and the principal types of climate, or descriptions of different health resorts; all of which may be read in recent publications under my signature. It would seem better to give the indications and contra-indications for climatic treatment of tuberculosis and to give the classes of cases suit able for this type of climate.
Climatic treatment must deal not
