most in the meat line, viz., chicken
lamb, etc, are scarce with a tendency
to fly the ordinary man's coop. The

By WILL M. ROSS
Afflicted with tuberculosis, I went to El Paso in 1908, supposing that the
climate, alone, would cure me. It proved a costly supposition. It was only
after making many costly mistakes, that I learned the way to health. That
others may profit by and avoid my experiences, I have endeavored, in this
book, to show YOU how you can carry into practice wherever you are the
methods that the cure depends on. Read it; your physician will endorse it.
