HOW TO SLEEP OUTDOORS.
Pamphlet of Directions Issued by
"Directions lor living and sleeping in
the open air," !h the title of a pamphlet
being sent out l>y the National Associa
tion for the Study and Prevention of
Tuberculosis to its local representatives
in all parts of the United States.
The pamphlet in meant to be a hand
book of information for anybody who
desires to sleep out of doors in his own
home. It emphasizes the fact that out
door sleeping is as desirable for the well
as for sick. The booklet will be sent
free of charge to any one applying for it
at the headquarters of the national as
sociation in Ne* York, or to the secre
tary of any local or state anti tubercu
Some of the subjpcts of which the
pamphlet treats are, how to take the
open-air treatment in a tenement house;
bow to build a small shack or cabin on
a fiat roof in the city; how to make one
comfortable while sleeping outdoors
either in hot or cold weather; how to
arrange a porch on a country house,
and how to build a cheap porch; the
construction of tent* and tent houses;
the kinds of beds and bedding to use in
outdoor sleeping, and various other
topics. The book is well illustrated and
The object of the book is to suggest
particularly to consumptives who can
not secure admission to a sanatorium
how they can be treated at home under
the direction of a physician. In view of
the fact that there are less than 25,000
hospital beds in the United States for
consumptives ami fully 300,000 who
should be in hospitals, the uationa! asso
ciation urges that more attention be paid
to sleeping in properly provided places
at home, and that in every case the best
be made of the patient's environment.
